Is it just me or does anyone else worry more now they are a parent?
Sometimes I just lie there snuggling my gorgeous daughter and the love I have for her takes my breath away.
Sometimes I just lie there cuddling her and the love I have for her is so strong it is almost painful. Does that make sense?
I am a natural born worrier, I have an extremely over active imagination but sometimes I make myself worry too much.
What if something happens to me? Will someone else love my girl as much as I do?
Would they love her with their whole heart?
Would they know?
Know how she likes to be cuddled? Know that she has to snuggle 'Friend' the seahorse in order to go to sleep? Know that she likes to dance to 'Moves like Jagger.'
Know what makes her laugh. Know what makes her eyes sparkle.
Would they do anything they could to make her happy?
I hate worrying but I do so much more now I have her. I am so happy, we are so happy, our little family means more to me than anything in the world. The love I have for them is so intense.
The worrying I have certainly doesn't stop me doing things, or enjoying our lives together but there is always a little part of me that thinks 'What if?'
Is it just me that has these thoughts?
