Is it just me or the minute you become a mother, it’s like you’ve opened yourself up to criticism from every tom, dick and harry? I’ve never received so much advice, suggestion, and insults before. Suddenly every other mother is an expert and has the right to tell you how to raise your kids or question why your son doesn’t go to nursery when he is 2 years old when every other kid does.

What a lot of people don’t know is I was very depressed and overwhelmed during my second pregnancy. Adam was about 6 months old when we found out we were expecting our second baby. Different emotions went through my head but one that stood out and was more evident was my depression. I tried to keep it to myself as much as I could but then some days I just couldn’t and I would just vent out to my husband or mother. Trust me, we were excited about having another baby and Adam having a little brother/sister to play with, but we were too worried and scared to see it clearly then. Actually I think just me.

Planing our trip to Milan & Zurich was so exciting! I’ve never been to Italy before so I was particularly excited about Milan. Booked our flights, tickets, trains and everything. Few days before traveling that’s when I started getting so nervous. Adam is 11 months and it’ll be the first time traveling with him. I didn’t know what to expect! He normally gets restless so easily when at home so we always go for walks, go to the park, walk to spinneys or something active. How was I going to keep him entertained in a plane for 7 hours?

You can imagine how happy we were when we found out Adam is going to be a big brother!! I had the best childhood with my brother. We did a lot of things together including fighting with each other (I would be Steve Austin & he would be The Rock!), we went partying together but most importantly we had each other. My husband has 2 brothers & 1 sister, so he knows as well how amazing it is growing up with siblings.
We’re so excited for Adam to experience that bond. Whether he’ll have a baby sister or brother, I know he will be the sweetest big brother. I know he is still too young to understand what it means having a little sibling but I can’t wait till he does.
