    do you have a parents group? I started getting out to the library rhyme time sessions and other community activities at about the same time. It helped to see people and meet other mums, and my LO enjoyed it. I also found another mum who wanted to walk, and so we would take the kids in the pram for a walk.

    I have tried parenting groups but don't really like the competition and controversy that goes along with it so I try to avoid them at all costs to be honest! I have close friends with children so my son and I do socialise with other mums and bubs

    Jesskamay I could have written your post myself! Isn't t just amazing how reality changes what we had in mind.

    I left work end if my first trimester with the idolisation that I'd spend quality time with my two year old with educational play and visits to the park and really stimulate her and I'd be able to keep on top of the house and cook a hearty meal for everyone. Turns out none of the above are happening I'm so tired from being pregnant that I've caught myself letting TV babysit for me so I can lay down 😳 I don't do this normally and I hate myself or it.

    So if that helps you a little to know your not alone. So long as your son is happy healthy go easy on yourself!

    I was thinking today about how much of a lazy crap mother I am.

    To spend time with DD I will read her a book, watch a movie/tv show with her or maybe hangout nearby while she does something... Semi paying attention. Mostly not paying attention and just pretending to though. I also give her mini manis and pedis, cook with her occasionally or go on an outing but its not something that happens daily or anything.

    I find that I can only handle spending so much time with her (mostly because she talks such endless nonsense... And demands a proper response) before in like, "go play outside."

    I am lazy. I don't clean as much as I should and dinners can be quite slack.

    Mine is 8 in July... I think I was a better mother when she was smaller than I am now.
