No wait, don’t jump the gun. I’m not pregnant… yet. My goal is that we should  try for baby number 2. Henk and I decided that it’s a good time to start.

So I started another blog to track our journey and (hopefully) the pregnancy. I decided to keep it seperate cause some of my updates might not be for the squeamish, and might not even make a lot of sense all the time. It’ll be more of a journal style.

Here’s the link if you care to follow our journey: Tracy and Henk TTC

I’m still working out the kinks, like the finding the right wordpress theme and organising widgets and sourcing (or making my own) custom header.

I love my daughter dearly and I would do anything for her. And I mean it. I would make a plan and beg steal or borrow to fulfil her needs.

Now we got the foundation down… here follows the post.

I would love to shower without an audience. I would love to use the loo (you know, to pee) without an audience. It doesn’t matter what I do or where I go in my house, when I turn around, there’s that little toothy grin, smiling at me. Following me.

Close the door you say? Have YOU tried closing a door? Then you know, that you don’t close the door if your child is outside the door. Even if the door were fortified with steel bolts. They will open them. A lock uncrackable with class callipers, they will gain access. Your ordinary hollow standard plywood painted white door does not stop them.

It’s a natural ability kids are born with you see: All part of their survival instinct. If they can’t see their mother, they know they are in trouble. Not the naughty chair type trouble: but then who’s going to feed me and clean my bum and give me cuddles kind of trouble. So their larynxes are equipped with a homing device. When child finds itself sans parent, the brain hits the black button. What starts off as a ngeeeegh quickly grows into an earwax-melting WHHAAAAaaaaaah**. Unique to each child, but delivers the same results: mommy’s head pops up from under the sink, daddy crawls out from behind the couch, and the door to the bathroom opens.

**Oscillators have been unable to pinpoint the exact frequencies used with this whail, but why try to measure something so diabolical and cunning.

Tracy: “Could you get some nappies for Amelia when you go to the shop?”
Henk: “Sure, what size?”
Tracy: “Cuddlers, the purple pack.”
Henk: “What size?”
Tracy: “The purple pack.”
Henk: “What size?”
Tracy: “The purple pack.”
Henk: “What size?”
Henk: “WHAT SIZE?”
Tracy: “Purple is a size. You’re buying Cuddlers, not Huggies”

As soon as you become a parent, you will come to be a Spur regular – I can almost guarantee it. Not because you want to, or that the food is superior or even for the atmosphere. Nope. You will frequent this family oasis purely because the manager doesn’t care if your tot-of-terror runs between the tables with the bottle of Spur chip sauce screaming mezzo-soprano notes.

The franchise saw a niche and filled it to overflow. They will feed your kids, entertain them, and even sing happy birthday to them. There’s a play are with trampoline, playhouse, slide, jungle gym. And if the weather turns bad – no worries – they even have indoor entertainment. The older and more dexterous kids can enjoy the console games. Bored teens can stare at the TV. All while mom and dad decide between the beef- or chicken snitzel.

And with Amelia’s arrival, we too have become regular patrons of this family dining experience. She’s a cheap age now, still too small to eat a child size portion. So I order my meat and ask for veggies. There’s usually a choice of two or three. I load up a side plate with sweet pumpkin, cheesy broccoli and little gem squash, and the two of us have our fill.

I’m still a bit wary with putting her on the trampoline. But I know she’ll jumpy-jump as soon as she gets a grip with this whole walking thing.

In 6 days Amelia turns 1. A full One Year Old. And the cliché is old and overused, but that’s why it’s called a cliché: time has just gone too fast. And some nights, not fast enough. 🙂

Not having a proper party this year for various reasons. But I’m still baking her cake for the daymom she’s at and making party pfavours for the kids there. Practiced chocolate cake recipe that Mom got from her mom… Delish but I still managed to get it stuck in the pan, lol.
