Over the weekend my due date came and went. I feel frustrated to say the least, but what can you do – at this stage, it would seem that the baby is boss. So while I try and wait patiently for our new additions imminent arrival, I’ve been looking on the bright side and savouring my last days as a mother of one.
Eating out with ease, hassle free food shopping, a quick coffee catch up with a friend. Just really enjoying a few of those simple things that at the moment are so easy with one. Because before I know it, my attention will be divided and I’ll be well and truly outnumbered. Can you sense my concern?
It’s just, for over three years we’ve created a cosy little family unit – just the three of us. And I’ll be honest that it feels a bit daunting to have that dynamic change. Did you face the same fears when you added to your family? But rather than dwell on all the unknown, like how in the world we’re going to cope with two kids, my husband and I are looking at our Amelia in a different light. We feel lucky to have had all this time with just her. We’ve made incredible memories as a family of three and although we won’t be able to help but always think of her as our baby – we’re also pretty excited for her to embark on this big sister gig. She’s going to nail it!
So with Amelia at nursery school, I will bid you farewell as I’m off to take a much needed nap … because I can …for now.
Love, Amry xxx
