Kev and I had a night away by OURSELVES!!!! We divided the children into two groups of three. Lets ponder that thought for a moment should we. Haha so much thought went into who gets on better with who? Mum had Aaliyah and it was the first night that she was every away from me for a whole night. Therefore I wanted to make it as easy for Mum as I could. So Kyle, Trey and Aaliyah went with Mum. Dad (who lives with us) had Dallas, Zane and Bodhi. Plus we had an extra child here, our nephew Nathan was here, so Dad had him as well.
Trey in his wisdom, was confused as to why four were staying with Poppy Mal and only 3 children were staying with his Nana. So I explained to him about how 7 wasn't an even number, and it couldn't be divided into two groups equally. Then the smarty pants in a matter of seconds came up with a solution to this problem. He concluded that because my sister Stephanie is Kyle's age, so 'she's a kid too Mum" is at Nana's, then add her onto the 7 and that makes 8 and that is a number that is equal when you divide it by 2. I was blown away by his quick thinking. It truly does reassure me that he's going to be ok with Homeschooling and I have such a good feeling about it all.
Anyhoo: my weekend with Kev. We truly needed it. 2yrs have passed since we've been alone over night. So we took off Friday afternoon @ 4pm. Visited a mate of Kev's on our way past. Had a coffee with him and I fixed his computer. Then off to the Motel. It was an awesome deal. You pay $100 for a room and get $100 voucher to spend in their Al' Carte restaurant. So dinner was fab: we had entree's, two cocktails and a main each. It was awesome :)
So then we caught a cab to the cinema's to catch the 8pm showing of Avatar. It was sold out! So we bought our tickets for the 9.20pm. Played some computer games...hehe, hadn't done that together since we were both teenagers :) Then we took off for a walk down the esplanade. With perfect timing, we caught a fire twirling show, so that was very cool! Then took off again, to catch our movie. Avatar was fantastic!!! Like really good. Like I want to go live in Pandora! Loved it.
After the movie we walked down to the esplanade again. Bought some ice creams' and chocolate and went back to the room. By this time it was after 1am in the morning.
Next day we slept in, and went to Macca's for breakfast. did some window shopping and went home. So happy the kids were great for their grandparents :)
It did amazing for refreshing my state of mind and getting me back to being the best Mum and wife I can be. Also for reconnecting the relationship between Kev and myself. xx
