Most people who know me, know about my touch aversion. I don’t think everyone understands how bad it can get sometimes.
Do you ever just look at your babies and get so overwhelmed with emotion. You think to yourself I made that little ( or not so little) creature. You are little parts of me.
I can’t even properly put into words how much love I feel for my children. There are some moments where it just halts me in my tracks. It takes my breath away. It’s usually when we’ve had a really busy* day. I eventually get to bed and on my way I stop in to check on Connie and Angus.
Angus has just turned one. One whole year old. I can’t believe it! It has made me think how quickly time passes, it also got me thinking about how different things were, with him compared to with Connie.
When you go anywhere with children you pretty much have to pack the entire house, including the kitchen sink.
We carry sooo much stuff!
To continue Connie’s Year of Transport Papa took her out in his lorry. She loved it!
She helped him clean the lorry, inside and out, she was co-driver telling him where to go and she took great joy in waving to the other drivers and having them wave back!
I mean there are plethora of reasons that having kids is great. But other than the obvious (and sort of boring) reasons, these are my favourites
Today is World Maternal Mental Health Day.
The world expects you to be happy all the time. You have a baby! You have what some people have wanted for a lifetime. You should be grateful. There is no room for sadness when there’s babies in your life.
But there is.
