Things you do as a mum

Hey readers,

Some people think that us parents do nothing but just sit and drink tea all day. This may be true of some things, however some things I need praise for the things I can achieve as a parent. Here is the type of things I am successful to achieve as a parent.

Cleaning up my darling child’s snot, here you go, darling, have my lovely warm clean jumper sleeve to remove that string of snot. I don’t care if I look a tramp, I just can’t stomach it anymore having to see you try to lick it away.  *This is the kind of thing that normally happens when we are in public and I cannot access any bog roll*

I am suitably relaxed on the sofa watching This Morning and then the sheer terror washes over me as I hear the loud shout, “mummy, I’ve done a poo,” argh.  That means I have to rush to the bathroom to do the loving chore of wiping the feces of my son’s bottom. I just pray it is not runny as it goes absolutely everywhere!

Some skills you never think you will acquire, until suddenly you become a parent and you have to think right outside the box (which to be honest as an autistic person myself is f**king hard and uses all my resources I can tell ya). It is amazing the stories I can come up with or using techniques just to keep the child quiet for five minutes when we are out. I never thought I could be so creative waiting in a busy dentist room with a leaflet to entertain a child.

You know what I never heard my own voice as much as becoming a parent, I take more notice than my child. Maybe it would be easier to invent a tiny person in my head who appreciates what I say, as no other sod does,  haha!

I never knew there was such a thing as speed cleaning and boy have I got that down to a T. I have never dashed around the home to quickly make it less of a s**t tip in two minutes when I am greeted with unexpected visits.

One thing you soon learn early on in the game of parenting is that bribery wins the day, saves societies and makes family units strong.

It seems my children are allergic to finding anything that is requested of them, I seem to have developed a skill where I can find anything, particularly when it is so clearly visible to the naked eye. This skill takes little effort and nine times out of 10 can be sorted within 30 seconds, I know what your thinking totes amazeballs, right?!

Once I  became a parent it seems I have another person to deal with and that is my little friend guilt, that is always committed to being there for me 100%.

Once I was not a fan of sick, but somehow miracles do happen and I am not afraid of sick anymore. If my child spontaneously wants to be sick on me, not that I would have chosen it but I would get on with it and deal with it.

Isn’t motherhood amazing, people don’t realise the commitment, but parents you mostly on average rock. *bar the odd dodgy parent*.

Brighter

 

The day is brighten when it started of so rough. I didn’t think we would get here when my mind was set to default. I suppose things change and you never really know what is going to happen around the corner.

I don’t know where I am going but I feel ready to cease the day. Maybe the change in weather is the turning point where I can feel more ready to face the challenges of life.

I went out for a walk in the gorgeous golden sun and watched the water pitter patter down the stream. Nothing quite like being out in the open to take stock and just enjoy the simple moment of what is happening right here, right now.

I feel so much better for escaping my surroundings even if it is just for twenty minutes walking down the road and back, anything to distract me is always good in my book.

When I am walking down the road I take stock of the shadows dancing down below, whilst the sun rises above and shines all day long.

When once the area is so grim and gloomy, a little bit of sun can magically change the whole environment. It glisters the area with warmth and makes the ambience happy.

Everywhere is radiant and doesn’t matter about your background. We have all come for the same purpose and that is to enjoy this time and this moment in the sun.

Kids are laughing, elderly are sleeping in their chair whilst the parents sit back and drink to celebrate the outdoors.

There is no need to rush because this moment is so lovely, that no one wants it to end. It makes life more bearable with a bit of fresh air. It is the simple things that can change a mindset. You don’t need a lot to reap the rewards of defiance. It is really is the small things like vitamin D and air to help you along and glide you through the ride of life.

FTMOB – December

Hey readers,

My youngest is obsessed with pumpkins and every time he sees something that is orange and round it is a “pumpkin”, especially when he sees the lights on top of the zebra crossing.

My eldest has been to our local cathedral in our city for a trip with the school. So many questions about Jesus and bombing. He asked his daddy, “why did Jesus get bombed?!”

My youngest always comments about his brother by stated, “he is my big brother”. Super cute.

My youngest sees bees and calls them, “bzzzzzz, bzzzzzz”.

Anything that my ds1 sees that needs mending or painting or whatever he says, “daddy can fix that, he can mend anything, he has strong muscles, super big muscles”.

Ftmob – October 

Hey readers,

Hubby shared a chat he had with my eldest early, “I wish mummy didn’t have autism. Can’t Dr’s give her medication to make it go away”. How to feel shit in fice seconds. It breaks my heart that I am now getting noticed by my son with being different, I suppose this is the start of things to come.

My eldest asking,” why do so many people get cremated it’s silly!”. 

My DS1 saying, “I wish we could live in Wales forever and never come back”. Yep me too son I wish I could totally run away from it all at times :|.

I attempted to make a joke to my DS1 saying I would leave him in the car all by himself. His response was that it is ilegal to leave children alone in the car and the police will put you in jail mummy.

As we were driving past the graveyard the other day way DS2 comments, “boo”. this is becuase he thinks the tear ghosts there, 😂
