I’m not supermum!  |  Blog

Recently I have had quite a few comments and messages calling me “supermum” and it has been really playing on my mind. I am not supermum... in fact I am sooooo far from being supermum! I am just a mum who using A LOT of make up and is lucky that if she plaits her hair before she goes to sleep, it looks half decent when I wake up. Just because I look “put together” doesn’t make me supermum. I do what ever other mum does in the morning. I get my kids up, fed, dressed and out the door. To me that is just being a Mum. A supermum is a different breed of Mum.

To me, the supermums of this world are the ones who have children who have special needs and life changing illness.

They are the Mums who leave an abusive relationship with nothing but the clothes on their back even though it may be the hardest thing to do but they do it for the sake of their babies.

They are the Mums who work 3 jobs so that they can provide a comfortable life for their children.

They are the Mums who have physical or mental limitations themselves but yet never let that get in the way of being a amazing parent.

They are the Mums who loose their partner through awful circumstances but yet still manage to keep their life together for the sake of their children.

They are the Mums who put their motherhood second to being doctors and nurses to look after our babies.

They are the Mums who have babies who aren’t in their arms but who are up in Heaven.

They are the Supermums! Not be just because I look like I have my life together. That just makes me a Mum. To every Supermum out there, you are amazing and I am in awe of you!!
