Making The World #BetterForBaby

Babies have an incredible effect on people. I’d consider myself to be quite hardened to it – 5 years of minimal sleep will do that to a gal – but even I go all gooey around newborns.

When I had Elfie I was determined that I wouldn’t change as a person. I knew some things would be different – I wouldn’t be able to go out on a whim, would be a bit thicker round the middle for a few months, might lose a bit of sleep and there’d be a new little person around the place, but essentially I was determined that life as I knew it would remain the same.
