Dog and Baby: A Special Friendship

I worried when I found out I was expecting A, about many things. One of those was how Loki, our Danish-Swedish Farmdog, would react to having a baby around the house. He was just a baby himself when I was expecting.

We were sadly close to cancelling him when he was a puppy. The deposit was paid to reserve the little fellow, then we found out we were expecting not long after! We worried about having a puppy and a baby around at the same time. Eventually it was decided we’d go ahead and have him, and I’m glad we did.

Præsentation

This is something slightly different. I’m in a little bit of a dry patch with blogging, so I decided to start writing a post here and there in Danish, or dansk. There is now a dansk category to house these posts, too. Yay!

Gaming Round-Up: Preparation For Legion

I honestly haven’t been playing games much since the last time I wrote a round-up. I have been too enthusiastic about blogging, tweaking the blog’s layout, improving my writing, etc.

My grandmother passed away when I was 15, my grandfather when I was 19. Having to witness their slow, painful decline in health and eventual deaths was tough, and had a huge impact on me and my life.

They are no longer suffering, I can be thankful for that. However, now that I’m a parent I often find myself thinking, wondering about how they would react to my becoming a mum and the various ups and downs experienced.
