I’m back… I think….

A long time has passed since I last posted here. And, accordingly, a lot has happened.

In February we had a baby girl. We named her Cali.

Felix has just turned 2 and is developing so fast it is blowing my mind.

He really enjoyed his train themed birthday a couple of weeks ago.

Yummy choo choo!

While the kids are thriving I have been having trouble coping with life over the past year. It’s been a crazy roller coaster and I have recently decided that it’s time to get off. That doesn’t happen with a snap of the fingers. It happens with dedication towards self improvement and a steady search for inner peace.

I’m going to start writing here more often, with honesty and openness, about my struggles with my life and myself. While my intentions are good I will most likely have trouble keeping up consistent posting, but I think that it is a vital step in improving myself so I will do my best.  I’m also trying to improve my physical health by drinking more water and eating well, as I know that mental health and physical health are indelibly linked.

So, please, bear with me while I struggle and blather.

5 Reasons why I think my son is a puppy

 

Exhibit A

1. He chews on EVERYTHING.

Books, clothes, plants, hand rails, the pram straps, absolutely everything.

If he likes it, he chews on it. If he doesn’t like it, he chews on it. If it’s sparkly, he chews on it. If it makes noise, he chews on it. If it’s soft, he chews on it. If it’s hard, he chews on it. I have never seen him hold something in his hand for longer than 10-20 seconds without putting it in his mouth. I’ve watched him scrape the paint off those metal tins that Extra Mints come in. But his favourite things to chew on, by far, are shoes and anything that squeaks.

 

2. He loves getting air blown in his face.

He giggles, closes his eyes and pulls away, then immediately comes back for more. It’s like he can’t breathe while I’m doing it and it gives him this adrenalin hit that he LOVES.

 

3. While he can walk on two legs, he prefers to get around on all fours.

He is capable of walking upright ‘like a human’, I have witnessed it, but he will usually forgo the extra effort to just crawl instead.

 

4. He has mastered the art of ‘Sit’, ‘Stand’ and ‘Roll Over’, but needs to work a little on ‘Stay’.

This is about the same level of obedience that I have received from dogs I have owned through-out my life. And, as in all other cases, the likelihood of a correct response to a command is always greatly improved by the presence of treats and rewards.

 

5. He chases the cats.
