A couple of months ago I mentioned that I will be postponing the production of the MGAM Magazine until July. Well… it is now July and lets just say the magazine isn’t ready. In fact as the founder and editor of MGAM I have decided I will postpone it until 2016. I have now learned it is impossible to do any work with a little baby, when I was pregnant I was probably a bit too optimistic on the whole thing! I have discovered this especially with my little baby who doesn’t enjoy sleeping during the day! The theory of “sleep when the baby sleeps” is great, IF your baby actually sleeps so I am a tired reck and I have no idea how I managed to survive the past 3 months!
Yes readers, I have indeed been a mummy for 3 months now and like I said I have no idea how I have survived. For those who may not be aware (or are my new readers) I produced the MGAM quarterly magazine all by myself but with a demanding baby on my hands it has become near impossible to sit down and actually plan the magazine. It takes a lot of planning to get the magazine together especially when I am the only person working on it!
To be honest some weeks I am shocked I am able to write two blog posts and it is an achievement when I can write three. Motherhood is certainly a full time job (a very tiring 24 hour one) where you are forced to have little sleep but are still expected to function like a normal human being. You don’t get paid for doing it and the reward you get is a smile. Although this sounds small the feeling you get when they do smile and when you play and watch them learn is just incredible, no words can describe it.
Being a mum is a real juggling act and this little being needs you as they cannot fend for themselves so they need their mummy as their 24hr carer. However, I am determined to keep the blog going but the magazine will have to take a back seat since it requires a lot more planning, on some days I am lucky if I manage to eat 3 meals. Sorry to say readers I am just not one of those perfect mums who “has it all handled”. I am certainly not one of those mums in the media that loves to brag about how “perfect” everything is, but you know what… I am not ashamed to admit it because all mums out there will know the truth. Readers, thank you for your ongoing support and the MGAM magazine will be back but just later than planned. On that note enjoy the sunny weekend!
