Things I can't do because I don't have ovaries
Get an invite to a Royal Wedding Party. You know who you are!
As I sit in the Doctors waiting room looking at Yve grinning away like she hasn’t a care in the world. It was a different story less than than 12 hours ago after her last feed of the night. It was 10.30pm, Goodfellas was 3/4 done and I was burping her after a surprisingly good bottle. She didn’t burp much, but that was normal for this feed. As I placed her in her cot, the shrieking...
Just had a 20 min powernap with the princess before picking up her brothers. Didn’t do jack… Where is my Mother!?
Finding Underwear in the folding pile.
I remember when it wasn’t hard finding a pair of drawers in the pile of clean clothes. Now 4 kids later, it isn’t that easy. Back in the day when there was the 2 of us, I used to “accidentally” put on my wife’s panties, but that was it. After a big day in the garden I had a few settlers and went to jump in the shower.

We have shoes that have the soles worn through and pajamas that have the elbows worn through as they have been through 3 children. Now Yve has thrown a spanner in the works (so selfish).
