How dooooooo they do it?

How do women work from home with two toddlers without going completely skitzoid?

There are NO women that work from home with two toddlers that don't eventually go skitzoid!

I've come to the conclusion that if there were an Olympic Games held just for toddlers, with events such as:
  • Tantrum throwing
  • The 8 hour whinging marathon
  • Triathalon of non-cooperation (running away, riding away and demanding to get into the pool when it's freezing and I'm trying to fix the freakin creepy crawly)
my toddlers today would have for sure taken gold in the 8 hour whinging marathon (and probably bronze in the Triathalon of non-cooperation)... 

So to recover from celebrate their victorious feats today, I've cracked open a bottle of cab merlot or whatever it is... either way it's doing job!

Here's some great blogs I've stumbled across lately...

T G I G A B F G O V R - No it's not Russian !

TGIF ... and... TGIGABFGOVR (thank god I've got a big fat glass of vin rouge)!

After a tireless week of relentless whinging, runny noses and projectile vomiting, the big bright light at the end of my relative tunnel is in full view and blinding me in all its glory!

Translation: my husband and I are heading off (sans children) to Melbourne next week for life in style and to top it all off, we're staying at the Crown Casino!!!!! (I can feel a celebratory running man dance coming on)!

Our little monsters frenchies will be in the very tolerant and able hands of Grandpa Fry and Aunty Hayley (thanks guys, I owe you one!)

Amongst consuming copious amounts of alcohol, coffee and food other things, I'm really looking forward to meeting the lovely and talented ladies, Keren from the brown trading co and Carla from habitat baby!

Sick Kids & a Stiff Drink !

Well surprise surprise... another day another virus! If I could count the amount of times I've been vomited on, I'd be wealthy enough to walk into Louis Vuitton and... well... enough said...

So, the stiff drink is self medicating to take the edge off a day full of antibiotics, baby panadol, baby nurofen and a hell-uv-alot of whinging...

Cheers to that x

Saintly sister, Sleeping Kids & Some great Blogs !

Oh how I love thy sister... Not only is she a spectacularly amazing and talented person, she has clearly taken pitty on me and my chaotic life and has decided to spring clean our house this weekend! So I've given her the new and much deserved title of "saint" and I will direct Jack, my toddler to address her from now on as "Aunt Saint Hayley" (Charlie doesn't speak yet really so he's excused for now).

So whilst my sister is downstairs rearranging my kitchen (I'm assuming that's what the cluttering is all about ), I'm hiding sitting next to Jack blogging whilst he and Charlie are having their marathon midday nanny naps. I am a lucky woman when I say that both my little Frenchies have quite substantial day-time naps! For those of you that have little ones that don't and if it makes you feel any better, it wasn't always like this (Oh no it wasn't!!!). I'm exceptionally grateful for this peaceful pause in my day and will devastated a little sad when it ends (and Oh it will!!!). One thing motherhood has taught me is NEVER get too comfortable...

Here are some great blogs for you to go check out... x
