My how our world has changed in 12 months. As I count down to Jaxon’s first birthday I’m looking back over these twelve months and all the ways I’ve grown and shrunk and failed and succeeded and changed and stayed the same.
Motherhood is a crazy, tough, beautiful and strange journey that I am fortunate to be on. I’m grateful every day but I also get angry every single day.
My kids amaze me and infuriate me. They bring out the best in me and five minutes later they bring the worst of me out.
We struggled to have kids and so feel exceedingly lucky to have them both. But at the same time I sometimes want to run away.
I know so many other mums who would nod along as they read this with bits and pieces, or maybe all of it, and they are my village. They know.
Motherhood is a privilege but it’s like that saying, ‘with great power comes great responsibilty’….sometimes the privilege sits so heavily on my soul and my heart but it really is true when they say it’s the hardest and best thing you’ll ever do, and that these tiny humans, despite their interesting moments, really do make it worth it x
