Is it weird?

Is it weird that if I think Jaspers hungry I put my nose to his mouth to see if he’ll suck it?

How about that I like to lick his head and rub my cheek on his hair because his hair is so silky and soft?

One of my favourite things to do is snuffle my nose in the creases of his neck like a hedgehog … is that normal?

Is it weird that I’d eat his poo? Not on a normal day but if it was a dare I’d have no qualms doing it – his poo is as perfect as him!

Does it make me strange because I wipe his bogies and his dribble on my trousers with no second thoughts?

How about the fact that I pick his nose and bite his fingernails?

I’m thinking it’s pretty normal to have a nickname for your baby but to call Jasper Rabbit, Monsieur Squishy Pants, Mr Squish, Poppet, Grumpy face and Squidge – is that normal or am I going to have one confused baby boy?

Is it weird that I kind of like that 3 people have thought Jasper was a girl?

Is it weird that I’ve dreamt about him every night since he’s been born? Some nice dreams, but most ones where I worry about him.

I put Jasper in his swinging chair in the bathroom while I have a shower or bath so I can see him all of the time … that’s normal right?

I’m hoping this is normal, but is it weird that I hear him crying when I’m in the shower, hoovering or have music on even though I know that he’s not crying?

Jasper pooped on me and my only reaction was to smile and love him even more … that can’t be normal can it?

There have been so many occasions since becoming a mummy that I think make me a little bit weird but they also make me feel extremely happy, proud and grateful for a perfect little Mr Squishy!

Please tell me that being weird is normal? I’d love to hear some of the ways that mummyhood has made you weird … I need to feel a little more normal lol

 

Thanks for reading xxx

    Funny post! There really isn’t much that can gross out a parent after they’ve had a baby, is there? I don’t even think I have a gag reflex anymore!

      I don’t know how they smell so nice, especially as I’m still only using water on Rabbit except last night I used some organic shampoo on him! xx

    Totally normal! I liked the smell of both my babies poo…smelt like biscuits. Weird but true. Didn’t once they started solids…! Lovely that you’re in a haze of love. X

      Haha I can relate to biscuits, Rabbit’s poo is definitely sweet smelling! I’ll make the most of it before he starts on solids lol

    That is the sweetest 🙂

    I often hear Scarlett crying when I’m in the shower but she never is! Mothers instincts.

      It’s creepy isn’t it, even if I’m carrying him while hoovering I still hear it!
