034: Why You Should Lighten Up, Let Your Hair Down and Learn to Laugh a Little

[Mums] just wanna have fun

[Cyndi Lauper]


This morning on the 30 minute walk to school, I counted the number of times I moaned at my kids. 

I ran out of fingers and toes. 

But I’m OK with that, because I’m keeping my kids safe, I’m teaching them to be kind, I’m helping them to be compassionate. 

I’m bringing them up to be good citizens of the world, and I’m doing my job well. 

But at what point to I need to stop being so uptight, and start laughing a little? 

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about when it’s OK to stop being the mummy-police and start to let our hair down a little.

This weeks challenge:

My challenge for this week is to seek out a moment, where you can just say, ‘stuff it’, and let your hair down a little, despite the fall out that you’ll have to sort out later.

Tell me what you think?

Tell me in the comments. What did you and your kids have fun doing? What did you all laugh about together? And what we’re the repercussions?

I’m here to spur you on and help you as much as possible

Hope you enjoy the show.

Now, Go Conquer Motherhood!

    I LOVE this one! Such good tips! I am bad for always wanting to capture the moment on camera so I will be more mindful of this for sure :)
