To want mil to stop being so sad about dd "growing up"

to put this in context-dd2 is four weeks old! I am enjoying the changes and was feeling much happier about her getting bigger, more alert, less scrunched up, sleeping more. Then I was reminded about how mil ( who I adore and respect in most ways!) reacts as my children get bigger. There are frequent comically (usually) grief laden comments like "where's my baby gone?". Said this this morning! Reminded her that her baby was actually right in front of her! I know she's being light hearted but I don't really enjoy it.

Stop flooding the board with the same question

Sometimes iphones can post multiple threads/posts can't they?

They're all at the same time so the OP's probably not done it on purpose tuggy.

Agentzigzag yes if they'd all been at the same time I'd presume it was an accident. However the posting times are


so apart from those middle two they are spaced too far apart to be an accidental double click post.

I'm sorry about the multiple posts yesterday. It was an I phone problem, combined with dodgy reception where we are at the moment, so when I came back to the phone later on it looked as if I hadn't posted it when I now know I had. Have learnt a valuable lesson, from a post that was pretty trivial anyway.

Tuggy you seem to get irritated very easily!

MIL sounds a bit silly. I'm lamenting DS1 getting older and passing stages, but he's nearly 6!
