Mel G - March 5, 2015 - 9:42 pm

I know! Guy’s waaay too mainstream for Eurovision. And I heard him described as “Australia’s first ever entrant”….. I’m sure we’ve had someone before?

Your dad is so cute, a fairytale grandad personified.

Bruce Devereaux - February 28, 2015 - 9:23 pm

He’s a bugger. And the kids love him for it :D

Haha just as I’ve always suspected! I get told the Little Mister was great all the time! Except for that one time I was out of town overnight for a wedding and couldn’t get back and the Little Mister was waking everyone hourly…but let’s not talk about that one haha.

I have been reading about your family exploits since Miss 3 was in utero and never has a day passed that hasn’t made me laugh. Even if it wasn’t that day necessarily. Sometimes the links to yesteryear are funnier, but thank you for all the laughs gasps and knowledge I’m not the craziest parent out here, you are! HAHAHHAHA

KIVA is an awesome way to help people to help themselves without stretching your own budget. Basically, you loan someone US$25 and they pay it back. At that point you can reloan the money to someone else or take it back.

Uh oh haha. I’d say maybe she needs a Snickers but obviously that would defeat the purpose of what she’s trying to achieve! By the way, I think she looks great too!
I do actually like the marbles in the jars idea, though. Would be quite motivating…as long as my hubby doesn’t keep adding marbles, right? :P

Oops!! Put the blame back on her ;-) She should’ve explained to you exactly what was going on the with marbles… If she had communicated with you then this never would’ve happened… Actually don’t, you may lose your head, I’ve been hangry from dieting before and you can’t see reason!

Emma-Lee - February 25, 2015 - 2:02 pm

seriously just explain to her thats not what u meant show her that you like the way she is do something nice for her being a girl is hard in the world today too many women are not eating properly just to look like the girls on the covers of magazines. you feel all this pressure and judgement from other more skinnier girls to look like them. so just say you’re sorry and do something really nice for her show her that you love her the way she is and show her that she isn’t what she thinks she is, which is fat, your wife can be as skinny as she can get and still think shes fat thanks to the 21st century’s unattainable ideals and standards of beauty.

Bruce Devereaux - February 25, 2015 - 9:34 pm

She knows how I feel. She just likes to give me shit lol
