~ All the way through my pregnancy, all I wanted (and could keep down) for breakfast was Marmite on white toast with a cup of Earl Grey tea. The first meal I ate after Pickle was born was apricot jam on toast with a cup of Milo, and now, that’s all I want for breakfast.
~ I can not seem to bake a decent brownie. Regardless of the recipe, they always come out not just gooey, but completely undercooked.
~ It’s a bigger adjustment going from zero children to one, than from one child to two. I thought having two kids would be insane, but so far, we’re trucking along nicely. Of course, Wednesday nights are a different story, as Tall leaves for squash almost as soon as he gets in from work, leaving me with one hungry toddler, and one hungry baby.
~ We’re closer to Spring than to Autumn now, and I just can’t seem to get my head around the speed with which this year is going. I will, however, be glad to see the back of Winter.
~ Young people are much better at guessing a scrunchy-faced baby’s gender than old people.
~ I’d forgotten (a) how to dress for breastfeeding (and it’s only been 10 months since I stopped feeding Tiny), and (b) how hungry it makes me! I am constantly checking the fridge and pantry for something to snack on…not good when all I seem to want is chocolate, sweets or crackers and paté.
~ Tiny’s favourite TV shows at the moment are two which I think are quite sweet and have an educational element to them: Raa Raa the Noisy Lion, and Louis. Pity Sky decided to remove Raa Raa from their programming for the month.
~ Homebrand nappies are really, really good. We usually only put one on Tiny at night, but he’s had a bit of an upset stomach recently so we’ve been using them during the day as well. Good fit, good “containment” factor, cute design, and cheap-cheap-cheap.
