Nothing but the Truth



12 days since he entered this world. Wow. It feels like much longer.
The first week is really the hardest. I am full of hormones, full of ups and downs.
I am Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. One moment sweet, the next moody and angry.
It's time to get out into the sunshine I think. I've been cooped up inside for too long.

Right now my son has carried in a chestfull of toilet paper.
His dad is going to be sooooo upset at him. It doesn't make me happier either.
The baby is on my lap snoozing after a good breastfeed. Thankfully I have this part under control. It's not as painful to feed anymore and he's putting on weight so yay for me and him.

We're having rice paper rolls for lunch. I can't wait cos it's yummy and mum gave me a jar of her chilli dipping sauce. It's the next best thing to slice bread.

Speaking of slice bread I am thinking of buying a bread maker.
Should I? We go through a loaf and a half a week on slice bread. If I made our own we could save money and I would know what goes into our bread. Do you have any thoughts on this? I'd love to hear it.

Best get going and try to enjoy the sunshine today.

This little light of mine. I've gonna let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
I love how he's clutching onto my shirt.

  1. Hi Kim,
    I have fought off the idea of getting a bread maker, however we go through a lot more bread than a loaf and a half a week... and we only have four family members!If you make your own at least you know what goes into it...! Congratulations on little Elijah, he looks so precious!

  2. Ive stumbled across your blog and have enjoyed reading it. Congrats on #4. I too have 4 children (3 girls, 1 boy). I had 4 children, 5yrs and under, i think yours are a little closer. My youngest is now 2yrs, unfortuanly no more children for us (i tried begging, still a firm no). I could have 10 if i was allowed. Anyway, whilst you will get your sleep back, and you do enjoy not having to wipe so many bottoms as they get older, it still gets busy with homework, after school activities and...oh, the washing...there is always so much washing. Enjoy this newborn stage....it reallly does go so very fast. Esp being #4.
    Take care.
