Lessons Learned

So far in my journey of motherhood, I have learnt more and more than I ever thought possible:

  • How to prepare an entire meal one handed
  • Shower with a baby attached
  • Sing incy wincy spider a thousand times to get a smile
  • To soothe a tummy with a warm hand and furious bicycle legs
  • To change a nappy with one hand and do an entire puppet show, complete with voices, with a sock found on the floor with the other
  • That alone time really is just about having a minute to have a wee
  • 4 hours total sleep can equal a good nights rest
  • Cake can equal breakfast (as can last nights dinner!)
  • Breast milk can fix anything from a rumbly tummy to a sticky eye to a bout of nappy rash

But the thing I have learned that has surprised me the most is how confident I am in me.

I no longer look to others, or seek, approval but rather trust my instincts.

I ask for help and am full of gratitude when being advised, and in turn I try and help other parents with the tips and tricks I’ve learned.

That my work, although most enjoyable, no longer gives me the satisfaction I once had. And I feel complete only when I get home and get smothered in Peachy love and dribble.

To be a mumma is the hardest and most rewarding job in the world and I wouldn’t give it up for all the Loubatin’s in the world.

One thought on “Lessons Learned

  1. I agree, being a Mum really changed me. I also had more confidence in myself and trusted my judgement more….although I still even after 4 children often phone my Mum for advice 🙂 I also found I could talk to people easier because I had to. I woud love more children as I am just at my happiest when I am with my kiddies
