Daddy Day Care Week 3

In the House Of Daddy Day Care Week Three there was a mixed week 🙂

Daddy Day Care Week 3 was so very busy that I have not had time to update how our week went. So with being Good Friday, and all the boys at home I have decided to take the time to sit this morning and reflect on how our week went.

It was a full on week, with many different situations arising that I was trying to step back from and let Daddy Day Care take care of. I think that I am the peace maker amongst them all because I do not like confrontations within our house.

Not sure if it is because I am a Mum and Daddy see things differently because lets face it he is a Man!! But there has been certain situations this week that I have had to take a back seat on and let Daddy Day Care work it out. Are you one of those Mum’s that like to help out and do anything and everything for others? I am what is consider a “Southey Personality” – from Paul Blackburn – so I am always putting my needs last and trying to do too much. Needless to say I have been exhausted this week.

Daddy Day Care has been very tired and CRANKY each morning so I am rushing around to try to help out before I leave for my course. I really should be gone way before 7.45 am each morning to make it my course by 8.30am but this week I have been leaving around 7.55 am – almost 8.00 am. Needless to say I have been late to my course.

Do You Have Times Like That In Your House? Where you are running around like a mad chook with your head cut off? I have to say that I have been feeling like I am being pulled into all directions.

I want to make sure my boys make it to school on time, have their bags packed, their school clothes on and eating their breakfast. Within all of this going on I am trying to keep the peace between all of the boys, and Daddy Day Care from being too stressed. Then Daddy gets even more upset because he knows I am going to be late for my course!!

Isn’t it funny how as a Mum I can have three different conversations, do at least three different task at once and try to sort out the house at the same time but Daddies can only do one thing at a time. That is the difference between a Man and Women 🙂 I suppose that is why opposites attract.

Needless to say I am looking forward to the four days break with today being Good Friday, tomorrow is Easter Sunday and then Easter Sunday. That will ease the tension in our Daddy Day Care for a short period of time. Next week will be Daddy Day Care Week 4 and I am thinking that it will full steam ahead because it is school holidays and we are having family staying in the house 🙂 Maybe next Week in Daddy Day Care House I will be the” Peace Army Corps Lady Officer” so much that I will book myself on a one way cruise out of here!! Do you feel like you have to be everywhere, help out in any way and put everyone needs before your own?

I wonder what Daddy Day Care thoughts were of the week?

Interesting to see how Men and Women think differently.

Thanks for sharing our experience with our Woody Boys in our Woody House where Daddy is the Mummy and Mummy is returning to studying 🙂

Until next week, Happy Easter and have a safe holiday. Take care over the week and driving safely.

Daddy Woody Was Mr Mum

On The Weekend David Was Mr Mum….

Over the weekend just gone David played Mr Mum….I was off at the Think and Grow Rich Event by Stuart Zadel in Brisbane, helping out behind the scenes.

It was a blast for me, and I really enjoyed the time out.

Not sure how David coped with five very active woody boys.

Lately I have been dealing with two teenagers, and their very active hormones. Combined with our third boy who is 11 year old….and very active over the top behavior is a recipe for disaster.

But this past weekend David got to see first hand what I have had to cope with. ITS no picnic and I have been at my wits end with all of them.

Interesting enough David coped better than I thought he would. I came home to a clean house, fresh flowers, heart sharped biscuits (for valentines Day) and five woody boys still alive 🙂

It was a very good break for me, to charge my batteries.

I sure missed my boys, especially their hugs and kisses, but did not miss their active fast going cheeky behavior.

Its funny what comes out of there mouths….

Here is a conversation (I will try to remember how it went down) with my 8 year old boy – Cameron

Cam “Mum, I am on the lookout for the secret on how to get our family to nice to each other again and act like a close family”.

Me – “Oh and where do you think you will find the Secret”.

Cam – “where is the nearest library to us now. Because they will have my answer in a book”.

Me – “Not sure if there is a library at Glass House Mountains, and will need to look to find where one is”.

Cam – “Caboolture is close enough and they have a library”

Me – “Will there is a book in the book shelf over there, Its Called “The Secret” and it might have what you are looking for?”

So….Cameron jumps up and gets the book off the Book Shelf. He asks me to read it to him after dinner because its actually what he was looking for – “Mum, Mum its called “The Secret”, so it must be a book about my answer.

After Dinner I snuggle down on the lounge with Baby Woody (kyle) in one arm, and Cameron in my other arm.

Kyle only hears the first few pages….Cameron listens until he gets very tired and asks to go to bed. But before he heads of to bed I finish the page I am on……Its where it says “The Law Responds To Your Thoughts, no Matter What They May Be”…..

I ask Cameron if he understands those words….Does he get what it means?

His gorgeous reply “Sure Mum I get it….IF I think about our family getting along it will happen. If I think about our family being nice it will be. It will happen and we will all be happy together”

HOW COOL IS THAT? MY EIGHT YEAR OLD GETS THE SECRET easier than any Adult can understand it, including me 🙂

How to be a kid again? How to have the faith, the acceptance and the belief that what will happen will happen because of thoughts…….

Maybe Daddy Woody Needs To play Mr Mum again!!!

To next time, how was your weekend? Hope you all had a good Valentines Day wherever you are.

One Mum trying to stay sane with raising five Woody Boys.

Trying to Stay Sane…..

Trying to Stay Sane this week…just before school Holidays hit.

After helping out at the Think and Grow rich event in Brisbane on the weekend, I am madly trying to catch up on work before school holidays hit!!

Time has gone quickly this year, and it amazes me to think that it is 1/2 way through the year already!!

I am trying to catch up with all my work before I fly down to Canberra next week….I am going to be seeing my younger brothers for the day as I have been accepted into personal coaching with Paul Blackburn teams, Personal Coaching for the mindset.

It is only a flying visit and is such a shame that it will not be longer…

Home Alone…..

That means Daddy Woody will once again be at home with the boys for just over a day without Mama Woody to give a helping hand!!!

Then it will be full steam ahead in our house with two weeks of school holidays….if you have kids I so know how you are feeling.

This weekend is also going to be time out for all of us. Its My birthday, which I did not realised had come up so soon until David told me yesterday!!

I am hoping to go to the beach with the whole family and relax on the sand/park while the boys have lots of fun.  Must remember to take the picnic basket with us this time:)

A few wines (hey I am not driving), and a few laughs with my family and it will be the best birthday ever.

So I am trying to Stay Sane just before the storm hits with two weeks school holidays.

What are you and your family going to be doing for the two weeks?

Keep on Smiling…it makes the day brighter
