Someone needs me...

I read this post on Facebook this week, it isn't the first time I have seen it but I seem to read it every time it pops up because it s such a nice read and written so well. It is also a good reminder why we have to do the things we do...


If you haven't read the post 'Mommy, Somebody Needs You' by Megan Morton then when you get a spare few minutes you really should read it.

It is a gentle reminder that although we have disturbed sleep, night feeds, tears, moans and whinges that it is because they needs us, not just because they can. And the sad bit... it wont last forever. Some day our babies won't need us for cuddles, kisses and to be held close because they will be all grown up! Daisy will still have cuddles if she likes it or not as she grows up, I will be that embarrassing mum that still snuggles their "baby" girl at 40 years old!!

When you become a mum for the first time I think it can be quite daunting how much a little person really can rely on you, and its down to you to ensure they grow healthy and strong and are set up to take on the world when they need to. But it soon becomes the norm and we wouldn't want it any other way. I don't find myself desperately trying to find babysitters to have a few hours peace, I actually find myself wanting every hour I can with her. More than likely because I am working and have to take the chance to be one on one when I can, and well, why not. That doesn't mean that there will be times when I will be calling super nanny's to the rescue though!

Have you read anything similar or have any little reminders that you like to think of?

Lots of love,

  1. I keep thinking of this at the moment, Amelia's lost the plot with her sleep so is up and down and wanting to sleep with me. I have to remember that in a few years she won't want to cuddle me to fall asleep and that I should treasure these 4am snuggles...(maybe ha!!)xx

  4. On nights like tonight when I've had hard time getting Little Miss Vista to bed I think 'THANK GOD' when she finally nods off... however I find myself picking her up again at some point before I go to bed myself for a sneaky cuddle and to tell her that I love her again.
    Great post highlighting something important xx
