My New Years resolution

My New Years resolution is to get out more, do more with Kory as I find we do the same thing most days and instead of just saying I’m going to do something, actually do it.

If last year taught me anything, it’s that life is too short and time goes really fast.

I feel so guilty that the last time I took Kory to a play group was when he was something like 6 months old and in the blink of an eye, he’s now 17 months old. I feel like when I go to these types of things, I’m being judged, I think people are looking at me and assuming I’m ‘just another young mum’ (even though they’re probably not thinking that!) I’ve never had much confidence and I’ve always let it hold me back, I wish I didn’t care so much what people think of me but I guess that’s just the way I am.

I’ve decided that this year though, I want to do things differently.

By not taking Kory to play group, it’s Kory who’s missing out and I feel like I’m to blame for that. So, this morning i’m going to be brave and I’m going to take Kory to play group. This may not seem like such a big deal to some people but it is to me and who knows, this could become a regular thing for me and Kory!

  1. I don’t go to playgroups or anything any more either, even when I’m not working. I feel so judged for my age by the other mums (which I know it ridiculous but it’s so unfortunate people can make you feel like this.) I don’t know how old you are but I’m 23 & I own my own house/work full time etc. I don’t know why I feel so inferior to these people!

    1. I’m sorry to hear that, I know how hard it can be when you feel like that because I feel the same. I have been judged by other mums when you think they’d understand how hard this motherhood thing is without throwing judgment Into the mix too. I’m 23 too which I don’t think is that young but look a lot younger than my age so I just assume they’re judging me. I’m just gonna go today and see how we go on xx

      1. How did you get on lovely? I hope it went well. I look younger too.. I think the problem is no one talks to you so you can’t even tell what people think of you! My mum tells me it’s all in my head but how can it be if others feel that way too?? Xxx

      2. That’s exactly! And My mum tells me the same too, sometimes I think it is just all in my head and then other times I don’t. It actually went quite well and Kory really enjoyed it xxx

      3. You’re right, it’s not always easy but it’s got to be done I suppose! It was actually okay and I felt a little silly afterwards for avoiding going for so long but I have been in situations before where I’ve been made to feel uncomfortable! Just one of those things I suppose… xxx
