Am I The Only Mum Who

My other half often says that I worry too much about my children, that I check they are okay during the night too often and that I hate being apart from them and I am too overprotective. It got me thinking that I bet I am not the only mum who does some of these things.

my teen toddler and baby

  • Check's on their children during the night. I even still check on my twelve year old.
  • Place my hand on their chests to check they are still breathing during the night.
  • Worry about them non-stop in case something bad happens to them.
  • Get upset if someone is mean to them.
  • Spend far too long watching them sleep.
  • Feel guilty and miss them if I go somewhere without them
  • Then text whoever is looking after them non-stop to make sure they are okay.
  • Feel bad when I have to tell them off.
  • Be amazed every day that they are mine.
  • Phone in sick from work to watch school assemblies or if they just want a day with mummy.
  • Get more excited about their birthday's then my own.
  • Go overboard when shopping for birthdays and Christmas.
  • Dress them better than myself, always.
  • Take millions of photos of them every day.
  • Go shopping for myself and end up spending the money on my children.
  • Stay up all night worrying and checking on them when they are unwell.
  • Always check the tweens phone and social media to keep an eye on her.
  • Turn into a nervous wreck when she goes out with her friends alone.
  • Feel awful for hours if I have snapped at them.
  • Cry when they get hurt.
  • Cry when they do well in something.
  • Always wish I could do better.
  • Always kiss them goodnight before I go to sleep. 
  • Know that I will always love them no matter what.
