I Gave Birth To Twins… and Here’s The First 5 Months

Happy Mothers Day! The last 5 months have been a complete upheaval of life as we knew it. I’ve had deep dark moments I’d never want to revisit, inner strength revealed I never knew I had, the chance to see the world with a little bit more love and the long, tedious, drawn out nights of cradling and rocking little ones who manage to fall asleep just as the sun begins to rise. With all that, I wouldn’t change it for the world and I’m here to remind myself, and you, that you’re awesome and you’re doing great.

If I could write a letter to my pre-mum self it would go something like this…

Hi Mum to be, you have no idea what you’re in for. Remember to be a little kinder to yourself, you just grew two humans. It’s beyond a miracle, so every time you question your abilities just remember that. Babies don’t do as their told, or as you wish, but you’re still in charge. You’re responsible for two little cubs now mama bear, just remember that. And when you want to go back to work and you think you should be doing a million other things, and someone steps in to support you, just remember that it takes a village. You will be a better you to you for taking the time for you, and you’ll be a better mum to the boys for taking time for you. Just remember that.
