Kory is actually such a good baby, people tell me how lucky I am all the time but some days I still find myself struggling. I hear other mums saying things like ‘I don’t know how people can find parenting so hard’ and that makes me feel bad.
I think as mums we should be bringing each other up, not ripping each other down. I’m glad that parenting is such a walk in the park for you but that isn’t the case for some people. Those people probably have parents who can look after their child for them, their partner is probably home more. My mum is a great nannie to Kory but she works, I can’t rely on my Nan as my grandad hasn’t been so good lately so she’s his main carer at the moment and that wouldn’t be fair and when my partner has been at work for almost 12 hours, the last thing I’m gonna do is put on him.
So yes I do find parenting hard sometimes and I’m not afraid to say it because I’m the one who looks after my child day in and day out and yes it’s a struggle but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
If you too are a mum who feels like you’re finding it hard, ignore what the other people have to say, just know that you’re doing a fantastic job and the credit is all yours.
