I have to admit that I’ve never been SO BUSY! I’ve had doctors appointments, health visitor visits, post-natal group sessions, ‘Bubbles’ play sessions, ‘Baby Massage’ lessons, lunch dates out, lunch dates in, picnic dates, copious coffee dates, injection dates, baby weigh in sessions, baby register appointments, visits from friends and family. The list goes on. and on. and on.
My CEO was demanding but he has nothing on my son! I absolutely love my job as a PA (I say ‘love’ rather than using the past tense ‘loved’ as I WILL BE GOING BACK!). It’s the perfect role for me; no day is the same, you are thrown curve balls often, you have to think on your feet, take control, be assertive, generally do a million things at once. Thankfully I am quite good at it. Motherhood seems to be drawing on the same skill set only instead of booking flights, scheduling meetings and organising events I am dealing with sterilising, bottle making, changing nappies full of types of poo I never knew existed, juggling all of the appointments listed above and trying to be a wife also.
I never understood how busy a mum could be… until now.
Thankfully I am absolutely LOVING it all. I love being busy. Apart from learning early on not to cram too much into a day and making sure I leave time to be ‘at home’ to snuggle my little man, I am having the best time and am treasuring every minute.
