Its good to be a mum!
Today I had one of those moments, when you stop and look, think, I love this, it is wonderful to have George in my life! He is smiling and talking, trying to roll and even sit when lying back on my pillow.
He slept while I weeded the garden, he slept when I did my phone consults and then napped when I had friends for a cup of tea! I am grateful for the knowledge I have, to have spent the time setting up his sleeping routine so that it does make my life easier and does give me time to sit back and reflect on how lucky I am.
Today was day 2 of being home after a work road trip to Wellington, it was a mammoth trip but worth its hard work. I took a seminar for parents and teachers, focusing on the 1-4yr old age group, which was a breath of fresh air from winding and settling!
I had a few nerves in the morning as it has been a few months now since I have taken a seminar but it only took a few minutes before I got back into the swing of things. I do love working even though now with having George in my life it’s hard to juggle it all.
It all has been made much easier having my mother able to help. She came on the roadie to look after G and help ease the load of driving. The joy that Grandchildren bring for our parents and older generation is so special and unique, the love they have is so genuine because they are connected but without the same responsibilities. Well that is for some Grandparents, many now and in the past played much larger rolls, if not the main care-giving role of their grandchildren’s lives.
Love being a mum!
Sharlene was a huge help to Trish and myself. As new parents, she gave us a really good idea of how we could better understand Joshua and what he needed. As Sharlene says, there are lots of different crys that a baby has, but without the support of someone like Sharlene, we had no idea which was which!
We highly recommend Sharlene’s service and her book to all new parents. Her easy going approach makes her really easy to talk to and seeing her settle our wee boy when he’s upset is a real testament to her professionalism. Thank you again Sharlene!
My partner and I asked Sharlene to come and help us with our new baby girl after we were really struggling to know what to do and our (probably 6 weeks old at that stage) daughter was constantly crying, was losing weight rapidly and generally driving us towards a breakdown. No exaggeration – when our girl saw Sharlene and Sharlene picked her up, she started “cooing” at Sharlene and smiling like she’d never done at us! We knew straight away that she had something special. She gave us some great tips which made immediate improvements, and generally took away a lot of the stress we were feeling. She was able to give us advice on OUR situation and OUR baby, rather than just generalising like some others seemed to. We then followed her (or her book’s) advice closely on a bunch of other things from then on, and it was like we had a new baby (one who now sleeps through the night, has put on weight brilliantly, and basically just seems really happy and contented). I have recommended Sharlene (and her book) to a number of colleagues and friends, and one said that the
Thank you so much sharlene. My little boy had not slept in his cot for months before trying your settling technique. I too have your book and it is my baby bible! Highly recommend! I was going crazy before I spoke with you and was at a loss as to what to do next. Thank you…
