And now the fun begins

Just a short note - Baby M is home!!!  She was given the all clear and came home one sunny (slightly chilly) morning.  And what a homecoming - she slept.  She slept so much that I was able to make a quilt cover for Little Miss M (picture to follow in a different post).

Of course - overnight was a different story and I got to know Baby M very well in the wee hours of the morning!

I have to say, my little girl - Little Miss M - has been a real trooper through this whole experience.  I'm sure she is going through an emotional roller coaster ride at the moment, but she is trying REALLY HARD to be a good girl and a great big sister.  Even at her worst so far, Little Miss M is coping well.

I'm so proud of you, Little Miss M!  I can't begin to imagine what is going on in that sweet mind of yours, but you're doing really well with all the changes.  I couldn't ask any more from you.

Times are a-changin', aren't they?  I am struggling to find a good balance between getting to know Baby M and ensuring Little Miss M is not missing out on anything (food, attention, clean underwear).  I feel guilty enough thinking this, so please don't shoot me for writing this, but, as I struggle, I do miss the "three of us" family.  It was just a lot easier.  I remember having the luxury of giving Little Miss M all of my attention when she was just a newborn.  And I feel like I'm missing out on Little Miss M at this glorious age.  I know there will come a time that I can enjoy both of my girls equally (and with energy), but right now I feel like I am sacrificing one for the other.  ** sigh **

Oh yes - and I'm stressing about not having a camera as it is currently out for a service.  It's all about timing... I was supposed to have a few more weeks!!!  So there is a distinct lack of photos at the moment.

Enough of that - I have my two girls with me now (and my Dear Husband) - and that is a blessing in itself.  Welcome Home, Baby M!!!

Visions, Goals, Plans... Oh My

I'm a sucker.  And I've got an addictive personality.  And I rationalise and justify everything I do.  So, it's never a good idea for me to pick up a new hobby... aka addiction... unless it's truly good for me.

I picked up the capsule wardrobe thing... good.

I picked up the skincare/makeup thing... not so good ($$$).

I latched onto the no shampoo thing... good.

And now I'm onto the Kikki K thing... so NOT good.

I'm into it.  So so so into it.  My life can be soooo much better with the help of stationary and vision boards and stickers and pens and yep... workshops.

It's mid-year and I'm goal setting.  I've never been a believer in the New Year's Resolution movement, but mid-year goal setting... I'm all over that like a rash, baby.

I've "invested" in a planner so that I can live each day with purpose.

I've "invested" in a vision board so that I can keep motivated.

And I've attended a Goals Workshop so that I can…

Happy Birthday Little Miss M

I asked Little Miss M - Do you want to have your birthday at a play centre and you can invite lots of friends, or do you want me to plan an at-home party with just a few friends?

After all the fun that she had been having at her friends parties being held at a play centre, I was very surprised when Little Miss M opted for an at-home party.  Apparently, I'm loved because I plan the birthdays.

And so a birthday party was planned... A FURBY PARTY!!  Dah-Noh-Lah!  Party party!!

We had games...

A photo booth with props... (and we printed out the photos for the guests to take home)

We had cake...

And we sent the party guests home with a furby key chain, a photo from the photo booth and some homemade love...

Yes, I had to take a few days off from work to get everything done.
Yes, the Furby cake was filled with smarties and m&m's (not sure why we don't have a picture of it).  And I really don't want to think of how much butter was used to make the cake and the frosting!!

Growing up; growing together

My little girls are growing up.They’re catching up with each other, and then they’re racing away as they go through their developmental growth spurts.But whatever the case, they are growing together.And it’s the joy of my life.You know that feeling?When you’re just sitting there, watching, enjoying, with a goofy smile on your face.Yeah – that feeling.It’s awesome.

One day, after Little Miss M and Dear Husband had already left for the day, I was lounging around in bed – ok, I was wallowing in self-pity over my head cold.Before he left, I think Dear Husband had a quiet word to the two little one to let me rest.
And so they did.I heard some shuffling.I heard some whispering.I heard some furniture being moved around.I heard some “help please Ditse”.I heard some “Ssshhh, mama’s sleeping.”
Of course, who can resist that?I had to get up to see what was going on.And this is what I saw…

Little Miss Independence and Little Miss Independence-in-training.  Gee willie winkies – they’re clever, huh?
