    Definitely needed this today. Busy potty training my twin boys, and lets just say it’s not going so great. Thanks for helping us feel like good moms. #PicknMix

    This is a lovely post and so true. I think sometimes being a mum can be really really hard and all we need is someone telling us it’s ok, you’re doing a good job.xx #picknmix

    Such a true post and one us mummies aren’t always good at doing…telling ourselves we are doing an ok job. Since becoming a mummy the guilt has been overwhelming some days, I think it’s part of being a parent…oh joy! #picknmix

    Always so much pressure on us as parents, with such contradictory advice its easy to feel we are doing it all wrong. Its important to stand up and say we are food mums evwry now and again xx #picknmox

    This is such a beautiful post that I think every mum will see themselves in. I think the fact that we worry about being good enough makes us all good mums. Great post and an empowering read. Thank you x #Picknmix

    Oh this is so lovely, bought a few tears to my eyes its so acurate as to how i’m feeling a lot of the time (my 5 month old has just gone off to sleep, desperately hoping she doesn’t wake up until I’ve had a chance to finish drinking my brew!!) Beautiful meaningful writing, thank you 🙂
