FFS. Music soothes the soul!!

Dear Baby G

Same old same old this week.  FFS
Tantrumming 3 year old making me look like mother of the year (NOT) every time we go out in public.  FFS
Teething non sleeping 18 month old.  FFS
Me with the flu.  FFS
School freaking holidays.  Why did I choose preschool that only runs in the school terms.  FFS
I found the camera cord.  It was in the camera case where I put it so it wouldnt get lost.  FFS
No booze for over a week as I am a responsible parent (if the baby ahd had another temp on friday night he would have gone to the lovely hopital emergency room) and I was the designated driver LIKE ALWAYS on saturday night.  FFS

I love these songs and have blasted them all week on my stinking laptop as we dont have a proper cd player.  FFS
I swear Dave Grohl says FFS in the film clip.  Its also very appropriate for FFS.  Its a classic Foo Fighters clip.!! 
We welcomed a "work" ipad into our home this week which apparently I am not allowed to use but a certain someone can check facebook all the time on it.  FFS
Thats me done for the week.  FFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FFS friday. I am getting a FFS tattoo.

Dear Baby G

I will keep this short and sweet.  Its my recipe on how to have a week where the only way to describe it is FFS!!

1 screaming, tantrum throwing 3 year old who twice in the week has had major meltdowns in public places.  I am still processing todays effort in the doctors waiting room but Wednesdays is a classic!!  I warned him not to but he did it anyway HE OPENED THE FIRE DOOR AT OUR SUPERMARKET SETTING OFF ALL THE ALARMS!!..  Totally freaked himself out and then had a meltdown as I would not let him back in the trolley.  FFS

Also why did I not know about the toy sale at aldi??  I would have avoided it like the plague.  FFS

A teething now sick baby who has only slept through once this week.  Not his fault I know but last nights effort is a champion one.  FFS 

Until last night I can honestly say I have never been up all night with either boy.  FFS

I should stop calling him the baby, he is nearly 18 months old.  FFS

I burnt my right hand on the sandwich press on Tuesday and burnt my left hand on a hotplate which had been turned on by a certain 3 year old on Thursday.  FFS

I have misplaced the camera cord.  FFS

That's it from me,  I am off to see if I have a bottle of wine in the fridge!!  FFS

Thanks again Dear BabyG!!

FFS friday. WHY

This week is brought to you by the word WHY.

WHY does the baby only walk when there is no camera to capture the big milestone.  FFS

WHY do I watch "one born every minute" and think another baby would be a good idea.  FFS

WHY cant kids get all their teeth all at once.  FFS

WHY will my children not sleep.  FFS

WHY did I listen to so much Bon Jovi while I was pregnant as now my children's theme song is


WHY did I put a random Bon Jovi clip in?  Because I just learnt how to do it .and I love Jon Bon Jovi  FFS

WHY did I forget the bag for preschool yesterday forcing me to run around buying stuff.  FFS

WHY did I spend 10 minutes picking up dog crap so the kids could play outside only to have them back in after 10 minutes.  FFS

WHY can I not find the remote and am to lazy to get up and change the channel I am watching NZ next top model.  FFS

WHY has it taken me until 10pm to finish this.  FFS

WHY is the only tone of voice my children use is the whinge.  FFS.

WHY did I write and publish a post on tuesday that made me sound like an emo which I am so not.  FFS

Thats it for me.  Thanks Dear Baby G!!

We moved 3 weeks ago to a rental property while our house is being built.  I still haven't unpacked. FFS

The HOTH has been understanding about how long it takes to unpack with 2 kids under my feet etc but his patience is wearing thin!  He has been away working this week and is expecting big things when he gets back.  He will have the shits.  FFS

Its the middle of winter and the rental has a wood fire which is NOT in working condition.  FFS

The back yard gets the sun for about 2 hours in the morning, I am using the dryer all the time, cant wait to get the power bill.  FFS

Not everything can go in the dryer, I have a back log of clothes drying everywhere.  FFS

Seems like every piece of clothing my children own cannot go in the dryer.  FFS

We moved in and found out there was no tv Aeriel, this is not the landlords problem as they do not consider tv to be an essential service.  FFS

Luckily I have a multitalented partner who was able to fix it.  Only after he got back from working away for the week.  FFS

No tv for a week really sucked.  FFS

After I finally got tv I switched it off 5 minutes later as there was nothing on.  FFS

In the 3 weeks we have been here I have had 3 long hot showers as the lovely landlord has only installed a tiny hot water system.  FFS

The landlord also found the cheapest oven, its not even fan forced.  FFS

The landlord also will not fix the side fences.  My dogs keep busting into the neighbours yard.  FFS

The HOTH got a call as his number is on the dogs collar.  That morning I had gone to do some sneaky shopping and left my phone at home.  He was mad.  FFS

The cats hate the new house and are not talking to me.  FFS

We are paying too much for this house but had to take it as the builder was ready to go.  FFS

The house is carpeted.  Enough said.  FFS

It has rained all this week just as we needed it not too as the builders were going to do the piering. FFS

The rental is a 25klm drive to our suburb.  We are constantly on the road.  The baby has the shits about being in and out of the car all the time especially on a thursday when we have to go twice for preschool drop off and pick up.  FFS

The 3 year old wants to "go home", hates the rental and constantly wants to k ow what happened to his house.  He also wants to help build the new one and paint it green.  Green??  FFS

The same 3 year old also wants to go back to "the turtle house" in Fiji and get more beads in his hair.  FFS

Stay tuned for a Fiji post now that I paid $150 for a computer guy to tell me that my laptop is fine just old and is safe to download my pictures on!!  FFS

Thanks to  for causing me to find another reason to not unpack!!
Dear Baby G
