A VLOG? No way!

So. This is what happens when you are left alone. At home. For 2 days straight with a sick kid and no sleep. The double chin, washed out complexion, strange insect bite and liver spot on my cheek are all real though. I promise to get better at these. Maybe.

You are most welcome.

    Oh my! Where to start!

    Your hair looks fabulous! Totally loving having a ‘voice’ to go with your blog! Give us more!!!

    And poor wee Harper and those teary eyes and red cheeks… I could just come over, sit on your Chair and hug her and read stories while you cook me a roast if you like?

    It gets better. I’m home with a sick 11 year old and he’s playing playstation.I even popped out for half an hour and left him at home on his own (does that make me a bad mother?)
    Hope things improve and everyone feels happier soon xx

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/01111027517594644037 Hello, I’m Marti. And I’m a red-head

    That was awesome and you made me laugh in that nervous kinda way because I’ve been dealing with the exact same thing as you except I’m now going on 4.5 days with 2 children that are sick and not sleeping. So I sooooo know where you are right now.

    Oh sweet heavens I cried and cried, watching that. From love, recognition, sadness, everything.

    Please vlog every day for the rest of your life. Thank you. I need it. I need your vlogs in the world.

    Oh my die.


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/06333858903359349225 Deb

    aww bubba. I can relate. thankfully I am kid cold free at the moment, but instead I am lumped with a sooky husband just out of hospital for tonsils and deviated septum surgery. yay me.

    oh, just as a side note, I had this game


    running in the background while I was watching this, and it added a very spooky soundtrack!!!

    great hair. next time you get a haircut, do a VLOG, much better at showing off the Do.

    love Harper’s ‘performance’, they just never do it on cue do they.

    so nice to see you. chin up, sick kids get better, and one day they’ll all go off to school {hooray!}

    You are a funny chicken….kids and sickness is enough to turn anyone to tears…apparently Harper just needs Mum and a computer xx

    LOVES IT! But ow! Look at her poor little cheeks. Poor little chicka. My almost 14yr old has been home all week sick, he is now driving me nuts with his “needs”. I need a tissue, I need a drink ,I need a panadol. Shutup already! I need a holiday… :)

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/03493854657141470059 Super Sarah

    Poor bubs, poor you… but hey, better bedraggled than bedazzled! Love the vlog and hate that your hair looks that good after so little sleep. I instagrammed my head the other morning because honestly, it was scaring my children!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/13151973819133926868 Mama of 2 boys

    Ohhh lady, it is SO good to see you again. I’m all for you doing your vlog thing as a regular… I miss those facial expressions, too funny!
    Harper is so CUTE, but boy did she look ‘bedraggled’! xoxo

  • Anonymous

    Nice to meet you! That was so fun – well, for us, anyway, poor little Harper, she looked so NOT well! And I hope you get some sleep soon, too!

    And I really can’t wait to see the next one! You were right with that!

    Loved your first vlog!! And as i’m sure mother’s everywhere have already told you – you’re not alone. Sometimes we just have crap weeks, but they pass and something wonderful always happens at the end. Sometimes tis a bit hard to remember that when it’s all shite.
    Hope you get some shut eye soon.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/17637050670133692926 Chantel

    Bloody good TV, my friend…although I don’t think my hosting career is under threat at this point…So cute and so funny and so lovely to hear your voice! Remember the lippy next time XX

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/11937511046069347576 edenland

    No way.

  • http://www.yamilainspire.blogspot.com/ Yamila

    Finally got round to see your first vlog. It was great my 4 year old son and I watched it and he said that he liked it. We also saw the vlog from your birthday and my son commented “That was funny” and he had a smirk on his face all throughout the piece/skit.
    You seem like a person that is really together and very nice. Have a nice weekend with your father and stepmother!

    I love this! Harper’s little face is gorgeous, the poor sick little thing! You do this really well, even with nothing planned, you rocked it! I would be umming and aahing all over the place! Do more!
