You put your keys in the refrigerator. Pour coffee into the baby’s bottle. And breastmilk into your coffee. Sounds familiar? Chances are you are a sleep deprived mum. How many of these can you tick off your list?! #sleep #sleepdeprivation #sleepdeprivedmum

'I Have Learnt Not To Get Lost In Motherhood'
Two blue lines and a three-minute wait. That’s all it took for my whole sense of self to change. Fifteen years ago I discovered I was pregnant for the very first time. It shaped everything differently.Becoming a Mum means you see the whole world through fresh eyes.Did I change? No. But my priorities did. #imeverymum #motherhood #parenting
'I Doubt Myself 89 Times In The Day'
I doubt myself 89 times in the day and as my kids fall asleep I quietly apologise to them for when I was a grumpy mum at 1.53pm, a tired mum at 3.48pm and a wrong mum at 5.05pm, when I incorrectly blamed one or the other on something they didn’t do purely because frustration hit breaking point. I feel a contemptuous guilt as I pick up the half-eaten dinners of waffles and cheese, and promise tomorrow I will get them to eat broccoli. #imeverymum #motherhood #parenting
Motherhood Is The Greatest Leveller Of All
As a mother you will never work as hard for very little thanks, but you will never laugh or love as much either. I have to remind myself regularly that I am indeed a legend! I am being the very best I can be every day for my kids and that is all that counts.It’s not just about spending time with your kids – it’s about making the time you do spend with them count. #imeverymum #motherhood #parenting
Motherhood – Cloning Has Got To Be The Answer!
Motherhood is all about timing. One minute off-schedule, and morning traffic has backed up impatient drivers honking all over the place like demented geese. #imeverymum #motherhood #raisingchildren
Every Day Is A School Day For Us As Mums
I am a full-time mother, wife and soldier and not always in that order! Routine is very important in our house because my husband and I are both in the army. I want Oliver to still feel safe, secure and comfortable. One of the first things I learnt in the army is that ‘no plan survives first contact’. Simply put, this means that when I want to watch Xpose and Oliver wants to watch Peppa Pig, I have to watch Peppa Pig! #imeverymum #parenting #motherhood
‘Just When You Are Getting Comfortable, The Goalposts Change’
Motherhood also means a healthy relationship with my partner. We are far from perfect, but imperfect is our happy place. We have decided that chaos is, in fact, a bit of craic and to go with the flow! There is no pressure to be something we are not. Sanctimonious sancti-mommys definitely give me the guilts, but I know when to knock some sense into my own impressionable brain and know what works best for my children, my family and my situation.#imeverymum #motherhood #parenting
What Surprised Me? How Strong I Can Be When Faced With Obstacles
I remember lying in bed in the very early days, and it felt like every 20 minutes he'd wake up and need a feed. I thought ‘Oh my God, how am I going to do this?’ But looking back, I'd love to rewind the time now to those days and see his little face and his mouth covered in milk looking up at me while he drank away, how amazing are our bodies?! Thankfully I get to do it again when my little woman comes along in 10 weeks time! #motherhood #imeverymum #parenting
