It's so strange the way the world works! I've heard of so many instances where girls who love kids and couldn't wait to be mums get dealt the hardest cards.
Growing up, I was always the one playing with the kids in the family and I just loved it. I also had countless dolls, which it played with until high school and loved being a mum to them. My relatives always said how sad it was when they found out about our issues since they thought it was me who should be the one to have a whole tribe of kids. The only other one they've said that to was my mums cousin, who of course was the only other one in my family who had needed Ivf. She used to jump at the chance to change our nappies and bath us growing up and put ribbons in our hair. She also married a man with MFI and had to do many transfers to get their daughter.
Now that I have my daughter, I spend so much time playing silly little games with her. Whenever people see me with her, they say how they bet this is all I do all day
I hear so many people who say things like how they like going to work as it gives them time away from the kids and how actual work is easier than being a housewife as gives you a break and adult conversation. I've been back at work 2 days a week, these past few months while my parents are available to watch her and I go to work and smile on the outside but on the inside I'm counting down the hours til I get to see my baby again and miss her like crazy! Sometimes I literally dream of walking out of there so I can stay at home forever and I don't even hate my job. I just hate leaving her. It's only temporary though as once #2 comes along I plan to have a lot longer off and just working a bit now to set us up better for that.
