Lord I am so grateful for so many things .. But today I will just pick one of those things.

Today I am grateful for Brandon Sauer. My Best mate, my other half, my confidant, my partner in crime and my fiance.

I have so many reasons to be so thankful to this gorgeous human.. But the thing I am most thankful for is him being my calm place..

My mind is such a storm sometimes, but Brandon is my calm ocean. :)

So thank you babe, for always putting up with my crazy mood swings, my wacky ideas and my obsessive need to clean the house at times. And then for not cleaning at all at other times.

You are a gem!

Oh, and obvs cheers for always doing all the man stuff around the place. ;-)



So I think my eye has a twitch .. you know the sort of twitch I'm talking about .. the type of twitch that can only come with having 2 kids ages 3 and 6 at home together for the holidays.

All I can think is WHY?

Why do you have to eat chips in the loungeroom instead of at the table like I have asked you a million times today?
Why do you have to crush said chips into the carpet with your gumboots on?
Why do you have to come into your room and pull out ALL the toys you havent played with for weeks right after I have just finished tidying it?
Why do you feel the need to jump all over my bed after I've just made it?
Why do you feel the need to scream at the top of your lungs over a broken toy?
Why do you feel the need to wrestle each other and send a pot plant flying all over the carpet?


Children have this innate ability to send you absolutely crazy! I swear my kids wake up every morning and have a little meeting together before I wake up and the meeting goes a little something like this:

"hey Maddy, we only have a certain amount of years at home. The aim is to make sure mum is committed before we get too old and move out. So, today, when she tidies your room for the 10th time, make sure you sneak in there afterward with your water bottle and absolutely soak your whole entire bed with it. Mom hates washing sheets."

There is just reason 1 as to why I have this crazy eye twitch.

But, even on these crazy days.. I'm grateful to have both my babies.. They saved me.. Even if they will eventually end up committing me.. :P

My Life As It Stands Right This Minute

Welcome to everyone to my new blog! Dreamers and Daisies. I'm so happy and grateful you have popped over and took time out from your busy day to read what I have to say and share a small piece of your day with me. :)

I suppose I should maybe introduce myself a little bit. My name is Courtney Haack and I am mamma to Zachy (6) and Maddy, or as I will often refer to her as Tootie (3) and fiance to Brandon.
You will often see me write about Zachy and his meltdowns or his quirky behaviours as he has ASD. It often makes for great story telling. And Maddy, well Maddy is just a clumsy little daydreamer.
Both my little lovelies inherited this ability to block out the world and slip into daydreams from yours truly.
People will often be like "Courtney are you listening?" and often times I'm not. hahaha. But I dont do it to be rude, I've just slipped into a daydream.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I love writing it. :)

Have a gorgeous day!

--> How great is this rain we are having in Gympie! <--
