Last night I asked my friends to finish the following sentence:
‘You know you’re a Mum when………’
They didn’t disappoint!!
Some of the answers had me in absolute fits of laughter. Others reminded me of things I’d forgotten about when the kids were babies. Most importantly though the one thing that really struck me was that I could relate to every single one of them. We are all different, from all warps of life, but we all face the same struggles with our kids. I posted the question on my personal Facebook page and suddenly friends of mine, who had never met each other before, were laughing comparing stories about their kids and experiences of motherhood. It was awesome!
Here are some of their answers. ‘You know you’re a Mum when………….
