I am mum to three boys, 5, 12 and 14, and I like the ‘Winging It’ vibe of Selfish Mother. Because I am. We are. I don’t know why anyone pretends otherwise. Anyway, there’s a definite mental health thread in my daft posts for them and so far I’ve thought about fantasies (some rather embarrassing), the school run and self esteem, mother’s day (without a mother), answering kids’ tricky questions, talking to your children about mental health – theirs and yours – and managing if you have mental health problems (which I was in no way able to do justice, so I just offered a few thoughts based on my own experience) and anxiety. I tend to be quite rude about competitive parents, tribal mummies, playground social networkers and carping FB/Insta-mums. Am I too awful?
