Food for Thought Before Bedtime

On the eve of her son’s first birthday, one of my mum friends said this:

“It’s like you put in hundreds of hours feeding them, changing them, being so tired you’re like a robot, being fed up, sad, and thinking you’ll never feel normal again and one day you look up and they’re going about their business. Being an active part of the world and interacting with you and you can see that what you were doing was all for them, to make them a little person. It’s f**king amazing. You’ve built a relationship. You’re a little team and you did it together.”

I thought I’d share it on my blog: share it for the new mums at the start of their journey, share it for the experienced mums, share it for any parent who is working their socks off to ensure their child has the best possible life you can supply. 

You’re all doing wonderfully. 

Night night. Sweet dreams (and I hope you aren’t woken by said child during the night or too early in the morning.)
