    Hey ladies,
    Boy has it been a hectic week!
    Took all 5 shopping on Wednesday to get some groceries and other stuff. Ended up getting the three eldest all their school stuff! Like you Michele my 5 yr old starts school this year, all I really have to get him now is his school boots which I'll hopefully get soon,in amongst the packing up of boxes!
    I swear that my kids get worse everytime I go shopping.Kate decided to lean on the barricades that they have sitting in front of the express lane in coles. Well after me telling her three times not to do it, the barricade breaks and she goes tumbling backward onto the hard floor with the barricade on top of her. She had a slight concussion and a massive headache but she's fine now!

    Hi,

    Sorry to hear that Kate had a mild concussion, I hope she has fully recovered from it. I hate taking my all my kids shopping especially my 3 year old and 5 year old. Every time I look around they have run off somewhere, thats why I usually stay away from shops when it is holidays. I will have to go this week but I will not have my 3 year old, Jayden will be back at preschool when I take the 3 oldest to get their school shoes.

    I am having some quiet time today before my hubby gets back with my two boys. They should be home some time tonight. My oldest son has gone out with his pop today so its only My five year old daughter and my 2 month old daughter.

    She is fine now, thank god!
    I'm dreading taking them to the hospital with me on Tuesday for my OB appt. I might be able to con my aunts into looking after them for a while though.

    I know how you feel, luckily when I have been to see my obs/gyno I have only had one of my crew because 2 have been at school and 1 was at preschool. I only had my 3 year old and because he did not have his brothers and sisters to stir him on he behaved alright. This year Melissa my third child will start school and Jayden will go to preschool 2 days a week, Wednesday and Friday, so any appointments that don't include the kids will be done on either of those days. I have a few appointments coming up but most of them is when the kids go back to school. The only appointment I have in January is probably to my gyno so he can insert an IUD in and to discuss other gyno problems I have been having.

    Anyway how are you coping with your kids at home. Two of my kids have just come back home from Sydney. I am planning in going shopping this week to get school shoes for all of my three kids who will go to school this year. I have also got to get Melissa a lunch box.

    The kids have been home from Mums for two weeks now and I wish they were back there! They are being MONSTERS!!!!!!!!

    Tim keeps stirring Jack up and because he has a high pitched voice( part of his Aspergers) he squeals! Talk about ear piercing.

    Lizzy and Kate keep trying to play in the boys room behind the mattresses and they end up messing their room up, so they get into trouble.

    Bella is trying to lay on me constantly and because it is so hot it's uncomfortable.

    And DH keeps on wanting "something"!!!

    We are moving out of our house in three weeks and I finally got off my bum today and started shifting stuff!I moved the kids bikes, our bikes , the 2 small pools, the swing set, the BBQ and i put up the sun shelter. I only have a whole house to pack up now. but i did start DH and my room last night, finished at 2:45am, then got woken up at 7:00am by the kids!

    I have my appt. on Tuesday with the OB resident and hopefully will find out what is happening with Bubby. Just in case they want me to have a scan, I'm packing a Mars Bar in my hand bag.

    Thought I might get Bella weighed tomorrow...Last weigh she 8.24 kg(18lb1oz) so I'm happy with that. My girlfriends little boy who was born in November weighed just under 9lb at birth and he now weighs 15lb!He is only 8 weeks old.

    Hi,

    How is everyone, Having the same problem here. The kids are fighting. School come quick enough 2 weeks 6 days and counting. I think they are getting bored. Melissa just can not wait until school starts.

    Regarding school, went shopping for shoes this week, came out of the shop one hundred and seventy dollars poorer for four pair of shoes. Also got all there pencils, rubbers etc. Melissa has already started going around the house with the bag on her back. Jayden started back at preschool this week, looked a bit lost without his sister. Hoping he will make some new friends this year.

    Ashleigh is now 10 weeks old and growing. I have not had her weighed since the 13th December, I got to get around to going to the clinic but with the kids on school holidays there is not much time.

    Saw a show on TV the other day with a Jewish family in Melbourne with 17 kids, & I've recently watched Cheaper by the Dozen (predidctably twee, but I just had to watch it, lol), so not feeling like such a hero with 5, lol.

    I have taken all 5 shopping BY MYSELF once, and it was fine, but Angus was being particularly good that day & the twins slept the whole time, so quite a stroke of luck really. Yesterday we just had the 3 littlies with us at Knox City, & they were all crying at once at one stage,

    I'm looking forward to how our dinner table will be when the littlies are feeding themselves.

    And I'm looking forward to these babies sleeping through the night again.

    Hi everyone,

    Been busy lately, We had Mark's brother, wife and two kids come down and see us from Townsville, they are going home tomorrow. We had a late night out last night. We went to meet my father-in-laws girlfriends family and found out they were getting engaged so it was a night of celebrations. They will be getting married at the end of the year and my five year old daughter Melissa has been asked to be flower girl. My husband will be his father's best man. Mark's mother died a few years ago after a long illness so we are happy that he has found someone to spend his time with.

    Off to the Ears, Nose and Specialist tomorrow, after having trouble with sinuses hoping he can help with the constant problems with my sinuses or nose. Wednesday, taking my five year old to get her eyes checked before she starts school. I still got to find time to go to the clinic and have Ashleigh checked, it has just been so busy lately. Once the kids are back at school , I am hoping everything will quieten down.

    Vanita, I know what you are saying about thinking about another one, Ashleigh is only 2 months old and I am considering going for number 6, 12 months down the track.

    Where are you moving to Jess? I hate moving, but doing it with 5 kids and being pg too isn't fun!

    Yvette- if they all slept it would be a breeze shopping wouldn't it? Hope your trerasures do sleep through again soon, helps you to feel human.

    Michele- Hope the specialist goes well.

    My niece ended up sunburnt here on Fri, she is blonde and fair. Not that it was really my fault as my SIl brought her here at 1pm and hadn's sunscreened her up and she let her go out, so I didn't even think of it. Her shoulder ended up blistering so it was pretty bad, and I felt awful. My kids don't burn thaat easily as they are all darker than my niece.

    A big week ahead I am planning to do lots of stuff, lets hope I stay motivated.

    Hi mitch
    We are all moving across to my aunts place as both of them were nice enough to offer to let us move in with them.
    The older 3 kids will be inside in the rooms that we have set up for them and Elizabeth and Isabella will be outside in the caravan with DH and myself.
    we were lucky to find a caravan and annexe for $1000, so I thought that was a bargin, and when we finally find a house we can take the van with us!

    I can't think of much more to add yet, but when I do I'll add it in here.

    Jess- that was very good of your aunts. I am guessing they are not far from where you currently are living. It is hard to find houses big enough to fit large families. Unless of course you customise them to suit and you can't do that and rent. Are you trying to save for a house?

    I am feeling like I am not reading things carefully and that I am missing bits of info which would make things make sense IYKWIM? Maybe it is just the school hols!LOL

    Hi everyone,

    How is everyone, School is back next week. Thank goodness for that. Kids are starting to get bored especially since it has been raining on and off for the last couple of weeks.

    Melissa is starting kindergarden next Tuesday. She is wanting to go somedays but not wanting to go on other days. I don't think she likes the idea that she has to go five days a week. She is starting the same day as the boys go back as the school principal wants them all starting on the same day.

    Jayden is starting to get used going to preschool without his sister. He is starting to join in more and making some friends. I am glad that he is enjoying it now because I was worried he was going to start fretting for his sister.

    Ashleigh has a cold at the moment along with myself(due to stupid weather in NSW) and I am considering taking her to the doctors in the next few days to get her checked out.
