Mothers’ Day


That pretty much sums up Mothers’ Day.

#1Hubby was trying his best to appease me by finally clearing his work crap out of the garage, eleventybillion years after I first started whine-ask-demanding he do so.  

Which was great, except it was Mothers’ Day and I was left with all of the things inside.  There was no lounging around in pyjamas.  No coffee in bed.  Definitely no binge watching my favourite shows.

The kids, well they were mini assholes most of the day.  Not as in they are mini, but their assholeness was mini.  Like minor asshole status, as opposed to being epic assholes. 

Mini assholes antagonise each other and not me – but force and motion and physics and stuff means I was impacted by the assholedom, by having to parent it all before someone lost an eye.
The cat gifted me a spew.  Bless.  Bastard.

The kids were all OMG OMG OMG THE WORLD IS ENDING.  In a break from their assholeness, I took solace and enjoyment from their bonding over mutual disgust. 

Sadly, they got over the touching show of sibling unity in a flash, and were very quickly threatening to push each other into said cat spew.

So I cleaned up cat vomit on Mothers’ Day.  Living the dream.

The cat – who was my favourite pre-spew – then sat outside the kitchen window on top of the outdoor table, heaving and eyeballing me, as we had an intense stand off over whether or not he would produce a follow up gift for me.

Being a master multi-tasker, I continued the stand off while slaving over a lavish roast lunch that I was making for myself….which was to be served on said outdoor table – pending follow up spew.

So, yeah, that was Mothers’ Day.  My personal highlight being the cat vomit.

You may think I sound bitter and ungrateful, but I’m not.

This is possibly the best way it could have played out – because now I get a do-over.

After lovingly yelling my disappointment at them all before bed time, I am generously giving them the opportunity to improve on their efforts this weekend.

I’m markedly more excited for the do-over than I was for the original.  The vibe in the lead up is a mix of excitement (mine) and apprehension (theirs).


I’m a survivor – like Beyonce…but more Jeff Probst, really


OUTWIT…the mini-me’s into doing stuff for me since they’re home all day

OUTPLAY…my darlings, against each other, for who wins the prize as my favourite

OUTLAST…the sweet cherubs for 2 weeks of school holidays – home all day, every day


Survivor bosses:
No I did not ask permission to use your logo.  My bad.

Please do not treat this as my audition for the show…unless you’re going to do a parents’ version to see who can possibly outwit/outplay/outlast the other parents, resisting the urge to make the bed, pick up floor-towels, make healthy snacks, or contact their children…surviving guilt-free in a luxury hotel.

Spoiler alert :
It will be me.  I will win.  Mother guilt has no power over me when up against free room service and sleep-ins.



Anyway…enough of the super entertaining intro
On to the reason for my post:



I just wanted to let you all know that I survived the school holidays.

Phew, right?

I do have a TEEN, you know.

And twins who hate each other and piss themselves laughing at the mere suggestion of some mythical “twin bond”.

And the 2 girls are forever trying to convince each other to emancipate themselves – pushing each other to the limit of sanity and fighty-sister-ness, just hoping the other one will pack a bag and leave.

I know, I should really intervene more…but you guys…only 2 kids would mean just 1 taxi, 1 hotel room, more wine money in the budget….I feel like I could REALLY go on and on with this list, but that would make it look like I’ve spent far too much time musing over the pros and cons of 2 kids versus 3…

Also, my beloved boy has completely worked out that I am powerless against his charms.

He’s still my main ally, but he also plays me like a champion.


SHIT IS REAL IN THIS FAMILY, YOU GUYS.


So I get that you would be considering sending out the National Guard to search for my remains upon completion of 2 weeks of school holidays at home with them, given the circumstances.


Hooray / Huzzah / Jazz Hands and rainbows for the return of school….AMIRIGHT?!?!


Related – keep the celebrations down, parents, as some of us work at schools.

Some of us are ever super stupider and work at schools our kids attend.

