If there's one thing I've learnt while being a mum to young children is that you're at your most vulnerable, most tiring, most busy, and most emotional time in your life.
And one thing I love is that I have fantastic friends. Friends who can be honest, and friends who I can be honest with. As much as we all love our children to bits, we're able to share our innermost feelings and fears while sitting in each other's messed-up-by-children houses.
And cry. And laugh.
Over a cuppa.
We put on our happy faces, but here were know it's okay if we don't want to.
I love that.
Because it's real.
