I'm a Mum.
Just writing that makes my eyes fill up with tears.
I read a quote the other day that said becoming a parent was like being born again.. and I totally get it. This little person appears and your emotions are literally opened up. You always thought that they were open.. you've always felt love and pain, joy, sadness.. but you now realise that it was literally the tip of the iceberg.. a slightly muffled version.. a protected version in some ways. Looking back, in a way.. it felt so safe..
Bloody hell I'm a Mum.
I don't think I've ever felt more vulnerable and more bullet proof all at the same time..
Frank Smyth decided to take his own sweet time to join the party but me and his Dad are absolutely over the moon he's chosen us to hang out with.. Born on the 27th January 2016 at 22:23... all 8lbs 3 of pure chub and cuteness. We're totally smitten..
