As mums we often stress that we’re not perfect. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be successful mothers, and to do it all. Well what if I told you that to everyone who matters, you’re already perfect?
In partnership with Woolworths
I often question if I am doing the best job at raising my kids. Am I a good mum? Am I too controlling? Am I giving them the right advice? There have been many periods in my kids upbringing that I have struggled; the terrible two’s, starting school, and now even more so that the twins have turned 16 and are becoming really independent.
We are mums to our children, so shouldn’t it be their opinion that indicates whether we’re doing this ‘mum gig’ well? I mean we’re not mothering anyone else (and if you are, please stop, our other halves are very capable of standing on their own two feet – hehe!).
Life throws so many hurdles our way, and we all have those days (even weeks and months!) where we feel like we’re just keeping our heads above water. I think sometimes though, we’re the ones setting the bar too high for ourselves, because in reality, our kids are just fine. Our kids, for the most part, are happy.
Still not convinced? Then answer me these questions…
- Are your kids warm?
- Do they have full tummies?
- Are your children loved?
- Do they feel safe?
You see children don’t need the latest toys, 3 course meals, or expensive extra curricular activities. If they’ve got these then that’s fine, but without them you are still ticking all the right boxes.

WHITE CHOCOLATE & RASPBERRY MUFFINS – you can make these in advance (they only take 5 minutes to prep!) with the kids and freeze, then all the kids have to do Mother’s Day morning is pop them in the microwave and serve with some whipped cream. Yum yum.

EGG TOASTS WITH ROASTED TOMATOES & AVOCADO – now this is toast with a twist! The kids will love helping with this one, and if they’re too young to cook, they may be able to cut the heart shapes out for you. Roast tomatoes and avo make for a yummy addition to this toast.

LAYERED TROPICAL FRUIT BREAKFAST CUPS – a fabulous one for the young children, because once you’ve chopped up the fruit for them, they can easily assemble the fruit cups by layering the muesli with the yoghurt and fruit.

FRUIT TOAST WITH RICOTTA, FRUIT & SEEDS – a fancy toast option that is easy for the kids to do, and super delicious for us mummies to eat.

BERRY SMOOTHIE BOWL – delicious and very easy to make. Simply pop all the ingredients into a blender and voila!
TURMERIC TEA WITH APPLE AND MINT – a beautiful blend of Granny Smith apples, mint, black tea, honey and turmeric.

APPLE AND OAT MUFFINS – a great breakfast accompaniment to fruit, cream, and a hot coffee! Again, these babies can be made in advance, so that all the kids need to do is heat them up for a yummy Mother’s Day breakfast.
