Is it normal...

…to act like a complete loon with your spouse but pretend to be sane and mature-enough-to-have-a-baby in public?

…to sit in your parked car for an extra fifteen minutes just because you don’t want to wake up your baby?

…to surreptitiously take photos of a family who don’t seem to realise that their child has turned into a yeti?

 …to find yourself talking about baby poop with random strangers?

…to watch this video on loop?

...to still feel like you haven't got a clue about this parenting lark after two months?

The Life Of Faith


  1. I've totally sat in the car for an extra 15-20 minutes to let my daughter sleep. Still do, and she's almost 4.

  2. Yes - all perfectly normal. We've spent longer than 20 minutes sat in the car because the girls were asleep although we usually tend to go to a drive through of some description so that we can at least sit in the car with coffee. It's also perfectly normal to feel that you never have a clue - the children are constantly changing and therefore you have to change with them and learn as you go along, and one child is totally different from another, so even if you get it sorted for one you still need to learn a whole new set of rules the another...

  3. Ha ha! That was so funny, thank you for the laugh! (But seriously, was that a kid all dressed up in moss? What WAS that?!)

  4. The funny thing is just when you think you have gotten a handle of things.. for baby changes routine again. You just have to go with the flow until you can control the routine yourself. I really enjoyed reading this post and yes it is normal to sit in the idling car while your baby is sleeping :)
    I am following you now and would love for you to follow back.

  5. I loved this post. It made me laugh! ;)

  6. I've totally done all these things. Except take pictures of a family with a weird Yeti child, LOL!

  7. Totally. TOTALLY. Normal!
