So I have had the question a couple of times before… ‘why Supermummy Secrets?’ ‘why do you feel you are a supermum’, ‘why call yourself that?’ ‘Do you believe you are better than other mums?’
I like that people ask the question to be honest. I like that people think ‘she must be a super over confident mum’. But the truth is, no I am not. I am like every mum out there, I question myself, I panic ,I do things wrong, I doubt myself and I am far from perfect. But also like the other mummies out there I always aim to be a good parent, I love my child like crazy, I put my child first and always will and I try to bring my child up the way I believe to be right.
Being a mum (or a dad) is definitely one of the most challenging things ever, it tests you emotionally, physically and in ways you could have never expected. Your main priority is to protect your child and therefore be their real life superhero!
I believe that all mum’s are supermums, just as all dad’s are superdads when they choose to devote their life to keeping another safe and to making them happy. Supermummy secrets is my personal story, my own personal advice, my own way of giving back to other people whether it be by sharing the latest deals or writing about my own experiences in a blog (my secrets). Whether you are a parent or not this page is for everyone. I may be a mum but I am also young, I do acting, I like fashion and makeup (even if some days I look like pants), I live with 1 and 1/2 men so I am always shopping for them. I am not JUST a mum but I am proud to say I am a mummy. I am still me, I do have other interests besides my son (although he is of course my number 1!) So this site will reflect that with the variety of topics, deals, photos and more.
We parents can be extremely tough on ourselves, I certainly was for a long time after having my son. I criticised everything I did, the fact that I couldn’t breast feed despite all efforts, the fact that I had ballooned after being pregnant and the fact that I sometimes didn’t know how to make him stop crying when he was a newborn. But the fact is, we need to remember how amazing we actually are, we need to focus on what we do right, not what we do wrong. We need to remember what our bodies went through, what emotionally we went through, the fact that our lives had changed forever and we just adapted somehow. We go through something so big, so terrifying, yet come out the other end stronger. WE ARE Superheros to our little ones, protecting them whatever way we can. Nothing can compare to what we do, no job in the world comes close to it. So yes maybe it is big headed to call myself a Supermum, but I am. My mum is, my grandma is and all the mummies I know are. I just choose to embrace it…. and well…. Supermummy Secrets was also in my eyes a rather catchy name!
