What the world sees on social media and what goes on in real life can be two very different things. I've come to realise that I’m pretty good at only showing people what I want them to see. I edit every word, crop out every flaw and filter every photo.
Having a baby is totally amazing, but let’s be honest for a second - it can be kinda scary, mega hectic and ridiculously lovely all meshed into one. There’s so much the books don’t cover and your friends forget to tell you. Here are some things I learnt on the job!
So being a mum isn’t really a job - It’s more like a permanent voluntary position; paid in love, hugs and amateur artwork. Despite the unbeatable perks of motherhood and that heavenly baby skin smell (omg delish) being a mother is no walk in the park (contrary to Instagram's flawless depiction). Motherhood is in fact the toughest and the greatest "thing" I have every experienced.
