We love this definition of a cardigan;
Something worn by a child when its mother is feeling chilly.
No doubt the hardest job in the world is being a mother. And I don’t mean physically tasking. Emotionally, spiritually and in every sense you can imagine, it is tough! When I had my first son I was very well prepared- or so I thought. I read every magazine, spoke to every mother I knew attended all my antenatal & breastfeeding classes. As for baby items I left nothing out, baby cot, crib, bumper and all nursery furnishings were ready and waiting by the time I was 5 months gone. My pregnancy was smooth and there were no issues- until it was time for him to come out, lol.
I ended up having an unplanned ceaserean section which I didn’t mind at all since I simply wanted the baby out healthy. What I wasn’t prepared for was the emotional upheaval and sense of helplessness I felt once I stepped outside the hospital with my new baby. I was overwhelmed as realisation dawned on me that my husband and I were solely resposible for a human life. Thankfully the fearful feelings did not last long and I really enjoyed my baby. It was the people around me I felt sorry for as no one was allowed to even breathe near him!
We wish you a happy mother’s day and hope you enjoy your weekend. And if you’re ttc, the waiting period is depositing in you an abundance of patience, greatly needed when you have your child.
