Before I Became A Mummy…..
If I awoke during the night it was because I needed a wee and not to attend to a small person
I could go to the toilet in peace and shut the door!
I never had dried on snot or sick stains on my clothes (that weren’t my own doing at least!)
I didn’t have to keep picking cushions up from the floor a billion times a day!
If I needed help in waking up, I would set an alarm. Now I have a toddler shout my name or a baby that cries to wake me from my sleep instead!
If I wanted to pop out I could be out the door in a couple of minutes. Nowadays it can take about 20 minutes and it usually involves tears from someone!
I never had to experience the ‘terrible two’s'!
I never tripped over toys as I passed through a room! Shoes maybe, but never toys.
I didn’t have to watch what I say in case words I used were copied!
My dining chairs never had such sticky stains on them
I had never heard of Calpol
I didn’t know that channel 71 on free-view was the CBeebies one!
I never used a vacumn cleaner as much!
I didn’t know what being a Mummy really meant
I never knew how it felt to love as much and as unconditionally as I do now
