Baby and me: What our outings usually entail, and how simpler my mornings used to be before cute baby boy in my life




This is a first instalment of a pre-motherhood and post-motherhood comic series....!
Today I am posting about my mornigs and outings....as my outings are so much different now! And here is a summary of just a few differences....
 
1.  I used to have time to get prepared before leaving. I used to have time to coordinate my bag with my shoes for heaven sakes! That’s how much time I used to have... And I used to have a wardrobe with clean clothes! With baby in my life it’s not uncommon to raid the laundry in search of a relatively clean t-shirt... I mean what´s wrong with a little spat in the shirt? The scarf will cover it (read more here).


2. Before baby, leaving the house just meant grab keys, mobile, and that was it! Now I have a huge checklist, all to do with baby related items... And not mentioning that baby sometimes just needs a nappy change right before leaving. No matter what the time of the day is....
But the toys, these are really important. Really, you don´t want a bored baby in the bus... At least 3 favourite toys need to be in hand... And may be extendable to your watch. And your mobile. And your scarf. And of course, not forgetting your hands.


3. Oh how simpler it used to be, walk to a bus stop. How you could use your time! Texting, making calls, the possibilities were endless... You could just enjoy the landscape. With baby, I am always doing something. Either clean his nose, or help with the water cup. Or catch toys. At least 124 times on the way there. Or catch the odd sock. Or the baby cup.  


4. And then you finally reached your destination. Our outings during the week generally end up in baby’s nursery, and then I go to work. Before it was just work. Now work time has a whole new meaning... Its also when I am just on my own. And not needing to do anything baby related. Its relax time/work time... 


But hey! I have the cutest baby in my life! And that makes it all worth it!
How about you, does your baby makes you pick up something 245 times on your walks?
How did you like the series idea? Let me know your thoughts, I would love to hear from you!

  1. I love the series idea! Really made me chuckle!
    My baby is a toddler - nearly pre schooler now and i am still picking up after her! She still wants my stuff rather than her own toys and everywhere takes forever to get to!

    1. I am so happy that you enjoyed it! So I am guessing that my picking up things task will be ongoing then! LOL I am thinking about making this a weekly series. It’s not that I don’t have enough inspiration, just not the time to draw and write as a daily series ;). So make sure to pop by often! I would delighted to hear from you again! x

  2. Totally relate to this, toddler wants me to hold and lug him and he's so heavy and leaving the house can take forever! #blowyourownbloghorn x

  3. Haha I love this! It's so true, love the little drawings too. It is so much different to how our mornings used to be! I honestly sometimes wonder what I did with my time before I had my girls!
