I’ve seen a lot of posts about a New Year New Me this past week, and so I’ve decided for me I'm going to give some thought to a 'New Year New MumMe'. If you’ve read my post on Mamazou.com about guilt, entitled 'Guilty Feelings Have No Rhythm' you will know that I feel guilty a lot and therefore I focus too much on what I’m not doing as opposed to what I am doing.

This week marked a major landmark in a parent and child’s life - the first birthday. My baby girl turned 1. I planned meticulously - the presents were wrapped, the balloons blown, and even her big brother had a little something to open (A little nod to my wonderful Mummy who used to do this for each of my siblings and I on a birthday so we felt included in the excitement of the present opening). This is the second time I am experiencing a baby turning 1 and each time has brought with it the same confused emotions.
One of the biggest adjustments for me since giving birth to my baby girl last year has been spending so little time with my eldest just the two of us. I can count on one hand the times we have done things together just us this past year. But recently I have crossed a major hurdle with my daughter, who seems to have passed a huge separation anxiety stage and is now better at being looked after by others, giving me the opportunity to spend some serious quality time with my little man.
