This adventure they call parenthood


This adventure, this journey

They call ‘parenthood’,

Began with 2 lines on a test,

Mouths wide open we stood…


…In disbelief, in awe,

In excitement, in glee,

A mummy and daddy to

a new life we would be.


Tears and tantrums would come,

All this and much more,

That’s just me and hubby

Throwing ourselves on the floor…


It’s a privileged position to nurture a baby,

To guide them, to love them,


No ‘maybe’.


The best adventure you’ll have

Of that there’s no doubt.

There’s no love quite like it,

As we have found out…

  1. It is an adventure – scary when you realise there is no going back to where you were before it started. There have been moments of peril (a couple of visits to A&E following falling from a buggy or standing on glass), some tears and some cuddles, plenty of high drama. And we’ve no idea how it will end.

  2. Hello Carol

    Being a parent is the most important title, position, job or whatever you want to call it, a single human being can aspire to here on earth. Parenting is the most rewarding and fulfilling job one could ever have. But with that being said, it is also the hardest job too! I love being a parent, but then there are times I hate it too. Luckily, there are many more highs than lows, and that is what we want to remember most!

    Best wishes!
