You know you're a second time mummy when...

You dare to leave the house without the great big baby bag and just pop a nappy and a couple of wipes in your handbag

You have no idea where the baby books are

Someone says your tea is getting cold and you say that's how you take it now

There is no piece of advice you resent more than 'sleep when the baby sleeps'. Obviously you've tried but that other small person you're in charge of will insist on waking you to be fed

You don't do baby shoes

A successful shopping trip is returning from the supermarket with both babies not crying. And a packet of chocolate digestives

A successful day is not finishing all of the chocolate digestives (oh no hang on, is that unsuccessful?!)

Your new months magazine subscription arrives and you realise that you've not opened last months yet

You cherish those cuddles with your baby all the more because you know that this stage will be over all too soon

You find this half written blog post in your phone notes six months after you started it...

Beautiful but redundant baby shoes

  2. I have an only child so I never experienced this but it was an entertaining read all the same! I especially liked the last line... ;)

    1. Thank you. I am impressed, the chocolate digestive thing may have rolled over from when I only had one! ;)

  3. I think eating a whole packet of chocolate digestives is a notable achievement - completing anything is good, right? I only have one too, but this really made me smile :)

  4. This is so true! Especially the part about the tea - I usually don't take my first sip till it's been in the microwave twice!

    (ps ... sorry about previous comment, old account published for some reason!)

    1. This made me laugh, I always used to microwave mine twice too, then I just gave up!

  5. Four weeks into baby number two and I agree wholeheartedly. Other than the tea. I can't drink cold tea, but I have started to drink twice-microwaved tea!

    1. Yes, it's not worth drinking if not microwaved twice! ;) x
