    HI everyone

    Jo- it's a relief to have the shopping done isn't it? WHat grade is your eldest dd in this year?

    Michele- hope you sort Ashleigh and your codl out soon, I hate being crook cos you still have to do everything. Glad to hear your kiddies seem to be going well.



    We too did the school shopping, not much to buy thankfully cos I don't have alot of money LOL. Next year will be a killer cos Jordan will be going to High school. But for thius year it is just grade 6! 2 more sleeps and we will be back in routine! Yeah for me! LOL Jemma starts 3yo kinder on Thursday, now that will be sad, but i have decided that that time will be my groc shopping time once a fortnight,, time will fly then, unless of course jess plays up and then I will just go by myself when Arron is home (a much nicer prospect).

    Cheers michelle

    Hi,

    How is everyone, My cold seems to better but I am having catscan done on Wednesday on my sinuses due to having had a couple of sinus infections this year.

    Melissa started school this week. She was not happy about going, and we are still having teething problems their, but hoping as the weeks go by she will settle in to school. She is not the only one who hasn't settled in others are having problems as well. Academically she is doing well, already she has two awards in her first week, one for her reading and and second for outstanding achievement in all areas. So I am quiet proud of her.

    Have to go dinner is ready, talk soon.

    Hi,

    Just wondering how everyone is going. I hope everyone is fine.

    Ashleigh is still refluxing and now she has a rash under her neck due to all the vomitting and dribbling she is doing. Also she might have to go back into plaster as her foot is still to tight and she is still turning her foot inwards.

    I had my catscan done and seen the ENT. I have to have a septoplasty on my nose because inside my nose is out of shape and is causing me to have sinus infections and constant headaches. So I am going in for surgery on the 7th April.

    I have started doing a circuit class at curves to try and get fit, so I can keep up with my tribe. I had my first session today and it wasn't to bad, so hoping to lose some weight.

    Melissa is starting to enjoy school more now and has even been invited to 2 birthday parties already so far since she has started school. The other kids are doing fine as well.

    Hello everyone

    Michelle Jess is the same age as Jordan but has just gone into year 7 this year..so for us High School next year. Its a bit daunting lol. Shes just been elected faction captain which she is rapt about and is trying out for councillor next week...big year! How are all your kiddies going? I bet Jemma is loving kinder.

    Awww poor Asheigh Michele. I hope the rash clears up for you. I havent had any experience with reflux so can only sympathesise. I hope the surgery will help with the headaches and sinus issues too. And omg well done at the circuit class..u go girl..lol. I am walking a few times a week but im afraid that is all i can manage! Thats great Melissa is settling in well..parties are a great way of making kids feel more at ease arent they.

    Well the kids have all settled in really well to school. We havent gone overboard with after school activities this term..so just basketball and art classes. Our music teacher growled at Emmy at the end of last term and has really put her off so for this term there are no piano lessons...which at $60 a week i cant say i mind all that much Sammy has his own little mummy and bubby music groups which are so great. Hes just the most sociable happy little fellow..everyone makes him smile!

    Well off for now

    Jo

    Hi Michele
    good luck for the surgery and the weight lose. Melissa sounds like she is making lots of friends which is lovely. Hope 1 more cating does the trick for Ashleigh.

    Jo- Sammy sounds like he is just gorgeous. You must have a different system for school in WA cos yr 7 here is high school, and yr 6 is the last yr of Primary school. Jordan is in yr 6, are you getting teenage attitude?

    My lot are well, Josh seems to be tired all the time and loves to push the boundaries, he spends more time banned from the xbox than playng it. Jemma is doing 3 hrs of 3yo kinder and loving it. Jess is cutting molars, but is other the worst of it. She is also starting to waffle her head off, that will each my mum to say she doesn't talk much.LOL


    Cheers michellle

    Hi guys, I've kind of fallen behind here so will just start again from here.

    Ruth is at camp at Philip Island til tomorrow, Lola has to see the physio again tonight re ballet, Angus has a bad cold. He's just unbelievable gorgeous, but still not talking, just says Lola and Coco and babbles. Asha & Lauren are up on hands and knees and ready for takeoff. No longer happy to sit in their little chairs, I now have them in a wooden playpen next to me here so they can wriggle around and play with toys without getting stepped on. Lauren has the cold too, so I expect Asha & I will have it soon, can't wait for that one.

