They know….

I kept forgetting to tell the ex to let me know when he planned to tell the boys about the baby….today on our way home from IKEA (love IKEA – spent too much but got most the things on my list – half way through assembling but thought he neighbours might not take too kindly to excessive banging at this time of night)….anyway drifted off topic (so not like me lol)…anyway on the way home Owen for some reason we got to talking about what the boys would be when they grew up. I think it started as a joke when I asked Brett if he was going to be a race car driver (answer was yes btw). Owen told me he was going to be a Tram driver (but only this way not the other way lol?!). So then he says that he won’t live with me any more cause he will be all grown up like Daddy. (vague recollections of talking about people growing up and moving out of home because of other things not so long ago). So I asked was he going to live alone or with someone. He is going to live with another boy not a girl (girl germs already methinks?)! Then he tells me he isn’t going to have a baby. Now that struck me as a little bit odd as not so long ago he was determined to be a Mummy! So I ask why not and he says that ‘boys don’t get babies in their tummy’s only girls’ ahh ok that I understand. But something seemed a little off so I asked if he knew anyone who was going to have a baby and he says yes Kelly. And so it all started to come out! He knows that the baby is Kellys baby and Daddy’s baby but he still doesn’t want to have a baby – not a big issue as lots of kids say that but a big turnaround for him. Still I’m betting it may have been a big shock for him to be told that (it seems he was told yesterday at Daddy’s house – by Kelly ,….yes I would have thought it his job to explain that or mine but we won’t go there)…..Neither of them seem terribly wrapt in the idea so will just keep an eye on it. Hard to get them excited about the prospect of a new little brother or sister given that it isn’t my baby…not feeling sad really just concerned for their feelings.

now did i mention they were GREAT at ikea we had a really good day (pity we forgot to go to the pead AGAIN), we looked and shopped and had lunch then looked then the kids went into the supervised play area for the first time! one hour in ikea with just me and corey to grab everything from our list and get through the checkout. left it in the loading bay with ikea staff while I picked up kids and then came back for stuff…lots of stuff! Love their system of matching stamps on the kids hands and mine so that no one else can pick them up too! I love that my kids Love IKEA too – although mostly I love it better on my own lol!

well its late again and I’m waffling again…

Corey still only nearly walking – if he would be brave and stand up more often the walking would just happen! tell me a boy who can bounce up and down standing can’t walk/stand – he just needs to work up some more confidence!

oh and one last comment – would you believe that it is not yet the end of January and we at top50 have completely BOOKED our monthly competition/cybercrop sponsorships for the rest of 2007! wow! how awesome is that!
