Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is all about overcoming the challenges of the early years. We’ve all been there, your baby won’t stop crying, smelly nappies need changing, toddlers having meltdowns in the middle of the supermarket, negotiating red shoes versus blue shoes with your three year old and all topped off with a copious sprinkling of sleepless nights.
It’s a really busy time, and as mums we can often end up feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. But don’t despair because my guest today will help you see through the fog.
SuperMum, Libby Lennon and her husband have three busy boys aged 6, 3 and 2, and for a while there, they had three children under four. Libby’s eldest son started school this year, which is the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. It adds a new dynamic with getting out of the house on time in the morning and she still has two pre-schoolers and a part time job to contend with.
Despite all the balls that Libby keeps in the air, and the huge volume of work that she faces every single day, she does it with a spring in her step and a positive attitude. Libby has such a bright and energetic soul, and I know you’ll love her.
Even if you’ve come out of the chaos of the pre-school years, Libby is well worth listening to, because you can nod in agreement and say, ‘I remember it well’.
Libby’s really frank and honest about the challenges that the early years throw at you, but she gives us her own real life examples plus the actionable steps that she took. Amongst the chaos, she’s managed her own needs in the scraps of spare time that she’s able to scrape together.
By being personally fulfilled and happy, Libby’s better able to serve her family. Because of this, she’s successfully been able to stay positive, manage her mindset, and in years to come she’ll be able to look back at these intense early years with fondness because she’s genuinely enjoying the journey.
