I hate questions like that Chasing! This page has some good ideas that you could borrow and tailor to yourself?

ChasingDaisy Thu 21-Nov-13 14:24:54

Thanks miss smile I've got something now.

stunt Why did he feel the need to move J? Bit confused as to why he would do that. And how horrible for you to have to sleep on the floor, and then to top it all off, be kicked! I can understand what you mean about it being more of nudge to tell you to go back to bed rather than an actual kick but still! Completley unappropraite behaviour from him.

Haha jj I have bought E the toot toot garage for xmas. Got it for a bargain price due to christmas bargain threads so if it's crap I'm glad I didn't fork out more. Hopefully it will at least entertain her (more likely DD1) for a while anyway.

chasing Good luck with the app. I hate filling out things like that!

My heating is stuck on. Better than being off as I hate being cold. The thermostat is at 24.5o smile. I'm too scared to turn it off in case it doesn't come back on but I guess I can't just leave it as it is.

I suggested that she should write she was stunning but she dismissed it. Or her head is screwed on her neck. Or something similar.

hi shelly. A few of us have NC'd. Maybe those of us who have need to update the pinned post on FB.

Poor O misslaughalot. But you're right, she won't have a scooby about the importance of the day. And if she ends up anything like my DD, a trip to the hospital is her idea of a theme park. Loves it.

ChasingDaisy Thu 21-Nov-13 14:54:56

Miss, I know how you feel about the birthday. It isn't the same at all, but I was planning to do something with O and my parents next Thursday (same birthday smile) and they suggested driving to pick up his birthday cake hmm A 40 mile round trip stuck in the car wasn't exactly what I had in mind. I think I'll just plan a nice day for me and O.

Lily311 Thu 21-Nov-13 15:06:25

chasing that's what I had yesterday with O and wouldn't change it for anything. She loved the zoo, loved my wonky cake and loved me blush.

ChasingDaisy Thu 21-Nov-13 15:10:22

I kinda feel like it should be just me and him. He's with his dad on the Friday and his party is on the Saturday. Will be nice to have a day just about the two of us. I think a 1st birthday is about the mum as well as the baby. I am feeling sad that a year ago me and XP were still together and that we should be reminiscing about this time together.

ditsygal Thu 21-Nov-13 16:05:55

Yep Zamboni Nottingham Panthers. I grew up in Notts and my Grandad was a supporter from when they started then my dad used to go with him and when my granddad died my dad started taking me instead so I've really grown up supporting them. Its rare I get chance to go to a game now but still try to occasionally and F had a little Panthers babygrow too (that he has now grown out of!)

PetiteRaleuse Thu 21-Nov-13 17:07:04

Anyone's LO found a more hilarious game than emptying boxes of wipes hmm ?

Went to pick up LO at nursery this evening and the nurses told me she had spent the day asserting her independent voice. A bit of digging uncovered that they meant she had been a stubborn pita who doesn't like the word 'no' grin

ChasingDaisy Thu 21-Nov-13 17:13:30

Yes PR. Eating said wipes hmm

PurplePidjin Thu 21-Nov-13 17:36:27

Hitting things with other things to find out what makes the loudest noise his percussionist mother's son then hmm you can see the naice helpers at playgroup wince every time he heads for the toy kitchen blush

Have only just noticed this tardis! Has it been there for ages?!

PetiteRaleuse Thu 21-Nov-13 17:47:04

It's just here this week. 50th anniversary Dr Who I think.

YellowWellies Thu 21-Nov-13 17:50:52

No I think it's new for the Dr Who anniversary?

Our favourite game is climbing anything. Especially stairs. And trying to sneak into the shower, unscrew the drain cover and stick his hand down the drain before Mummy comes shrieking! Am seeing the appeal of an over bath shower. Shame we don't have one confused

Damn Not on the High Street emails - have just spent too much thanks to them blush but that's all the kids in the family sorted smile .

YellowWellies Thu 21-Nov-13 17:52:07

Nice try John Lewis - I'm wise enough not even to open your email! grin

ChasingDaisy Thu 21-Nov-13 18:30:57

I luffs NOTHS. Luckily I can't afford to shop there this year grin

PetiteRaleuse Thu 21-Nov-13 18:34:45

Final call for secret santa smile

Passmethecrisps Thu 21-Nov-13 19:03:44

<jingles bell for secret Santa>

Hallo.

P's favourite things include:
Whipping wipes out of the packet
Stroking aging pussy
Walking round and round and round and round
New fav - sharing her dummy with me.

We do the dummy sharing thing too. O finds it hilarious if I have the handle in my mouth and then lean over to put the teat in her mouth. She opens her mouth to take it but then giggling gets in the way grin

Passmethecrisps Thu 21-Nov-13 19:07:20

Other favs include

Chucking all things out of cot then crying for their immediate return. This is happening right now
Nicking my pencil case out of my work bag and hiding it

fruitpastilles Thu 21-Nov-13 19:19:34

The cot thing is a fave of S's. Her other favourites are emptying her bottom drawer and running (crawling) away from me as fast as she possibly can shrieking with delight and stopping every second to turn around to make sure I'm chasing her.

PetiteRaleuse Thu 21-Nov-13 19:31:32

One of my kitchen cupboards is a safe place. Full of plastic salad crap and plastic cups so I can pretend to get mad when they empty it. They get the fun and as I don't react with the other cupboards in the same way they don't bother.

BigPigLittlePig Thu 21-Nov-13 19:55:42

Fecking teeth. I haven't had to eat tea one handed for a while!

Birthday cake looks VERY homemade not in a good way

Fave things here -
lobbing stuff out of the bath
chewing shoes
opening and closing doors again and again and again
holding a ball in her mouth and crawling around mooing

YellowWellies Thu 21-Nov-13 20:06:36

Jonas loves it when you lay him on the bed and flump down next to him making him boing into the air.

Tonight for the first time he emptied his ikea wooden block wagon of all the blocks and sat in it. Looking vair chuffed with himself. He was delighted when I pulled it across the room. smile
