I am a new mum.. well newish, my son is seven months old tomorrow and I am finally starting to get my head around this whole mum thing.
Being a mum is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. In my pre-baby life I worked full time, gymed all the time and loved to cook and travel. Now I breastfeed, think of when the next feed is, think of what I can get done between now and the next feed, think of what I can puree for dinner tonight, oh yeah and then there is the laundry, lots and lots of laundry, how is there so much for only three of us?
As well as being a new mum I am in a new town, we recently moved as my husband is studying full time and we had to move to be closer to the Uni. I have had times where all I have loved being somewhere new and moments where I have wanted to run back to my comfortable old town, to be close to my parents, to be in my home that I loved with it’s beautiful ceiling roses and polished boards.
So every week I’ll write a post about my life as a new mum, as I try to figure out what I am doing hopefully I can bring a smile to your face and let you know that you aren’t the only one who has gotten home from the supermarket and realised you had just been walking around with a vomit stain all down your back!
