I see you mummy trying to make the most of a bad wardrobe because you still can’t fit into your pre-baby clothes and/or spend all your money on your family. You are enough.

I see you mummy with toothpaste down your top and cereal in your hair, and wait, is that snot on your jeans? You are enough.

I see you mummy late for work for the third time this week because someone filled their nappy as you were leaving the house, had a tantrum about a pair of socks, or you forgot a gym bag. You are enough.

I see you mummy being pulled in several directions all at the same time. You are enough.

You are enough. You are important. You do matter.

It’s just a phase

planning for baby

This is a phase of life for us. This can be a really really hard, challenging, crazy phase of life. Some days there will feel like there are no rewards, that no one cares – but just look around you.

Do you see?

i see you

Do you see mummy, those little eyes that look up at you? Those eyes think you are perfect. They think you are more than enough.

Do you see mummy, those little hands that reach out to hold you? Those hands think you are strong. They think you are more than enough.

Do you see mummy, those little smiles that make your heart fill with joy? Those smiles think you are fun. They think you are more than enough.

Do you see mummy, those little people finally asleep in their beds? Those little people feel safe and content. They think you are more than enough.

Some days might be hard, but we know that everything is worth it. We don’t often talk about it, the pressure to be perfect might feel too much, but it isn’t just you.

I see you mummy, you are enough and you are doing your best.
