Before I was a mama I never knew...

I always thought I was fully prepared for the wonders and wobbles of mummyhood but there are some things that I definitely wasn't prepared for.

Here are a few.
  • I never knew that my house would look like a constant bomb site. Despite many hours spent cleaning. Now I just roll will it and live amongst the mess (ish)
  • I never knew that if I ever dared to venture out sans-baby I would be met with cries of "well where is she?!" By people I know. As if I should be with child AT ALL TIMES. My future responses will be that I have swapped her for a Westlife CD. 
  • I never knew that clean clothing would be a thing of the past. Hey, what the point in even doing laundry. If I didn't have baby food smeared down my front or biscuit in my hair something went very wrong that day. (Or I had indeed swapped my child for a Westlife CD)
  • I never knew that playing with toys and singing nursery rhymes could be quite so exhausting. Now I wander around singing The Wheels on the Bus like some demented zombie.
  • I never knew that lack of sleep was actually a form of torture. Well now I know and can confirm that it is.
  • I never knew that I would spend all of my money on clothes for Ava and that I would walk around in holey clothes for the rest of eternity (well not quite that dramatic but you get my drift).
  • I never knew that I would become a pro nappy changer. On my knee? On a moving train? In the back of a car? NO PROBLEM!
  • I never knew that I would end up with the bladder of an old lady and would be up in the night. So annoying!
  • I never knew that I could love someone so much even when she pukes down my front or has a terrible nappy explosion I still look at her with googly-eyed adoration.

Is there anything about motherhood that you never knew but wish you had?

How exciting! It's not all bad honest. It's not put me off having another one put it that way :) xx

Just found your blog, it's really lovely! Can't wait to go back and read some of your older posts.

Loved this post especially these are my favourite kind. I suppose at 32 weeks pregnant I have all of these little things to look forward too! ;)

Happy to be your newest follower!

Swapping your baby for a westlife cd made me laugh! There are so many things I could list about motherhood, and I found myself nodding along with all your points! Xo

Cute post. I would've never believed my house would get messy either. Before baby, my husband and I had our chore charts & did them religiously. Now, we're lucky to get half done in a week. I'm still learning to deal with dusty floors.

I had no idea a visit to the Dr, BY MYSELF, could be so exciting ;). And to your point--I looked down at my shirt at one point while I was there and was shocked at what I found on it! Totally thought I'd left the house that morning with a clean one...:) Oh well, and little peanut butter never hurt anybody ;)
