Time for another baby? “You ask if I am back to normal. I am due to return to the doctor for a post natal check-up and from the way I feel, I won’t be surprised if he tells me I can go right ahead and have another baby. After all, I manage nicely with Susie, the house, and that includes cooking, laundry, cleaning, occasional baking, and all the tasks that go along with the baby herself. She gets nursed, bathed, aired, diapered, and sung to,” Lois wrote home. But, she admitted, “I don’t get as much sleep as I used to. Susie is fed at 10 PM and at 6 AM but I don’t get to bed before 11:30 or 12.” In North Africa, it was the last day for soldiers to ship Christmas purchases home. Whether sending gifts from North Africa or home, the challenge would be the packing.
