Shortly we are expecting the arrival of another member of our family. We are looking forwards to this time, but also a little worried. What will we call this new one? Will it be another girl or a boy? How will Eliza cope with a newborn – judging by the rough treatment she give her new doll? How will Priscilla cope once I go back to work and Eliza is running around and the new baby is demanding attention?

It’s not as if these are issues that no one else has ever had to deal with, so I’m confident it will be OK, but first we need to make it to the delivery day, then get through that awful time, then the new adventure begins!
