You have been so busy this week. I have been sooo slack! I am trying to catch up on my washing tonight but it's a looong sloooow process.
Jannette my heart breaks for you and Shea with the play centre issue (Grrrr I would have been furious!) and also with him becoming aware of his limitations.
Ping I am very excited for you too! I am really looking forward to seeing a birth announcement BUT hopefully not for a few weeks! Great to hear that you had a good Mother's Day too.
Gina you sound like me, LOVE my own kids but looking after others would drive me nuts unlike my sister and Mum who both have done child care for years! So, let us know about this new venture......
Is anyone still having major attitude issues with their 6 year olds? Josh is not accountable for anything, no matter what happens it's always mine or Brett's fault, never his own. He's also talking back and has picked up some choice words from school which he was yelling out in our back yard the other day! OMG I almost died of embarrassment when I heard him (inside Scarlett's room with the window and door closed so the neighbours would def had heard it!). Thankfully he is still going well at school and is extra well behaved there!
His eczema is terrible at the moment which IS my fault I thought he was growing out of it because it's been great for months so I've been using fabric softener since Sunday. This morning I caught him when he got out of the shower and his belly is red raw as is his legs and arms. I feel terrible and have had to rewash all of his clothes. He didn't tell me though.
Isabella is little miss attitude too at the moment, today I asked her to do something and she simply said NO! I asked her a couple of times again and again she said NO! She went into time out after that lol! She went to school without knickers on Monday too I got a call at 9.30 from her teacher to bring some to school but the funny thing is that she wasn't even aware that she didn't any on, when the teacher asked her if she was wearing any, Isabella had to have a look!
She's also being a major drama queen! While in time out she was wailing about being in the wrong family, that no one loves her, that she needs to go away and find some one that cares I didn't think this started for a few years.
Scarlett though, she is my delight. Yes I'm her Mother BUT she is the brightest, funniest, happiest baby ever (ever people, EVER!). She always says Ta when handed something, she has been waving and saying ta ta for months and now does the actions to twinkle twinkle and even says star! She also eats anything which, after two very fussy kids, is sooo fantastic! Even revolting concoctions like tonight was beans, carrot & zuchini with chicken I was very hesitant giving it to her but she liked it so I made a batch and froze it
