Happy 10th Birthday

Happy Birthday Master Corb..........

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

7, 6, 5, 4.....................

Its down to the final days now till the big number 10 and quite frankly I'm sick of hearing about it!!!
I know I should count my blessings that Master Corb can talk but man he is so over opinionated with an answer or question for everything it drives me insane sometimes.
Anyway 4 days to go now so I've been told.  And a busy 4 days  at the end of term 3 they are.  The Myross Bush School Production is tomorrow.  Can't wait to see the fantastic performance the dance group is going to put on.  Master Corb is of course one of the hip hop dance group performers(???) Not too sure how that's going to go but he has assured me he is good (???).

One of the teachers at the school said to me last week that one of the things he finds awesome about Master Corb is his attitude about himself and how he doesn't view himself as any different to anyone else.  There was no doubt or reason in his mind that he couldn't be a hip hop dancer for the production, he wanted to try out to be a dancer so he did, he got put in and its as simple as that to him. Personally I secretly hope he doesn't look like an ass but that's my issue to deal with. 

Watch this space - I will try and get some footage.

The Countdown is on...

Master Corb is counting down to the big double digit birthday, only 2 weeks to go......

Oooh time goes so quick.  When I first started Advanced Biomechanical Rehabilitation and I saw with my own eyes how this wonderful approach could do what it claims, ie "rehabilitate", I was very optimistic and I firmly believed that Master Corb would walk independantly by the time he was 10 years old - well we are running out of time..... :(

How long do goldfish really live?

We had quite a few goldfish pets when we were growing up, with the popular 70's and 80's names of George and Mildred and of course Bo and Luke but if my memory serves me correct none of our goldfish lived for more than a couple of months.

This is Miss Livs goldfish Stella. We have had it for 2 years and 9 months so it is about 3 years old!!
Its a beautiful goldfish with a  massive long floaty tail but I can not believe it has lived so long.  There is no form of oxygen in the water and nor has there ever been, her bowl is quite boring with just red stones and a tunnel thing, sometimes the bowl is quite green, now and again we forget to feed her and sometimes she floats on the top on her side for a few days and I think it will be time to flush her away but she comes right and defies the odds and lives on...  I think we all could learn a big lesson from Stella the Goldfish....

Teenagers - Grr!!

I've decided I hate being a mother of a moody teenage girl!!! Time to get the most excellent parenting books out to remind myself that she is simply not normal at the moment and hopefully one day it will pass!!!

If you are struggling with your teenagers too you have got to read these books!!!


Revised & updated edition of Before Your Teenagers Drive You Crazy, Read This! - complete with new content including advice on using internet and wireless devices wisely.

Does your teenager sometimes leave you feeling so far out of your depth your head hurts? Has your teenage son lost the gift of speech? Does your teenage daughter blame you for everything, including global warming? Ever found yourself being frowned at, scowled at, or just plain screamed at for no good reason? Welcome to the teenage years - you are not alone. Nigel Latta has worked extensively with teenagers, and has seen every kind of kid, family, and problem you could possibly imagine - and many you probably couldn't. In this entertaining, informative, and practical book, he shares all the secrets of surviving the teenage years alive and with sanity intact. This book shows you what to do when you don't know what to do, using the same bombproof frameworks, basic principles and simple plans he would use if he saw your family.


Nigel Latta has drawn on his extensive experience in family therapy and working with the country's most difficult teenagers to write the book that will save the sanity of parents everywhere.

Once you've negotiated the terrors of toddlerdom and the perils of primary school you think you've got a pretty good handle on this parenting thing - then along comes Mother Nature with her horrible hormones and suddenly you're so far behind square one you're starting to wonder if this raging bundle of contradictions screaming at you was switched in the night by evil aliens.

With his now trademark humour and pragmatic common sense approach, Nigel debunks the politically correct nightmare of perfect parenting and argues for sanity first - yours - and reclaiming the ground parents have lost in the great 'I'm my child's best friend' debacle.
