It is Tuesday again which means it is time for the `Some days..` post. Remember to check out Lulu`s blog today too (she got me started on all this).
Some days I look at pictures of celebrities like Miranda Kerr who`ve given birth recently and get super depressed...
... but most days I realise Miranda is a freak of nature (albeit a very nice one I`m sure), then I look at people around me, and the rare celebrity like Pink who`ve given birth recently, and decide there is hope.
Some days I don`t spend a single cent (or yen) all day! Most days I buy at least a drink from the vending machine on my walk with Aiden (and maybe an ice-cream from the conbini).
Some days I use my cell-phone to send texts to Eve or 1 or 2 other friends in Japan. Most days my cell-phone is a cute pink paperweight on my desk.
Some days I drink 2-3 litres of water. Most days I manage 1.5 litres of water and several glasses of cold oolong tea.
Some days Aiden gets wind in his tummy and is fussy and miserable in the evenings. Most days he is the genki smiley baby that we all adore and is a lot of fun to be around!
Some days Aiden is super efficient and spends just 8-10 minutes feeding every 2 hours. Most days (recently) he is much more leisurely about things, and spends 15-20 minutes feeding every 2 hours.
Some days I wonder if 2 people from such different cultures and backgrounds can live and raise a child successfully together. Most days I think that Aiden is one of the luckiest babies in the world to learn about both Japanese and Kiwi life. Each country has so much to offer, that he is sure to get great things from at least one of them!
Some days I love a bit of rain to cool things down. Most days - like today - I wish the rain would stop, even for just 30mins so we could get outside for a walk!
There may be a typhoon headed our way, so batten down the hatches and rent a good DVD everyone!!
