APPLAUDING TO ONE!

Ummm where has my baby gone? Has anyone else felt like this...? I don't know whether to be happy or to cry, it's a surreal yet bitter-sweet feeling. Willow Kamila, the light in our lives turned 1 last month. If you've followed me since my pregnancy journey, I know what you're thinking, "where the heck has that time gone?". Of course I am compelled to write about it, but first of all, I am going to give myself a big slap on the backside for not only surviving but thriving (as all us mamas do) in my first year of being a new mum (slaps self on backside).

THAT DADDY BOND

I often get asked what do I love most about being a mum, there really are endless amounts to love. I can't think of one thing that I don't love about being mum but I do know what my absolute favourite thing is... it's seeing the father daughter bond between my husband and my baby girl.

It's something I never had and still don't have with my dad. He isn't apart of my life anymore and he's never met Willow. It's something I think about quite often but I have accepted and come to terms with the fact that having a relationship with him caused me more hurt and pain than what it was actually worth. I utterly envy and adore seeing the way Darius dotes over Willow, he's a proud father, seeing his affection and love towards her with everything he has is something I cherish so very much. It makes me very emotional, in a happy way of course when I see the way he looks at her, how she touches his heart and brings out the inner child and the soft side in him. It's hard not to get teary - just as I am right now writing this. The bond they have and the relationship they will continue to have together every day is so important to me as I know it is to Darius too.

REAL MUM PERSPECTIVE

I came across an Instagram post the other night and the focal point was showing appreciation for all of the REAL MUMS out there in the world!

Now, this really did not sit well with me at all because let's be honest here... what is a REAL Mum? Define, a REAL Mum? I don't know about you, but to me; we are ALL REAL Mamas!

The world of social media allows an individual to share and post accordingly, their highs, their lows, along with their challenges and their triumphs with some of us choosing to share more than others.

Please don't take offense to anything that I have to say as that is not my intention, I am merely speaking from my own experience.

PRE-BABY FEELS

So last past week I have been having babymares! Those sleepless nights where all of the typical hormonal emotions come over you... that damn stupid F word "fear" And then the questioning starts to hit... "Am I going to be a good mother?"

I think it hasn't really hit me till now that wow... I am actually going to be a Mama! I am going to be responsible for another wee humans little life for the rest of my life. I started going through a series of questions in my head like, what kind of mother am I going to be?... More importantly what kind of mother do I want to be?
