party season

ok so here i go on a rant again,

j recieved his first party invitation yesterday and while i was talking to some of the new kindy mums about when our childrens birthday come up , we got too talking about part food, it was then i discovered that i could possibly be the only mother left in the world that served lolies, chips, and all sorts of yummy treats including cordial, at my kiddies b'days?? surely this cant be the case... can it????
apperently so with group this mums .
when i was a child we never had that stuff on hand, it was simply "party food" we couldnt go to fridge or cupboards and help ourselves to copius amount of chips, lollies and choccies which im sure is the case for most families with little people (including ours), so i dont understand why most birthday parties are being over ruled by fruit platters and rice crackers and healthy alternatives, not saying there is anything wrong with those things, and i do always make up a yummy fruit platter, but really its a birthday party, we pump enough healthy stuff into them throughout the week with our constant lunchbox war's without depriving them of some party food on the odd occasion,i think its a great way of teaching them about "sometimes food" i dont ever buy cordial at home but when my kids go to partys i let them drink it, why?? because letting a 6 yo have a couple of glasses at a party will not kill them , but rather "teach" them that its ok to have these thing on an odd occasion such as a party but you dont need to have them everyday, my children usually still choose water over any other drink, and love most fruits and vegies, so for me letting them have a little treat at party is speacial thing that they enjoy

sleep ins....

So im wondering how many of you mumma's out there actually have a child that sleeps in or a baby that sleep's through and by that i mean a solid 12 hours, i no some mums who state the babies sleep through but its from around 10 pm until around 5am? i dont call that sleeping through i call that tortue!! and sleeping in is anytime past 730
well im one of those women who NEVER had a child that slept through /slept in
my babies always woke around 2 am for a feed than a sleep even up to the age 1
i couldnt reason with myself to let them cry it out at 2am so it was easier for me the enitre household, just to feed them and go back to sleep, than back up at 6.....
well i got sucked into having a clothing party ( which i had last night) by one of the new school mum's who has just started doing them, everyone arrived by 730, hubby was out because the thought of that many women in one room
scared him a little, the boys had been picked up by their aunty who was going to have them for the night, mummy was enjoying a few voddy's looking at the clothes, everyone was enjoying the night chatting away when my little monsters darlings came running through the front door, jordy had gotten upset and wanted to come home, it was a round 10 pm???? my kids are usually in bed at 730 so by the time they actually got to bed it was 11 pm, i was thinking to mysef and having a bit of a brag saying oh they will sleep well tonight they have never stayed up this late before, but you guessed it 630 this morning i hear them playing! hmmmm i really do envy these mumma's of babies that sleep in especially on mornings like these
