Re: Articles, News, Quotes ...

Here is now the translation from Jonas blog entry Sorry it took me a little bit, but I was quite busy over christmas

"At first he puked on the plane - later he didn´t like the local baby food"

(don´t know if this is the right word to puke. In German it should mean "sich uebergeben")

I was on the plane back home after the last tournament of the year, Masters Cup in Shanghai, when I started to think about my family which soon will have another member, a little girl. The date on which the girl should be born is the 15th january, the same day on which our son Max is born, quite funny...

I still wonder where his "baby year" went? It went so fast. There are a lot of memories from all the years as a travelling tennis family...

It was in 2004, our son was 1 year old. We had just landed in Sydney, coming from Doha, a quite long trip, but everything went quite okay. Max both ate and slept well. But it was also after he puked his milk soup on me, directly after the plane had taken off. I wasn´t directly smelling like roses, but now we were finally there.

At the luggage claim our bags came in one by one and for once they haven´t been the last to come out. Wonderful. We like this. I was really longing after a shower and a change of clothes at that time. Well, now are all bags there. One, two, three, four... four? I check the belt again, all the bags are out. We miss Max travel bed. We thought it can´t be that big problem, they normally have babycots which you can rent at the hotel.

Then we get to the hotel. Unfortunately they had lost one of our room reservations, so instead of getting 2 rooms, we only got one. (We used to have one extra room so I could sleep well before my matches, as the best possible preparation). Okay, I could only hope it would be an okay night.

But. I wake up in the middle of the night because Max is crying loudly. Of course, the poor little guy is "jet-lagged" and doesn´t know where he is. My wife, Petra, takes him out of the bed, tries to make him more quite and lies him down again.
We all fell asleep again, but a short moment later I woke up from a noise again. A disturbing noise.

What on earth is that? Max starts to cry again. The same procedure. Petra takes him out again, he falls asleep again and she lies him down again. But, what is this f.... noise there again?
Max starts to cry again and I suddenly know what the noise is. It is not strange that the poor guy cannot sleep when his bed sounds like a bag of chips whenever he moves. Max has to sleep between mum and dad instead. The problem is solved.

The next day. It is lunch time. Max baby food we took with us was already finished on the plane. So after my jogging tour in the morning I went to a shop and bought new baby food.
-Eh.. What is the brand of the baby food here? Petra asks.
-Yes, I couldn´t find the ones he normally has, so I bought some other ones which looked good.

The first bite. Max spots. The secound bite. Max takes away his head and refuses to open his mouth. Okay, okay...What shall we do? My wife, who is the mother of efficiency, suggests that we take both our part in the city (like 2 agents in a TV show) to find the right tins.
Petra goes away with Max in his baby buggy to one direction and I run fast over the street. I find another small supermarket. I check all the brands they have, but don´t find Max favourite ones. I buy some different tins of all the other brands they have.

Anything is good enough. Max refuses to eat. We start to get a little stressed. I go out on a searching trip again. In the hall I meet an australian tennis girl who suggests me to go to another shop where she thinks I will get Max favourite ones.
I run to a taxi. Yes! There I find them, total happiness!

Max is happy. Petra is lightened. I am also, and warm and ready for my afternoon practice...

So it feels good to travel soon with a small baby again which will get the breast milk for a while first. So I discovered thankfully (there, on the plane back from Shanghai) that it will take a while until we will go out on search for baby food tins again! Thank God.

Re: Articles, News, Quotes ...

Finally there is a new blog entry from Jonas on alltombarn.se

He describes the feelings how it is to wait for the new baby to arrive. Quite funny, he has written it yesterday and today the child was born

I will translate the article, but probably I won´t have time before the weekend...


"Hur länge ska jag behöva vänta på bebisen?"

Jag förstår att det kanske är jobbigt för alla gravida kvinnor som går över tiden. Speciellt för de som har problem med ryggen, svårt att sova, har en halsbränna som gör livet betydligt mindre trivsamt och som av ren längtan helt enkelt är totalt fed up på att vänta på att det där lilla miraklet inne i magen någon gång ska komma ut.

Men, nu måste jag också få säga vad jag som väntande, blivande pappa, känner för varje dag som går. Det är ju faktiskt väääldigt jobbigt för oss blivande pappor också!

Hur länge ska jag behöva vänta på den lilla bebisen? Vi har ju redan väntat i de där nio månaderna. Har man fått ett datum – är det inte meningen att hon eller han ska vara färdig då?

Det är ju som att förbereda sig järnet inför en Grand Slam-turnering och när man väl kommit dit, mötas av beskedet att hela turneringen är uppskjuten. Och att ingen ens kan säga vilken dag den ska börja. Vilket jäkla antiklimax…

Förra gången vi väntade barn var beräknat förlossningsdatum 31 dec. Tja, det är ju faktiskt inte det roligaste datum att fylla år på (om man tänker på det faktum att man får ta körkort och gå på systembolaget sist av kompisarna i samma årskull). Då uppmuntrade jag givetvis Petra att kniiiipa igen så gott det bara gick tills det nya året istället.

Men hon knep nog så hårt att det blev lite för länge. 15 dagar över tiden! Ja, ni hörde rätt. 15 hela, långa dagar. Just det, INTE kul!

För mig alltså. Ja, för inte verkade det bekomma Petra, trots 30 extra kilo och en massa vatten överallt i kroppen. Nejdå, hon njöt av att vara gravid. (Vissa saker är svårt att fatta för en man…)

Jag ville ju ha leverans och det nu!

Visst hade Petra en massa förvärkar. Vi andades tillsammans. Jag höll hennes hand och peppade henne, men så vips så försvann förvärkarna och hon hade ingen känning alls på att det var på gång.

Men hallå – jag är ju tävlingsmänniska! Detta är ju som att komma in på banan, värma upp, få gå av för att det börjar regna. Sätta sig och vänta och vänta i spelarloungen, vänta på att få gå in på banan igen. Höra sitt namn bli uppropat, förbereda sig mentalt, göra sig redo, in på banan igen, värma upp och så kommer de där jäkla regndropparna igen och allt får avbrytas. Ja, ni hör ju själva. Vääääldigt frustrerande…

Till slut kom han då, vår lille Max, och så där i efterhand så hade ju de där 15 dagarna trots allt gått ganska snabbt och han var ju så klart värd all väntan!

Det är väldigt sällan en omföderska går över tiden, säger alla, så jag har denna gången varit väldigt säker på min sak. Nu skulle vi inte behöva vänta. Kanske kommer lilla bebisen till och med några dagar före beräknat datum.

Så det är ju med total uppgivenhet jag nu konstaterat att vi är över tiden – IGEN! Hur är det möjligt? Vi är nu fem dagar över tiden (jaja, det kanske inte låter så mycket, men tro mig – det är en evighet!). Jag vill ju träffa vår lilla bebistjej, som med bestämdhet håller sig kvar därinne i magen. Jag vill inte behöva vänta längre nu på att få hålla henne i min famn och pussa på henne!

Men, hon vill annat och det är bara till att konstatera. Det är som en regnfylld speldag i Wimbledon, där dagens matchspel till slut blivit cancellerat. Vi får åka hem och mysa ännu en kväll framför TVn istället. Men, i morgon är en ny dag. Med ett nytt spelschema. Kan knappt bärga mig.
