What We Mums Really Want This Mothers Day (and What NOT)

What is Mothers Day really about?

Mothers Day is supposed to be about showing gratitude to the Mamma for all that she does. Right? Yet it can often just end up being an added chore for mum in some households. The poor Mamma is running around trying to find that perfect something for her own Mum & Mum-in-Law. Getting the kids in gear to write a card or draw a picture.

9 tips to helping you manage the Mumlife juggle

No one Mother is supposed to do this alone. You are supposed to share your juggle

Years ago a well intended friend of mine made the comment “I would be so pissed if we had a baby and I went to work all day, then came home to a messy house. If (my partner) is home all day, I would expect it to be completely sorted” 

Yes it easy to label this as male ignorance, but certainly he is not alone assuming all mum’s have endless time to be organised. Until they become parents.
