Ahh It's Been Awhile

My goodness I haven't written anything in such a long time! Where to start?

Our computer had a bit of an accident and it was looking terminal but it is okay. Not perfect but functional so all is well in the world.

My thoughts are very scattered at the moment so I fear that this post maybe too!

I had a funny incident with The Boogie a few days ago which I just never want to forget!

I was feeding Little One on the couch and The Boogie was out the front weeding. He comes to the window and knocks. I turn, he shows me a big handful of weeds and I congratulate him on a job well done.

"Look at the... Look at the books Mama" He says.

I briefly look away from the window to the bookshelf. I quickly turn back when he is not looking to see him "planting" his weeds in my pot bearing an eggplant.

"I saw that... you put the weeds in my pot plant" I call.

"I planting weeds. They're going to grow into big tomatoes" He informs me.

The poor chicken keeps calling my tomato plants weeds. I aways inform his that no they are not weeds they are tomato plants and they are going to grow tomatoes on them. Now he seems very confused about the origin of tomatoes. Whoops!

It was about 35 Celsius today so I kept the boys inside until late this afternoon. Then we hit the garden! I transplanted a bunch of tomato seedlings and am happy to report that quite a few zucchini seedlings are doing well! I'm not so happy to report that the tomato seedlings I transplanted with the zucchinis did not fare so well between The Boogie and the snails. We pulled up some carrots that I planted ages ago but they are all stumpy and short. Next time I wont do it in egg cartons first with The Boogie we will throw them straight in the garden and see if they come out bigger! Always learning :)

On a totally unrelated point my Little One is six weeks old today. It does feel like he has been here that long but it definitely shows. About a week or so ago he lost that newborn look and now looks like a solid infant! He is a little character. He looks a lot like The Boogie did but he has a very different temperament. It's exciting to see how we all develop with each other as a family.

WFMW- Boogie Free Time

Works For Me Wednesday

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!

Tackle It Tuesday: Baby Shoes

A friend of mine gave me his old sewing machine on Sunday so I decided my Tackle would be these cute soft sole baby shoes. This is my first sewing project in ten years that didn't involve straight lines (usually not very straight) and my mother! And ten years ago I had a home economics teacher for help!

The material is small fabric samples that a friend gave me and I stole the thread off my mother years ago so all in all a very cheap craft project for me!

Could You Forgive Your Child?

We had a scary incident today. We were due to go out for Ash's birthday dinner and Little One was asleep in his carrier on the ottoman so I nipped in to our room to get changed. Ash asked me where Little One was and I told him. He went into the lounge to check on him and informed me that he wasn't in his carrier- he was on the couch.

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?
