For Tricia

This blog has issued a challenge to all the mothers who read Nathan's CFHusband blog, to make a list of bizarre things that kids do that would normally annoy you or you take for grated but for Tricia who hasn't been able to experience them yet it will be precious when she does. Even if you aren't doing the challenge go check out the other blogs that have because it's hilarious (when it doesn't happen to you)
I've only had 4 1/2 months so my list won't be long, but it will all be stuff my charming little girl has done lol

I can't wait for you to experience...

  • The first time Gwyneth manages to undo her nappy (diaper) and then wee all over her cot.
  • The first time you put Gwyneth in her cot after getting home from hospital and you get a pooey nappy explode all over the brand new WHITE quilt (do you see a theme here lol)
  • The first time you put Gwyneth on the floor to play while you eat breakfast and find her under the coffee table because she's slid herself backwards.
  • The first time you go to check on Gwyneth in the morning and can't find her because she's spun herself 90o and then rolled under her blankets (even though you only make the bottom 3rd of the cot like the midwives tell you).
  • The first time you leave her on the couch while you go and get a bottle and come back just in time to see her slide off the couch feet first, when she used to be happy to sit there and wait.
  • The first time Gwyneth giggles and the only way you can tell it's a laugh, because the only sounds she normally makes are cries, is that she's smiling when she does it.
  • The first time you discover just how easy it is to get more of those giggles.
  • The first time the lady at the shop tells you how beautiful your daughter is
  • The first time you pretend not to hear her crying so your husband will get up to her during the middle of the night. (of course i've never done this one lol)
  • The first time after months of handling Gwyneth like she's made of eggshells you realise she loves playing 'rough' - been tossed in the air, or hung by her ankles as you walk around the house.

I can't wait for you to experience every one of these moments and so many more because this is what it means to be a mummy...and every moment is glorious in its own special way.
My Challenge to all your blogging mummies...
If you are reading this and you are a mummy, I encourage you (for fun) to do something like this for Tricia on your blog. Tell her all the special, frustrating, wonderful moments that you hope she gets to experience just because she's a mummy now too.
