Hearts On Sleeves
There’s something about pregnancy that bonds women everywhere; we congratulate one another and commiserate with one another – sharing our experiences of morning sickness, nausea, being kicked in the ribs and all the rest that occurs during the “glowing” months.
Even once you’ve left the pregnancy stage behind you, reminiscing can be fun…and a good laugh! Once you’re through the rough bits, there’s a lot to be nostalgic about – especially as you get to know and love the child that came from it.
I must admit when I was pregnant with Bliss a lot of the books out there just weren’t my cup of tea. I wish I’d had Kellie O’Briens new book around to read (and my iPad to read it on, of course!).
Kellie’s newly recently released an ebook, takes you through her first pregnancy, with beautiful daughter Ella and then her first year as a Mum.
One of my favourite lines is this “When you start rabbiting on to the telemarketer about the amount of nappies you go through in one day and he actually hangs up on you, you know you’re in need of some serious help.”
Not because I could relate or anything *hangs head*.
But tell me this, which mother amongst us can’t relate to this experience of a play date? Play dates allow you to waste away (ahem, spend) an afternoon with a friend and claim interaction with others is in the best interests of your child’s mental and physical development. Her latest play date? OK, so she slept the whole time.
At this point I’ll stop quoting from the book and suggest you just go and get yourself a copy. This ebook is the perfect gift for yourself, or an expectant mum you know – and a wonderful way to support the sisterhood!
What makes you laugh and go “ah-ha!” when it comes to books about motherhood and pregnancy?
