A day in the life of motherhood
It’s the simple things in life that keep me going. Before I became a mother to my four children I had lost my way a little in life. Life kept slapping me in the face with problems and no solution.
We will start with my first born my precious daughter who is now 8. I didn’t actually know I was pregnant till one day my mother looked at me and I quote “kirsty if I didn’t know you any better I’d say you looked pregnant!” . I stood and said nothing. There was my halo right down to my ankles. I knew in my mind I was but testing seemed a little scary at the time. A day later a took a test and yup there was the lines. I knew instantly I was keeping her there was no talking me out it. People flung their own dramatic pregnancy stories at me and wow let’s not lie some stories are enough to scare the crap out of any new mum to be. Daddy didn’t want to be involved he still isn’t today but that’s his issue will never be ours!
I felt so much love for this little jelly bean ever growing on the inside the stresses of her father just didn’t matter. Because at the end of the day I had someone to love unconditionally every day for the rest of my life!
Labour came and as scarey as it was it wasn’t as bad as the stories I had been told 72 hours of natural labour and there she was. Her golden blonde hair. Her deep blue pool eyes and here’s the part no one tells you is how much love you will instantly feel when you have them in your arms. How you will feel that rush every day everytime you see them and the pride.
Now here is that part no one tells you about
No1: when they say poonami nappy they really mean yeah there’s no saving that vest sweetie. Your going to spend ages mastering the art of taking a vest up without smearing crap all over your baby (after four kids I still ain’t got it)
No2 : when night fright comes in and there’s monsters are under the bed you always kick there ass. Even if it looks like some sort of new karate!
No3 : when your child gives you a phone with no one on the other side you flipping answer it! Trust me I’ve just spoke to santa!
No4: POTTY TRAINING yup that joy. That one where they pee on the carpet more than the potty. Mines just uses hers as a drinking cup (My youngest of course not my oldest)
But lastly everyone tells you how quickly they grow up. LISTEN they were right make sure you enjoy every last moment as the one thing that people are right about is how quickly they grow. Enjoy the late night snuggles and pretend phone calls because before you know it, it’s boy bands and boys
