I find it really hard to mop my floors now that Jack normally dosn't have a nap during the day because the tiles are really slippery and Jack always ends up having a buster but I just couldn't leave it any longer so today I spent about 2 hours wrestling with Jack over the vaccumm and mop so I could do them, he even slipped over on the wet tiles just to make me feel even more upset and then what happens, 20 minutes later he falls asleep watching beebahs. Arrrrgggghhhh!!!
1. Have another baby.
2. Get a nice outdoor entertainment area or win the lotto so I can build my dream home

There was an impromtu scrap n chat at EB last night which was great. Fiona set some fantastic challenges. So I did 3 LO's between last night and today and I have another 2 to show as well.
Oh and if anyone needs a good nappy rash cream I'd highly recomment Daktozin

So then Saturday night we went over to Simon & Kerryn's which was really nice and relaxing. Sitting around chatting and eating nibbles. Their pool area has been finished, hence the party, and it looks fantastic. They got a rectangular pool put in with decking all around it and a thatched roof hut. It looks gorgeous.
And then this morning, after a sleep in and a HUGE rush around we went to Jack's little friend, Oliver's 2nd Birthday party. That was great fun. Jack is so funny to watch. He is just so independant. He was off dancing all by himself and I don't know, it's hard to explain, he just seems so confident and seems like he owns his space. He's getting a bit bossy though and man can he throw a tantie. Anyway, now we're having a relaxing afternoon. I'm surfing the net and Jack's watching the Wiggles.
Oh and for any Survivor fans out there. You wait until you see epidsode 10 of the next series. The turn of events at tribal council and the faces of the contestants is very cool. Some people just get too cocky don't they in that game? And speaking of reality TV, Big Brother starts tonight, WOOHOO!!, I'm excited

It has so many bits and pieces and there's still room to fit all the playdough junk we already have in it as well. I was stoked. And to top it all of K-Mart had a further 50% off their easter eggs which were already half price. And I could have gotten a free Gotcha photo but we were pressed for time. I'm so peeved, I love their photos. Maybe I'll go back tomorrow or Saturday.
Owen was off today and is off tomorrow as well so I'm going to check the calendar and am hoping we'll be able to take Jack to the library tomorrow for the story reading. It's so great that they have that, the kids have such a fab time. They have a craft activity at the end as well but normally Jack has ants in his pants by then but we havn't been in a while so we might give it a go.
We also did drive by's off the public schools this afternoon to check out the grounds. Having never had a child before I'm not sure how it works with public school. Do you get to choose which school you want or is it allocated? Some friends of ours have a three year old and when they went to book him in to school they could only get a placement at one school so I guess it's something I'd better look into. Not that I'm wanting to push my baby to school early though, I was nearly crying in the car but I want him to go to a nice school, somewhere shady with cool play equipment.
Anyhoo, that's it for my boring life at the moment. Jack had a late nap this afternoon and is now refusing to sleep and Owen and I are half way through a movie. SIGH!! Oh well, he's got to fall asleep sometime...dosn't he?? At the moment he keeps slapping me out of the blue and wanting kisses.

Let me start out by saying that I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO very greatful that we have our precious Jack and that he is enough. Without making him sound like a possession or something that is owed to me I am so grateful that he is our son and that we conceived him after all that time and let me say that I am a bit of a lazy TTC'r. I'll chart for awhile or whatever but I do lose patience pretty quickly but in my defence I have had a lot of dissapointment in that department. I also know that there are a great number of people out there that have the same problem or that never get to experience parenthood and I truly feel awful for them and hope and wish that every woman out there that aches and yearns to hold their own precious child in their arms does get that wish.
Anyhoo, back to me :P The only contraception that we have used since Jack's birth is the screaming baby method and I know that these things don't just happen but you know, I just thought that this time around I would catch a break. I was sure that I would be pregnant quickly and easily but it seems that it's just not to be. I just don't know what to do. I'm 34 this year so my healthy baby production years are getting mighty short and I would LOVE to have another child (I think, I do remember sleepless nights and how bad they feel) and I know Owen would like to have another child too but I don't want the shit that goes with it. The waiting, the sex on comand (although it's always good ((just in case Owen reads this:P))tee hee), the waiting, the testing, the dissapointment, the saddness, the longing, the tears, the stress, the arguments it causes. I just truly do not think I could handle the same crap again. So that's my bitch for the week.
Anyone got any magic fertility spells???

These are some of the decorations and the board for pin the banana on the monkey game.
Jack playing the banana toss game. Owen painted the monkey.
Jack opening some gifts. He got some great things. A heap of Thomas the tank engine figures, a cool wiggles accordian, a jigsaw, some books, a tool kit, a personalised water bottle and heaps more. He was very excited.
Jack with his blower whistle. He thought these were just great.
The cheeky monkey cake. I think we should have practices blowing out candles though. Luckily the wind blew them out for us because when Jack went to blow he put hip lips around the wick. Ouch.
The ride home...he didn't even stay awake long enough to get to the bridge. We had to stop and wait for a train to cross and even with his love of trains he could only keep his eyes open for a second to see it.
Jack had such a great time. Joe, Rasharna and Justin followed him half way around the gardens while he chased birds for the first 20 minutes and then he had a great time playing on the slippery slide and swings. It was so nice to have so many friends and family around to help us to celebrate our special little boys day.
The first thing on Jack's Christmas wish list was a DNA test. Not that kind of test. He knows we're his parents but a hereditary D...
