I created a series similar to this a few years ago, however I’m wanting to reshare it plus share more tips, as I think it was valuable and can help so many mums that are struggling. This new series is a guide to help mum’s thrive at home.
I was a stay at home mum for 7 years, from when I was 12 weeks pregnant until my youngest started prep, now I am a work at home mum, being a full time blogger. I struggled to fall pregnant and when we finally did I took every precaution to ensure I looked after myself and my babies so I stopped working very early on. Also being that my first pregnancy was twins I was exhausted from the very beginning.
I wasn’t always as organised as I am today, I’ve had my share of struggles and melt downs, as all mothers tend to do, but going through that helped me to adapt routines to keep the house under control.
After having my twins I felt so tired, washing was piling up, clutter was crowding our dining table and I was just emotionally drained. I put on a happy face at times while deep down it was a struggle. I didn’t want to be like this, I had a different vision of motherhood. By changing the mindset and remembering what I wanted in being a parent, I managed to pick myself up and create some routines and schedules that worked for me at that crazy time of my life with twin babies. 2 year later we then welcomed our youngest daughter, boy having one baby after having two at once was a breeze!

About the Helping Mum’s Thrive at Home series
Through this series I will share posts to guide you through your struggles, find your sanity and to help you thrive at home.
Being a mum at home with young children you can begin to feel:
- ground-hog day
- a financial strain
- but it can be very rewarding
I will share with you how I managed to get myself out of my slump, created routines and find my happier self. I will share a post each Thursday, with tips such as:
- changing your mindset
- creating routines
- finding balance
- stopping comparison
- and many tips on managing the home
Being a stay at home mum was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. It is supposed to be a happy time for you to enjoy your children while they are young, as they grow up far to quickly (don’t I know that now).
