On mobiles

Talking the phone was always distructing to me. I could never concentrate on two things at the same time very well. This is why I am very against the idea of talking on the phone while driving. Today I was proved once again that mixing mobile conversations with any other activities is a bad thing. All I wanted to do was withdraw some cash from the ATM. While talking. 30 seconds after I approached the machine, it informed me that my card was swollen for good and will not come back today. Only when I hang up, I realized that I was typing in the wrong PIN. Stupid me…

Things to be missed

For a few days now Olga is obviously thinking about things she’ll be missing in the future. I know that because she shares her worries pretty often. I have to say that I am often thinking about the same issues. Most of these things to be missed have, of course, to deal with Maxim. Small stutf, like when he joins his hands, and puts them on his chest. He can do it easily now, but it still requires a certain amount of concentration from him. Very soon he’ll be able to do it in split second and with his eyes shut. And we’ll miss it. Another thing is that now we can pretty much do whatever we want with him. We can pick him up, hug him, kiss him, baby talk with him. It’ll be too soon when he’ll be embarassed by this sort of behaviour. All kids are. We’ll still want to do it, but he won’t let us. And we’ll miss the times when we were in control. Which are the current times…

Just a thought

One of these days I was talking to a friend of mine. I was very morning slow, but I was surprised at my fast reaction to one of his phrases. It went like this:

Friend: I am downloading Windows Longhorn now…

Me: It’s like saying that you’re getting a 26 inch dildo. You’re free to do what you want, but I won’t be too proud of that, you know.

Now, where did that come from?

Sleep marathon

Maxim amazed us today. Actually, it started yesterday. He ate around five in the afternoon. We tried to put him to sleep, but couldn’t because he wasn’t feeling well. Around 9pm, when it was almost the time to eat again, he fell asleep. He was very tired, so we decided to let him sleep. We thought he would sleep for an hour or so. 7 hours later, at 4am today, we decided to wake him up. Olga couldn’t hold up all the milk and we were also worried for the guy.

7 hours of sleep! Can you believe that? 11 hours without food! Is he growing up or something?
