Want To Stay Sane? 4 Items All Mums Should Have!

As a mother, I know just how stressful parenting can be. Being a mum might be one of the best life experiences, but it is also one of the hardest. Don’t get me wrong, my children are worth all the stress and worry but there are times when staying sane can be a struggle.

I know I’m not alone feeling like this, as I know so many other parents who are at their wits ends. We love our kids, but sometimes, we just want things to be a little easier, right? It might seem like making life as a mum less stressful is impossible, but believe it or not, it’s not.

If you want to make life a little bit easier, there are four items that you absolutely must have. Trust me on this, these things will change your life.

1. Tablet

Okay, so I’m not the type of mum who believes in sticking her kids in front of the television for hours at a time. However, on long car and plane journeys, while we’re in waiting rooms, and doing boring chores, I’ll make an exception.

If you want to prevent your little ones having meltdowns caused by boredom, having a tablet or iPad is a must. Kids hate being bored; they like to be up and about and doing things all the time. Having a tablet comes in handy, as it’s an excellent resource for keeping them entertained.

2. Watch

Have you ever told your kids that they have just ten more minutes at the soft play centre, only to realise that your phone has died? We use our phones for everything, from taking photos to keeping an eye on the time, but the problem is that the battery can die. We lead hectic lives and often, we forget to charge our phones. We know that we should be more organised, but with a million and one other things on our minds, it happens.

If you want to be able to make sure that you are always able to check the time, wearing a watch is the perfect solution. You can pick up some great watch designs online - the Esprit watches are an excellent choice, for an affordable price. 

As a mum, a watch is a must as being able to check the time is vital. But as well as that, watches are also a great way to add a little extra glamour to your outfit. Us mums often feel like we could be a little more fashionable, and by adding a stylish watch, we can be. 

3. Washer dryer

Yes, these are expensive, but they are also a great investment. Kids make a mess wherever they go; they throw food over themselves, jump in muddy puddles, fall over in the dirt. Children are notorious for getting whatever outfit they are in filthy, in just a few short minutes.  

For us mums, the stress of having to get everything washed and dried can be a nightmare. That’s why having a washer dryer is something that you should consider, as it allows you to get clothes cleaned quickly.

4. Easy to fold stroller

One thing that causes the most panic for us mums is having to get out and put down our strollers with one hand. In the other we have our key, changing bag, little one, and goodness knows what else.

If you are willing to make an investment in a new stroller, you should be able to find one that folds up and down with a simple touch. No more faffing about pulling this and that, you can get pushchairs that take one simple touch. How amazing is that?

Anything that makes our lives easier, us mummies should have. Whether that’s a tablet to keep the kids occupied or a pram that can be put up and down with one finger, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that we find ways to reduce our stress and stay sane.
