Pregnancy Update: Week 28

I fell behind AGAIN! Infact this is the first post I've written in a week. You would think that now that school holidays are over I would have more time, but sadly no. I'm chasing my tail more than ever.

Anyhow a not much happened in week 28 anyway...

I needed an anti-d injection since I have a negative blood type and B has a positive one. I had to take Ethan and Mahli along to the hospital for the injection. They thought it was hilarious that I didn't get the needle in my arm... They couldn't stop talking about it for days afterwards.

Now lets see how long it takes me to post a week 29 update seeing as I am already 29 weeks...

Lately at ASWC- Baby related crafting!

I haven't shared what I've been doing over at ASWC lately and thought I better share it now.

I've been sharing my pregnancy album pages:

See I may have been reasonably quiet around here. But I've been busy over there!

Be Still And Know

  • Nothing bad will happen because the clothes aren't folded or the dishwasher isn't unloaded...
  • Nothing bad will happen because there are toys spread all over the loungeroom
  • Nothing bad will happen if you simply pack the kids up, walk out the door and head to the park instead of folding said clothes or unloading said dishwasher, infact only good can come of it.

It is true the saying 'the days are short but the years and long'. But even the years aren't very long and before you know it they will be flying the coup and you'll be left wondering why you worried about the dishes or the clothes or the toys so much.

I don't know about you but I need to stop worrying about the mess the kids make when they are having fun and just simply bask in the glory of them having fun AND making mess.

I need to get the paints out more often, let them go wild with the glitter... oh the glitter. Not worry about the playdough ending up in weird places about the house because nothing bad will come of it.

That's right, nothing bad will come of it. I need to say that to myself more often and focus on creating memories instead of worrying about mess. It'll be there for me to clean after our hearts are full from simply spending time with each other. And sometimes just being still and relaxing together is enough too.

And when you have had enough of the noise and you simply want to be still ALL BY YOURSELF, well nothing bad will come of that either.

Winter Sunshine

This morning I packed some food and herded the kids out the door with their soccer balls and I took along my crochet. We were destined for the outdoors out of necessity as B is on nightshift at the moment and I needed them out of the house so he could sleep.

But what started out as necessity turned into a very very very pleasant morning spent in the winter sunshine. The kids ran around, played soccer and explored all without ANY fighting and I sat in peace with my crochet and well, simply enjoyed the peace and quiet.

There was no one else at the 'lake' the whole time we were there as well, so it really was just us and the birds.

They are all having quiet time now and I'm going to have a cuppa and do that same before the afternoon madness starts.
