Happy birthday to me!

Posted May 30th, 2008 by candi

It certainly turned out to be an eventful birthday, one that I won’t forget in a hurry. I had planned to spend the day at home because Dexter was just getting over being sick and it needs to be 24 hours from last diahorrea before he can go to FDC. Since he was going to [...]

I have a few recipes to share while I think of them.   One is an Asian Chicken Meatloaf. We can get nice minced breast meat for $5.99 for 5-600gm so this is a good way to use it. In a big bowl put two grated carrots, one grated zucchini, the chicken mince and one [...]

Oh no, it’s gastro!

Posted May 27th, 2008 by candi

I am at home today with two sick babies. Willow fell ill on Thursday with a bad cough and high temperature, so A picked her up and took her home and stayed at home with both of them on Friday (he has plenty of leave, if I take a day off, I don’t get paid) [...]

Willow the threenager

Posted May 22nd, 2008 by candi

I heard about the concept of the threenager the other day and I thought it fit Willow quite well.  She is so defiant for us at the moment, but with other people she is an angel.  Her FDCarer described her as one of the most easy going children she’s had and we always get good [...]

I was laying Dexter on my lap this afternoon and saw a sliver of white embedded in his gum.  More specifically, his top left hand front tooth.  Looks like all the fussing was for a reason.  Now I feel bad for not giving him paracetamol last night.

Random stuff…

Posted May 20th, 2008 by candi

Some photos of Dexter. We have toothie pegs! The bottom two teeth are coming through quite nicely and judging by the whinging and red cheeks, there are some more to come very soon. He is not quite crawling yet, but he certainly can get around. He gets up into the downward dog pose, on hands [...]

Clean, cleaner, cleanest!

Posted May 20th, 2008 by candi

My house is not. Clean, that is. I could say that working 4 days a week, two children and going to uni two nights a week have taken a toll on the state the house is in, but honestly it’s a mess at the best of times. So, we are getting a cleaner. A has [...]

So tired…

Posted May 20th, 2008 by candi

For the past two nights, Dexter has woken every 30 minutes to hour and a half. This morning at 7am, when it was time to get up, I worked out what the problem was. His new sleeping bag! I don’t get it, He slept fine from 8pm to 11pm when we came to bed, but [...]

The group leader at Willow’s childcare (she goes once a week on Wednesdays) spoke to me this morning about Willow moving up to the next room. She’s my baby! She can’t be that old yet, that’s like her almost being ready for kindy! Apparently she is more than ready for the challenge. Last week she [...]
