Big news

First of all, apologies to all those who are accustomed to my regular posts, you've probably noticed that they are not so regular any more. The reasons for that are many, but in short, my life has turned upside down, so much has happened in the last few weeks that I really don't know where to start.

I (unexpectedly) started working again, the offer literally came overnight. I'm still pretty confused, it's weird to go to work after I had been stay-at-home-mom for four years. The job itself is great, but I still haven't managed to learn how to coordinate business and private life - we are not just used to eat kale from the day before. And more great news are that I will finally manage to get a place in a kindergarten (daycare) for my kids, which I couldn't do before, because of stupid administrative rules that impede the right of every child to socialize. In other words, in my country your kids can't go to kindergarten, even for a few hours, if you are SAHM.

More good news include the fact  they are starting to go there on 2nd May because we'll enroll them in a private nursery. Specifically, due to the lack of places in kindergartens, our city equalized the cost of private and municipal kindergartens! Of course, no one in the city government or in the kindergarten, had a hearing for the fact that first days should be in a time when mother is not working and she has enough free time and not when she starts to work and needs to prove herself on a new job. But this will pass eventually, and the Older actually cann't wait to go, because she is indeed a very sociable child.

We also have another great news - we are expecting! Our family will get a new member, in early November. Now I am 12 weeks pregnant just about time to announce it. :) At first I had morning sickness (often lasting the entire day), but now I feel great (blissful second quarter), so that was another great timing for returning to work.

Girls are happy with the news, although I think that The Younger does not understand yet what it actually means, but when we said the news about the baby to The Older, she immediately said:  "Let's name the little brother Lightning McQueen, and the sister Sally!" All true fans of Cars will understand what she meant by that.

The other day I saw her playing with Barbie Snow White and she tried to put a small figurine of Snow White under her dress, and since it did not work, she told me, "Mom, this dress no longer fits  her, she'll need a maternity dress!" Aaaah, my little smarty.

News in our lives do not mean that we stopped playing, the only thing is that the mom just does not have time to write about it. When I catch some free time, I ought to write you how we made ​​a dragon out of a plain plastic bag and flowers from egg cartons.

We are also planning a Smurftastic birthday party, so it will also be discussed as soon as I catch a break.

Also, I would like to announce that tomorrow will be my "SITS day" and my blog will be featured in this great blogging community with over 40,000 registered users. If you write a blog or just thinking about it, be sure to visit them. And tomorrow you can see me in the role of a "featured blogger". 

I wish happy playing to all of you, and I hope that we will soon accustom to the new situation, so that the posts will be published with the same frequency as before.

    I've never seen a Smurfs party or had anyone request it. It sounds amazing!!
    If you get to busy, (not to be advertising it on your page) but with pregnancy, new job children and expecting, it can be hard to plan a party but I do something called "Party in a Box" that you might like to try. Check it out: http://www.kgstyleinc.com/#!event-essentials/c1guj

    Happy SITS Day Again!

  30. Congratulations on the SITS Day!
    Oh, and of course, on the baby! :) The little ones are so special....I only wish all my nieces and nephews stayed babies...but no, now they're talking and walking and growing up way too fast. But oh well, they're almost more fun now that they can snitch on their parents! ;) Gives me blackmail material. ;)

    Ha, I love your blog, thanks for sharing with us!
