Well, somehow we are three months in and I have no idea how it happened.
Before Christmas I was studying and sitting on a HD average.
How did I go from that to handing in an assignment 4 days late and then deciding not to attend the exam?
It’s called being a mother.
Sometimes, there are priorities.
The perils of the Study-at-home-Mum.
This current study period I’m taking a break.
It makes me feel like a quitter.
But I am not quitting.
I made a conscious decision to not attempt to study this period.
And by conscious decision I mean that I actually enrolled for the wrong study period.
It works out better this way.
Over the next few months (which encompass the current study period) I have the Digital Parents Conference.
Oscar has appointments coming out his ears and a surgery (hopefully before Easter).
Nearly all the people we know have their birthdays over the next three months.
Including the Two.
Oh man, I am so excited.
The birthday theme is so awesome.
More on that later I’m sure.
Roo is growing and learning at such an alarming rate.
She knows her alphabet now.
Well enough that when I ask her which letter is which, she can type them on a qwerty keyboard.
Which happens to be located in her preschooler app in my phone…
She knows her numbers. She counts to 20 and can point out which numbers are which up to 10.
She knows her colours. She knows the difference between just “purple” and “lilac”.
She knows them well enough to purposefully tell us the wrong colour as part of a game.
“It’s pink, mummy!”
“Really? I thought it looked purple…”
“No, it not purple. Its LILAC!”
I want so badly for her to learn, but I don’t want her to grow up.
Also, last night I caught her fake evil laughing when she should have been asleep.
I’m never sure in these situations whether to be proud or concerned…
Let’s go with proud.
The Two are nearly two. I’m so spun out.
Two sent me spinning with Roo as well.
The end of true babyhood.
The beginning of real toddlerhood.
The terrible twos. Times two.
I’m exhausted by the thought of it.
I need to go to sleep, wake me up when its over.
I don’t want to close my eyes, I don’t want to fall asleep…
I think I’m delirious.
The flatter I feel the more random I become.
Trying to joke myself out of a funk.
I was in the shower today, and literally thought to myself:
You know what would be a good blog post? 10 reasons why it’s better to have kids than a car.
And then I realised that was a TERRIBLE IDEA.
But continued to come up with ways kids are better than cars.
Maybe one day I’ll feel random enough to share that with you.
I’ve got more clever then I know what to do with right now.
You know who else is clever?
Chux is clever.
Not just because they are sponsoring me to go to DPCON in only 16 days, but also because they sent me a bunch of goodies to play with.
I’m a bit in love with the Kitchen Wonder Cloth, to be honest…
Oh, and also, they’ve got a hamper sitting in their office waiting for one of you to win it!!
