Sibling rivalry is a killer, the middle two especially just do not stop fighting…..ever!
I was an only child so didn’t really get the memo that kids, especially siblings, really can be vicious little wolves that hunt in packs, snarling and showing their teeth with the hair in the back of their necks prickling up as they circle their prey….
Looking back on this photo brought back so many memories of those first few months as a mother, the fear, the love and the excruciating pain I went through every single feed.
I was told breastfeeding was going to be the most natural thing a mother could do for her baby.
It did not come naturally to me.
Trigger warning sexual abuse mentioned*
The first time a man took my power away I was just 7 years old, he was someone I loved and trusted and looked up to.
But he is just a boy.
He has his whole life ahead of him.
He deserves another chance at life.
He went on to abuse many other children including his own and suspected of killing his newborn baby, they gave him that chance!
Mum….where’s the baby?
When miss Amarlie was born I was prepared to have PND, I was prepared to suffer like I had done with the 3 older girls and I was terrified but I was determined to enjoy this Bub and mental health plans were put into place.
I was older and more experienced and I knew that I couldn’t wait until she was born before getting professional help so I contacted CAHMS and started seeing them as soon as I found out I was pregnant.
Pregnancy was just one big shituation!
We done a thing, We cancelled Easter Day this year….
