My motherhood by Emma Collett-Naidoo
29 11 2013 • My Motherhood
My motherhood began with a kick to the stomach in the middle of yoga class. I thought it was a muscle twitching but nope it was my baby girl saying ‘Hi mama!’
It is overwhelming. I am the first of my close friends to embark on this journey and you don’t know what you don’t know until it happens.
It is an adventure. I never thought I’d be wiping meals off walls and hunting for my hidden jewellery. And don’t get me started on teething and tantrums.
It is watching her mimic me. She brushes her hair, plays with my make up brushes, rearranges my shoes and takes a quick glance in the mirror before leaving the bedroom.
It is gentle moments together. Our Eskimo kisses, long embraces in the morning and singing ‘Twinkle, twinkle little star’.
It is filled with colourful expression. Our home is filled with shrieks of laughter, glitter and handprints, and lots of dancing. We dance in the kitchen, in the bath, up and down the stairs.
My motherhood is a blessing, an endless joy, a lot of hard work and I manage to do it in heels (sometimes)!
Emma is mama to Stella, 14 months and blogs at The Glam Mummy.
