Finding it hard

I almost feel ashamed to say that some days I find parenting hard.

Kory is actually such a good baby, people tell me how lucky I am all the time but some days I still find myself struggling. I hear other mums saying things like

‘I don’t know how people can find parenting so hard’

‘what is the big deal?’

and that makes me feel like a failure.

I think as mums we should be supporting each other, not ripping each other down. I’m glad that parenting is such a walk in the park for some parents but that isn’t the case for everyone. Those people who find parenting such a breeze probably have parents who can look after their child/ren for them at any given time or their partner is probably home more. My mum is a great nannie to Kory but she works herself, I can’t rely on my own Nan and grandad as that wouldn’t be fair and when my partner has been at work for almost 12 hours, the last thing I’m gonna do is put on him when he gets home.

So yes I do find parenting hard sometimes. And I’m not afraid to say it because I’m the one who looks after my child day in and day out and yes it’s a struggle but you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.

If you too are a mum who feels like you’re finding it hard, ignore what the other people have to say, just know that you’re doing a fantastic job and the credit is all yours!

  1. I hear you. Parenting is hard, and anyone who says otherwise is lying haha. It’s lonely, mind-numbing at times and downright stressful. But it’s worth it. I’m not ashamed to admit that I find parenting hard, we’re only human, and some days are just worse than others! It’s not all sunshine and rainbows! I hear it gets easier, but we’ll see haha! You’re no less of a good mother for admitting you find it hard sometimes x


    1. You’re absolutely right. Sometimes I just feel alone and that I’m the only my mum in the world who feels like this when actually, i’m not alone and other mums like yourself and totally relate. And thank you x


  2. Of course it’s hard! But like you said, I wouldn’t have it any other way either. Whether it was a great day or a rough one, I go to bed every night with a satisfying feeling that life is way better with my little one in it and again I WOULDN’T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY! Great Post Mama!
