A few things about me

Part Two: Mixed Dish

Before I go to sleep I need to rant about the illnesses my baby has heard for the past two months. This is a rant against Danish viruses ala!!!??

We got back from Ug in Mid January, Nikh was fine as a fiddle after having battled a cold for two weeks  while in Ug.  A few days after we get back to DK we go for some baby thingy. There were lots of babies and ofcourse he got another cold. This was not too bad, I nursed him back to good health. There after he joined daycare. He was there for exactly 5 days before he got the mother of all colds. This was his first proper illness. diarrhea, vomiting, stuffy nose, cough, the works. We saw the doctor twice called the hotline more than thrice and they all said he would ride it through. I just wanted to get my child better and was thinking, give him something he is dying, I am dying!!!

He was home for about 11 days, finally I take him back to day care. He lasts one week then is sick again. I keep him home for another week. The week leading up to Easter he was fine and dandy. Tuesday after Easter Monday he was back in daycare.When I picked him up this past Friday he was running a low fever. I have spent the weekend cleaning vomit and diarrhea (sp). He has a horrible cough.

What the hell kind of viruses are present at his daycare. This week Nikh is going for his 1 year medical check up. I will be having some words with the doctor. I just don’t get it. It is getting to the point that I am forgetting that my son has a happy sunny disposition instead of a whiny sick one.

When he was really sick I also got sick and I tell you Danish cold viruses can kick butt. I ain’t never been sick like that due to a cold until I got a muzungu cold….. aaarhg!

Will it ever end. It is more frustrating because I had planned to wean him when we got back from Ug. That has obviously not happened. His sleeping cycles are hellish, more reminiscent of when he was like 2 months old. Poor baby… poor mummy!

(yes I am aware at how poorly this post has been written, I am too tired to edit and stuff, or even delete it for that matter 🙂 and I can’t spell

Mixed Dish

Word from the grapevine is that he beats the shit out of her. Has been doing so for some time now. Apparently the reasons for the beatings are linked to his low self esteem resulting from a non performing work life/business. She being the steady (main bread winner) has not sat well with him hence the violence.

The whole situation defeats me. I fail to understand why she continues to stay. Hers is not a case where she depends on him financially. By staying what message is she sending to thier children.

In my books he is does not exist. He is broken, dirt, dogshit. I feel nothing for him. For her, I want to ask her why stay? why? make me understand. I can’t because we are not close, never were and like I said, I heard it on the grapevine.

I was so troubled by the news of it all. So I put it to myself and later to Big Al, is she not justified in killing him by whatever means. I know I would not condemn her.But before she does I just want to know: Why don’t you leave him sweets why?

And because I am feeling a little blue about her situation and the fact that Big Al is about to travel; here is what I have been listening to tonight.


This one I love love love. I first heard it when I was like in form 4/5. Beautiful ageless song.


and that’s about it.

I have ran out of stuff  to say hence the silence. My blog muse departed so in the meantime I have been reading old blogs and discovering some new ones

Other than that, I am fine fine fine. Little Nikh has been sick for a long time, thankfully he now seems to be on his way to good health. We celebrated his ONE YEAR birthday some time back (hooray!!). My poor baby was sick during that time. He has grown so much and is stubborn like his mother and father and certainly has his father’s temper; short and quick… but boy is he stubborn. Nope we are not yet sleeping through the night (a post of it’s own). All in all on Nikh’s front things are good.

On the couple side of things; excellence abounds……if I may say so myself 🙂

Been reading lots of books. Lots of romance. Discovered a new genre…Fantasy Romance … eh??? I see you saying. Think Vampires, the undead with a dash of romance etc etc.

Currently reading: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and Raising the Strong Willed Child by Dr. James Dobson. You’d think that I would be reading stuff about sleeping….. what can I say!

See you soon.
