030: Why You’re Still a SuperMum, Even When your Kids are Being Brats

When things go wrong, don’t go with them

[Elvis Presley]


My son hurling a mini quiche at the String Quartet last weekend was not my proudest mummy moment.

Now I know small boys and String Quartets are not good bed fellows, but then it’s not every day your mother-in-law turns 80.

Some things you just don’t want to miss out on.

But does that incident (and the cringe-worthy list of others that preceded it) make me a bad mother (even though it felt like it at the time)?

Heck, no!

I’m real. I’m normal. I’m learning. And I’ll try harder next time.

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about what you should be telling yourself when your children are not behaving at their best.

This weeks challenge:

My challenge for this week is to prepare yourself mentally for the difficult moments that will inevitably arise.  We’ve all had them. It will always happen and will do again, so be prepared! Remember the one thing you can control is that little voice in your head.

Tell me what you think?

Tell me in the comments. How do you feel when your kids are being rat bags? Are you thinking negatively about how other people perceive you? Or are you positively spurring yourself on inside your head? Do you tell yourself this nightmare will be over soon or do you struggle to see light at the end of the tunnel?

Hope you enjoy the show.

Now, Go Conquer Motherhood!
