To give Jenny a bit of a break Oscar and I are on a little holiday. The original plan was to go on a plane somewhere but that was working out way too expensive so instead we are just 25kms away in the city.
We are only away 3 nights but we seem to have more luggage than lady gaga. Jenny drove us into Pyrmont to where we are staying. This place is huge and there was about 30 people before us in the check in line. So I maneuvered our pram, suitcase, portacot and2 backpacks into the line with us for the long wait. It took ages to get to the front and the whole time Oscar wanted to be held. When we did get to the very front f the line Oscar said “Daddy I need to do a wee wee” so. Had to bail and go in search of the toilets.
After doing the biggest wee in the history of weeing we went back to the foyer and lined up again, thankfully the line was much shorter this time.
We loitered about in the apartment for a while before riding the monorail around the loop and heading to Coles to stock our kitchen.
We came back, are dinner, bathed the boy and put him to bed. Then I spent the evening wasting my life away with foxtel. I watched a docco about how umbrellas are made, it was dull.
At 3am Oscar awoke and called out to me, normally he just wants a quick hug and a sip of water. Not tonight!!!!! For the first time ever since Oscar was born he stayed awake for 2 and a half hours!!!! Coughing, calling out to me, crying, sipping water, hugging, calling out to me, coughing, crying …….. It was pretty painful I was exhausted. So at 5:30 he and me went off to sleep. At 7am he was up and ready for the day.
