Reading too much into things...

I know, I know, I'm over thinking again (got that out if the way before I start)

Jack has started asking me about God. Which is fine. Only I don't believe in God. I wish I did a lot of the time and I have studied with a few different christian groups but I haven't had that 'moment' where I felt it was true. Still... This isn't about me. Jack says he does believe and wants to know more. I guess all the literature I gathered will come in handy. I'll support him if he wants to be a Christian.

Meantime, Tom is wrapping himself up in a fluffy pink world filled with cakes, shiny things, and My Little Pony (and has been for a long time now) and I also find myself wondering if he will be more into guys than girls when he's older. This is also not a problem for me or his dad and we will support him in his life too.

Thankfully the only thing George is concerned with is his new (2nd) tooth.

My thoughts may amount to nothing. Jack may or may not find god. Tom may or may not be gay. And I guess It's no big deal anyway. But as a parent I can't help but wonder and worry about how others will treat my kids. Loving god is becoming less accepted - bible bashers considered odd. Being gay is more accepted now but people are still hated for it.

I want my kids to be themselves and know that no matter who they are their mum & dad will always love them... There is no 'no matter who they are' about it. We love them. Full stop. I hope they can live in a world that will do the same.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
