I had almost given up blogging. You see, I don’t consider myself to be a very prolific writer (or typist) and I battle to articulate my thoughts and ideas into words on paper. Or, at least, that is what I tell myself. The truth is I have been so caught up in life and work and being a wife and mommy, that I haven’t had time to blog. But, lately I have been missing it and thought I would pick things up again. That’s if I still have an audience.
Hello???? Anybody out there???
Anyway, this blog is about our dear little Baby Girl who is turning four soon. I can’t believe it. I remember a quote I heard when she was first-born – something that aided me through the long sleepless nights – “the days drag by, but the years fly by.”
And that quote has always stayed with me. I don’t know how hubby and I made it through those early years of non-sleep, no support, lack of finances and not having a clue as to what we were actually doing (yup, parenting is 90% winging it, and 10% knowing what to do – I think I had to wing it 100% of the time), but I digress….
The years have flown and Baby Girl will be turning four at the end of June. Being a totally and perfectly freezing winter, we have booked an indoor venue for her party and she will be having a Barbie themed party. I’m not quite sure who is more excited – little Baby Girl or me. What does it matter – I’m hoping to give her a fantastic party.
And she’s asked for Barbie’s for her birthday – thanks http://www.takealot.com.
And party decor – thanks http://www.bidorbuy.com.
Don’t you just love online shopping. Flip, I’m even doing my groceries online. Yes, I hate shopping THAT much.
And she is growing up to be a beautiful little girl. With gorgeous blonde hair, and piercing blue eyes. And a wicked sense of humour. I worry about her being an only child, but she is so happy and well-balanced, that I guess that makes my worry a bit of a moot point.
I can’t give any guarantees, but I will try blog more regularly. I have really been missing it of late, but work and life has just gotten in the way.
