Today we have been really busy, but have had a much calmer day than yesterday. Kobe had his usual two feeds during the night and settled really well each time, which was a great start to the day.
This morning we got a phone call from Chrish. Can't wait to see him next week when he comes down. We then went ten pin bowling with the school holiday program. Everyone was so excited to meet Kobe, and he was an angel sleeping the whole time which was great as we could enjoy bowling.
We then went to see Marlo (a naturopath) who wanted to give us all a treatment with her MORA machine. I call it her magic machine, and I really don't understand how it works, but know that it can tell what is working well in your body and what isn't (a very basic way of explaining it!), and she can then prescribe homeopathic drops and meds accordingly. It has helped Noah to settle down a lot over the past month, so we were all keen to give it a go - including Harri and Jay.
We all left with new drops to take. Supposedly Noah is testing better than I am! She says Noah has responded so well to the treatment she has been giving him. Harri was very excited about having a turn and getting new drops - and kept wanting more and more drops while we were there - even sneaking off up the hall with his own drops and giving some to himself!
When we got home we were happy to see that our heater had already been fixed which was a nice surprise. The Child Health Nurse then came for her first visit to see Kobe. She was a classic! She kept going on and on about him like we didn't know him and would say 'hey Aaron - you should see this', and would make him come over to check something out or to listen to his heart beat with a stethoscope, and kept saying what a team we were.
Aaron and I kept looking at each other and tried not to laugh as she was so excited and kept going on and on about the boys, and how in the old days we would be treated like Kings producing all these boys. She obviously loves her job and kids. She gave Noah and Kobe a kiss on the way out.
When she left we headed to Harvey Norman and bought a new washing machine. After going in there and thinking we knew what we wanted, we ended up buying something totally different! We now have a front load washing machine, and hopefully the salesman wasn't telling us good things about it, just so we would buy it. We were lucky that the guy who lives across the road was home and helped Aaron carry it inside.
So far the last day of holidays has been a good one. Of course it is now tea time and things can go downhill very fast from here, but fingers crossed we will have a calm night as well. Aaron keeps saying how fast these holidays have gone and how it is a bit of a blur. I think in some ways though he will be looking forward to getting back to school. It has been great timing having Kobe during the holidays. Hopefully next school holidays will be a little bit more relaxing than these ones have been :)
