Conversations I’m not prepared for.

 

I just went to turn off the girls' light. Eilidh looked at my nightie (yes - it's 7.45pm and I'm in my nightwear... what!?) and said,


"I like your nightie"


"Thanks."


"Do you wear it in bed?"


"Yes, to keep me cosy"


"Well, what does Daddy wear?"


"Dunno - a pair of pyjamas"


"Well, I hope he's not naked, cos you wouldn't want to touch his penis"


"Er... no - I wouldn't want to do that".

 


Seriously - what the…?

Things that make me cry.

 

I have been rather emotional of late.  For no reason, other than I’m a girl.  Yes, that’s a valid excuse. 

  • Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.  Really – does this need any explanation?  Though Ty’s little beard thing makes me cry.  Cry for him. It’s bad.
  • Pictures of my friend’s newborn little girl.  I know how long she’s waited for her.  And she’s beautiful.
  • Early mornings. 
  • Body Attack class.  I really don’t know what that one’s about.  Probably just tiredness from the aforementioned early mornings…  Or crying cos I realise my body is going to have to be attacked with a scalpel to make any real difference.
  • Odd socks.  Unless there are people in this house wearing three socks at a time, I just don’t know what’s going on there.  I really hope Robbie’s not wearing three socks.  The Red Hot Chilli Peppers are the only people that could get away with it.  And even then…
  • No more baby gate.  Really – I was sobbing when I took that away from the top of the stairs.  We just didn’t need it.  Cos my babies are big.  And there’s no more babies.  And so there were tears.. :(
  • Lazytown’s ‘Teamwork’ song.  Really!! 
  • Turning 34.  I was 34 last week.  Wow.  Old.  Ever since I turned 30, I’ve had a couple of tears on my birthday. I don’t want to be old! :(

Well.  I think I’ve listed most things.  But, there are things that make me happy.

  • Chocolate and sweets.

Do you need my address to send me some?
