I have an idea!!
Let's all post a drawing done by our Septemberries!!
(I know I am safe from looking like a show off on this one because I am fairly certain Nate's will be the 'worst' LOL.)
I haven't got a photo of any right now but will take one later tonight or tomorrow. If you can, post away, I'd love to see the artworks your little ones are producing.

Great idea Kay
...see what I can find...Kai's drawings are amazingly variable, he is quite capable of astoundingly detailed pics, though will often quite happily sit there scribbling away just enjoying making marks on paper of different colours/patterns...

Damians drawing has declined a bit since his last drawing of "people" - now he cant do them anymore LOL but I'll upload one soon..
T - she's much better now thanks I havent used the nebuliser on her the last 2 days - not worth the screaming IMO and I dont think it's serious enough for it. I'm throwing her AB's in her milk in the morning and at night and her coughing has stopped so fingers crossed whatever it was is now gone.. Pathology never rang me back so the results of the swab mustve been negative?
I almost had a whole nights worth of sleep last night - havent slept that well since before I was pregnant! bubs only woke up once at 3am so not too bad
Better go and put dinner on

Hiya Kelly!!! Lovely to have you back! Great to hear things seem to be heading in a happier direction for you now, you deserve it. Hope to 'see' you around here a little more. I missed you!

im a bit emotional...
ive missed you girls...
didnt think id feel like this...
Posted 13 July 2010 - 09:17 PM
Hi Kelly!! Lovely to see you hun. I have often wondered how you've been. Sorry to hear you've had a rough few years. Sounds like things are heading in the right direction now though. We'd love to have you back posting regularly but I can understand how it might feel weird since it was something you did 'back then'. Do whatever feels right . We'd love to hear how your gorgeous kids are doing though. : Is Noah still Mr Action Man!? And I bet Kat is almost a fully fledged heartbreaker by now!
Posted 13 July 2010 - 09:48 PM
thanks kay...i think thats the reason it feels a bit wierd...the back then thing.
kat is 11 next month, but more like a young adult...always the grownup. she helped me so much with the move. we've been learning alot from one another. the past year in particular has seen us grow together in many ways.
noah is 5 in sept. (doh...you guys know that, lol.) yep...he's still full on. prep next year, but goes to daycare preschool when im at work. he's got stitches in the back of his head, countless lost toenails & one broken shoulder blade...fearless & unstoppable.he's become the man of the house...and is a smaller version of me, so we come to heads a hell of a lot. he's independent, very stubborn and wont accept help for anything.
im a tour guide at a local tourist place for 2.5yrs now...(not the zoo) and i love my work.

