A Tale Of Three C-Sections - Wind in a Letterbox

I’m not sure why other people are so interested in a woman’s birth choice, and why you’re seen as less of a mom if you’ve had a C-section. (I was going to link to an article about this, but I don’t want to give the writer any more attention.) An acquaintance asked me the other ...

A Letter To My Son

A Letter To My Son - Wind in a Letterbox

My sweet boy, Today we finally get to meet you. I can’t wait to hold you in my arms, to see your face and feel your tiny fingers grip mine. For months I have felt you move inside me; gentle flutters at first, getting stronger and harder as you’ve grown and pushed and turned around. ...

Choosing A Name For Baby - Wind in a Letterbox

At different stages of my life, I had chosen specific names for my future children. In my teens, I decided my daughter would be called Catherine – the fault of Emily Brontë. (Wuthering Heights is still one of my favourite novels.) In my early twenties, I wanted an Elizabeth – this time thanks to Jane ...

Hello From The Other Side (Of The First Trimester) - Wind in a Letterbox

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. Not because life has been super busy – well, not unusually busy considering my two Energiser Bunny girls. I’ve actually even gotten back into the habit of midday naps most days. If I don’t have that hour or so of rest, then I’m dead on my feet by ...

Keep Calm; It's A Boy - Wind in a Letterbox

In six week’s time, I’m going to be mom to a boy. At one of the early scans, my gynae said he was pretty sure it was a boy. And I hoped that at the next scan, he’d say it was actually a girl – but he didn’t. When he pointed out Peanut’s “credentials” and ...

Pregnancy - Not What I Expected - Wind in a Letterbox

When I was younger, I had this romanticised version of pregnancy. I wanted at least four children, whom I’d birth naturally, of course, because why else would God have given me these hips? My mother popped out four kids, even giving an aerobics class while in labour with one of my brothers. So how hard ...

{Friday Favourites} Baby Shower Gifts - Wind in a Letterbox

Peanut will be here in less than three weeks! But who’s freaking out? My mom organised a baby shower for me recently and I thought I’d share some of the gifts we received. I’ve had baby showers for all my children, though I know the idea of multiple baby showers is frowned upon by some. ...

Essentials For Surviving Pregnancy - Wind in a Letterbox

If you read last week’s post, you’ll know I haven’t enjoyed any of my pregnancies. In the last stretch of what is definitely my final pregnancy, I thought I’d share some of the things that have gotten me through. 1. A preggie pillow This is a large, banana-shaped pillow that makes sleeping slightly more comfortable. ...

Homeschooling While Pregnant?

Account Suspended

When we started homeschooling last year, we knew we wanted another baby but we didn’t think too much about what would happen if I got pregnant again. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know that I’ve been using Learning the Alphabet and Reading the Alphabet with the girls. We got off ...

One of the exciting things about preparing for the arrival of Peanut was letting the girls help me pack his hospital bag a few weeks ago. Despite the countdown chart we’ve been using to mark the time, Emmy thought that packing the bag meant I was going to the hospital that day to have him ...
