to think that boys should come with a government health warning, or at the very least you should not leave the maternity unit without a cage, padded cell, straight jacket, copius amounts of wine.....

HecatesTwopenceworth Thu 25-Jun-09 17:12:27

ooh, give me boys over raging bags of hormones wink any day.

GA?? what's he had done?

GhostOfPsychomum5 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:14:03

lockets, my first boy was a little wotsit (but he was excused, car accident during pregnancy can do that to a little chap....altho he is still a grumpy little sod wotsithmm!!), but DS2...............oh, he was lovely, seriously, could have done 10 of him up until he turned 18mths....

<<hopeful that I am not really cursing mini-boy-lockets the way DS2 was cursed..>>

Morloth Thu 25-Jun-09 17:14:17

I just run mine to exhaustion, he is unbearable otherwise.

memoo Thu 25-Jun-09 17:16:51

I have always said that the NHS should install piped Gas and Air into every mothers house and shouldn't take it away til the youngest turns 18!!!

Oh, and a victorian style fainting couch in each room

locekts.....<<mwhahaha>>......he is cursed, cursed I tells ye!!

<<not really as gleeful as the above sentence sounds, just mad with boy-nerves....>>

gas & air, yes, yes, yes, should be on permentant repeat script the minute you go into labour I reckons.....not ending until they leave home for the very last time

thumbwitch Thu 25-Jun-09 17:21:52

argh. am there with you. DS now 18 1/2 mo, nearly 19mo and is as energetic as a box full of hyperactive fleas. He loves throwing and hitting and kicking, not necessarily anything appropriate. Am worn out! <sigh>

GhostOfPsychomum5 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:23:24

he is fine now. coming round was bloody awful tho.........thrashing and turning and squirming......he couldn;t be left on the bed, so DH and I had to hold him and just keep swapping him from arms to arms.....was better tho once I told the anaesthatist (he came back as the nurses were worried) about his DX from last week, we them got given a private room and constant nurse.....calmed us down which helped enormously

GhostOfPsychomum5 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:26:16

they now have bowls of 'sgetti'............soft for DS2, fave of DS1, you would think it would bring calm wouldn;t you......

nope, they have now made a game into the 'airplane' feeding I used to do when they were tiny, only I seem to have spitfires and bombers and jets screaching across the tablehmm

<<bangs head on wall in frustration of this being my life for the next however many years>>

<<gives up pouring wine, glugs from the bottle>>

GhostOfPsychomum5 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:26:59

thumbwitch, hyper-active fleas......lol

Satsuma1 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:28:07

I hear you!

My DS is 16 months and is wearing me out. I've started to take him to the Botanic gardens every day for for hours just to let him run around and do his own thing. It's the only way I can survive the day.

He is my only LO atm, so I'm lucky I can indulge him (and myself!). Don't know what I'll do if we have another!

Hope the wee guy feels better soon.

GhostOfPsychomum5 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:30:16

ta satsuma......seems you and morloth are kindred spirits in the wearing them out

this boy is youngest of five, I am worn out before he came!!

Ebb Thu 25-Jun-09 17:53:31

Yanbu!

Apparently I didn't give birth to a boy, I gave birth to a mountain goat! hmm I thought my lounge was fairly child friendly until Ds ( 13mths ) learnt to climb. And he doesn't seem to have any concept about getting down. I need a fishing net on a stick to catch him.

I mean, how am I supposed to mn get anything done when he decides to climb on everything?! He'll be having his first trip to casualty soon if I don't catch him in time!

Someone please pass the drink........ grin

GhostOfPsychomum5 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:55:33

yep, mine is a climber too<<looks at the obvious evidence of the drawers in the kitchen having been made into an impromtu ladder......hmm>>

<<pours the dregs of wine for ebb, then opens new bottle>>

thefortbuilder Thu 25-Jun-09 17:57:03

ds1 (2.11) has jsut thrown chicken, rice and peas into his hair...
he's just being a little devil today - time out at least 10 times - never this bad before.

psychomum i'm with you on the drinking from the bottle

GhostOfPsychomum5 Thu 25-Jun-09 18:01:41

<<sits with kindred spirit flick>>

<<hugs her in drunken camaradierie.....however the hell you speel it!!.>>

thefortbuilder Fri 26-Jun-09 07:38:05

<<flick mumbles through haze of hangover>> I managed to drink from a glass at the pub though last night - maybe a few too many times blush

Love my boy. He's so bouncy and enthusiastic. Lacks the sly calculating side my daughter has. I love her as well of course but he's always been a more open character, and more openly emotional. Yet to be a teenager though so will soon change.
