Nicki, the change being that sudden would be difficult. Has anything else changed that you think may have contributed, or purely just an age thing ?

It sucks when programs close over the school break. We have no playgroup from next week because of school holidays. I bet by the time it returns Taylor will be sick again laugh.gif I'm glad our swim school doesn't shut, our previous one did.


Eliza, ouch! that fall would have killed! Glad her injuries weren't more serious.


I woke thinking I was losing my voice, but it seems to be better as the day progresses. Taylor woke at 6am this morning and wasn't happy. I swear she puts it on for me, but settles better for her Dad atm. So I brought her into our bed and put the tv on.
The ratbag is currently in her highchair banging the tray saying Mummy, cake please! she doesn't understand that we don't have any laugh.gif
Oh gawd now she is saying open present time! laugh.gif

Gorgeous Mish! and glad that you are feeling better today.

Oh Nicki, I forgot to mention Uni. I hope the next semester is over and done with before you know it. The best thing is that you won't have to go job hunting at the end of it! biggrin.gif

I keep having to clear my throat but it isn't hurting. So that is good.

Taylor is a monkey. She had a chiro appointment at 1.30pm, they bloody kept her waiting for 30 minutes and then she didn't see who they booked her in with grrrr. When she came home she was refusing to go to sleep, no Mummy no, over and over. Had to bribe her by putting her star sticker on her cot and giving her dinosaur and hoppy rabbit to sleep with wacko.gif

Amy, isn't that 1st trimester nausea just the pits! I hope it's over soon. Poor Miss T running into the kitchen drawer sad.gif They are so accident prone at this age aren't they! LOL at the cake and presents laugh.gif

Eliza, poor Ashlyn, that' s a huge tumble!

Nicki, they are hard to deal with, especially in public! I found reading Toddler Taming really good, it focuses more on us understanding how to deal with the behaviour rather than try and change it. That's awesome that you are starting your last semester! Woo hoo smile.gif

Mish, you poor thing, glad to hear that you are feeling better today, I hope Delaney doesn't get it too. That's so cute that Delaney is obsessed with your belly, Alex couldn't really care less about my bump but loves hanging out in Osmo's room (or Momo room!) and hanging off the side of the cot playing with the cot mobile.

I'm starting to freak out a little about having another little bub to look after, I think that feeling so sick doesn't help. I know that it'll all be fine but still feeling nervous about it. It looks like Scott will be changing things up at work soon so it might mean that he's not going to be as available as would make my life easier, he got a major promotion when Alex was just 3 weeks old so it's great timing again laugh.gif So massively jealous of those ladies whose hubbies are able to be home every night to do night time routines with bubs, I've gotten used to doing it all for Alex but think it's going to be interesting throwing a newborn into the mix! It's great to know that I've got you lovely ladies to come and vent to and get advice from!

Rosa, must be hard when hubby is never home for night time routine. I hope that changes.
I find it hard enough when I have to do it by myself for a week laugh.gif After a long day you just want to be able to take it easy. So I take full advantage when hubby is here laugh.gif


Taylor has improved GREATLY. Not much snot left to run out laugh.gif barely coughing. Always demanding medicine though. I told her she was addicted the other day and hubby didn't like that tongue.gif I guess it could be worse, she could totally fight it and make it a nightmare.
She woke hysterical again at 6am. I sooo don't want to make a habit of bringing her to our bed. But I brought her in and within a few minutes she settled down and was sweet as pie snuggling into me and talking. At 6.30am though I told her she had to go back to her bed while Mummy went to the toilet and I would get her up at 7am. Also told her she could have dinosaur and hoppy rabbit with her. To my surprise she went back to sleep and I got her up at 7.30am biggrin.gif
So I won't stress about teh wake up but will keep trying to do what I did today if it continues to happen. I do love the snuggles, but don't want regular 6am wakeups.

Amy, yep it does make it hard, especially when 37 weeks pregnant and with a disgruntled toddler blink.gif It makes it easier if I know when he's going to be home or not, the nights I hate are the ones when he rings up at 5.30pm and tells me he won't be home till late! Unfortunately it's got the potential to get a lot worse if a few things change with Scott's job. Time will tell what will happen though. Glad to hear that Miss T is much better! How lovely to get snuggles in bed, Alex just climbs all over us, even when he's sick!!!

Is it Friday yet??? Looking forward to this weekend, Scott's got a bit of work to do but hopefully not too much and will be able to let me rest heaps biggrin.gif

Rosa, maybe start utilising your mother more regularly, invite her over 2 or 3 nights a week to help out and she also gets to spend extra time with the kids. Even just until you learn the ropes with two.

