Things I wish I had been told

 

You get bombarded with advice as soon as you so much as look in the direction of a baby, never mind when you start waving around manically your pee stick. Ok was it just me who did that?!Pregnancy announcment

Here’s somethings I wish I had been told.

You will sleep

I will never understand why people need to ram down your throat that sleep will never happen again. You’re pregnant, you have enough anxiety and hormones changes to be dealing with without that flung into the mix every time you step outside your front door. You will sleep. As I said in a previous post, you absolutely will sleep, don’t let the horror stories scare you. The people who tell you these are mean, or lying, or both. It won’t be the long lazy lie in’s of your teenage years, more like an hour or two max at a time. You’ll learn to catch a quick cat nap and survive on less sleep than ever imaginable. And it will be worth it. Most of the time! For the other times there’s chocolate.

When smug comes to bite you in the a$$

That was me last night, little miss smug. Little A had a great day in creche, followed by a lovely relaxed evening and some great fun in the bath, only a few tears while getting changed for bed. He was tired. A story, head on the shoulder, then the sounds of soft snoring. He was asleep, bang on time and I’d even managed to go to the gym. Just call me super mum. Ha more like super smug mum.

I went downstairs and whittled away the evening doing god knows what as there is still a mountain of laundry to do. I went to bed early thinking, wow we’ve cracked this sleep thing once and for all.

Head hit the pillow, immediate black out sleep.

Waaaaa, waaaaaa, WAAAAAAAAA

March favourites

You are my favourite wishfulstylequeen

Another month that seemed to whizz past in the blink of an eye. I’ve been busy getting my head around the fact that Little A is turning one this month. In one sense I cannot believe that this day last year I was in labour, thinking he’d arrive any second, oh the naivety, it feels so long ago, like Little A has always been here and in another sense how did my baby turn into a toddler?!

March was a great month, with plenty of bank holidays, and while it was still chillier than a cold room in a butchers, the longer evenings started showing promise of the long awaited summer.

St Patrick’s Day was spent trekking west to Mayo, travelling through some amazing local parades, I felt incredibly proud to be Irish. The sense of community was evident, a wonderful moment to stop and appreciate that togetherness.

Easter weekend involved plenty of chocolate, delicious roast grub and some lovely walks as a small family, and more with the whole gang.

I tried a lot of new things in March but I managed to whittle it down to two favourites, one beauty and one baby. It’s safe to say my beauty pick has soared to the dizzying heights of my hall of fame. Yes it’s THAT good!
