So I have this idea of what it’s going to be like to be a mum. Or maybe I should re-phrase that. I have this idea of what I would like it to be like to be a mum!
Let’s just say in my head at the moment it’s like being in one of those cartoons, where you’ve got the little angel on one shoulder and little devil on the other.
The angel is saying to me, oh it’s going to be so wonderful, you’ll dress the bub in cute little clothes and go for long strolls to the cafe where we’ll sit and enjoy a hot choccy and bub will be so well behaved.
We’ll go to the shopping centre, then come home snuggle on the lounge have lots of laughs, we’ll both have nap time and all will be hunky dory.
And it would appear I’m not the only one with these thoughts! At breakfast on Sunday, a friend of ours pipes up and says that he would love to be a stay-at-home-dad and meet my husband down the local cafe for coffees, and then no doubt go and hang out on the their yachts with bubs! Yes all hunky dory isn’t it! Gotta love the angel take on a Mum’s life!
THEN! Then the DEVIL pipes up – ‘are you freaking kidding me’.
