    Yes being a mum is so so hard. The sleep deprivation is quite a shocker and it’s surprising how little sleep we can actually ‘get by’ on. Neither of my two slept more than 2-3 hours for the first 11 moths of their lives, and I had them within in 11 months of each other so I didn’t sleep for a good 2 years. It was tough. But we seem to have cracked it now, I still can’t go to the toilet, have a shower or do anything on my own but hey at least we’re no longer zombies. Anyway I hear ya, being mum is tough but you are doing fab. Thank you for sharing with us at #familyfun. Hope to see you again next week. Xx

  4. The hardest job but also the most rewarding, I hope to experience it someday πŸ™‚

  5. I’m sure you’re doing an amazing job!

  6. You’ve summed up being a Mom really well. It’s the most gratifying and satisfying job…and also the hardest thing I’ve ever done. lol You will get the knack of it, sounds like you already are, in fact! Enjoy this time, it goes so quickly! πŸ™‚

    Hardest and BEST job ever!

    I’ve been so blessed to have children who enjoy their sleep…even as babies and toddlers. Granted, they’re up late like I am, but I have to wake them up at ten!

  10. It’s the most complicated happy one moment, anxious the next etc.. job in the world. But aren’t we lucky we get to be called Mommy!!! πŸ™‚ Great post! #bloggerclubUK

  11. Amber Myers says:

  12. Anna nuttall says:

    Totally agreed with this post. It good for you say it and nice to know their our other people who feel the same as you.

  13. It’s tough. But he’ll soon reach an age where he can play with toys etc and amuse himself a bit. Have you tried a sling for when he wants to nap on you? At least then you could walk around a bit…! #KCACOLS

  14. It definitely is one of the hardest jobs ever. You know it’ll be hard before they arrive but I don’t think you realise exactly HOW hard it is until baby arrives and turns your world upside down :o)
    I’m so glad your little prince is sleeping now x #BloggerClubUK

  16. Lindsey says:

    The struggles are definitely worth it!

  17. I am not a parent but I can definitely understand the effort to be good parent

  18. Heather says:

    Oh yes, being a mama is definitely hard! We have three little ones, and I gave up on sleep about 7 years ago πŸ™‚ It does get better though, you are doing a wonderful job!

  19. Your mum’s comments were hilarious. Totally been there.

  20. Ha this AM I had the most happiest of morning. For the first in FOREVER my youngest slept in till 8 am and SO did I. I even twitted I felt like I had a sleep hangover.. I think she was feeling bad for me since I had been staying up to wait for her oldest brother who started to work and is closing shift, and her sister who is sick so I have been a walking sleeping zombie and working with my other son.. MAN if we got a paycheck for what we do at home OHHH we would break banks lol.. It’s the hardest but most rewarding work EVER.

  21. Rita says:

    I can understand all things you mentioned! Agreed!!! It is a hard job but it’s totally worth it! πŸ™‚

  22. I feel the same way. I have been a stay at home mum for the last five years and it beats any job I could ever have. Some women need to work, and that’s their decision entirely, but I am so fulfilled with my life as a Mummy, it’s more than I could ever have hoped for after everything we went through to get these babies of ours. #KCACOLS

  23. Jessica says:

    Awwww, the sleep deprivation is the worst part!

  24. Louise says:

    It’s the most rewarding job! The sleepless nights are worth it! #KCACOLS

  25. It is without doubt the hardest thing I have ever done. Having two children has damn near done me in – it’s fabulous and I love them dearly, but my god, some days…. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday.

    Having kids sounds so challenging, I can’t imagine the lack of sleep! But I’m glad to hear it’s a dream come true

  27. Ashley Voicu says:

    So true. Its hard time to find time for your self. When they are asleep, its like the timer is ticking and you just want to finish before they wake up.

  28. Indrani says:

    In spite of all hardships being a mom is indeed fulfilling job!
    I felt as if I was reading my own story. πŸ™‚

  40. It is the hardest job bar none! It is constantly evolving though so through all the bad bits there will be lots of good bits. I can’t say it ever gets easier I don’t think. It simply changes.
