What I have left....

"A mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn. One for every time you sucked your thumb, waved hello, closed your eyes and slept in the most perfect darkness. One for every time you had the hiccups. One for every dream you dreamed within me.
It isn't very pretty anymore. Some may even think it ugly. That's OK. It was your home. It's where I first grew to love you, where I lay my hand as I dreamed about who you were and who you would be. It held you until my arms could, and for that, I will always find something beautiful in it."
I was "unlucky" I got stretch marks when I was pregnant. Strangely enough I didn't with Charlotte, and I figured it was because my skin had already stretched and had them. 
 I just love love love this. Even though I don't really hate my Stretch marks this really makes me love my shiny little stretchies. I guess its really one thing (aside from my girls ... obviously) I have left to remind me of the time my little princesses were in my Belly. That I... ME created such beautiful little people. I AM AMAZING!!

Are you like me?

It seriously amazes me how my house can go from clean house to trashed house in less then 30 mins! When my girls are up that's it. I spend my entire day cleaning up after them both. From packing away toys that have been played with to paint on the table, hands and faces, to food splattered around the place. It really never ends.

Some days Most days I just ignore it and sing and dance with my girls, play hide and seek, craft, read books and just bum around with them. But then, once they are in bed, it's time to put my house back together again *sigh* I actually forget what its like to not have to clean the entire house everyday. Pre baby days it was a 1 hour job on a Saturday morning to clean the entire house. Now its hours and hours on end all day every day.

Bella great at packing her toys away. She definitely needs to be in a good mood when I ask her though. She is very proud of herself when its all done. She puts everything away in the right spots too, which I love! Books on the book case toys in their right toy barrel, bikes where the bikes live, Lego's in their boxes. Is this the making of a clean freak? I hope so, well maybe not a freak as such.

Now I just need to train the Husband!! HA!

Osama bin laden


My Dad was in the Army, he is now retired. Growing up with my Dad in the forces was hard. Not only personal challenges of travelling from school to school, house to house, but I always lived with the fear that one day he would have to go off to war. Thankfully, my Dad didn't have to go off to war as such, but that's another story.

I thought I would take a moment to weigh in on the discussion about Bin Ladens death and share my thoughts.

It was a public holiday here in Queensland. We had the TV on the kids channel whilst my Husband and I got on with the housework. Once the kids were in bed and it was time for us to put our feet up and have some lunch and watch TV, the news was all over the TV. Every single Channel {besides the kids channel}. We just looked at each other, dumbfounded. Wow Osama bin laden is really dead. They got him was the looks on our face. Then BAM! Just like that it hit me and I could see it hit Adam too. That sick feeling as we watched the footage of the Americans celebrating in the street.

Yes I believe its a good thing that this horrible man is now not alive and not in charge of Al-QaedaIt's left the world with one less evil person but there are hundreds if not thousands more like him.

For me I feel his death is a cause for concern.  I think we can all be 99% sure his death will be avenged only on a much larger scale. {We would be stupid to think that there wasn't a plan in place if he was ever killed}. More so now that pictures of the public in USA have been splashed all over the news celebrating a death like it's the greatest thing in the world. Why not just poke a bear with a pointy stick? A little bit of dignity goes a long way. The behaviour that's been on the news would be vilified if for example it was a bunch of "terrorists" celebrating the loss of lives after 9/11. Remember we often create our enemies by our behaviour.

Then there is the whole conspiracy theory about whether he really is dead. And the USA looking at releasing a photo as proof...

What's next for the world?

I do hope that this means the end of Al-Qaeda and we can all move past this and begin to all live in this world as harmonious as possible.
