Posted 6:30 AM on Thu-11-Sep-2014
I woke up in a hurry last night as my husband was frantically trying to clean up a sick toddler.  From 1am on, once we got her back into clean clothes and tidied up, it was not much sleep for either of us.  Every little noise she made jerked us awake.  Around 2:30am she was sick again.Another tense discussion about who goes to work, has lead to us splitting the duties today.  I have to go (my work load is urgent), he has to go (his team is low in numbers and needs him).  I just can't help but wonder why we are having to think about this so soon after the last time.  I have not had a full week of work in almost a month.  And I wasn't exactly feelin

Mount Washmore
Posted 1:14 PM on Thu-28-Aug-2014
several hours of sorting through the washing on the weekend to declutter the lounge and I was feeling so good about it.  Even the Mister noticed.  But a week of sick toddler and it's blardy all back, isn't it.  I can not win this battle against my laundry pile.And the lounge looks like a tip again, because of course she is home.  She is not 100% but she i playing here and there and making a mess as usual.Why do we even bother?    Oh yeah, I don't normally....

Scary moments
Posted 1:54 PM on Tue-26-Aug-2014
When you are a parent, nothing prepares you for those moments when you are genuinely scared for your child.  I've had three of those moments so far, and I'm sure many more are sitting in the future taunting me. The first time, was when L was 2 days old.  I was sitting in the birth centre, talking to my husband when she started started to fit or so I thought.  I had read about temperature changes bringing on fits in babies and so I wasn't too worried until she started to turn this deep black/purple colour.  We buzzed for a nurse over and over, and eventually my husband just picked her up and ran with her to the nurses station.  There I stood in the door Read More...

Pink Eye
Posted 6:14 AM on Wed-20-Aug-2014
On Monday he said "isn't it great that neither kid has been sick this winter about from a sniffle here and there".  I looked at him like his head was made of rocks.  Now he had done it.  Last night when I came home from a gruelling day, with many more in store for me this week (new job, lots to learn and heaps of things on the to do list...) I am greeted by pink eye.  Yup my toddler is sick.  The kinda sick that doesn't go to daycare.When I was breastfeeding I could have just squirted her in the eye and it would have fixed itself within a day. But no such luck anymore.  So it's off to the doctor for her today.  I am doing a half day Read More...

Toddler Bake Day
Posted 10:03 PM on Sun-10-Aug-2014
When Miss 7 was 2, we would go into the kitchen and bake up a storm together.  She has been baking every few months with me, since then and she loves the creative process.  It occured to me that Miss 2 would probably love to get baking with me this weekend and so I decided to test that thought today.I picked a cafe style chocolate cupcake in a box recipe.  That way, it would be easy enough while still needing a little measuring.  She stood on the chair as her sister has all these years and I enjoyed this special time with her.  She was a little upset that i did most of the liquid tipping, but we talked about the measures and what I was doing.  We talked about th Read More...

Favourite and not so Favourite sounds
Posted 10:46 PM on Sun-3-Aug-2014
There is that saying, you know?  My children's laughter is my favourite sound, the sound of their deep breathing when they are fast asleep is a close second.  More truer words, never typed lol - especially after a monster day like we had today.  Lots of fun at a friend's birthday party.  He did a full on kid's party for himself with lollies and rainbow cake, games and a pinata.  So fun!But I'm currently sitting downstairs listening to my toddler, singing and chatting away at almost 11pm. Whoops.  Not that it isn't terribly cute, but it's not going to seem cute when I sneak in there to have a sleep next to her cot.  Go to sleep

My little mimic
Posted 7:23 PM on Thu-26-Jun-2014
Lately when we sit down with a reader, Miss A sits down next to her big sister.  Her sister reads her book, and she does her own "reader". She traces the words across the page, turns the pages and vocalises all the same as her sister. It's terribly cute.  Of course this hero worship is not without it's pitfalls though.  The other night I said to her "bedtime" and she replied clear as a bell "Oh yeah right!" - full of attitude lol.  25 months old going on 25 years?!  or at least 7

Toddler Talk
Posted 11:06 PM on Tue-3-Jun-2014
Miss 2 is having an amazing explosion of language at the moment and I thought I would share a few funnies from her:A is wandering about the lounge with a monkey backpack on: a monkey! Oh, oh, oh. A monkey! Oh, oh, oh.  Wasn't til later I realised she was making monkey noises and not just singing.A points to the chocolates. 'You can have two only. One, two". A: fee?A "reading" The Cat's Pyjamas - ohhhh, ohhhh down. He faaa down brekky!!!!   Yes he fell asleep in his breakfast.I'm finding her use of words so exciting. There is still a lot of pointing and grunting in the general direction, but as she realises the power of her words, it's so

You wrapped Dolly in WHAT?!
Posted 4:27 PM on Wed-21-May-2014
Having a home day with A because she has been so tired and out of sorts for the last day or two.  But there just doesn't seem to be much wrong with her.  She was playing up a storm earlier and I turn around and she has put all her dollies to bed on the sofa.  All of them wrapped up lovingly.  In my undies.  Fair enough, they are big enough to work as a dolly receiving blanket....

Now we are 2
Posted 6:57 AM on Tue-6-May-2014
I hope you like photos, because this blog is going to be photo rich.This time 2 years ago, I was lying semi-awake in Waikato Hospital with the odd niggle keeping me awake.  Every time I felt it get stronger I went for a walk to the bathroom and back.  This had been going on since 9pm the night before.  I had been at the hospital nearly 24 hours waiting for an induction, but there had been a lot of emergencies going on in Delivery, so I was up in the wards for the night.Around 9am my midwife came to take me back to Delivery Suite.  I remember the excitement when Audra had moved down more, because we were going to have to do a controlled membrane rupture.  She had been Read More...
