"I probably did look like an excellent example of motherhood when I put that photo up on facebook of the girls doing some painting yesterday. But there was no photo posted when Carl arrived home that night to find them eating nutella out of the jar and no dinner in the oven. I am a good Mum, who has shit mum moments… pretty much the same as every other mum who has ever lived." Why do I hate being called a good Mum? I've written about it over on the blog (link in profile)

  • squishedblueberries@contentmum haha! Not sure I'm quite ready to wear it on a t shirt. Could be the newest trend in mum gear though. 'Shit mum' apparel 😂 you might be onto something! Xx
  • squishedblueberries@beautiful.tribe yes! I think we get 'good' and 'super-humanly perfect and indestructible' confused a little bit sometimes 😉 xx
  • squishedblueberries@lifeatcookscabin oh thank you, I think that's the thing though, sometimes I feel like a shit mum because I have shit moments, but I'm trying my best so that's what makes me a good mum xx
