Name Change Saga - cont...

So we have faxed all our 'evidence' and they have received the acknowledgement of receipt, copy of birth certificate, proof of payment and adoption order but... now we must go back to the branch were we handed this in and RE-SUBMIT all paper works!

We were there on the 21st of Jan 2008 will all documentation, (all originals) we only have stamped copies at the moment because you get the originals back in the post when you get the new birth certificate.

So I asked them WHY? We did fax you everything thru?

Their answer?

"Head office is requesting you to kindly visit your office of application to re-apply for the personal amendment.
Once the application is filled out and stamped, kindly fax it along with the proof of payment.

Please note that the case resolutions team requested that you resend the application forms as they are needed for their archives. Also be advised that, head office will only accept the copies of the application if they are stamped and signed by the office of application. We do understand how inconvenient this must all be for you, but please understand that we are conveying a message from the department that is dealing with your child’s application. We are requesting all the information and documentation that the case resolution team is asking for in order for them to complete your application. Again we do apologize for the trouble and frustrations you must be going through, but kindly fax us the required documentation in order for this case to be finalized."


I DONT UNDERSTAND... we fax all evidence thru now we must go back with the evidence to re-apply???

Maybe I’m blond but if it is done and we have all proof why do we need to re-submit?

Another pissed off day for me.. Last time we stood in line for 4 hours! So now I must go to my uptight Team leader and ask for time off.. damit!

My babies.. (or little men...)

They were out of the box silly on Sunday.. I suspect the green cool drink (AfridizzyCreamsoda) were a bit to much for them. They are so sweet at the moment! I could just hug them to bits! Except when Liam doesn’t want to sleep at night... then all sweetness disappears... LOL!

Name Change

I'm seriously pissed off today.

It is now exactly 1 year and 7 months that we are waiting for Liam's new birth certificate. How long can a name change possible take!?

I've mailed them, phone them and even went back to the Office in Arcadia to find out the answer? HEAD office did not make the changes they will make it in due time. WTF!?

Random Pictures of Jano and Liam together

Some updates

Jano is now 3 years 6 months. He is very very busy. Absolutely LOVE to build puzzles. He can now built 35 pieces without any help. And he is constantly asking me for more difficult puzzles. He talks NON stop always but always wants to have the last word. He loves attention. He hates to cleanup LOL! he is now starting to color within the lines he usually colored the whole page :-) yesterday he brought me his color page - a green sheep. I asked him way is the whole sheep green... he looks at me and said. You mamparra the sheep eats green grass now he is green LOL! Mamparra is now his fav word. Sigh. I tried to explain to him it is not nice to say but ja we will see when he understands that. He is since January completely Potty Trained! YEAH! Liam is now 2 years 2 months. WE ARE STILL struggling with a sleep routine! I am 1 very tired mommy... he now sleeps in our bed because he cries until he starting to throw up. So to avoid that trauma he is now a king-size bed rester... that is the only negative i can say about Liam, he is actually a adorable fun giggling child.. He is now starting to combine words, and he is constantly bugging Jano, he grabs Jano's puzzles and then run with it, hiding stuff and loves teletubbies. Liam is about 60% Potty trained. he still have accidents and still go to be with a nappy...

It is going klopdisselboom with Johan and me.. My mom is now staying with us. That is helping us tremendously! She cooks and help with the kids... we can actually go out now! Mom is there to baby-sit.

Can't wait for December I’m going to take 3 weeks leave.
