Life is not always as it seems !! 

I went on my first outing with my two boys on Friday, we went to my friend Ruth’s house for a play date.
It was the first time they had met Elijah and she is due to have baby no. 2 in a week so we were all excited to catch up and talk babies and birth stories ( that’s for another post!)

We had a rather stress free morning, hubby had got Samuel up and dressed so I just had to dress Elijah feed him for the 5th time that day!! And get Samuel and myself some breakfast. There were no temper tantrums, and we got out of the house only 15 mins late !

We were met by lots of cuddles and lots of cake which was amazing, then we got down to what us ladies do best. . . Chatting !

We were chatting about the ups and downs, and how Samuel was adapting to being a big brother. Ruth my friend said to me ‘ well you look like you are coping really well, the photos on Facebook are lovely’

That got me thinking, if I’m doing this ‘blogging’ thing then I need to share more of the imperfect moments, not just on blog posts but on Facebook and Instagram as well. Because although I love my two boys and a lot of the time Samuel is a lovely big brother, there are times when I feel like I can’t cope and Samuel is an absolute terror!

So I promise to give you a more realistic view of A Norfolk Mummy raising two under two!

  1. We learn from those moments and I think there’s nothing wrong with sharing what’s not perfect. Life isn’t perfect anyway . Happy blogging!

  2. I think we all have points like that with blogging (and social media) where we realise we’re only presenting our best side. There’s nothing wrong with a mix of that, or honesty, and I’m sure you’ll find that balance soon 🙂 Thanks so much for linking this up to #DreamTeam!

  3. I like to share the not so great times as when people comment it makes me feel not so alone and human, and often people share there stories…which gives me a laugh and makes me feel better.
