Having to be grown up

*Sulk*

Some things about being a proper grown up.... I NO like!

Last night I took out my nipple bar for the last time. I've had that piercing for around 10 years and it's been one of my favs. But it is hardly suitable for someone who will be breastfeeding in the next few weeks. It's not safe or hygienic for baby, and will most likely get in Wiggles way when trying to feed anyway. Plus I doubt it would fit in the expressor when I come to going back to work - not without getting jammed and causing me to make an embarrassing trip to A&E...

So it's gone.

Sure... I could get it re-done once Wiggle is off the boob, but if we're going to have more children - and lets face it, we probably are - it's just a waist.

It's not really a big deal, it's only jewellery after all. But it's also one step away from the kid I was and one step closer to the responsible adult I'm going to have to be. It's taken me more than 2 weeks from being told I would have to remove it to actually getting round to doing it.

I wonder how fast it will heal? I have images in my mind of milk coming out of the sides of the nipple now better that the tip!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
