It made me wish that blogs and specifically momma blogs had existed when I was expecting my first child . All I had was a book on pregnancy which I raced through concentrating only on the part where the writer discussed labour contractions in great and avid detail. Not that it mattered because I had the shortest labour in history and the gynaecologist had to be literally kidnapped from another nursing home so that baby 1 cpould be delivered safe and clear.
After 20 and a half years of parenting Im still trying to figure out which stage was hassle free -
I kept thinking maybe three years hence ? Five years down we were again making formula and changing diapers - then we were dealing with the green eyed monster , adolescent angst ,first crushes , pimples and assorted griefs not always voiced but which had to be sensed , some ignored and some dealt with - just when we thought we were over it - bang came the cycle round again it and we are now in it neck deep again with the younger one.
But all said and done , even if there is no rest for the wicked ,I am loving it , every goddamned minute of it .
