What to expect when...

Having had the baby book in the loo for the past 2 weeks, it has done the trick of putting me off having another baby for a bit longer. I read, in the bath, the chapter on the first six weeks and it all seemed a little too recent to want to do it again. So, the book has been joined by my new copy of "What to expect... the toddler years". The previous version for pregnant women was my bible while I was pregnant, and this one is similarly practical, sensible and covers most eventualities.

The only problem, however, is that the appendix has a rather comprehensive list of all the awful diseases children can get with lots of bold letters scattered around to scare you. I am now, on Eve's behalf, becoming a hypochondriac. Reye syndrome anyone? I know all about it now and it is SCARY.

Random question. You are the only 'Mummy Blogger' I know who is not based in the UK so I tagged you to join the Round the World in 80 clicks crusade of Mummy Bloggers. Sorry and do ignore if this is not your thing. If you do fancy writing a post then read
http://badladies.blogspot.com/2009/03/world-according-to-mom.html and leave them a comment and a link back to me.

I don't know whats come over me to participate, not normally my thing at all, but I guess I'm feeling a bit of a lone Mummy blogger in the Balkans and am enjoying seeing some other bloggers out there too!

As I said, do feel free to ignore. I would.
