    Bath good luck with the party, the 7th is also DS2's birthday so we will also be having a party, only family so not as many as you.

    We I got the dreaded call this morning, hello Mrs James, I'm sorry but your son Kailen operation has been postphoned, it's to be resheduled sometime in the next two weeks will send you a note in the mail.



    Well I must say I'm totally ****ed off as this is the second time it's been postphoned, his hearing isn't getting any better he's nearly finished yr 1, and I don't want him to be kept back. I just wish that they would keep to the day that they say so that it will help him.

    hugs xoxo

    Having a pretty tough day here, Tori is being very difficult to feed- she cries and cries when I try and attache her to the breast, it is so upsetting, eventually she will attach and feed, but not after a great deal of protest- I am pretty sure that it is related to AF.

    Candy- So sorry to hear about your horse. It must be so much more upsetting finding out so long after the fact as well. Any news on your job interviews yet?

    Bath- Good luck with Wade's birthday party, hopefully the weather will be great and the kids well behaved.

    Amanda- How frustrating to have your sons operation postponed for a second time.

    Cee-Cee: I am glad that Ally enjoyed her walk in the Baby Bjorn, we have been taking Tori out in hers more often to try and get her used toit before we go to Bali, as I dont think the footpaths/roads are going to be that great for navigating a pram around.

    Anyway off to organise dinner, and finish putting the shopping away.

    Ali, you reminded me - anyone who doesn't already should consider doing a fortnightly shop...it really does save money! Of course, you need to top up your fruit and veg, but just about everything else can be taken care of every fortnight. I only just started doing this and i spend significantly less on the off week cos I"m not being tempted by the other things calling to me from the aisles!
    Park - had a lovely walk with the dog in the arvo - I just sat and watched him take himself for a swim (he's really taken to that caper!) and sat in the warm sun with Oscar asleep in the HAB.
    OK, gotta get a quick dinner on so I can go and meet up with the girls at a local cafe (they have GREAT hot chockies!)...

    Hey does anyone have Candy's mobile phone number? Enigma just sent me an sms requesting it... she also says "Hi Junies" and that her laptop is out of action....
    Send me an email with Candy's mob # if you have it! Thanks

    ETA: or of course you could sms Enigma yourself if you want... just let me know... ta

    Regarding Wade's birthday party: it's just going to be a traditional affair: cake, party food, party games like pass the parcel (but with a small surprise in each layer - toddlers don't understand the nature of anticipation! LOL). Yes we have had jumping castles at other parties in our street but I don't think it's expected or probably safe at this age. Also, it's best to save your pennies until they are older... kids this age are easily pleased... and I also think at the end-of-the-day he would enjoy it more if we could afford to go to SeaWorld at the end of the year. We went for the first time when Verity was the same age (just turned 3yo) and she absolutely loved it. Even though we've been 3 times already they have a new shark enclosure that we haven't seen.

    Bath- I just emailed you Candy's mob number. Hope the party organisation comes along smoothly, well now you can use 'the party tool' as a way of Wade behaving lol! Then after that it's onto Santa only coming when your a good boy!
    Ali- I am having the same issues as you are atm and seeings we both have AF maybe your right. So yesterday Nixon didnt want a bar of the sheilds, today at one feed he just didnt want a bar of it at all. This is after i thought i did really well that i bf him when we were out in the mothers room and he was great. Got home for following feed and it was a disaster.....
    then tonights feed he was going down the same path, i pulled him in really close to me and held his legs tight around my side and then he was ok (he was wriggling lots and everytime he wriggled he'd slip off)


    it was a cold morning here but such a lovely day, on my way home from the shops (had my eyes re-tested and what do u know they have gotten worse so another new prescription needed! apparently eyes can get worse after having bub) i stopped at a big park and went for a walk, it was so peaceful however would have been nice to have someone else to chat to.Amanda- I'd be annoyed if they kept delaying the surgery too, i guess you know it will come but you probably start preparing him and telling him what is going to happen and then it doesnt... hope it is re-scheduled and sticks soon
    Gabysmum- so how long did you persist with bf before making the decision to express and formula?
    Candy- i hope your feeling ok today, i can c where your family did not want to upset you right after the birth of Ryan but at least they should have told you the week after or something, not months later and by accident.

    Good Morning everyone. Well we have a beautiful sunny 31 degrees here in Karratha, it is starting to really warm up already.

    Nickers and Ceecee thanks for your kind words about the breast refusal. It did upset me quite a bit. In answer to your question Nickers, Alex right from the beginning wasnt that keen on feeding off me so I have been struggling ever since then. The last week or so it just got worse with me and him constantly being stressed out and DH telling me to give him the bottle (he comes from a family of bottle feeders). In the end am so glad that I did give him the bottle as we are all so much happier now. He feeds up to 7 times in a 24 hr period but I am only managing to express 3-4 feeds, it is finding the time with a toddler around that is stopping me! I will keep going until it gets too hard- I am not going to stress too much about it.

