I have 3 snotty children today and finally have them all in bed, after a pretty trying day. As I didn't want to take them out, there was major cabin-fever going on, but I managed to pacify them by having a big cookie baking session. I am putting off cleaning up the kitchen - it looks like a flour bomb has exploded! I found out today that my 2 yo boy can crack eggs like a professional - maybe a mini Jamie Oliver!
Does anyone else have a bub that insists on feeding themselves? Max is constantly grabbing the spoon and squealing if I don't let him have it, so consequently he, I, the highchair and anyone in the vicinity ends up covered in mushed pumpkin or whatever.
Christy - good to hear from you. Hope you enjoy Melbourne and meeting up with the Melbourne girls
Chantz and Perthies - Hope you guys have a wonderful meet. Photos please!
Jen - Hope the quarantine is going OK. Does Mark have to have a long time off work?
Lisa - Hope your new house is great, would love to see some pics. How convenient having a bottle shop over the fence! Love it!
Kylie - Sorry can't get too excited over Shannon, however if I get to touch Robbie, I think I would keel over on the spot!
BBM - Hi there Karen! Sounds like you are flat out busy at the moment. How are the boys going?
Pas - Always interested in new recipes. Post away please!
Nadine - Hope you got yr shower in! I tend to bath with the kids each evening, but love my showers too although the kids now follow me in there too
Ana - I would offer to have a tupperware party except its a bit far! I was baking today and using my Tupperware scales and thinking how cool they are
OK that's my lazy last 10.. Hi to everyone else. Bubsy - I am waiting with baited breath to find out if you get a BFP.
Oh yes, my SIL had a baby boy y'day - hoping to see him soon, but prob not this we'nd if kids still have colds!
Alright night night all, sarzx

Party0f4 - i know what a catalogue release for tupperware is like. It's crazy!! i can't wait to see the new catalogue. I'm hoping my old manager will send me one (used to sell it after #2, did it for about a year). I still get all the updates from the distributor through email... which is cool, i just wish i could afford to buy more!
Delbo - glad to hear it was nothing serious with Charlotte. poor little mite! hope she's feeling better today.
Melbourne meet - yep it's all set for Monday, 10am, Knox Playdays. can't wait!
Lisa- glad to hear you are finally in the new place. Must have been nice watching other people do all the hard work for you!
Sazry - YES, Penny eats better when she holds the spoon herself! She's not overly keen on solids in any way yet, but seems to get more in her mouth that stays in her mouth when she's holding the spoon herself!! it's messy, but it keeps her happy and she's trying things so it's ok. just means more washing *groan*
ok, better go, DH needs to type up minutes for a kinder meeting (he's the committee secretary!)

OOOOOOH Goodness Chantz you'd better get yourself into bed - you sound terrible!!! hehe
Don't worry about coming late - it is "lunch" so we can wait for you. What time do you think you'd make it?
See everyone else at about 10.30am - yay!!

Just popping in quickly to say that Will is now officially a "sleeping through" baby!!
Yay for us
Not much else to report.. Busy busy with garage sale preparations (even though its forecast to rain Sat am) and farewell party prepartions for Sunday.
DS#1 saw his Development Paed on Tuesday, to check in with him before we leave town. I was expecting a quick visit to get the final tick in the box that James' speech delay was coming back on track nicely BUT instead we got more ??? hanging over our sons head. Basically the Paed has said that although he doesnt think James is autistic, he cant rule it out . Im trying not to waste my energy worrying about this (in my heart of hearts I dont believe he is autistic) but its always on my mind. Its one of those things that only time will tell.. And in the meantime I spend my days watching everything he does and wondering if its a "normal" thing for him to be doing.
Its not a great situation but we will be ok, I know there are plenty of worse things that our child could be diagnosed with.
Anyhow, I best be off to bed..
Take care girls xxx
PS 8th is the date for the night meet isnt it? Ive pencilled all you Sydney ladies in for that night.. Cant wait

KimV- now I recall what it is called..sessions..lol usually I would need alot of alcohol to be able something like that..the music gets really loud but I guess it keeps you awake..some ppl were going home with car loads full of gifts..I am happy with my 2 bags full I sooo dont want to quit doin it cause I want to be able to see whats on offer before it happens plus the discount...but my distributor has a website that I can look at for now..but I think they maybe moving site which requires a password soon
sarzy- aww thats sweet..I wish those scales weighed me aswell..mine dont get used very often atm cause of my dieting.
Nadine- Tupperware parties are fun..specially when you get a great Tupper chicky...I blow at it..so I end up just doing cooking demos..ppl love tasting afterwards.
I think i am missing whats happening to Chantz
Does anyone know where I can buy some pure white christening shoes? either online or in a store in Sydney?

Perth girls - Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow! Hopefully I'll be on time but it will all depend on when Laura wakes from her morning nap. Normally she's awake by 10.00am which will get me there by 10.30am but knowing my luck tomorrow she'll decide to have a long nap or something. Yesterday and today she had 1 1/2 hours in the morning which is not like her at all.
Chantz - You're not sounding too well there! A day off work sounds like a good idea! See you tomorrow!!
Suzy - Sorry to hear about your trip to the paed. It must be really worrying for you when you just have to wait and see how things turn out with James. ((hugs)).

Nightnight everyone - I forgot to say to the Perthies - If anyone did want to bring their pram - I'll open the gate on the left-hand side of the house leading around to the back - that way so you don't have to go up the front steps.
