Our first family trip to the movies...

Firstly i am back, yay... :-) I have been on night shift for 2 weeks now and finally feel like i am starting to find some sort of routine and the money is really starting to help, but that's for another time...

Today Aaron and i decided to take the kids off to the movies for the very first time... It has been raining non stop here for the past few weeks and the kids and i have a bad case of cabin fever so i was flicking through the paper when i saw Mickey Mouse Club House was at the movies.

The whole way there Regan kept saying "yay we are going to the big kids movies" but even as we got there i don't think she really knew what we were doing. So we lined up for tickets and as usual Aaron is telling me to stop taking photo's and come and help him, ergh, can men ever do anything by themselves. ;-)

So as a treat we let Regan get some lollies and pop corn. Yes that is the biggest bucket of popcorn i have ever seen but it was shared between Regan, Aaron and myself. Needless to say she had to carry the treats.

So we went in and sat down but we had no idea that they now have allocated seating, whoops!!! So we had to up and move seats just incase, now that tells you how long it's been since we have been to the movies.

We finally got our seats and settled in. Regan LOVED it... She was so well behaved and kept laughing and smiling the whole movie and Boston was an angel... He sat there a bit mesmerised and also a bit confused watching the big screen but then happily played with his giraffe, had a feed, then quietly fell asleep.
Please note the GIANT size coke my husband had... Despite this he still managed to fall asleep during the movie, he was awake for most of it though and only started snoozing in the last 10 minutes or so, so he did better than what he usually does.
All up it was a fantastic day and the kids loved it. I can't wait until the next child friendly movie.

Training is almost done!!!

"Hi this is Kimberly, your service specialist, how may i help you."

Haha, well this is what i will be saying about 80 times per shift 5 days a week as of next week. Yep, my training is finially finishing, i have 1 day of training left and then 1 week of buddying then i start my shift work.
I have really enjoyed training, using my mind again, meeting new people and talking to adults but i have missed my babies terribly.

I can now see that the push for me to return to work is one of the best things that has happened. For the 1st time in ages i have spare money in my bank account, i am appreciating my babies and the time i have with them so much more and it has done wonders for my sanity.