    Candy sorry to hear about your horse. I hope you find out why your parents decided to try and shield you. Am sure they thought they were doing the right thing at the time and am sure as parents that we will also make mistakes with our kids over the years.

    Ali I hope today is a better day for you feeding wise. How long now before your Bali trip?? How exciting for you all!

    Jo am very envious of your good nights sleep there with Freya! Hope that she keeps that up for you!

    ANyway am off now to do the weekly shop. Isnt it funny how I really enjoy getting out and doing the food shop, must be about the only one who does. Suppose am lucky that Gaby doesnt really play up when out, in fact she loves going shopping too and is a really good help.

    hugs xoxo

    Beautiful day here - trying to get the bare essentials done before going out to the pony to take his thick rug off. Must do washing and put it out - can't miss that opportunity!
    Boy is still asleep (since about 9am), so I've had time to have shower, wash hair, wax underarms and legs, have cereal, put on a load and bring in some washing from the other day...how considerate of him! He is such a cherub.
    Hate the flies but I want to keep the front door open for the fresh air (as I won't waste today on being inside vacuuming, dusting and mopping), but the screen door has been 'modified' by the dog and lets in flies with the air...
    Will Oscar give me time for toast???? We'll see...

    Just back from PlayGroup, took Verity along too today... she was a great help as they had extra activites like biscuit making that she was able to help Wade with while I fed Niall. Am thoroughly exhausted now. Looking forward to the boys sleeping so I too can do the washing. Cuppa time...

    Got the most important load done...the nappies! Oscar's clothes are in the wash now. No, didn't have time for toast...just as I pressed "Submit Reply" I heard him cry out as he woke up. He was a cheerful feeder today...then threw up twice - Mummy got got! Oh, well, it was my singlet that's under my summer top, can't be bothered changing especially as it can't be seen
    Just eating a sandwich and have an instant coffee here that I think I'll take outside before heading off to see my pony. I think I'll have to take the dog, too, so that I can take him to the park afterwards, or I'll feel guilty!
    Glad you had a helping hand today, Bath! Nice day for bikkie making
    Nic - enjoy your exercise!

    IK Ė I bet Dante loves the extra loving! As for it being sad for mum, not really. She never had that connection with them I dd. I got all his ribbons & pictures & put them in a box and packed it away. Iíll open it again one day, but not for a while. Maybe never. Just have his memory safely there. My Farrier was the same, always understanding. The good thing was my horses trusted him so much if I couldnít make our appointment he could just do everything without me. Doubt Iíd find someone that great here in the ACT. Also, why do people act irresponsibly with their dogs??? I took Mug & Ryan for a walk today, Ryan in the Bjorn than he loves. Mug is very well trained to hand & voice control but if there are small dogs about I put him on the leash. Just because of his sheer size, if he plays to energetically he might hurt a little dog and I would feel terrible!!! Anyway we were walking and I put him back on the leash due to a little dog terrier of some form, nothing that I recognised, and it just ran up to mug and started barking & growling and the owner DID NOTHING!!!!! I was so mad. What if Mug had gotten protective and snapped at it?? It would barely have been a mouthful!!!!!!! Mad mad mad!!! And as for fortnightly shopping, really works for us. And as we get all our fruit, veg & meat at the markets, we save there too 

    Bath Ė I canít wait to hear about the birthday party  Iím already looking forward to throwing Ryan a 1st birthday party  Simply because he has lots of older cousins that can play & stuff  I think itís great idea letting Verity have friends there and ďusingĒ them  I would do exactly the same!! I do agree I think working will be easier than spending all day with Ryan but at the same time I think it will be hard to spend all that time away from him!!! But for us it is a necessary evil as I have said before! Gosh you have such a helpful daughter!!!!

    Cee Cee Ė I used to make personal stuff for all my friends but I have been learning the hard way recently that they donít do anything for me in return!!! Not that I think they should, but it just seems like Iím always give give give IYKWIM? I was even cooking for their party while I was in labour with Ryan!!! But I am starting to realise I love cooking!!! I even bake my own bread!!!! I think the voucher etc is an awesome idea for your friend!!! I wish I lived in Sydney!!! Sounds like your dog had a ball 

    Amanda Ė Good luck with the party at your house too!!!! Poor Kailen. What exactly is he having done? Gromets? Youíve probably said before but my brain sucks! I hope they sort their carp out soon and help the poor little mite!

    Ali Ė Nothing yet. Iíll know about the court job by the end of this week and my other interview is next week  I didnít know AF could affect things like that. Gosh you BFing mums are amazing!!! You all go through so much, I think youíre all champions!!


