To laugh- or cry ?

Saturday, March 15, 2008


Yesterday was my fortnightly trip to the closest big town (1 hr away). What started as a fun trip to do birthday shopping & groceries soon turned out into a circus. I should have known when Zai hopped off the bus on Thursday with a temperature that everything wouldn't going to plan. As this continued all night I decided to keep him home. Since this was my last chance to go to town before Monday ( Ellie's birthday) I still decided to go - just with all 4 kids in tow.

Unfortunately about 5km before we got there Ellie decided to vomit all over her dress - and I mean all over it! I had also forgotten to bring a change of clothes for her, so Ellie had to wear Zai's shirt ( lucky he was there) into the shops & Zai went shirtless - yes the ultimate feral family look!

Birthday shopping with 4 kids isn't my idea of fun. I thought Ellie could help me pick out her pressie - well she helped, but so did Zai, & Eli & Jud. Finally I purchased a pressie I thought she would like, although she says she doesn't want it - oh well, mum know nothing!

When we got home the kids made a mud puddle in the yard & you can see what state Eli was in - oh & this was only 10 mins before our dinner guests arrived( at least they are very patient people).
