Six years ago The Husband gave me a kiss goodbye and headed off to eat some chinese food and get a good night’s sleep. I was lying in a hospital bed with ridiculously captivating baby in my arms. This was real. I expected someone to come in and tell me I wasn’t allowed to look after this precious little being.
I stared. She stared. I asked her if she was hungry. She wan’t fussed. The ladies in blue dresses weren’t massively impressed with that. Apparently babies are supposed to be hungry. I wasn’t impressed that noone prepared me for how much pain I’d be after a thirty hour labour. Little trixters.
And just like that – blink and you’d miss it, she’s six. SHE’S SIX!! I know all parents say but really I have the smartest, funniest, kindest girl in the world. She blows me away.
She totally rocked it yesterday with her girlfriends.
Happy birthday baby girl xxxx
