Today call me wanted, and not just to replace toilet paper rolls in the bathrooms. Or to cut up apples because youarethebestatitMommy. Or to decide which pair of jeans can be pulled from the hamper and worn again. (You do that, right? Because if not, neither do I.)
Either way, I’ve been invited to visit the ever-lovely Alison of Mama Wants This today and I don’t even have to wear pants. (Shhhh.)
I can’t remember when I first *met* Alison; but I do recall that, one fine day, out of nowhere she was everywhere; commenting on countless blogs before I got there; tearing it up on twitter at all hours of the day; posting pictures on facebook; supporting, encouraging and spreading love across the internet while I was busy doing other things. Or sleeping.
Eventually, I discovered Alison lives in Malaysia which (kind of) explains why she’s awake in the middle of the night. Nevertheless, I believe she possesses magical powers; the super-human ability to address more blog posts, tweets and status updates than any other sweet, small pregnant lady ever.
You are aware she’s knocked-up, right?
Yes, Alison’s doing her part to even the parent:child ratio in Malaysia by gestating a second boy to join her already adorable two-year-old son. And when I first heard the news, I sent Alison a gushing email explaining how much I adore unconditionally being a momoftwo.
I may have exaggerated.
I mean, it’s hard to raise a houseplant, right? Plus we have toilet paper rolls to replace and apples to cut and jeans to wash. Or not. So doubling your child-count can be downright terrifying. Which is why I’m grateful Alison asked me to follow up with a guest post to share what I learned about my biggest fears.

Either way, please tell my kids to stop growing up. Their mama says thankyouverymuch.
