To the mums and dads raising babies and businesses....

“Here’s to the mums and dads raising babies and businesses!”
A lovely woman I know said this to me today off the back of a post I shared about juggling kids and business life – and I couldn’t agree more.
To all those mums and dads who are franticly rushing through the mornings, battling spilt breakfasts and missing shoes – I see you.
To all the mums and dads pulling out their laptops after they’ve spent hours getting the kids through the dinner, bath, bedtime routine – to spend more hours working away instead of spending quality time with their partners, selves or friends – I see you.
To all the mums and dads feeling the un-nerving pressure as the laundry piles up, the house is a mess, as there is nothing to eat for breakfast, as you forget to message a friend of family member back, or as you wake up for the 4th time that night to resettle a baby or wandering toddler - I see you.
To all the mums and dads who are exhausted from spending their days and nights wondering if they’re spending enough time with their kids, or enough time on their business, making enough money, whilst making sure they eat healthy, drink enough water, exercise, run the household, keep up a social life all whilst being mindful and present of course – I see you.
You are doing a bloody great job. Although it may feel lonely, you are not alone. There are many of us and we’re all here to support you.
Let this be a reminder to go easy on yourself today, let go of the pressure and self-judgement.
If you’re struggling and need someone to vent to, or work through a challenge – send me a message or give me a call. I can’t promise to have all the answers but I will listen and support you.
