The 6 degrees of chub

Cheli turned 5 months old this month.

My favourite thing about my petits bébés is the delightful rolls which start to form.

Cheli's little legs have the consistency of raw chicken thighs. Its almost like she could burst at any minute.

There is just something about my little chubby children that makes me want to eat them.

It is a little disturbing.

Isn't it strange when you love a little person so much the only thing you want to do is consume them.

Breathe them in. Squeeze them. Kiss them. Smell them... and then possibly eat them.

I have a habit of squeezing her cheeks together like an annoying Aunt and saying " Ooo you're so cute, you're so cute "

It really is disturbing.

This is Boy at a similar age. Check out his baby chub.

Cheli & Boy are a perfect chub match.

I love making carbon copies.

Copy paste, copy paste, copy paste.

Its nothing personal, its just economics

I have been awfully quiet around here. This is because I am busy. Busy back at school.. yeah - school! With a 4.5 month old, crazy!! But - why not?

In June I said to myself "Gee this whole two kid thing isn't as challenging as I thought, why not have a crazy life and head back to school?" (I didn't - who would say that?)

So I am only doing one unit a semester.

I'm doing an online course in Business Accounting. I'm studying Microeconomics this teaching period.

It's crazy.

I have no idea what I am doing.

It is the best fun.

There is SO much reading. I think I may die from reading.

Can you die from reading too much?

It is a definite change in direction.

Contemporary Arts with a major in Photography to Accounting. ACCOUNTING .. like a bonified smart person. (Even more surprising they let me in... are they letting anyone into University these days or is it just me?)

But I realised something over the last 5 years while I've had the longest study break in history...

I love art, but I am also good at other things. Other things which don't mean going on campus to study, other things which will give me the flexibility in the workforce I am looking for when I graduate.

The best thing: I got heaps of credit.

There are a few other life changing decisions going on at our place.

But I have to go read 3 chapters of a text book so I better go...
