One of the great things about blogging is you get to “meet” a lot of wonderful and great people through reading and networking. People from all walks of life, backgrounds and cultures.

I want to introduce you to Sarah, a 20 something mummy to a gorgeous little girlie, and a handsome little guy from Somerset, UK. She wrote the guest post I am sharing with you below. Enjoy!


Is Being A Mum Easy? No it’s not. It’s really not.  Some days it’s lovely & easy, & wonderful.

Other days it’s a massive ball of stress that just keeps building up and up until you need to explode.
Why don’t people talk about that? Why don’t we talk about the times when we feel like we might break down, where you just need to pop upstairs to have a little cry. 
Everyone always talks about the good times, the fun times, taking photos of happy smiley faces.
Because no one ever lets you see that side of their lives, you feel even more alone, and that makes it worse. 
Trust me, you are not alone. Sometimes it isn’t always rainbows & sparkles. It’s tough being a mum.
Being a mum is a never-ending job, no vacations, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, every year.
It’s hard. No matter how much experience you have, no matter your age, wealth, how many children you have, it’s hard for everyone at some point. It’s not easy all the time for anyone.

If I knew beforehand how hard being a mum would be, Would I do it again? 

Absolutely.

Being a mum completely changes the way you see the world.
It’s the best thing I have ever done in my life.
I love my children more than anything.
No, it isn’t easy being a mum, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

  1. Being a mom is the most difficult and rewarding thing that I’ve ever experienced. Sometimes, I find myself really tired from everything, but getting a hug or a kiss from the son makes it worthwhile.

    1. You are absolutely right Nina. I get so exhausted and I think I am about to break down, but when he looks at me, smiles, or holds his hands up for me to carry him and hug or hold him, it melts my heart and my exhaustion disappears. Parenting and motherhood is a whole new world for me, but one I am loving very much.

  2. When I was young, I often hear adults saying how being a parent, no matter how tired they were or how hard they had to work, as soon as they come home to see their baby, they are energized … among others.

    Fast forward to when I have my babies. I would come home really tired and when I see my baby, I AM STILL TIRED! – But I am happy.

    As they continue to grow, there were times when the joy cannot be explained, and all the trials and hardships are definitely worth it. And then there are days when I would ask myself why do I have to put up with this s**t?

    And then it got better as I had a better understanding of children. Whatever they did to annoy me does not now… because they were simply being children. 🙂

    1. Thank you for sharing this with me Robert. I am still quite new to motherhood and some days it is hard, some days it is fantastic. I understand you completely when you say you are tired but still happy. I get tired, exhausted, some days to the point where I think if I close my eyes standing up I would fall asleep in that position. But – I am happy. I have heard about the terrible twos and tantrums, and I know no matter how much people tell you the stories, you can never be fully prepared as each child is different. I try not to go by the book or by what the internet says are the “perfect” strategies for raising children. I do what I in my heart feels is best and right. We take the good and the bad and love more and more as they grow. I am so glad I am a mother.

  3. I agree with you. Being a mother especially to a new born can be real stressful that you cant even pee for hours. But nonetheless, its still the most fulfilling job ever especially if you see your children grow all decent and successful. I love being a mother to my boys. It can be real tiring but I wouldnt exchange it for anything else.

    1. MsBolin I agree with you entirely. It is the best thing I have done with my life and everyday when I look at my son it is the most rewarding thing. I am so in love with this little guy and I am sure when they grow up and make you proud your heart simply is filled with EVEN MORE love and joy.
