Supermum

March 3, 2020

 

 

You hear the name Supermum being thrown around
in many odd places in between conversations
as if she exists,
and maybe she does,
but not in the way that she’s able to do it all.

You will cry,
you will scream,
you will doubt yourself,
you will break,
you may occasionally break down,
you may break the rules,
you will rearrange the orders in the manual of the parenting handbook
if there ever was one,
you will follow routines
and then you will break them,
you will have days 
you just don’t want to play,
you will do takeouts and drive-thrus
and be done with all things DIY because you need this sleep much more,
you will swear by breastfeeding 
and then you will swear to be done with it 
at 3am in the morning,
you will feel guilty,
you will feel guilty many times
when they talk about gentle parenting
and find yourself losing your patience another night,
and you will cry again,
and you wonder if you can measure up with all the Supermums you hear about.

But somewhere in between breaking apart,
you allow light to shine through your broken parts
to help you try all of these again in a brighter place
because you also love hard,
you love so hard
and that is why 
you will have to be proud.

Because all of these
are exactly how
Supermum exists.
All of these
are exactly why
she’s
you.
