Ode to coffee

Coffee coffee all brown and creamy 
You wake me up when I am dreamy 

You are a mummas bestest friend
You keep me going till days end. 

You make my brain as sharp as a tack.
You help me pick up all the slack.

With you I complete all my tasks
When I have you for my breakfasks.

You make my kid not seem so crazy
You stop me from being lazy. 

I feel like I could loop the loop,
But most of all - you help me poop.

Daily thoughts ...

Things I often think (and say)

"gosh I'm tired"

"ohhh, So THATs what that smell is"

"stop touching that"

"stop touching me"

"actually no that's MY booby"

"just eat something!"

"don't eat that!"

"crap where'd he go...?"

"...what will the neighbours think"

"I'm NEVER giving him chocolate again"

"plleeeaaasseeee can I just go to the toilet in peace... Just once!"

"no I cant fix that, it's snapped plastic"

"umm no that's not broken, mummy just took the batteries out of it"

"while I respect your independence and desire to dress your self that shoe won't go on that foot no matter how much you cry"

"4:30 am is a time you stay up until (in a previous life) NOT a time you get up!!!"

"oh goodness it's getting late - I'm going to bed" (at 9:45)

"no! You can't have a new ball EVERY TIME we go to kmart"

"sorry Bub - it's not your turn to drive"

"saying 'MINE' doesn't make it yours"

And lastly - at least once a day thinking how gorgeous he is, how lucky I am and that I can't imagine my life without him (though this usually happens when he's finally gone to sleep at night ;) )

Lies I tell my child!!!

'no there's no chocolate left honey we ate it all up!!!' (he was shocked as he saw the whole block not 15 minutes before) 

'mummy missed you too baby' (I'm so grateful to get a few hours away from Jasper when I go to college!)

'oh no mummy can't find toy story, what else do you want to watch?'

'tv is broken!'

'wine is yucky!'

'bubby mummy is sleeping' (well I'm TRYING to sleep)

And 'you can't stay up baby' (pfft he knows I can't MAKE him sleep :-))

'i don't know why that toy won't work..?' (I took the flipping batteries out!!!!)

 'sorry mummy has no money' when he asks for mon-neeee for the ride on toys at the shops.
I've told him once the police will come and get mummy if Jasper doesn't wear his seat belt... In the pram.... Shockingly it worked.

And a lie I plan to use at some point in the future is 'when the idecream truck is playing music it means they've sold out and have no ice-cream' :p

I'm mean :D

You know your tired when....

.... ... Your laying in bed with your child, get up, put them back to bed, go and pee, return to your own bed and jump and think 'omg where'd they go?!?' oooh that's right....

.... You think you've been to the toilet, but your not sure, and you can't remember and it takes more time and effort to work out if you actually feel like you need to pee than it would just take to go pee (again?)...

... You forget simple words, like 'you know, that thing, 'omg, you go through it.. DOOR!' (no I haven't, but I honestly can't remember any of the common words I've forgotten lately!

... You fully intend on being intimate with your spouse and then a moment later you
startle awake because they are tapping you on the shoulder.... :-)

... The opening scene from finding nemo makes your eyes well up even though you've seen it a BAZILLION times!!!

... In the middle of the night you reach out in a panic to catch your baby as they fall out if bed, only to realize you've caught your own pillow... And then a few nights later you nudge your pillow off the bed and it makes a disconcerting *thud -waahhhhhhh* sound...

... Or the time I checked the bassinet for 8 week old Jasper and asked DP where the baby was , who sits bolt upright in bed in instant panic I remembered he was in his cot. I wasn't worried, I knew I put him somewhere....

... You and your child fall asleep at 2pm and wake at 5pm and you lay awake trying to work out why if it's 5am why your not in your pajamas...

.... Or you say 'wow he slept through last night!!' only to be told no, actually he woke 3 times and I brought him to you, he breast fed, I put him back to bed... Meh... Didn't notice a thing. :-)

... Or you have to explain a black eye to concerned people and reassure them you really do sleep walk to fetch your baby out of the cot when it wakes and last night you walked face first into a half-open door. No really, most nights I have no memory of how he got from the cot to my bed! 


That's all for now :)

Just a thought...

Why do delays seem to cascade?

Plane delayed. Meeting my brother dan at the train station and he was lost, then on a slow train. Meet up and walk around in circles trying to find the train. Get on a train. Then find out it was the wrong train. Get off that train, get on another train back to pretty much where wr started. Now we are waiting for 'the correct train.

I left home 6 hours ago and am yet to arrive at my destination.....

Just a thought...

You probably need the coffee if it takes you the time till you get to a seat to realize why the barrister at the train station coffee shop gives you a funny look when you specify you'd like a take away cup.... Oooooh it's a train station - they are ALL in take away cups.

My weekend away

Phone. Check. Wallet. Check. Asthma pump. *ugh heavy* check. Breast pump. Check. Baby... Baby...? Oh wait baby is at my inlaws house this weekend and I'm going away to Melbourne on my own.

So I've just landed. Things to report; checking with no baby, no luggage, no portacot, pram and carseat, no tears, it's AMAZING!

As is getting off the plane and not having to track down a trolley and head to baggage collection.

Just me, my back pack and my knitting.

Because the flight was delayed by 30 minutes after boarding I had about 2 hours to complete a very cute pink and white beanie, (which I'll upload a photo of as soon as I work out how ;) )

Now on my way to meet my brother at 'southern cross station' which I do and probably will forever refer to as 'spencer street station' (same as despite living in Sydney for 4 years I still call woolies Safeway :D )

Then off to my best friends engagement party.

Loving public transport without a toddler!!!

(missing him already though :( )
