Well... today Russ, Tess, Joshua, Haylea, Sienna and Bodhi go up to Whitianga for three days.
As that is where Joshua lives, he will go back to his Mum's house when Russ and Tess come back here.
So... things will be a bit quieter around here for a few days.
I'm going to miss her cute antics while they are away. But I don't think I will miss her temper tantrums.
She's entered the Terrible Two's a bit early, and is quite a handful.
Our plans for the day? Well I'd like to go out SOMEWHERE... so might give it some thought ... maybe a picnic at the beach? Wonder if I can tempt Bex and Steve to take baby Dante out?
MARIA: YEP, we had already thought of that. WHEN they get up outta bed we will see what they want to do.
Yaaa... we are ALL off to the Outlet Shops in Onehunga. Time to get outta the house for a little while... even though it's not going to be the picnic I would have liked, it's still going out. It's a cloudy, overcast wet day...
ABOVE: gorgeous Bodhi, I'm sure he's grown heaps since they arrived 4 weeks ago! He didn't have any teeth when they arrived, now he has TWO... AND he can roll over now too.
ABOVE: Coco doesn't care who she lies on... what a hussy.
ABOVE: Coco checking out Dante, all was going well until Dante moved his arm and touched Coco on the head... that was enough for Coco! That little human thing was a bit of a worry.
ABOVE: welcome to the world of baby bags, car seats and prams Steve and Bex.
ABOVE: doesn't our girl look fantastic only two and a half weeks after having a baby! She is doing well.
AND I might add... she is eating really well too... with lots of lollies, biscuits and nuts thrown in for good measure.
After braving the crowds at Dress Mart, we headed off to Sylvia Park for lunch.
ABOVE: No problem getting a park today.
ABOVE: Mike loved these t-shirts, but at $60 a pop, he didn't get any, but did want me to take a photo of them so he can get them replicated down in Palmy.
BEC: I sold it before we came up here... couldn't imagine riding a scooter in Auckland traffic!
I found something out this afternoon that sent me into a big downer... I was really, really upset so took myself off to my room to try and calm down. Some people just take the cake... *shaking head*. Feeling like I've been kicked in the teeth.
But... in a while it will not matter... I just have to accept some things will happen that I don't like... and move on.
You have gotta know PEPSI has been updated eh?
End of Day: whoops! forgot to do it! Oh well...
here's a belated nite nite!
