Baby grows. And grows. And amongst all the wonderful reasons to be excited and happy as baby grows, one sad thought recurs to me; it'll also be the end of an era.
By the time baby comes there will have been 20 months of Euna and I on our own. Of course Steve is here on weekends and other people drop by. But the two constants are us, Euna and Mummy.
Thing is we're a team. For as long as I've been on this Mummy-train, she's been there with me. Everything I've learnt about being a Mum has been with her. That accounts for the wonderful, the beautiful, the exhausting, the life-changing, the frustrating, the fun, the bits when I didn't want it to end and the bits when I wondered would they ever end?! She's been my muse, my guinea pig, my first baby love, my crash test dummy, my lead product tester and my chief in charge of parenting quality control. She's been it all.
Team Euna and Mummy we are. Though this duo is soon to change. And whilst this makes me happy in so many ways and there are so many wonderful things to come from the upgrade to a trio... There is part of me that is sad to see the back of so much exclusive Euna and Mummy time.
At this point in a post I like to kind of round things up positively. Fact is there is a sadness here, be it immensely outweighed by so much happiness to come, but there is an ending approaching to what has been the most wonderful time of my life. Truly. I don't regret the end, not a bit, I simply recognise it is to end and it was wonderful.
Thank you Euna, you've been beautiful. xxx
