Heart Parent Bingo


I’ve heard several of these and some more recent then others. The most common being “is he crawling or walking yet” really bloody irritates me when people ask why my youngest isn’t crawling or walking at a year old. Well I’m sure if their babies went through what mine did they might not be walking or crawling yet either. I hear other people at groups making their lives sound more dramatic then they actually are. That also annoys me because going back when my baby was first born or going through his op I’d have killed for a drama free life. They sit there silently judging me because I was very over protective of him after the op and he’s not crawling at his age. They don’t know what he’s been through and they don’t know what I’ve had to live through for the past year. I hate the comparisons even between family members what their baby can do well my baby survived open heart surgery at 5 months old so that pees all over what everyone else’s baby can do. My boy will walk or crawl when he is string enough and ready to do it until then I just appreciate all the other firsts he accomplishes.

Author: always over thinking things

I'm 32 years old,married and I'm a full time mum to 2 boys. My eldest is 5 and the youngest is a year old. My eldest boy is on the autistic spectrum and my youngest has a congenital heart defect called tetralogy of fallot. My blog is about my children, about me and my way of dealing with the life I've been given. It's a way of expressing my emotions and feelings through words. This is done anonymously as I want to keep myself away from people who don't know what's happening in my life.
