The realms of parenthood

When you have a baby people always say 'it will get easier'. It does, in some ways, but rather than getting easier and returning to 'normal', your life continues to change. Some things you leave behind, and somethings you gain. Its almost as if you pass through various 'realms'.

This is how I would categorise the various realms of parenthood I have passed through so far. Which Realm are you?

Let them Judge, while you let them be little.



Yesterday I went out with a friend and the kids, and as always we got chatting about the perils of motherhood.

Snow Days!



So this week we had THREE snow days. THREE.

On one of these days we were pretty much housebound. It was hard work. I know Social media is showing a lot of people out sledging and having the time of their lives, however, for some very badly equipped individuals like us, this wasn’t an option.

Their life will never change as much as yours.....




When you start this parenting lark, there is a lot of stuff no one tells you. For good reason, I'm sure. One of those things is that your life, as a Mother, will change dramatically more than your partners.

From the minute you see that blue line on the test, your life changes. Suddenly you are 'with child', you are no longer just you... its you...plus one.
