Thoughts on being a (greedy) mum – month 3

Ioan, my little cherub, is not the sleepiest little fella during the day, which means this isn’t a common occurrence.


When it does happen, I normally take the chance to do the washing, clean, or cook and eat. That doesn’t leave much time for blogging but here I am, trying my best to update you all on month three of motherhood (just as Ioan turns four months old!).

Well, it’s pretty amazing still, but also A LOT of work. When you have a non-napper like Ioan, you are on call pretty much 24/7, because they don’t want to entertain themselves. I might be able to get away with 10 minutes on the baby gym or 20 minutes in the bouncing chair, but then Ioan decides all he wants to see is mummy or daddy’s face, and you’re back desperately trying to engage with your bundle of joy before the tears start (his, not mine).

Luckily, I have met a great bunch of other mums who are making maternity leave pretty damn amazing. Lots of coffees, lunches and playdates mean we have the chance to whinge about our babies and realise that we’re all going through the same thing and life is really actually rather good.

Anyway, that lasted long …


Uh oh …
