8 pictures that sum up motherhood for me

Before I became a mother three years ago, I imagined my future photograph album to be like those posed photoshoots they advertise in your Bounty pack.

Then I became a mother and started to aim more for the Insta-worthy perfectly colour-coordinated cheeky and cute images I saw racking up so many likes. However, my photo album didn’t quite end up looking that way.

And so here are 8 pictures from my actual family album that sum up the experience of motherhood for me…

That’s if they haven’t already ended up in the CCTV room and you’re being called in by the tannoy.

Encouraging children to help with tasks is supposed to keep them occupied so they aren’t elsewhere breaking your stuff. It also means tasks take forty times as long and eventually you go mad and give up altogether and do whatever it was after they are in bed.

One quick pee break for you can mean full devastation upon your return. Kids are like little mess ninjas.

Ah the old ‘OH MY CHRIST, THE CRICK HE’S GOING TO WAKE UP WITH’ and despite your best efforts to prop up the head while going 70 on the m25, it just keeps going back down – however, somehow his head remains attached with no complaints after waking.

‘I’ll never be one of those parents who relies on the iPad’ – quote pregnant you.

But at least, at the end of every day I have this to look forward to.
