Gone in the blink of

a baby blue eye

that initial fear

filled micro moment

of awkwardness

new motherhood

sighs sighed, milks

flowing and guess

what, babies cry ..

Isn’t that the way,

the text books say

it should, always be ..

Well listen folks

and hard, between

the sleep deprived


and let’s not forget

Someone really needs

        What empathy you behold truly, being a new mum is the most crazy experience a women can ever have, I've done it so I can safely say this, emotions and hormones. I know she is your beloved daughter but you got inside her mind and a few million other women too. You always amaze me But this is out of extraordinary dear Nev. Kudos on so many levels. Sending big hugs and loads of love to you all from Italy ๐Ÿ’–

                    Once asked a woman I was close to what birthing was like (what a thought - since it was postcoital) She replied it was like shitting a watermelon... an image I've never quite been able to forget.

                    Words flow while you seem all focused on your daughter with empathy all the way-no way to know exactly how sheโ€™ll feel from each moment of this miraculous challenge, but it seems like you are mastering the art of fatherhoodโ€ฆ

                    • Neville

                      I got the hang of fatherhood a long time ago .. its this grandfatherhood that is so new to me ๐Ÿ™‚
