Quickchat massive congratulations on Charlie. How are you doing now? I can only just manage one, never mind 3 so hats off to you.

sock how are you doing now youve been on your own for a bit longer?

countymyblessings sorry for your news although I appreciate it's belated sympathys. Are you and DH trying for anymore?

Massive congratulations quickchat sounds a bit of a scary birth, but glad you and Charlie are doing well. Hope you are fully recovered soon smile

We are doing ok, finally got housing benefit sorted which was my big worry.
(X)H is having all three kids over night for the first time tonight. I am very much looking forward to my first lie in for about 9.5 years. hahaha.
He's only got a 1 bedroom flat and hasn't had a bed up till now, just a blow up mattress. He had just had the older two boys before. He really needs to sort out a house with room for the children, but he obviously didn't take that into consideration when he first went.

Next weekend I'm off up to visit my sister. She had twins in July and now has 5 children under 7 years old. We have all said its very considerate of her to have two, so there are plenty babies to pass around for a cuddle.

sock Sorry to hear about your situation. I hope you are coping with it ok and that family and stepping in for you to take a break now and again.

quickchat Congrats on the new baby and hope all is settling in well.

Hi everyone Thanks!

Charlie is 9 weeks and I am LOVING it!! Surprising myself really.

Going from 2-3 had definitely been easier than 1-2 in my experience anyway. He is sooo cute and smiley and sleeps pretty well. 9.30pm- 4.30/5.30am. Not bad going for his age. Im not counting chickens obviously as i now have enough children to realise he could turn on me in a few weeks and be back up every two hours smile!

Olivia is settling a bit now although we still have the odd jealous tantrum. She will be 3 15th Dec. I bet you are all in shock with how fast it's gone since our first Jan 10 posts! She is still a baby in my eyes though!

Evan is doing well at school. Doesn't listen to a bloody thing but he is having fun! I suppose he is happy to go to school and see his friends and not kicking and screaming so all good. Starting to get a bit cheeky though angry. Not enjoying that much.

Sock im glad you seem ok (although what do I know as im virtual)! Hope you enjoy getting a break at least and I hope he has a nightmare with all 3 in his flat - haha!

Wave to everyone else/ xx

<peers in> is anyone still here? I took a 2 and a half year MN break blush after a rather embarassing thread and ensuing chaos. (was crump...) If anyone's still here, I left my firm and I'm a 2nd year med student now and totally free from exP. I feel so much better I only wish I had done it years ago. Thank you to all who supported me your words and kindness gave me strength. xx

Hi cafecito- ( name changer I'm guessing)
Glad to hear your in a good place with your life and things are good for you, 2nd year med student who said you can't get on with life after children or with a young child!
Well done you and I hope you have a wonderful relaxing Christmas and as you enter into 2013 you can reflect and think - well done me!!

sockmonkey Tue 25-Dec-12 20:41:36

countmyblessings so pleased for you congratulations smile!

Im so sorry, id only jump on here quickly read a few posts above and around and seem to have missed yours.
What a hard time you had but all good in the end. You so deserve it.
There's me, panic stricken when I found myself PG with #3 you must have wanted to slap me blush. I wish I had seen it for what it was at the time - good and exciting instead of 9 months of wasted worry.

Enjoy your little one.

What did you have, boy or girl?

Charlie is 8 months now and super cute. Love this age. He is my worst sleeper though. Started off brilliant and downward spiral from there!
I was lucky with DS & DD, they slept 12 hours from 6 months but he decided to shake thinks up a bit!

Olivia is 3.5 nearly, as is everyone else's on this thread obviously! I wish I could bottle her right now too.

Evan is nearly 6, Id like to move on quickly with this stage grin!
I look at Olivia, playing dolls and fairies and singing to herself.
I look at Evan karate kicking everything, obsessing over monsters, aliens, skeletons and suggesting everything should DIE and think hmmm, I have to do the boy thing all over again - oh joy of joys!!

Loving new house although still plenty to do, no hurry, im staying put after 9 moves in 15 years.

citi Wow,, good to hear from you and even better you are away from that nightmare ex. How is your littleman?

sock how are things with you?
cant How are you?
superparty Is your little guy alright then?
