    Jessica – you poor thing being sick, and poor Aidan getting sick again!

    Sherie – Happy Birthday to Paige! Hope you went ok with the cake – sometimes those ones are deceptively difficult. I hope you both had a lovely day – what present did you get her? I’m thinking ahead about what to get for Charlie in August.

    Mitch – wow, Jess must be little to only be on 0s now! I wish I could meet her – she sounds so cute! You guys are coming up this way sometime next year, aren’t you? We’ll have to meet up again. Sounds like she’s going great guns with the tt. She’ll have to give Charlie some tips when I work up the courage to try it with him!

    Does anyone know how I would go about finding a playgroup? I think I need to find one – I have had a couple of issues with some so called ‘friends’ recently who treat me like a second class citizen now that I’m a SAHM. At Tom’s gig the other day one of the girls (who I usually get on with really well) was really rude – she chose to bring up over lunch the fact that she doesn’t really like babies, and this was with me, Charlie, Toby and another woman who had her 7 week old there. A few other comments she made and the way she treated me made me feel like I’m not important now. It made me feel so bad because I was really looking forward to having a social outing with these guys. I think I need to start socialising with people who think that having kids is as important as I think it is. Have you guys ever felt the same way? I figured you’d understand!



    Poor Charlie – he’s got a little bit of a fever, AND he’s been waking up through the night when Toby does lately. He didn’t for the first two weeks, but now he screams out at night when Toby does. We don’t really know what to do – we don’t want to go in there because he needs to learn that Toby crying is normal and we also don’t want to wake Charlie up more by going in to him. It’s horrible though because I just want to go and give him a cuddle. When it happens through the day it’s not so bad because we can explain to Charlie what’s happening, but at night there’s not much we can do. I hope this phase doesn’t last long! It’s also hard because we don’t want to ‘rush’ in every time Toby cries and we feel like we have to so we don’t wake Charlie up. * sigh * Apart from that, though, things are going really well here. I hope those who are ttc have some luck soon – it’s good having them this far apart, and I think they’ll be great mates in a few months’ time.

    Anyway, I think an early night is the key tonight. Hope you are all having a lovely week.

    Happy birthday Paige!!! hope she had a ;lovely day Sherie

    Kellee- what a shame you didn't have a good time cos of that girl. I think big gaps can open up in friendships when big life changes accur and you do grow apart from some people. I was a mum at 19 so as you can imagine most of the girls I went to high school with had no idea what my life was like and couldn't relate to me. I felt very out of it, especially in the footy club circle, the girls seemed to go out of their way to be rude and *****y. Of course of the next few years as they started having kids there priorities changed but by that time it was too late anyway. Does the MCHN have mothers group/playgroups? I have never really been to anything like that, once I took Jodan to a playgroup but as most of he mums were late 20's early 30's and I was 21 I didn't really fit in. I hope you can find someone who can be a support to you. We are going to Mackay and then down to the goldcoast at the end of April, it would be lovely to organise a meet up while we are there. We are planning a week on the gold coast, thinking of staying at Ashmore Palms? How far is it from Brisbane to the gold coast? I hope you sort out poor Charlie and his waking up, I don't really know how to help as we have never had that prolem, none of my kids have ever been woken by the others. I think not going in is good and eventually they will both self settle.

    Had a gf and her boys over for lunch today and we talked sewing lol Then met up with my cousins kids and thier dad and his gf for dinner at a smogasboard place, it was a great meal and yummy dessert but I ate too much and had awful stomach pains. My cousins and her ex live so far apart now and we never see the kids. My kids mss them so much so it was excellent to see them. I think I confused the wording bf too, Jessica has just gone froma sz0 to a sz 1 lol, still little though, and now lots of the sz 1 clothes are too young for her iykwim.
    anyway best get going
    see ya

    Hiya girls!
    Thought I should pop in... I swear I havent come in here for almost a year!!

    Aidyn is doing really well, loving daycare (2 days a week whilst I'm at uni), loves zooming around on his trike, LOVES his cars and trains... but he still isn't speaking much at all... I must get that appt booked with the MCHN to have a chat and check his hearing (although I'm pretty sure that it is fine).

    Yesterday DP and I went down to the local oval to get some soccer practise (DP has just joined a soccer team), and Aidyn thought it was hilarious, he was running around us the whole time, and he ended up getting so buggered that he would run a few metres, drop to the ground and rest for 10 secs, then get up and go a few more metres, then drop again. It was very funny... but good excercise for everyone, so we are going to keep it up a few times a week.

    Kellee - I'm sorry your 'friends' were so rude to you When they have kids of their own they will soon realise....
    You are so very welcome to come for a visit here with your boys if you ever want to.

    Anyway I have to get ready for gym now, will pop back on later!

