“I wanna read it first!” “No, me!”

My latest column from Australian Catholics is available online – for now. I can never get the hang of when things are available and when they disappear behind a paywall. But go! Look! While you still can!

    Finally got round to reading your article. If it makes you feel any better, I get judged when walking around the shops with one… prior to getting pregnant again there was lots of ‘oh are you planning of having another one’ type comments, and after pregnancy it was the back to the old chestnut of ‘I guess you’re hoping for a boy this time then?’ to which I always want to reply with something snappy like ‘a BOY, I was hoping for a guinea pig’, but am never quite game enough. Only a couple of times when people asked what I was having did I respond with ‘a baby’. People are way to judgmental. Honestly, you are one of my heroes, and I look up to you as a mother to emulate. When I’m struggling with something there’s a list of people I think of for how they would handle the situation ‘what would my mum do’ is usually first, but ‘what would Kate do’ is often a close second! Be proud of your amazing family and the fact that you had the strength to go through pregnancy five times (says the person struggling with the final stages of her second).

      Thank you so much, Rebecca! That really means a lot to me. I hope things are going well for you with your beautiful new baby boy. No doubt you will be inundated with “That’s enough now! You have a pigeon pair!” or “but don’t you want to try again so your little girl has a sister?” by an army of randoms in the supermarket!
