A little lost

I have just gotten home from watching Noah at his celebration of the Preps concert for his school....and needless to say I was one proud mumma he got up in front of the whole chapel and spoke, I was a little shocked that he actually got up and did it (it was a surprise for me, I had no clue he was going to do it), Noah can be very shy and quiet at times and when he did this...emotions just came over me and I couldn't hold back the tears, and anyone who knows me knows I don't do the crying thing ;o)
So as I'm watching all the preps, it hits me he is a grade 1 now and Bailey is in kinder next year!!
Where have all my babies gone?
What am I suppose to do once they all go off to school? which in reality it could be as soon as 2013!! The only thing I'm good at is being a mum... I really have no other skills, I love it that the boys depend on me for EVERYTHING, to me that's what being a mum is all about.
So I'm feeling a little lost...I have booked Jake into daycare for 1 day a week starting in January, but I'm thinking I may pull him out, so I don't miss out on a thing with him.
Where do I go from here?
If I could keep Jake home for ever I would, I don't want him to grow up....maybe I could home school??

But that's another blog all in its self!!!

So I'm left pondering my future, just as the boys lives seem to be starting, mine seems to be a little hazy...

Sport...Sport and more sport

I'm a strong believer that children should do some sort of sport to keep their mind and body fit...especially once they hit teenage years, I think if a child does some sort of sport they are less likely to get into trouble!
In saying this, can they do too much sport??
Damon who is 14 LOVES his sport, and he has something on every night, ranging from cricket, basketball, football and he goes to the gym also...I have asked him to pick his 2 favourite things because he needs to cut back a bit...but he wont, and how can I argue with hm, when his grades have made a HUGE improvement also?
I guess I'm being selfish in that I would like one night at home!
We also travel a LOT for all these things and recently went to Geelong for the weekend for basketball, we had a great time and I got to catch up with some dear friends who I hadn't seen for quite a while.

 Will and his best mate Ben...... it was so good to see that after not seeing each other for 9 months, they still got on like a house on fire!

So we have basketball again today! Its the under16 grand final so we will go and cheer D on....Im sure he will win ;o)

Some people

Well I get this all the time and I'm getting a little tired of it! I was shopping last night with 4 of the boys and a lady and man behind me in the check out started a conversation up with me, with the usual line "gosh you must be busy"
So it went on and on till the last question was "so are they all from the same father" WTF!!!! "Yes they are actually"
The man didn't believe me as his response was " Oh really??? Ok then" Oh god I'm so over this question yes they all have the same father, yes they all look totally different but there is nothing I can do about that!

I just wish I had the balls to say to people to mind their own bloody business...but I don't and I usually just say with a smile yes they are and laugh!!

Imagine if D had of been with us ;) hahahaha

OK vent over..........

Fun in the sun

Today was the perfect day...So a friend and I decided it was the perfect picnic weather! So that's exactly what we did...packed the kids up and went to the park for the morning and lunch!

Jake had a ball he is now big enough to climb on all the jungle gym equipment (much to my horror)

Bailey had a ball running around everywhere, climbing on anything that would stay still...his favourite thing in the entire world would have to be the swings!! He adores them.....Higher mummy!! Faster Mummy...his laugh justs warms my heart...there is nothing better in this world then hearing your child laughing.

It was such a relaxing day, the sun was shining, the boys were having a ball and I got to sit and relax and work on my tan ;)

I didnt do it!!

Trying to get a boy of any age to admit to doing something naughty...whether it be hitting a brother, taking a toy, or eating their mothers chocolate...The answer I get every single time is "I didn't do it"

And now Jake who is 2 has learnt that "I didn't do it" is the answer to everything no matter what the question!

So as I sit here and ponder the goings on in a child mind and what makes them do the silly things they do, I can hear Noah telling his nan...that he didn't take her glasses hahaha

A classic example of the "I didn't do it" syndrome would have to be Bailey telling me he didn't spill the blue food colouring all over the doesn't matter that his hands, face and body were covered in it..."he didn't do it"..

