The wonderful world of Nurturing Career Mama.

Another fanastic woman and blog I would like to introduce you to is I love her style of writing, she tackles everything from multi-tasking on the potty to mummying – your not allowed to be ill! The woman is hilarious, REAL and its a great blog to stop in and have a read of, if you have two minutes to spare. BUT be warned! You may end up being on there an hour and reading EVERYTHING! She is like a pringle. Once you pop you just can’t stop!  Visit her blog and see for yourself. But for now, here is an introduction.

I call myself the Nurturing Career Mama and I’m a midlands gal living in the south west. Because I work in marketing and PR my real name gets banded around quite a bit in association with my day job, so I choose to stay anonymous about my personal blogging. The last thing I would want when searching for my name in association with work, is some middle aged, short trouser techie engineer stumbling across me going off-on-one about the laziness of the male population, my brazenness about nursing in public, me hailing attachment parenting or jabbering on about my love of a good bit of cake.

I’m a full time mother of a toddler trying to be the nurturing mother I want to be. For any working ma you’ll know this feels like you’re a circus artist trying to keep all the balls in the air while breathing a mouthful of guilt induced fire. In my house this manifests itself in me breastfeeding and babywearing my toddler at the same time as cooking the tea, sending an email, empting the washing machine and eating some cake.

If I am to be honest, I’m a little on the crunchy side (that’s not the chocolate bar, but a reference to being a bit of a hippy mother). I’m one of those mums who uses cloth nappies, breastfeeds her toddler, co-sleeps and babywears…but you’re never gonna get me going bare feet, homeschooling or binning the make-up – that lot is here to stay.

My current phase of motherhood has entered Pottyhood. In other words, we are starting to transition babe from wearing nappies to using the poo pot.

On Sunday I was so proud that babe had managed to ‘produce’ a fine poopey specimen in the pink potty that now gets trailed around the house. We rejoiced in merriment at the wondrous gift that she had neatly delivered to us. This was followed by more carpet stains mixed with success…but on Monday it went more downhill.

We were having more nappy-off-time, but instead of peeing in the potty, babe held her potty in her arms and took a seat on my left foot. It’s getting quite nippy so I thought, ‘ah warm at last’. But it started to get too warm, too nice….argh wet…pee pee wet.

The little minky spalinky had peed on my foot! She left me with a sodden sock and soggy trouser bottoms.  Somehow I know this is only going to be the start.

  1. Oh, potty training. I did it as a mostly stay-at-home mom and it was torture; I wouldn’t want to have to do it and balance work, too. Actually, I’d have most liked to outsource it, but I looked around and astonishingly no relevant service yet exists.

  2. What a great post. Yes as a working mother I do constantly feel like I’m juggling and getting no where fast. Yes I’m constantly racked with guilt but I know deep down I’m doing the right thing but at the end of the day I have too. Good luck with the potty training. It gets easier. x

Ah go on go on go on - reply?
