Are YOU a Supermum?

Today I happened across this article and have got myself surprisingly cross with it! (Hence a second blog in two days which is being typed very aggressively)

To generally outline the article, ‘research’ (not actual scientific)¬† has revealed a ‘definitive guide’ on how to achieve ‘perfect mother status’ (or 2000 women were asked what they thought made a perfect mum).

Apparently 57% of us mums know someone who has the downright cheek of attempting to portray themselves as a ‘perfect’ mum.
60% of the women asked find these women ‘irritating’ and almost 75% ‘dislike’ it when these mums ‘show off’ their achievements on social media.

Sleep, it’s for the weak.

You may recall a previous post where I spoke about how bedtime in our house could be a bit of a rigmarole. Well, we cracked it! We had a full week of going to bed and going to sleep brilliantly. I was going to allow myself to be smug then… Continue reading “Sleep, it’s for the weak.”
