Don’t get me wrong. I love my daughter to the moon and back, and would happily die for her if it came to it. But being a stay at home mom is hard work, even though for me this is just for the duration of my maternity leave. I will be going back to work in October and I am really looking forward to it. However, for the time being whenever I get the chance, once in a while, to go out and be an adult – I love it.
Just because I had a baby my passions didn’t die! I love to go out and meet new people and have interesting conversations just as much as I did before. That hasn’t changed at all! But I must admit, something has changed. As instead of drunken midnight texts to my boyfriend or my best friend, or silly status updates on Favebook…now the reason I take out the phone when I am out is to secretly look at a cute picture of my baby, and tell myself how lucky I am to have her in my life!
Yes, I love my baby but I also love myself, I still love wine & ciocolate & I still have plenty to say that doesnt involved my baby…despite the fact she pops into my head probably every 10th second.
So I want to say thank you for a fun night out to my good friend Ondina, who also gets the credit for the awesome photo!
Do you like spending time away from your baby?
