Another milestone… first pair of shoes

Being a Mummy is the most incredible thing I have ever done. All the things that I had achieved in my life pre baby seem to pale in comparison – of course I am proud of things I have done, be it my career, my little home, the places in the world I have seen or other goals I have achieved, but somehow the things I was most proud of don’t seem to be quite so amazing now.

The triplet mummy

I love our new house! I am still tripping over babies, but I am not tripping over quite so much clutter. I do not have to lug three heavy car seats in and out of the car every day and we regularly walk to our local sure start centre, library and market where I am getting to know the locals.
