They said time speeds up when you’re having fun. Q is 8.5 months now and sometimes when I look at him, its hard to believe that all that time has passed and we barely registered it. Of course, when we concertedly think back, I realize that its true that loads have happened and as a family we have indeed done loads.
This is what a typical day is like for us:
0700hrs: Q wakes by standing up in his cot and calling out for me to come get him.
0715hrs: I acede cos I usually spend about 15 minutes bargaining with the lil boss.
0720hrs: Milk #01.
0730hrs: Q poops in glorious fashion.
0735hrs: Invariably, its bath time.
0745hrs: Q plays by himself while I do my morning tackle of emails and work.
