Terrible Two??

Not only did we hit the terrible two’s early, but we are also going to have TWO of them soon. We are still not sure HOW it happen but we are going to have a baby. I’m just over the 8 weeks pregnant. And Sky picked up on it immediately. She’s sort of freaking me out. We never mentioned to her that I’m pregnant but as soon as I take a nap (I do a lot of those) she will lift up my top, but her ear against my tummy and says: babbie, babbie. She even tries to feed the babbie!


We are still in shock (well I am) and I’m taking it very slowly at the moment. The doctor is worried about my age (apparently I’m pass my sell by date) but everything seems to be okay. We have to do tests every 2 weeks at this stage but we know it’s for the best.

This is creating a whole new dimension in our lives. There is so much to think about – we are going to have two children – one white, one black. How do we make sure that neither of them ever feel they are not real siblings. How do we manage my family? Some still won’t accept Sky, but I’m sure they’ll want to be part of this grandchild’s world. (Well I’m being presumptuous here). BUT I won’t allow this, as we are a package deal. Here I am so thankful to my dad and stepmom. They have really been so supportive and are so proud to become a grandparents again.


So yes it’s exciting, but also I have so much on my mind. I keep telling myself – ONE DAY AT A TIME. It will all work out in the end, if it’s not right, it’s not the end…..

  1. I still can’t get over the fact of how drastically your life changed in the past few years – from a desperately unhappy marriage, seeking Leon (without knowing it) to being happily married, a mom and soon a mom to two! I am so happy for you and for Leon – will keep you and your precious family in my prayers! The baby is lucky to have two awesome parents but most of all a big sister that rocks!

  2. Oh wow! Talk about complicated happiness!! Congratulations. hope your ‘expired’ sell-by-date won’t make a difference at all, even when it comes to when you’ve given birth and have to deal with BOTH babas! Congratulations again! So happy for you!
