Motherly Murmurs

I attend a music class every Wednesday morning for my little munchkin. It’s loads of fun for us both. It means interaction for him: stimulus through music and movement as well as interaction with others (even if it be seeing how another child responds when a tambourine is thrown at them by another class member) . Of course for me I get to assess my parenting: seeing how others do parenting and learn from...

What I’ve Learned in a Year

How quickly a year passes. I’ve only had one year with my little munchkin but here is what I’ve got so far: What I have learned in a year… The Early Days… Having your waters break for the first time brings on the strangest wave of emotion and it feels like you and your husband are the only human beings that count at that moment- you know something great is about to happen.

Oh The Places You’ll Go

The boots of our cars have been well used over the past nine months ie, since the birth of our son. There’s the pram, the bag, the blankets, the “what if” items.

That means I have to give birth?!” I decided I was going to be prepared for this, and read all I could to learn about what was happening to my body and what was going to happen to me when giving birth. Any first-time-mom’s concern, right?...

Using the Emergency Exit

It hasn’t been long since my son was born so the day is still fresh in my mind. The images from that day have been looked at so frequently which is probably aiding keeping the memories fresh. Being one of those who tried it all- attempted natural, received oxytocin, eventually went with epidural because my “epidurance” was wavering, received more oxytocin and landed up with my emergency...
