Here it is. The truth.

‘If you truly love having babies, then you don’t care about the morning sickness’.

In all honestly, I didn’t love having babies.
So I guess that’s why I did care about the morning sickness 🙂 I had it quite severely, for three months, during both pregnancies.

What I do love though, is that my eldest ‘baby’ is now a 9 year old who went to soccer training with her friend by herself. And what I also do love, is that my youngest 4 year old is playing with her friend, while I read a book on the terrace on a for Dutch standards unusually warm autumn day.

And I do love both of them tremendously.

I’m just not a baby person. I know that. Does that make me a bad mother?
Probably not. I’m the type of mother just as I am; a good enough mum.

This sentence in Big Magic made me chuckle though.


Get in my tribe! You’ll get my free guid ‘Self Care if you don’t have time’

Oh yeah, give me that guide!
