I want to be that mother who can stand up and say I am a strong confident mother and I know what is best for my children. We breastfeed and co sleep, We listen, We include, We eat chocolate and snot smoothies, we trampoline and grow frogs, we sling, we carry and we try and understand and work with our children without resorting to punishments, threats or coercion.

Response to the 'mom on iPhone meme'

Acht fuck off interfering 'see it all'. 

Did you see me wake up at silly o'clock to feed my baby? Did you see me earlier lying on the ground looking at slugs? Did you see me up in the middle of the night with a sick child? Did you see me climbing a tree with one on my back and one barely out of nappies? Did you see me navigate my through the supermarket without a single meltdown? Did you see me barely sit down all day? Did you see me feed three different sets of tastes? Did you see me watch them twirl on a pole thirty times over? Did you see me watching them dance and sing to the same song 100times over? Did you see me empty and fill the dishwasher and washing machine innumerable times? Did you see me holding them when they fell? Did you see me wipe their snot away with only my fingers because there were no tissues? Did you see me hold two hands whilst they both climbed the same wall?

Did you see me tend to their needs 24hours a day, often forgoing my own? Did you see me??????

No. You saw me in that wonderful moment when they were doing their thing and having a good time and I was having a rest. 

So fuck of you 'sanctimonious see nothing, know NOTHING, probably couldn't manage one day alone with one kid or two kids or three kids or even ten kids' little twat.