Taylor normally climbs all over us in bed too. Yesterday morning she kept saying elbow elbow........(normally followed by tummy leg) as this is what they say when climbing out of the pool at swimming and saying it gives her away when she is being naughty and climbing at home. But we kept stopping her and told her it was stay in our bed or go to hers laugh.gif

Amy, I've already booked in Mum and Dad for daily visits for the first 6 weeks, they're off on an overseas trip for about 10 weeks after that but hopefully it will have settled down into a bit of a rhythm by then!

Alex gives himself away by saying 'oh no' really loudly! He's such a climber and I have to keep a pretty close eye on him to keep him out of trouble.

Alex is having something to eat and then he's going down for a sleep, so tempting to have a nap too but I don't sleep well at night if I have a day sleep so having a coffee instead smile.gif

sorry Rosa, silly me. I did read that you had them booked in.

Just don't forget to call on them anytime after their holiday on those days when it all gets too much.
I would be like you too, if you have advanced warning of Scott not being home on time, it's no where near as bad as if you find out at the last minute. I would go mental!

Aren't they so cute with giving themselves away! wub.gif

Mish and Amy - Hope you are both feeling better soon! Mish I hope Delaney stays well!

Rosa - You poor chook sad.gif I wouldn't be able to cope as well as you do! You do a great job with Alex and maybe a second bub won't make too much difference!

Mmmmm I am cooking smile.gif Yes that's right, she who has never cooked in her life has been cooking meals over the past 2 weeks! And tonight I made Emily vegie nuggets smile.gif Roll your eyes but it is a huge achievement for me! We are all good, no real news here!

no eye rolling here Nicki! well done! biggrin.gif

Thank you, I wish getting better was just around the corner, like tomorrow! I used my facial steamer tonight to inhale the steam through my nose, will gargle more salty water tonight.
Noticed Taylor's nose is now clear instead of yellow or green. So she is definitely making progress. I was going to put her to bed without the vapouriser tonight but thought nooo don't do it!

Crap tomorrow is Thursday. I will have to be super organised and get out of the house tomorrow arvo when hubby wakes. I want to drop into PP to see if they have pink/green striped tights to go with one of Taylor's gifts that she got and I have to pick up laybys so that my niece has a birthday present on the weekend.

Rosa, I'm sorry you're having a rough trot. It's hard work being heavily pregnant with a toddler, especially with DH working such long hours. I hope you get some rest soon.

Yay for clear snot Taylor! Hope you're felling better soon Amy, Brauers do a Cold & Flu remedy that I swore by when pregnant with Lew.

Nicki congrats on the cooking and almost finishing uni!!!

I've enrolled Jack in a trial of "Mummy and Me" ballet classes. He LOVES to dance and is starting to copy the dance moves on all his dvds so I thought it was about time we got him enrolled in something. We get to do 3 trial lessons, hope he likes it!

ETA: we're going to be in Brisbane from the 28th-1st September, planning on taking the boys to Dreamworld to see Wiggly World, is it worth it?

Megs, if you do all the kiddy things at Dreamworld it will be worth the visit I think.
Check out their website.
There are alot of rides. None that they would be able to go on by themselves, but you can go on with them.

Others swear by Seaworld (Bridget). I haven't been to Seaworld since I was in primary school!

you could even get the two park pass and go to White Water World for a swim. I am pretty sure they heat the pools in winter.

We're only up for a few days, we figured we'd just sneak 1 day for the kids stuff and the rest will be catching up with family. Will check out websites though and see what else is on offer.

Don't mind me... I'm just having a woe is me moment wink.gif It's hard to feel really positive when I'm feeling so blah, I'm just lucky that Alex is such a gem, even Scott commented last night that he's a happy little boy, so content wub.gif I'm dropping Alex at my parents in a few hours (they are dropping him back tomorrow afternoon!) and then we have a scan and OB appt today, will see what she says about my cough and having a c-sec in less than 2 weeks, just quietly I'm starting to freak out a little! Couldn't sleep last night because I was awake thinking and coughing. Am sleeping on a billion pillows and Scott keeps cracking jokes about me getting altitude sickness laugh.gif

Nicki, good work on the cooking! I haven't had much energy lately for making Alex lovely homecooked meals but he's been asking for baked beans pretty much every meal so he's happy that he is getting them once a day blush.gif Can you share your recipe for the vegie nuggets please, sounds yum!

Amy, how are you feeling this morning? My whatever it is is getting worse not better which is so frustrating! I just can't wait to start feeling human again! Glad to hear that Taylor is on the mend though, that's one thing at least! Pink/green tights sound super cute, hope you find some!

Megs, you so have to post a pic of Jack's first dance class, sounds absolutely gorgeous, I hope he loves it! I haven't been to Dreamworld with Alex yet but it's on the list of things to do this summer.
