Shout out to the mums who are currently starting their mornings feeling like superwoman, only to be borderline psychotic by 10am in a smelly dressing gown. It’s called taking the good with the bad 🦥 . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #mother #motheranddaughter #mama #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodunited #mum #mummy #babygirl #stayhome

Just a few reasons to smile today: 1. You can work / parent / rock around the joint with 0 need for a bra (or any underwear) 2. C O F F E E 3. You’ve made it to another week, despite at various points probably feeling like you freakin’ couldn’t 4. You’re safe 5. Someone, somewhere is missing your face 6. This.is.all.temporary 7. Chocolate exists 8. Dressing gowns continue to be the fashionable and favourite style choice 9. You are healthy 10. Your mini human thinks you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to them (which is true because you are the creator of their universe and toes) . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #mum #mummy #parenting #stayhome #momlife #momsofinstagram #baby #babygirl #mother #mummylife #ukmum

Positives: We’ve walked more. We’ve talked more. We’ve laughed more, and cried more. We’ve had cold cups of coffee and family time more. We’ve read more, we’ve snugged more, we’ve worn our pyjamas more. We’ve broken routine more, had breakfast for tea more, and honest and truthfully understood to be grateful more. Thanks for being my stay home sidekick 🌓 , you’re crazy but by god you’re cute. . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #mommy #mum #mother #mummy #babygirl #parenting #baby #motherhoodjourney #stayhome #motherhoodunplugged #mama

Really wish I could muster up some motivational post for you all but the fact of the matter is that we’re just here driving each other mad (with love and tantrums) and taking each day as it comes. This week I cried because I couldn’t get the pram up a hill properly and Luna screams every morning on our walk because she can’t get in the pond with the ducks, so you know, some days we’re thriving, other days we’re just about surviving. Please don’t compare yourself to anything on here, it’s just a glimpse of the whole freakin’ package. I’m actually sat on the toilet as I’m writing this (still in my avocado pyjamas), and I was going to shower but I just can’t be bothered. Today may be good, it may be boring, it may be the same as every other day, but I’m just living for the fact that at some point we’ll totally be able to have hot cups of tea with our loved ones again and this will all seem a distant memory. Just keep going. Legit no poetic words, no fancy spiel, because to be honest you don’t need me preaching all of that, you should know you’re fantastic for the simple fact you raise your children. Any way I’m off to make coffee whilst la baby probably naps for 30 seconds today. Anyone else on their third cup or is it just me? Help. ☕️ . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #stayhome #babygirl #mom #momsofinstagram #mummy #mama #babygirl #parents #parentlife #ukmum

Today I was driving and I had one of those ‘can I bottle up this up and keep it please moments’. It wasn’t even anything special, music was playing and I stared into my mirror watching Luna sleep. I just felt content. Like, that ‘okay I lay awake worrying at midnight about the universe, I’m absolutely bonkers, BUT I have my own human’ kind of content. I’ve questioned a lot about myself over the past few weeks and I suppose it’s kind of sucked, but today in that very moment I felt whole. I felt strong. The thing is, I may wake up every day and wing the shiz out of this parenting thing, but I also plough my heart and soul into that tiny being in front of you. I made her and I keep her safe. Basically what I’m trying to say is that whatever life throws at you know that YOU, yes YOU are doing good things. Sometimes they may seem small, and other times they’ll feel tremendous. Ride the wave and don’t let anyone or anything tell you different. Never. Nope.

I think lockdown for many (or maybe just me, who knows but I’m going there) has meant a lot of soul searching. It’s easy to bury trauma or feelings when you’re on the go or surrounded by positive people - and it’s taken this for me to realise that. So no fancy frills here from me today just a message to say sometimes life will test the sh*t out of you and it will suck, people will suck, you will feel like you suck. In those moments of self doubt take a moment to look back on how far you’ve come, breathe, and remember who you are. It may take a while but you’ll get there, you didn’t come this far to only come this far xo . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #baby #babygirl #family #parenting #parenthood #mum #mummy #mummylife #mama

The face you pull in lockdown when: . - Someone bangs on about how your house should be clean ALL the time (who clearly doesn’t have baby womb gremlins) - You baked treats for the week and they’ve last a day - Someone talks about lie ins - You get invited on another ’quiz night’ - You’ve run out of clean pyjamas - Karen up the road is running laps at 9am and you haven’t even had an hours sleep yet - Your partner suggests wearing underwear - It’s hair wash day - Your child has learnt to ‘tantrum’ - When you realise it’s only 11.30am and you need a bloody tequila -Hot coffee is a long and sad distant memory - It takes the whole of 2020 to get into the supermarket - You realise lockdown has cranked up the momma anxiety - You seem to have more washing to do than when you actually made an effort - You legit can’t remember what day it is - The thought of going for a walk for the 2772738338 day in a row - There’s nowhere to secretly eat an adult snack - Your partner suggests watching a film after 8pm - You’ve ran out of bread (because it’s all we ever live off) - The forecast is rain for the next week, god have mercy on our souls - You suddenly realise you’ve smashed five weeks of chaotic parenting at home and you’re still going ✌🏻☕️ . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #stayhome #momsofinstagram #momlife #mummy #mother #mama #mom #parenting #mumlife #mamabear #baby #babiesofinstagram

