Let’s be honest, you’d rather watch something that read something wouldn’t you? So here’s the vlog version of this week:
Here’s the link to the petition, it would mean a lot if you signed it and then shared it.
If you don’t want to watch that, then I guess I should consider writing something, this is a blog after all. And since I don’t edit my videos, I simply pause and then resume, I probably missed some stuff that I wanted to say, so I guess I can use this space to fill in the gaps.
Oh, and here’s Isabelle trying to bite my nose:
I’ve been left alone with her before, but since we’ve had her I can probably count the number of times this has happened on one hand. Rachel is, after all, on maternity leave, and also breastfeeds. Not only that, she doesn’t really like to be away from Isabelle, so doesn’t exactly want to leave her, even if it is with me. Of course, I see no problem with this, I don’t actually mind being with the two of them.
There’s still a tiny part of me that gets slightly edgy at the prospect of being left with Isabelle. I can handle pretty much everything she can throw at me these days, but I still get a little stressed if she’s screaming for a feed. Luckily, I can say, I had an amazing time with her. In that short space of time we managed to read, play in the ball pit, have some tummy time, and to end it she fell asleep with me swaying and singing. It’s a long way from the one time Rachel left me with Isabelle, in the midst of my postnatal depression, and she spent the entire time screaming at me as I thought about how much I hated her. This was finally how it’s supposed to be. Me and my daughter having fun together and enjoying each others company.
I look forward to the next time it’s just me and her. Not that I’m saying I want Rachel to leave the house more often, I’m perfectly happy actually seeing my wife, which is a good thing. But it won’t be long (around four months) until she’s back in work, and it’ll be just me and Isabelle a lot more often.
That’s all for this week. As always, keep an eye out on the Facebook page (there might even be a little competition coming soon, so look out for that).
Oh, and whilst I’m here. I’m now on Pinterest. I’ll be honest, I don’t really know what to do with it, other than make a few boards about some stuff, that seems to be the general idea. Here’s the link if you want to follow that: here.
