One Year On

Today is my daughter and her husband's first wedding anniversary. What a difference a year has made, and I get to babysit tonight! It is early morning here and this time a year ago, my husband and I lay in bed before the mayhem commenced and just chatted about the milestone taking place in our lives, and braced ourselves for the day and all the emotions that lay ahead that day. My husband gets very stressed (like father like daughter!!) at being the centre of attention, i.e. walking the bride up the aisle (while tempered with pride was also scary to him) and the speech - likewise. So I was pumping up his confidence while trying to remind him that no matter how stressed and scared he was today, his daughter was ten times more stressed and scared and to tread carefully!!

Anyway as you know the day pretty much went off without a hitch, everyone had a truly wonderful time and all the stressing and preparation paid off and 24 hours later we could look back and thank our lucky stars that we didn't have to go through that again anytime soon LOL.

Wish me luck this evening, Beautiful Annika morphs into Angry Annika in the evenings, that's how I picked up the gig. I offered a couple of nights before she was born and was told they had thought they would probably take the baby with them to dinner as it seemed to early to leave her - ha!

You'll walk that angry baby up and down the living room until she's all soothed and worn out form crying, no doubt. You'll have her all safe in your grand maternal arms and rocking her gently.

I can't believe that peaceful child turns into a monster at night. Well yes...... I can! Fond memories of my own monsters!
Beautiful baby though.
