back to bonbah

owl bum, originally uploaded by joannevc.

I’ve never been very good at keeping up this blog and over the past 8 months I haven’t been very good at keeping up with much of anything except a certain little boy. But it’s time to get back into the swing of things albeit a different set of things. My world has now been totally babyfied and I am 100% besotted. As everyone says nothing can prepare you for parenthood and it’s true nothing compares, it’s wonderful and it’s all consuming. My baby’s not a Gina Ford baby or a Baby Whisperer baby, he’s not a BLW baby or an Annabel Karmel die-hard. He sleeps when he’s tired and eats when he’s hungry. Sometimes he guzzles mushed up food and sometimes he’s not having any of it, sometimes he gnaws on broccoli florets and sometimes he shouts at them. I couldn’t tell you what he’ll be doing at 4am tomorrow or at 2pm the next day. He is (and I’m completely unbiased) the best baby ever, he is a million times better than I ever thought a baby could be and I had pretty high expectations. But he’s obviously a bit hard to plan a work schedule around other than planning on not getting anything non-baby done while he’s awake. So be it.

There is alot going on in this city for kids and alot of it is free, for the moment anyway. So I’m hoping to share the things I find here so if anyone else happens upon this blog they can take advantage of it as it’s often hard to find out where and when things are happening. I’d also like to keep up the original purpose of this blog by talking about the interesting and inspirational design and craft that I come across.

  1. thanks Francis, I think Jeff might give it a go tomorrow in fact. I always feel a bit sorry for the odd dad that comes along to the playgroups so it’s nice to know there are dedicated activities.

    Letitia, he is definitely an awesome little guy and looks a fair bit like his uncle and oldest cousin – not sure if that comes through in the photos. I am hoping to squeeze him back into the owl pants once winter comes round again, but not sure that’s going to happen.