Hi there Kel!! missed ya! glad to hear you are doing well and getting on with things.
nothing much going on here, just getting through the holidays, they were meant to be quiet but things change hey! MIL is taking Zahli and Alannah to see Toy Story 3 and Paris and I are going to see Eclipse tomorrow at Macquarie.
Then trying to get things together to pack, 7 days to go!! I can't wait though I found out tonight that our friends we are going with (they have 3 kids too) will be seperating when they get back. man another one bites the dust (my BF seperated from her DH a month or so ago)
I just can't get my head around packing only summery things and not packing for winter. weird I know.
well must go to bed I guess
Posted 13 July 2010 - 10:34 PM
Great to see you back Kelly xoxoxo Missed you xoxoxoxo I still laugh about out attempts at opening that bottle of wine with an electric drill!!! It sound like Noah has been testing the boundaries of physical endurance!!! OUCH!!! Lovely to hear that you and Kat are growing together. She is a very special young lady.
I am revitalised after 2 weeks off work, but only 2 days back have started to drain me again. Have been trying to take better care of my health but I really am too lazy and weak willed to do it properly! Work seems to think I will be pregnant at any moment as they have given me the cruisey yard duties but they are wrong. Have some health issues to sort out before we can think of trying again. Looking more and more like Caius will be an only child.
When do they start losing teeth? I know of a few 4 year olds that have started losing theirs, but I always equated gappy teeth with school.....surely we have another..........6 months to go!!!!!!! I wish time would slow down!!!!!!!!
Karina - I am so stupidly jealous of you and your family for your trip to Fiji. I will continue to dream. The holidays just gone were meant to be a total 'get away, hang the expense'....we ended up being tight and went to Echuca (oh yay....not). One day I will be able to brag about a decent holiday......I hope!!!!
Take care, I do read but rarely get the chance to post. Know that I am thinking of you all xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Posted 13 July 2010 - 10:38 PM
When kids lose their teeth really varies - Tien lost his first when he was around 6.5 (halfway through year 1), and Kai has already lost his 2 bottom front and now has a top front wobbly
OMG Karina, your countdown is making me SOOOoooo jealous!!!!
Posted 14 July 2010 - 08:26 AM
I can't wait though I found out tonight that our friends we are going with (they have 3 kids too) will be seperating when they get back. man another one bites the dust (my BF seperated from her DH a month or so ago)Oh wow, I hope that's not awkward when you are away! When we were away we were saying that we can't ever imagine going away with another family. Must just be us antisocial misfits LOL.
Belle - Argh, I am so not ready for Nate to lose teeth
Mardi - Oh gosh honey, I hope you are okay. I hope you are able to have another baby, or if not that you are able to accept that and be at peace with it. I really hope you get a lovely holiday before too long too.
Well crazy busy day here and I have a headache. Had it last night, took some drugs and slept 10 hours and woke up feeling just as bad. Don't know what I"m going to do about this.
Posted 14 July 2010 - 10:12 AM
Hi Kel!!! Been way too long. OMG Noah is scary lol!
Holy crap Belle - that is freaky!
Thought Lor was going to lose one of his front teeth - he ran face first into the kitchen bench - chipped one (jagged corner bit now) - and the other was loose - but seems to have come good now.
That's great Lynny. Boys are sick here - L coughed most of the night last night - and had him in Emergency night before. Gaah. Both home from care today (and G didn't go last week) - so behind with work.
I'm so tired, have their virus, had maybe 4 hours sleep and a splitting headache. Whinge, whinge.
On a positive note, new cleaners are here - and they are blitzing the place.
Nice Karina - another one who is jealous here. ;p But yes - wow - will that be a bit weird? I'd find it uncomfortable.
Oh Mardi - I do hope you get a decent holiday - it sounds like you could do with a bit of a lengthier time out.
Miranda - did you say Charlotte is 115cms?!!! Holy heck. Lor's 113 and I thought that was tall!
Speaking of. Getting a bit concerned about him physically. He is so darn skinny. He weighs 17.5 ks - and, as mentioned above - he's very tall (96th percentile I think). He lost two kilos in May and was down to 16kgs. His little brother weighs more than him. His wrists are like twigs. Does this sound odd? Does anyone else's kid weigh so little? I should check and see where he is on the charts for weight... He eats HEAPS. But he does not, will not drink milk, or eat cheese (anymore - he used to). He eats yoghurt, icecream etc.
Posted 14 July 2010 - 10:26 AM
Mardi - Sorry must have missed the bit about your health issues. I hope you can get them sorted out soon. Geez I wish I could pop over and visit you, gosh all you girls are soo damn far away
T It's hard to say whether Ls weight would be of concern...In the pics I've seen of him on FB he looks skinny, but not too skinny IYKWIM. Though you say he's lost more since then? I was always a VERY skinny kid, though I also hardly ate anything, so not quite the same. Strange that he would eat so much and still be so skinny.....have the drs mentioned anything about it at any of his visits?

No they haven't Belle - I might bring it up next time.
You know, I've got a horrible feeling he's got whooping cough again.
Posted 14 July 2010 - 11:09 AM
Kelly!! How are you woman! Been thinking about you so much over the last few months/years It's so nice to hear from you again So sorry to hear about all the stuff you went through but glad that it's all worked out so beautifully for you. Sounds like Kat has been your little rock to lean on.. she's such a gorgeous and mature little thing. Noah must be keeping you on your toes though - eek to all those injuries! lol
T - oh no - so sorry to hear about the boys You just never seem to get a break With L's weight, agree thats very skinny but if he's eating okay I wouldnt worry about it. The girl over the road from us is 4 (5 in february) and she's about 16-17kgs (Emily weighs the same if not more!). She's also very tall and her mum isnt a small person, her dad is 6"1 so no small genes in the family. Her baby brother is 2 in december and he now weighs more than her. I've got pics of her and Damian on Facebook somewhere.. her names Amelia (in case you wanted to see what she looks like etc) Oh and for the record.. Amelia hates dairy too - icecream, yoghurt, cheese, milk etc..
Belle - omg! I still can't believe how advance your boys are - what are you feeding them?
Kay - hope you feel better today! Nurofen Zavance is good! Lol at not being ready for the toothfairy I felt a bit teary last night myself.. Can't believe he's almost 5
Mardi - thinking of you. Hope you feel better soon - you sound really tired and drained atm
Karina - you sure you dont need someone to carry your bags for you on your trip *hint* *hint* sorry to hear about your friends though
Shezza - I know you love it when I call you that how's the competition going?
AFM - better go and work out what to do for dinner.. the never ending battle to please 4 people's palates
PS. what can I do with the left over Ventolin I have? It seems like such a waste to bin it

