    Oh H, how is M this morning? I hope last night wasn't as bad as you thought it would be. Poor little girl, I hope they come through soon.

    Hey Jaz, you make do with what you have don't you LOL? We tossed up getting one of those for our kids, but never got round to doing it. MIL brought one for over at her place for them to use though.

    Clare, I'm like that too when Dh is working LOL, bit norti isn't it? And YAY for Miss L getting a visit from the tooth fairy at last! I hope Stella gets well soon poor doggie.

    Cally! How worrying for him. How did he go at the hospital?

    I am happy to report that I have my right ear back again LOL. It isn't quite 100% normal, but the swelling is all but gone now. So I don't think I'll need the second lot of abs luckily.

    Am at a loss as to what to do today, I thought Dh would be home because his shift ended yesterday, but he has gone in again today for an extra because it was a pretty sweet one with him being in the crane all day (yep, my DH is a man of many talents LOL - he can drive cranes too) and he loves doing crane work. I got nearly everything done yesterday so today we could just faff around doing not much at all, so now I will just have to faff around by myself LMAO.

    Trillian - have fun faffing around! Glad your ear is back to normal.

    The hospital stuck the nebuliser on DH and gave him some drugs and he is able to breathe a lot easier now, although definitely not back to normal. I think he is cancelling his GP appt now (naughty boy!). DD and I are heading into town this morning for mothers group and some shopping so he can try and catch up on some more sleep.

    MM - how did last night go? Poor little thing, 4 teeth at once!!

    Clare - yay for L getting teeth!! Hope Stella is getting better.

    ETA - he changed his appt to an earlier one because 3:15 is his usual nap time (at least he is still going)

    Ahhh, Can't have him miss out on nap time LOL. He would need a nanna nap today though poor guy. Glad to hear he is a little better.

    sorry guys i am not being a good baby buddy atm!! just not keeping up anymore!
    we found our new car which is great and we picked it up yesterday.. we got a 98 honda civic sedan its very nice and we got enough in the loan to get comprehensive insuance this time which is a load off our mind!! we also paid a huge chunk of my credit card and are switching banks over to NAB which is who we got the loan with because they offered us all these benefits.. they offered us a balance transfer on the rest of the stgeorge credit card debt with no intereston it for 6mths so we can pay that off a bit and the interest when it does start charging is actually slightly less than i pay with stgeorge.. we also opened a joint bank account with all these benefits (they gave us gold cards) so u get extended warranty on anything u buy with it, travel insurance if u purchase travel on it and no atm fees at all including non NAB atms so that will all save us some money too...
    ive been really at my witts end with asha lately ive just been cutting corners alot so i can have a break.. i feel bad about it but i dont feel like i can do any better.. was thinking about putting her in daycare for one day a week so i can have a rest but then i just think about how much i didnt like childcare when i worked there and it puts me off.. atm i have switched to mini weets cereal so i can just sit her in the high chair and it dosnt make that much mess.. it was suppoised to be an every couple of days thing but shes had it the last few days.. also i got out my friends travel cot and filled it with toys and put her in there when i was cleaning (i used to go on about how much i hated playpens when i was pregnant and how i was never gonna have one) but she stayed there for like an hour quite happily... ahhh idk i just feel a bit guilty atm i think...
    cally - hope dh gets better asap!! hope your day out is nice too!
    Trillian - glad your ear is better.. have a good day faffing around! weve been so busy lately i wish i could have a day like that lol but the washing pile is taller than i am atm!!!
    mm- oh poor thing 4 teeth at once!! one tooth is bad enough! have u seen a gp about the rash? could be an allergy maybe?
    jazmum - haha pushing the bike around with a big stick now thats improvisation!!
    cassius - poor stella hope she gets better asap!! its hard when pets are sick.
    supab - great to see you popping on!!
    pregpan - maybe its all the natural sugar in the fruit?
    anyways hello to anyone i missed gotta go retrieve the mini wheets that are on the floor lol... atleast the floor is pretty clean!

    Noni, I think the playpen is a great idea if you need to get stuff done without her under your feet because you will get more done that way. And don't worry too much about taking the easier path - god knows I do it sometimes to save time or my sanity LOL

    oooohh Leanne, I like being called a spunky mummy

    Noni, hun no need to feel guilty, sounds like you're doing a wonderful job! Lots of mummies get a lot of extra help from family members, their partners, regular child care arrangements - so when you don't have any of that it's pretty normal that you feel like you're struggling from time to time. Re the portacot - do what works, I say! If she's happy in there, then good. (I think they like it cos it's like a little cubby hole - I keep toys in there that E only plays with in there so it's like a treat LOL). Re the CC thing, have you thought about FDC...she'd love one day a week in a different environment (more toys to explore) and plus you get to choose a carer who actually cares, kwim?

    Trill, glad you've got your ear back. Enjoy your day of Faffing. I usually do it the other way around. Faff all day first then confront the domestic disaster the following day LOL. Aaah, had a faffing day yesterday which means today's DomDis Day...really I'm still in denial about DH being away I think.

    Cally, hope your DH is better, sounds awful.

