Happy hump day everyone! I thought today I would share a little lighthearted post documenting things all Mums do daily!
Inspired by a TikTok I made on Yorkshire day, in which I shared 3 things that all Mums from Yorkshire say to their kids, I had a little think and came up with this post. I tried to think about what I do daily and then created this list of 10 things all Mums do daily, so I hope you enjoy it!
Whether it be because my kids are kicking off again or I have walked past that pile of neatly folded washing I put at the bottom of the stairs for the 34543th time today, I sigh, ALL THE TIME and other Mums do too.
Ok, so I don’t lie about anything too serious, but when my kids are like “Mum, do you like my picture of you?” I have to say ” oh, darling that is amazing, you have really captured my essence ……….” Just like when we lie about the Tooth Fairy and Santa really 🙂
3. Write lists
Shopping lists, cleaning lists, to do lists, a list of lists I need to write? If it can be written down in bullet points or a numbered list, I do it. It makes me feel organised when I really am just winging it
4. Speak to our own Mums
Yep, I ring or speak to my own mum everyday. Whether to rant about my little angels or to ask for something, I have to catch up with my Mum otherwise is it even a real day
5. Say no
I spend alot of time saying no these days, I don’t know if it’s just because it’s the summer holidays or because Maisie is suddenly asking for really weird stuff at weird times of the day but I do spend most of my day saying no to her. With Arthur I kinda have to say no a lot because he is at that funny exploring stage. Either way I say it about a million times a day
6. Have a sneaky break
Ok, so I sometimes go to the bathroom when I don’t even need it just to have two minutes to myself, anyone else?
7. Window shop, online
I basically just trawl the internet everyday, looking at something I already looked at or trying to find something that I have looked at every possible version of before deciding not to buy it anyway. This can be done almost anytime of the day. My personal faves were when breastfeeding Arthur in the middle of the night or whilst I’m rocking him to sleep for his afternoon nap.
8. Justify every decision
Mum guilt is real, I spend a tremendous amount of my day telling myself I did the right thing or made the right decision and if that fails I will get my husband to reassure me.
9. Feel proud
Every day my little bundles of joy make me so proud. There is no other feeling in the world like it and I feel proud of them both every single day
10. Feel loved
There is nothing like the love of your kids, no matter how naughty they have been or how much they have driven you up the wall, nothing makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside like their loving smile and a big hug from them at the end of the day.
Being a Mum is a difficult job, so just in case you needed to hear this after reading about these 10 things all mums do everyday, then here it is – You got this, MAMMA!!! Is there any other things all Mums do daily that you can think of? let me know in the comments 🙂
