Party allocations

The cutest thing tonight… Sallie made a whole lot of cupcakes for Will to take to kindy tomorrow… it’s his birthday the next day so he’ll have a little birthday thing at kindy before. You bring your own cakes of course, and Will’s were nearly ready. I thought he might want to grab one now, ...

Trying…

As in difficult. It’s all good really, but sometimes small children can just drive you nuts. Alex is getting really frustrated with not being able to communicate with us properly… we want to try some more sign language just to help him out with that. And Alex seems to have killed my mobile phone, unbelievably ...

Karate Boy and Pixar Studios

Took Will to karate again today… he had fun, but I couldn’t really hide some disappointment as well… he didn’t try much, didn’t focus at all, didn’t follow anyone’s instructions. I know he’s only four, but we’re trying to get him to mature a bit… he’s supposed to start school next year, and he’s doing ...

Kung Fu Panda Karate

Will went to his first karate lesson today, at a local class at a nearby high school. We had someone over a week ago advertising them, and after some thought we decided it might be a good  idea for him to get involved. Some fun activity, help his coordination and concentration, and so on. So ...

Happy Birthday Mum 1

Well, it’s my mother’s birthday today… no mentions of age of course. Drove over for a brief hello and some present giving before they went out for dinner. Got Mum a digital photo frame, mostly for pics of us and the kids… should be handy 🙂 Speaking of pictures, we took Will and Alex for ...

The thing about New Years…

Is that Willl hates fireworks. He really hates them. He’s absolutely petrified by them. We really don’t have any idea why, but everytime we’ve gone near fireworks displayed he is physically terrified. To the point that he can’t even be in the same room when they’re on television. So you can imagine what it’s like ...

Happy birthday Sallie!

It would be quite remiss of me to not mention this here 🙂 Happy birthday Sallie… you are my wife, my love, mother to Will and Alex, and everything to me. I hope you had a wonderful day today, and hope you have a wonderful day everyday. Now that’s a good Mum there 🙂 Share ...

The family role model

Went out for a drive around Blacktown yesterday, checking out our new area and the different facilities and things around the place. Seems we’re fairly well positioned for the most part; lots of services in both directions of home. And it’s a nice quiet street as well. I did however, manage to get thoroughly lost ...

Wall-E day!

Speaking from experience, Wall-E, released today in Australia, is a magnificent movie. Possibly the best movie this year. It’s funny, clever, child-savy, astute, insightful, awe-inspiring and just plain appealing. Pixar really can do no wrong. And I know this because I saw it three weeks ago at a special screening, with Will, and he’s the ...

Memo to Telstra, Optus, govt, whoever…

Will you all please get a move on and improve connection speeds and general Internet quality in this country? Because if Will’s reaction at the moment is anything to go by, if we don’t improve things soon he’ll be ballistic if he has to wait for a Flash movie still by age eight! At the ...