    Lindsay's still fighting off pneumonia & I need to call the lawnmower dude urgently. Our grocery budget is still out of control and I just have to find a way to control it!

    Yvette- hope you and Asha escape the cold. It's always full on with more than 2 kids I reckon! I am finding it hard to fit everything in at the moment and have serious deadlines coming up like garage sale on the 25th and BAS due on the 28th and done nothing much yet!!! Hope the phsyio is going well, what is the actual verdict on the feet? Hope Lindsay is better soon, it has hung around forever hasn't it?

    Jo- attitude is also starting to rear it's head in the 6yo GRRR for that cos he is so naughty sometimes. It seems he is constantly being punished for one thing or another. Lately it's for getting angry and hurting one or more of his sisters. I so don't want to be mad at my boy but he will push me to the end of the rope!!!

    Hi,

    Ashleigh is back in her plaster. We had the plastering done twice because somehow little miss got out of her first plaster so we had to go back and get another plaster done. She will be in plaster for another two weeks and we will see what happens after that, hoping that the foot will have improved by then.

    It has been so busy with so many doctors and physio appts lately. I had Luke at the asthma clinic this week, good news is that his asthma is under control. I have only had two weeks so far this year without going to some kind of doctor, physio or specialist. The next coming weeks, I have a gyno appointment, a paedaetrician appointment with Ashleigh, more physio with Ashleigh, a doctors appointment with Ashleigh to get her four months needles and a clinic visit, her first visit to the clinic since she was born.

    Regarding the other kids they are fine, Luke had his grading for soccer and he is B grade I think, not bad for someone who hasn't played yet. Little athletics will finish next month. The kids have enjoyed another year of running etc.

    Regarding attitude problems I have a 5 year old who has attitude problems. Are we sure that 5 year old girls don't have hormonal problems at that age, I am dreading when she does start, if she is moody at the age of five, I do not want to know what she is going to be like when she is a teenager. LOL.

    Michele- girls and attitude are one word I think LOL Hopefully the plaster works quickly, and what a bugger Ashleigh getting out of the plaser the first time. Well done to Luke on his grading.

    Anotherbusy weekend over here, thank goodness. I am praying that we get some free weekends very soon. Arron has a bucks night/day next Sat and the wedding is the following saturday. After that we have no weekend bookings LOL Kids are tired around here, we have had so much going on.
    Jemma is haveing a party tomorrow, 1 hr with 6 3 yo's and their mums, I think I will be glad when it ends LOL I have to run into the shop in the morning to grab stuff and get home to vac and tidy up.LOL We had our garage sale here on sat, sold about $250 worth but only $110 was mine. Better than nothing though. Spent it in the arvo on groceries though. We too had the storm and had just put the last of the garage sale stuff away when it strck, and it ****ed down for ages, no floods here thank goodness, although floods are good for Arron, big money in flood restoration when insurance companies are involved. Arron has gone out to work now, 10.30, reckons he'll be a couple of hrs, hope he's earlier cos I'm so tired.

    Goodnight and Hi to everyone

    Hi,

    How is everyone, Have been busy with lots of drs appointments, physio with Ashleigh etc.

    Ashleigh is now wearing some sort of guard on her foot now, because she keeps getting out of the plaster. This guard allows me to keep putting it back on her whereas once she is out of the plaster I can not put it back on. Now the physio thinks there could be a problem with her left hip. Going to see Paedaetrician on Tuesday, to find out more. Hoping he can give me some answers to her foot and reflux as well. Ashleigh also just got her needles yesterday, she has been a bit unsettled today, so hoping tomorrow will be better.

    Luke starts training for soccer this coming Friday and he plays his first trial game this coming Saturday. Little athletics is over after this week, so I have Thursdays back for shopping again.

    Melissa has been to another boy's party today, this is her third boy's party this year. Luke has gone to a boy's sleepover tonight for someone's birthday. I am going broke just buying for all these birthday parties. Melissa is still very moody, I am hoping Ashleigh is not like that when she is five.

    HI Michele
    Hope that Ashleighs leg is ok. Sounds like you are all flat out. I too am glad little aths is over although Netball is starting so it is one thing after another really. It is lovely for your kids to be invited to so many parties but it does get expensive having to buy lots of pressies. I think you really have to have a $10 limit cos it can get out of hand.

