girls playing doctorsTHIS week I’m grateful for:

  • Meeting other bloggers: I went all the way to Radelaide just to have breakfast this week. Breakfast with some fabulous bloggers, I might add. This bloggy thing is better than journalism, I swear. I’d swap cocktails with Jason Donovan for breakfast with bloggers any day. Especially ones as lovely as these.
  • Princess Ella’s 4th birthday: We are back in birthday mode… again. It never stops at this end of the year. When Ella discovered her “party’’ would be with grandparents only tomorrow, she started crying. “I don’t want the nans and pops to come,’’ she said. I asked her why and she said: “I just want (insert teenage cousin’s name) to come.’’ A few quick calls and it seems now she’s having a “real party’’, complete with grandparents AND her cousin. Very grateful to her cousin.
  • An all clear at the dentist: Thankfully, when the girls had their checkups at the dentist yesterday, they were both given a big tick (or a sticker, at least) for good care of their baby teeth. Ella even got to ride in the chair. Although she was slightly underwhelmed. “It wasn’t very fun, Mum,’’ she said. “Why?’’ I asked. “It didn’t go to the ceiling.’’ Looks like a trip to the Gold Coast might be in order.

I’m joining with Maxabella Loves to share what I’m grateful for.

  1. This reminds me I have to get Miss T to the dentist. I keep forgetting.

    We are fortunate (or maybe I am deluded) that our girls birthdays are a day apart so lots of effort only once a year, not that I intend to throw one big party every year, tempting as that may be.

      Wow, Veronica! That IS close. The Bloke in The Shed has two nieces who were born the same day – a few years apart! How spooky is that? Organising presents all in one hit is a bit of a bonus, I must admit!

  2. She is seriously such a cutie…

    Yay for all clear at the dentist. I am grateful your post has,reminded we are overdue for dental checkups

      Glad it’s been useful, Deb. I really need to book an appointment for myself. I’m just waiting till breastfeeding is over before I even contemplate it! 🙂

      LOL! I think you might be right there, Caz. Although, I’m sure if I took her to Movie World or SeaWorld she’d be scared out of her wits at the rides! 🙂

      Thanks Lou. Was so nice to finally have the chance for a good chat, minus children crawling off us too! Really looking forward to Thursday. It can’t come quick enough! Ella is super excited to meet Bliss and “Holly’s friend” Bear! 🙂

    Hi Kel,

    Sounds like you had a great time with your bloggers meet up! So glad that you had fun, that is your daughter 4th Birthday and she gets to have her family/friends there for the day!
    Love the idea of having a “higher” ride in a chair….but without the dentist visit 🙂

  7. And now I have been reminded twice in one day I need to take my son to get his teeth checked – is the universe trying to tell me something?? 🙂

      Ooh, maybe it is a sign, Donna! LOL! 😉
      I should have taken Ella before now, but it just never seemed to happen. It was a good excuse with Holly needing her check up!
