A day in the life – Like Any Other Mum
My day starts like any other Mum, I get up at the alarm and set about getting the kids ready for school.
But I’m not any other Mum and first my Little Man has to pull my stiff legs out of the bed.
Like any other Mum it’s time to get the girls off on the school run.
But I’m not like any other Mum school runs are in the past and Daddy takes them instead.
Like any other Mum it’s then time to do the housework.
But I’m not like any other Mum, I can a do a little but even the vacuum is too difficult for me to use.
Like any other Mum I can then either chill out and do my own thing or go shopping, meet up with friends, even go to work.
But I’m not like any other Mum. I can’t go out alone, and most days I don’t go out at all.
Like any other Mum it’s soon time to get the dinner on.
But I’m not like any other Mum, I can’t stand for long and I need help to cook.
Like any other Mum I can then bath or shower my kids and take them to bed.
But I’m not like any other Mum and I can’t keep going up and down the stairs.
I’m not like any other Mum. I am a disabled Mum. It happened over night and now I can’t walk more than a few steps. My pain is constant and fatigue consuming. My body doesn’t work anymore, not matter how much I want it to.
Like any other Mum I can cuddle my kids, kiss them and tell them I love them. I can plan from my chair some wonderful treats for them. I can talk to them and help them with their worries. I can educated them, watch television with them, tell them stories and play games. (So long as I don’t have to sit on the floor. ) I can take them out and on holiday with Daddy’s help. I can have fun with them.
Like any other Mum….
I love being a Mum.
