There are bad days. Bad days involve little sleep and a lot of screamings (of which a percentage is generated by me, a few hours in). On bad days I get so frustrated I end up punching sofa cushions and chanting things like: "Why do you hate me, why?" and telling my pre-verbal baby how cross I feel.

And there are the good days. Days that involve long naps, and gurgling, and cuddling on the sofa with one sleepy warm baby and three zonked out purry cats, watching films I'd recorded earlier. Sometimes if the baby feels sociable afterwards we look together at all the bright colours in HEAT magazine. There are even days when the baby is awake and content to suck on his hand in his Moses basket long enough for me to post to LJ.

Although each bad day feels like a rite of passage in which a stick is forcefully applied to one's head, the good days are so golden that I want to stretch them out forever.

Yeah, tell it how it is. Tales from the land of the hormonal rollercoaster. Where I also live.

What? There's lots of nipples. Babies like nipples.

you're thinking of Front or the like, surely? Heat's just full of tits.

Not the Express, as John Cooper Clarke points out:

Margaret Thatcher is stunning, yes
But you'll never get a a nipple in the Daily Express.


Anyway, boo to the bad days, N.

For every day of "What the *&%(& have we done?", there's five of "I've never been happier in my life". And, believe it or not, there may be "Z, I want another one".

Babies love to be read to, and love glossy pictures. It doesn't matter if it's Clifford The Big Red Dog, or babes. They don't know the difference.

Very true. Although thanks to my history of depression the former have more of an ability to stick in my mind. But thankfully the good days far outweigh the bad so they're not sticking in my mind for long. :)

I think I might like a little baby of my own now.

Babies are great. Especially if you can fast forward through the first three weeks of their lives. :D