That was a lot of posts!
Heck - how did Kat get to be 11! Missed you heaps in here. Really, REALLY glad to see you back. Sorry you have been through such a rough time!
Teeth - Hannah really wants a loose tooth. I am not really into the whole gappy teeth look, so I am more than happy for her to wait!!
Belle - I can't believe Kai has lost 2 already! Is there anything that boy isn't miles ahead at? lol!
T - Hannah is 108cm last check (although that was a while ago - so maybe 109/110ish) and is only about 15ish kg, from memory. She is just really slim. I will weigh her tonight when she gets in from kinder.
Karina - the trip is so close! Have a really fantastic time! I really hope that the situation with the other family doesn't get too awkward.
Kay - I am with you! I am not a fan of travelling with others. I have done it in short stints a couple of times, but never for more than a day or two (other than when we stayed with friends while away, and that drove me insane! I used Christmas and the pending wedding as an excuse to move out to a hotel).
Mardi - take care of yourself. If you want a break sometime, just let me know. I would love to catch up, even just for a coffee or something. xx
Lynny - how is Alec going? I can't believe he is sleeping so well already! I wish I lived closer. I would love to come and meet him (and Em for that matter!)
Toby started his new care today - the first time he has been in care since he broke his leg (other than a one hour visit to his old creche about 2 weeks after he broke his leg).
He was ace! I told him beforehand that he was going to care, and it was just like Hannah's kinder (which he loves, and also to help him understand that I was leaving, just like we leave Hannah at kinder). I also told him that he was going to stay and play with the kids, and I was going to go and do some work.
In theory today was about both of us being there so he could get to know the place, but they had said that I was welcome to leave hom for a little while, so I went there, took him in, talked to the carers a little about him (the reaction when I told the carers in his room that he was 4 months off being 3 was hilarious! Poor midget). Then he seemed to be waiting to be told what to do next, so I figured I may as well say goodbye and see how he reacted. I told him that I was going to work, and that he was going to stay with Kim and play with the kids for a while, and then left.
Absolutely no fuss from him what so ever. When I got back he was happy to see me, and was telling me about how he played with the kids and ate sausage (I think he was thinking about the toy sausage he was playing with at Hannah's kinder this morning, because they had soup for lunch - lol). The staff loved him - one of them offered to take him full time. lol. He was quite happy with the idea of going back next week.
I love my adaptable little guy!!
Meanwhile, I think tomorrow is going to be a trip back to the Dr as he has a cold which is making his asthma play up again. This trip will have him back onto the preventer (basically last time the Dr said if that if it happens again he will go back on).
OK - I think that is me done! I will get onto the drawing thing tomorrow - I have just moved my computer into the new studio, and I have not set up the printer/scanner yet.

Keep it Lynny. You may need it again.
Just had a freaky experience. SIL and her two little girls were here, Leo is at care so just me and Nate. We decided to take the kids to the park out the back. When we came back (our back gate opens onto the park) I shut the gate and then looked back and could see a person there (there's a hole for your hand to go through to open the gate). I was just looking to see if it was a neighbour I recognised and he turned around and I copped an eyeful of his p*nis!!! I reacted (quietly) and so of course my 5 year old niece runs over to have a look and I had to get her away. My SIL looked out and he had his pants done up again (he was talking on the phone) and so we thought maybe he was just having a whizz in the bushes but then she looked again and he had it out again.
So I called out that I was calling the cops if he didn't leave. He didn't react at all to that so we came inside. I didn't really want to call the cops as he'd know it was me. SIL went out again a bit later and he was nowhere to be seen. There is building going on at our neighbours house and I'm pretty sure he was a builder. Still it has unsettled me a lot as we go out there often and it was literally right behind our gate. It seems unlikely he didn't see us as he seemed to appear, just after we came in the gate. Eeeeeewwwww!!!!!

Ewww Kay! Hopefully he was just taking a leak!
T - I just checked - Hannah is 109cm and 15.9kg. That puts her and L at the same point on the BMI charts, once you apply gender.
If he is losing weight, it is not a good thing, but if he is staying at 17.5, then I would say it is not really an issue. If he was struggling with weight on an ongoing basis it would effect his overall growth, and given his height, I think he should be fine!
Given Hannah's genetic background on my side, I am VERY happy for her to be a slim kid!!! I would rather her end up on the underweight (for the right reasons) side than struggling with weight issues.
Posted 14 July 2010 - 05:09 PM
Kay - I'd call the cops anyway. Seriously - not a good thing at all.
Posted 14 July 2010 - 05:49 PM
I know what you mean T but I'm worried that it might just p*ss him off. I might leave a note in the letterbox for the owners, although I don't think they're living there atm. If I see him again I'll definitely be calling the cops.
