So what is it really like to be a mother to three young children? If I could sum it up in three words they would be; Love, exhaustion and chaos. Today I have taken what I would consider a brave step and uploaded a video on YouTube of a day in my life or DITL if you’re up with all the acronyms that exist on the internet these days.
Whilst I am proud of my efforts and novice editing, the reality is that it is impossible to get the full story on film. I chose to purposely edit out some of the more stressful and unglamorous sections from my plethora of video footage, and I would like to firstly explain why and also go into the reason I choose to do so.
So behind the scenes this is what really happened; my son crapped in my daughters room, or rather thought it would be a good idea to go to the toilet by himself and not tell me, which resulted in an unwiped bottom which he then unfortunately sat on the floor, poo smearing everywhere. You think that’s gross, what’s really gross is that I was the one who had to clean it up.
So why then did I choose to not show all the mess and realities of life with three small children, well actually I did. The reality is that this is the day I got up to, and the messiness can be seen in my appearance which deteriorated as the video went on and my constant mentions of exhaustion.
I edited my video to show that life with children should be spent focusing on the good times, the pure bliss and enjoyment that children exude towards life. I love my children and am proud of the little humans that they are with individual personalities, wants, needs and desires.
The best revelation I have stumbled across as a parent is that your children are not an extension of you they are their own being with their own life to live, mistakes and all, and are entitled to experience all life has to give, not what you allow them or deem suitable.
I both love and hate being a mother, that’s just how it is. However I am extremely proud of my little family, and am learning to love my life mess and all, I am just choosing to focus on the positive because that is what life is all about.
I would absolutely love it if you would go and support my new channel and click here to view and support my video.
Take care of you, and your family, love,
