It has happened. At some point during the past 19 months, I drank the Kool Aid. I walked straight into that Friendship circle, held hands with the sisters and said goodbye to my old life. The Motherhood has claimed me.
When I first fell pregnant, I remember thinking I’d be such a cool mum. Not like all those other sad women who let themselves go and talk about their kids non-stop. I’d keep on top of current affairs and still go out drinking and still wear gorgeous things. I thought I’d be exactly the same person (yeah, ok, shut up. You thought exactly the same thing).
I was wrong.
I am weak. I’m a follower. I’m a proper mum and I don’t want to go back. Tell my family this is where I want to be….
