Phew....my first post, I hope you like it.
Don't worry, I know I am not a 'Practically Perfect Mummy!' but I do want to be, after one day, a few weeks ago, my four year old son gave me a huge hug and said;
"You are 'Practically Perfect Mummy!"
Wow! It brought tears to my eyes. I mean he was completely wrong and of course I know it. But still, it was lovely to be told.
So I now aspire to perfection; but it is hard work especially with two young children constantly pushing the boundaries.
I keep promising myself that tomorrow I will shout less, moan less, complain less and more importantly spend more time laughing and playing with my gorgeous two children who are growing up so quickly.
But I still have days when I don't manage perfection; actually I can't think of any when I have managed to achieve it. To be fair to myself, the worst days are normally after a badly disturbed nights sleep (I swear my two conspire and plan whose turn it is to wake mummy up at 3am!)
I need to find more quality time to spend with them each day, and definately need to laugh and giggle more.
So in an attempt to fulfill my quest I am going to ignore the washing up from lunch/the washing machine that needs emptying and refilling/the carpet that needs vacuming and go and play hide and seek.
I am on my way to being a 'Practically Perfect Mummy!' and you never know one day I might get there.
(Oh and, in case you were wondering, we were watching Mary Poppins at the time he told me!)
So here I come; ready or not
