Tomorrow I'll Be Better...

Tomorrow I’ll be better
I promise I won't shout so much
I promise to sit and read and smile
And not always be “in a rush”

Tomorrow I’ll be better
And not tired beyond belief
And when you ask to watch Peppa again
I won’t lie on ‘Mummy’s Bed’ and quietly weep


Tomorrow I’ll be better
Our lunch with be amazing!
It won’t consist of a ham sandwich, banana
And another pack of raisins

Tomorrow I’ll be better
I won’t moan about the washing up
And promise I won’t look sad


Tomorrow I’ll be better
I am going to give it a try
And when you’re naughty I’ll just roll my eyes
And not shout so much I cry

Tomorrow I’ll be better
You mean the world to me
I will forget about the silly rules
And give you ice cream for your tea



Tomorrow I’ll be better
And sniff your lovely tiny heads
And threaten to "eat you" for every meal

Tomorrow I’ll be better
And if I’m not perfect that’s OK
I’m trying to do the best I can...
...and tomorrow’s just another day*


*This post was written a year ago and sat in my drafts. It's truly amazing how much can change in 12 months so for all those Mum's thinking when will it get easier? One day? It just does.

  3. Thanks for the post. I'll remember to revisit this next time I've had a 'need to do better' day. I always start out the weekends thinking how great it's going to be and it never quite goes to plan!

  4. Ahh this could be written by me. I feel like such a nagging dragon sometimes. I read a lovely post about the vow of yellibacy and chanting "I'm the adult" to my myself is working a bit. This week!

  6. What a lovely poem and photos.
    (I think a ham sandwich, banana and raisins sounds like a very good lunch!)

  8. That bought a tear to my eye, as a lone parent who didn't choose this path my boy is everything I have no one to take half the burden I have loved stumbling across you & your absolutely honest blogs/vlogs & posts 😊 I also love the singing 🙈

  10. Such a lovely poem. I don't usually like poems as they're a 'bit' too feely but you've hit the nail on the head. I feel like a crap mum most days and it actually makes me question whether I want another which makes me then feel sad about it. Great little poem anyway, thanks for clicking publish xx
