Today mostly looked like...

Quote of the Day

"The worst feature of a new baby is its mother's singing."

I like to think that I haven't got a bad voice. I'm by no means tone deaf and can harmonise with the best of them.  What IS awful is what I sing about. 

No, I can't just sing traditional nursery rhymes (which have you noticed are pretty violent? Chopping off blind mice tails with carving knives, dying of the plague, cribs falling from trees...!).

No, we don't have twinkling stars here or cows jumping over the moon. We have poo.

Never before have I found so many words to rhyme with poo, poop, or poopie. I'd like to think I'm not the only Mum that does this (please, somebody?) ...

Our nappy changing song for example, goes like this:

"You do a little poo
It comes out of your bum
It comes from the food
That went into your tum

You do a little poopie
It comes out kinda gloopey
If friends could hear me now
They'd think I'm kinda loopey"

I'm sure as a result, Ffion's first words will be nappy related.

Quote of the Day

"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."  Agatha Christie

Quote of the Day

"The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new."  Rajneesh

I know I'm biased but...

I'm back

It's been 6 months since I last posted. I've been busy being a mum!
Tomorrow this blog is starting a new chapter (and is getting a makeover too).
Pregnancy was just the most amazing, magical time. A walk in the park compared to my day to day life now. But my life now is enriched. I have never known a love like that of the love I have for my daughter. She truly is a blessing.

Who knows what adventures the two of us have in store...
