And now it's Liam's turn

The boys had a party to go to this afternoon. We were having a lazy day and I'd let them stay in their pyjamas until it was time to get dressed for the party. Jack was almost dressed and I was helping Liam and "BOOM" there they were - right in my face CHICKEN POX.

Poor little man howled his eyes out when I told him he couldn't go to the party.

Now I'm really just hoping that because he was immunised his spots crust over quickly. He's got his kinder concert on Wednesday night. If he has to miss that he is just going to be gutted.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...NOT

Ahhh yes, it's that dreaded time of the year again when all parents think that they posess the skills of a photographer.

Alas a photographer I am not and here is the proof:

Oh no! Our first infectious disease

Ok just a tad melodramatic, but Jack has Chicken Pox. Now the wait is on to see if both Liam & Imogen get it as well. It has anwhere from a 10 to 21 day incubation period, so I could be waiting a while.

I have to say though, I'm even more an advocate for immunisations now. Jack has spots, infact not even heaps - maybe 20 at the most. But that's it - no fever, no cold symptoms and he's happy as Larry - annoying even, so he must be fine.

According to the Dr, she's seeing more and more kids with only very mild Chicken Pox thanks to them being immunisied. According to her, Chicken Pox is a very horrible virus for the kid suffereing it. I can attest to that - I still remember having it and I've still got the scars to prove it.

Vegies aplenty

On Tuesday Brian and the boys decided it was time for a new vegie garden.
This time we decided to make something that was a bit more user friendly and mobile.

Here are the results:

Sing along if you know the words


Sorry not the highest quality pic cause it was taken on a mobile, but who could resist this clanger for a 21st blackmail.

Jack got the costume the other week and it was still in the packaging. He wanted to wear it, I said fine and he took it inside to get dressed. This is his result. LMAO