Luna, AKA my moon, AKA the moon to my stars. When my mum passed I’d always said my first child would have a name that celebrated her. There was absolutely no questioning it, that was that. I remember deciding it for sure the evening of my 16 week scan. We were driving home so full of love and excitement and the sky was honestly the pinkest I had ever seen it, I knew then we were having a girl (as cringe as it sounds) and I even said it to Tom (who obviously rolled his eyes and thought I was crazy - you know, more than usual), but then we both saw this great big, beautiful moon. I know people don’t believe in all this spiritual malarkey but for me it just clicked, and whether coincidence or fate that moment will stay with me forever. The moon to my stars. Any way, the point of this was to find out all of the lovely stories behind your chosen children’s names? In a time when it’s easy to feel so lost, lets stop for a moment and fill the feed with love. 🌒 . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherdaughter #luna #moon #moonchild #parent #ukmum #mummy #mama #mother

Things I’ve learnt this quarantine: 1. My child has my personality. It is both a blessing and karma. 2. Breakfast for dinner is fantastic. In fact toast, toast is really really good. 3. It’s fun to set cool ‘look what I can do after staying at home’ goals and then totally not even do them. 4. I’ve spent my life savings at the supermarkets. 5. The Carole Baskin tiktok song is a curse that will haunt my lips forever. 6. Family really are everything. 7. Disney+ is a god send. 8. I’m immune to caffeine. 9. Community is key. 10. Gratitude. 11. Friends are really really really great, pick up the phone and call them. 12. No matter how much I scream ‘ I AM THE PARENT ‘ - my child is boss. 13. Staying at home still doesn’t make it tidy and organised, am I missing something here? 14. Health truly is a blessing. 15. We are bloody good parents, whatever life throws at us. . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #family #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughinstagram #mum #mummy #toddlerlife #toddlersofinstagram #family #parenting #mama #stayhome

Every child’s face when their parent is questioning whether they’re doing a good job and they’re sat there thinking... hun I’m turning out amazing? When this is all over your little ones probably won’t remember all of the homework they missed, the greens they didn’t eat, how many times you wore the same sweatpants, which games were played, what day of the week you said ‘WTF’ enough to be in the book of records, and the absence of family. They’ll just know you kept them safe 🌈 . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #family #stayhome #mother #mummy #parenting #parents #mum #mummy #mama #babygirl #momsofinstagram

Mums everywhere 🌸: Okay I’m absolutely exhausted today so I’m just going to take it easy and start the breakfast, change the sheets, finish stacking the dishwasher, make everyone lunch, snacks, then probably more snacks this afternoon, pop to the shops, tidy up the toys, sing songs, drink a few coffees in-between and then check in on everyone ten times at bedtime before getting up at 3am. That’s it. Sorry guys. Mumma needs some rest. . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #mummy #mama #mum #babygirl #parenting #parenthood #ukmum #mummylife #mother #mum

It’s funny, I may not be able to see my friends, but I genuinely feel closer to the women in my life more than ever. Our relationships and coffee dates are now confined entirely to facetime calls, random whatsapp memes, and moaning about our struggles via voicenotes, but honestly absence has completely made the heart grow fonder. Because friendship isn’t just about a quick hug and a familiar face. It's 2am ‘you got this’ texts when you’re in the midst of your 100th sleepless night. It's the mid-week check-ins to see how you’re hanging on in there. Because they know the ‘yeah everything is fine’ isn’t always exactly true. It's the celebration of a quick hot shower or toilet break alone when you’re struggling for freedom with your child at home. It’s the ability to vent to people wholeheartedly without judgement, and know they’re totally going to join in with your every moan. It’s agreeing with you that your child is incredible, and then laughing at you when they’re suddenly not. AND it’s the daily reminder that we’re all in this together and we’re doing a f*cking good job. So here’s to the sisterhood that’s getting me through. Thank you for making me one of the lucky ones. I can’t wait to squeeze you tight! . . . #lunajoy #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughinstagram #friendship #girlpower #ukmum #ukmums #mummy #mummylife #mummyblogger #mom

I drew a picture on Monday, the first time I’ve drawn in what feels like forever 🤍 I drew @hannahlouisevans 🤍 Now, if you don’t follow her, let me tell you... you should. Everyone should. But ESPECIALLY if you’re a mama. Why? Because she is one of the most genuine, truthful, honest, real, kind, generous, wonderful, inspiring, charismatic, gorgeous people in the world 🤍 She cheers for us, girls. She’s basically our biggest fan. She makes us feel like we’re doing phenomenally, even on the days that we feel like we can’t even make a cup of coffee right. She’s honest when she’s struggling. She’s truthful when it’s hard. She knows it’s okay to have bad days. And even through all this, she’s the most positive, strong, empowering mama out there. So I drew her a picture of her and her gorgeous, delicious little bubs... to say thank you. For being a mama tribe warrior goddess 🤍 @hannahlouisevans YOU ARE INCREDIBLE! Thank you for everything, my girl 🤍 #hannahlouiseevans #lunajoy #moonsmeals #mamaaccount #cheerleader #mega #illustration #illustratorsoninstagram #doodle #cartoon #harryandthebear #weareharryandthebear #art #artist #cute #caricature #mama #mommy #mummy #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #cute #bekind #thankyoulord
