In those early months, that first gummy smile feels award worthy. I've stitched the 'happy baby' badge firmly onto my parental sweater; right next to 'sleeping beauty' and directly above 'pooper scooper'.
Pregnancy is beautiful. Whether you love it or hate it you can’t deny that the end product is magical. But how often do we actually give ourselves a metaphorical pat on the back? It’s far to easy to get caught up with the semantics of motherhood that we forget to take a step back and appreciate what we’re doing. Creating a new life isn’t easy.
We’ve all had those questions (perhaps 1,000), where our children make us wish we had paid more attention at school (me included) and who can blame us? We already cover the roles of counsellor, nurse and best friend, however their inquisitive nature requires us to be astrophysicists, chemists and philosophers too. So rather than let my science background go to waste, I thought I’d put my 12 years of playing with Pyrex to some good use.
