I have just realized that i missed the whole point i was trying to make it the previous post! lol! At the doctors this morning we were "welcomed" by one of the nurses and we could tell right away that i was going to be a rough ride. As soon as we were taken into the back room the interrogation began, why is he getting them at this age, don't you know they are at a set age for a reason, young mums today, etc etc! I was furious!! I decided that i could and would not sit by and be spoken to like that. I stood and very calmly stated my points and beliefs about vaccines and continued on at make a very polite statement about be being the ultimate decision maker for my children. After this the nurse was very subdue and carried on to dose out the vaccines that i had previously approved. My point of this ramble is how very hard it is in today's society to stand up to people such and teachers, doctors etc and say "this is my child and this is how i want things done". My heart goes out to the teen mums and mums who are not so sure of themselves. You are too easily walked all over and pushed into things you might not necessarily agree with.

Anyway, my final point of the evening, stand strong in your beliefs and you decisions on how to raise your children!! They are created by God and entrusted to the PARENTS to care for. Remember this next time a pushy Doctor or teacher is making you question the way you feel about something. xxx

The great imunization debate.

DS 8months had his second set of immunisation's today and it sparked my thinking around the subject.
DS 6 was not immunized as a baby. I looked very deeply into the risks, benefits and ingredients of all the scheduled jabs and made an informed decision not to do them. Then in stepped Mr Mum! He is a firm believer in vaccines and as the good submissive wifey that i am, i cut him a deal, he could vaccinate DS6 as long as i never had anything to do with it. And so he did. DS6 is now fully immunised. What shocked me was how dramatic the difference in his health was once he was done. All of a sudden he started picking up stomach bugs, coughs and colds, flu's, chest infections and ear infections. Do i regret it? No, not necessarily, but i am still not completely sold on the whole process.
So DS8months is not on shedule, but he has had his 6 week ones (at 6 months) and his 3 month ones (today). The actual administration of them was a breeze, a few tears and then over it. As for reactions... the first lot he was sooooooooooo grumpie!! This time, he has slept and slept and is so sad!! Its heartbreaking!! So needless to say, he will be in our bed tonight!!

Had a fabulous day today! I woke up EARLY!! So before the kids started making noise i had done the washing, dishes, vacuuming, dinner prep, my bed made and gotten my hair straightened!! Go mummy!!! Was amazing to have a catch up with a very wonderful friend of mine after school!

Tomorrow is d day for DS6. His class is off to raglan beach for the day and due to his behaviour yesterday, he cant go! Mr mum is off on a training day and so we will be home without a car! Seems like a perfect opportunity to start getting christmasy to me!!

Apreciating the good life.

I am sitting on out back lawn, sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset while my babies sleep and i cant help contemplating how easy it is to get stuck in a rut and bogged down in the negative.

Boys and their bits!!

What a way to open a blog! I have decided i need a place to write about all the things that go on in everyday life and get the things in my head onto "paper" so i dont turn into a mental case! It also makes for a great way to look back over the things i write and find fond (and not so fond) memories for the family!
Let me introduce myself!
I am a 25 year old female with two beautiful boys DS6 and DS8months (DS = Darling Son). I have a wonderful partner, we will call him Mr Mum!! We live on a small dairy farm, which Mr Mum runs and i am lucky enough to stay home with the kiddies! We have a dog called sophie, a cat and 6 fish!

What a day i am having!! We have just returned from a beautiful weekend away to the beach, staying with Mr Mums parents. What fun we had splashing in the ocean and having hot chips in the sand!! Mr Mum even got to go diving!!

Today began like any other monday, Crazy morning followed by dropping DS6 off to school!
About lunchtime, whilst in the middle of grocery shopping, Mr Mum and I recieve a phone call from the school...... DS6 and some friends had taken themselves to the back field to show off their "bits"!! How embarresing!!! As is to be expected Mr Mum and i are disgusted, disappointed and super embarresed!!
DS6 arrived home to the silent treatment and found himelf stuck in his empty bedroom for 90 minutes to think about his actions and is going to be missing out on his end of year school beach trip.
BOYS BOYS BOYS BOYS BOYS!!! What is the facination with their bits and peices!!!!??? DS8months has already started being facinated and Mr Mum is still!! Does it never end!!??
