Forgive me Blogspot for I have sinned, it's been weeks since my last posting. But I have a good reason.
I was really down in my last few weeks at work, felt awful and huge and knackered. Then when I finished work it got worse so I didn't really just want to spend the whole time moaning. But now.....!!
I AM A MUM!!
I won't lie, it was horrific - worse than I imagined (long story for another time) but I have the most beautiful result in the world. My gorgeous son Freddie. He's now a whole 5 days old and aside from giving mummy and daddy one completely sleepless night, he has been an absolute angel. I'm under no illusion that it will last but what do i care!? I'm on so many drugs right now , nothing matters. (thank you hospital!)
He has the most wonderful blue/black eyes that you could swim in, daddy's nose (sorry son, but you're gonna have a corker there) daddy's ears (yea!!! it means he can avoid the massive flappers from my side of the family) and according to Husb, he has mummy's mouth. Hmmmm, not sure about that but I'll take it.
The long legs and big feet have me very confused seeing as Husb and I are pretty short and mini but hey ho. His hair looked dark to start with but he has no eyebrows so I think the fair ginger gene might be creeping through....Meh, it's character building! Oh, and he has the smelliest farts I've ever experienced from a baby. (Too much information? I don't think so, these things are important!)
Anyway, it's Saturday night and I'm indoors watching the end of the the Champions League Final and not at a 40th birthday party and I don't care. My baby boy is asleep on Daddy's lap and I'm not as shattered as I thought i would be (but everything is relative I guess). So signing off for now as I'm missing my cuddles.
- A first time mum at 39, trying not to let my son kill me off too soon. Busy juggling a new family, a new house and a tricky recording schedule I figured blogging would be less expensive than therapy and less embarrassing than shouting at rude and stupid people in the street/on trains/at the supermarket.
