Liva & Laia : Week 14.5 - Week 15.5

By Stine Kuskner - Mon 4th Apr 2011

14.5 WEEKS - 2 Oct. 2010

We bought a single stroller today, the double one we have doesn't fit in most elevators here so I sometimes feel kind of stuck. Now I can take the girls to my work again, I can get around supermarkets etc...

The girls have started interacting a bit - when we put them next to each other they sometimes look at each other and then they start laughing. It's not much, but it's a beginning :)

15 WEEKS - 5 Oct. 2010

Last night I fell asleep on the couch at 21:00, Albert woke me up about 30 minutes later and told me to go to bed, he'd take care of preparing the food for the girls etc. So I went to bed and slept until 23:30 when we had to feed the girls. I guess it was needed, I hadn't realized how tired I was! Today there's a program on Spanish TV - Pillars of the earth miniseries - which I quite enjoy, but it finishes late, close to 1 in the morning. My lovely husband told me to enjoy the program, he'd feed the girls, prepare the bottles etc. There are some advantages to not having a lot of milk and therefore not breastfeeding at night! :)

15.5 WEEKS - 7 Oct. 2010

I taught today for the first time in 2010, 3 5-year olds so it was quite easy. I have to be there between 18:00 and 18:15, it's only 5 minutes from where we live. I checked with Albert that it would be possible before confirming the classes with the mothers, and was told that yes, no problem, he can be home in time. Suddenly last night it was a huge problem, it would be really difficult for him to get home on time. All day today he was all pissy when I spoke to him, he's busy at work, it had been really stressful having to leave, what do we do if one Thursday there's a problem and he has to stay longer, etc. So the joy of starting teaching again was pretty much killed by a pissy husband. He came home at 18:10 and I arrived 5 minutes late to class - I could probably have made it on time had I known there's a bicing-parking right next to the house where I teach.... But it wasn't a problem, I just taught 5 minutes longer and that was that. When I came home, Albert was still in a bad mood and insisted I move the class 30 minutes or so. I tried explaining that the mothers had wanted class at 18:00, the kids are only 5 years old and can't have class so late. And what was his reply?? "What's going to happen to them, are they going to explode or something?" Man, sometimes he can be soooooooooooooooooooo annoying!!! So now I'm looking for somebody who can come watch the girls for 20-30 minutes every Thursday so I can enjoy teaching again and avoid anymore stupid comments from my husband!

Teaching again was great, the kids are really cute. And riding a bike again was wonderful, I miss doing exercise and riding my bike all over Barcelona.
