The Good Mum

A good Mum gives up on the pleasure of a glass of wine just to stand by the bouncy castle and govern the baby during the pubs family fun day.

A good Mum spends an hour sharpening colouring pencils and crayons and peeling stickers from coffee tables.

A good Mum goes to bed at 8.30pm to watch Peppa Pig because someone doesn't want to sleep on their own.

A good Mum gives up her iPhone for sticky fingers because the kid won't stop crying for anything else.

A good Mum insists on giving them that bowl of grapes even though giving them a biscuit would make life so much easier.

A good Mum sits through the crying when all they want to do is grab that baby, get them back up and feed them Malteasers in front of BGT all night.

A good Mum knows when it's time to stop breastfeeding. And doesn't do it for anyone else but herself and her baby.

A good Mum gets tired.

A good Mum gets guilty.

I ain't no perfect Mum.

But I'm doing okay.
