I never know how to start my story. You see, I’m not your typical Mummy. I didn’t grow up playing with baby dolls dreaming of the day when I would have my own. In fact, for a long time, I didn’t think I even wanted children. I thought the maternal gene had skipped me, and to be honest I was OK with it. I had a good career and the idea of changing dirty nappies and being vomited on every two seconds just didn’t appeal to me.
