I've just been sat watching my lo sleep as he is a bit poorly today with a cold & temp and was just thinking about how amazing being a parent actually is and the unconditional love that comes with it. Before I got pregnant babies really weren't my thing, friends and families babies did nothing for me and if I held them I felt nothing more than an urge to hand them back to mummy as soon as possible in fact everyone was convinced me and my long term partner of 13yrs would never have kids. Even when I fell pregnant although happy I still wasn't a million percent sure it was the right thing as having a career was so important to me. Anyway nothing prepared me for the major change when I finally gave birth in Sept, it was love at first sight and now I can't believe how much I've changed! My career is no longer important at all and would literally do anything for this tiny little person. I must kiss him a billion times a day and don't even care if I go out smelling of baby sick or get dribbles of any description on my clothes. I also view other babies differently now as when I see one I can't stop cooing over them and can talk about them endlessly!! I can't believe I'm the same person as this time last year. Was anyone else the same as this or was it just me?
