When we exchanged rings, we hoped our family of two would grow.
It has, into a family of 4. We're just split in half.
Two of us walk the Earth while two of us fly in Heaven.

YES!

Today, a mate tagged me in a comment on a post. The post was about recognition certificates for babies born under 20wks gestation and/or 400g birth weight.

YES!!!!!!! A step in the right direction! It's not a birth certificate. My baby girl won't have an official record of her birth recorded like her little brother's birth in the collection at Queensland Births Deaths & Marriages. She WILL have her name and date of birth on file and a certificate will be issued with her details on it. It will be issued by Queensland BD&M. And I will be one happy Mama.

Until the day when every single pregnancy is issued a birth certificate -regardless of gestational age at birth or at death- this will do.

My baby girl turns six this year. She's getting her Queensland certificate!





End of October

We don't do halloween here.

My husband's post sums it all up.

It's not harvest time in the southern hemisphere, it's spring time. A harvest time pagan celebration doesn't work.

We spend all our lives telling kids not to talk to strangers. All of a sudden it's ok to go to a stranger and accept sweets from them?

With all the craziness in the world with I S/ I S I L and plenty of nations wanting to stop such atrocities, all of a sudden its ok to dress up and personify and embody evil/grotesque things?


Uh, no. No halloween here. If you knock on our door, you'll be told to go away.

InstaFriday

It's insta time again. I'm @MamaJillaroo. All shots taken on my phone. Minimal editing. Not a lot of creative captioning here. Follow along!
Missed church, slept through all my alarms, headache. Woke up, got ready, put sheets in the wash, and made brunch (leftover bakes beans, potato bake, and a #RaisinBranSpiceCake muffin). Watching Songs of Praise on ABC and singing along. Boom, church! #SundayMorningWorship
My latest order arrived, and inside was my new #CTMH apron! You bet I rifled through the box and put my apron on straight away! Just in time for #ArtisticAdventure this weekend!
My supplies arrived! Claire, your workshop kit is here and waiting for you!

He found me! I looked all weekend and didn't find a Sticky Boy anywhere. During gala dinner dancing, I took my shoes off and set them on a chair. I later saw a US head office lady standing near my chair and she disappeared. I went to get my shoes and bag, and there was a huge StickyBoy! I got one in my shoe! I am so excited!!!!!! #CreatingwithKaraDavies #ArtisticAdventure #CTMH #Convention #Convention2014 #GalaDinner

Super fun morning in my studio with the fabulous Miss Claire! From start to finish, in 2 hours, she made twelve (yes, 12!) Christmas cards from scratch. From scratch! Cutting, trimming, Cuttlebug embossing, stamping, and final assembly, she did it herself. Well done Claire!


That was my week.
