I don’t know what got me thinking about it, but the last days or so I’ve really been thinking about how much I have changed since becoming a mum. Obviously parenthood is life changing, I didn’t expect it not to be. Now three years in there are days I think I’ve got this parenting thing sorted, mostly I don’t, but that’s life.
I have literally lost track of how many times I have said ‘I just push through it’ this week. Don’t worry, I’ll push through it. It’s OK, I can push through it. Well you know, you just push through it. Again, and again and again.
As a parent I think that’s just what you do. As a working parent I have to. as a working parent who is also working very hard to not be a working parent I have to push through it even more!
Now I’ve seen loads of people’s #rockingmotherhood lists and boy are these women rocking it. I spend so long worrying if I’m doing it right, or feeling like a down right failure (3 year old who will not use the toilet unless he’s naked, regardless of what I do and try, fail!), but as you know I am big on positivity and this tag is all about the positivity so I’m in.
The guys over at Rattan Direct have recently put together a survey trying to find out what do parents do to unwind around the home.
I’ve taken it and it literally took about two minutes and you don’t have to give any personal details. Not even your email address.
I would be interested to see the results when they come in. They are asking questions about how and where in the house busy parents unwind. For me it’s my sitting room with a glass of wine. Although wine wasn’t an option during the survey, surely I’m not the only one.
Oh my word tomorrow is your birthday and you will be three years old and I literally don’t know where the time has gone.
You have changed so much this year it is hard to know what to say to you.
More than anything I want you to know how loved you are and how special you are. I hope you know this anyway and it is doesn’t need to be written down.

SQUEEZING OUT JUICE FROM KIDS’ DIETS MAY DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD
Research shows 100% fruit juice drinkers are 42% more likely to meet their 5 A Day and it could help 4.7 million in UK towards achieving the target.
With 91% of children currently failing to meet the 5 A Day target, new analysis of data from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) presented this week at the Nutrition Society Conference in Dublin indicates that 100% fruit juice drinkers are more likely to meet the 5 A Day recommendation.
You may have guessed from the name of my blog, Any Way To Stay At Home, I did not want to be tied to the office after the birth of my son. I don’t think of myself as a Mumpreneur, but maybe I am.
I like many mum’s wanted the freedom to be my own boss and work from home. It has not been easy. Not at all. In fact just this week things have gone wrong for me (post to follow).
Despite all the up’s and down’s, home is still where I want to be. I don’t want to have to worry about my son being ill and how I can balance caring for him and a job. I love being able to go to everything without any worries. I am in charge of my schedule. Mainly I really love just being able to maximise my time with him.
For me working from home is the way forward. But what if you want to work from home bit know what to do or how to do it?
Well here’s where I pass over to Josie from Mumpreuner Inspiration, to tell you all about herself and her new course.
