It's been a while since I posted, the days just totally get away on me. We had a good trip up to Mackay, very long drive, but still pretty good. One of the pluses of our long trip was that we found the best parents room in Australia!! It's in one of the shopping centres in Rockhampton, it's brand spanking new so it is super clean, clean, clean. If you have kids then I'm sure you are aware of how many filthy parents rooms there are out there. Uck! But in addition to being new and clean it also has
a) mobiles hanging above each change table to try and help amuse your child while you are changing them
b)wipes are supplied!!! (although I'm sure this won't last forever)
c)in the seperate little rooms for feeding it has huge activities centres attatched to the walls to entertain your toddler while you feed the baby
d) it also has cages, oh sorry, play pens, set up with TV (on the wall) and little tables and chairs
And, also another thing which I guess won't last, it has free toys!!! Yes, little plastic frogs, which was just so handy as frogs happen to be the most favourite and bestest thing in this house at the moment.
Anyway I just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else finds themselves on the road up that way, looking for a nice, clean, safe place to change the babys' butt.
It's been a bit cold here the last week or so, with that nasty sneaky breeze hanging around. So yesterday when we went over to visit my sister we sat out in the yard for a bit and soaked up the sun. This is my little niece Abby. She's so cute.
Then we had a little trip to the park in the afternoon. Clary sat on the swing for ages watching the men doing the roadworks, he was completely taken with them. Eventually though, the excitement of it all was just too completely overwhelming for him and he had to have a little camp. Poor little sausage, he was just pooped.
It was a fantastic park with lots of cool stuff. It had this monorail type thing which ran on pedal power. Ruby, of course, wanted to go on it again and again and again. Which would have been OK if only the seats on it were a little bigger and the pedals a bit further away. It didn't seem to have been made for adults. Not the best picture here. Yes, if they could just tweak the design a little bit it would be the perfect work out for Mums at the park.
While we tried everything out, Clary just snoozed on, dreaming about trucks and diggers. And my sister gave him the bunny ears.
