Haiku of Premature Birth

I am currently on holiday and have left my blog in the capable hands of my favourite bloggers. First up is the lovely K from Mummy Pinkwellies. 
When the gorgeous Kylie asked me to do a guest post over on her blog I agreed immediately. What an honor and not an opportunity to be missed.

But then I panicked, I have so much on at the moment with annual accounts needing sending off to the accountant, a full diary and all sorts of other stuff to do I’ve hardly had time to keep up with my own blog, let alone anyone else’s.

But then I came across The voice of Sarah MilesHaiku of Me idea and it got me to thinking.

A Haiku is a Japanese poem. It is 3 lines long and is made up of just 17 syllables in 3 phrases of 5, 7 and 5. So:
Line 1 – 5 syllables
Line 2 – 7 syllables
Line 3 – 5 syllables




I completed the Haiku of me and this is my Haiku of Littlebit’s premature birth. I think a few short sentences really can say an awful lot. You don’t need many words to say it all.


Haiku of Littlebit’s premature birth

10 weeks early. Fear.
Separation. Expressed milk.
Fear. Hope. Prayer. Faith. Love.



So, I’m Katherine, mostly known as K and I blog as Mummy Pinkwellies. I blog about:
* all things toddler
* being a mummy to a feisty 30 week preemie
* life in the small market town of Hinckley
* my campaign and fundraising work for Bliss – for babies born too soon, too small, too sick and Tommy's - researching problems in pregnancy
* the things that annoy me
* the things that I love
amongst other stuff and probably a fair bit of fluff.
I am a doting stay at home mama to Littlebit, seen below. Born at 30 weeks gestation, weighing just 2lb 4.5oz Littlebit is a little fighter. After spending 8 weeks on the NICU and SCBU she came home and life hasn’t been the same since.
