I excitedly accepted the invitation to participate in the Story of Mum exhibition. I've happily read and viewed other mum's artwork, poems, stories and rants. I've laughed, smiled, emphasised and sympathised, but as the time has approached I’ve felt slightly panicky about the prospect of sharing my own thoughts!
I’ve found motherhood a privilege, a challenge, a battle and a joy. After being told “time with children goes too quickly” when I was finding every day with my newborn daughter precious, but very long and exhausting, I can finally appreciate that comment. I now have two daughters aged 6 and 9 and I’m not quite sure where the time has gone! I’m looking forward to the adventures ahead and bracing myself for the teenage years with two girls. I’m very grateful to be sharing the journey with a fab husband. Although I will ignore his recent comments of “I’ll be working away a lot” when discussing the inevitable time of when they reach their teenage years.
So my contribution to the exhibition is as follows:
