Happy birthday to me!

Posted May 30th, 2010 by candi

8 years ago today, my world had changed forever. 7 years ago today, I was sitting at a cafe in New York City. Today I have to take Willow to a birthday party – my life has changed a bit! We made this card to give to her. It was a princess party and she [...]

The end of our breastfeeding journey.

Posted May 28th, 2010 by candi

So, this afternoon I saw the doctor again. He gave me a referral to the best hepatobiliary surgeon in Adelaide for the gallstone operation. I asked him whether it was worth going private or waiting on the public list. He laughed and said that the $500 excess would be money well spent. Unfortunately, he said [...]

Not the sharpest tool in the shed!

Posted May 26th, 2010 by admin

It’s taken me nearly a semester to work out that it’s easier to drop Dexie off at FDC, leave my car at school, then catch a bus into the city for uni. Saves driving in the city traffic and paying for parking. Today is Sorry Day, so in the last half of the Tutorial, we [...]

“Your didi?”

Posted May 25th, 2010 by admin

Some back story to set the scene – didi is the colloquial Mandarin word for penis. As usual, this morning I was having a shower with Dexie. He was doing what little boys do when they don’t have their nappy on, when he looked at me and asked “Your didi?” Presumably he wondered where my [...]

Not quite what I was expecting!

Posted May 24th, 2010 by admin

I finally rang up to book myself in for an ultrasound today, luckily I got an appointment at lunchtime, so I left my office, intending to see a client straight after, and go home from there. I’d been instructed to drink a litre of water, so I was rather uncomfortable by the time I laid [...]

Current Mood: CoolFor a combined birthday/Mother’s day present, I bought myself an iTouch a couple of weeks ago. I’ve had a lot of fun playing with it, and I’m actually writing this post on it. Mind you, I had to ask A to install the latest version of WordPress to be able to do it! [...]

Fun on the farm!

Posted May 23rd, 2010 by candi

One of my lovely friends (not to imply that I have non-lovely friends!) invited us to her grandfather’s farm. We were there to pick olives, it was a satisfying process to strip the trees of their pretty fruit. Dexie thought that he’d try a bite, but they don’t taste very nice just off the tree! [...]

My day

Posted May 21st, 2010 by candi

This morning Willow, Dexie and I had a shower all together. I think Willow wanted one by herself, but I didn’t want to run late, so once I got in, Dexie got in too. They are taking up a lot of space in the shower these days, and it’s too cold to spend long out [...]

Bag Tag

Posted May 21st, 2010 by candi

I decided that Dexie needed something else on his bag. For someone who was against commercialisation of children’s things, I’m not doing so well – he’s got a Thomas the Tank Engine bag, a Maisy bag tag and now a Hungry Caterpillar bag tag. Plus his new TTTE sneakers. The front. The back. It’s pretty [...]

What kind of mother am I?

Posted May 20th, 2010 by candi

This morning I had to drop both Dexie and Willow off, as A didn’t go to work*. I realised that I’ve never dropped both the kids off by myself! Dexie’s FDC is closer, so I dropped Willow off second. As I was taking her in to her class room, I realised that I had no [...]