    Hi Girls!

    Paige had a great day. She certainly knew it was all about her too LOL. The cake even looked just like the one in the book so I was stoked about that! We gave her a Little People aeroplane (which she just loves), a little tikes dance mat, a Fifi and the Flowertots beanie, and a talking Peppa Pig. My Mum got her a pink mini Razor scooter with the three wheels on it for balance and she looks so funny on it because she goes so slow. She also got $20 for her piggy bank.

    Kellee, can you ask your MCHN about playgroups/mothers groups? or even at the hospital. It is a bit disheartening when you have to defend yourself to your friends about staying at home. I am at a total loss as to how to help with Charlie. I am sure he will get used to Toby's cries soon and will settle down.

    Michelle, LOL about the undies. Paige is really tall and skinny and doesn't have much of a bum, so when she is side on, you can see right through the leg holes. She likes to put them on late in the afternoon, which works well because thats only 1/2hr off bathtime. Paige is in a size two for everything because of her height, but the waists are usually really big for her. Jess must look adorable being little.

    Hi Ambah, enjoy the gym.

    Wow Ambah so nice to see you, you'll have to make it a more regular occurence. LOL at the soccer practise, Sounds like Aidyn had a ball. How is your uni course going, it so so good that you went back. Take heart my Joshua ddn't really talk much until after he was 2.

    Sherie- thats exactly how Jess' undies look. SO glad the cake was a success and sounds like an excellent bday. Josh's bday is the 14th of July then there are 3 other family members bdays and then Jess', she is already singing the bday song, and will blow after Hip hooray for the candles lol She is getting the Loving Family fisher Price Dollshouse for her bday.

    Jordan has a friend over today, Josh will prob go play with the neghbours grandson this arvo. I have a bit of tidying to do and then some sewing. Finally got into my office and moved the filing cabinet into the wardobe. It was in front of the window and blocking the light. The room looks lovely all tidy lol, not sure how long it will stay like that though. I need to go buy some boxes for receipts and soon, cos they are getting put everywhere, I have a box of Arrons business receipts to sort too, 8 years worth, *sigh* wish I had of thought more about that lol, although they aren't all mixed, but will still take a little while to do. My aim is to get my tax stuff together early this year so that we get our return and can pay for our flights and stuff to Qld next year.
    have a good day everyone

    Sounds like she had a wonderful day Sherie! She scored well LOL, and awww at the talking Peppa pig (I think that show is SO cute, LOL!)

    Yay @ your tidy office Michelle, do you want to come and do ours now?
    Goodluck with getting all your tax stuff together... I'm dreading ours as it is, but with your businesses etc yours must be so much more complicated!!

    Hey Mooshie, I got the Peppa Pig from the ABC online shop. It was only $19.95 too. They had a heap of other Peppa Pig merchandise too.

    Ambah – hi! Wow, it has been a while, hasn’t it? Hope you’re able to come on here more often – I know it’s hard when you’re studying though. How is it going?… LOL at Aidyn with the running too! I bet he slept well that night.

    Sherie – So glad to see that Paige had a lovely day and that the cake turned out well. I had to laugh at how big Paige’s undies are – that sounds really funny!

    Mitch – tax, YUCK. Don’t remind me – I need to get onto mine too or we will be 9 months late like we were last year. Have to update all the Centrelink stuff too. Paperwork sucks. Glad you had a bit of a tidy out – hope it stays like that for a while!

    Dach – thanks for the tip about playgroups. Just gotta stop being such a ‘fraidy cat and do it now!

    Not much to report. Just had a lovely sleep with Toby – bugger I don’t get to do it more often. I feel like I don’t get much time to spend doing anything nice with either of the kids at the moment but when DH starts holidays on Friday I will endeavour to have more one on one time with them. And with DH too – I feel like I haven’t been able to have a proper conversation with him for weeks! Ah, it’s all fun, isn’t it? Went for a big walk and took Charlie to the park today – it felt really good to get out of the house. I’m trying to lose this extra weight too because I have to be bridesmaid at my brother’s wedding in October – I have lost all the ‘baby weight’ and now I just have the icecream and chocolate weight to lose! I probably need to lose about 12 kgs to be normal again – I think that’s doable. I hope!

