Introducing me

PS! For those with readers, sorry for all the edits, it kept losing my breaks! So, I've redone the post, hopefully it works this time.

OK, here goes... my first contribution to this blog. I don't know a lot of you on here, so here's a bit about me first...I'm Jeanette (now known as Jenty). I have 2 blogs, one is a photography blog, and the other is an outlet for me to vent.
LOL, I can't even figure out what to write here! Thankfully the first post is the obligatory meme!

1. Post a picture of your kid(s).

Ok, this one is VERY easy considering I take photos every SINGLE day! The problem is in the choice. These are my favourites this month.
This is Bradley, he's 5..
.Looking up
... and Connor, he's 16 months old

2. Tell us all 3 things we wouldn't know about you.

Oh crumbs, here comes the hard bits, considering a lot of me is in my blogs. I'm going to go back to pre-photo and ramblings blog here, not many people read my Livejournal blog, so the odds of you all knowing that history is very slim.
a. I only started blogging to keep friends overseas up-to-date with my goings on, but now I can't live without it. I've met the most amazing people online. I actually met most of my RL friends online, on a SA mother's forum. I've lost touch with most of my "old" pre-net friends, which is quite sad actually.
b. I try to learn one new thing every year. I wonder what I'm going to try and learn next year, this year it's been the DSLR (I think, can't think of anything new other than that).
c. I work in the Financial Services industry, and I'm a Business Analyst Manager and a Strategic Programme Manager - I do both - at the same time. And I enjoy it. I moan a lot about it, but I love that I'm constantly learning new things. I don't love that I manage people... that's the hardest part of my role. The minute I stop learning, I tend to resign and move on.

3. Tell us some things we wouldn't know about your kid(s).
a. Connor was a prem baby, I had him at 35 weeks and he was in NICU for 16 days. It was the hardest time of my life... juggling that and having to deal with Bradley and his questions about his baby at home. You'd never say that, if you had to see him now... he's huge and healthy!
b. Bradley is a tattle-tale at the moment. Poor Connor cannot do anything without Bradley coming to call me. Which is a good thing, considering Connor's already broken his collar bone!
c. When we took Bradley on his first seaside holiday when he was 4 months old, he (or rather we) ended up in hospital in Umhlanga for 4 days with gastro! That was a crap holiday!

4. What quote/saying best describes the way you feel about being a mommy?
Pass, I don't do quotes, sayings or songs for that matter! LOL!

5. Who's your Famous Mommy Role Model (haha, like there actually are any good celebrity mommies)

Pass again, I've never been a follower of celebs

6. If you could have one wish granted for your kid(s), what would it be?
That I will be able to provide the means for them to do whatever they want in life, and that they'll find something that they love doing (and not have to work for the sake of working)

That's it, hopefully someone found that interesting.

I didn't know all that about you Jenty.
Good luck with your new gig here.

Lovely, welcome :)

My son was not technically a preemie but he was very small and spent time in NICU also. That is such an unbearably awake time for mothers, I think.
