    Oh Trish! You wild girl!
    Naah... I was very naive as a teenager. At 15 we were still having alcohol-free sleepovers and we'd go to the under 18's nightclubs sober (and have a fantastic time!). I'm glad tho. I certainly made up for it in Uni tho I was still pretty well-behaved compared to my friends.

    LOL, I guess that's why I do try very hard to understand Joel and all that is going on with him. I was no angel either, nor was his dad. Still, we weren't as reckless or stupid with the things we did. Well, I wasn't anyway. I was out of home by the time I was just over 16 too. Very sad I know. It was just too hard to stay at home with my step father.

    Sorry girls - apparently boys dont turn right until they hit 30...... Girls on the other hand come right about 21-22 I think.
    I was drinking at 13-14, I'm surprised my parents never really knew, but then I used to booze up at all the work dinners. My sister was usually there too getting drunk, so we faked it together. Me more than her

    BUmmer on the santa thing Deb - I am going to do market square a couple more times before I try the santa lap. jenna will probably love it though and pull the beard. Bloody child!

    I had a blissful day in bed reading an NZ novel I have had on my shelf for over 3 years. Finally read it! And it was good. Reminded me of all the things I miss in NZ literature. Very figurative, and just deep, deep, deep. I am now craving more of the same! Believe it or not my best subject at school was English, so I spent many many hours reading literature, poetry and things, only to go and do engineering at uni. Oh well - at least I will be an all roudn balanced parent for kids in school.

    Shane has decided this bub is now a boy. I'm now carrying completely differently to Jenna, very low. Its great, I've not got feet in my ribs like last time and the heartburn is blissful in comparison.

    Jenna's first hair cut tomorrow. I'm over trying to brush out all the knotswith the split ends, so hopefully I can get away with an inch off without her noticing. I guess her hair is about 4-5" long, you just can't tell cause the curls are so tight!

    Sounds like Joel is a bit of a rebel like his mum was lol, but yes they are fussy these days on what they drink, luckily my nephew isnt a big drinker so far, well that i know of

    Debbie: yeah the money in the card after a certain age is good

    HEy ladies

    Declan is starting to come right, Xander and Anneliese are ill now... Allie has a cold, Xander has a temp, plus a headache/tummy ache. My poor little guy. He's asleep next to me at the moment. He just had a blood nose so i had to wake him to clean that up. My tonsils didnt hurt too bad today, the couple of beers i had at a chrissy party must've done the trick

    I was good until about 17, then i moved out of home, started clubbing and drinking (and all the other stuff), then settled down just after 18 (which was good, as i fell pg with xander just after all that!) And now im 22, and a good girl again. Ah, the merry go round of life

    I think its good to get it out of your system before you settle down though, then you know what is out there, i would of hated to wonder what if, i lived it so feel more content with my life as it is now, although i still go out clubbing so guess i didnt let it completely go lol

    LOL on all the bad asses! I suppose I was pretty good really, my biggest failure was my divorce after only 2y of marriage. BUt then I hooked up with Shane - the 40-something divorcee with 3 kids, covered in tatts, fitter and turner, rides a harley and has facial hair!! As I'm sure you can imagine my very straight parents were pretty shocked, but once they got to know him, and realised he's an alright sort, they got over it all, and now he's almost the prodigal son-in-law
    We had a 5:30am wakeup this morning. Grrrr - it stuffs up the morning cause now she'll be zonked at 11am, and up from her nap at 1:30 or so.

    Oh well - I'm going to surprise shane and clean the house today! Its a mess, specially the bathrooms. No comments on nesting please!!! We are still 3w away.

    Fi, good to hear that you got your relaxing day. You deserve it girl.
    Thanks for telling me that boy's don't settle til 30. Just my luck I will get ones like that.

    Hope that Jenna's haircut goes good today. Thankfully Tehya's isn't quite as curly so I can still get the brush through easy enough with some of the Johnsons Kids conditioning spray. Still after a few hours it does end up looking quite messy. She get's the worse bed hair too.

