I think I've got the comparison thing down - I don't really identify with the "perfect mother" image, have never really wanted to be it - but then I catch myself looking at someone's feed and thinking, "She's always having such fun with her children. What's wrong with me? Why do I get a sinking feeling in my stomach at the idea of another trip to the park, another game of hide and seek, another meal to cook, another mess to tidy up? Why aren't I more fun, more grateful, more everything?"
And then I remember that MY feed, as honest I try to make it, is still only a snapshot of my day, and my endless ticker tape of thoughts💭 that runs and runs into the night features nowhere. So yeh. Here it is. It *might* look cool but while the main characters are most definitely my favourite two people in the whole world, sometimes I'm bored😶, sometimes I'm grumpy😠, I'm often very very tired 😴. True, sometimes I'm happy and content and enjoy every second. One thing is certain though - I'm not as witty in real life as I *might* seem on here. But at least I'm cool on the internet, right?...😬🙈😂😘 #instagramlife #instagramlies 📷@mummy_piggles
