Toby is in day care three days week. he loves it. He calls it "friends". he is happy and excited to go to "friends" but if you call it "school", no way, he's not going there! He started asking for friends. When we got here it was school holidays and there lots of kids around. he got to play with four girls every day (age 4-13), who absolutely doted on him. When they went back home he was very ad and asked for his "friends". Now he has friends at day care, and he didn't even cry when I dropped him off ... he just waved and said, "Bye mummy" ... and off he went. Boo too ... my baby is growing up.
The House - Bob is in Perth finishing off the house, we will move to Brisbane permanently, but we can't rent out the house without doing a few things, like install electricity to Mishali's room, put in a window in the loungeroom (it's presently a hole in the wall boarded up on the outside); get in an electrician to put up the chandeliers I love but will now not be able to enjoy : ((
Why the sudden move to Brisbane? I miss my mum and dad so much. I want my kids to grow up knowing them. We need family support with the kids if we are both to work, and we can't afford $4000 month in childcare ... so I now have inbuilt carers for the bubbles, and i am back to paying "board" ... lol I am 46 years of age next month and living with my mummy and daddy paying board.
It's sad leaving behind the house I loved so much, but there will be other houses. When you go through surrogacy for four years as we have done, one is left with zero dollars and big fat debts, so the time has come to tighten the proverbial belt.
Here are some more pics taken last week.