THERE IS NO ESCAPE!


Today I had to make fresh toasted sandwiches for the Twin Tornado, as the weather is starting to cool down.

Mstr10 did a little pathetic cough to punctuate the weather situation and need for a hot lunch.

Miss10 just stared me down.

The teen of course put her hand out for money to buy something from the school canteen, since she is no longer in residence at our combined school/workplace.  Lest she miss out on something warm on this arctic day…


The balance of power has shifted.  While #1Hubby is blissfully ignorant/unaware, I am not.

I’m trying to work out if the ability to feed themselves and wipe their own bum’s is worth sacrificing the all powerful aura of wonder, trust and compliance that I once had.


It’s nearly Easter – grab your hot glue gun and get ready


It’s that time of year again – the annual Easter Hat Parade.

I can almost smell the scent of my hot glue gun sizzled skin in the air….again.


I’m going to start marking time via the various little scars:

       Oh yes, that was 2014 when we attempted a giant rabbit larger than his head…

       That one?  Well that little moon shaped scar comes courtesy of 2017 when we really
       embraced the GO BIG OR GO HOME philosophy…

       Ahh yes, my favourite, the one that looks a bit like Beyonce if you squint and do a
       handstand using just your left arm (shut up, I totally could…) – that was 2011 when
       I was fresh to the Easter Hat Parade farce and really thought I knew it all…


The reality is, the hats are almost always made or bought by parents.

The kids who make their own never win – my kids haven’t caught on to that fact yet.  

Each year they live in hope.

It’s not that they’re totally enthused by the whole idea of the festive joy that is an Easter themed event.

It’s just that they want the prize.  Not for the glory, but for the CHOCOLATE.

Now, I’m not a newbie.  This isn’t my first parade.  In fact, due to working at their school, I’m in charge of arranging class prizes and voting.  I know EXACTLY what the glory is worth.

$5 or less

Now that we know the less than impressive value – what is the price of said glory?

At my worst, it was around $30 per head.  With 3 children competing, I was out of pocket almost $100.  SO MANY sequins, ribbon, foam balls and rolls of packing tape…

Shudder.

One year, the price of fame was $3 per head – for a last minute Dollar Shop grab of whatever hadn’t already been claimed by other half-arsed parents.  It must’ve been a really hectic year all round, because the parade was full of the same lame cardboard bunny ears and rabbit hats, courtesy of the now very sales-happy and rolling in cash Dollar Shop.

Last year, I was down to just two (on account of Miss13 moving on to High School where they are way. too. cool to bother with such things).

But we were all a bit over it, and so we skipped it.  

Twas a blissful year, 2018.

This year, they’re back at it with a vengeance.

I don’t know why.  I don’t know which little bastards revved them up and got them all enthusiastic in their respective classes, but the Twin Tornado are out for blood the win, once again.

I have considered out-sourcing.  (Karen B – I’m looking at you.  You have a killer record of wins, and I’m not above begging, should I hot glue gun my digits together and be rendered utterly useless).

Now, to be clear, I’m not taking over and making their hats for them.  BUT HELLO – HOT GLUE GUN AND MISS10 – THE FAMILY SADIST.

Seriously?

I could make a mean profit taking bets on exactly how long it will take her to:

       a) accidentally singe her brother’s arm/hair/leg/eyeball

       b) accidentally set the very cheap and flammable curtain on fire

       c) accidentally poke her older sister in the backside and burn a hole through her very expensive school uniform.

       d) accidentally do all of the above – because she is my child, and we all know that I was an infamous pyromaniac
       in my early years (as briefly glossed over / owned on the interverse here and here).
So, the point is – it’s genetic.  And always an accident.  
Therefore, one of the tens of people reading this, think of me as I swear under my breath all weekend, supervising and trying REALLY HARD not to intervene re: the hot glue gun.
At least it will distract me from the fact that I’ve currently spent $23.75 for the Twin Tornado to have a shot at a $5 chocolate prize each.
And hopefully also distract my OCD tendencies (at least it’s not decorating the Christmas Tree….at least it’s not decorating the Christmas Tree – this shall be my OCD mantra) from taking over when Miss10 is gluing her jellybeans on and THEY AREN’T SYMMETRICAL….
All you mathematicians out there….how many bottles of vodka have I wasted on the Easter Hat Parade over the years?  

