Here goes…

I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long while now, and I’ve finally decided to take the plunge. So let’s start with a little bit about me…

I’m a twenty something Mummy to a crazy, beautiful 2 year-old girl, and I’m also expecting my second baby any time in the next 3 weeks or so. I absolutely LOVE being a Mummy, but I won’t lie, it can be very hard sometimes. My munchkin makes me happy, sad, laugh, cry, worry every single day and I’m sure Munchkin2 will be exactly the same when he or she arrives. There can be good days and bad days, amazing days I never want to end and also difficult days I can’t wait to be over. Yet even on those difficult days she can do one thing that makes me howl with laughter or cry with happiness that it suddenly melts away all the stress and worry in an instant.

I also love being pregnant. I love feeling all the kicks and turns in my tummy, I love watching my tummy grow as my little creation grows (despite the horrendous stretch marks) and I love how Munchkin1 cuddles and kisses my bump, and talks and sings to ‘her baby’. But again, at the same time it can also be hard work. I have pelvic girdle pain (PGP), which can be fine some days and very painful on others; and then there’s the heartburn, the constant need to wee, the mad craving for Bourbon biscuits and Creme Eggs, and the already mentioned stretch marks. And let’s not forget the all important wonderful thing that is pregnancy hormones! To be fair they never really disappeared after my first pregnancy, I’ll never be able to watch a film without crying at least once ever again! Whilst I type this Munchkin1 is watching Frozen whilst eating her breakfast and I’ve just had to pause to shed a tear when Elsa and Anna’s parents die. Even I’m amazed I still cry at this point because it must be on at least 5/6 times a week in our house! 

So why am I doing this blog? Well pretty much every day there is at least one thing happens, or something my little girl says or does that makes me laugh so much that I need to share it with friends and family. I like to share these moments not only for others to enjoy them and laugh like I have done but also as a sort of therapy for myself. You see, as well as the crazy pregnancy hormones pulsing through my body making me feel the need to randomly cry my eyes out when there’s no Bourbons left, I also have anxiety. I’ve had it since I was a teenager, but I’ve also learnt how to cope with it and manage it. I’ve always loved writing, and although I may not be the best at it, it helps me to get things off my chest and feel more relaxed. It’s also lovely to read back and remind myself of the funny moments, and also the difficult ones as it shows me that I always get through those times no matter how hard they are. I hope you enjoy reading my special moments I share with you just as much as I enjoy living them! Right now I’m off to find the Munchkins Easter bonnet to decorate so there may be a shenanigan to share with you very soon.

So, here goes…
