I AM THE MOTHER WHO WANTED A BABY

I was tagged by Laura Summers over at Laura’s Lovely Blog to write a post on “being the mother who….”

I wasn’t 100% sure what I was going to write. You see I was once falsely accused of being a ‘bad mum’ and although this was not the case, it knocked me back and even put doubts in my mind about what kind of mother I was. Now I can confidently say that I have always been a brilliant mother in whatever circumstances I have found myself. 

I’ve been a single parent with a newborn… it was not always easy but it was worth it! My daughter is the best.

I found the thought of this post quite scary and difficult at first but I persevered and here it is.

An honest and true reflection of who I really am as a mother.
