Feb 2016 was the beginning of the biggest change in my/ our lives. We were weeks away from meeting our child and getting our heads around becoming parents. No amount of reading or research prepares you for the journey or challenges ahead.
In such a short space of time priorities shift completely; you want ( and need ) to be the best parent you can possibly be. This little bundle you're entrusted with becomes the centre of your entire universe and is completely reliant on you. Things you thought were important before become uninteresting and you find happiness in other pursuits, usually centred around your little family bubble. Everything is new and shiny and fascinating... and difficult. So so difficult. You doubt your abilities, you lose sleep with worry, you question your every decision. You wonder who thought it was a good idea to bestow this little life on you...
Then you realise you're doing all you can to enrich this tiny persons life, you're winging it but it seems to be going well and your little one is flourishing.
Then all of a sudden you're 15 months down the line and you have this fascinating, kind and loving toddler with such an interest in the world and you want to share all the lovely happy things with them.
Parenthood is tough, challenging, enlightening, hilarious and an absolute gift. Before this I thought I knew what happiness was but I couldn't have been more wrong. THIS is true happiness
