Sometimes when you are a mum, you forget you are a person as well.
Now don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t change being a mum for all the tea in China, but why does being a mum mean that I have to change.
Everything about me has changed, from my clothes, make up, to what I drink.
Why is it that now I am a mum, before getting dressed in the morning I think “can I wear this now I am a mum?” Before becoming a mum I would wear leopard print and skull print, but now I am a mum, I feel it would not be appropriate, so it is replaced with a nice flower print top and sensible leggings.
Why now I am a mum do I stop before putting on that extra flick of mascara, and winged eyeliner and play it safe with some lip gloss and a single coat of mascara, and if I am feeling really fancy I might put on some eye shadow.
Why now I’m a mum do I feel guilty when doing something for myself or having a beer makes me feel like a naughty school girl.
Yes, I am a mum, but I am still me.
