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.

Episode 052 – Not The Best Mum I Can Be

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 052 – Not The Best Mum I Can Be

Tonight I talk about how mums are always told that as long as you’re doing your best, that’s enough.  But how sometimes I don’t do my best, because sometimes I need to just be selfish.  Sometimes I just need time for myself.

Episode 040 – Am I Joyce?

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 040 – Am I Joyce?

Tonight I talk about Joyce Summers, the TV mum I always swore I would never grow up to be… but how I have recently realised I’m actually mirroring a lot of her behaviour!  Ironic really, considering I have a daughter named Buffy.

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.
