5 things magical


When you become a parent your whole life changes and suddenly you have a little baby to look after who relies on you for their every need. It can be tough some times, but there are a few things that I think make being a parent truly magical:

1. You made your baby. This is something that I really struggle to get my head around sometimes! I know that I was pregnant for 9 months and then gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, but I still can't believe that Jono and I made him! We made a real living person, and that has got to be the most magical thing of all!

2. Your baby depends on you. From the word go you have to look after your little baby who relies on you for everything. I remember when we left the hospital with Zach we couldn't believe they trusted us to keep him alive! But straight away you know what to do, and that feeling that you are needed so much by your baby is just amazing.

3. You get to watch your baby develop. I think that being able to watch your baby grow each day from when they're a tiny newborn is so special. Each day your baby changes a little bit and you get to be with them every step of the way as they learn new things.

4. The love you have for your baby. It is like nothing else, and I don't know if I can even put it into words. It is a deep and raw feeling that overwhelms you, and you realise that you would do anything you can to keep your baby safe.

5. You realise what your parents went through with you. Suddenly you understand it all - the love your parents have for you but also all the sleepless nights and selfless deads which they must have done just as you are doing for your own baby now. I swear I didn't realise just how much my parents did for me until I had Zach!

Do you think that being a parent is magical too?

  3. Being a parent is so magical, isn't it? Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the huge list of things I need to do, that I forget to sit back and think about things like this. Number 1 is perfect, I'm exactly the same. Sometimes I really struggle to comprehend that I MADE a small person! Ray xx #thelist
