It is winter and wet and not really that cold, but cold enough to say it is winter. We are operating on Code Red at this stage. I am not doing pregnancy well. It is hard work. I have one mission. To get my family through this unscarred. I am greatfull that it is winter and that life is busy. That way I do not feel to bad that we hardly get any beach time these days. I cannot trust myself to keep them safe when the whole ocean is there to swallow them. We do fun stuff at home, which by now, by the way, is a maze of toys and other random stuff. They build tunnels, out of old boxes, to each others rooms. Hannah moved into Bradley’s room, with all her favourite stuff, and Bradley joined in and moved to her room, and the result is caos. We do art, we sew, we bake. When it gets to much, I let them bath for as long as they want to. It keeps their busy minds occupied and it gives my body a rest.
This is a very great full time for us. We are cherishing every moment with our growing baby. We wait patiently, and we all do what we can to keep this baby safe. We are OK, and moments like these, give us new breath to take another step. To march on. To cherish life.