Minus the cost of just buying a $5 chocolate bunny each (and let’s be honest, I’d probably go the budget, oily, no-name brand for $3 each).

I reckon I’d still be in front….



Being my best self – I’m back

You guys!

You guys…

It has been a hot minute / year and a bit.

I’ve been off being the best me that I can be, and shit.


Firstly, there was a little hate from some who don’t recognise the life skill that I am most proud of – SARCASM.  After a few helpful messages suggesting I shouldn’t be allowed to have children because of how I’m so clearly not capable of looking after them….I gave them a virtual one finger salute, and got distracted by other shiny things instead of blogging.

To be honest, my first action was to reply saying “absolutely…what time can you come and get them?”

That did not appease the trolls.

I’m still not 100% convinced it wasn’t #1Nana trying to keep me on my toes with the swears on here.

Anywho – onwards and upwards…


So…to update you all on the comings and goings around these parts.

I have a teenager.  

Ugh and Argh and all other such eloquently worded statements that parents of teens universally commiserate with.

Miss13-going on 63, is about elevnteen foot tall now.  It is a struggle to do her hair, and I am now resorting to using a fetching Ikea stool that was once the potty stand for my Mister to reach and aim (purchased after far too many late night toilet breaks ending in suspiciously wet feet for yours truly…).

She’s going on 63 because she is a wise old woman who knows EV-ER-EE-THING – just ask her…  She’s full of wise and helpful advice to me on all things.  In fact, just yesterday we were driving through an area we don’t normally visit.  She saw an Aldi supermarket and stated that she always does her grocery shopping there, on account of how competitive and cheap they were.

Well fancy that – who knew she was a closet domestic goddess who budgets and goes grocery shopping?  I must’ve missed all of that while begging her to make her bed / get off the iDevices / pick up her floordrobe, and all manner of other domestic duties that clearly aren’t part of her grocery shopping focussed repertoire.

The Twin Tornado are still all tornado-ish, ranging between an F4 and F5 on most days.  I blame global warming.

Miss10 wants to be a Dentist, so I’m delighted someone will support our entire family.  She really just wants to have at her siblings’ mouths with sharp instruments – but SEMANTICS – I have a future Doctor in the house!

Mstr10 wants to be a Lego pro.  I’ve told him he can totally go for that, if he agrees to first master the art of tying his shoelaces without losing his shit.  He wasn’t keen to shake on it, but when I explained that nobody would take his Lego pro status seriously otherwise, he agreed.  Phew and fingers crossed.  What could possibly go wrong.

Anyway, best thing is – they are all feeding and bathing themselves, putting their own laundry away, and reading to themselves.  I feel like my job here is all but done (especially with the reading thing).  They’re also usually putting themselves to bed, because I am now OLD and I fall asleep before them a lot of the time.

Trolls – you hear that?  I DON’T EVEN BOTHER PATTING THEIR BACKS TO SLEEP ANYMORE…

Also trolls, to really excite you…I had to count back – using all my finger digits – to make sure I’d correctly stated the Twin Tornado’s age.  Are they 10?  Are they 11?  Who knows!

Anyway, clearly nailing the parenting still.

And also the wifing – #1Hubby is still going strong.  I still remind him just how lucky he is, on the regular.  I feel like it’s obvious and is one of those things that doesn’t need to be said, but far be it from me to miss the chance to remind him all the same.

Now that I’m almost done with the nurturing of offspring, I thought it was time for me to do something for me.



So I did a detox slash gut health program – Before you choke on your wine, I was far from being all my body is a temple….

