Things I Miss


There are very few things I miss about my life pre-baby. I love being a mom, even the lack of sleep is bearable (just). I do, however, miss two things. Both of them are very shallow, so forgive me for a few shallow moments wallowing in self pity.
Firstly I miss movies. Stupid I know but I LOVE movies. Shaun and I used to go to movies just about every Friday night. I’m quite happy with popcorn & cherry slush for dinner and I’ll watch any movie purely for the sake of going to movies. So I really miss that. Last week I went to see Breaking Dawn. I went alone and loved it. Cried constantly since I’m a ridiculously emotional mommy, and sent a zillion smss to Shaun making sure Lily was ok. Obviously she was perfectly fine and don’t think she even noticed I was gone!

Secondly, and more importantly, I miss my beautiful boobs. I’ve never been thin or drop dead gorgeous but I have always had spectacular boobs. They were gorgeous! And now have been destroyed one suck at a time by this gorgeous little monster. They are now two lumpy deflated saggy granny boobs! I know that one day plastic surgery will help me, but in the mean time its really depressing me.

Other than this, I love being a mom! I love picking my Lily up out of her cot and getting a huge smile in return. I love it how she smiles and kicks the whole way through her bath and I even love the temper tantrum she throws every single night when I dress her for bed. I love how she goes goooo and smiles and kicks excitedly when I talk to her. I love how she has learnt to roll over and looks shocked every time she does it. I love how she talks to the trees and flowers with me when we go for walks and I love love love how she loves me so much. She loves me as much as I love her and its just wonderful.


About ournextbigadventure

After a few years of travelling around and itchy feet, my husband and I have embarked on our greatest adventure yet...parenthood! We have been blessed with a beautiful little girl named Lily Sage. Now everyday is filled not with questions of "where to next?" but with baby smiles, hiccups and milky breaths.

  1. Don’t feel guilty over the things you have missed. It is completely normal. I still need to go and see Breaking Dawn. On the up side there will be a whole bunch of things you never found entertaining or special pre-baby!

    On the boob matter, wish I can remember my pre and post boobs with baby #1. Oli has not been interested in breast feeding, he didn’t mind my milk, just wasn’t latching!
