We are getting closer and closer to the UP Party in the Mummy To Five Household and we are slowly getting there in the party planning stages!
Here a follow on from Day 1 & 2
Day 3 — Wednesday is the day that we don’t have our nanny each week, and like karma we always seem to have lots more things planned/needed to do when she’s not here! Really need to re-evaluate that next week!! After dropping Master 5 at school, and doing the PMP program with them, I then met hubby at school with the other kids to then swap cars, for him to go to a (photo) shoot up the coast, while I took the other 4 kids to Spotlight again… What an adventure <insert sarcasm here!!
I was on the hunt for a wreath… for a surprise decoration that I’ll be sure to blog about next week, and I was able to finally find one, so I was happy… however then I needed to get some more balloons and this is where it went downhill!! Master 3 decided that he didnt want to sit in the trolley anymore, so he got out and wanted everything in the party section! From a cars pinata to wanting a bubble blowing machine (!!) and when I said NO, he decided that today would be the day he would test mummy’s patience while out in public! Surprisingly I didnt say anything, however insert the cue for Daddy to magically appear from his job that he had done, to take Master 3 and Miss 2, back to the car to watch Mister Maker! (When I say magically, I mean that he called me and I begged him to come back and meet me here before going to his next appointment!!)
So after Spotlight, we all headed to the local Sara Lee outlet, which is about 10 mins from Spotlight and thats all it took for Harry to go to sleep! So while Daddy stayed out at the cars, and changed carseats from the cruiser to the wagon, I went in with Annabelle to get the birthday cake, carrot cake, and banana cake.
Daddy then took the twinnies with him, while I took Miss 2 and Master Harry home for a sleep!
While they were sleeping I started cleaning and making my to do list for the following day!
When Daddy got home with the twins, I then got my shopping list and while trying to sneak out of the house childless to do grocery shopping ended up taking the boys with me to Aldi and then Woolworths!
Day 4 — After doing school PMP with Master 5, it was back home to spend most of the day at home to do cleaning and getting ready for Saturday. I got my menu plan all written out and ready for Saturday.
I did however make LCM Bar slice with my kids which I got the recipe from Liss at Frill In The Hills
