If you're in the throes of baby stage, here's a list of things you'll miss when its over
- Smell. All babies smell amazing, and their skin is so soft and wrinkly. The little fingers and tiny nails are so cute, they really are beautiful pieces of perfection.
- Cuddles and kisses. New-borns will lay happily in your arms and be cuddled and kissed, lucky for them as they are just so cute! As they get older it requires a rugby tackle to get my nippers and hold down their wriggly selves while I smother them with kisses!
- Sleeping on my chest. A new born is like a little koala bear clinging onto you, nothing makes you feel more loved then that.
- Buggy. It was so handy having a buggy with room for groceries and other retail bits (that were very important). Some even had little drink holders for my Latte, and you knew where your baby was all the time, not like those little toddlers who love nothing more than gallivanting.
- Nap times. The days when your baby would go for a few hours shut eye so I could catch up on the tv ahem I mean cleaning. Now there is no nap time, sure I struggle to get them to bed at all.
- Sounds they make. Babies and their little gurgling noises and suckling when looking for food, bless them.
- Funny faces. I remember getting so excited when I thought my baby had smiled but it was just a burp, but it was funny and exciting. As the years go by your kids will continue to make funny faces, this time its usually because you have suggested that they clean their room or eat some veggies.
- Baby clothes. They were so small and had miniature versions of everything we wear and I loved it! I spent hours deciding on outfits and picking accessories, but now well the kids pick their own clothes.
- An excuse not to have an immaculate house. When you have a small baby no one judges you for having a tip of a house in fact they discourage you from over doing it. However as the kids get older you should be on top of it all, I for one am not and am sticking to my mantra of a messy house is a happy one.
