Basketball Star!

My oldest is a Baskeball Star!! He has just played his 3rd game and he owns the court! He is a gun already and is going to go places. He totally loves it and you can normally find him outside playing basketball either by himself or with his dad, even when its freezing! I'm so proud of him and just wanted to shout it out to everyone! I love my kids, they are the shining light of my life XO :)

What can I say about Life..... its fast, never stopping, over far too quickly, full of hope, dreams, laughter, happiness, tears, sadness, so many things. You have to enjoy whilst you have it as its over all to quickly.
I watch each day as my kids grow up so fast before my eyes. Where does the time go?? They have become so independent, even the little one. I remember when they were infants and needed me for everything. But then something happens and you realise that no matter how old you are you always need your mum.  Mums are the greatest and even though it may  not seem like it we are so appreciated, needed and loved.

To all you fantastic mums out there you are doing a wonderful job. It may have it's ups and downs, but at the end of the day it's the most rewarding job there is and I wouldn't change it for anything. Enjoy life to the fullest and any time that your kids want to spend with you is a blessing. Have fun and keep smiling :)

I admit it, I'm not the greatest at........

Hi everyone,

I am writing this blog for The Biz Mums Blogging Carnival.  It's part of Motivating Mum's - a fantastic group that supports & gives advice to mums in business. This month's topic is: I admit it, I'm crap at...

When I saw this I chuckled to myself. For me personally I think there are a few things that I can finish this sentence with, even though those around me don't always agree. For me I admit I'm crap at housework! Not that my house is a pigsty, well not in other people's eyes anyway. You always see things that others don't! I find it so hard to juggle the kids, their activities, school, cooking, ironing, washing, my business needs, my minimal time for me and the housework. So something has to give and it's normally the housework. The everyday decluttering, picking up toys, cleaning up after meals and general tidying up gets done. But when it comes to the whole house being dusted, vaccumed and mopped, it gets put on the to do list for another day and another day and another day.  Luckily for me I get to a point where I can't stand it anymore and I do it, normally when the kids are in bed, like everything else, as I'm sure all you WAHM can relate to! Or else, my fantastic hubby chips in and does it. He is the main one that cleans the toilets, which is quiet frequently with 2 boys in the house! Oh I'm so lucky!

As mums we always put so much pressure on ourselves to be the best at everything. Our needs and wants don't come out much, especially when the kids are involved. Even while I'm trying to write this at 11pm at night, my youngest has come out and only wants me, Dad won't do! So I must finish off now, but my final word is this. We may think that we are not the greatest at a lot of things, but we are all fantastic mum's trying our best on a daily basis. As long as your children are happy and healthy and know that they are loved, that is all that matters when you are a mum.

Don't forget to visit the amazing support network that I am linking this to and see their Blogging Carnival  Thanks for visiting and reading. Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to have a chat!
Have a great day.

New YouTube video

Hi everyone.

I've been busy changing and adding things tonight. Ready for the hills (as my mum would say!) with my FB welcome page, but so tired just leaving it for now.  However, I did create a YouTube video which I'm happy with. You can view it by clicking on the link below. Enjoy :)

Ahh enjoying relaxing under the heater with the sun shining through the window. Watching the kids play the Wii, they LOVE it!! Going out into the cold soon to hang out the first load of washing for today. Was -0.8 C this morning when I got up with my early birds. It got to -1.9 C! Soooo cold! Going to be a nice day though :)

School holidays are nearly over. Back to the madness of clock watching and running everywhere. Going to miss my big school boy, he makes me laugh. He is interested in everything and always asking questions. He has been asking alot about things he sees in the paper, esp things to do with the government. I went and did my tax the other day and he asked if I was going to see Julia Gillard! Then when I said no, he asked why not, when it was her that I was paying the money to! Ha Ha! I couldn't stop laughing! :)

Well must be going. I can hear the washing machine has nearly finished. I hope you all have a great day.
Enjoy :)
