I know, I know. Two posts in one day - it's not decent. But I just had to relay this conversation I had a few minutes ago.
A friend of mine, C, is newly pregnant - for the first time. C has the address of this blog but I don't think she ever reads it; however, if you are doing darling, I'm laughing with you (or with the 'you' you will be in 6 months time when the baby arrives) - not at you...
C: "... and can you believe it, one of my friends who's just given birth has someone to come into her house 10 hours a day for the next 3 months, just to help with the baby!"
Me (thinking, the lucky devil): "Really? Sounds like a good idea. If someone offers to pay for that for you, I suggest you bite their hand off."
C: "You can't be serious. I mean, feeding a baby every 3 hours and preparing a meal - how hard can it be?"
I was like that once.
