Nadine is supporting Fabulous’s Mum Of The Year competition and has spoke out about the highs and lows of motherhood and coparenting with Jason Bell.
“I’m not a single mum, I am just a mum.
As a woman I think we are capable of doing so many things. There is great ability to compartmentalise — to focus on the task at hand, do it well and then move on to the next one, while having another million things going on.”
She went on to say
“It’s difficult and there are times when you are like, ‘That’s it’.
Some days I am fine but us mums are not robots, we are not perfect, we have to give ourselves a break and a pat on the back .”
Discussing how they manage to make it work with their daughter, she reveals: “Anaíya is the priority.
“She knows exactly where she is going to be, she knows exactly what is going on. There are no surprises. I am very thankful of the situation.”
“Mums don’t get enough recognition or credit for what they do.
It is often assumed that there is some kind of fairy in the house who makes the food, does the washing and the organising.
There is not that cheerleader who is bigging people up for doing what seems to be normal tasks but it’s really quite difficult to do on top of everything else.”
And that’s why Nadine is backing the competition.
She says: “It’s so lovely to have Mum Of The Year. There should be Mum Of The Week — and the day.
Any time mums are getting celebrated, I am right there celebrating.”
