Not nothing, sit down and supper.

1. I pick up from the library What Mothers Do: Especially When it Looks Like Nothing which I have seen recommended over and over again on parenting sites. I am hoping it will help me lay to rest some of the haunting remarks I've heard from my friends about empty days spent doing "nothing".

2. Baby Badger has been feeling very heavy lately, and really going for it with the Braxton Hicks contractions. It's so good to sit down for a few minutes, and whenever we are out, I'm constantly looking round for a bench!

3. Nick makes a huge pie -- we eat very late, but it's very good, full of tasty steak and kidney and juicy mushrooms.


  1. For me, becoming a mom to a newborn was a life adjustment. I don't think you need to be anxious about it though. We all have our unique ways of enjoying experiences and adjusting to changes. Having a good support system is very helpful as well has having a positive, proactive attidue. From what I've read you seem to have those things in place. I'm excited for you! But the pie sounds awful. :)

  2. #2-- Baby Badger is almost home.

  3. My favourite mothering book when my two were small was 'How not to be a perfect mother' by Libby Purves - so reassuring and full of wisdom. Blessings on you all as you start this great adventure! x
