Things I said I wouldn't do as a mum but do...

Hello, hello, hello!
Once again, I have been neglecting my blog. Although I do get some free time during the day, I don't always have the motivation to achieve much else. So blogging ends up falling down in my 'to-do' list.

Anyway, I thought I would make a post on some of the things that I said I wouldn't say or do as a mum (there are a few!).

Poo, poo and more poo

Let's be honest, no-one really likes talking about bowel movements, but it seems that since becoming a mum, Edith's poos have become quite the topic for conversation. What's more, is that I've become quite proud of the fact that her poos are regular and 'normal' for a breastfed baby.

In terms of 'normal', I didn't know that breastfed and bottle fed babies have different types of poo...The fact that this is now interesting to me says it all really.

Doll face

I said, when I was pregnant, that I would do my make up everyday. Do I do that now? Absolutely not. As much as I feel 'myself' when I put my face on, I don't always get the time to do it, and I don't always leave the house, so I feel there's no point in wasting good foundation! 

If I'm honest, my skin has massively cleared up since Edith has been born, which I'm so thankful about. If you've read one of my previous posts, you would have seen that I had particularly bad acne during pregnancy. It's just something I've always suffered with. So, to have clearer skin now, especially when I don't have make up on all of the time, is a bonus!  

Rocking the 'mum bun'

Before having Edith, I would often curl or straighten my hair as part of my beautifying regime, but you guessed it, I don't always get the time. So, as much as I didn't enjoy putting my hair up, the mum bun has become my new norm. Whipping my hair up is certainly easier than it falling in my eyes whilst trying to feed!


I was told, when I was pregnant, that I should make the effort toleave the house everyday, at least for a short walk. In theory, that sounds great, however, in reality, there are days where leaving the house is the last thing on my mind. Sometimes, a good pyjama day is exactly what I need.


It's laughable the amount of times that I've ended up with sick down myself, Not that it bothers me, but I remember being so naive to believe that I would change my clothes after being vomited on. Don't get me wrong, there have been times where I couldn't contain the amount of sick, so of course, I needed to change, but for the most part, it's just a bit of sick. 

You could say that I've embraced my new role, and I certainly have, All of the poo and sick in the world couldn't make me think otherwise.

Are there any things that you do or don't do that you said you would or wouldn't when you became a mum?

Thanks, lovelies.
