Phew. Quite an gut-wrenching emotional day, completely out of the blue. I happened to read a very sad blog this morning about a Mom that lost her baby, then a sad, but brilliantly written blog post about someone I knew that passed away recently. And then Hopeful Mom’s post about Precious. There are no words.
1. I had coffee with a friend today that is due any day with her second baby. We became friends about 6 years ago when we were both battling infertility and now our kids are in the same school and we have become really good friends. We were discussing how far we have come and how much had changed in this time. I am incredibly grateful I got my head out the sand and went for IVF. Otherwise my life would be very different today!
2. School. I was very, very grateful when the kids finally got dropped off at school this morning. They had a whine-fest that started at 06h30 and did not stop until I don’t know when as it was still going on when I left them at school at 8h30. Mignon won the whine-award for the day. I eventually asked her: ‘Did you get out of bed on the wrong side?’ To which she looked at me solemnly looked at me and said: ‘Ja Mamma.’ Sigh.
3. I am extremely grateful I was on supper duty tonight. This is why: (that, allegedly, was TV time)
May everyone have a fantastic weekend!
