If there’s any accuracy at all in due date predictions, we are exactly 4 weeks away from ‘go live’, personally a day or two later would suit me, a weekend birth would be much easier. I expect my wife, who is now ‘WELL OVER’ carrying the next Illiterate Infant around is probably doesn’t share my attitude and would rather have it NOW.
What not to say to a SAHM.
I’m guilty of being a little over the whole stay at home versus working parent debate. It’s been a while since anyone has thrown a new perspective on it and it normally turns into a “you just don’t understand” from both sides. With this in mind I have no idea what made me click on Stay at home Moms: what you should never say to them! What I read was well written, a bit funny and a great reminder about my wife’s life when I walks out the door each morning. My conclusion is there there are no winners, or losers… everyone’s making a compromise… oh and keep your opinions to yourself!
The this-bird-is-funny! award
Seriously, Kelley over at magnetoboldtoo.com is funny. Like piss-funny. And swears well, very well. I stumbled over her blog the other day and the more I read the more I realised that there are some people out there that don’t just have something interesting to say, but a style that makes you want to read more and more and more (Obvious blog crush brewing). Sure Kelley seems to enjoy a good swear so if your sensitive to that, you might need to squint a few times but I really enjoyed a fresh, raw, honest and bullshit-free perspective. If you haven’t already – check her out (and check out my favourite about me page ever). Danielle is on twitter and Facebook
…and the this-bird-is-right award
My other find was Danielle over at keepingupwiththeholsbys.com who did an awesome post about marriage. No fluff, no “birds suddenly appearing” but a couple of hundred words about the fact that marriage is hard “I don’t mean hard work like Sudoku, I mean hard work like Burma Railway.” She’s not trashing marriage, just saying it a long haul game and at some point you need to get over yourself and work at your marriage like you want it. And like Kelley, the more I read of her site the more I decided to come back – ribs anyone!! Danielle is on Facebook and youtube.
Apologies to award recipients and my two readers if they are offended with the phrase ‘bird’ – I’m going through a ‘London geezer’ stage at the moment- it should pass.
Tis all for now – Sharing with Grace because she’s awesome.
