The Best $15 I've Ever Spent...

We went to the supermarket this afternoon and Noah found this Ninja Turtle dvd. And yes, I'm soft I know - I gave in and bought it for him. I have no idea how long it goes for but I put it on for him at 3pm and it's nearly 5pm now, and he's still in there watching it!! And before you ask, no he's not asleep because I poked my head round the corner and checked. Amazing...

Pitty I hadn't used the Noah-free time more wisely though. All I've accomplished this afternoon is watching a repeat of All Saints (the ones with Jarod in them, yumm-o!) and I've got tea in the oven cooking.
Where am I going to get the motivation to fill the empty boxes sitting in my entry way? The plasterer is coming on Wednesday and I have to pack up the entire house and squish it all into our bedroom by then...I have no hope!!

New Picci's

Haven't really taken a lot of picci's the last few days, slack slack slack! We went to Tania and Andrew's engagement party lst ngiht, it was heaps of fun! I had a great time and so did Noah. He spent all night playing with Connor and Montanna. He even had Tania wandering around the house looking for "the blue and white super-hero badge", which actually didn't exist...Kept her entertained for half an hour though!

Poor Kaiden has a cold. And I think I'm getting one too. Woke up this morning with a really sore throat, not good at all. At least it's an excuse to lay down and cuddle him I guess :-)

Time For A Change!!

Decided today I was sick of the old blog so I thought I'd have a play around with it - and here's what I came up with! Don't know how long it will last but it will do for now...Enjoy!!

Poor Kaiden...

Kaiden had his needles yesterday. And he was so brave :-) Our appointment with the nurse was at 11.15am and we were right on time - pitty they weren't. 12.45pm we got in. We sat there for an hour and a half! I know we've had these conversations before Dani, but seriously that is ridiculous isn't it?? I was ready to get up and walk out. They didn't even come and say there was a wait or they were running behind or anything. So I watched The Bold And The Beautiful and half of the crappy mid-day movie, luckily Kaiden went to sleep because he was starting to get tired and cranky. I was just cranky.

Anyway, we finally got in to see the nurse and she jabbed Kaiden while he was asleep - it sure woke the poor little fella up! He cried but as soon as she was finished he calmed down and slept all afternoon. Last night though it was like his leg kept hurting cos one minute he was laughing and the next he was crying. Poor little man, I felt so sorry for him. Needles are not fun at all. But good news - he slept all night and he's back to happy Kaiden this morning :-)

It's Jolly Jumping Time!!

Kaiden is big enough now for the jolly jumper! He's only been in it twice so far, but he loved it! He hasn't really grasped the whole bouncing up and down idea yet, but he just hangs there and he can spin himself around to look at things so he's happy with that for now.
I think Noah got more enertainment out of than Kaiden did! He loved bouncing him up and down. He pretended Kaiden was a puppet and sang the "Dingle-Dangle-Scarecrow" song, making Kaiden "shake his hands like this and shake his legs like that". It was so funny! But ever since that, Kaiden has been babbling in this really deep, raspy sounding voice because that's how Noah sings it! It's too cute :-)

Do You Think The Boys Had A Big Day Yesterday??


Yesterday we went to Lonnie in search of jeans because I was DESPERATE for new jeans. And after walking around for about three hours lookinhg in every possible shop I finally found some in Sport and Surf...And look at the tag - size 7! Hooray hooray hooray!! It totally made my day :-)

Some Picci's From Today

We finally made it out of the house today! We went to the school for a play and Noey did a few long jumps...he also ran nearly the entire way around the 400m track and only stopped when he tripped over! It was amazing, I couldn't even run that far these days I don't reckon.

Then we went for a wander around the park and saw a platypus in the water! Took heaps of photo's (surprise surprise!) might make a slide out of them if I get the chance. But here's a few of my favourites :-)


Kids are expensive. Nappies. Formula. Clothes. Toys. Books. It's never ending! So any saving you can make on anything is fantastic. Kaiden's formula is my latest break-through...

Deloraine Pharmacy - $19.50

Deloraine Supermarket - $18.99

Chemist Warehouse - $17.99 (Supposedly the "cheapest prices anywhere")

Kings Meadows Pharmacy - $15.50

So needless to say - Kings Meadows is my new favourite place :-)

House Update!!

Poor Noah

Here's Noah's poor face from his crash down the stairs...

