a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Things I never knew . . .

until I became a mummy

1. that i could possibly love someone as complete and unconditionally as I do Emerson (how could you not?)

2. that i could literally watch someone sleep for an hour without even thinking about it or it feeling like an hour

3. that I could survive with only 2-3 hours of sleep in spurts (this is nothing like pulling an all night study session)

 Don't be distracted by my old bedding - way too much going on there!

4. that i could pick up, hug and comfort the same little person that just projectile vomited all over me

FYI - This is not vomit, it was her first rice cereal!

5. that projectile vomit is actually "projectile" and looks exactly like it does in movies!

 not vomit either - I am not that gross!

6. that someone with the vocabulary of 50 words could crack me up so much, that I literally start snorting & laugh my butt off

7. that bubbles, and flowers, and ladybugs, and pebbles, and magnets, and stickers are all AMAZING things when you are seeing them for the first time

8. that I would willingly get up every 2hrs and get my nipples pierced over-and-over again . . . aka first 2 weeks of breastfeeding

9. that sleep deprivation is a true form of torture and that it can make you delirious, feel like you are hungover and feel like you need to vomit! nice, i know, but true!

 Not sure what she was up to with her pants?

10. that all the cliche statements about having a baby are TRUE . . . "it is the hardest thing you will ever do but the most rewarding and amazing thing too"; that "you don't know real love until you have a child"; that "the world through a child's eyes really is beautiful" and that "your life as you knew it will never ever be the same."

life with this munchkin is good . . . xoxo E
