There should be some kind of realistic planned parenthood checklist before you decide if parenthood is right for you.
Forget financial stability, a roof over your head.
Are you willing to never sleep properly again.
Did you enjoy your old waistline.
Do you mind having eye bags that match your eye shadow.
Are you willing to always share your food and hide behind kitchen counters when you want to eat something you don’t want to share.
Do you like pooing alone.
Do you enjoy every cupboard being emptied four times a day.
Can you handle a child crying over you not letting them eat the dog.
Are you willing to learn that poo comes in fifty colours.
Can you speak tantrum.
Do you like quiet meals out.
Are you able to apply your make up with a small child using your hair as church bells and colouring their legs in with your Mac foundation.
Are you comfortable with the fact that one day your child will reach for your sanitary products.
Are you able to tidy up 40 times a day.
Do you have the hands of a small child to do up the most ridiculously sized child buttons.
Can you accept the fact that one day you will feel like a mum warrior and the next like you want to check into a hotel. Alone.
Do you like wine.
