Some people take motherhood in their stride, it’s a role they were born to do & they’d never go back to their life pre-baby because everyday is wonderful. I hate to be THAT mother but jesus christ, there are some days where I would sell my left breast for just one day, or even half a day (beggars can’t be choosers and all that) to go back to being ‘pre-mummy’ Rachael. I love Teddy more than anything in this universe, I really, really do. But there are some days where I sit and want to sob over all the things I took for granted before I had him. You don’t realise all the things that will change as soon as you have a baby. They don’t change gradually over time. It’s instant. Like not being able to sneeze or cough without peeing yourself.
I’m not afraid to take one for the mama team & look back on all the things I miss since becoming a mother….
