Episode 050 – Natural Mother

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 050 – Natural Mother

Tonight I talk about how I’m not someone who’s natural at parenting and I’m not someone who has always felt at home around children.  I discuss the impact it has on me to be raising children when it doesn’t always feel like something I’m good at.

Episode 049 – Instagram Vs Reality

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 049 – Instagram Vs Reality

In this episode I talk about how we put images on social media that, whilst real photos, are not necessarily genuine representations of our lives as parents.  I compare and contrast images I have posted with how it looks to the outside world, with my knowledge of what was really going on.

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.

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.
