One of my biggest worries. The one that keeps me up at night replaying the day in bed and checking off what I did wrong. Worried if I’m not good enough, worried if my judgement is wrong, worried if I’m yelling too much, worried I’m too soft, worried about getting all the housework done, worried I’m spending too much time on housework, the list goes on. It’s just a big cloud of worry sat on my shoulders. -
Everything gets a bit overwhelming sometimes and that’s OK! I get the job done; I feed them, change them, bathe them, cuddle them, play with them. Yes, not every day is perfect. Maybe I didn’t get all the things on my list done for that day, I’m not supermum, I’m just a mum trying to do what’s right for my kids. Even if I don’t know what that is. -
Feeling franks arm tighten around my neck as we’re cuddling or hearing Edward say ‘I love you, mummy’ makes that worry just disappear. Because I am doing a good job, I am good enough. There’s is no better mum for my kids other than me! I have the soul to love them on the hard days. I have the motivation and love to give these kids everything they need. I have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all again, even when I’m exhausted. I am their world and they are mine. On the days I question myself I need to remember, I got this. - -

Proud mum moment!
Kaiboy’s first lesson in with the older kids, I’m so proud of him, he rides better than me and he’s only been on a horse for 6 months and only has a lesson once a fortnight.
I know I’m bias but I think he’s doing an amazing job for a 5 year old beginner.
He’s just so confident on the pony, he has no hesitation, he rides with one hand if he has to scratch his face or fix himself 😂, then goes back to riding properly, he controls the pony well, he can get him to take one or two more steps if he’s just a tiny bit too far away from an activity he’s doing, he stands up and leans out of the saddle to reach things with confidence and great balance.
I’m just so proud of him, Kai doesn’t have great confidence in much that he does, he gets nervous and shy’s away from things like this, he goes off on his own and plays with the toddlers at footy and he just floats at Swimming squeaking and trying not to get his head wet 😂, but on a horse his confidence just oozes out of him, he just shines, big grins the entire lesson.
I’m so glad my boy has found his ‘thing’ and at such a young age, riding will give him so much happiness in life and I can’t wait to see where it takes him x
He’s loved horses since he was a baby, always drawn straight to them.
Have any of your kids found their ‘thing’??? And if so how old were they when they did?
Tell me your stories!
So that is middle school done for this one and on to a new school in September.
Am I the only one who finds the end of the school year emotionally exhausting? All the madness of the last couple of weeks coupled with the children all moving on to new schools, new classes etc. I always feel like I need the six week break to recover and prepare for the next year. .
I can’t believe this was a year ago! It feels like so long ago, so much has happened since then, we have had such a roller coaster ride the last 12mths but it feels like our hard work is starting to pay off and great things are about to happen.
I am so grateful for our little family, so proud of us for keeping the kids from killing themselves @coreypaynerw lol! I think that makes us pretty good parents! .