    Nic Ė Your new glasses sound nice. What prompt service!!!! That might explain why my eyes seem worse. I guess I better head to the optometrist!

    Gabysmum Ė Iím glad you are all happier, even though I only fed for a short time, it is a bloody hard decision and a lot of people can make you feel like a failure for it!!! Iím glad youíre happy with your decision though! I think shopping is a good outing. Ryan loves getting out and about where he can chat up the shop chics


    Me Ė Well for anyone that remembered, I was in the process of officialising my divorce from my ex andÖ it goes through tomorrow. Just a little yay from me.

    ETA - forgot to say that there are new photos from today on the WWW

    Candy: Just checked out Ryan's new piccys Lookin' good there! He's actually very similar to Niall, or maybe it's just the kind of expressions and poses... It's great you've taken so many... I find it hard to get the time... and I MUST remember to get some of ours printed out on photo paper! Imagine if we lost them all because our 'pute died! So far they are all digital. Poor Wade hasn't had many taken of him lately.... there's heaps of Verity at his age... better try to do something about that. Yeah, Verity is a great help... she's the best "mistake" I've ever made LOL That sounds a bit weird but she's a great example of how sometimes it's best not to plan your life too much... I didn't plan to have a child in my 20's but now that I have the boys she's SUCH a good help and I realise that I couldn't have "planned" it any better ie to have a daughter early then have a big gap then 2 more boys. You should have seen the expressions on the faces of the other mums at playgroup today! They couldn't believe she was my daughter, although they kept saying "oooh she looks just like you!"... Verity is almost as tall as me now (I'm 5' 7"). Of course I mentioned to them I had a daughter but I kinda think they imagined someone younger. Anyhow, she's a constant reminder for me to just "go with the flow" of what life has to offer... everything for a reason etc. Oh also Candy: hopefully you'll enjoy the feeling of closure when your divorce has gone through. My DH was married before (for 6 years) and it was a kind of bittersweet moment. They didn't really have a nasty divorce, there was little animosity, and my DH really tries to see the positive side of the relationship. Every mistake you make makes you a wiser person.

    Both boys are sleeping now, after a little resistance from Wade, and I'm going to head outside now and enjoy this absolutely gorgeous day

    You must all think I'm way too bloody cheerful, but I've had another wonderful afternoon!
    First we went to the equestrian centre and had a lovely walk out to the paddocks (it's on 60+ rolling green acres) then I lunged Dante - being that he's a bit sloppy at the moment it was exercise for both of us. Gave him a brush and a feed, then a chat to some of the mums up there, put Dante away and got back to the car where the dog was patiently waiting. The whole time Oscar was asleep. Went to the reserve on the way home, caught up with my neighbours also walking their dogs, walked around the lakes and parted ways with the neighbours. The whole time Oscar was wide awake taking everything in and smiling (and sucking on the HAB). I fed him in the car and got home just before.
    My washing wasn't completely dry, so that supposed northerly was a bit weak! No worries, it will dry tomorrow, no doubt! Oscar's asleep again in the HAB after DP changed his nappy.
    DP said last night that he'd make lasagna out of some roo mince, so I hope he was serious - I could really go a lasagna after all my walking! I'll fold some nappies and clothes and then I might even crack open some of these acrylic paints and get creative...or I could read my book and leave the painting until Thursday when the weather is meant to turn... What to do????
    ETA: In my conundrum I forgot to say, Candy, good one on the closure! Holes in hearts are not as grim as they used to be, I don't think, so hopefully surgery can still arrest any complications. I hope things start to really look up from here for you

    CeeCee- Yeah i want to get the laser surgery done, but was told a while ago that your eyes have to be stable (ie: not get worse etc) for 6-12months? And that mine would keep deteriorating (sp?) until atleast 25. Well I am now 27 and they are still getting worse. So maybe one day when they stop getting worse & when i have the $$ for it!
    Candy- oh thats terrible that your friends daughter has a hole in her heart. Have they called it a heart murmur? Not that this isnt a serious condition but if it is a murmur i have heard that it can be quiet common and fixed with an op, depending of the degree some people can live a happy, normal life with one. (My cousin is 23 and had one all his life & he is fine) So i am hoping it may be something along these lines, how upsetting for her parents, i hope they are coping ok. Must be a good closure for your divorce papers to go through too.
    i havent done my easy shaper yet BUT i plan to shortly! we all went on a walk when dh got home from work (I took Nixon in baby bjorn) (dh took 2 dogs) we even discussed at mothers grouop today after we finish the rounds of visiting at houses we might do parks etc and go for walks.
    I washed the bed sheets today, hung them out in the lovely sun and they dried!!
