I want to break free! A song for new mummies (and a must-read for new daddies).

Here at Outie, we are all about having fun. But we also happily address the ‘messy bits’ of parenting too. So here’s a song for all the new mummies who might be feeling a little, erm, trapped and overwhelmed by the extremely demanding, tiring (yet also extremely rewarding and amazing!) role of Mummy.

 

Sing it mummies (to the well-known tune by Queen):

 

I want time for me

and to be a great mummy

I want to break free from your cries

You keep me so occupied

And I just fed you.

I just need time for me.

Dad knows (or at least he should), Dad knows

I need time for me.

 

I’m going cray-zee

I’ve become a Mum for the first time

I’m tired and things feel surreal

even though I’ve fallen in love.

Yet God knows, God knows

I want to make tea.

 

It’s strange but it’s true

I can’t get over the way you need me like you do

So I have to find time

Before turning to wines

Oh how I need time for me, baby

Oh how mummy needs some sleep

Oh how I just need time for me.

 

But life still goes on

I can’t get used to living with a, living with a, living with a baby

by my side

I don’t want to put you back, hon

Got to make it on our own

But baby can’t you see

I’m a very tired mummy.

 

I need time for me,

I’m not super mummy,

Yeah,

I want, I want, I want to __________  ____________  (make tea/get sleep/break free).

 

 

Listen up daddies! Make sure mummy gets a break and always say thank you for the smallest things. Those small things make a big difference.

 

Mucho aroha to all new mummies who need to ‘break free’.
