Domino effect activities brought about by motherhood

new motherWhen I was about to become a mother for the first time, I realized that my life was suddenly going to change a big deal. I realized that I would undergo a non-reversible change in my life. The changes were in almost all aspects of my life. From my body, my thinking, and the way I did things. What I had not really anticipated for so much were the changes that would occur in my house.

I had been married to my husband for two years and we had lived all along in the apartment we had moved into once we got married. It was a two bedroomed apartment that we had liked for its spacious rooms and kitchen. I had also liked the way light streamed into the bedroom and into the living room.

When I was pregnant with my son, I however realized that I had not carefully thought about children when choosing the house. Luckily, the house did not have any hazards that could affect small children. My only problem was with the furniture arrangements. I had to make major changes to our bedroom to accommodate my newborn’s cot.

When it came to the kitchen, I realized that I had bought much of the kitchenware with only my husband and myself in mind. I had not considered the needs of an infant child.

For example, little kiddies do not eat solid food, they have to have special liquid food made for them. This requires a blender. I did not have a single blender in the house. My husband and I were not very enthusiastic about blended foods such as smoothies so I had not had any reason to think of a blender before. Now I had to get one.

Since I did not know anything about blenders, I went into the internet and started reading articles on how to make food for an infant child. I realized that a smoothie maker would be ideal to make the baby’s food. I read several smoothie maker reviews and finally found one that I believed would be ideal for me.

Since by then I was quite pregnant, my husband decided to do the shopping for me. I told him the name of the exact smoothie maker I wanted and told him of some of the outlets where he could find it.

As he was shopping, my husband stumbled across an ice-cream maker. My husband and I are both quite fond of ice-cream. We had however never thought about homemade ice cream. My husband thought that since I would be spending a lot of time at home, I could as well be making some homemade ice-cream. Since he had no clue about the type of ice-cream maker to buy, he decided not to buy one immediately. He asked me to first go over some of the ice cream maker reviews on the net and see which ice cream maker would be ideal for us. Since I love ice cream so much, that evening I was ready with an answer.
