I wouldn't say things are any easier, I think Mum's are built to worry at least a little, and babies are built to test, at least a little.
But I wouldn't say we are having any less fun either, we have a lovely life of strolls and meetings for coffee (mostly decaf - of course).
In fact mornings are our favourites. Here is our yesterday morning:
Smiles and giggles for Mummy
Then coffee and pottery painting with Godmother Chirsty and Alfie
A pram is a much better walking companion than a dog: it carries your shopping and you don't have to scoop the poop.
