Introducing: Expensive Mistakes and Cheap Thrills

1. Post a picture of your kid(s).
Here's my boy. Troy Riley Shepherd. 9 weeks old.

2. Tell us all 3 things we wouldn't know about you.
1. I'm vegetarian, but I love Bovril.
2. I went to a sangoma while I was pregnant - to find out if I was having a girl/boy. Ordinary doctors couldn't tell me. The sangoma told me I was having a boy and that I'd have to have a caesarian because there would be complications with the umbilical cord. She was right.
3. I'm scared of Kreepy-Krawlies. I have to remove them from the pool before I swim.

3. Tell us some things we wouldn't know about your kid(s).
Hmmm....he's still pretty new, so he doesn't really have any cute traits and hasn't really said anything funny yet.
He cant suck his bottle and push a putty at the same time. He doesn't have enough pressure to do both.

4. What quote/saying best describes the way you feel about being a mommy?
"Most of us become parents long before we have stopped being children." ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966

5. Who's your Famous Mommy Role Model (haha, like there actually are any good celebrity mommies)
Britney Spears. Haha. Not. Do feel sorry for her though. I'd also lose the plot if I had my boy taken from me....

6. If you could have one wish granted for your kid(s), what would it be?

That he doesn't have his dad's temper - so I'd wish for him the patience to deal with people and frustrating situations.

I just googled "sangoma". That's so cool - I'm going to totally research it more...
