Welcome to Parenthood!

Hi. How are you?

No, I mean; how are you really?

I mean, c'mon, you've just pushed a baby out of a part of your body you didn't think had ANY business being worked that hard, you're tired, you're sore, you're overwhelmed, and now you're in charge of an actual real live human being.

I want to help.

I know, i know, you've probably had all manner  of 'help' and 'advice' (those inverted commas are there for a reason) thrust upon you left right and centre whether you want it or not - mine included, sorry about that.  We aren't even related, but the minute I found out you were pregnant I've been desperate to help you as much as I can because I've been there, and I know how scary it is. It's exciting and new and terrifying in equal measure and the only people that really understand are the people that have been through it themselves, and recently. 

All things being relative (if you'll pardon the pun) I have been through it recently. Twice, for my sins. And as luck would have it your boyfriend and my husband are brothers, so all my advice is right here for you, whenever you want it.

The aim of this blog is to give me an outlet to release all the thoughts that are in my head and on the tip of my tongue without overwhelming you, and to give you a place to read it when you're ready for it. Or not, you don't have to read it, but there are going to be a whole lot of night feeds and you may as well have something to occupy your mind.

Everything I write will be light-hearted, and i'm here to elaborate on anything you need me to. I hope it will give you a place to laugh, some space to think, some sentiments you'll nod your head to and most importantly the feeling that you aren't alone.

Enjoy it, and if it helps even in the tiniest way then i'm glad I did it.

Lots of love, Me. xx
