Reality Check

You know how I said that life was getting back on track?

Well… That very night the toddler had his first real fever…

Followed by a cold developed by all the adults of the family…

Then a baby had a minor fever after getting his first shots…

And then the toddler developed a major cold with coughing/sneezing and an accompanying horribly bad emotional state (read: endless crying and whinnying).


It’s been fun here…

Life goes on...

I’ve been wanting to blog. I really have. But I just have so many other things I want to do. I mean, I’ve spent 9 months being sick. And now I have so much energy that sitting still in front of the computer is just not happening.

I mean… I’ve painted a second room in the house. All by myself. Cause I could. Cause I’ve spent nine months looking at that ugly old paint, hating it and being to sick to do anything about it.

And I really am not sleep deprived. At least most of the time. My second kiddo is an easy-going baby. He sleeps peacefully in his bassinet or the stroller. And he lets me drive around and take the toddler to the park.

I have even started to workout again. Only to discover that my body has turned into some kind of mash that refuses to move as directed, or get out of bed the morning after… But I shall persevere, cause there’s no way I’m planning to look like a kangaroo for the rest of my life. And so I diligently plug in the TurboJam DVD into the player every other day or so, and attempt to kick without falling over…

And today I finally went back to my dad’s place to start working on the secret project again.

Yes, life is getting back on track again…

And it is good :-)

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

The Beginnings

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
