I've come to realise that caring for a baby is an art, not a science.
I've been getting very stressed about a plus b not equalling c. It's hard not to feel like a failure when you do everything you think you're meant to and the results aren't there - but then it's not about results really. A baby isn't a science experiment.
So what is it about? It's about growing a family, and sometimes, just about getting through the day. It's about taking two steps forward, one step back. It's about marvelling at this little person, made in God's image. It's about poo and spew and sleepless nights - desperately wishing they were over whilst not wanting to let go of the precious moments.
It's about the best of times and the worst of times - all rolled into one!
