Three days

A lot can happen in three days

That’s  three days of not putting on weight. Not sleeping in your own bed. Not sleeping with your husband

Three days of not putting your little girl to bed

Another three days of missed swimming lessons, playgroups and play dates. three more days of not seeing your friends

Three more days of not introducing your gorgeous new baby to the world and the beautiful sights outside a hospital ward 

Three days of your husband not getting proper sleep

Three days of encroaching on grandparents hospitality. another weekend of them not seeing their daughter because there’s no room. 

Just Three More Days might not be much to you. but it’s an eternity for my family.