    Belinda, nah I wasn't too rebelious, although I guess I could've made wiser choices in some of the things I did. Although I still go out clubbing too when I get the chance. And can last with the best of them, only it takes me the next week to get over it. Hangovers aren't as fun when you have a baby to get up to.

    Bec, hope you got a decent nights sleep lastnight. Hope work is kind to you today too.

    Simone, I hope that kids get better soon for you. Noah had a blood nose the other night too. Grose. Geez getting out to the pub or casino once a fortnight. Your not doing too bad there, half your luck.

    Well, I am very happy that Damien won lastnight. The look on his face was priceless. I loved the way he sung the winning song, he did a fantastic job.

    Not up to much today. Still tired, as usual Tehya was up about 3 times overnight then up for good by 6.30am.

    I have the worst chaffed lips, I think I must've got them sunburnt last week at the races. They are still flakey, worse still they sort of had tiny blisters on them, almost like a coldsore but over my whole top lip, they have gone from there now but are above my lip, just under my nose. Not ugly or anything, just really itchy, don't know what to put on them though. Not sure if I should just rub coldsore cream into them and on my skin too. What do you girls think ??

    Sorry Fi, posting at the same time. LOL on your change of men. Hey, we all do it. Although I started out with the hairy tattooed Shane and changed (several times) to the clean cut looking guys. Mark looks the complete opposite of Shane. Although they are the same age.

    Hmm maybe I should clean the house too.... I keep waiting for the housekeeping fairy to come but she seems to fly right past me.

    Does taht mean your not ready for bub if you deny any nesting urges ??

    Trish - I still haven't packed my bags..... I have bought all the pads though, and since I'm only likely to be in hossy 24hrs, I can't imagien I need much more than a change of clothes and a book. Imagine the relaxation time between feeding a newborn and not having a toddler around the whole time!!
    I'm kidding myself right?

    Get some Blistex for your lips. The one in the little pot - its seriously the best thing since sliced bread for lips!!!! They will be completely kissable in a few days. LMAO on the clean cut man. If you had seen my XH you would be shocked at what I'm with now...... Actually he scrubs up OK excpet in shorts when you can see all the naked women on his legs. 17 year olds in the navy make the best decisions on classy tattoos huh?

    Well the next hour is going to be cleaning, and then I'm going to take little miss up the road for THE haircut! I'll take photos I think. I hope the girls fit me in somewhere. Its the salon Shane goes to ($10 mondays - I spend a little more getting mine done....) so they love Jenna there. I might still have to get some spray or soemthing too. Is the stuff you use for babies Trish?

    I couldn't stay up any longer to watch Idol. I hate all the dragging on crappola.

    Well atleast you have your pads brought. Got to have the important things covered hey I have a few extra pairs of undies though and a second change of clothes JIC. Nothing worse than having to get a male to bring in more stuff or if you leak everywhere. Oh the joys !!

    The 24 hours in hospital is fine as long as other people keep their babies quiet. LOL. I hated hospital more for that reason, all the visitors that go in there with God knows what germs adn their snotty nosed brats. Then there is always a really unsetteled newborn who likes to scream the place down.

    Enjoy your little rest, shame that you can't get someone to have Jenna for a day or 2 once you got home though, so much easier to settle in then. I did that with Joel when Brandon was born. Little did I know I'd be back in there within 2 weeks.

    There are 2 differnt bottles of stuff that I used for Tehya. They are both in pink bottles, one is Johnson's Junior easy combing spray for wet and dry hair. That's really good. And the other has strawberrys on the bottle and is Johnsons kids No More Tangles Spray, strawberry sensation. That smells yummy. They are both great for her hair and leave it nice and soft too. Cost about $4 or so a bottle.

    I crashed out watching Idol, I was so tired. Mark woke me up for the announcement and of course I fell back to sleep before they did it. I only opened my eyes with all the cheering and was like, Damn who won. Got to se the replay of the look on his face this morning though. Very sweet.

