I'm a new mum to a gorgeous 2 month old little boy and one day I got thinking about how becoming a mummy has been a massive learning curve, the biggest one I should imagine you will ever have in your life. It seems like every day you learn something new and no matter how many books you read I still don't think it prepares you for what a massive thing becoming a parent is. 

So I have been compiling a little list on my IPhone of all the things I have learnt so far. I'm sure in the years to come I will carry on learning about what's it's like to be a mummy.

* Your time is no longer your own. Whenever your little one is awake you can't be far away.

*You learn what unconditional love really is, no other love compares to the love you feel for your child.

*Babies have a knack for realising that they are hungry the minute you sit down to eat.

*A kettle takes forever to boil.

*No matter how tired  you are during a night feed, that little satisfied smile from your baby at the end of a feed makes the tiredness worth it.

*Seeing your baby in pain is the worst thing ever, my little boy has just had his first lot of injections and I could of cried myself watching him cry. The pain was noting lots of mummy cuddles couldn't fix though.

*Your house will never be tidy again. At 2 months old I'm already picking up after my son all the time and it's only going to get worse isn't it?

*You are never on time... Ever. Or is that just me? Say we are going out at 12, I start getting us ready at 10 and it still ends up around 12.30 before we are out the door.

*You become a whizz at doing things with one hand.

*Sleeping when your baby sleeps is easier said than done. I have tried so many times but I find myself tossing and turning unable to switch off thinking "Oh I'll just do this first" or "I'll just catch up on last night's Eastenders"

But the most important thing I have learnt since becoming a Mummy is that it is the most amazing thing in the world and I I've every single bit of it, well I don't really love the nappy changes but it is part and parcel of being a Mummy. It is the most rewarding job ever and the thanks you get are beautiful smiles and cuddles every single day!
