#MoreThanAMutha is all about celebrating the things that women are, as well as being amazing mothers.  In a world where many women feel like they lose their identity when they become a mum, it is important to celebrate and shout that we might be mums, but we are not only that and we are still a force to be reckoned with.

What makes you more than a mother? 

Well the answer is in the title. Mother Hustles – I decided to call myself mother hustles when I got divorced as I truly realised the meaning of the word ‘hustle’.
When it happened I was living on my own with my two small children back then 2 and 3 whilst I was trying to run my very newly born business, managing the divorce entirely by myself and trying to sell our marital home and buy a new one for me and my children. AND then starting my digital mums course yeah… lets say I got quite good at hustling.

Are people surprised when they realise you are more than a mum? Does that bother you?

No at all, I’ve always been a multitasker so they’re not surprised at all

What challenges do you face when you’re juggling motherhood and being more than a mum?

Well childcare has got to be the number one. I”m very lucky to have a supporting network around me but I sometimes take on more than I can realistically do and end up working when I have the kids. So I struggle sometimes with the guilt of being with them and having fun because I’m to busy on my phone! (for work obviously)

How long did it take you to remember you were more than a mother after you had your child(ren)?

I think it has to be when I went back to work after having my second child where I had to do a full time job then come home and still do everything around the house and be with the kids.

Who, or what, helps you to make time for yourself? What do you do to escape the stresses of motherhood?

One of the perks of being divorced is that I get two weekends a month to myself and my wonderful fiancé makes sure we have fun when we are alone. We are always out and about eating and drinking! That helps a lot but I still squeeze in some work.

What advice would you offer a mum who might not be feeling like they are more than someones mum right now?

Goodness me! We all are more than a mother, it’s just that we don’t get the credit for it. It’s such a shame that we do all the super mum things and are taken for granted. So my advice is put your “more than a mutha’ badge on right now and wear it with pride. I don’t need anyone telling me I am a super mum. I know I am (cocky smile)

Any advice for someone who is going through the same things as you are right now in their quest to be #MoreThanAMutha?
