This week I have been wondering if quite frankly I'm just not very good at doing the whole yummy mummy stay at home domestic goddess routine. Most of my new mum friends seem to have embraced their new role finding it easy to multi task, keep their house clean, keep on top of the ironing, cooking wholesome healthy meals for their kids from scratch, baking cup cakes and organising play dates and coffee mornings.
These new breed of super mums and the yummy mummy phenomenon really does make it difficult for us mere mortal mums to live up to! My huge pile of ironing that was mounting on the dining room table how now been moved into the utility room ( I can't see it there), I managed to clean the bathroom today whilst hubby took out pop princess for a trip around Sainsbury's and I even managed to get a roastie dinner on the go, I flicked through Annabelle Karmels book and looked at the cup cakes and even texted some of my mum friends to arrange a day out. So I'm getting there :)
I was on facebook in the week and saw my office were looking after Stevie Wonder I felt my heart sink as I knew that it would be me looking after the project if I was back in work and I began to wonder what else I was missing out on. But then I caught pop princess standing on my bed, with one of my hats on, holding my deodorant can and singing to herself in front of the mirror oblivious to the fact i was watching her and then rock baby woke up and when I went to get her out of her cot she was beaming at me from ear to ear and kicking her little legs in excitement and I knew then I was exactly where I was meant to be.
