Whats Happening?

Whats Happening with our Woody Boys?

Well….its school Christmas Holidays and I am having fun trying to stay really sane with all of them fighting. Its not just one fight…..it can be any five different fights at the one time 🙂


I was looking forward to spending time (quality time) with them all but as yet we are having fun trying to settle in to having them all home.

This happens every holidays. Its like that they need about a week to take time getting used to each other, testing the boundaries….pushing the limits. Teasing, chasing, and even hitting each other.  Really nasty behaviour until I hit the limit, and they can tell when I have had enough 🙂 They soon realise how much I can only take.

Looking Forward to Next Week

By next week it will be plan sailing. Until then I am taking very big deep breathes, lots of baths, reading books to escape the madness!!!

Wishing all mothers out there a safe happy Christmas break. Please send me a little pray and thought my way until the Woody boys are getting along again.

Gosh We really need to find a better way to co-exist in this house 🙂

Holiday Fun

Holiday Fun…..

I would have to say that the last two weeks have been the most boring holidays we have had to date.

No going swimming….No going to the beach, No going out and about.

WHY is that?

Well for our 101 excuses on why we had the most boring two weeks school holidays….

  1. Kyle broke his arm a little over three weeks ago and only got his cast off just a few days ago.

  2. The sand storm made for some interesting inside play time.

  3. We have our house on the market so I need to be here, cleaning it and getting it prepared for any potential buyers.

  4. Our two older boys went away for the first week. One to army cadets camp, the other to Grandma/Grandad, which left the younger three boys at home.  They get on better together with out the constant fighting of all five boys!!

  5. I felt to lazy to organise the three boys to get out the door.

  6. Loved the late morning sleep ins!!

  7. No need to keep to a time frame……No rushing around getting everyone out the door for the school bell (that was sheer bliss)

  8. To tired to worry about where to take them all so that they all enjoyed themselves.

  9. Need to chill out.

  10. Had to get to the hospital for our youngest to have his cast cut off. Which took three hours, because they had us sitting in the wrong waiting room 😦

  11. Not game enough to take three boys out for the day, because everywhere I could think of, Baby Woody might of hurt his arm!!

  12. Felt like it was time for the boys to learn to appreciate more out of life….with them having to find things to do around the house/backyard.

  13. Decided that I need to do some R and R, and made sure all three boys had quiet time in the afternoon.

  14. Just because I felt like doing nothing.

  15. Finally felt so very guilty for not doing anything for two weeks…..took them to see G Force at the Movies.

I have many other 101 reasons for having the most boring school holidays ever……but basically that would take my time to write it all down, and frankly who could be bothered to write that many, and who could be bothered to read that many!!

One thing I could say…..is G Force has now given my boys more imagination. They are keen to try and see how they can get their Guinea Pigs to become spy’s, and how they can go about making headsets for them to wear so that they can hear them speak……

OH NO, How can I stop that one!!!

Here’s hoping you all had a better fun filled holiday time for you and your family.

Promise boys, that I will make it up to you all next school Holidays.…I promise !!!

Love to you all


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
