Too lazy to crow today...

The mind is willing but the body is weak…

One of the more interesting things I’ve found with Jo’s pregnancy is she still thinks she is as spritely as she was before baby took up residence.

So in her mind going for a walk should be an easy task – but oh no, those mole hills become mountains, those short streets become long highways and the need for ‘just a quick rest’ becomes more and more the norm.

Now tasks as simple as getting out of bed, dressing in the morning are becoming a two person job. And because bending down is an option not on the menu anymore, things that tend to be dropped accidentally like the TV remote, cutlery, food etc… stay down until I can get to them. Kinda like following a Hansel and Gretel breadcrumb trail through the house.

Took the baby to the movies the other day, it didn’t like the sound of machine gun fire – was all kicking about inside – good to know it has a healthy abhorance to weapons of mass destruction already.

that’s about it for now… more later

We went to Superman Returns – but luckily it didn’t induce labour
