A flying visit

April 9, 2010

My Mum is due to arrive to stay in less than three hours. I am so very excited, although from the outsid you may not notice as I am dead tired. An interrupted night’s sleep on Wednesday, a trip to Ikea with a grumpy baby yesterday and a baby that would not sleep last night have rendered my brain completely useless, and I am wandering around in a daze attempting to tidy up, but really just moving stuff around.

Piran is full of beans of course, it seems being awake and alternating between crying and playing for three hours between the time of 11.30 and 2.30 has no affect on him at all. I however am so completely out of practice. How did we ever cope with a newborn? In the end last night I fed him, which probably means that now we will be back to night feeds all over again, after two glorious weeks of him sleeping from 7pm to 7am. Just when you think you have a handle on things………

Anyway, Mum does not know about this blog, and although I am seriously considering ‘coming out’ over the next few days I am not 100% sure, and so I don’t stress myself out too much I am going to have a week off, and just enjoy her company, and her complete delight in my baby boy.

However, in my last few moments I wanted to share the following with you. I have been tagged by two wonderful people – Mum Versus Kids & Insomniac Mummy to share seven things about myself. I am sure I have done something similar to this before so last night in bed I asked Mr C for a list of 7 things that he would like to tell you about me. Here they are:

1. I am an amazing mum to Piran
2. I am his best friend in the whole world
3. I give the best advice
4. I am a good cook baker. He changed his mind on that one. Apparently I am still a good cook but a better baker of cakes!
5. I look beautiful when I am asleep
6. I am brilliant at making him laugh
7. I stop the ‘gardening madness’ – what this actually means is I am his gardening conscience, I stop him spending all of his money on plants.

I am also meant to be tagging seven people. I have no time as I hear Piran stirring upstairs. Perhaps I will come back at a later date or please feel free to volunteer in the comments section. I will add a link to your blog!
