New normal

I remember life before 19 weeks ago when my baby arrived, but I admit it's slightly hazy. Life feels so different now, less rock'n'roll more radio 2 :)

Levi goes to bed between 6 and 7pm and after that I have an hour or so before the yawning begins and dreams of a cozy bed fill my mind. Realising that this was a new normal, made me think about what else had become 'normal' since I became a Mum.

It is 7.45pm on Saturday night and both Jeremy and I have been in PJ's for over an hour. This is not a one off lazy Saturday night, this is our new normal.

My new normal is being in bed before 9pm.

My new normal is choosing an outfit for the day based on what smells least like spit-up.

My new normal is sleeping no longer than 5 hours at a time.

My new normal is drinking hot beverages, lukewarm or tepid.

My new normal is washing the same load of laundry at least twice before I remember to put it in the dryer.

My new normal is speed showering.

My new normal is  a day filled with snuggles and kisses with my sweet baby.

My new normal is pretty amazing.
