We don't have a bath in our house but The Boogie loves a good bubble bath. When I need some Boogie free time I put our baby bath in the shower, add bubbles and get some time off!
Caution: don't leave young children unattended near water!

My three and a half year old had lifted him from his carrier and put him a few feet away on the couch.
He seems fine and alert. We didn't even know it had happened as he didn't cry or anything. It does make me worry though- about what could have happened and about any long term problems such as neck issues if The Boogie didn't support his head.
It also makes me wonder if The Boogie had hurt Little One seriously could I have forgiven him? I hope so!
Could you forgive one of your children if they seriously hurt one of their siblings?

To start the day Ash got The Boogie his cereal and crawled back into bed. Half an hour later no cereal had been eaten but it did have Nandos hot sauce in it! Yum!
We slowly got our act together this morning and went to the shops. I bought t-shirts to decorate for the kids Christmas presents (good special!), three packs of dye and some elastic bands.
After lunch we got on to pimping those boring white terry nappies we got off freecycle! We also did all the plain singlets too!
On the subject of nappies Almost Frugal is having an awesome giveaway which I would love to get my paws on! She is giving away her daughters outgrown TotsBots nappies and a wet bag from Babycat Goods. We could definely do with some more modern cloth (though our terries do look awesome!). We are yet to get a wet bag and are just using plastic bags at the moment so to win this would be awesome!
Lucas also did some chalk drawings- check out his Kookaburra

Like The Boogies self portrait? He told me what he was drawing with each feature which is a first for him. Normally he scribbles a bit and then demands that I draw something for him. I really hope that phase is over because it does my head in!
Meanwhile my little tomatoes are doing well- there are over 50 of them! We also planted some zucchini seeds and they shot up so we transferred them to small pots the other day while Ash and Little One slept inside. It was nice to have some one on one time with The Boogie- while also getting something done that I wanted to do!

Today we had a fairly relaxed day as Ash began his three week holidays- yay! Boogie came in to our bed early and at 6:30 am said "I want cereal" to which i responded "Talk to your Dad" and rolled over and slept for another 2 hours! Bliss!
We polished off two loads of washing, had some lunch and then headed to the park. After playing at the park for some time we grabbed a few things at the shop. When we came home Ash cooked dinner and I did some more weeding out the front with Boogie. Oh the meal was heavenly, cooked to perfection. As a special treat Ash prepared some strawberries and we ate them covered with yogurt. Yum!
I went to work for a couple of hours and Ash made the bed and did the dishes. When I returned his parents were here. They stayed for a while and when they left Ash returned to the movie he'd been watching before they arrived so I jumped on the computer. I went out to the lounge about 2 hours ago and he was asleep in the arm chair, where he remains even now :)
Oh and my beautiful Boogie insists on picking me little flowers every time he come across one! Awe, this boy is too cute!

Boy did i hit the op shops! I bought a frame to make a Montessori practical life dressing frame plus some clothes for them. It worked out cheaper to get two extra pieces of kids clothes so I got a onesie for bub number two (I shouldn't have- we have so much already!) and a top for my niece. Later I also found a cute pair of jeans for my niece too (she is constantly outgrowing them!). I also got a summer dress and a button up shirt (breastfeeding friendly) for myself and a cloth nappy for bub. All this for $20.50.
Now all i have is make turn the three frames I've collected into dressing frames.
Meanwhile we have one more day until bub is due- come on bubba make your entrance already we want to meet you!
