Word to all the mothers out there. This one goes out to you …

I like an advertising campaign that makes me cackle and that I can identify with. The new Fiat 500L campaign is just that! A Motherhood rap that is dedicated to all those women who have to be all things to all people and live it large on a daily basis.
One of the reasons I took up blogging was to share in the trials and tribulations of parenting. The sheer untold horror and joy that is a daily occurrence.
I spent the first four years of motherhood covered in snot and puke, breastfeeding my babies in the early hours and suffering from acute sleep deprivation. On the rare occasion that I had the opportunity to sleep in I still woke at stupid o clock because my mothering instinct told me that if they were awake that I should be too.
At the end of each day I promise to try harder the following day. I still don’t sleep well, although my children do and even though I stopped breastfeeding six and a half years ago – the legacy is still with me. I shall say no more.
