I think I blinked. I suddenly have a sleeping, walking, potty training ball of chaos to deal with. How did that happen?!

Boo!

20mo in just a few weeks. I'd like to say it went quickly. But it didn't.

g'day all

Sorry PR I thought of that just as I hit Post Conversation. It should have said 18 months or older.

No no the boo wasn't a boo that's bad stunt it was a surprise jump out at ya boo. Which onviously wasn't clear grin

H is 20 months in a couple of days. Dh keeps wanting to talk about his 2nd birthday party, my head is firmly in the sand.

You go out for a leg wax and come back to a whole new thread.

S is 19 mo now and I am regularly shocked by this fact.

Pikz Tue 03-Jun-14 14:01:43

Ouchie to the leg wax

Lalalala L is still a baby lalalala

I love this age. So much more interactive.

grin At thread ending.

I LOVE this age. O is bloody hilarious. New words every day and the cheekiest sense of humour. A couple of months ago I was finding him rather difficult, but this stage is just brilliant.

I am very much looking forward to seeing Lily this weekend. And yes, I will take O off your hands for you as I shall be without my O smile

Wtf. I turn my head for a min and the thread died. Lily the serial thread killer. It's official.

Is it this weekend? That's come round quickly. I keep forgetting it is already June. How exciting!!

PurplePidjin Tue 03-Jun-14 16:16:06

i might pop this in actual aibu later if I'm feeling feisty grin

aibu to think i shouldn't have to cross the entire park to speak to the parent of a dc younger than mune? she was kicking him and i told her not to twice. third time was in the face and made him cry so i told the parent! and yes, they also happened to be fat. and smoking hmm

Lily311 Tue 03-Jun-14 16:52:39

I did not actually kill it...

O is 18 months old and I find her a terror. Her behaviour is challenging and we have huge tantrums. But she has 4 teeth coming through and her language development is really amazing, she now speaks in 3 word sentences.

Yep, this weekend. Anyone fancy joining us at Euston on Saturday for lunch?

Do link to your aibu pidj if you decide to post one.

I'd love to be there lily but I am unfortunately unable grin

J is nearly 20 months, speaking in 3 word sentences and really specialising in the taxonomy of monkeys /apes it seems - he can tell me baboons, gorillas, chimps and gibbons! (Anthony Browne's 1 Gorilla is his favourite book). Now we can have 'conversations' and he can tell me what's up - life is a lot easier. But because he's wee I still get the small baby feeling. He says "hiya baby" to my belly now smile . I'm liking this age.

Pidj YANBU but her weight and smoking is pretty irrelevant.

Lily311 Tue 03-Jun-14 18:09:08

Just checked in for my flight. One thing I don't understand. Why do I need to sit by the window with an infant? Ba does not let me change the seat to Isle one. I hate sitting by the window, totally impractical with a toddler. I will try to change it at the airport but this happens to me all the time.

Wandathewindfairy Tue 03-Jun-14 18:17:29

If anyone would like thighs of steel then come hither and help me with my weeding.

Might even chuck in a bun of steel also.

When I went to get the boys from nursery I actually felt wobbly. I still feel wobbly an hour later.

fruitpastilles Tue 03-Jun-14 18:19:34

Urgh.... I didn't iron dp's shirt for work when S was napping, I have to do it in a min. I bloody hate ironing.

S is very comical at the moment, she makes me laugh every day. She also embarrasses me, yesterday when we was in town, she kept pointing at random men shouting daddy.

Right, going to put S to bed and iron that shirt.

Lily its because someone with a toddler on their lap would act as a barrier to exiting the plane to other people in the row in the event of a crash - and they'd also have to pass hot drinks over your toddlers head to serve other passengers. For health and safety all airlines therefore like to seat parents and kids next to the window.