I was more…wait, it’s only a month and I don’t have to exercise?  And I’m going to lose 10% – 15% of my body weight in that time?

SIGN. ME. UP.

For reals, because I am so lazy/allergic to exercise, I had to get someone to do the grunt work of clicking buttons to sign me up.

Low and behold – not all of these things are a hoax.  Sometimes, it really is as simple as it sounds.  

Pretty sure I’m being watched by all the Kardashian’s, because clearly I’m a threat now.

Anyway, it was so awesome for my insides and my outsides, and so quick and easy, that I signed up myself on the other side of the program.

People…I am now a bona fide business person.  For reals.  And – wait for it – part of that is being a MENTOR.

I KNOW – WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO BE MENTORED BY ME!??!?

Pearls of wisdom, daily.  I’m like the gift that keeps on giving – while improving gut health and losing weight in the space of a month.

It’s clearly a no brainer, and I will personally thank you all when I’m on the cover of Forbes and O Magazine for taking all the money off bazillionaire app developers and Rappers.

Listen, a girl has to work.  Nobody was throwing dollars at me to write my words of wisdom, as enjoyed by tens of internet goers over the years.  So here it is, something else I’ve enjoyed, that’s worked for me.

It’s a little bit of shameless self-promotion, I know, – but if any of you have heard of the Healthy Living / Ph@tt program – you’ll know why I’m bragging!

And I’m saving for Dental school, remember.

Clickety-click if you want to know more.  Or if you just want to say hi.  Clearly I’m trying to fund a fancy new wardrobe, on account of my new slim-lined self.  #1Hubby is terrified I’m  mass purchasing bikinis via Facebook.  I told him I would only do such a thing if he agreed to a matching Mankini, since he’s also cutting a sharper figure thanks to having no choice but to support me and get with the month-long program.

So it’s been a crazy 18-months up in here.

I’ve kept them all alive and – dare I say – thriving.

I’ve improved myself.

But I’m still the same foul mouthed sarcastic delight that I’ve always been!

I’ve missed ranting and raving to you guys.

Stay tuned for more updates on Lego-gate (where I attempt to either Tiger-parent Mstr10 into Lego stardom, or covertly crush his dreams and distract him with a slightly more attainable career goal).

Everything You Need To Know About 3D Ultrasound

3D ultrasound is a common term most of us have come across to, mostly related to pregnancies. It is a medical procedure to get images within any vital organs of a body using ultrasound techniques. 3D ultrasound is specifically used in cardiac, fetal and trans-rectal applications.

An ultrasound technique uses sound waves to give pictures to the doctor about our vital organs. It is regarded as one of the safest and harmless wave techniques to get images from inside our body, as compared to X-Rays or other radioactive rays used for medical purposes. 3D ultrasound might also be known as 4D ultrasound as it gives a real life or 3D images on the screen.

The reason why 3d 4d ultrasound fort walton beach techniques are preferred even by doctors is that it gives an accurate and simple image of what the doctor seeks to see or understand. Though there might be some risks of heating up of tissues within our body due to transmission of sound waves, there hasn’t yet been any reported damage of doing a 3D ultrasound. So people who are over thinking of going through this test, then we assure you that it’s totally harmless.

There are several uses and applications of 3D ultrasound, but we are going to discuss about its application during pregnancies and also for cardiology, as they are the common reasons why ultrasound is prescribed.

During Pregnancies

Since 3D ultrasound is one the safest technique for inspection within our body, it is used during pregnancies to check the condition of the fetus and also its gradual growth. There used to be quite a bit of difficulty in inspecting or understanding the fetus growth as it moves constantly and has a high heart rate, but this technique captures several pictures at the same time and then collaborates all those images to produce one image on the screen. This is uniquely fast as it can even produce images of the moving fetus. Even in case of emergencies, doctors can quickly check the condition of the fetus and take appropriate actions accordingly.
