The night it all began!

This is us, in oct 2003 what seem like so long ago, just some distant memories, in a pub called the King John in Hartlepool. It was a special night in more than one way, not only was it Paula's birthday but its the night that changed my life forever, although I didn't know that at the time, until a few weeks later when I peed on a stick and it went blue!

Then 27months later I took this picture!

The most wonderful thing that ever happened to me! Which God willing I am about to embark on again only this time it will be a new life, a new journey, my son.
Its amazing how this little thing can change you so much and until you have one of your own you can never imagine how much you can love one. I am a Nanny by profession and have loved the kids I have worked with, but nothing prepared me for the total shock having my own would bring. Its amazing how you can love someone that is so much hard work. Sleepless nights, endless nappies, sore breasts, labour! and everything else that goes with being a mum. Of course my favourite bit is all the snotty noses!
I am completely smitten and I don't care who knows it, my daughter is wonderful and I will love her forever.
This Christmas she should understand most of whats going on, so providing I don't go into labour early, this should be my best Christmas ever. Even though my Dad and my Nan wont be here to share it, I know that they live on through me, in my memories of them, and the silly things I say.(that they used to say) So Faith will know them and that puts a smile on my face.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! I wish you all peace and happiness.
God Bless

Youre right, it was soapy (and yes I mean soapy for anyone reading this comment - it isnt spelling error)

But also, nice. So few people are so pleased by something so pure. Most people are about the presents they get, how much they can drink and wh they can pull (shuffles feet and loks ashamedly at them).

I, selfishly, miss our night out prebaby. You were much more wild, crazy, drunk and loud Ok, you are still loud.

But you are a really great mum and it really suits you. I cannot now imagine you without kids so I will just shut up and appreciate the times we can get out for a drink, even if you are dying to get hme to your kids by half ten.

Love you babe. Will speak to you soon but have a great christmas and dont bug Stu for sex to much - you still have a couple of months to go.

As for the sex part if only you knew how uncomfortable I am right now you'd be begging for it!!!
Anyway it'll only work when he's ready to come out and I've been told boys are lazy...hang on I knew that am married .... mental note to self... dont expect him to help with housewrok like Faith does...anyway I too miss ours fun nights out, I was more crazy, wild etc and of course I'm still loud! But what I have no is far better than I could ever have dreamed of! and when you get back we'll go celebrate old style promise no 10:30 early nights!! Stu can get up with the kids miss you xxx

I read this, such a lovley thing to say, I hope once she is old enough to understand you let Faith read that. Although I have no inclination of having children and of staying child free for the rest of my life. I respect you and I am proud of you (and Stu) for bringing little people into the world and you are both doing a great job.
