Win a £250 gift card at our Post Office Money Twitter party!
What's been the biggest surprise about parenthood? Tell us at our #FamilyMoments Twitter party on Wednesday 14 October 1-2pm
We all know that life changes irrevocably when you have a baby - lazy lie-ins are swapped for sleepless nights, bodily functions become a hot topic of conversation and CBeebies is welcomed as a permanent resident to the home.
But there are some things about becoming a parent that nothing can prepare you for - and we'd love to hear all about what you found to be the biggest surprise about parenthood. Perhaps you were amazed by the love you felt for your baby, caught off-guard by how parenting changed your outlook on the world - or simply flabbergasted by how quickly your laundry pile mounted.
Do join @MumsnetBloggers and @PostOffice to tell us all about it on 14 October 1-2pm - and see if anywhere else shares your shock! Use the hashtag #FamilyMoments and you'll automatically be entered into a draw to win a £250 One4All gift card.
While you can't be prepared for everything life throws your way, it's reassuring to know you're protected should something happen - and Post Office Money understand this becomes even more important when you have children. That's why they're offering young families one year's free life insurance.
Parents with children under four years old can take advantage of free life cover for 12 months, and both parents can be covered for up to £15,000 each if you both apply for separate policies.
