You know it's going to be an interesting day when the first thing you hear is "Awake Mum?" at 6am.
No I am NOT awake thankyou.
No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't pretend I was asleep. Which was probably something to do with the fact that Braeden was jumping on my head telling me to "Awake Mum, Awake Mum".
Ryley, upon hearing that the household was up, thought it best if he got up too. I encouraged him to snuggle in with me in the faint hope that he would fall back asleep (Braeden was playing with his toys by now after giving up on me), but no, this wasn't to be.
As I was lifting Ryley up on the bed, I thought his belly felt very smooth.
It took me but a second to realise that OH MY GOODNESS, the Mic-key button wasn't in his tummy.
As I pulled up his top I could see that the button had been out for a while because the hole had started to close over.
Somehow, while causing Ryley huge amounts of pain and discomfort, I managed to shove the damn thing back in, therefore saving us a trip to the RCH so they could put it back in under GA.
Today I also decided to start my christmas shopping.
For those that don't know me as well, I often claim to NOT be a people person.
That is in fact, very true.
I despise large crowds and avoid them if I can.
I just don't have the patience.
I tolerate the crowds at christmas time, only because I enjoy buying gifts for people. Though sometimes, even that isn't enough.
It seems that at christmas time, everyone is in a bad mood when shopping. There is pushing, there is shoving, there is a general disregard for other human beings.
As tolerant and patient as I was, I just got sick of it. I abandoned my christmas shopping half way through and thought 'Feck it, I am going home and shopping online'.
This was nothing to do with the fact that I had started feeling that I was really running behind on the whole christmas shopping thing too. There was SO many empty shelves.
And I thought I was being really organised by starting now.
One sparkling glass of champers later and I think I will start browsing the shops online.
The boys are all happy watching the cricket (oh how boring) and eating chips.
So I am going to enjoy the serenity and see how much money I can spend!
