I never get a chance to participate in this but by a twist of fate and a sick sleepy kid ( no guesses who it is), I have about 2 minutes......
Question of the week: What is the biggest lesson that you have learned in your multiples' first year of life?
- Without a doubt not to sweat the small stuff - you just don't have the time.
- And to never think you have anything figured out, you will be proofed wrong!
- And not to forget our favorite saying: You can survive for a year from take-awy pizza, red wine and chocolate, even if you are breastfeeding.
- Exactly a year ago my dear friend Mieks passed away. I still can not believe that you can simply drop dead (aneurysm) at 40. Her daughter is doing as well as can be expected of a 18 year old without parents (but well provided for money wise). Her twin sister is struggling and her boyfriend has find a new love in one of her friends. My heart still miss her. And her death has certainly increased my appreciation of my own life.
- The Little Miss and I went on a reward afternoon out (she helped a lot when dad was gone and was a super good girl). We saw Ice Age 3 and went for a quick bite to the Spur. She played her heart out and I had some me-time over a cup of coffee.
- We had an icy cold rainy day, so weird for our part of the world (we do not get winter rain).
- We saw summer clothes in the shops and bought The Little Miss her first summer skirt. Come summer!
