OK, so it's not really a surprise, the beautiful little girl has been cooking inside my big sister for the past 9 months...
But, it did get me thinking about how different things were when she had her first two all those years ago.
Back when she first got pregnant I was working full time for other people and the day she gave birth to my first beautiful nephew (in all honesty, he wasn't that beautiful back then he kinda looked like an alien... #sorrysis) I was stuck at a 3 day conference in Manchester.
In fact, I didn't even meet him for about 4 months because of how busy my schedule was.
I know, I'm such a bad aunty.
I promised to do better for her next one but the same thing kinda happened, but this time I was working over in Leicester.
As the years wen't by and I switched jobs I managed to relocate back to Telford so that I could be closer to the things that really mattered to me - my family.
Whiz forward 7 years and she's popping out baby number 3, another little boy.
This time though, I was able to drop everything when she went in labour to take the two eldest to school, work from hers and pick them up again.
I even got to visit them both in the hospital.
Luckily, I was able to keep up my 'good aunty' streak this time round & fill in as a substitute at the schools sports days, take them to school and help get the house ready for her return from hospital.
Yes, I ended up doing a couple of late nights to do the essentials but here's the thing.
We only live once.
Back when I decided to go into business for myself I was adamant I wouldn't miss important family events.
Many people go into business for themselves and end up working more hours than they did in their 9-5 (& this was me for the first couple of years).
Thank fully, I've woven in a few little side hustles which after the initial set up work on autopilot to bring in the base money I need each month & everything else is a bonus.
One of these is with doTERRA, the worlds leading supplier of essential oils.
I use them personally and I love using them during therapy because of how powerful they have proven to be.

& just in case you were wondering, my big sis and the new baby are doing great :)
See you tomorrow where I'll be sharing 'What to do when you wake up and feel like the world is imploding'.
