For all the Mums and Dads thinking they aren’t good enough. For all the single parents who are exhausted and feeling alone. And for all the partners arguing over sleep and discipline. Here’s a little thought. It’s not always perfect days with perfect family photos. It’s not every night of a quiet book before a 7pm bedtime. And It’s not perfect routines with on-time dinners. It’s not an organized or clean playroom. It’s not Mum and Dad getting to relax together at night. But It’s little hands leaving dirty marks. It’s cries of not getting their own way. It’s sibling cat fights under the kitchen table. And It’s being squashed in bed because that’s the only way they would fall to sleep. It’s rushing out the door late… again.

It’s wet cuddles after they ‘watered the garden’. It’s playing the game of their choice 11 times because they didn’t win the first 10. And It’s seeing their smiles, hearing their laughter, then 5 minutes later wiping their tears. It’s watching them grow and teaching them the wrongs and rights of life. It’s hearing too many ‘nos’. But It’s curious hands touching everything in the supermarket isles. It’s knowing someone relies and depends on you. It’s clingy days with snotty noses. Then It’s sneaking a quick snack in the pantry. Being a parent doesn’t always go to plan like you thought it would the first time you got the news. It’s not always perfect.

Sometimes it’s hard. Really hard. And you will question yourself as a Mother, a Father, a carer. But that’s ok. It’s also amazing and fulfilling and heart warming. It’s a love like you will ever feel and the best thing that you have ever done. You’re not alone, you’re never alone. And when you’re kids grow and learn their own independence, you will wish upon the days of sooky tiredness and exhaustion. When you got to kiss and cuddle them 20 times a day. When in their eyes there was only you.
