I'm a real mum because I have bags under my eyes, pimples on my face, stretchmarks on top of stretchmarks, a sore back, sore shoulders, a saggy belly, a messy house, washing on the line and more in the machine, countless useless baby amusement devices, hairy legs and no nice bras or undies wink.gif . But inspite of all this I'm happy biggrin.gif

A real mummy doesn't care her tummy's gone saggy,
and her eyes are all baggy.
Her shirts are all covered in milk,
puked up of course, so she'll not wear silk.
A real mummy can make a costume by eight,
and for school not be late,
and getting homework  rolleyes.gif all done,
while breastfeeding her young one.
A real mummy knows the chores will still be there,
but oh bubby, you'll grow up too soon.  It's not fair.

I'm a real Mum because
I haven't had a full night's sleep since my children were born
I can talk for ages about poo and find it hilarious
I sing along to the Wiggles in the car then realise I have no children with me
I get excited about a crane driving past and feel deflated when I realise my son's fallen asleep in the back seat
I keep putting on weight from eating the food my children have rejected
I never get to eat anything nice because I have a couple of human seagulls who will take the food out of my mouth
If my child vomits I'll pull them closer so the spew goes on me and not the carpet
I have been applauded by little hands for doing a poo in the toilet - and been offered help to wipe my bottom
Privacy and modesty are now completely foreign concepts
I've been consistently either pregnant or breastfeeding for the last 3.5 years
My default setting is either guilt or worry
When offered a day to go off and do whatever I want, my first thought is usually that I just want to spend time with my husband and children

For me, in general, I believe I am a real mum becasue - I dont care how I look, or how people perceive me, I am me, I am a Mum and I am proud of what my husband and I have bought into this world. Life just wouldnt be the same without them in it! I love my children, they are my first and foremost, they are my world. They are who make me the Mum I am for them.

I am a real "mum to be" because:

*  I love my baby more than anything in the world even though he/she has not yet entered the world;
*  I do the best I can for the baby's health and wellbeing;
*  When I think about the future, my plans first and foremost consider what is going to be best for the baby; and
*  I have traded feeling sexy for feeling comfortable, for the time being original.gif

I am a 'real' mum because I am a mum, and a mum to be again original.gif....I love my little guy more than anything, more than I ever thought possible and can't wait to see how much love there is for number two.  I know I'm in for countless nights of sleep deprivation, nappy changes,  and tears and tantrums (some of them mine!) and yet I'm gleefully looking forward to it all.

I'm a real mum because generally im tired, im hungry, i need a shower, i need to change cause im covered in vomit, ive forgotten what i was going to do, im trying to do 150 things at once....and im loving every minute of it because its all about my bubba! One look at him and everything else just stops and is no longer important, its all about him.

A real mum gives her children food before herself because money is tight that week and all that is left will not feed you all because payday is the next day. She will go to sleep hungry but happy because her children are full.

I'm a real mum because I share my ice cream now. original.gif

I "think" I'm a real mum, because more than half my life has been spent tending to children or babies.

Im a real mum to be cause I dont have perfect little breasts, I dont have a perfect little butt. I am a size 12, and I still cant find any sexy lingerie to make me feel good right now.
So here's to Cake Lingerie, pick me to be your next model. A little, but big boobed mummy to be!

I'm a real mum because I focus more on whether my daughter's hair is brushed, than whether mine resembles a birds nest. Because I let her lick the chocolate cake batter off the spoon rather than enjoying it all to myself. Because I dont remember the last time I had a shower by myself, without her climbing in with me. Because I love it when she falls asleep in my arms, even though I am in an uncomfortable position and have pins & needles! Because they're the moments I love best original.gif

I'm a real mum because that's what my daughter calls me...and will always call me....forever.

I think I'm a real Mum because after the 9 months of feeling my little boy growing inside and giving up things to make my body a home for him, I cherish every moment of having him in my arms. From the number 2's that no nappy can contain to the vomit that adorns each top I own.  My only hairstyle is a boring pony tail, so little fingers can not pull it.  My wardrobe is now full of comfortable clothes not sexy or stylish and my handbag is now a backpack full of baby's gear with just my purse, phone and keys, no room for perfume, mints or mirrors! But...I wouldn't have it any other way, his little smile makes sure that all my worries disappear and is very contaigous.  I'm not hot, sexy, skinny or stylish, but I'm a Mummy and that to me makes everything ok.

I am a real mum because i love my children to bits but still smile and let out a huge sigh of relief when they are finally in bed asleep!

#19 Havachat2

Rarely has privacy
Everyone depends upon
Always wearing snot/crumbs/dribble
Loves her kids unconditionally

Mess is the new black
Understands that 'now' means 'NOW'
Muddles through each day knowing that chocolate awaits when the kids are in bed!

I could add a heap more, but being a mum is not just about looking after kids, its watching your family unit grow and learn everyday.

I'm a real mama because every day I have my doubts about whether I am doing the absolute best I can for my children. But every day I try to do the best I can - loving them, looking after them.

I am a real mum as I have 2.5 kids and love my life with them in it and wouldn't have it any other way. grin.gif (Even while #3 is kicking the living hell out of my cervix while I type that!)

I'm a real Mum because I believe in common sense, and I know my kids aren't perfect!

I'm a real mum because after getting the school kids to school, entertaining the pre-schooler, getting the baby to sleep, making lunch, cleaning and chores not to mention the extra work on the days I work or study, I have no time to think up whitty responses that will allow me to win competitions!

Oh and I'm so sleep deprived that I read the topic title and thought that it was about some new fangled cake decorating idea laughing2.gif

LOVE, love, love.......
A real mummy just keeps swimming through the challenges, often with eyes half closed, smiles sooooo intensley they often shed tears while their heart glows brightly as they indulge in the joys of a child and are constantly overwhelmed by the love, sacrifices and endless support they share with their loving partner.

When we break down the word MOTHER , we have 'other' before 'her', or herself.

I believe that every woman is a 'REAL' mum simply because she has the courage and the ability to give life, to love unconditionally and to put others before herself, be it her own baby, someone else's, her husband, her brother and sister , it doesn't matter, but she is always there. A mother is born when her child is born. She never existed before. But her qualities and her strength, courage, vigour and commitment is always there in every woman.
That's what makes a real mum, and we all are.
