Happy Mother's Day

​Happy Mother’s Day to all our wonderful Venn Group mums.

A few of our mums became parents for the first time this year, so we heard from them about how they are finding their new adventure and what they love the most.

I have found being a new mum the hardest things I’ve ever experienced, but the most amazing, magical thing all at the same time. It’s exhausting and challenging, but glorious and has brought my life so much happiness I can’t even explain! 

I love seeing her change every day and watching her learn new skills, growing into such a fabulous happy little soul. I also love the parent and child spaces at the supermarket!

It really is true what people say about becoming a new mum, it has been the most challenging yet most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life! Having to completely adjust life as I knew it before to settling into a cycle of nappies, feeds, naps and trying to learn what Max wanted took some getting used to and the lack of sleep is a shock to the system (especially for someone who religiously had 8 to 9 hours sleep per night before!) but you soon get used to it and it’s so worth it.

I love seeing Max's smiley face throughout the day, and the way he looks at me makes my heart melt! Knowing that he is learning every day and growing a little personality makes the tough times (and there are definitely tough times!) that much more rewarding.

At first I felt nervous being a new mum; I didn’t know what to expect, but gradually, day by day I became more confident and everything began to feel so natural. It’s crazy having a cute little human completely depend on you day and night, but it’s also so incredible; it’s brought out a lot traits in me I never knew I had. I feel like super woman half the time but I also know I’d be nowhere near the person I am today without my bubba and I’m excited to continue my journey throughout motherhood and watch my mini-me grow into the sweetest young man.

Although it sounds a cliché, I love everything about being a new mum. My little man is growing up so fast and it’s so rewarding and extremely satisfying seeing him hit his little milestones. He is a little smiler and he definitely brings out all the smiles in me. He makes me a better person and I love that about him. I love that I can wake up in the morning and feel so grateful and so fulfilled.
