Some bits and bobs about me 🙂
I’m a first-time mum living and learning with my husband and little one in the South East of good ol’ England.
After much invitation into motherhood, both gentle and strong, I tiptoed into it though it felt more like being dragged screaming and shouting on top of my voice.
I think I was still silently shouting, ‘really, I’m sure I’m not cut out for this and I doubt God will entrust me with an actual life’, when I discovered my bundle of joy was on the way.
I am so thankful for my little one even though I still can’t quite comprehend that I’m actually a mother. I am amazed by the privilege and I hope I do it justice.
I’m especially passionate about breastfeeding and I enjoy wearing my baby.
It’s brilliant watching him reach so many milestones and I find the amount of learning that takes place through playing with him intriguing.
I think I’m ambitious about the amount of solids he should be consuming by now, mostly using the baby led weaning method …
I wish I could magically have my house as tidy as I want …
and I could always do with more sleep.
Socialising with other mums is one of the fab perks of motherhood and I have found this so helpful.
I love praying, listening, reading, writing, talking, learning, thinking, reflecting silently and aloud, comping, walking, taking photographs, helping, educating, exploring, reviewing, and team work.
I wish I could really sing and dance, and also play the piano and a few other instruments. I also wish I could speak other languages apart from English, Yoruba and a teeny weeny bit of French.
Long live MAT Leave! It’s given me the time to start finding my feet in motherhood and the brilliant opportunity to hang out with my little one, husband and friends in a way I haven’t in so many years.
I really enjoy blogging about my experiences and mu-m-sings and hopefully encouraging someone out there through my writing.
We don’t all have to have experiences to benefit from them …
I hope someone, somewhere might just benefit from my record of and reflections on my life’s journey.
