what i have learnt.

So life is some what back to normal. And I have been thinking…these past two weeks, babysitting my nephews, have certainly taught me a few things.…

1) Being a parent is darn hard.
2) Kids can literally drive you crazy one second…
3) and make your day the very next.
4) Good friends from your past will still be there for you now, no matter how much time has passed.
5) I can have an hour long argument with a four year old, and still not win it.
6) TV is a Mom’s best friend.
7) Never, ever, keep the sweets on the bottom shelf…mind you…they will find them no matter where you keep them.
8) You get over dirty nappies very quickly.
9) Wetwipes are the best invention ever.
10) and so is Woolworths.
11) Sweets and chocolate will get kids to do anything.
12) No matter how many dummies you have, you can never find them when you need them. Note to self: Start buying them now.
13) My husband was right all along…I have no patience
14) and he surprisingly does.
15) There are still complete strangers out there who will go out there way to help you…
16) and yet the people who you should be relying on…don’t even bother.
17) My husband is going to make an amazing dad
18) and we make a great team together.
19) I cannot wait to be a mom.

Sjoe. Am very glad you have passed the

I dont know if I ever want kids

phase. You had us very concerned. Your sis did you a huge favour because what you learnt in two weeks usually takes many years (and tears).

btw - the guys ALWAYS have more patience IMHO....
