exhausting morning

I am very exhausted this morning.
I had a rough night and little sleep, not only because yesterday Zalia had her 4 month vaccination. She had her vaccinations at 11 and by 4 o'clock was acting strange, screaming and not wanting to go to sleep not wanting to leave me or be put down. Jason came home at 6 when he said he would be home at 5.30. My parents are not here they are at their home near the blue mountains and are going to renovate it so they can rent it out again as the tennant has left.
So it is now 12pm, I have had lunch (chicken burrito left overs from lst night) and desert (custard and vanilla icecream) and I left Joaquin at preschool at 9am he was very teary and sad and cried and just said he wanted me and did not want to play or listen to the talk by one of the kid's dad a chiropracter on bones.

So it was my first morning at home with the two kids and trying to get them out of the house by 8.30am with Joaquin very tired and teary and Zalia still a bit run down from yesterday's vaccination.

It is very hard having two childrent and looking after them and trying to rest and be calm. I don't know how other mothers do it and work and run a ship-shape household. I honestly applaud them.
I am lucky that Zalia is a good bub and Joaquin is such a smart little boy.
Anyway I will pick up Joaquin early and then we can rest when we all get home.

Saw this book Kidwrangling and want to buy it.

catching up

Feeling better, after my operation and the good news that all is well.

Yesterday walked to Coogee with a friend and met up with the mothers with the mothers group.
I saw the whales going past around Wedding cake island. We sat and watched out to sea and talked and the babies played and we breast fed. Some of the baby boys are very big but the mothers are telling me they have to give formula top ups. Just like Joaquin. Zalia is doing well.

Things that I wanted to write down lately!
Things Joaquin said today 19th August 2010

1) I said this morning when he woke up, “we are going to preschool” he said “its too many days” something along the lines.
2) I showed him a dead lorikeet on the way to preschool. I said look it does not move, it is dead. He said “Is that what dead means, when it does not move?:

Zalia did not do a poo since a big one on Saturday lunch time in Scone. Today she did one, four days later. It had fibrous pieces and hair. She sucks her hands alot and consumes fibers.
Zalia slept a few days in the moses in the cot. 12th of August till the 15th August. (But we were in Scone on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th and she slept in a portacot in the room, quite well.
She slept by herself in the cot on Monday night 16th of August. I cried, makes me sad but she is sleeping well. Goes to sleep after a feed at around 9pm placed in cot, sleeps by herself may wake up and goes to sleep again. Wakes up at around 1am and then 4 am. Last night 18th of August (Thursday 19th august morning) woke up at 2.45am and 5.45am.
