This book isn't really about being a mum. It's about being you - while you are a mum. Tui Fleming's beautifully presented book, Dear Mummy, You're Important Too, is full of nuggets of wisdom, practical advice, inspiring quotes, confessions, and a few home truths. It's like talking with a really, really good friend who's been there and done that and wants the best for you. Tui, a mother-of-two, knows very well the challenges of motherhood, and how hard mums can be on themselves. It's refreshing to read some of her more confessional anecdotes. In a frank and friendly way, she strives to motivate mums to gently reclaim themselves while navigating the highs and lows of motherhood. Chapters cover 'filling your cup first', 'finding your true north', plus a host of other topics including mummy guilt, other people's expectations, your partner and your body. The 'stop check'
pages where readers can muse on questions and statements, are useful and thought-provoking, and Tui has included some beautiful, soul-nourishing quotes, and some delicious, easy recipes.
