In which I transform from dunce to goddess. Theoretically.

Things I learnt today....

When leaving your baby on the bed while you have a shower, DONT leave a roll of toilet paper in arms reach.

Wow where did 2013 go?

It passed me by in a haze of pregnancy, sleepless nights, new born baby, sleepless nights, laundry, feeding and sleepless nights. It was an amazing year, my little boy was born at the beginning of June and he has bought us endless joy and giggles. I am constantly overwhelmed by the emotion I feel for this little person we created. Everything he does is exciting, interesting and just plain brilliant. He grins at me when I get him up in the morning, he eats everything we feed him, he goes to bed without complaining, he doesn't complain when he gets dragged round shops. He's just amazing. I LOVE him!!!

He is definitely a big part of my desire to become a domestic goddess. I want to be able to provide for him, to feed him healthy food, for him to live in a clean, happy, comfy home, for him to be happy, confident and make sensible choices. I want to read with him, play games with him, go to exciting places, see interesting stuff with him. I want to be Super Mum. That's easy, right?

I haven't made any New Year's resolutions since I was about 14 and pledged to stop biting my nails but I guess that this year would be a good time to decide to make a few changes, or to maintain some of the ones I made when the little man came along.

So I guess that this year I want to
  • ensure I make decisions based on what is best for him
  • continue to try to make fresh healthy meals for all of us
  • perfect at least 8 meals so that I don't fall into the category of women discussed in this Daily Mail article
I guess that will do!

Happy New Year everyone xxx
