I was feeling a bit smug about my plan to tell my son a big secret. I’m normally more of a blurt-it-out type, but lately I’ve been channeling a much more mindful and profound parent than I really am.
In a moment of inspiration, I’d decided to take my baby boy to look at baby animals so I could tell him his mummy is having another baby. Miracle of life and procreation themes etc.
That’s right ladies and gents, despite being far less talented at parenting than I always assumed I’d be, I’m giving it another go. I figure I’m not screwing this one up too badly and I might be even better second time around, but mostly I think it’s only fair to give Thud a sibling so he has someone to complain to about his mother. Share the burden, so to speak.
We set off for Tatum Hills Farm, just outside of Canberra, in search of baby animals and heartfelt moments #poignant
