Parenthood

So, the kid doesn’t like beetroot…

We are attempting to feed the kid freshly-made (pureed) vegetables in all flavours – you know, a balanced diet. Sometimes we also try new tastes in bought foods from Purity.

Today the nanny tried to feed her beetroot. It was all kinds of murder and mayhem. This kid definitely doesn’t like beetroot.

Bedtime

We are trying to get the kid to sleep through the night – because we are tired of feeling like zombies. It has been working sort-of the last week…except for a few snags.

We have a baby monitor, which means any movement or scream and I’m awake. She wakes up a few times during the night and just moans and cries a bit before dozing off again. I have also caught her twice just after midnight having a big, fat jol with whatever she can bash around in her cot.

Crawling

Her crawling skills are improving little by little. If you incentivize her with a toy at the end of the “walk”, she really performs. She also realised that she can lunge the last bit to get to the end sooner.

They really grow up so fast

Babies don’t need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach… it pisses me off! I’ll go over to a little baby and say ‘What are you doing here? You haven’t worked a day in your life!’ Steven Wright

I think babies need a holiday from growing up, teething and driving us up the walls.

We didn’t go to the beach house because the 7 hour drive with 2 cats and a screaming baby sounded like a nightmare. We got the nanny in for most of the weekend, because she is teething and neither one of us are sleeping well…and well, we also need a break.

How was your long weekend?

I am a Johannesburg based freelance writer, social media manager - and of course share bits from my life with you on this blog. We have 2 kids through surrogacy and 3 black cats.
