Do you ever look at your little ones and think 'wow, I grew that!'?

Sometimes I find myself staring at my kids in disbelief that these little individuals began their lives inside me! I'm quickly reminded just how amazing that is and how incredibly fortunate and lucky I am.

You ladies ever pause and think the same? It's quite overwhelming when you really think about it!

Still do, and they're in their 20's. there have been time, however, I've looked any thought 'what the fuck did I do'. grin

Oh yes!
Especially when they turn out to be good at stuff I am rubbish at.

I have out of body experiences when I look at her and cannot believe I have made, and am utterly responsible for, this incredible, witty, bright ray of sunshine.

It can be crippling actually and I have days when I think it is inevitable that all that joy will have to end. Thankfully not that often

Everyday! DD is only 9mo, I can't quite believe me and DH made her and that she's here - Sat on the floor waiting for her milk to cool blowing raspberries at pointless!

What, like ever fucking MINUTE?

I have had 4 pregnancies, 3 of which ended in varying degrees of trauma.... the third one did too, but it was DD coming out faster than a speeding bullet..

She's now trying to blow me down like the 3 little pigs. She was worth every bloody bit of it and has given us so much joy and grey hairs for the last 3 years

Mine are all grown up and vary in height from 5' 7" to 6'4", I'm only a titch so I often think where the hell did they come from?

I do! Sometimes I look at her and just don't know how I was a part of making such a beautiful, funny, happy little girl. Can get quite emotional if I'm not careful, I don't want to be one of those gushing mums when she's older but nothing moves me quite like it. I'm so proud of her and myself and DP

It's mind blowing how they basically came out of a tiny cell, it's even more amazing for me as I am adopted so seeing myself in them is strange.

Yes, just tonight at the dinner table. I was looking at ds's ear and thought - I grew that!
