Courtesy of social media and that 'mum guilt' that is instilled in all of us from the moment our children are born (gotta love it), I doubt that there are many mums out there who don’t feel the pressure to be the perfect parent.

The second your child is born, you realise how important they are to you – and you feel that weight of responsibility on your shoulders – the pressure is there.

When you have a child with disabilities, the 'mum guilt' and pressure is tenfold. All of a sudden from nowhere you adopt the name “super mum”, when you don’t particularly feel it.

I am not super mum.

Trust me, I’m not even close. For a start I swear too much. But I also lose my patience. I rely on YouTube and an iPad. I rely on my Mum and nursery stopping me from being a stuck-at-home mum. I rely on my friends allowing me to rant and get things off of my chest. My children don’t eat their five fruit and veg every day. They eat way too many biscuits. And sometimes I struggle to like myself.

I am not super mum.

True, we do it to ourselves, but you can’t open Facebook these days without feeling like there is a dash of parent shaming on your newsfeed – whether it’s intentional or not. Because opinion is always there.

Breast is best. Bottle is best. Dummies cause speech delay. Baby wear, but don’t use *that* carrier. Co-sleep its natural. Don’t co-sleep it causes SIDS.

Aren’t we all supposed to be part of the “motherhood”? Does everyone really care about how other people parent?

Am I just over sensitive sometimes? Maybe.

Do I overthink? All the time.

Is the grass sometimes greener because it’s fertilised with Facebook bull****? Yes.

I’m never going to not overthink. It’s in my make-up. I will always worry I’m not doing a good enough job. I will always worry what people think of me.

I am not super mum.

But I try my best. And I love my kids.

I myself am entirely made of flaws. Stitched together with good intentions (Augusten Burroughs).