    Morning all

    Well, i should buy the johnsons stuff for my boys hair, they have so much of it... Time for a haircuts here too!! As declan has spent the last 2 weeks in bed, he actually has a patch of dreadies on the back of his head... He wont let me brush his hair, lil buggar...

    Fi - if i have another one, im going to pack my bags at conception!!I spent so much time in hossy, and always had to rely on DH to bring my stuff in... he always brought the wrong things LOL. With Declan i had him at 8.30 the sunday night, then was outta hossy by 5pm the monday (would've been out by lunchtime, but they wanted to "observe" me a little longer) And that was long enough!! But after Anneliese, i didnt want to leav!! Stayed 6 days (c/s) then went back in due to probs for another 3 days. Oh wel... no more hossys for at least 5 years for me

    Trish - i think Anneliese is going to have red hair too, she may only be 5.5 months old, and have as much hair as Gabby but you can see its not going to be blonde like Declan, its red like Xanders! (Which is funny, as Xander isnt DH's, and i thought both the kids would look just like DH... but Anneliese looks like declan as a baby, but with reddy hair )

    Another quiet day here, had to call in sick to daycare, the kids are still ill. I wanted to go to the drs today, might have to drag them all along. I have to get some tests done to make sure everything's out of me (yuck). Might have to wait until i have the car. I wish the kids would just get better!!

    Meant to be 23 and fine here, might get some washing done...

    Hi Ladies

    I have been slack again...too much to do and not enough time, I guess. You have all been chatting up a storm, I was planning on doing personals but its too hard...LOL, see told you I was slack!

    I finished all my Xmas shopping on Friday, WOOHOO!!! It is all wrapped and stashed, still need a few more pressies for Shannen though as the present count was out when we picked it all up, oh well! She has given me a few ideas. Just have my sister pressie to buy now, but thats easy, gardening stuff for her new house, not exciting but definitely needed.

    Saturday Tayla played her last ever game of netball. She cant do it anymore, she has no fine motor skills and cant really run due to her left leg, major break when she was 4. So she has decided to do swimming instead. Hopefully it will help to strengthen her leg a bit. We went to Southland and had the girls Santa photo done. Hayley refused to sit on his knee but was happy to be held by Shannen, not a great photo, but okay. Also bought the girls some new clothes, they are happy with them.

    I also went to the new uniform shop for Secondary School, Shannen needed a few bigger dresses, she is getting picked on a bit about her size, she isnt big or anything, just average, but she was happy as this new place has bigger cuts, so she has gone from a size 12 down to a size 8, and they were $12 cheaper too.

    Hayley had her chickenpox needle last week, she hasnt been too bad at all. A little grumpier than usual. She also has 2 of her eye teeth coming through too. She is still so tiny though. She has had her first haircut, loved it! So at least I know there are no problems there.

    I am trying to get everything in the house finished before Xmas, dont think its possible, since we have just decided to paint the hallway too. I will see how we go! I am off to the Drs tomorrow, am hoping that she wont go nuts at me. I am hoping to get the all clear, but I think she will send me for bloods and probably a mammogram, yuk!

    I have Tayla home sick with a sore throat today, just what I didnt need. At least I have almost all the washing out, just a couple more loads of Shannens new stuff to go.

    Another busy week here, with renovating, school runs, netball training, the netball Grand Final on Saturday, will be great. Then we are coming home and hopefully off to see the Myer windows on Saturday night, Sunday we are making our Xmas pudding, yummmmm!

    A huge Hi to everyone and I will hopefully be able to catch up a little more often and be able to do personals too.

    No tears through the haircut... Phew! It looks a little daggy, but in a few days I'm sure you wont be able to notice. If it hasn't worked I'll be going out to get some of that hair product for the madam!

    Fi that's good Jenna liked having her hair cut.

    I brought clippers to do Alex's. It's so much easier that way and why pay someone else to miss bits when i can do it. Alex had his 18months check with the CYN last week and he's doing well still 13kilos and 87cm long.
