The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Face of Parenting 

Today I am going to talk about “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” faces of my parenting!

It’s easy on social media to portray the good that goes on in your life! Of course, that’s what it is for but life is not always picture perfect!

I love being a parent. It has honestly made me a better, stronger person! But I don’t enjoy it all the time. Some days I just want 10 minutes to myself as I feel overwhelmed by constantly being chatted at and touched! Some days we just spend the day irritating each other (Aoife has a very similar temperament to me, unfortunately for Luke!) I’m only human (albeit an irritable, tired, pregnant human) and we are all allowed good, bad and ugly parenting days. I do my best to follow the idea of “gentle parenting” and for the best part I stay calm but sometimes my voice does become raised (not that it fazes Aoife haha) and I instantly feel guilty. I hate being a shouty, grumpy mama! But for the most part I would say I am a happy mama and so full of love for my baby I could burst!

Anyway, I think that’s enough of my rambles for today haha!
