The last few months have been hard. Having two kids is a lot more challenging than I ever expected it to be – particularly when the older one is going through a rather defiant stage, and the younger one doesn’t nap well. Add in the fact that we are still working on the [...]

My kid is just awesome.

I have much, much to write about. The last few months have been a roller coaster, but I finally feel like I’m coming to the end of it. I’m hoping to write down some of my thoughts and feelings about the last little while when I manage to get a minute, but in [...]

I’m 39 weeks 5 days today. Some positive signs, but no baby yet. I swear, it’s waiting until tomorrow (Monkey Boy’s birthday) to come, just to be difficult!

Baby steps

It’s hard not to try and fix everything in my life all at once. I know I’ve said that a bunch of times already, but it’s one of my biggest stumbling blocks, so it’s a statement I need to repeat a lot.
