The most surprising thing about motherhood
At today's ABA (breasting association) meeting the icebreaker question was 'what have you found the most surprising thing about motherhood?' In my head I thought 'That Max is alive, breathing, crying, feeding, growing' but I didn't say that - it's not something that they would have understood. So I went with 'that babies can be so exhausted and still not go to sleep' which has been surprising. It's times like that I just feel different to all the other new Mums. But there were other Mums there with babies similar ages and it was lovely to talk about all the normal things - how much they were sleeping, feeding, and day sleeps not really going well.
