There hasn’t been much time as of late to post a blog, let alone the pictures I keep promising everyone.
On January 26th, my husband and I, along with our family and friends, celebrated the birth of our baby boy. It was an emotional rollercoaster that spanned nearly 17 hours, and resulted in an emergency c-section.
Since that, we have been spending every minute with our son. It is in fact, constant. And when I chose the name Constant Mummy to brand my blog and all the social media pieces that tie into it (Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook), it wasn’t just a spin-off of my Constant Baker blog, because I knew the transition to motherhood would be life altering and automatically become a constant.
I have joked with friends that I am in the bubble, not even aware that it was SuperBowl week. This space that doesn’t let the usual details of life penetrate it (work, shopping, volunteering, finances, yes, even social media), means that I, along with my husband, are 100% devoted to the little man in our arms.
Sure I take occasional breaks (like this one), to catch up on a few things here and there, but that previous mentality that would keep me glued to a task for hours has faded. Whether it’s feeding, changing, dressing or simply cuddling with my boys, that’s the constant in my life.
