Please take the time to read.

Ann Marie just left after a nice vist with her and her 1 year old daughter Sienna ( beautiful little red head). Boy did she have a Saturday! It has come to my attention that some rather unhelpful comments have been left on the blog. First off everyone in Adelaide knows you don't want to go to RAH because of the clientele they receive (mostly alcoholics and drug addicts) on any given night the bays are filled with people sleeping it off with police guards sitting near by reading books. The doctors and nurses are great! Even the orderlies are talkative and friendly.

That being said I do make comments about my daughter Rose because at that moment that is how I am feeling. I am on bed rest and this is my only contact with the outside world. I love my daughter and unborn baby more then life its self and I would be willing to die for either of them. My little one Rose is a well adjusted 4 year old who likes to push her limits (hello she's 4). She is also apart of the gifted and talented program and will be starting 1st grade 2 weeks after she turns five so she is smarter then the adverage bear. Which if you are a mother of a G and T you know they posse their own set of difficulties. They can speak and manipulate like a child 4 or 5 years old then their chronological age and yet have the social skills of child much younger leaving their emotional state somewhere in between. Rose's father and I love each other a lot and have been through 6 major moves, 3 miscarriages and put each other through college not to mention the medical problems that have plagued us of late. We work as a team and have in the past week resolved our daughters behavior problem. We are not abusive but firm and loving.

As for my mental state. Everyone has their good and bad days. When you are told you have to pay more money then you have in the bank to pay for a procedure you have to have you have a bad day. I am a big believer in prayer. God and my husband and daughter and even this tiny little person living in me help me everyday. I have strength because of them but that doesn't mean I don't get down and I have a right to complain as much as I want because this is my blog and I need an outlet its not like I can go out to coffee with my girlfriends and have good cry. This is my sanctuary my release. My time to say what I want with out judgment. I don't mind comments being left on the blog its your rights too. But I have as of today turned on the right not to publish comments I don't see helpful or respectful of me or my family.

If you have been lurking and recently left a comment that was not published don't feel I have in anyway disrespected you. I appreciate people coming out of the woodwork! I would just hope you would take the time to read the whole blog and not just take my recent body of work as my life. I have been very sick for nearly 3 weeks and so my blog will reflect my current situation.

Have a sense of humor! The art of never making a mistake is crucial to motherhood. To be effective and to gain the respect she needs to function, a mother must have her children believe she has never engaged in sex, never made a bad decision, never caused her own mother a moment's anxiety, and was never a child.

Excellent blog entry, darlin'. Take the high road. You've got enough to worry about.

But, you know your troubles pale in comparison to a cowardly, xenophobic, bigoted loser who doesn't know a thing about you, is delusional enough to think that you can issue military orders, and doesn't even have the stones to leave a made-up name, much less a real one. What a great ambassador for Australia!

Gosh, I had missed the offending comment(s). What a shame. Those who know you, know that these insults have no basis in fact. It's a mean-spirited, gutless person who would come into a situation like yours and make hateful comments like that.

And of course you have every right to control what comments go on, and stay on, your blog!

We love you and can't wait to see you!

Hey girl, I totally agree with the previous commenter. You really don't need anyone putting you down when you feel bad already. Good for you for taking the high road and anyone who knows you, knows that you are a fabulous mother and wife. I hope you are feeling better,

Hey, I see you have "House" in your favorite TV shows. This show is awesome, I'm so addicted to it! Just thought I'd share, because I'm glad that they have in Australia so you can watch it!

I feel like I missed something huge... It is most certainly YOUR blog -- which means you get to vent any which way you please, and control that which is posted by others. You've got enough other things to stress about. Particularly things that are out of your control. Your blog isn't though -- so control it all you want.
:) Love ya sweet thang!

Some people can make a lot of noise and never actually say a thing. You vent to your heart's desire and nevermind the meaningless people of the world who have other agendas. I love you and I know how wonderful of a family you have. Can't wait to see you... love to all!
