Love being a parent linky


I found this on pintrest and I just had to share it with you. As you all know being a mummy has its ups and downs. I seem to harbor a lot of guilt. Guilty that I don't spend enough time with Emily. Guilty that I don't do enough with her. Guilty that we don't go to baby groups. Guilty that I don't have enough patients with Emily. The problem is, seeing this just brought it all back to me. I don't need to feel guilty about these things. No one is perfect. I know that I am the best mummy to Emily that I can be. However knowing this and coming to terms with it are two completely different things. 

Before I was a mummy I never knew I would love being a mum. Before I was a mummy I never had to hold a someone still for jabs - which let me tell you make you feel so so guilty. I never looked into teary eyes and started crying myself. I never held a sleepy baby all night, just because I didn't want to put her down. I never got really happy over a little grin, or was really proud of the fact my baby could sit up by themselves. Being a mum is hard, it's the choice you make everyday to put someone else's happiness before your own. To teach the hard lessons, and make the right choices even when your not sure if the right choices are the right ones. 

There is so many things that I love about being a mummy, and I think sometimes it's important to remind yourself of these things. I think it is really important to remind yourself of a few reasons you love being a mummy or daddy, so I'm going to start a linky. I want you to link a post that makes you proud to be a parent, It could be a post on their achievements, progress or even snap a picture, it's completely up to you. Anything that makes you happy, proud or even grateful for being a parent. The linky will start on Mondays and close Fridays.
