Alternatively alternatively alternatively titled – Because I can
Recycled alternatives from the last post because I’m an alternative kind of girl.
Because I stuffed up and they are totally more appropriate on this post.
And they kind of almost make sense on this one. As opposed to the previous one.
Following on from my previous post of woe, I bring you part 2.
In the interests of accuracy and full disclosure, I explained that, in my case, the second baby came out next.
He was not remotely jazzed by the idea of being a whole 5 minutes older.
She was not remotely pissed by the idea of being a whole 5 minutes younger.
Fingers crossed it has the desired / expected effect when they’re a little older and every single second of age counts.
I was disappointed. Let down.
I admit, I had attempted to enact sibling anarchy and failed.
Before you judge – this took place while #1Hubby was away working in Noumea.
I know, right? As if anyone goes there to work. If I didn’t manage our bank accounts I’d be convinced he’d booked his own junket just to get away from all the awesomeness that is our family unit / his workplace (he works from home, lucky guy!).
Anywho, on top of everything else that has happened recently, it was just an utterly shit 5 minutes of my day….
We were eating dinner at home, freezing cold (not in a hotel in Noumea, fancy wanky cocktail in hand).
And, the kids were whining and faux vomiting over the injustice that is being served broccoli and cabbage in the same meal.

And, I had to man-up and attempt to calmly sweep the rodent outside while barking at the kids to STFU and eat their bloody cabbage and be thankful for it, because there are many starving rodents out there who would love the chance to eat it….
So, you know, I think I did pretty well. All things considered.
#1Hubby has since returned home. Scared to show his tropical island tan. Happy to parent.
I’ve enjoyed a weekend of sleeping in.
I’m all geared up for another week of attempting to regain my wine buds.