Never a dull moment

Kid free day

How I miss them...but today was one of those rare occasions where I got to sit down and eat my lunch without having someone crawl all over me...wanting to eat my food...or poking me in the face or pointing out how fat my belly is getting!!

So today was to put in one word Bliss!!!

On the down side to today my dear friend Karen told me she has applied for a visa to live in  London..
Makes me really sad, we have just reconnected after a few moves we lost contact,  and now I'm losing her again, well in a few months anyway.

She was there for the birth of Will and we worked together (well should say played together at work) for a few years also..

So now I'm back in reality the kids are screaming and is nagging me to have a hit of tennis...
It was nice and blissful for the 4 hours!

52 days

till Christmas!!! but who's counting  ME!!

I went shopping today to try and get some ideas for Santa presents, but I cant think of anything for the 3 younger boys?? What do you  get a boy who has everything?? and if he doesn't have it then his older brother does!

So I'm starting to panic...I ask the boys what they want and they tell me things their brothers already have so there is no point in doubling up on things, Jake tells me he wants a new purple dummy!! hmmmm ok your done hahaha

This would have to be the downside to having  a family all the same sex...if there was a girl thrown in the mix she would have been covered... dolls...dolls and more dolls!!!

So I have 52 days to come up with an idea!!

Merry Christmas all

He is growing up

So my baby is 3 in January where has that time gone?? It makes me want another baby but I know that will never happen so I will have to be content with my 5 devine boys!!

So I had Jake's hair cut the other day after having EVERYBODY say how beautiful she is!! and after my lovely mother nagging me to death...I caved in and got it cut...and I hate it he has lost his spunk if that makes sense and now looks like a 3 year old instead of my baby..

So today we have had nothing but screaming coming out of his can such a beautiful face make such a horrible noise I will never know..

And after I put him in the naughty corner he screamed at me " Good on ya mum" hahahaha he truely is the devil I'm sure of it..

I thought I would share some before and after pics of my baby


I know it doesn't look like a lot has been taken off but we took at least 2inches off!!
And at this stage that's all this mummy could may be another 3 years before we cut it again..who knows :P

Simple things

Its hard to believe that such simple things make the boys happy like a packet of balloons...Jake has had endless fun

Our beauiful dog Patton the boys adore him and spend endless time with him

We picked some flowers for nan today as a thank you for everything she does

So all up our day cost $2.50 not bad for entertaining 4 boys...

3am delights

So I woke this morning to the sound of little feet running through the kitchen at 3am!!
I go to investigate who and what it was.... only to find Noah and Bailey sitting up in the lounge room playing the PS3!!!

In my nicest grumpy voice I ask what they are doing??

Bailey's response " Chill mum we are playing the game"

How could I respond  to that without laughing!

This is why I have chosen this career....its never boring!!

Six years ago today

Who would have thought that my tiny little human who was in such a hurry to get here would be turning 6 today!!

So 6 years ago today I gave birth to Noah James on our kitchen floor with just the help of my very panicked mum and hubby who really thinks HE delivered Noah but hung for a minute I was the one on the cold floor screaming through every contraction  while he was up and down asking where the ambulance was hahaha

I can laugh now because its all a faint memory but at the time I was so scared I didn't think I could do it and what if something was wrong with the baby there was no one there to help!! but it all worked out after 38 minutes of labour our beautiful 7lb 11oz baby was born ..

I must share this little bit of the story tho after Noah was born and I was lying down trying to soak in what had just happened, Ted decided to get up and WALK AWAY WITH THE BABY STILL ATTACHED TO ME ! Um hello where do you think your going?? hahaha

We still laugh about it this day (well I do)

So as my big 6 old is fast asleep I will sneak in and give him a big kiss from his very proud but emotional mumma..

We love you Noah J xoxo
