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!

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? original.gif

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.
