My greatest accomplishment. #Blogtober16

I am taking part in Blogtober16 and will be writing posts with various themes/prompts throughout October....


When I was in hospital waiting to go for my c-section with Becky I can remember crying on the shoulder of a midwife saying what if I am a rubbish mother, what if my baby doesn't like me, I don't know how to be a mother.....I really needn't have worried....It turns out I am quite good at this mothering lark...

Without a doubt being a good mother is my greatest accomplishment....I know it's so cliche but it's true.

I am far from a perfect mother....I shout when I know I shouldn't....I am sometimes short tempered, I feed my girls junk food, I let them play on the computer for too long and I over spoil them....

I think I am doing a good job though....My girls are kind, thoughtful, pretty sensible, happy, polite and do well at school....They make me so proud every day....

I have taught both my girls to cook....Just simple meals. Beans on toast, scrambled eggs, toasties and things so I know they have the basics to keep them selves alive....

The both like a variety of music. 70's, 80's, 90's 00's. Rock, pop, classical, musicals and country.....I have taught them well....hehehe I love it when they sing a long to a random old song....

My girls know they can come to me and talk to me about anything....Some of the discussions we have are deep and also things I would never dare talk to my mother about....I am so glad they feel confident enough to talk to me!

I haven't accomplished much in life but I am a good mother to my girls....

  1. Good morning Kim, I love this. I love the way you acknowledge that you are a good Mum and that you are also human. I am sure you have accomplished other things too ( meal planning is a major accomplishment in my eyes!), but if being a good Mum is the only thing any of us accomplish in life, there can't be much to top that.

  2. That's not a bad accomplishment, bringing up children and being a good Mum, well done. #Blogtober16

  3. This is a lovely post and it sounds like you are doing an amazing job. I'm really looking forward to teaching my kids how to cook - I'm determined that they will leave home knowing how to make a few good meals.

  4. I think you underestimate what you've achieved! Being a good mum is, in my books, THE most important think. It's what I know I strive for and I like your confidence. Sometimes you don't do things by the book but you have such a good relationship with you girls, that's better than anything else.
