This is our everyday pictures…of my youngest son Theo and me. When i became a mother for the third time i realised how fast i had forgotten the first years of maternity. To be with a child everywhere and all the time, 24/7, no pauses, no private space. According to social media, for a mother is easy to have a time for all the children, be always fit and beautiful, to support her husband and keep their house clean at the same time… 24/7. But in fact, a woman with a small child never have time for herself and for her husband and she needs support and help more than ever.
