So we drove all night from Townsville to Dalby and made it in one safe piece. It took 19 hours. Lots of stops. And lots of DVDs to get us here.
DD and DS watched Giggle and Hoot, Playschool, Toy Story and Monsters Vs Aliens.
DS fell asleep at 8ish and DD conked out at 11. At around 1 we stopped for DH to go to the toilet and DS stirred in his car seat, so I jumped in the back and fed him leaning over the car seat until he fell asleep again. DH thought it was hilarious, I thought it was so much easier then Bottlefeeding. NIP to the extreme!
We arrived at lunchtime and we were all extremely tired. For DH and the toddler that meant straight to bed, but the baby was overtired and only slept one sleep cycle.
3 days into our trip though and apart from being woken by a rooster and waking with a fever at 11 last night he is sleeping longer and better then ever. Although we’ve just passed the WW thunder cloud so that might have something to do with it.
The kids did well for Christmas, with some new toys and lots from garage sales in top condition. DD has been enjoying the pool immensely.
We’ve been watching very minimal TV and doing lots of relaxing and getting lots of much needed rest.
And I’ve been thinking about the new year and what it may bring. I’ve been thinking about next Christmas with a 18 month old and a 3 year old and how fun that will be.
Good times ahead. Truly. With less then a month until my son’s 1st birthday, things really haven’t been better.