    MM how's M today? Did you get any sleep?

    Clare, well we had BB on last night too, it was actually a bit of an anticlimax. We enjoyed it so much this year I kind of wished I'd started watching it in earlier years LOL. I only saw bits of the 1st 2, then last year and this year.

    Rainy I thought of you when my sis rang up last night to tell me she got Foxtel IQ on! AAAH what am I going to do with my life now BB is over? LOL No point signing up for Foxtel now since it takes a couple of months to get it on and then we'll be leaving. I'm looking at signing up for Bigpond DVDs and getting some telly that way since I can't be bothered working out how to download it for free (plus my dinosaur computer can't cope LOL).

    Well E is still snotty and grumpy enough today to stop me from going out to my ladies' group...better go and confront reality in the form of my DomDis I suppose...

    Hi Yummy Mummies
    Well thanks for all the reassurance yesterday - was feeling a bit down on myself - and i think sickness always seems worse at night etc so i was worried about him. But I know now it is just one of those things and he will get through it all and be fine... the 1st winter and in day care i guess i should have expected the worst!! he slept better last night - not great but better - and he is def better today than he was yesterday. I am off to melb tomorrow so mum can help me and it will be better i think. Anyway thanks you all made me feel a lot better!!
    Sherie - so glad the ear is better - sounded awful!!! have a fun day faffing around. i have so many errands to do tonight after work and n in bed ot get ready to go... my house is a pig sty!!
    MD - I hope E feels better soon, bummer to miss mums group
    Noni - do it, if it will give you some time and space then get some helo if you can afford it. I really recommend FDC but also if you have time to spare you may find acentre that you are happy with. and dont feel guilty about popping herin the porta cot, she prob LOVES it!
    Hayley - how is Maddie today? did the rash clear up?
    Arte - what did the doc say?
    Rainy - how are you feeling?
    Cally - how is DH, sounded awful! LOL about his nap time!!! when are you going back to work and how are you feeling about it?
    Leeanne - I dont know how u manage 3 with DH away. you amaze me!
    Clare - how are L's teeth going?
    OK better go, work is winking at me andi would love to get N early.
    back later

    Noni, Lindsay hated loud noises and it still bothers him a little bit even now. He would freak out bigtime at the vacuum and god help us if we took him to a tractor pull or the races or something else really loud. He is only just able to deal with being near the machinery around here when it is started. Some kids are just more sensitive to noise than others.

    Pregpan, glad N had a better night. And yep, sick children always seem a bit worse at night, especially when it is cold. Definately let your Mum take care of YOU a bit too.

    Marydean, I did Bigpond movies once during the summer holidays last year and it was great - order them and they post them out. I was sneaky though and signed up during a 6wk free trial and then cancelled it at the end of the holidays. So the kids got to see all the latest movies for nothing and kept me sane when it was too hot for them to go outside LOL.

    Noni, W doesn't seem to be scared of loud noises but he is getting shy around strangers atm. Don't feel bad about the portacot thing, that is what they are made for so I guess loads of people do it. If she is happy in there then it is all good.

    Cally, my DH gets asthma too. It is a PITA. He always runs out of inhaler and keeps me awake at night. He has been better lately though, he needs it quite a bit here because it is cold. Hope he is feeling better.

    Sherie, I am like MD, putting off all the domestic stuff as long as I can lol. Hope you find something constructive to do with your time

    MM, how is Maddie? Could the rash be hives? Has she had anything new to eat or have you changed washing powder?

    Clare, hope those teeth come up soon for L. Bummer about Stella. Did you end up getting a behaviourist re the snapping?

    The doctor went well (besides the hour long wait). He is completely healthy but the doctor pointed out some eczema on his face that I didn't even notice lol It is a bit rough and bumpy but I thought it was something to do with his red teething cheeks. The builders aren't here today so thankfully he is getting his good big sleep after playcenter.

    Noni, I remember being very sensitive to loud noises when I was a child, my ears would literally hurt (it was not a fear thing but a pain thing). So maybe A has very sensitive ears as well!

    Arte, did the dr give you some cream or just tell you to use some moisturiser on it? I kwym about the builders, I hate it when the repairman comes, I hate having strangers in my space. The noise factor makes it a zillion times worse. Are you settling into the local social scene now?

    Trill, I have looked at the price and it really doesn't seem very much (if I understand it right) given you can pay a fortune for overnight use only at the video shop and even then the one you want is usually all out!

    Hello Girls!

    Wow it's been busy on here today! i always miss heaps on the day i have mum's group!!

    Noni: man, i have to say that i really appreciate the days that i HAVE with leila AND the days that she is at CC! it gives me a chance to enjoy the time i have with her more and the time she is away is time for me. DH and I use one friday a fortnight when is in care for 'couple day'. we go to the movies, have a bath and basically just lounge around. i love it and i think it is great for leila as she has refreshed parents for the W/E IYKWIM?
    also re the loud noises some of the mums just today were mentioning that their bubs were starting to be 'scared' of loud stuff and would scream hysterically. maybe it's an age thing?

