Batteries not included

I always feel sorry for the 2nd child.  The poor buggers.  They already get hand me down clothes.  They never get pictures taken of them.  They don’t seem to have record books and if they have a toy (hand me down, of course) that is battery powered……..forget it.  That toy will never work again. When […]

Feeding Fail

I really amaze myself at just how unbelievably thick i am.  Those that know me will not be surprised but I did a massive faux pas earlier. So I feed Thing 1 by sitting her up in her little baby pod.  The baby pod as you know has a little toy on the table that […]

I dont know why it is but Thing 1 is SO clumsy.  she is just like me.  she never looks where she is going.  This has led to several black eyes, scraped knees and legs that look like they have had a confrontation with a baseball bat.

Crying over Contraception

Last time I was with my midwife I got some leaflets about contraception because we are SO done.   Unless we win the lottery or accidentally discover a platinum mine in our back yard, I’m afraid the hubby has to either tie a knot in it or I need to shove a zip over mine. […]

First Day back at work……….Oh the GUILT!!!!!!!!!

I feel like the BIGGEST BITCH in the world.  Today was the day I returned to work.  Last night was just too horrid for words.  I was getting Thing 2′s bag packed for daycare and I just felt so wrong. So out of sorts.  I got the milk ready in her bottles and realized someone […]

Jabs AAARRRRGGGGGHHHHH

So Thing 2 had her 8 week Drs appointment and it was the first dose of the dreaded shots.  I always dread this because you will absolutely 100% see your child scream in pain.  Its amazing how something so small can make you want to crumble to your knees and cry like a baby.  You […]

Sleep Training….lets see how it goes

Well Thing 2 is at the 6 week mark so we are starting to sleep train.  This is a controversial practice that parents either love the sound of or hate the sound of.  Myself and my hubby are very structured and do everything by routine so for us the Dr Spock method of child rearing […]
