My take on the joys and difficulties of being a parent, here I am not pretending to know it all… at all just trying to figure it out like every other parent on the planet and have some fun doing it. :)
Daniel has been classified a “toddler” for a month. A phase I have been warned about. It just came so quickly I feel like, we didn’t have enough time to prepare for it, emotionally and physically. He has all he needs though, a new wardrobe and such but there’s is much I did not prepare for too. Like, him moving from being a baby to being a little boy. Toddler-hood is not for sissy’s!
This last week Emilie was invited to a sleepover. Very spur of the moment. Literally Wednesday she came home from school and said “Mom, my friend “so and so” is having a sleepover on Friday..” she lets her voice trail off while she is figuring out exactly how to ask me questions she already knows the answer to. I was very calm as the easy answer to this would be “no”.
Hands up if your boobs leak when you hear a crying baby? If your mind goes blank? You grit your teeth while trying to talk sweetly, over the loud screams? Your breath quickens, and little creatures feel like they are moving around under your clothes? While you try aimlessly to soothe your child, whose eyes are probably closed anyway. (You can put your hands down now) Now imagine all this is happening in the car, whilst your baby is safety tucked in their car seat. (more…)
It’s been just over a week since Daniel turned one and I am still reeling in all the excitement from what transpired. With this birthday approaching I honestly had no idea what we wanted to do. One day I wanted a party, then a cake smash, at one stage a cake smash party. I was all over the show. So much so that still one week before the time, I was still indecisive.
