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.

Last week Thursday for instance was a bad time with The Munchkin. He had been up since 5:30am for some reason, had skipped his nap at school and was just a complete wailing, crying terror to deal with come bath/bed time. We didn’t know what to do or which way to turn. The Husband and I were trying to keep our cool but well, we’re only human.

All the while I’m thinking, how the hell are we going to do this with a newborn thrown into the mix? How am I going to deal with bedtime? With one waking the other? Because that is going to happen. The Munchkin is very mommy verskrik and even at 9 months pregnant he insists that I pick him him up, which is really hard to do when your kid is almost 16kgs.

But it’s not like we can send the baby back or anything. So well, I’m just going to take it one moment at a time because if I think too far ahead the last shreds of my sanity will jump ship.

Besides, I think it would be good for The Munchkin to learn to share although this may be a little bit of a hard lesson for him.

I’ll be taking a little break from the blog for a while because I’ll be concentrating on getting into the groove of being a mother to two and just enjoying The Peanut for a while. And I can only do so much.

I’m not sure how long I’ll be away for but I’ll be updating on Instagram and on the Surviving the Madness Facebook Page because those are easier to do than a full blown blog post. So be sure to follow me on my accounts for the birth announcement and other stuff.

Wish us luck, guys. Thoughts and prayers are much appreciated!

    All the best, hun. You know, I discovered that the step from one to two is not just doubling up on efforts as one could logically extrapolate on, in fact, it can be quite a mind klap. But the good news is, you WILL find that groove. Maybe even sooner than you thought or maybe it wont even be such a rough ride at all. But either way, I wish a healthy birth, and happy days. X
