Not-so-great expectations

*This article was first published in 2010 when my eldest child was a baby. Re-published now on request.

‘The first six weeks are hell; don’t feel bad if you hate it, it does get better.’

Of all the advice I received in the lead up to first-time motherhood (and believe me, there was plenty), this was hands-down the most valuable.

The value of values.


What do you value? In life; a partner; a job?

If I asked you this question, could you answer me? Not with some vague explanation of what you think your values should be, or what you want them to be; but with a clear description of the things that are most important to you and the way you live your life.

What are your values? Can you articulate them?

Dear passive-aggressive person…

Dear passive-aggressive person,
