Motherhood is TOUGH #QuoteLinky

Motherhood is one tough bugger!!!!  

Feel like I’m struggling with being a ‘Mummy’ at the moment. 

Not sure if it’s just hormones, the age of the kids, or am I being seriously unreasonable, but I’m struggling with motherhood and my stress levels are taking over. 

I of course put my children’s health and happiness first, before mine. 

They are my rocks and my best friends, but most importantly I am trying my hardest to be their teacher and their leader. I really try hard to do the right thing and show them the right ways to deal with situations and cope well under pressure but I don’t think I am coping well under pressure at all (especially when I’m hormonal) are there other mums out there who shout and scream and feel they can’t cope well when hormonal? 

I feel I am not doing anything right at the moment. I’m not coping well with 7 year old attitude 😞 deep down I know he isn’t really being naughty but I have standards that might be a little too demanding-‘can a 7 year old really do what he is told first time round with no strops’ NO. 

I’m constantly shouting, moaning and cross….is it me and why am I like this? Venting with friends is great and having a supportive hubby is amazing but I don’t want our days filled with a moody mum. Are there any GOOD techniques to stop me from being a horrid shouting mummy?! HELP PLEASE…tips and advice welcome 👍🏼