    Anyway, almost dinner time. Have a lovely Friday, everyone.

    hi everyone

    big sigh of relief - pheww school holidays are just about over and i am ready now for ds to go back to school on monday lol. they are starting to get on each others nerves and bedtimes, naptimes have been all around the shop.

    lani seems to be going through another clingy stage and keeps wanting to be picked up whilst i am cooking dinner just so she can look what is on the bench - she also runs to the pantry every 5 minutes pointing to the top shelf shouting chocky bikkie chocky bikie and if i don't listen to her she stamps her feet - oh joy she is going to be a lovely hormonal teenager pmsl.

    i think she is cutting her 2yr old molars, probalby that is why she is so clingy her cheeks are rosy red - looks like the kids on the vegemite ads lol, dribbling heaps and sticking her fingers right down the back of her gums - oh i can't wait until they come through. jay on the other hand is whinging every time he eats cause it hurts his loose teeth, i gave him a toffee apple to chew into it to help the teeth fall out but he just licked it lol, he has lost 4 teeth now and his top 2 teeth are soooooooo wobbly omg he is gunna look so cute with the top two teeth missing.

    sorry for the lack of personals - will try and keep up with my posting, trying not to focus on the ttc anymore and quite frankly after the last few days having another child is the furthest thing on my mind, but i know that will change in a few days lol.

    have a great weekend

    Hello girls!

    Just catching up on what everyone has been up to.
    Kellee - congrats on the birth of Toby! I totally missed that as I have not been in here for a while.

    All well here. Wolf is a little chatterbox. It's amazing how much he talks and in two languages as well. I never thought I'd be able to communicate with him so well at only 19 months.
    Hey - Wolf still only has 6 teeth... anyone else a really late teether in here??

    Yep Snowgirl, my three were all late teethers. I wonder though if by getting them late that they lose them later than other kids too?

    Hello girls, sorry I have been absent for a while, I only get so far through reading the posts and I have to go and deal with one of the kids, my BB time is suffering! DH is still on holidays too, he goes back to work next week, so I will be able to get online a bit more then without feeling like I'm neglecting him!

    Things are going pretty well now. I think last post I was saying about how much trouble Kaleb was having adjusting to the baby, but it turned out the next day he was really sick which was probably more the reason he was playing up. He'd been vomiting and coughing etc, then one night after his bath he came up in a very strange rash that we couldn't identify. I rang the child health line and was told it was hives and to rush him to the dr or hospital to get an antihistamine incase it blocked his airways. Talk about a mad panic, 7pm on a Sunday night! DH took him to a medical centre and it turned out to be a harmless post-viral rash, but it hung around for a week or so. He is all better now, and is quite good around Freya, except for when she is crying when he gets a bit panicky.

    Sorry for lack of personals today, I will make up for it next time! Hope everyone is well!

    Hey Michelle, they did have other Fifi stuff. They have DVD's, play dough sets, jigsaw puzzles and a memory game. The Fif beanie I got for Paige came from there too and is really warm, it's knitted on the outside and polar fleece lined on the inside.

    Jo, don't worry about the personals - we've all BTDT LOL. I am pleased little Freya is settling in for you. Kaleb will get used to all her little noises in no time.

    Mel – wow, it’s so great that you get on so well with XDP and his family. It must make it so much easier for everyone, especially Eliana. Damn, I forgot the expo was on today! I would have gone myself. Oh well, I think there are a few different kinds that come around through the year – I think there’s another one in September. Hope you’re having a nice time down here.

    Mooshie – yeah, it must be tough with both of them home and routines being changed. Hope you make it through to Monday in one piece! LOL at imagining Lani as a teenager. That’s one good thing about having two boys – hopefully they won’t be as hormonal and nasty as I was! Hope the molars come through soon and that DS loses his teeth soon. Does he still believe in the tooth fairy? I remember when I was about his age the tooth fairy left this tiny insy winsy little note about double the size of a postage stamp. I treasured it so much.

    Snowy – long time no write! Hope all is well with you guys. Which other language does Wolf speak? That must be so cute!

    Jo – we understand the absence, don’t worry! You must have your hands full. Poor little Kaleb, but I’m glad it was nothing serious. Does Kaleb cry when Freya does? Charlie has been when Toby does and it’s been driving me crazy – it’s not really a cry, more of a scream which is sometimes obviously only done for attention. Sometimes he’s genuinely upset, but the other times… * sigh * Hope everything is going well with you – how’s your recovery going?

    DH is finally on holidays… YAY! It’s really nice to have him around. He’s starting to bond really well with Toby too, which is great – he had an instant connection with Charlie but he had so many concerns about how we were going to handle two, and whether I was going to get PND that he took a while to bond with Toby, but all is good now. Charlie is going to love having his dad home too. We’re going to try and take it easy, but I’m going to insist that DH take me out on a date before he goes back.

    Please don’t feel like you have to answer this question, but I just thought I would ask out of curiosity – do you think it’s mandatory that you wait for the six week check up before you start DTD again? Just curious… I had some pretty significant tearing and stitches but things are healing really well and I wonder how long I have to wait? Last time it was out of the question, but this time… sorry if it’s tmi! Feel free to ignore me!

    Anyway, dessert beckons. Hope you’re all well and having a lovely weekend.
