Said the Bitch to the Cow

As a species, women are quite hard to understand. There, I said it.

We fill the complete spectrum with our differences, yet at our basic core, we are not all that dissimilar. We all have basic needs of love, acceptance, belonging and so on.

Why, then, do we bash each other, berate each other’s viewpoints and pile on guilt where extra isn’t needed?

Dear Ameli- Letter to a five month old

Dear Ameli                                                                                                                                 4 March 2010

I can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by, nor can I believe that five months ago this minute, I was opening my eyes from my first decent sleep in days.

You have grown in leaps and bounds this month. You seem in such a hurry. It has been beautiful to observe. It has been magical to be a part of. We are so blessed to have you as our baby.

Packing the Perfect Nappy Bag

Before my daughter was born I was given a great large nappy bags, with pockets and pouches for everything. It really was one of those ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ bags, and I was thrilled. Then she was born, and I steadily began to loathe that bag! I could never find anything, no matter how much I tried to keep the compartments separate, and keep ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’. It was impossible, and it was heavy!

As a baby wearer, I found that the nappy bag was heavier than the baby, and was really weighing me down. Sometimes we’d go out for an hour or two, and I’d lug the bag around with me, and never actually use it! Something had to be done!
