As parents we are all Super no matter how we do it
WHAT is your definition of a Super Mum?
Is it someone who stays home full-time to raise their children?
Is it someone who works to provide for their children?
The answer is simple.
No matter a mother's situation, they are doing the best they can.
They juggle many things, both personal and parenting, and manage to get through the day.
That is what makes them a Super Mum.
In this day and age I can't believe the prejudice mothers get when it comes to their careers.
The topic was raised recently when an entertainment reporter criticised Chrissie Swan for leaving her one-year-old baby while appearing on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
It caused a lot of backlash with so many coming out in defence of Chrissie, calling the male reporter's comments sexist.
And rightly so.
It is not like she took her children out into the wilds of Africa and left them to fend for themselves.
She left them with their father while she went to work.
The horror of it all.
She wasn't the only parent amongst the celebrity crew in South Africa either, so why pick on her?
There have been times I have wished I could be on a similar version of the show myself.
Mine would be called I'm A Parent Get Me Out of Here.
Parenting can be tough.
Sometimes it has been a blessing going to work, to find some sort of normality out of the chaos of home.
I have a career I love, a job I spend many hours working at, and it is something I am proud of.
That doesn't make me a bad mother.
But it is because of my job I know I am a better mother.
I am happy and content in myself and I know I am a good role model for the kids.
It doesn't end there.
I am lucky I have my Superman who does more than his fair share of the workload at home.
He too has a job he spends many hours working at, something he is proud of too.
It makes us both better parents. Super parents at that.
It also makes us appreciate the times we do get to spend with the kids… before they get to the age where they aren't keen to spend time with us.
