mummy worries

Becoming a mummy makes it necessary to start being a grown up.
You have to be sensible with money;
responsible for your actions;
think of other before yourself.
You have to provide a roof for your child;
food, warmth, safety.
You have to have things like life insurance and wills and savings for their future.

Most days, I'm a pretty chilled out sort of person.
I like to think that I'm pretty laid back
and I like to look at the positives in my life and in the world around me.
I'm a glass-is-half-full sort of person.
But even the most positive person has those days
where doom seems to lurk around every corner
and where the world seems like a really scary place.

You add becoming a parent to those worries
and it amplifies it by about a million.
All of a sudden there is a little person relying on you,
which is enough responsibility in itself,
but you also adore this little human so much
that you desperately want to protect them from everything.

I hate it when my husband takes the little guy out in the car without me.
I worry the whole time they are out,
that something terrible might happen to my perfect little family.
My husband started a new job recently
and now, instead of working in an office all day which is five minutes from home,
his office is his car and he spends most of his days on the road.
I twitch when the phone rings with an unknown number.
I worry.
And I'm not really a worrier.

But worst of all is when the hubby and I get to go out on dates.
This doesn't happen very often anymore,
mostly because we don't have the money,
but these little trips out make me worry even more.
If anything were to happen to us,
what would happen to our beautiful boy?

So we recently purchased life insurance.
We were naughty really as we should have sorted it out when we took out our mortgage
but we forgot and had more exciting things to spend our money on.
But it's such a relief to know that if something were to happen to one of us,
then the other one and the beautiful boy wouldn't be left homeless.

Next on the list is to sort out our wills.
I know, I know, we should have already done that too,
but nobody likes to think about writing them
because you have to think about awful things that you never want to happen.
Wish us luck.......!


  1. Yep, we did all that when GG was born and it is tedious, expensive, hopefully pointless, but nevertheless vital to your peace of mind - good luck x

  2. I am a real worrier and I try and relax but I was born this way and if anything it has only intensified. I also need to write a will, haven't got round to that yet! xx

  3. We still need to sort out of Life Insurance. You have just kicked me into gear! I share your worries when I am out without my boy.


  4. Get it done!!! Although it's not really money that will create peace of mind about the welfare of your children if you're gone, a Will can help you be clear about who and how you would like your most precious possession to be raised by and loved.

  5. Oh I keep putting this off we really need to set up a safety net for the girls :(

  6. I worry about everything! Iylas granny is taking her for a walk on Sunday and I am already thinking of things that could go wrong, she has been out with anyone other than me and Dad2BabyInsomniac before! I think there is just so much more to lose when you become a parent. We still need to take out life insurance and wills! Eeek! x
