Well, it's taking me forever to get this blog up and running…not helping that i really don't know what i am doing but i figured if i wait till i have all the design sorted i will never start writing so i guess i will just try and learn as i go. Would love to figure out how to add photos to the title/masthead though!
Anyway, i'm not really sure as yet what exactly i will be writing about each day but hopefully it will chronicle our family life and remind me of some good times in each day rather than the teary ones. To be honest it has been a rough week…the twins are now 15 months but gosh they are just so different and so demanding in their own ways…one has a good day or night and the other doesn't then they seem to have a meeting when i'm not looking and change the rules on me again! Parenting is an ongoing journey and i know i am still fighting off the spectre of postnatal depression but i am hanging in there. Currently trying to get Tara to sleep past an hour in the day..it just isn't enough for her or me!(can't believe i literally just wrote that and she woke up…sigh!) Deep breaths, deep breaths…i was so hoping to do some writing and maybe baking but i guess it will have to wait.
On a brighter note, our chookies (we have 3 australorps and really must name them sometime!) are laying well and Gary is working hard on getting the fences(made from old pallets) built around the vegie patch so that we can let them out of the tractor each day for a free range.
Our local show is on on the weekend and i am looking forward to taking the girls and looking at the animals, chookies, jams, baked goods etc….not interested in sideshow alley, the teenager has to go with her friends for that! Although if this rainy weather keeps up it looks like it will be a sloshy one again!
I would like to add a ‘Happy Moment' to each post to remind myself that there are some in each day and always something to be thankful for so today's is this…..
TODAY'S HAPPY MOMENT
Ruby and Tara's first experience with water paint and brushes on paper…..and the fence, the slide, themselves, me, the dog, the mat and house wall…..my bubs are growing up and they seemed to love the new experience, i am so thankful i am able to be home each day with them still to do these things with them first.
What was your happy moment today i wonder?
