The Most Practical (and Realistic) Parenting Advice you will Ever Read
Sometimes feeling hurried and harassed is part of being a parent
While it might not be how we imagined parenthood to be, all of us feel rushed and resentful at certain points in the day. Motherhood can feel like a thankless task when you've done three loads of laundry and cleaned the kitchen surfaces a gadzillion times. Even Kate Beckinsale, mother to Lily, admits, 'I do sometimes feel like that Exorcist lady.'
Don't feel ashamed if daily life rarely runs smoothly, with all tempers intact. The odd flare-up is horribly normal - and the best we can do is apologise afterwards and not beat ourselves up.
