Today, Sunday 12th of May 2019, is Mothers' Day in Australia.
April was a rather splendid month to be alive. Here's what has made me laugh and put a smile on my face...
When going through my extreme nesting phase, I had the sudden urge to pack my hospital bag at 32 weeks and put it near our front door. Every day until I gave birth, my hospital suitcase would serve as a reminder of what was going to happen in the near future, how I shouldn’t do the ‘typical Eliza’ thing and pack everything at the last minute as I no doubt would’ve forgotten something important.
Over the past two or so months, I’ve developed a morning and evening routine that fits in nicely between antenatal appointments and the unrelenting urge to deep clean and ‘nest’.
Whilst scouring the internet for that secret parental manual, I started heavily thinking upon the almost daily conversations I had been having with my pregnant cousin and wrote a series of blog posts dedicated to first-time expecting parents.
It is official. You are not only about to welcome a little human into your family and world, but you have found yourself stumbling across this post. With various thoughts, horror stories told from your next door neighbour, friends and family members about how her baby shower ended up in literal flames and the fire…
As a means of helping you become less stressed about what to buy regarding very tiny and adorable onesies and any other important things you might need, I have written a newborn checklist for any first time expectant parent.
