YAY!! for Charli

Today was a big day out, we had to walk to the bus stop, catch the bus to the train station, catch the train to the city and then catch the tram to the Children's Hospital. It took an hour, but it was actually fun despite the heat, although it wasn't as hot as it was supposed to be which was great. The girls had fun as always when using public transport, they think it is a wonderful adventure and considering the state of the transport system at the moment, they are half right. The Opthamologist that we saw today told me that Paige's eyesight is 20/20 with her glasses and she was very impressed not only with her very cool frames, but the fact that she could read all of the letters asked of her and insisted on doing extra just for fun. She was in a much better mood this time and I think it may have had something to do with the lack of drops to freak out her eyes. No massive pupils today.

Once we were done with that, we went to the evil, but totally convenient, McDonalds and the girls were both suitably excited by their little toy poodles. They had a play in the the playground for about 1/2 hour and once they started to get pink, I thought we should possibly go and buy some sunblock since I had run out and their hats were not quite sombrero enough to stop the burn. Once they had purple suncream (which dries clear) rubbed all over, we ventured back out into the sun on a quest back to the train station. We stopped at Flagstaff Station for the girls to have a bit of fun looking at the water feature out the front, but unfortunately for them there was no touching due to the reclaimed water. Then home.

The moral of this long-winded story is that we were out all day and Charli was only wearing knickers....YAY!! No pull up pants, no accidents. So it seems that we (well she really) are not doing too badly at all with the whole toilet training. Now lets see if is keeps going this well.
