Giving birth on TV

Is it just me, or over the last few years has their been an explosion of shows like One Born Every Minute? I'm not usually one for day time telly (it's usually kids TV through the day if the telly is on) but today I have a house full of poorly, sleeping kids so I thought I'd flick through the Old Idiot Box. I've stumbled across Maternity Ward shortly followed by Desperate Midwives. And yes, I'm watching!

Now I'll be honest, I LOVE OBEM! I've recorded the whole of the latest series and I am saving it for when I do get pregnant next (watching it any sooner than our planned TTC will have me flushing my pill by the 1st ad break). Can't help but wonder how I would feel if they came to our local maternity ward, if I was a mum-to-be about to give birth while they were hanging about with their cameras. Would I want to be on the show? It's no secret that I am an over-sharer, especially when it comes to TTC, pregnancy, and birth stories.... but there's a huge difference between writing a blog or posting in forums, and giving birth on national television.

Ok, there's a bit of me that would LOVE it! Maybe I should go and drop an email to Channel 4 now......

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…
