I’m starting to feel like I need to create a category for this! How much trouble can one possibly have?! It is so bad that I am actually starting to lose track of how many we’ve had. Betty who was working for us since December has fallen ill and cannot return to work. Indefinitely.
I really think people underestimate how much hormones can affect your emotions, or even your physical well being. I certainly did. Because I was one of those people, I feel like it is hard for other people to understand what you are going through when you are affected by this. My nesting has
A couple of weeks ago we bought Babyice a new sippy cup. We allowed him to pick it himself and he chose a green Nuby sippy cup with tractors and digger loaders on it. I was most chuffed with his new sippy cup and we decided that we would let him drink *everything* out of
I give up. I surrender. It’s over. I can no longer pretend that I do not need help in the domestic department. At first Rudi and I managed okay. We did eventually end up doing all the cleaning/laundry/ironing on a weekend which took up most of our Saturday or Sunday and sucked hugely. We

Today is one of those days that I am happy to be pregnant. I’m not feeling very uncomfortable right now or too tired at the moment. Last night not so much. I could not for the life of me find a comfortable position to sit down/lie down on the couch while we were watching TV.
Yesterday was such a mad rush. Rudi came to pick me up over an hour late from work as he had to take some of his colleagues home because of the taxi/bus strike. You think the strike won’t affect you if you have transport, but it does affect you. So when we got home
Screeching tires are the most annoying sound in the world. Guess what Grand Tourismo 4 sounds like? Constant revving engines and screeching tires. Ugh. Last night when we got home, he went straight to the Playstation. Then it was Grand Tourismo until it was time for my soapie. After that he insisted that there was
