I had 12 years to dream of what motherhood would be like.
In some areas I was bang on, and in others reality is sooooooo different.
In my dreams I knew I would love my child with all my heart, and I do.
In my dreams I never realised I could get so cross with someone I love so much.
In my dreams I knew that I would give my child everything within me.
In my dreams I never realised how much I would love to have time just to myself.
In my dreams I knew that I longed to be called Mummy.
In my dreams I never realised there would be times I wanted to change my name to anything but Mummy.
Being a mother is everything I dreamed of, and nothing like what I dreamed.
And I wouldn't change it for anything.
