Top 10 Most Surreal Mummy Moments

A post which will be submitted for WADS Wives and Daughters Mummy Bloggers Carnival . The topic being your top 10 most surreal Mummy moments .

Hmmmm... This really got me thinking what are most surreal moments since becoming a Mummy?

Number One would have to be no longer being pregnant . Those 9 month's were like the longest 9 month's of my life. And then it just took 5 short hours of my life for Oli to come into the world. Now that's definitely the most surreal moment of my Mummy life.

How quick my bump went after giving birth is at
Number Two , as soon as he popped out it just disappeared into thin air. (Yes you can hate me!)

Number Three is my boobs .. Woah. Wish the boys , that at school called me all the flat-chested names under the sun could see them now!

Number Four is the amount of toys that just magically appear and grow as fast as Oli does. Our living room went from a big empty space to a little space with toys , tables and ride on's everywhere.

Leaving Oli for the first time is my
Number Five , I felt like I had lost something all night - I kept checking my pockets & my purse but it wasn't something I had lost , it was just that feeling of not having Oli close to me.

Meeting other Mummy's would have to be
Number Six , the friendships I have created with these kinda Women are different to the friendships I have with other Women - I have one major thing in common with these Women.

Following on from that at
Number Seven is Blogging . Being able to share my thoughts & feelings to other Mummy's that are experiencing the same things and can share feedback is amazing. Being able to read other Mummy Blogs is just as fantastic , I love being part of the Mummy Blogging community.

Number Eight is how quickly you become a expert at changing a nappy in seconds , juggling a thousand things in your hand at once , Cbeebies , Nappy rash cream , weaning , breast & bottle feeding .. The list could go on & on...

Number Nine is milestones , being able to experience and watch all of Oli's firsts have been great . Being there to watch him roll over for the first time , crawl , babble and even now watching him learn to walk... It's simply breathtaking!!

Lastly at
Number Ten is the Love , The unconditional love you feel for this new person in your life. You fall in love with your partners but this Love starts from the moment you find out your pregnant , can even start from the moment you decide to try for a baby. And it continues to grow and grow each day you hold your child in your arms and look into those forever childlike eyes. The Love I have for Oli is the greatest kind of love that is in this world.

    when I was young I was one of those girls who always said NO WAY!! I AM NEVER HAVING KIDS!! (I probably screamed it, just like I did there in all caps) but...now I can't imagine my world without my son in it. Great list.

    I can so relate to #5. I can't even go to the grocery store by myself without feeling a little bit lost. And I talk to myself (usually I talk to the kids), too!
