Thanks for not saying I told you so.

To my friends who were mothers before me...

Im sorry.

Im sorry I was late and messed up nap time when I only had myself to organise.

Im sorry for complaining I was tired.

Im sorry for inviting you for drinks one month postpartum.

Im sorry for thinking a rooftop bar was an appropriate place to bring a baby.

Im sorry for replying I wish I was still in my pyjamas at midday.

Im sorry for bringing you ridiculous newborn baby outfits made from scratchy material instead of meals for your freezer.

Im sorry I cuddled your newborn and didnt offer to fold your washing.

Im really sorry for comparing pet ownership to motherhood.

Im really, really sorry for ever giving you parenting advice.

Thanks for not saying I told you so.

#Your Stories

There are pros and cons to every size family, but let me tell you why a family of three is so magical to me.
When my daughter started daycare, I spent a lot of time trying to find the right fit for her and our family. I did a lot of research and asked a lot of questions. Over and over again though, the answer to my question would come back the same, "she'll be fine."
I want hours upon hours of delicious sleep followed by hot cups of tea, reading my book and nothingness. But I'll have to get up now to comfort, feed, clean, dress, entertain, love, laugh, play, and repeat.
