PottyMouthMama: Where The Bloody Hell Are You?
I've started fifty million different posts this weekend. And then got disenchanted with each and left them writhing in boredom in my drafts.
This weekend is a bit haphazard. Matt's studying, so I'm parenting solo just for the day. And it just happened to coincide with the commencement of toilet training for Tiny. This climaxed today, while at the library, when Tiny was sitting in a (thankfully) vinyl beanbag. Lucky for me (and her) I had a spare change of clothes. What was I thinking hauling Tiny out on her debut of new knickers? I don't know peeps, but if I had to hang for much longer in our messy home, I would have done some damage to the dishpig aka the dishwasher. We've been searching for swimmers for the Doctor. I've been tidying and re-organising our bedroom. I've been washing. I've been doing a whole lotta boring stuff. I am inspiring, non?
Here are some random facts about me:
Reading - Slow Death by Rubber Duck: Rick Smith/Bruce Lourie
Have you read this book? It's pretty intense. And insane what we humans have created in our bid to 'improve' things. We're just killing ourselves. Classy.
+ simultaneously reading: Naturally Better Kids: Written by a Melbourne mama, Kristen Morrison, this book is inspiring, amazing, and just bloody awesome. I'll write more about this later in the week. And you can click over and read more about Kristen. She's intelligent and a beautiful mama - I just can't say enough good things about her.
Watching - Offspring. This is the only thing I am watching religiously. It's one of the best Australian programs I've seen since 'Love My Way'. And Don Hany? PHWOAR. And Asher Keddie? Delightfully mesmerising and goofy. She is D to the VINE!
Eating - (too much of) this new Cadbury Bar of Plenty - I've tried both the Berry & Shortcake and Roast Hazelnuts and Honey Roast Cashews. I have to tell you, I am nutty for the nuts. But I should go to some sort of rehab for chocolate addicts. I hear Betty Crocker's Rehab is particularly good?
Listening - Lady of the Sunshine - Angus Stone's 'solo' album. Beautiful.
What has kept you busy this weekend?
