Episode 068 – When I’m 83

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 068 – When I’m 83

In the latest episode I apologise for the break between podcasts due to my children being unwell.  I then talk about when my daughter asked where I’ll be when she turns 83, and how it brought about a realisation of my own mortality.  I discuss trying to explain death to my children when I struggle with the concept myself.

Episode 067 – Apologies To My Second Born

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 067 – Apologies To My Second Born

Today I make apologies to my second born daughter.  My new baby who isn’t my only priority like my first born was, is left to cry whilst I look after my other children, and will never experience the intensely close bond of living alone with just me.

Episode 066 – Cuddle Your Children

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 066 – Cuddle Your Children

In this episode I talk about how important it is to cuddle your children, and how even when others are telling you to put your baby down when she cries, hold her.  I talk about how just because your baby is clean and not in pain, their emotional and psychological needs still need meeting.

Episode 062 – Hands Up, Who’s Struggling?

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 062 – Hands Up, Who’s Struggling?

In tonight’s episode I talk about how important it is that we talk about it when we’re finding it hard.  How sharing your fears and vulnerabilities will ensure we don’t feel alone and can welcome the help we need from others around us, and how we weren’t supposed to go through the stress and worry of child rearing alone.

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 037 – Keep You Near

I talk about how as a little girl I would always want to sneak into my mum’s bed, and how my daughter is now mirroring that behaviour.  I question whether it’s best to let her in, or to try and establish a more stable sleep routine.
