Congratulations Prince William and Princess Catherine

Coaching for Lifetime Change would like to congratulate Kate and Will on the arrival of their little boy.  It has been definitely a media circus leading up to the birth.  What was amazing was the dazzling smile they both had showing the new member of the family to the world. But there was also that look that all new mums and dads have with what do we do next.

But just like any new parent, they too will go through all the joys and struggles all parents have. I am sure they are working out how much little one is feeding, how do you change a nappy, how do you breast feed, sleep routine and simply getting to know this new little person in their lives.  Family of origin will definitely play a major part for Prince William and Princess Kate as not only did both come from different family lives but they have to work together on how to raise their new son.  I am sure that there is a sense of grief especially for Prince William as he will not have the chance to share it with his mum.  I remember feeling sad after the birth of my girls knowing that my dad was not there to share this wonderful moment.

The media needs to respect their need for time together as a family as from reports they want to shelter their new child from the media eye as much as possible.  They will also need to be firm with family and friends if they do not want visitors all the time and I do suggest a sign on the gate to let people know that the new family is resting.

I do hope they are hands on with the child and by media reports they will be and not relying solely on nannies to raise the child.  I wish you both all the best and feel free to contact me if you need any guidance 🙂


Happy Mother’s Day

Happy mother’s day to all mums out there all over the world.  My morning started off well with my girls giving me presents from school and kinder and I simply loved their excitement.  Hubby started to make some yummy pancakes for breakfast which was a hit with Grace. Sadly not long after having mine, Emma decided to remind me about being a mum by vomiting all over us both.

But this year was also my first year of my mum not being here.  I remember this time last year she was in Knox hospital trying to get her pain managed.  We knew then that last year was probably going to be the last year with her here.  I was planning to go to the cemetery to visit her but stayed home to look after Emma.  But she was never far from my thoughts.
