Where Does the Time Go? Mark 2

Well my boy turned 6 yesterday. I won't go into his birth story cause its long and arduous, let's just say it was 38 hours and quite stressful lol. Its funny how my kids seem to continue on in the same fashion as they come into the world. Sam is sometimes slow to start (did I mention he was 12 days overdue) but then he gets a burst on, its not always coordinated or graceful but he gets to the goal no worry lol.

He is so thirsty for knowledge, he loves to read and amazes me with how quickly he picks words up. He says maths and art are his favourite subjects and he doesn't really like sport and writing (sounds very much like me). He seems to be a real mix of both families appearance-wise, whereas Ethan is a little Phil and Audrey is a little me, Sam sits somewhere in the middle. He is a great big brother and is very protective of the other two, he loves to give them cuddles and most nights Ethan sleeps in Sam's bed for at least part of the night. He keeps talking about when he is 16, I can't even fathom that thought just yet 6 is spinning me out lol.
My good friend Narelle has tagged me! So here is my list

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

1. I was an exchange student to Kansas where I lived 20 minutes from the geographical centre of the USA.

2. I like being on committees, its my way of making a little difference

3. I have hyper-extensive thumbs so I can't click my fingers properly

4. I was named after some hippy singer chick from the 70's

5. I suck at netball but I'm pretty good at tennis

6. I am the eldest of 2 girls married to the youngest of 2 boys

7. I can't watch the bombers play on TV cause I get too fired up for the home setting, I either have to be there or just find out the result later.

I tag.... Celeste, Missty, Meg, Jodie, Wayne,

Ok so I don't have 7 yet will think about it some more.

Where Does the Time Go?

Well my little baby girl turned 2 on Thursday, I have no idea where those 2 years went. She was born at about 3:30am and I was in the shower the night before thinking this is what I was doing 2 years ago too, only I was on all 4's lol. Her birth was an interesting experience, the boys labours had been rather drawn out and I wasn't all that sure how things were progressing, whereas with Audrey I knew where she was the whole time (not that the midwives believed me). I told them I just needed my waters to break and she would be out, but regardless of this warning one left to have her tea break. Then when I told the only remaining midwife I needed to push she went to answer the phone. So I pushed my waters broke and Audrey's head was born. Phil left to get the midwife off the phone, I pushed again and she was born, the only person in attendance was my sister and she was standing at my head.

But that was over 2 years ago now, mind you she is still the same head first in without worrying what anyone else is doing or thinking lol. I love having a girl (I love my boys too obviously, but even though I married one I still don't understand males lol), I love how she is so interested in everything, how she speaks so clearly about what she wants, and how she snugs up and gives big sloppy kisses. Yes we have some terrible 2 tantrums but that comes with the territory (and she does them more for her father than me lol).

The only sadness I feel at this time is there is no more baby and will not be anymore babies. The maternal part of me needs to let go and enjoy the next stage of motherhood, I can't just keep having babies because I can, can I?
