For those who missed the news I snuck into the comments on this post a few days ago, I am pregnant. Oh so pregnant and craving Cornflakes and cupcakes like a crazy woman. I’m doing a weekly blog about pregnancy and all things parenting over at Essential Baby.
Some of you have asked why I’m not doing that kind of post here and I guess my answer is that I’m aware that not everyone who likes to hang here on Mamamia is a parent or is even interested in that kind of personal stuff…..
But don’t be jealous – I’ll only be posting one long-ish piece there once a week and here daily as usual. And if you want me to, I can link to my EB post from here like I have today.
Here’s a slice of this week’s…….
The Great Gender Balance Debate
Freedman is a journalist, author, media personality and mother of two
kids aged 10 and two. She’s currently pregnant with her third child.
While trying to juggle the demands of work, a toddler, a tween and a
pregnancy, she drops the balls often. Sometimes, she even feeds her
children cereal for dinner. Here, she’ll be blogging about pregnancy,
motherhood and asking all the important questions. Like “Why is Nicole
Kidman not showing when I really am and she’s due before me?”
don’t know if I’m having a boy or a girl. Really, I don’t. And you know
what? I honestly don’t care. But that’s probably because I already have
one of each.
Look, I don’t mean to sound smug when I say that.
I’m not bragging. It’s not like I DID anything to engineer a son and
then a daughter. It’s not a skill I can put on my CV (‘Mia can gestate
a penis AND a vagina!’) or a trick I can wheel out at parties. It was
just luck or fate or chance or whatever you want to call it…..
