    Well, girls -

    How do you feel about your little munchkin? Are your feelings what you expected or have they surprised you?

    I have found that like everything else, loving baby is a variable. Some days you love her so much, and others you could take or leave this whole motherhood lark.

    What do you think?

    Without sounding bad, I love Damien to bits but some days I wish I could walk away. He is the most testing, tiring little munchkin. I don't want to wish the time away, as I already miss him as a newborn (even if he is still only in newborn clothes!) but I voted that I can't wait for him to grow up and respond to me. His reflux and sleep apnoea will stop (hopefully) when he gets older too and I can't wait for that. Sound like a bad mum now don't I?

    Like Emilia, this is our last. The older ones can do all the growing up they want, but I want to keep Alex as my liitle baby. I went back to work full time soon after the others and seemed to miss everything they did, but now I work at home, I'm not going to miss a single moment :D . I relish every cuddle, smile, smelly bum and sick because I know I'll never be here again :( .

    edit from OH - Charlotte can grow up but she's to be chaperoned by her brothers until she's 30

    Sami, you don't sound like a bad mum - I felt like that with Callum, but this time I feel differently because I'm coming to terms with not having any more

    sami, of course you dont sound like a bad mother. i feel like everything gets overwhelming sometimes and could run a mile. i feel totally fed up today for some reason woke up at 8.30 and i've just stopped feeling weeping now.

    it's such a demanding life changing thing that no matter how much you love them you are going to have times when things get too much x

    Hey Sami you're not a bad mum you're a super mum! Especially since he's so testing and tiring. I said to my OH the other day - I let my sister take Naomi for a walk (she was being grizzly) and sat in absolute bliss while the two were out, because I can't take her crying for no reason. I felt guilty then that I hadn't missed her. But you can't do that. If you did you'd crack up when the child went to school and stuff. You need to be able to take a break.
    My GP asked me yesterday if I had opted to stay at home from work altogether because I was "addicted" to my baby. I said - "gosh, no way". I have a lovely daughter but I also love my job, and while giving her to a stranger for five hours a day is going to hurt, I think that getting back to work etc will be good for me as a person. I don't want to give ME up, just because I have a Mini-Me!

    I voted for I love my baby but can take breaks without cracking up, although the second she is out of my sight I miss her, I can cope with it.

    I feel exactly how I expected to feel. It took a few weeks but we're there now, we have a lovely bond.

    I can take breaks from her without cracking up - i.e. have a bath if DH is looking after her in the front room, but I am pretty besotted with her. She's my little darling :D

    Lol, Layla.

    I love Jack to bits and i really miss him when i don't see him, and i'm the same with Amy but i love having a break. I am at home with them both all day so when Andy comes home he takes over for a while, while i have a bath or go to my friends for a brew (she only lives 2 minutes away)

    I don't think that anyone who finds it trying to be a mum is bad. All babies play up when you are stressed, but it's them that stresses you ok so it's a vicious circle!!!
    Everyone tries their hardest with their babies and it is the hardest job to ever take on.

    Well done everyone :D :D :D
