My friend Salma gave me an idea.
It’s time maybe to write a bit about Mister Pop life, not so much to inspire others, because I think some mums are 10 times more inspiring than me, Salma is, for exemple. But more to share a bit about our life and the things we do and love.
In a month or so, Mister Pop will celebrate its first birthday. It’s crazy, I know!
The day I discovered I was pregnant, I decided to write down everything, from my joy to my fears and every one of my feelings. It’s important for me to tell him the story of his life, his birth, to explain him my choices and dreams. I created a private blog for him to discover when he is old enough and ready. For me it’s a good way to remember things about our life together.
I never dreamt (nobody does) of being a single mum. But I know I am much better on my own, raising Mister Pop. At least, he lives in peace and in a serene place. I would not have been able to provide this for him, if I had stayed in Ireland. So it’s all good for now.
So what we have been up to, till now?
