INVINCIBLE-ly Organised Mama. ➖
What a load of rubbish. What I have are big ideas, coupled with good intentions, but not enough hours in the day to execute smoothly.
I post great photos. But this is typically to kill time whilst breastfeeding two babes, in my pjs + a top knot because they haven't let me put them down long enough to so much as brush my teeth before 11am.
I get so many emails and messages from mama's, some dads, fellow business owners and women in general wanting to know how I 'do it all'. Please for the love of god do not look at my social media and assume I have 'everything together'. Ha ha ha ha
I don't have it all together. Sometimes I do little bits of everything and then fall on my face when game day arrives. For example.
Today I got a letter from Eva's school principal because I haven't paid the terms school fees. This was apparently the second letter, although I don't recall reading the first. I probably opened it, looked at it, thought about reading it and then put it in the oven with my car keys when I heard a baby cry.
This on the same day I missed E receiving an award at school because I'd looked at; but forgotten to read the past two newsletters. I cried the whole way out of the school car park she told me she'd looked around the room for me whilst receiving it, but I wasn't there. #parentfail
We moved house suddenly this week and today I mixed up the Internet install appointment times. I thought it was 3pm. It was 1pm. The guy wasn't impressed.
Then I managed to get home to meet my fabulous Panel Coordinator for INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY, Georgie King from @the_womens_collective by 5.50pm. She'd been waiting on my driveway since 5.30, the time I'd said I'd meet her after pushing our catch up from 5pm.
On Monday I accidentally flashed the pizza man my boob whilst trying to unpack/breastfeed/give E instructions and yesterday I whinged at Casper for breaking one of my favourite glass Christmas baubles. I then knocked the box off the living room ledge and smashed the lot.
Some days I hold the world together and other days like today, I end up getting called into the principals office. #mumjoke 😂
