When cleaning the house is some alone time. Going to the toilet becomes a race against time before they notice you’re gone and cry. Every top has a beautiful silvery dribble trail over the shoulder and necklines have become stretched beyond recognition.

You have become a master at one handed eating and can cook, clean and entertain baby with a wiggle dance at the same time.
