and now time for some reading

I finally got back to doing some reading again this week. It was good to suddenly find that all my work was done and I wasn't dead tired and sleepy, so I sat in bed and read a bit of a book. It was a good feeling, a new feeling and one that I will not take for granted again. Having a child is such an eventful and powerful experience, some might even compare it to going for drug rehab treatment in the sense that it is a bit of a shock, as to how exhausting it actually is, how time-consuming it is, and how you really have no time for yourself. But best and more surprisingly of all, it's something that one does happily, apart from a few grumpy moments when one has to wake up in the middle of the night.

ha ha.. I like the 'drug rehab' comparison. Its truly time consuming.. The bigger they grow.. the more the fun.. the more interesting the questions.. the size of probably also grows.. :-)

Shoe size is directly proportional to trouble size!!
