I know it's late and a Tuesday night to boot, but I really need to talk about some sort of inane crap, anyone interested?

C'mon I see a few lurkers! I'm pumping and typing with my left hand.
I prefer waking at 2 or 3am for overnight feeds... The TV is better!

Ah... Those were the days, pumping milk. Fun times. Well I am self medicating with gin tonight, just as well my pumping days are over.

Feels odd to say but yes I'm a mum now! My son is a month old. He has been awake waay too much today!

Oh, and home shopping at 2~3 am or 80s comedy reruns

Hmm an alcoholic drink does sound good but gin? I'm missing wine a bit at the moment.
So tell me, whats the best thing about being a mum to boys?

Needed heavy duty tonight, but big wine fan too. Being a mum to boys? Busy! But great, generally good fun, with a bit of frustration thrown into the mix. Challenging, but delightful.

That's good to hear (about the boys thing). It must be nice having a bunch of boys! Right now just looking after the one is enough for me to learn! There is so much I don't know yet. Learning while being sleep deprived seems a hard combination.
Well sorry to up and leave, I've gotta go cram in a couple of hours sleep. Jemstar I hope you can do the same soon.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
