High Heels and Lipstick

I’m so pleased to be able to share another excerpt from Musings on Mothering. Many thanks to Rachel O’Leary and Rosie Evans for giving me permission to share their contributions over at Story of Mum.

I’ve always thought Rachel’s piece ‘High Heels and Lipstick’ powerful and thought-provoking. Do women compete a lot? Do we make too many assumptions about how we’re coping with the challenges of motherhood compared with other mothers?

If you’re not aware of Rachel’s piece already, do take a moment to read it… the picture she conjures of a mother ‘drowning in isolation’ is so, so vivid.

Feel free to share away. Thank you.

My story on 'The Awakened Parent'

I was delighted to be able to write this post for Clare Kirkpatrick over on ‘The Awakened Parent’, which is a great site. It’s full of inspiring mothers’ stories and interesting posts about parenting instinctively.

I love the photo that I added too; it captures a very special, yet every day mothering moment. And it’s all these special moments that make mothering so wonderful
