Bye for now!
Time for me to bid you adieu for a little while, as Baby No2 is due any day now. All that’s left for me to do is the last-minute bits and pieces such as checking my hospital bag (and Baby’s) is good to go; trying to put my feet up rather than finding more things I want to paint/tidy/organise (I’m reliably informed this is ‘nesting’), and spending quality time with my boy and getting him ready for this new little person in his life.
We’ve been reading the new Matey bathtime book before bed, written by mum of two Emma Greaves - fun for him and a great distraction while I’m washing his hair at lightening speed before the tantrum starts. Research by Matey showed that while 60% of parents believe bathtime to be the most important bonding experience with their child, nearly a quarter also found it quite stressful (especially at the end of a long day when wine o’clock is fast approaching…). As I’m not always on my sparkliest form by that point myself, any form of new entertainment is a Godsend, so thanks to Matey for popping one in the post for us to check out.
Yes, yes, I should also be doing pelvic floor exercises and wriggling my hips into good shape on my birthing ball, and I will. That and drooling over the gorgeous mini looks in Zara’s new kids’ lookbook and the Mini Boden catalogue that popped through the door recently…
Well there’s always time for retail therapy, no?
Back soon. Wish me luck! x
