This too shall pass..

To all those mums out there who haven’t slept a solid 7 hours since their baby was born..

To all those mums out there comparing their child’s development accomplishments with other babies and questioning whether they are doing something wrong..

To those mums who look through their instagram feed and self doubt that they are raising accomplished functioning children..

To those mums who just can’t seem to shift those last few kilos after carrying your child for 9 months…

…and who still have those stretch marks everyone said would fade..

To those mums who feel lonely and abandoned..

To those mums who feel ostracized by their work places or bosses..

To those mums struggling with the weight of having a little one (or two or three) depend so heavily on them…

To those mums regretting the decision they made to have children because they feel like they have lost who they are…

To those mums who are struggling financially with having a child (or two or three)

To those mums who feel isolated from their partners or spouses..

To those mums who need a break from the word “mum” and who would like to go to the bathroom in peace…

To those mums trying to have another baby and it’s just not working..

To those mums who are going through IVF with baited breath..

To those mums who are finding it hard to put time aside with the Lord because there are just so many dishes to be washed..

you are lovely
