Being a mother is great whether its your first or fifth time. The experience is always new and fascinating, well almost. The journey would be so much easier if someone acknowledged it.

Being a referee was not what you bargained for as a career but its inevitable because in this case its your kids doing the fighting. Then you remember that you have left a task halfway and you would have been through if it were not for that phone call from school reminding you of a meeting . You’ve just saved yourself another cooking session in the nick of time. What’s worse is that its just the start.
A mother’ job is never done that cliche is unfortunately very true . This calls for you to regain your life again. It is good to be there for other people as long as you are not neglecting yourself.

People have a lot to say about parenting but the choice on how to go about it is yours completely.
