Mother’s Day in the UK this year is Sunday 31st March – will you be doing anything in particular?
Motherhood is complex. Insanely rewarding, yet exceptionally hard work at the same time.
It isn’t just the actual mothering that is complex though, it is the way we are perceived as mums as well. There is no longer a ‘typical mum’, or a simple definition of a mother. We are expected to be everything to everyone all of the time, to take on every role in our lives with ease.
We are criticised no matter what arrangements we have as mothers and no matter what our work/life balance is.
As mothers we are told we have lots of ‘choices’ but really what we have are tough trade offs.
Nothing about modern motherhood is simple or easy, but we are incredibly lucky to be mothers and experience everything that that means.
So let’s celebrate how lucky we are to be mothers, to have mothers (if you are lucky enough to still have yours), and to be raising the next generation of mothers.
I feel very lucky to be raising both a girl and boys. This year, for Mother’s Day Jasmine Harper sent myself and my daughter matching bracelets from their collection. It’s lovely to have something the same that we can wear together.
