Hatches, Milo and voices

Today's 3.....

1. Sitting down with 5 minutes to fill and opening last saturdays paper at what happened to be the 'hatches, catches and despatches'. What should jump out at me was the birth of the baby of a friend of a friend who i know has been trying for a baby for many years with several unsuccessful IVF attempts and miscarriages. How special. I bet they are over the moon. I have some idea how they must feel as i have spent 8 years of my life trying to fall pregnant and was declared 'infertile' by specialists..... (Hmmm - 3 kids later!!)

2. Lambton Park - sitting there watching Action Man in his first session of Milo Cricket (for 5 - 8year olds) at Lambton Park. I grew up in Lambton and know every inch of that park. I sat and looked around and could recall a fond or funny memory for everywhere i looked. Wow - blasts from the past can be cool sometimes eh...

3. Reading - I do reading in my sons kindergarten classroom each wednesday morning (when i am not called into work) and there is a gorgeous little boy who has not spoken a word ever since school started this year (he talks at home just not at school). He just looks at you with these huge chocolate brown eyes. Well something must have happened over the holidays because he actually read out loud to me today.... I was gobsmacked. He was terrified and kept shooting glances at me to see if i would laugh or something - i just played it cool and pretended i knew he would do it all along and he relaxed and read really well. Just amazing and lovely to experience...

Thanks for looking
luv jen

I was told at 19 that I may not be able to have children later..(4 pregnancies, 3 children).

Beloved is Lambton boy.

What an privilege to share this experience with the little one...

What a blessing to be there when he read out loud.

i cant be fairymary - that is Kathleen.

If you ask my kids they would probably say i am scarymary at the moment. Have lost the plot today on various kids - 'Mother of the Year' award must have got lost in the post!!!

And yes - it was very special to hear him speak.

Cyndy - how old is beloved?? maybe i know him? Did he go to Lambton High??

Beloved is 45, but he went to Broadmeadow High. It phased in co-ed in yr 8 in about 1974. His sister went to Lambton, and she's 46. His parents must have decided he needed to be kept away from the distractions of girls....He went to Lambton Public School, lived at Spruce St, North Lambton, and played soccer for the Lambton Jaffas. You seem a bit younger, Jen, but of course, I am younger than HIM..well a bit, anyway.

Cheers, Cyndy xoxo
