Wow Aston is 18months its has gone quick!!
We go to sleep school next week, CAN NOT WAIT!!! he was going well for a 2 days and then it all turned to crd again...he has been sick the poor thing i now have him on the nebulizer with saline and ventolin (doc orders, he just couldnt kick this cough and was really wheezy) i NEED him better by the end of teh week or we cnat go to karitane so i have evryrhting crossed that he improves.
Kaiden is doing well, i am so happy with his behaviour of late, he is doing well and not many tantrums at all, only when he wakes up on the wrong side of the bed lol
Hi to everyone, sorry i have been a slacko, really having been on eb much!! Hope ou and your bubbas are all doing well1

OK got slack coming in on the weekend
Sandra, Thankyou. She is named Lacey Joy. She is just gorgeous. I've had 2 visits already. She was born y'day morning. My sister has really bad juvenile arthritis and has had since age 8. So many thought she could not give birth naturally, she was pushed by dr's to have a caesar. She had the perfect birth. Lacey arrived in the caul, in the bath, drugfree labour, tiniest tear that didn't require a stitch at all. They are home already and doing fab!
What a weird guy, I don't think I would want to work for him either, lol
I never answer private numbers. If I can't see who it is, I don't pick it up. On the mobile or home phone,lol
Jodie, Hope the sleep school helps out. Is he not sleeping well at all? Hope he is better asap.
Donna, School runs no different as they walk anyhow. We finally have them all at one school and it's walking difference. BUt yes sports are a bit easier. I am loving him on his p's already. Few things are already easier and I have someone to run some errands now, pmsl
Hope the boys are better asap. Yay on doing the run. Hope you have a great time.
Kat, Well done on the tting going so well. Wow not much longer now, where did that time go.
GOIng to leave it there, sorry guys. Need to open the tab and it's late and I have a few chores to do.
Working tomorrow. Thomas will go into cc with the kids so all good. Older boys are still in Qld until thurs. They are having a blast at all the theme parks, Aus Zoo, etc. 2 weeks of school holidays now.
All good around here (except car issues) Not a great deal to post about, that you wouldn't have read on FB
Better go, will bbs
I really need to get a new sig made hey

Oh I love the name Lacey. Glad that she did well. Speaking of theme parks we took the boys to movie world on sat and they loved it. We bought the $100 fun pass for a whole year. It's movie world,seaworld(which i think they will love the most) and wet' n'wild. Pretty good price considering adult entry to get into seaworld and movieworld is $74.
Im sure your boys will have heaps of fun.
Cohen is pushing/running his tonka truck inside and Aston thinks Cohen is going to run him over in it. Aston runs around the house (I don't think he little chubby short legs can carry him) screaming. It was rather amusing
Posted 06 July 2010 - 07:02 PM
Last year I got the girls 3 world passes for their birthday, it was $50 for adults and $30 for kids... we went to seaworld twice and movieworld once.... seaworld is definitely the best!! Especially in the warmer months as thesection with water slides is open and you can go swimming!! But the polar bears and all the animals of seaworld are cool.. it's more catered to younger kids I think. Movieworld was good, but basically all the same rides as seaworld but not the extra entertainment.
I want to take the girls to Dreamworld next

Sandra I loved reading about you waking up to Aston playing cars on your head!
I've thought about weekend work too, but I know I'd miss spending time with DH home and all of us just relaxing together. Plus I'm lazy
Gracie's sleeping is a bit better, but we'll see how she goes tonight as she's sick
I can't believe that Aston is 18 months old soon that's just amazing, you know - I still think of him as being a new baby
Oh and that guy who interviewed you - what a nutter!
Donna, nice to hear from you.
Yes, the comic book.... I was going to do the artwork for one - the digital colouring to be exact, but since I haven't heard from the Editor/publisher (he's so unorganised) in months I'm taking it that the project is off... and if I do hear from him I'll decline it now anyway, I don't have the time any more, and I'd prefer not to wonder and wait months for payment....
Oh well - their loss
Glad to hear I'm not the only one who's child just wants to play on the toilet.
