Now I know I made the right choice

I look back to my post of a few weeks ago and boy how things have changed. The child that I was crying and agonising over has now blossomed into someone new.

Long gone are the days of crying about going to creche. Now I get her singing about ABC, bears and blocks (yes she goes to an ABC center for those who know the logo) in the car on the way there. She shakes the gate, not trying to escape, but trying to get inside faster. The mainly two word conversations have been replaced with full sentences. Every single day she is coming out with words that she never said before.

It's such a joy to see how much she has blossomed.

The bane of my existence

See this bastard. This sign will be my undoing one day. After sitting in snarling traffic for a minimum of one hour every bloody work day, this is what I see just as the traffic starts to clear a little. I swear it was put there just to mock me. One day I'll have a brain snap and go postal on that freaking smiley face.

Crafty boy strikes again

I turn my back for not even 10 minutes and a masterpiece has appeared. This is Liam's butterfly instructions and his butterfly made by said instructions.

Where's the party? I want to free my soul..

I want to lose control...
And lose control I did. LOL What kind of an idiot would have two birthday parties on the same day? I think you know the answer to that. So after having to work on my day off on Friday when I was planning on baking and organising everything for the family party at home, both Brian and I ended up running around like lunatics trying to get everything organised.

So we started off with Jack's 6th Birthday at 10am at Hungry Jack's.

Now that both the boys are at school we've decided that they can take tuns at having birthday parties with their school friends but still have a joint family party at home.

So this year was Jack's turn and he picked Hungry Jack's for the location.

A great time was had by all. The kids in his class are all so little and cute. I guess you really forget how little they all are until you see them all together.

Then there was the family party at home. I had to post this photo because I just loved it so much. It shows my boys pissing themselves laughing and Deakyn...well just being Deakyn LOL

There is nothing like catching up with old friends

Especially over a good meal and The Pavillion provided just that. Thanks for the dinner, the drinks & the laughs. Must catch up again soon. x ♥ x

I cannot believe that I am...

the parent of a 7 year old.

Seven years ago today I had the biggest life altering event happen to me - a new baby boy entered the world. I cannot even imagine him not being here, actually no - it'd be much quieter. LOL

To my big, loud, motor mouth, 5 million questions a day, nosy parker little boy who I wouldn't change for the world, Happy 7th Birthday.

Love you baby xx

Be my, be my baby

Be my little baby
Say you'll be my darling
Be my baby now
Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh

If looks could kill I would have withered on the spot as I sang this to my baby boy this morning. I was also indignantly informed "Mummmmmmmm, I'm not a baby".

Little does he know that I'll be singing this until I'm 6 feet under. He'll always be my baby boy - be it his 6th of 60th birthday.

Since he's insisted that I can't call him Boofy anymore, I want to wish a big huge fun filled 6th birthday to my baby boy, Jackasaurus.

Love you baby. xx

And yes for the EB police, it is candles stuck in ice cream. He doesn't like cake and this is what he wanted instead.

And kicking off the week of birthdays we have

a big happy birthday to Nan and to Aunty Nancy.

We dropped into Aunty Nancy's place for an impromptu visit for her birthday and to suss out her new place. I have to say that her house is beautiful and apart from that the boys had an absolute ball and keep asking me when they can go back and see their buddy Lachlan. Lachlan is their new obsession LOL. Poor Lachlan.

Add to that Imogen being in party food heaven. All I heard was "Cake Mummy. Caaaaaaaake".
