Everything I owe, I owe to my mother’. This is one of my favourite quotes. To me motherhood is a dream come true. Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a Mum, to be called Mama and to have children of my own. It’s a true blessing. Motherhood comes with a source of responsibility and a sense of fulfilment.

The day I became a Mother was the day I said goodbye to freedom, and solo bathroom trips. There’s no instruction booklet for being the best Mum, you just have to trust your instinct. Teaching your little ones and letting them be the best they can be is a real challenge in life and something every mother will go through. Worry is inevitable, but it’s a learning process and with every challenge along the way there will be amazing ones to come. Its always good to remember that we brought our children to this world and it is our children that help us be the best we can be and help us make memories from the little things in our everyday ordinary lives.

At times, mums will feel alone, confused and loose their true identity as a women in the process. Motherhood has so many different roles and each motherhood journey is unique in its own way. During our Kensington Mums Motherhood exhibition which took place in June 2013, I met many Mums from all walks of life who shared their personal motherhood journey. This day should be celebrated because so many Mother’s work super hard all year round and rarely get the merit they deserve. So although I’m a bit biased, I’m down for it one million percent.

As a Kensington Mum myself, I feel I have so many different roles in my family. Mothers are multi-taskers. Nurturing and celebrating ourselves is the first step towards nurturing and bringing joy to others. We are not just Mums, we are more than a Mum.

A mother is ‘A woman who realizes that no matter what she achieves in life her child is the only unique achievement that marks her life’.

Kensington Mums aims to engage with local Mums to let them know they are not alone while raising their little ones. The best thing a Mum can do is to live the example of a happy, loving relationship, understanding that as mothers they are moulding their children’s views and beliefs about love, relationships, self-worth and the world around them. Off courses fathers also play an important role.

I hope you can all join me and other Mums to put the mmmm into motherhood.

We are proud to share with you that after popular demand, we have teamed up with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to re-create the Motherhood Exhibition.

The exhibition will have the same concept as our previous Kensington Mums Motherhood Exhibition where Mums from all walks of life are invited to come and share their voices and stories on motherhood. The exhibition will showcase and support mums to develop and share their own motherhood stories using their own personal pictures which to them illustrate the definition of motherhood.

We will be using the activity from www.storyofmum.com  and there will be short filming as well documenting the many different motherhood journeys.

If you would like to come along, for a bit of fun, play and  networking I invite you to attend one of the sessions at your local children centres in the borough. Crèche is  provided at some of the sessions, but must be booked in advance and there will be play sessions for your little ones.

The final motherhood exhibition date will be confirmed in the New Year. If you missed the last exhibition, this is your chance to take part. Now is your time to shine and join me and other Mums to celebrate Mother’s Day every day! Just because we deserve it.
