Often I read quotes/poems and I immediately think "Wow I'll have to remember that or write that down." Of course it's one of those "gunna" things- I was gunna, but.....So from now on I will post them here to keep them.
"How we treat the child, the child will treat the world" - Pam Leo


Well what a nightmare yesterday waas. I had to cut that post short because Levi fell/jumped off my knee and banged his chin on the desk. Poor baby bled all over my shirt too!

Anyway, we have mice living with us. They are uninvited and we can't for the life of us get rid of the beggars. I am hoping the real estate will pay for an exterminator, because it's just gross to see the little thing(s??) sticking it's head out from under the heater or running from the boys' room. I'm seriously contemplating moving, but I desperately want to pay off these debts and get some savings together before paying more money in rent. Gah, I could drive myself crazy having this conversation over and over again, so I'll stop now and leave you with a pic of a monkey I crocheted for an eb friends' baby.

And a pic of Raife @ 6 weeks!

At the moment, my beloved second child is driving me crazy. He is just whining and whinging. The noise is enough to drive one insane.......
At playgroup today he was fine but as soon as he woke from his nap it started again. Also, he just wants to sit on me ALL the time.
I think he's bored. Ah, if only I had the energy to do something with him today.
shit he just banged his head...

I feel busy, even though I am not doing a lot. I feel like all my time is taken up with very important things but that I get nothing done. Nothing is finished, nothing is achieved. The house is a mess, the kids are neglected and I don't even have the excuse of having a settled baby to explain it away. I think I'm tired. Or lazy!!
Hmmphh this is really not a happy post is it? I feel happy. Most of the time. Maybe I just picked the wrong time to do this. Oop Raife is awake anyway. Hungry again. I'll bbl.

The sounds of silence

Hunter and Levi are at daycare. It's so quiet in the house. I have been able to make a few phone calls and clean up a bit. It's great. AND Levi didn't cry when I left him today. *happy dance*

I got a beautiful present in the mail yesterday- actually I should say that Raife got a beautiful present yesterday. The lovely girls on eb in my parent's group sent a gift box for Raife with things they made themselves and stuff they bought.

Here are some piccies: (they don't do it justice though)

the box- handpainted with Raife's name

The box stuffed with goodies

Even this parcel is wrapped beautifully! Loopy Loo goodies
