This is where those of us who love children can come to imbibe all the wonderful little details we observe about their world. Like what song makes them dance, their favourite toy, the best tricks for dinner at restaurants and the most amazing research and studies done in the field of child development. Please feel free to share your ideas or something curious you recently stumbled on. Very much looking forward to getting the conversation going.
The world of little citizens has always fascinated me, but never more so than when my baby was born. It felt like the world turned a page, suddenly everywhere I went people wanted to talk to me. The old woman in the post office who had never shared a smile before was overcome with joy when she saw me pushing a buggy with my baby of only a few weeks old.
Welcome to the club
Mothers and fathers everywhere looked at me in a new way. It was a wink wink nudge nudge kind of look. And it was mystifying, I felt like there was more solidarity on planet earth than I had ever known. The all-knowing look which I quickly adopted seemed to sum up, “I know how exhausted and exhilarated you are. Don't worry, you’re not alone”
The most wonderful thing about becoming a mum, aside from, well, becoming a mum; was making new friends and the feeling of belonging to a secret age-old society: the hair standing on end, frazzled, adoring parent set.
Feeding time became thinking time
Suddenly I found myself with baby on boob in the middle of the night with a million questions on my mind. And for the first time with five or, was it six? forty minute feeding sessions a day. And I don’t know how breastfeeding while walking works for some, but certainly for me that was a lot of sedentary time, sitting like I had never sat before. So what did I start to do? I managed pure unadulterated baby gossip the kind only a newborn mummy or possibly a really good grand mummy can understand.
A desire for a community of mummies online was born
This is the place where this website was born. I want to create a place online where like and unlike-minded people can come to discuss and pour over all things about parenthood. To share the funny, ridiculous and emotional rollercoaster of it all with people who care to listen. But most of all, to share the advice that has worked for you or against you and post tips that offer a moment of respite and solidarity for families around the world. Please feel included and drop us a line.
