Well as if my life wasn't hard enough we've bought a house and will be selling our current home. Insane. Have to get this place ready for sale photos by Monday have a skip ordered for tomorrow and am basically doing an enormous cull of everything I can lay my hands on to look like we have a tidy house.
JFB Lucy's at school and Scarlett's at kindy 5 days a fortnight. Marc starts preschool 2 days a week next February. So I'm home with 3 kids under 5 most of the week. I need a few of these

OMG Sonja. You truly are mad!!
Good luck. I would offer my services if I was closer.

Oh Sonja. That is hard work. We are doing opens at the moment and I have to ship DH and the kids to my MIL every Sat for about 3 hours so I can clean the house every Sat morning. I know you don't have that option so I can imagine how impossible it must be.
It is good that you obviously found a place you love though.
Henry has been waking up at night for about 1-2 hours almost every night lately. And every time I think of you and how hard it must be for you going through it all again. I guess the positive is that you do know it gets better (to a degree. Lol). Hopefully Astrid with sort her sleep patterns out a bit for you soon.

Sonja - Hats off to you. It's a huge job having 4 kids. My mum had 4 kids in 5 and a half years and she had a very strict routine to get through it all. Selling the house after returning home with a newborn is hellish But congratulations on finding the right house for your family
amum - getting very close to your op. You will feel and look amazing by summer
Kel - Waking every night for that long must be torturous. Let's hope Mr Henry resettles soon
Hi to everyone. I've been flat out as Stella turned 1 on the weekend and I had to make 2 cakes, had organised 2 parties (1 for family and close family friends) and 1 to celebrate with girlfriends at a brunch/lunch. Stella has started teething again and is not a happy chicky. I'm very sleep deprived (she woke up 3 times last night), and would sell my right arm for some decent rest right now. Small stuff really.
I still can't believe she is 1. She had a ball at her parties, being cuddled and carried by lots of her favourite people, and loving the helium balloons and cakes At 1 that's as good as it gets

Millie - How can she be 1 already, gosh that time has gone fast. Glad to hear she enjoyed her parties.
Sonja - OMG, now I know you must be a super mum. I get exhausted just reading your posts 😄

Sonja - wow so much on your plate, congratulations on the new house. I've been entertaining the thought of moving but the thought really makes me want to . Hope Astrid stops getting days/nights mixed up soon.
Millie - Happy birthday Stella ..can't believe she's 1. Teeth are the devil, thankfully Evie has finally got through it for awhile, her last 2 were the worst ever.
Yes well I feel like a bus has hit me, Evie has another nasty cough and woke up 9.30 last night, didn't get back to bed until midnight then awake again at 3am and I worked today. Feel like I shouldn't be complaining about the lack of sleep though as it doesn't happen often...thankfully! I would be in a straight jacket if it did, however I'm sick of the sickness, we've been in and out of it constantly for 2 months now, the good run we had up until now has bitten us in the bum.

Sonja, all I can say is wow. I hope you manage to come out the other side of all of this with sanity still in tact. I often envisage you with a Wonder Woman cape on with the way you juggle things. You are one tough mum.
Millie, happy birthday to your sweet little Stella. Sounds like she enjoyed her 1st birthday. Thankfully they only come around once a year..... they can be hard work.
JFB, how's E's sleep - hope the week off has helped?
Kismet, I feel for you. I think it hits you a lot harder when you've been used to getting good sleep and then hit a rough one. Hope Evie's cough is on the mend.

Oh and I hope everyone has a lovely Father's Day!!

how is everyone? Very quiet here lately.
Finally got Evie a big girl bed this week, a bit overdue. Thought I would have dramas transitioning her but she loves it, can't keep her out of it.