.... and good on ya for joining up to the 'city to surf' You'll feel so much healthier in 6 weeks time! I'd love to take a leaf outta your book, but as mentioned previously - I'm lazy
I hope that things are going well with Dane at his sleep school Jodie, you must miss Kaiden and DH so much
..but then it's gotta be worth it if it helps keep the family sane and rested! So fingers crossed you both come outta there happier
Congrats to you on the birth of your niece Kristy, and congrats to your strong Sister for defying the odds!
US, I've been so busy the last couple of weeks that I haven't had a chance to get onto here or FB
Grace has caught a nasty cold from DH, who caught it from his brother and niece Grrrr
It was DH's birthday last thursday so I threw a party for him on Sat afternoon, BIL came up with his DD (4yr old) but didn't tell us they were sick. They stayed the night and I only noticed the next morning (was running around for the party all night) that DN had a green nose. I asked BIL and he was all yeah - we've got colds.
SO here we are again, but this time poor Grace has been hit hard, her temp was 38.8 tonight, but luckily we'd just given her panadol so it dropped pretty quick.
She's asleep now and we'll keep checking on her through the night.
My nose is starting to run too now so I am NOT HAPPY JAN
Other than that like I said BUSY, I took me 2 weeks to get organised for DH's party, we had a fiesta !
Was so much fun making the mexican decorations and mexican food. ...
Then we've had SIL and her DH and 4 kiddies staying with us, they left this morning, but stay with us again on friday (if were not all too sick)
Then DH's 2 best mates stay the night and have a boys night on Sat...
I'm looking forward to being able to slow down a bit soon.
Anyhoo, I'm off to bed, so tired and need to rest up incase I'm up all night with Miss G.
I hope everyone is well
Oh - and don't mind the spelling, can't be bothered with spell check tonight!

Sorry I've been MIA, school is back and we are getting back into our routines.
We went to Port Fairy for a few days, Ben then went to Dromana with his grandparents for a few days, Arch and I went down after the first night too.
I got a Distinction for my Masters subject very happy!
Donna - I hope sleep school is working for you.
Marika - bugger about the colds, how inconsiderate
Posted 19 July 2010 - 10:10 AM
hi guys havnt been in for a while
Marika a BIG FAT massive congrats on #2, how very exciting you are due around the same time as my sister, i bet gracie is going to be super excited to have a baby brother or sister
re sleep school was good, the day time he is doing SOOO much better which is great but the night is still a big tough waking alot, however the last 2 nights have been much, much better but last night we resorted to the pram/stoller next to our bed and rocking for 5 mins until he was asleep (was awake for 1.5hrs ) but he then sleeps for 5hrs straight in the pram so i was just happy to get a decent sleep lol
i did miss kaiden heaps, he came in for a quick visit and when he saw me, ran with his arms opena nd said 'my mummy' then gave me a big kiss and looked at me and grabbed my head and pulle dit in for another big kiss lol was so sweet it made all the other mums teary as they had other kiddies they had left at home for the week.
Posted 19 July 2010 - 08:49 PM
Was wondering how long it would take someone in here to catch on
We're pretty chuffed, and I know Gracie will be too, she LOVES her baby cousin and talks about her all the time . This is our niece that I babysit - although not sure how much longer that will last because I have pretty bad morning sickness, and just looking after Gracie at this stage is a real stuggle...
I also have the cold from hell, I'm so sick of coughing. It's almost hard to breath at night because I'm so congested
Oh Jodie that made me teary reading how Kaiden ran up to you in the sleep school. Darn hormones!
It must have been so hard leaving him behind.
Great to hear Dane's sleep has improved, I hope it continues to get better and that your nights get much easier. You must be just soooo tired.
Off to sit still for a bit
Posted 20 July 2010 - 12:23 AM
Marika - congratulations!!!!!
God, will we EVER not be sick in this household? Sorry for the whinge, but I'm trying to get over a chest infection and DH has been down with a nasty head cold. Eleanor woke up at 11pm sobbing her heart out with a barking cough and poor hoarse voice. Have dosed her up with Panadol, but I was hoping for a nice sleep tonight. Fingers crossed. (I won't even mention Meggie in case I jinx her too! he he)
Jodie, sweet little Kaiden. I bet you missed him sorely. Glad the sleep school has helped, hopefully Dane will get better and better at it.
