Happy 2nd Birthday Cammy

Today is my baby boy's 2nd birthday... and what a glorious day it was weather wise... we started the day by giving him his new train set, he loved it!!!
Then it was off to Plunket for our 2year check - all is well, and Cammy is progressing nicely :)  What more can a mother ask for?

After that, it was off to daycare, where all his little friends {and teachers} were waiting for him to arrive so they could start the party - I made cupcakes for his daycare cake:
I left the camera at Daycare so they could take some photos of his day... these are 2 of my favs:
After a busy day at daycare it was off to Nana's for a lovely family dinner of Chinese takeaways...
and cake

Daylight Savings has Arrived

Which to me spells the start of summer, bbq's, kids playing outside for hours, fun at the beach, my caravan and a whole lot more...

And yesterday, we just happened to put a new BBQ on layby - I'm so excited... it's not for use at home though - it's for the caravan, but thats ok - it's everything I need up there for when Ian is back at work, and I'm alone with the kids trying to watch them AND cook their dinner... it's a 4 burner hooded BBQ with a side element :)

I only hope the weather starts to get a bit better... so far so good today :)

yummy pineapple



I just can't get enough pineapple at the moment... it's all I think about from the moment I wake in the morning till the moment I go to sleep at night... and I'm pretty sure, if I could just remember my dreams, that I may be thinking about it in my sleep also... 

I eat half a pineapple in one sitting I love it soooo much...

I'm becoming a nana

Just lately I've found myself having to be in bed my 9.45pm at the latest as I am sooooo tired... and it doesn't seem to matter how much sleep I get, I'm still tired...

I think that I am getting old lol or it could just be that this baby likes it's sleep {which would be a first for one of my kids}

I used to be up most nights till 11pm ish.

At my house...

The rain has finally left town for the day... and it happens to coincide with a day that I'm home from work...

It's such a great feeling to get the nappies out on the line for the first time in what seems like forever!!



I have also today set up the new entertainment unit, washed a load of towels, and two loads of clothes. 

Cam has a highly contagious viral infection - with a rash quite similar to chicken pox, but it's not the pox according to the doctor *sigh* roll on summer, I'm over the bugs

I am thankful...

I am thankful:

  • that the hockey and soccer season has drawn to a close today
  • for my wonderful sister, who picks me up when I am down
  • that while my kids get sick every now and again - at least they are well children
  • for summer being just around the corner {I'm really not sure how much of this rain I can take}
What are you thankful for?

2 days of my life I will NEVER get back...

*sigh*

I stupidly let my First Aid Certificate lapse 5 years ago...

So today and yesterday, were spent on a 2 day Work Place First Aid Course... Well I have NEVER been so bored in my whole life... Some of you may be thinking, that's rude of me, I should have been there to learn, but the thing is, I teach kids first aid week in and week out - I'm very up with the play on First Aid, and have never NOT known what to do... but legally - I needed the certificate to say that I was current in my First Aid...

I do recommend that at least one person in every household does a first aid course - I mean, it could save the life of a loved one...

But I do think - they could jazz up the course a bit, so you don't want to sleep the whole day

nap time


yesterday after we got home from Paris's hockey game, I popped Cammy on the couch with a book, to take his mind off his sore hand, and this is what happened within 2 minutes!!  He slept like this for an hour.

So exciting...

I'm so very excited... tomorrow I am off for my 12 week scan {at 12w 6d} and I can't wait to see my baby :)

On another note - Cammy is full of love for the new bubba... he kisses my puku every chance he gets, in the mornings when we are lying in bed he also says "bubba sleeping in there"

How cute is that???
