As am Mum, I come with all different types of faces, sometimes (if you’re not lucky) you’ll get to see all of them in one day.
There’s my serious face
There’s my ‘whatever’ face
There’s my ‘thinking and stressing’ face
There’s my ‘I’m exhausted’ face
And then, Elliott’s favourite of them all…..
My ‘Crazy Mummy’ face!
The thing that I tend to notice in this whole parenting experience is that we can get so uptight and serious most of the time and it really brushes off on our kids. I find when I really let go of all my inhibitions and just act really silly and crazy with Elliott, he just loves it. We have fun and I feel so much better for it, it’s like a huge stress release for me.
So when you are feeling a bit serious, stressed, exhausted or you’re like ‘whatever’, put your ‘crazy Mummy’ hat on. Pull some faces, do a strange dance and make weird noises…crazy Mummies are fun!
Will you admit to being a crazy Mummy sometimes?
