10 things i have learnt since becoming a parent.

When you have a baby, your whole life changes and its a whole journey of new things to learn and cope with. Here is 10 things i have learnt since becoming a parent.

Having a baby isn’t all cute faces and cuddles. Having a baby is scary, especially your first. Screams and nappy explosions can really take its toll on you.

  1. You forget about yourself.  Do you remember before you had your darling child all the new clothes and items you got yourself? I have found myself buying things for the kids ans completely forgetting myself.
  2. Your children will dress better than you.  My girls have a better wardrobe than i do. & Im not even ashamed of it.
  3. Babies do not come with a manual. There will be times where you wish you could read about how to make things better, but you can’t and you are a strong mama who can get through this.
  4. You will learn different cries. Before your baby, you didn’t think there was any more than a sad cry and a happy cry. Now you’ll find yourself an expert at knowing if the bay needs changing, feeding or attention just from their cry.
  5. Just how much your mum through. Did you every think “why is my mum being so cruel” “why wont she let me have a later curfew?”. You’ll soon realise that she was only doing that because she loves you & she cares for you. This one hit me hard.
  6. How quick time goes. You know all those times where you wish you where an adult? How the years where just a bit too slow? You will wish time would slow the hell down. You don’t want you babies to grow.
  7. 3:00am will mean something completely different to you. This 3:00am will not include wine and a greasy kebab.
  8. No matter what you do, you will be judged. Bottle or breast? disposable or cloth? you can never please anyone.
  9. You will find yourself learning all the words to kids programmes, and being proud of it. Peppa pig, Thomas the tank engine and Mr Tumble as your daily theme tunes.
  10. You will have never felt love till you help your baby in your arms. I always thought i’d felt love, until Rosie was placed in my arms, everything seemed to have changed. I know what love it.

Have you learnt anything since becoming a parent? 

Until next time,

  1. This is a fabulous read. I absolutely agree and couldn’t agree more, you do not know love until you have children.

    I absolutely love this list. I’m not a parent yet, so I can’t fully relate, but my friend has just become a mother for the first time and she’s already said some similar things 🙂