    We are coming up to the 2nd wedding for the year, then we have a 1st bday and hop[efully a break from socil stuf, LOL I am so tired, too many huge weekends LOL

    Hi Jo, hope your lot are all well

    Hi Yvette How'd the campoer go? AHope all are well at your place including Lindsay.

    Best wishes

    Hi,

    Went to the paedaetrician on Tuesday and we off to see a Paedaetric Orthopaedic surgeon on the 21st March regarding her foot. Her foot is tight still and also her heel is to high, so it looks like she might have to have surgery. She has also got to have an ultrasound done on her hips next Wednesday as there might be a problem with her hips as well.

    Luke starts soccer training on Friday afternoon, and then has a trial game at 8am the next day. I am glad my husband is going and not me. They have to be at the ground at 7.30am in the morning so my husband and Luke will have to get up early that day. I am hoping that he will enjoy it.

    Regarding my other kids they are fine.

    Hi Michele
    poor little Ashleigh, hope everything is ok after your next appt. Looks like a huge day for Luke and your DH, hope they have fun. How are you going yourself, with all the drs appt and things, it isz tough to have all thatg going on. Hope you are looking after yourself.

    Hi Jan- just thought I'd mention your name so you have to write back lol

    Hi Jo how are things at your place going.

    Yvette- hope Lindsay is finally well and the girls and ANgus too are all well. Do you have plans for the school hols?

    Arron has the flu and so is dying as well as keeping me awake all night, my job of course continues, clothes to wash house to clean kids to feed, and all on less sleep than normal thanks to him. I am sooo tired, Ican feel my back tightening up (does that when I am stressed) so I think I need a massage soon. Jordan and Josh start holidays this arvo, 2 wks of trashed house coming up LOL, Jemma and Jess are going well. Jem is loving 3yo kinder would go 3 times a wk if she could. Jess is 18 mths now, didn't make 10kgs though and is 78.5cms talll, so a little one! She is a total bugger though. Climbs out of the pram and her cot, climbs on the table and the bench and anything else she can. I should be fitter AI can tell you, cos I always seem to be chasing her.LOL

    Cheers michelle

    well thank you Michelle!!

    Are you getting sick of me not popping in?? Well I am getting stuck in other forums and don't really know the girls here...but I guess there is no time like the present!! School holidays are already wearing thin with me...40 degrees out side 4 boys inside doesn't add up!!! And the constant fighting :fuming: it never stops, when they are inside it's ps2 or movies to watch or who had more than 2 things to eat...outside it'scricket..who's not out, bending rules or the catch cry " well I'm not gonna play then!" followed by stomping and arm crossing...when do they go back to school again???? The house Is amess and I am feeling soo tired lately...I need a holiday!!

    Hope evryone else is doing ok, will catch up a bit more with you all later..try to work out where everyone is up to and tell you a bit more about me..

    Hi jan
    How sad that the boys are already arguing right at the start of the holidays. I can totally sympathise, Jordan and Josh are at each other 24/7/ And Josh also **** stirs Jem and Jess all the time. I have decided that I am letting my kids sleep as much as possible this holidays esp Josh cos he is always so tired.

    Had an awful day, spent it at 2 hospitals so that we could check Arron and make sure he didn't have legionnaires disease (sounds a bit extreme I know!) They diagnosed pnuemonia but then the dr at the KIlmore hosp was wanting to be sure about what he was treating atypical pnuemonia can be caused by legionella, so we had to drivfe to the nearest bigger hosp for chest xrays. We were there for 3 hrs. THe kids spent the day at my mums. Turns out things were ok and Arron ended up not in hospital as they first thought. We got home about 5.30pm.

    Hope everyone else has had a nicer weekend.

    Best wishes Michelle

    Hi,

    Michelle, sorry to hear hubby is sick, I hope he is feeling better soon. Not good about the legionaires outbreak in Melbourne, so they were probably had to make sure it was not due to that.

    Regarding kids on holidays, Victoria are starting their holidays early, I am from NSW and they don't start holidays until the 14th April. Our holidays include Easter. It seems like only yesterday they went back to school for the new year. I have another month before the kids get bored.

    Have to go to curves now will talk later.
