Things I have learnt this week

  • The "week of the dead frogs" (which I never blogged about because I actually felt sorry for you all) was apparently more than a week... one month on and I am still finding about a frog a day. Want photos? Oh, one's a toad, does that still count?
  • My kids have far more willpower than I give them credit for.
  • I am getting fatter every day.
  • I have 2 packets of Rennie's that expired in 2007, they must be from the great Rennie freebie stash of 2006. They love to give free Rennie's to pregnant women apparently.
  • This baby is not a fan of anything resting on my belly, especially older brothers.
  • I know what flavour baby we are having... but I'm not telling.
  • Doctors can charge just about whatever they want if it's associated with the phrase "or I will unfortunately not be able to deliver your baby"... So you're going to leave it in there? I don't think it'll like that.
  • My mum wont eat a spider.
  • I go through a lot of Tuscan Seasoning.
  • I can't remember pretty much anything at the moment.
  • I'm always hungry (so not something I realised this week but I just thought I would add it in anyway).
  • My kids will always find new ways to make me laugh.

Now for today's artistic contribution from Lion...

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, if you see a crocodile don't forget to scream.

Lion's new verse

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, if you see a giraffe, don't forget to laugh.

Then you need to explain 15 times that you rhymed giraffe and laugh and giraffe and laugh and it rhymes and you put it in the song and it rhymes...


  1. I try to avoid the spider eating too, personally, unless there's a good reason for it...I hope the doctor lets your baby out! ;)

  2. sounds like quite an enlightening week! :)

  3. We have lady bug carasses from time to time, but not lots of frogs! ... love the new verses to the song. Creative kiddos!


  4. LOVE the new verses to the old song!

    Your mom is a wise woman!

    You are suppose to get fat right now. Enjoy it, because 3 years after your baby makes it's presence into the world, it will be THEN that you are fat. Well, probably not YOU. I am certainly not speaking from experience. Nope, surely not.

    I think you are so mean to not tell us what sex of that little muffin is! I'm thinking girl. I am basing that on nothing. Just would love to read your blog after you have a girl and you find yourself not knowing how to raise a girl after having two boys. Whoops, there I go again talking about myself.

    You leave the best comments! I promise to take pictures the next time my husband is craving a fake tan! ;0)

  5. Love that extra verse to "Row row".

    Has your doctor actually used that phrase? He's very brave to threaten a pregant woman in that way .... lucky he hasn't been knocked unconscious by one (or more) of them.

  6. I got very excited when I discovered you can buy tuscan seasoning in the giant size jar.

  7. I hope someone will let your baby out. Sorry to hear mum will not eat spiders. Not very fun at all, huh?

    And you're not telling us what flavor this little one is? Dang it! I hope its strawberry. I like strawberry!

  8. Oh dear - dead frogs (& toads). Sounds like you had a fun week.
    Glad you are going well - you are a tease though - which flavor - have you told your mum?

  9. @ Mum-me: That doctor would never get knocked out by a pregnant woman, he is such a 'pretty-boy' they all swoon and say in a dreamy voice... 'Yes Dr Geoff Jansz, whatever you say Dr. Geoff'

  10. LoL, I think I will side with your mum and not eat a spider either.

  11. A pregnant woman once told me that all women fall in love with their obstetrician, so of course he is safe. Maybe that's one reason men still want to be obstetricians in spite of the midnight call outs.
    As for the spider, I would walk on hot coals for my kids and grandkids, but if I had to eat a spider. . . well. . it's been nice knowing you. Sorry.

  12. @Mum-me- The doc hides that little gem in his paperwork where you only find it when you remember the morning of your 'time to pay the big money' appointment that you forgot to put the money into the right account and you search crazily through trying to find out exactly how much the bill will be and if you would need to leave just one child or two as a deposit until you could put the money in the right account to pay the bill.

  13. And wolf, he does not look like geoff jansz. If he did I'd be worried he was gonna serve up our baby instead of deliver it. If he starts to ask if I prefer salad or vegetables on the side I'm outta there!


I'd love to hear from you, even if it's just to say "Hi, I stopped by for a read today"
