I am just sitting down after a very busy day, and was thinking how many jobs us mums do on a daily/weekly basis, plus all the extra little things we do. How many hats do you wear each day?
Off the top of my head here are a few I do without thinking about
I prepare breakfast, lunch and dinners every day, plus make bread, cakes, biscuits etc as extras to the daily food preparation
Clean the house, there is always hoovering, mopping, dusting, kitchen to clean, bathroom to clean
Have grouped, the food shopping, washing, ironing, changing beds etc into this category
Paying bills, budgeting, pocket money etc
There are the school runs, driving the kids to their friends, parties or any other social event they need taking too
Running their diaries, for sleepovers, parties, school assemblies, school trips, days out
If you have more than two children, you are always having to referee arguments and fights. If like in my house where you turn your back and they start.
It is always Mum they want when they are ill, and we try to do our best to make them better
When they come home from school, and have had an argument with their friend, and it is the end of the world
We do all this and more, daily without even thinking about it. Plus today I have also been a labourer, moving gravel from the front to the back garden and photographers assistant, as my husband was trying different lighting.
It is no wonder us mums, are stressed and tired at the end of the day. Just looking at all these jobs we do on a daily basis without even thinking.
Do not ever let anyone make you feel bad for just being a mum. Just remember how many hats you where in a day.
