Ok, so I may be a little slow on the uptake for blogging but trust me, it has been playing on my mind and is one of those fleeting thoughts you have each day that goes something like " Now I must look into setting up a blog..." (this thought has been recurring for about 6 months now!!)Then one of the kids needs something to eat, or the washing is ready to be hung out or brought in, or the baby needs a feed/change. I just never seem to get around to doing the things I initially set out to do. One of the fabulous perks of being a mum to three young children I guess. Yes, we have three magnificent creations - Saige (5), Tane (3) and our new baby Sienna (nearly 8 weeks). Things are put completely in perspective when I see these gorgeous faces. Even though I have my moments of not being the patient, perfect mum that I should be, I adore these kids and realistically they are the reason for and my main subjects for scrapbooking! Saige, our first born, is the most beautiful, independent, curious, intelligent, extroverted little soul!! She has begun Prep this year at Ormeau State School and even though she is among the youngest in the class - she has nailed the whole school thing, doesn't miss a beat!! We have just enrolled her for Little Athletics at the Helensvale club and she will start as of next Friday (5.30 - 8pm). How exciting, I don't know who was more excited, Saige or Jason (her Dad), who participated in Little A's as a kid (and went on to be very successful in athletics and running in particular)!! Jason still proudly holds one of the long distance records in Guyra!! Tane, our only boy - well he is a little bit of hard work at the moment. A definate DRAMA QUEEN if I have ever met one!!! He is about to turn three (1st October) and yet still refuses to talk properly. He has a dialogue all of his own and we are trying desperately to make him form his words and sentences properly. It's funny, whether it is a boy thing or a second child thing I don't know, but I wonder whenthis boy will speak properly!! And finally, our gorgeous baby girl Sienna (8 weeks). She is the main reason that I have finally got my A into G (ass into gear!) and started this blog. Because as all of us scrappin Mum's know - we don't always get to scrap on time and therefore some photos and milestone moments get pushed aside until we have time to create a layout. Therefore I wanted somewher that I could record the days events that I could go back to when I inevitably get the chance to scrap! Sienna was born on the 12 July 2007, and finally finally finally after having two children that are the 'spit' of their Dad, we have produced a specimen that actually resembles me. YES YES YES, dark hair, green eyes and my nose. How exciting!! I will look less like the Nanny now!! This is a fact! When walking with Saige and Tane through a shopping centre, I have been referred to as the nanny of my children. Can you believe it! This person refused to believe that I was in fact the childrens' mother and wholly and solely thought that I was their Nanny. Amusing now, but at the time I struggled to see the funny side after having twice told him I was their mother. Anyway, I cannot contain my elation that upon our third and final child, I have finally got some 'look-in' with her features. I am going to end my first ever blog right here, cause Tane needs Milo before bed, which he will drink whilst I read the nightly story to him ans Saige before Saige's bedtime, and then I will clean up the kitchen, feed and change Sienna, and hopefully make it into bed before 10pm. See ya tomorrow!!
p.s I did manage to get a really cool card made and sent to Parma (aka Grandpa, my Dad) for father's day. With all the kids handprints on it, I can't wait for him to get it!!
