Why Can’t We All Work From Home?!

Today is Monday. I have never really liked Mondays. But I especially don’t like today. We just had a fabulous 10 day holiday. While 10 days may not sound like a long time, the past ten days has truly felt like forever.

‘Oh, just wait until…’ … Can’t we just celebrate together

One thing I’ve noticed since getting pregnant is the amount of “warnings” people give to you surrounding birth, babies, children, etc. I don’t understand why people automatically “prepare” you for the hardest stages of parenthood and hardly ever talk about the simple and unexplainable pleasure and love that will overflow your heart.

Apart from H&M baby clothes which I can’t rave about enough, it’s been very hard to find much that isn’t six months too big for him in every area except the bum area.
