yep, still alive

Have kept my unbroken streak of seeing Star Wars movies for the first time in the cinema. In this case, that means Kidlet Secunda has also been to her very first Star Wars movie. She slept through most of it, but watched a couple of scenes in fascination while I changed her nappy.

On that subject... HELL YES was that a Star Wars movie! WOO!

Life has been an endless series of Christmas events (including five different present opening occassions for Kidlet Primus). BUSY. We're now about to go away for a week with my family. Not sure if this will be relaxing, or extra busy. We shall see.

I have downgraded my phone (to a paper diary, an iPod, and a old-style mobile that actually makes phone calls as its primary function), and upgraded my car (to a hatchback with parking assistance, bluetooth, cruise control, and, oh yes, the ability to fit two children - kind of important, that). Very happy with both decisions.

Having so much fun dressing Kidlet Secunda up in pretty outfits. Girls clothes are fun! Plus, dresses are so much easier for nappy changing. I can see why boys used to wear them pre-toilet training.

The entire world has given me chocolate for Christmas. It's yummy, but not terribly good for me... Oh well... *munches*

eek, she lives. I was wondering if exhausted motherhood had swallowed you up. Glad to see you're still with us. :-)

Why downgrading your phone- were you becoming a slave to your device? Were the kids showing far too much interest in your 'toy'? :-)
Does the 'parking assistance' mean it parks the car on its own? Because that would be the coolest feature *ever*, and one I'd definitely consider upgrading for.

If you want easiest nappy changing of all, just go the summer route and only dress bub in a nappy, don't even bother with a dress. :-)( I loved Summer for that reason only- no clothes at all in the way of changes. :-) Winter with clip-up onesies and pants was less fun.)

You sure do post a lot less, now that you have two kids. Anyone would think they're keeping you busy. Will you find the time to post cute sibling photos this year, still? I think you've posted a total of one baby photo so far... :-)

(Anonymous) 2016-12-29 10:16 am (UTC)(link) Good luck with that. Let me know if it happens to you, as I'm still waiting, here. :-)

So have you packed the phone away for future use, or sold it to remove all temptation?

Ah, the beeping. Very handy. Forwards too, or just reverse? I'd love forwards, but fear I'd never get into a park as the sensors would be on nonstop beep and I'd never dare to go in, despite it probably being overzealous...

Ugh, ours did that too- no charging. Would say fully charged, but switch off as soon as unplugged. New battery no different. Recycled, and a new phone bought. :-/
