Bad mom

Last week I told you about Connor slamming his finger in the car door right? Well on Friday we went to Ant & Kate's for a braai and Connor fell off little Tom's bike & scratched his face on their tar driveway! Shame he screamed when it first happened, but the funny thing was after a few seconds, he was fine!! Even the Debbo's said they can't believe how brave our little boy is! I obviously feel like the worst mom ever letting this happen to him, but I guess boys will be boys!?

Then to add to me being the worst mom ever, I heard Connor playing in my car yesterday (hooting the horn) so thought I will just finish what i am doing, then will go and put him down to nap (knowing he's quite happy playing in the car). Not even 5 minutes later, I go to look for him & can't find him anywhere. I looked at the back of my car, but couldn't see his head so thought he wasn't in there. In panic mode, i call Anna to ask if she's seen him & she said she thought he was in the car. Back to the car we go and look what we found:

He'd obviously decided he's way too tired, so he'll just have a cat nap in the back of mom's car. Note how he even put his seatbelt on too - man he's precious!

Anyways, on to another topic (feel bad enough already he he he). I think I may have ovulated over the weekend & just hope we managed to get it right!!! Please hold fingers for me.

Our building took a bit of a horrible turn over the weekend. Due to the guys trying to level out the 'bottom garden', our retainer wall dropped around 1m!!! So we now have to first rebuild the retainer wall (on a stronger foundation) before we can carry on with the building. It's a bit of a set back, but luckily we aren't in too much of a rush to get it done!

Frank got his Bakkie, and he's really happy with it, although it does take a bit of getting used to as it's by no means the Audi! It's still really comfy to drive & Connor loves cruising around in the bakkie!

It's only 24 sleeps until we go see the family in Dec - man i can't wait any more!!!

Well I guess a lil update would be nice??
We are into our 9th month now of ttc, and honestly, i am getting tired of it! I am sort of making peace with having only one child & you know what, it's not that bad!
I know it's very negative thinking, but i guess the ttc gets to you after a while. I have dreamed of having a little girl for so long, and I just wish it would happen already!
Ok enough of the soppy stuff. I am not on Clomid any more & decided to do a cycle of soy. We fell pg with Connor on Soy, so lets hope it does the trick this time around.
If nothing, we will be giving it a break until next year!

Shame yesterday my little prince slammed his finger in the car door. It was so so sore & got an instant red bruise which i have never seen before.

We also had a test drive in Frank's new car (which he's getting this Thurs) and I must say, it's very comfortable for a bakkie! I will put some pics up as soon as I get some :)

I haven't posted any pics recently of my little man, so here's a few i thought i would share :

Just being cute:

Happy happy birthday Babe, I hope your day is awesome and we can't wait to see you later ;)

We love you very much.

Thank goodness

You know it's not every day that we get to thank our lucky stars, but that's exactly what I was doing on Monday the 26th October!!
Frank was in an accident, where a car came off the top highway, (at spaghetti junction) it rolled down the embankment and crashed straight into Frank!!!
All I can say is thank goodness for Audi - it's the second time this type of car has saved him! He walked away a bit stiff, and a bit of whiplash, but no serious injuries!!
The car has since been written off & we are in the process of buying a new car. We're looking at getting a Toyota bakkie.
Here's some pics of our car:
