  1. It is possible to love another little one as much as you love your first born.
  2. This may take a little longer than it did first time round and that’s OK.
  3. I am shoutier than I want to be.
  4. I really can’t remember the last time my armpits, legs and bikini line we’re all smooth at the same time.
  5. Breastfeeding can work and be amazing with #2 when it really didn’t and wasn’t with #1.
  6. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee.
  7. Watching your tiny children interact can make your heart melt.
  8. Listening to your tiny children interact can make your brain melt.
  9. Netflix. On the iPad. While cooking dinner.
  10. Family who offer to babysit are precious. Family who offer to take your children overnight should be sainted.
  11. OK, but it’ll have to be a quickie. Nuff said.
  12. Synchronised nap time #lifegoal
  13. YSL Touche Eclat can be purchased for under a tenner on eBay. Unfortunately still not with a paintbrush sized applicator.
  14. It is well funny when the toddler teaches the baby to say poo and bum.
  15. Lipstick is nice, blusher is necessary.
  16. Internet shopping. Love a doorstep gossip with Dave from Yodel.
  17. The baby doesn’t care if you have to get up early with the toddler, the toddler doesn’t give a shit if you’ve been up all night with the baby.
  18. I am more honest, confident and accepting. I have a lot less time to worry about it…
  19. Mum vest. Stretchy, tucked into your jeans/leggings, neutral colour – smooths everything out, keeps you warm and stops any unwanted belly flashing.
  20. Now two people think I’m fricking funny. Awesome.
