At the end of the last lesson as I parked the car I looked to my instructor and he sat there having a smile on his face. That should tell you how I'm doing. Automatic really changed my life. I now have five lessons or so with the automatic car and the difference is amazing. So I guess we are very slowly walking or rather driving towards the end phase. The nervousness before lessons is almost gone and I can talk while driving and I drive quite normal now. Which my instructor likes, but still I should stop at yellow traffic lights and not speed through... Difficult for him I guess, it shows me being very comfortable to drive and of course almost everyone drives like I do but I shouldn't drive like that during the exam.

The "100km/h race street" is my favourite part now. There is a traffic light at the beginning, and after that a long almost straight road with the speed limit of 100. Well, I tried out what my 200 PS car can do and how a "kick down" feels like. I loved it! 

My Grandpa is going to join us in the next lesson. I'm quite nervous having him as a passenger, so good practice for the final exam. 

Car wise we have found a model I really like and well, my instructor (who knows my Grandpa since a long long time) will support me in my "Grandpa buys his only Granddaughter a car"-project. :pb_smile: I have my eyes on a VW Up "high up" model. Not brand new like I wrote before, but not too old. Maybe a car that was used to show it to people or something like that. 

Plan B works!

Okay, screw the UP. It only has "Automated Manual Transmission" and not a "Direct Shift Gearbox". So back to the one I like the most, the VW Polo. (A bit more expensive though.)

      Part of me kind of hopes she has twins, just because it would probably make Michelle’s head explode.

      If it is man’s rules you are following, you will never lose the weight and you will become larger every year.

      If this is true then how have I been wearing the same jeans for 8 years?

      taco pile-up

      I've never heard anyone use this term but it sounds pretty good. Maybe I'll make a taco pile-up with Mexican rice for dinner tonight.

      When I was pregnant with my first we were at my in laws one evening and  talking girl names (we knew it was a girl). My sis in law says "Why don't you name her Louise?" And I was like ewwww no way! His mom pipes up and says that's her middle name. I was like oops... 😐 Happened again with my 2nd girl and my grandmother, who recommended her name, Hazel. That time I was more careful in staying neutral. 

      My mom's name is Louise. She's always gone by Lucy. I've never heard anyone call her Louise in her life. She hated her name when she was younger and now it's become pretty popular again.

      True, but national data only tells you so much. My son’s first grade class last year had two boys called Malachi and two girls called Zahlie. Neither were in the top 100 the year they were born.

       

      ”Old” names are definitely making a comeback, particularly for girls. Under the age of 8, I know kids called Evelyn, Freya, Florence, Eleanor, Alice, Adelaide, Edith, Estelle, Margot, Constance, Theodore and Herbert.

      I love Adelaide so much, if we ever have another daughter we want to use it (it's a family name) so I'm kind of sad it's getting so popular.

      But as many as she has had, wouldn't identical twins this time have the danger of twin-to-twin whatever that is called?

      Twin to Twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is a risk for any multiple pregnancy where two or more babies share the same placenta (monochorionic is the medical term). It can happen in any monochorionic pregnancy which is why monochorionic twins are monitored much more carefully. So Courtney would only be at risk for TTTS she had multiples that shared a placenta.