Mindless Babble...

I think we're taking the whole "Lazy Sunday" to a new level...It's heading towards 12pm and not only are the boys and I still in our pj's, but Kaiden and Noah are both back in bed. I can't get motivated to do anything...I taped the end of a movie last night so I sat down for an hour to watch that. Then realised I hadn't even brushed my hair. So my hair is now brushed.

There are a million things to do today - doing dishes, doing bottles, vacuuming, at least two loads of washing, changing everyone's bed sheets. And, besides the bottles which really have to be done or Kaiden will have no lunch, I can pretty much guarantee that NONE of them will get done. What is wrong with me?!

I'm blaming Chantelle. Ever since she came home and MADE me get drunk last weekend, I've been like a space-cadet...Can a hang over last an entire week??

Noah fell down the stairs yesterday afternoon. And I feel terrible because, for starters I didn't see it. I was inside and all I heard was him yell out. And secondly, I thought he was over-reacting a little bit. He was beyond tired and had been accident-prone all day, so I gave him a cuddle and checked him out, he had no scratched or bumps so that was the end of that I thought. But then bed time came around last night and I started washing off all the red face paint...half of it wasn't face paint it was blood! Oh my god, I'm the worst mother in the world... He had a big scrape on the side of his face, a lump on his forehead, scratches all over his cheeks and he's taken the skin off all around his poor little nose. So he must have really crashed, the poor little fella. Next time I promise I will take him more seriously...

Funny Noah quote of the week -
We were driving up to get pizza for tea last night (yes,I was too lazy to cook anything!) and Noah was babbling away in the back. I have no idea who or what he was talking about but he came out with this line "he's a butt-cheek bandet" Where does he come up with these things??

On Tuesday, Erin said they did show-and-tell at Toddle Inn. I didn't know they did it so I didn't send Noah along with anything. But apparently that didn't stop him - he got up in front of everyone and told them a Spiderman story! He's truly obsessed...

Kaiden has to have his needles on Thursday - ouch! Not looking forward to that at all. For him or me. Ouch ouch ouch. Maybe they have something special they can jab me with to give me my energy back.

My tummy is growling, think its lunch time. Wonder if I should get dressed first...


Rightio - lunch is done, yummy re-heated pizza from last night! And I'm dressed. Hallelujah! At least now if somebody turns up on my doorstep I won't look like I've been out all night...

I took some picci's of the house. The slab is down for the shed, the back deck is finished. We are just waiting now for the guy to come and render the bottom of the house, the guy to come and put the cladding on and the guy to come and finish off the plaster inside. Notice how many GUYS we are waiting on?

And how exciting - Princess Mary had a baby girl! Why is it that everyone gets girls except for me? I'm beginning to know how Posh Spice feels. Maybe we could leave our house wrapped in blue plastic forever and use the $$ to adopt a girl...

My plan for this afternoon was to take Noah down to the athletics oval and teach him how to Long Jump...He can start going to Little Athletics next year. Hope he likes it! Mum and I looked up the Little Ath's State Records on the internet the other day and my Long Jump record is still there. I was so happy, I thought someone would have broken it for sure. It wil be 10 years old next year. How old am I feeling right now!!

It looks like it's going to entertainment for this afternoon could be another movie. I have Brokeback Mountain here to watch, everyone says how good it is. I must be the only one who hasn't seen it!

Think that's enough babble for now....

Brothers :-)

Our Day At The Races!!

Today the boys and I went to watch Lucy race at Carrick...Let's just say it wasn't very successful!! But they had free face painting there, that was a hit for Noah! He decided to be Spiderman (surprise surprise!). Doesn't he look cute :-)

That's Lucy with the green driver, Number 6...she's up the front cos that's where her barrier draw was. She didn't stay there long :-(

Movie Night!

On Wednesday the boys went to the movies - well, the big boys anyway! Kaiden and I went out for tea in Devonport with the girls so Craig decided to take Noah to the movies. Noah called Uncle Trav and he went too, and then Tim and Beau decided to join them! Apparently the movie was really good, Noah just loved it! Kinda glad I got out of going tho... :-)

Tummy Time


Kaiden is lovin' the walker!!

We were watching Tim and Spitta drag the disgusting dead mouse out of the back of the fridge and this is how Kaiden fell asleep - I told you, he will go to sleep ANYWHERE!!!
