It came upon me so unexpectedly that I completely forgot to make New Years resolutions that I would undoubtedly break at some point between now and Spring. Hey, at least I can't disappoint myself now, right? Hallelujah to that I say.
Here is a sneaky peak into what 2009 holds for us over here, try not to get too jealous.
First up: Potty Training
Why our dear Father in Heaven didn't send these little people to live with us completely toilet trained is beyond me, seriously.
It brings out all the worst parts of my character and magnifies them a gazillion-fold.
Thomas was dry both day and night by day 4 (bless his heart) but still by pee on the floor number 8, in the second hour, of morning number one, I was seriously contemplating throwing both him and myself under a passing bus. It was so tempting.
But SuperRob came to the rescue and saved the day.
The child responsible for such antics as these? (Disclaimer: Not a link for the faint hearted or weak stomached).
Is freedom of bodily functions really what we want to give that little hellion?
Plus no SuperRob on hand to save the day this time.
So I'll be treating myself to some of this, you know, obviously, because I'm worth it.
But mostly because I'll no doubt be needing it, by the gallon.
Unless of course 3 months in we're still dealing with potty training. Light of potty training fortune please shine upon me.
Oh how I'll mourn for the first week at the loss of my firstborn.
2009 could also be the year we add a new addition to the Siswick family, so watch this space. After all what better way to celebrate getting your house entirely baby kit free than by having another, right?
Which will speedily turn to total jubilation followed by the making of a chart to countdown the days to September 2010 when Eli will be joining him there full time too. Ah good times.
But I may have exploded from over consumption of Cadbury's creme eggs before any of the above actually occur, but come on, what a way to go!
