Trip to emergency Monday when Buddha Baby fell off the bed (again) and face-butted our polished boards, resulting in a fat lip and blood nose. Doctor insisted no permanent damage but inspected Buddha Baby for bruises in case of abuse.

We went to the park today, the cut grass resulting in lots of little red dots all over Buddha Baby’s body. It appears I have a child with Allergies.

Buddha Baby’s sleep is still terribly interupted (he woke five times last night; I only know becasue I was curious and thought I would count), but more often than not, he will settle back down quickly. Course, that could be becasue I have still  been sleeping the second half of the night in bed with him. Needless to say, I’ve put a mattress on the floor of his room so we don’t have to risk cranial injury again.

My stepkids will be here in a week. Every one of their christmas presents was bought at a hifi and electricals superstore this evening. This makes things easier, if more expensive.

Buddha Baby and I have mouth/nipple thrush. It fucking hurts.

T. got a HUGE backpay today because his workplace hadn’t implemented 18 months worth of incremental payrises. It was almost two thousand dollars.

Our car was officially written off by the insurance company, turning out to be worth double what we spent on it. Yes, I made a profit from a car accident. I am wondering what we did to deserve these rare strokes of financial good luck.

But I am glad of them. Usually the universe kicks our butts.

    Alex and Budda Baby seem to be having late night play dates in their respective cribs. That sucks for us, eh?

    Glad the universe is at least, financially, taking care of you.

    Plenty of cash to bribe child services with, then. Although I probably shouldn’t joke. It was a joke, child services lurker…

    Hopefully *everything* will start running smoothly for a while.

    It reminds me of the time I totaled my car and the insurance agency guessed the mileage at 100,00ish because the odometer only read five digits. It actually had 200,000ish but I wasn’t going to tell them that!