Kristy, congratulations on your new little niece. She looks gorgeous in the photo! A big well done to your amazing sister, what a toughie she is.
Sandra, hopefully the job hunt is going well.
Lia, we should catch up soon. Perhaps next week, when I'm no longer Typhoid Mary?
Posted 20 July 2010 - 02:45 PM
Jo hope you house hold gets better soon, not fun... poor little Dane has just got his 2nd lot of Bronchilitis in 3 weeks.. i now really hate winter!!!!
Lia, well done on your distinction
Marika poor bugger, hope the morning sickness comes and goes nice and quick
Daneo is doing much better at night but i have been naughty as putting him in the pram if i cant get him to sleep within 30mins...but he is sleeping better in the pram, i am sleeping better, josh is sleeping better so the household is much happier so doing whatever works! we put him in his cot every night and its getting later in the night that he is waking so hopefully he will eventually start to sleep through.... well thats the plan anyway lol
Posted 20 July 2010 - 09:23 PM
Thanks Lia and Jo
Ya do what ya gotta do Jodie! For a while there we could only get Grace to sleep in her pram... it would take us hours and hours of rocking it over our carpet bump, then once she was down we'd have to transfer her to her cot... It was bloody hard but we had to do it for our sanity otherwise she just wouldn't sleep. We took turns each night, and it lasted for a couple of months
I really hope he improves for you.
Argghhhhh can't believe we're going to go through all of that again!
Posted 21 July 2010 - 07:23 PM
Jodie -my girls used to sleep in their rockers a heck of a lot in the first year. I'd bounce them to sleep and then be too scared to move them!
Posted 22 July 2010 - 10:57 PM
Lia, we should catch up soon. Perhaps next week, when I'm no longer Typhoid Mary? laughing2.gif
Definitely! If the weather is good we could meet at Wombat Bend park, its kind of midway between us, its the best park too
A GF and I went and saw Inception today...... not bad Oh, I forced myself to see Eclipse last week . I felt like a dirty old woman looking at Taylor Lautner

Oh WOW i haven't been in here for ages and I was reading Marikas post then I looked at her sig (always do) and I noticed it said baby due in March So so excited for you Marika. How do you feel? Awesome news.
Im clucky, but these two boys at the moment make me not want anymore.
Hope you all feel better soon at that the morning sickness settles down for you.
I forced myself to see Eclipse last week . I felt like a dirty old woman looking at Taylor LautnerOh Lia I cracked up reading that. Considering he is 16-17 or something It felt wrong perving on him too
When the boys were babies they too slept in the rocker and the pram,but mainly the rocker. Used to go through lots of batteries,but it was a life saver when all we wanted to do was sleep.
Glad it well at sleep school Jodie hope it continues for you. I bet that melted your heart what Kaiden did. Gorgoeus.
Hope you all feel better Jo.
Not much happening here. I did get offered a job at the super IGA. But they rang me back and said that they hired too many people and have to offer the positions to the other people who they asked first but that's ok. I will look for something else.
The boys have really been testing my patience in the last few wks. I haven't really had a break,so I'm going to stay at a friends place this wknd. Kinda have had enough of Ryder and I would love to move closer to public transport and shops. I feel real lonely here
Cohen is still being a crap sleeper. Had some good days, but that has long gone.
Anyway that's about it.
Posted 23 July 2010 - 08:12 PM
I like this surprising people
I feel pretty shabby right now Sandra, MS is bad and this cold I have just isn't budging, but then DH had it for nearly 3 weeks
This PGcy is already so different to Gracies. I didn't get any MS with her and it's here almost all day with this one, I didn't feel any tireder with Grace but I'm so knackered with this one that twice now I've fallen asleep for a second or two when I'm reading to the girl or having quiet plays with her, and both times DH has been at work That's something I've really got to be careful with,
I'm also finding it hard to eat ATM. The very thought of most foods turn my stomach, but at the same time I'm so queezy that I need to eat then and there. Not fun.
So all in all this teeny tiny baby is not endearing it'self to me right now
We had a scare last weekend where I had a bleed, so I had to race off to hospital because I needed an anti-d injection (I'm a negative BT) and then we waited two days until monday to have a scan and make sure 'Bubbles' was still alive.... and there it was; a beautiful little blob with a strong HB Both DH and I had a tear! DR thinks the bleed may have been caused by excessive coughing from this freaking cold
I just wish I didn't feel so sick.
Sorry you're having a rough time Sandra, wish we lived closer, then you'd never feel lonely
Hope you have some good 'you' time with your friend this weekend.
Oooo Lia Taylor Lautner is my favourite! There's just something about him that makes me drool! YUM
I still haven't seen Eclipse yet even though I'm such a sad TwiFan (I'm a tad obsessed), but I haven't had a chance to go to the cinema. Might have to push the issue though, I think another Taylor fix is needed

kaiden is doing well, think he is still getting some teeth, wish they will hurry the heck up!
ok dinner time, best be off to feed the children lol
Posted 31 July 2010 - 08:50 PM
Congratulations Marika! And Lori and Michelle!
I've been clucky lately but I'm just not ready yet. I would like to try in about another 2 years but then worry that it might be too much of a gap but I don't want to be pregnant at this point in time.
I hate it when you get disrupted just before you finish catching up the thread and forget most of what you have read.
Donna - We ended up going for the single bed and trundle. Then the day before we picked it up I changed my mind and paid the extra $21 for the bunk beds. He loves it so much and gives me the extra room for stuffed toys (I curse stuffed toys!!!) How does Toby handle the cold? Alex has rarely gotten sick and we have done swimming through 3 winters now but it's amazing at the end of april how many children got pulled out of my classes. I can understand if you have a child who gets a cold that goes for 3 weeks why you'd not bother in winter. It's all about water familarisation at this age. Good luck with open uni.
I have just finished my austswim qualification last month and have now got my qualification for infantaquatics (babies, toddlers and preschoolers) but my mum has had to go back to work so I had to give up the day she had Alex (I couldn't get him in daycare either) It means I now only work 4 hours a week!!! At least it keeps my qualification up. I don't know what I am going to do, I love beign home with Alex but loved the extra $ too. No play money now but we already have booked and paid for Bali in October so yay!
Kat - Good luck with bub #3 Do you know what you are having?
Alex was never a bad sleeper as a baby. MAN am I getting pay back now. I'm so sick of him ending up in Bed with me. The last week though he has been going to sleep better.
Jodie - Hope you little man is sleeping better now.
Gotta go and have dinner. But hope to be back in soon.
Posted 02 August 2010 - 11:54 AM
I PMed you Kat, my number has changed
Well I had a big weekend, went to Sydney and caught up with 2 fabulous single mummies, Maddy and CJ. I'm still recovering LOL. Crazy times.
I have a pole perfect aerobics class tonight!! Should be interesting! I won a 6 week course on facebook. Sandra is babysitting the kiddies for me because she is so awesome!
Posted 02 August 2010 - 12:10 PM
Thanks for the congrats girls
Wooo Lori, we can be big fat whales and whinge and whine together!
Had a couple of good days last week but whoa, feeling pretty horrid since, vomiting makes me feel a tad better, but the laa day queezy is starting to get to me a bit.
I saw your pics Mel, looks like you had an awesome time with Maddi and CJ
Wahooo to having a date Kat! 18 days to go!!! It's so exciting!!!
Yay to Dane sleeping well Jodie! keep it up you cute little Ogre ! I saw our sig request pics, soo cute! I might have a play for you one day - that's if I feel better any time soon...
Hope you cold isn't too bad.
Sorry Alex is sleeping bad too Sonia, hope it's a short lived phaze.
I'm waiting for our brand new Queen bed to be delivered today we also got side tables.
Ohh it's sooo nice, didn't realise how horrid our old one was until we tested out some new ones in the shop on Sat.
We thought a new bed and mattress might help us both as neither of us are sleeping well, Nicholas because of his back, and me because I can't get comfortable on our concave lumpy peice of crap!
Hopefully if I have some better sleep my MS will ease up..?.....
Edited by Abbygirl, 02 August 2010 - 12:11 PM.
Posted 02 August 2010 - 12:42 PM
Marika yay to the new mattress, We have a nice comfy one and I find it so hard sleeping in a different bed. Hope the ms settles soon.. And yay to having a play with those pics if you have time, they are so cute
Mel sounds like you had a good time away
