my fairy princess

Yes you read it right we have a fairy princess. My rough and tumble 100% pure holy terror has transformed into a fairy princess. see… IMG_1556IMG_1558IMG_1560

sweet as can be and soft and gentle and loving. gorgeous cooperative smiles and …..


he runs screaming through the house “FIND A SAFE PLACE!! FIND A SAFE PLACE – MUM HAS THE CAMERA!! FIND A SAFE PLACE!!”


two seconds later he strolls calmly into the lounge room, strips of the pink, turns and says “phew, that’s enough of being a princess, I’m your Tyler again”


oh I love that boy!

Mum does things backwards


Whoda thunkit?


yup this size one brand new pair of tie me up joggers have been a bit of a cause of frustration in our house hold lately. All Caden wanted was some tie up joggers to go to school in this term. So we went and picked them out during some mummy and me time. All good we were both happy with them.


No problems they fit well however….


when it comes to learning to tie them up is a completely different matter. Caden and I sat there on at least 3 different occasions trying to teach and learn how to tie them up. More and more increasing frustration ensued until I sat back and watched how he did it.


It became very clear that I am a left handed shoe tier upperer. that means that I do it backwards.


Step in daddy who is strongly right handed no worries he has started picking it easily.

So Caden now happily tells people I am backwards.




love you little man despite the way you think  :)

Mama and Me time

is a rare thing for my Caden and I. Ty gets a lot since C is in school but Caden misses out on a lot. Daddy took Tyler grocery shopping today and Caden and I took a little stroll around the corner to the park/open area around the corner. Photo time! and climbing trees and running and throwing the change colour ball and laughing and just being together! IT was really nice. We strolled back, shot some flowers, laughed and joked, played with the K’nex of which my robot clearly was no match for the mastery of Cadens!IMG_1448IMG_1452IMG_1453IMG_1485 oh and the things you have to get through to see those gorgeous blue eyes!

looking good!

While the last few weeks have been really really rough with Daz being sooooo sick. There is nothing like a dose of chicken pox as an adult that turns into CP pneumonia and is life threatening to make you really appreciate how precious life is. The boys had it, They had it for 5 days and honestly they were hardly sick or soptty really. Now Daz, well consider head to toe spots and sick sick sick. We did a dash to the ER at 5pm on a Thursday night. He was feeling worse and we knew it wasn’t just normal CP. Thank goodness we did. 4 nights in hospital, 4 weeks off work – 3.5 of them on the couch or in bed, losing 12 kg in that time (well the first fortnight) very good doctors that picked up how sick he was early and the fact that we listened to our gut means that we caught it in time. After a recent appointment with a respiratory specialist he told us how lucky we were as in some cases it can be fatal. Daz still has a way to go before he is back to 100% But I gotta tell you that he has come out of fabulously and spunky! and skinny! lol!




love you



when all is quiet…


this is what we find!
