We’re taking a little break

So if all goes according to plan, The Peanut will be arriving in a couple of days time. Whaaaaaaat?! I am not ready for this. Being mom to The Munchkin is already a job that keeps me constantly on my toes. I’m not sure I have enough toes left for a second one.

We were hoping to find out The Peanut’s gender this time because baby was being very uncooperative at my last gynae scan. Alas, it was not to be. This kid is determined to keep his or her gender a surprise and to be honest I’m not really bothered about it. Which is very odd for me – because I am the most bis! With The Munchkin, I couldn’t wait to know but I think that was  ...
