Journal Entry for August 31st 2000

Home Movies!
I'm writing this entry just before cutting the CD for August, which includes loads of movies from last Christmas and other stuff.  But there's loads of footage of Ian which is very recent, plus Danny's Firsts--which I'm very excited about!  I am so glad to see Danny swimming like a little fish.  When he was first born and we took him in the swimming pool most Saturdays I had hopes he'd never know fear of the water.   But he got to a certain age and definitely was.  But now, looking back, all those sessions in the pool must have played some part.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy the footage of our UnderWater Swimming Boy as much as I do.

Journal Entry for August 16, 2000

I was walking home from work the other day and as I got to our street I came upon an old lady sorta limping as she carried her bag on one shoulder and some shopping in the other hand. I asked her if I could help by carrying anything for her. She said no thanks, he house was just ahead. I said okay & Merry Christmas.

This little encounter reminded me of something that I learned by example from my Dad (instead of learning it by someone telling me, he just got on with doing it, probably unaware that he was teaching me anything at all).

Journal Entry for August 11, 2000

Family of Five!
We're cheering to have our bed back again.  Usually when I hear of parents with their children/baby in bed with them I grumble to myself and think, "not a good idea!"  But now I'm humbled because we've choose the same thing this time.   But we decided it was time to reclaim our "marital bed" Ha!  We were psyched up for many nights of Ian screaming in protest before he "learned" but it was gracefully quick and easy.  Only one night of sleeplessness.  He's sleeping great.  Last night he fussed until midnight, but then slept til 6am.   After a quick feed Lucy and he were back to sleep (I never even woke up) until a civilized hour.

Journal Entry for August 15th, 1999

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a great weekend.  Thought it would be worth writing a bit on it.

Lucy outdid herself by actually surprising me!  It was Sunday evening and she very subltely suggested we wait til the boys are in bed and then have a "take-out" for our tea.  When I asked what she had in mind she was mysteriously vague, promising I'd approve.  Anyway, she did surprise me when she returned with our Chinese food because she brought Tim and Ania with her!   Just the same morning I came very close to saying to them, "when can we get together again, seems like ages since we've hung out together" but I didn't.  Lucy said to me afterward that she was thinking, "Come on, let's do something for Kevin's birthday for a change.  What would he like to do more than anything (answer:  Have some friends around to visit).  And who would he choose to have come over if he could choose anyone at all (answer:  Tim and Ania).  It was so nice to eat together and talk and laugh with them.   Hoping to do a holiday together with them sometime.

Other things that made the weekend nice was:
