It’s your responsibility mama…

Baby unfortunately you get a lot of sinus infections. My normally patient and level headed little bloke disappears for a few days and leaves behind a little boy who need’s mama ‘right now!!!!’ I feel absolutely terrible watching you in pain as you wake up with swollen eyes and head aches and you just can’t get any relief! I close the curtains and try and be patient with you, especially when things don’t go your way… Just tonight as I was getting you  boys ready for bed, I asked you to put your t-shirt on. You refused and since I was trying to be patient, I instead decided to ask you ‘why do I have to get angry at you for you to do something…?’ Your reply was ‘it’s your responsibility mama….’  xx

Our Mo Mo’s back!!! Kardie you were a little unsure at first… but it didn’t take long for the shy little looks from under those sweet lashes to turn to big smiles as you remembered your Mo Mo. (a month’s a long time in your little life) Dacka you did the double take as she walked in the door and then big smiles and cuddles. It was then ‘Mo Mo? Where’s Mo Mo gone? any time she left your sight… x

Dacka learns to ride…

DACKS!!! Today you jumped on your bike and rode and rode and rode! We’ve been practicing for a while now with varying success. But today I was so proud of you as you pedaled and steered all the way to the reserve and back. I had the biggest smile on my face as I watched my little baby become a big clever boy. I adore spending time with you and want to help you believe that you can do absolutely anything you dream. x

Things my Dacka says…

Things my Dacka says…

A conversation that took place in the bath one night.

Jack – ‘Kade’s got a girly voice’

Mum – ‘Why?’

Jack – ‘Because he squeals all the time’

He then went on to explain… ‘Girls say ‘ I want to go to the hairdresser…’ (Said in a highpitched “girly” voice) and ‘Boy’s say ‘ I want to be a pirate…’ (Said in a deep “boy” voice)

Mum – said nothing… was too busy hysterically laughing!

One morning I was getting dressed after a shower and heard Jack having a conversation with someone…. I snuck down the passage so I didn’t disturb and found him “chatting” on his “phone”  (a real mobile with the battery taken out).  I heard his one sided conversation to his dad ‘How you been mate? I’m just doing some tidying. Yep, we’re going to Gav’s to be adjusted (our chiro). See you later Mate. He then ran around the house yelling ‘mum, mum. Dad want’s to talk to you…’

Other little tidbits…

‘Please don’t disturb me, I’m fixing the remote’

When I was getting up him for not eating his dinner… ‘I’m going to get a pich pich (gun noise) and gun you’…. hmmmm….

Kardi I always know when you’re tired because you turn in to ‘the plonker’. You roll around and plonk your self on every pillow and every person you can find. When you roll on top of Dacka he absolutely squeals with delight and can not stop  laughing. I give up with it being wind down time and pretty much read your bedtime story to myself as you two are in your own “brother” world which i just can’t interfere with… xx
