A little list of the top 5 things to do in Glasgow as a new mum. Or dad. Get out, meet people, see stuff and eat cake. You don’t even need to be in Glasgow!
The little lady gets so upset when saying goodbye to the folks she loves. I do usually just distract her but this is an interesting alternative that will probably serve her better in the long run.
This resonated with me. Years ago, I used to not do stuff because I wasn’t happy with how I looked. Having a baby freed me from that quite a lot. Partly because I’m so aware that I’m her role model, and I really want to be a positive one in
I remember my mum trying to tell me what it’s like to have kids. She couldn’t, because I couldn’t imagine, understand or even nearly comprehend what it’s like to have a child. This is really lovely. It’s the best explanation I’ve read!
