As we draw closer to the end of the year and Christmas is almost upon us I have been thinking about the gift of giving. We’re always told that we should give thanks for what we have and I totally agree. I am 100% grateful for my child and my life but it hasn’t stopped me from thinking about all the extra gifts babies give which I am maybe less grateful for.
By far being a mother is one of the hardest things I have ever done. Today as I write this my head is heavy and I feel like the bags under my eyes are half way down my face. I know I’m exhausted and I feel like I haven’t slept in years. There are times when I think that I can’t do this. I often wonder how single mothers cope alone and I admit I have a huge amount of respect for them, they deserve a medal!
