As time goes on I feel more comfortable with this mum gig and I find myself seeing the world through different eyes, softer eyes.
Perhaps it’s learning the ability to be patient and living in the present, enabling me to see that the most special moments can come from the most ordained things.
I also find it so much easier to choose my battles. Some things just aren’t worth the energy worrying or arguing over when there’s another little human depending on you.
If I could turn back time, I’d sit my younger self down and explain that the things I think are a big deal now, really aren’t.
I’d explain that the days and nights may be long but the years go by too fast.
