so, i am now privileged to have a nanny help out with Axel two days a week, which means more regular blogging will resume – yay! and that also means that more regular mid week distractions will resume.

i’m still trying to figure this work and baby thing out, but i have been so lucky to enjoy an extended maternity leave (since i work for myself, and have sacrificed freelance work in order to spend more time with Axel). he is 6 months old next week, can you believe it? i certainly can’t. he has even started sleeping through the night, sleeping till 6am two nights this week. do you know how huge that is? for people without kids: that’s HUGE. i just love him to bits, that little guy. so i can’t blame him for taking me away from the blog for a while.

but, anyway – back to those distractions.
