Parenting more than one

Parenting more than one

I can vividly remember sitting in my car, 40 weeks pregnant with my second child, looking at my first child and crying my eyes out. What had I done? I loved my first born so much, how could I possibly love another child even half as much? Did I have enough to give to another child?

It's ok....to put yourself first

It's ok....to put yourself first

True self-reflection is rare…but when you have the time and space to look at your life and relationships, it can be an absolute gift. It wasn’t until I was about 8 years into my parenthood journey that I realised that self-care, both emotionally and physically, had been put on hold for such a long time, that I had lost a real sense of who I was. At the time, I can not deny that I was in a very lucky position…from the outside I had it all...3 happy and healthy children, a stable and loving marriage and financial security. Why then did I feel so lost? The answer was actually very simple…. I had forgotten about me. I didn’t know who I was apart from being a mother and wife.
