Well... I admit that I am somewhat a control freak.

In specific situations, I like knowing when things are going to happen and how it's going to be.

And I get really mad when things don't go according to plan. Especially when I leave detailed instructions and warnings.

But no, things dun always go to plan. And I hate it when no one sees the urgency in things. It TRULY pisses me off.

I am really mad now. Someone just tell me it will be alright.

Not a Happy Chappy

Never irritate me when I'm in a foul mood.

I would simply ignore you and go abouts doing my own stuff. Or I would just nag. Or push me hard enough and I swear you would wish that you were never born.

I guess no one knows it better than Darien. And half the time he wouldn't even have a clue what made me pissed. Bless his heart.

Anyway, I blame the hormonal imbalance on the lack of chirpiness in the last few days. A week late and my entire body system is outta whack. So much so that I am not motivated to do anything or walk out of my house today.

But life goes on and I've got errands to run. Children to feed. Things to be mailed out. And responsibilities to be carried out. :)

I've washed my hands off some things as well. It's all up to someone else to finish that race.

Let's hope everything goes well from here forth.

In Review

It's been a busy week.

It just flew by in a wink of an eye.

There would be changes in the coming months and I am really excited about it! Hopefully it would work out well, if not, we have to reevaluate plans again.

But for now, it's time for me to be me again! Albeit a busier one though.

House Hunting

Two days without the husband... again..

I would say that things are going pretty well. The two kiddos are behaving really nicely (although I know thing would go downhill after I say this) and we've been really busy.

I'm back on the househunting track. And this time it's a lot easier doing it by myself, strangely.

I've seen more properties in these two days than with Darien in the last couple of weeks.

I just hope that we would not get outbid this time round. People are really aggressively buying up. And prices are just skyrocketting in all suburbs. Sighz.

Now I just need to talk to the mortgage broker.

Peekture Time

Our own Cirque Kiddo

How to resist that smiley face?!

Kayden's very worried looking Cargo

Our Day out @ Mornington

Cheeky Fellas

Here's looking at cha, mate!

Rain Rain Go Away

The skies have been really overcast lately in Melbourne. We've been experiencing wet and muggy weather for the entire week.

Due to the horrendous amount of rain, we've been staying indoors. It's driving the boys a lil insane and frankly, it's been boring the crap outta me as well.

So we've been finding things to do for them. Like building block castles, having tea parties (I know... but we taught Kayden how to propose a toast and he's really hooked on it) and just a whole load of running around. They've been fighting for the same toys lately and it's a constant effort to get them to "share." But kids being kids... sharing's a foreign concept to them.

I've taken this time to observe the differences between the two kids and despite their close age gap, they cannot be anymore different from each other.

I find that Baby J is really calm. He only cries when his diaper's dirty, he's been put down to sleep or he needs to be fed. Other times, he would whinge a lil when his toys get snatched away.

He's getting really good at crawling now, albeit his actions which are still really robotic. And he loves to crawl into the toilet. Why? I really dun know. But if I can't find him anywhere, I'll know where he's at.

Kayden is going thru that really horrible "Terrible Twos" phase now. Most times, we win the battle with distraction but it's hard to win sometimes. So we pick and choose our battles.

He's living proof that kids know too much abt technology these days. He would know which remote control would function for which device. He's capable of switching the computer, Foxtel and telly off. And he knows how to work the washing machine. And when we want to put something to wash, he would kindly turn on the lights to the laundry for us.

Clearly Darien's so taken by his two kids that sometimes he cannot help but laugh at their antics. And it leaves most of the disciplinary work to me. Go figure... the wonders of being a mom.

Being sick really sucks.

I've got this tummy bug that is sending me to the loo a coupla times an hour. And it's been like that since last night. Totally lost my appetite.

Thank God the hubby took some time outta work to look after the two lil tykes. Or else, I think I would've not made it thru the day...

Mommy's Day

It didn't exactly kick off on the right note becos the boys were sick. Both had flu with Kayden being the one that's a lil more affected.

We almost aborted our plans to drive down to the mornington peninsular but since the lil ones were almost knocked out by their medication, Darien figured we should just go ahead.

The weather was perfect. It was sunny and warm. Perfect for a long drive.

But becos we arrived late at the cellar door, we didn't make it in time for the lunch @ Paringa Estate. The food looked really good and fresh. I told Darien that we have to head back there one day to eat.

Paringa was named the winery of the year by James Halliday. And truly, their wines are worth every medal they got. Beautiful full bodied pinots and shirazes are their signatures. I also got to see the winemaker and owner before we left with seven bottles of wine.

We headed off to Port Philip Estate for some Koo yong before heading home. By then, my wine happy husband who wine-drank instead of tasted, was too tired to drive so I had to take us home.

The boys were a tad better when we got home after dinner. I guess fresh air did them some good. But I can't ask for a better day. :)

I spoke to two really rude people on the phone today.

And while I consider myself to be a relatively friendly person, I dun appreciate being spoken down to and shut off by people who've made stupid decisions that would affect their business. My threshold of tolerance stops at hostility. Period.

That said, I am going to write a letter of complaint to their management and they had better have a damn good reason for the stinkin attitude today. A letter of apology had better be in the mail soon as well.

Need Sleep Now

Being sleep deprived is probably one of the more terrible things to endure in life.

Kayden's been waking up in the middle of the night, lately. And he would cry for a bit and search for his dummy. Which he can't find cos he's lost them all. So we are taking the opportunity to wean him off as well.

And then Baby J would wake up cos he'd heard his older brother crying. And then it would take a lil while to pop him back to slumberland.

It is painful. And it betta stop soon cos I'm blardy tired and I miss my night's worth of sleep.

Boy Talk

Lately, the boys have been communicating with each other in baby talk. It sounds like a secret language btw the two of them.

The lil one would be crawling and then Kayden would go to him and talk to him. He would share his food with him and feed him things like banana. When Baby J cries in the pram, Kayden would pass him some rice cereals to keep him quiet. All too funny..

Kayden's also been a lot more generous with his toys these days. He would let Baby J touch them and fiddle with them. However, he still feels the need to exude his authority when there's a "need" to. And then subsequently move all the toys out of his brother's reach.

That said, there have been moments when Baby J feels the need to speak his mind. There are times when he would make a loud growling sound when Kayden takes his toy away and show he's displeased.

Clearly, I have two assertive children. And loud ones at that. O boy... I see so much of me in them that it's not funny. I can imagine the conversations we would have in twenty years.

A Summary

A lil date is always nice.

Kids waking up @ the break of dawn is not.

Spiderman 3 was an awesome show.

Front row seats are not too bad.

Baby J @ 8mths is a tad too adorable.

"Terrible twos" come early is not really acceptable.

Lately, Darien and I have been getting some couple time.

After a big bust up [and a good reality check] a few weeks ago, we've decided that we need to give babysitting a go. Simply becos we have no friends [with a good baby inclined knowledge] or relatives here to help us out with the kids.

I am really skeptical abt the entire arrangement, becos I have this crazy apprehension abt strangers coming to my house and looking after my children. But all that has been put to rest by the babysitters we've found.

Thus far, the kids are well fed and put to bed by the time we get home. Also, they are a lot more comfortable being in their own home with all their toys, strewn in any direction that they like to.

And we, *breathes*, can go out and just do adult stuff and not worry abt prams, spews and tantrums. It works out well for our relationship and we get to have conversations with other adults. I get to wear my nice clothes out. So we are happy campers all round.

I can see us doing this for many moons to come. I think it's time that I can finally get away.
