It’s now January 2020 and I am still in disbelief that we have hit the 1st of January. Not only am I going to have to try to remember to write 2020 when I write the date down, but this means my husband and I will become parents in only a handful of weeks! Our bub is going to be born in February, and I just can’t believe it is coming up so close now. We can now say that they will be here ‘Next month’, wow. Time is flying.
2019 has brought me a lot of greatness, and a lot of heartache. It has been a hard transition, still to this day, being so far away from my family. It’s been a few years now and each day is still hard. I’m learning to adjust to it, especially now that my mother is unwell.
In 2020, I hope that my family is able to visit my newborn as much as they are able to. I don’t want them to miss out on anything, and I plan to video call as much as possible. We are so lucky in this day and age to be able to video call and feel connected to those that are not physically close in proximity. It is a true lifesaver.
I hope my bub and I have a safe labor and delivery, I want nothing more than to be able to experience being a mother. I truly hope that we both are happy, healthy and safe and go through the transition with as little problems as possible. I’m nervous, sure, but I am bloody excited to meet bub so is my husband.
Throughout the new year, I am hoping that my husband and I exceed our wildest dreams together as a new family and are pleasantly surprised by how well we do. I am going to be on maternity leave for the whole year, so financially this will be a new journey for my husband and I but together I truly believe we will be more than alright.
I hope globally we encourage stronger focus on climate change and I hope we ensure that our children have a safe and healthy future on planet Earth.
There is so much that I hope for, but the grand theme for the year will be focused on being the best parent that I can possibly be and I could not be more excited and encouraged to do so.
Let’s do this, 2020!
