Anyone who has had children will know exactly what I mean when I say completely different things excite you once you’ve had a baby. The first month of their life you are just delighted if you get five minutes to shower and as they get bigger you are just as happy when you realise you remember to put the extra nappies in the changing bag.
Now Amelia is bigger and we have our own flat there are bigger but more ‘boring’ things that excite me. Take today for example. Me and Amelia went out on our usual walk to the shops and I found a piece of kitchen equipment I had wanted for ages. A steamer.
I know. It’s funny. I’m 21 and excited about buying myself a steamer. But I love cooking for my little family. I walked back with it balanced on Amelia’s pushchair with a smile on my face. No doubt when Rob sees it he will laugh.
When I was little my Nan always made bacon pudding in her steamer, bacon and stuffing wrapped in a suet pastry. I can’t wait to try and make my own vegetarian version this evening.
What ‘mum’ things have you got excited about?
