Anyway there is a point, I love that quote...and my parents were due to fly out of Auckland today to be here in time for the kid's party tomorrow. It would have been the first ever party they have made it too.
But dad has done himself an injury. He thought he'd still make it though. :-) They flew up to Auckland, determined to catch the flight to Gold Coast, but he had to get off the plane in a wheel chair.
At the moment they are waiting for their bags then they are off to the hospital. No way they will make the flight today, and will miss the party and it's going to be at least a couple of days before they can get here now.
I'm a bit down about it, Blake is a bit upset. He told me he had hurt his leg too and couldn't go to his party either.
Oh well, life happens doesnt it? Least they will (fingers crossed) be here for Blake's acutal birthday on the 6th of June.
I was completley Kid Free today for about 6 hours! Crock (BIL) and his partner Bridget took the kids to Sea World today. I was a bit worried how Boo would go, she has either been with J or me pretty much her entire life, and the longest I have been away from her is about 5 hours.
Anyway, true to form, neither of my kids missed me and they both had a ball. Blake wore them out of course. He had a great time, he loves sea world (might need to get season passes). They weren't hangin out to see me when they got home
We had a melt down at bed time, but he'd had a big day.
So thanks for that guys. Its very rare I get any time that is totally kid free. I slept for a couple of hours. Much needed sleep as Boo has been teething, and Blake has been getting up early. Didn't really do anythign else productive, the book work will wait!

It's been wonderful having her here, she loves the kids, and they love her back. Its a pity she lives so far away!!! WA is so so so far away. She leaves this afternoon, and the visit is over in the blink of an eye.
Will miss you honey.
Blake listening to stories on the phone with Nani and Koro
Well I can't believe it. Boo is one on Wednesday. Man did that come about way too fast.
She is walking properly now, still crawls, and does tend to get the speed wobbles a bit when walking. She is mighty quick when crawling, especially if someone is in the shower. James wasn't paying attention last night and she got into the shower fully clothed! She thought it was great. (Of course she was aided by her big brother who opened the shower door for her.)
Blake had a speech assesment this week! YAY! Well not so yay, he has serious sequencing issues, but at least we know and we can get started. We are lucky we got to the top of the list for free speech though QLD health. It's going to be a long road, but hopefully we can sort it before he gets to school
The kids are sharing a room now, but it's often easier to put them to sleep in seperate rooms. This is Blake asleep on our floor!!

Blake made a 'bed' in his sand pit. Yes he is still wearing 1/2 his PJs!!
And below...one for the 21st. I put a dress on Boo and Blake said "I want wear dress like Boo". SO off we went to Boo's cupboard and found one that fitted him! His dad wasn't impressed, although he did say it suited him
And we had a lovely little get together today with Nadine and Noelle from a forum I'm on, Noelle's friend Kat and J's cousin Amy. Jimmy (Noelle's son) Tyler (Kat's son) and Ella are all about the same age and had a great time playing together. The pic is on my camera,so will get it off one day. Thanks for visiting guys I had a wonderful time/.

This is my first one, I am quite pleased with it, although made a few stuff ups along the way. It's huge though! Plan on making another one (different type) today if I get a chance.
