7.27pm: Marks the point at which our little man has now lived longer on the outside of the womb, than the time spent inside the womb.
Which officially makes us…
He’s as much mine as he is your’s now, Mumma. (Don’t try to defeat my logic, it will only end in tears for all us…and by ‘us’, I mean…me).
You’ve spent 41 weeks and 4 days with him on the inside and I’ve spent 41 weeks and 4 days on the outside. I know you were there too…tut-tut. Hush, my love….AND SLEEP! (I’m having a moment).
So, for you little man, it’s like going to bed at 9:30pm instead of 6:00pm. It’s a whole new world opening up before your outstretched arms…“Wow, what happens now? I’ve never been out this long.”
I can only tell you this, it all gets so much better from here. A whole world of experiences to gather up, grab hold of and venture out into.
So many things to look forward to like walking, running, bikes, girls, school, jobs, rent, cars, bills, university, experimentation, proper jobs, proper girls, improper decisions, fun, family…the list goes on!
But one thing at a time, young man. Don’t be in a hurry to grow up.
We’ll discuss your rent, next week.
