10 point update

  1. Thanks to everyone who pinged about my whereabouts to make me get off my butt and post.
  2. About 4 weeks to go to the D-day. Things are fine! Nothing much to write home about except work has ^peaked^ since I'm taking off soon.
  3. Baby names are being short-listed. That's the minimum amount of prep we need to do before he arrives I guess. Should tell you much about the general lack of preparation here.
  4. We are thinking of ourselves as parenting experts and being so relaxed about everything this time around. I'm sure the second one is going to be poles apart from the first one just to teach us a lesson.
  5. Got professional house cleaning done for the first time using the whale-like physique as an excuse.
  6. Scout talks nineteen to the dozen and is generally an easy-going toddler. But he reminded us that he is still very much a toddler by having a major major mother of all meltdowns at one of the parent-teacher meets in his daycare. I really understood what parents mean when they say they want the earth to open up and swallow them that instant.
  7. Nesting instinct is kicking in. I NEED space-saving STORAGE SOLUTIONS.
  8. My masala dabba is forever lacking stuff these days. If I remember to buy mustard from the store, I forget to buy jheera or something like that. Waiting for the mom to get here to fix such stuff.
  9. Was thrown 3 babyshowers, many thanks to friends and co-workers. This second one better not complain about any lack of attention.
  10. FB feeds flooded with Endhiran fandom. Anyone going to the FDFS?
Alright, folks! That's all from here. Nothing exciting really, and I hope it stays that way for a few more weeks. See you around!