    Pregpan: glad to hear the little Noah is on the mend. i hear you the nights being the worst! at least during the day we have the distraction of activities but at night and with the cold setting in, everything is exacerbated. i know that this week that i have been sick i dreaded the nights as my throat hurt more and exhaustion would just set in.
    And for what it's worth, i just bought leila some brauer 'recovery tonic' to help boost her system as she has been hit with a swag of boogies and germs. maybe N could try something like that to help his system recover???

    Arte: yeah i am hoping they dont take too long. both the bottom ones are competing to come through first. they are almost there...just bought some weleda teething powder and that seems to have calmed things down a bit.
    we are still waiting on a spot with the behaviour guy. he specialises in the breed (maremma) that we are pretty sure stella is a cross with. but i went to the vet (for her cough yesterday) and there are group activity sessions in the local park for the doggies, and i think that it may be fun for her and get her more used to strange situations. (i think she is in too much of a rut!! LOL!)
    what did the dr say to do about the eczema? i remember having it pretty bad as a kid and had to cut down on milk stuff. but then when i hit the teenage years it disappeared! weird stuff!

    (just an update: leila has just found a banana in her nappy bag, peeled it and is now laughing hysterically at how smart she is while stuffing the whole thing in her face!)

    MD: yeah i thought the ending was pretty badly orchestrated. there were more than 30secs there where things just weren't happening and i dont find staring at the back of terri's head, all that exciting television! LOL! i watched a bit of every season. and watched the whole first one as i was a first year media student and it was required as part of our course work! aahhh i LOVED those BB lectures!!

    Leanne: i find it really weird when they leave so early in the morning. my DH does the same when he goes to wollongong. i am contemplating if it would be better for him to leave the night before as the morning is always hectic and he invariably wakes L up...hhmmm

    Cally: glad your DH is ok!

    AFM: well same old same old. leila is ready to burst two teeth. is anyone elses bubs really destructive?? leila loves bashing things, tearing things and throwing things ATM. i am finding it a real PITA as the other day she threw her tommee tippee and broke it, and with the price they charge for them i was not happy!
    oh and we picked up some bargains on sunday: i LOVE melbourne for this reason...we went to the PureBaby wharehouse sale!!!!! it was so frikkin awesome!!! i bought truckloads of stuff including twin sets for $10, gorgeous frocks for $8 and countless cardigans and onesies for $8-10!!! i bought up the bigger sizes for summer and am feeling rather proud of myself!!

    anyway best dash as Destro-baby is unimpressed.

    hi everyone!
    wow clare sounds like Miss L is going through a v intense stage - not the nice little sleepy bubba i met at coffee!! aah but it is so wonderful to watch them develop and learn about the world around them isnt it. I love your idea about couples day - a great plan, we get a babysitter every few sat nights and go out, and have decided to do this once a fortnight from here on, i think it is really important. i wish we could have a day tho ,that sounds wonderful and relaxing - whereas sometimes on a sat i would prefer to sleep LOL!
    well mr N has not had a good day - brought him home from FDC at lunch as he was not drinking and had a temp and had been miserable... he still is. he has thrown up a few times so of course i am concerned but i think he will be ok. i am taking himto melb tomorrow so mum can help me, and also so i can go to work.... i hope he is ok.
    oh no i hear him waking - better go in to him.
    back later

    Pregpan, where/how did you go about finding a babysitter...I'm up with the FDC but I've never actually looked for a babysitter per se. Sorry to hear N is not well again.

    C, I'm so jealous of your sunday shopping trip! Oh I'd love to have a couple day, we usually do them every so often but the timing was wrong for about 6 weeks before DH left, there was a SINGLE day he could've taken about 4 weeks ago but he organised some stupid thing for work instead (*stamps foot*). Now it'll be 3 months (and counting)...!

    Just got him back down.... i hope i am not in for a hell night!!!
    MD I found my babysitter when i was looking for a nanny - but i know she also gets jobs through findababysitter dot com dot au. a lot of my friends have found sitters through there. also some friends have advertised at the university job services here and found good people. my fdc lady is also willing to do some sitting for me if we need it, though i think she has a more active social life than me LOL!
    ok better go - soooo much domestic stuff to do before i go to melb tomorrow. and oh no i think i hear him waking again!!!

    It looks as though Pregpan and i will be doing the midnight madness with the kids tonight...the two bottom teeth are giving leila a run for her patience. she has woken twice since 6.45pm...bwaaawwwww! no fair!

    yeah, have to say that we are pretty lucky having every second friday. it gives us a nice chance to just be us. sometimes we don't do much and head straight home from dropping her off and go back to bed (for sleep!! LOL!! oh, gone are the days of lunch time quickie, sorry if TMI!! LOL!).

    Pregpan: yeah i am just loving her at this stage. i am finding it really fun to hang out with her and watch her play with her friends when we go out. it's just so cool! i just wish our families could be around to see it too. they miss so much!

    MD: ahh the shopping trip was great! despite his best protestations, DH actually likes shopping. and when we go together it is a crazy experience and i am the one reeling us back in. i rarely take him with me to ikea, otherwise we would end up with the place in our backseat.
