The reasons why I will forever worry about my child

To begin let me say this is not a post about who is my fave child, so boy’s if you ever read this in the future know that I love you both in equal measure.

This is a post about the child that causes me to worry the most.

It has to be my eldest Max, currently 2 years and 3 months ish. An absolute bruiser of a boy and about to head off to the big scary world of nursery! Scary for me as his mummy that is, I imagine he’ll take to it like a duck to water.

This is Max the little monkey

Here are my top 3 worries with my biggest baby boy:


  • His Health:

We began Max’s life with 3 hospital stays from the age of 3 to 6 month’s. The reason wa srecurring Urine Tract Infections. It was the most stressfull start to motherhood I could have expereinced. The first time he overheated and had a febrile convuslion which resulted in a ambulance being called. I had never been so sacred in all my life. To this day I still thank the lord that my next door neighbour was home and able to keep a clear head for me.

Since he got the all clear and stopped taking medication I have always worried when he has gotton ill espically if he has had a temp or a chesty cough. I always think the worst, it’s a mother peroutive I belive to be that little extra cautious.

This was just after the third infection I think. The canula in his hand had to be removed and reinserted in his foot.

  • How he will mix with others at nursery:

Max can be the sweetest kind natured boy going, but he also (like most toddlers) has a issue right now with sharing. He has a boy cousin who is 11 month’s older than him and has alwyas had to stand up for himself, this has made him slightly boistrous and I’m just hoping this side of him wont make an appearance too much in the hours he is away from me.


  • What will the future bring for my boy:

This ones a biggie. It’s also a worry that I can file at the back of my mind for now. I find myself constantly thinking will he be happy will he have friends. Will he find a good job and have a happy life. Would it be in his plans to look after us oldies. My boy’s are my life and I cant handle the throught of not having them nearby.


So am I alone in this, am I being a “Smother”. I often look at both boys when they are deep in the land of nod and think wow how did I get so lucky.

    You are such a good mum kris it is natural to worry about your big boy. I worry too. The world is a dark and dangerous place and as you get older you realise this. They are the light shining through and no matter what they do they will always make you proud!
