To my 14 yr DD at school, weight 71b 2oz, at 3:02pm.

She is VERY fussy and needs LOADS of attention. Has different nappies so knows when changed! HAs own bottle & DD is tagged so ONLY she can look after "Isobel".

Wish me luck

Is this to dissuade them from making you grandparents early?!

Good luck!

LOL! And good luck, Grandma!

you're going to have to move off the pc to give DD a chance to spend her life here now

Milliways Fri 10-Jun-05 19:01:17

Yes - all the boys had them first . Some of them die! Most of the kids can't wait to get them then can't wait to give them back. The head is VERY floppy & has to be supported all the time, so no carrying home in the schoolbag.

Ours caused a stir on the school bus!

Congratulations & good luck, the few times i've seen them on telly they look harder work than the real thing!!

Ha Ha Twiglett - The DD says Hi to everyone

Fantastic; how is your DD finding motherhood?

Milliways Sat 11-Jun-05 17:01:27

OMG - it is terrible. DD was up all night - got 3 hrs sleep max & was threatening to lock it in the garage!. She says "I'm only 14 -too young to be dealing with this". To save sanity we prised the wristband of her & I took over for a while. This was a goodopportunity to talk about how a baby in a supportive family PLANNED role can be shared a bit, SINGLE motherhood is not to be contemplated.

However...... She vows she is NEVER EVER going to have a baby, only adopt a 4 yr old + .......... and this after only 1 night!

These should be compulsory for ALL teenagers

Thanks for asking.

Twiglett Sat 11-Jun-05 17:06:44

Would you like to borrow my 4 year old so she can test out that theory

Pinotmum Sat 11-Jun-05 17:10:30

PMSL - that is fantastic your poor dd.

QueenEagle Sat 11-Jun-05 17:12:53

These should deffo be compulsory for all teenagers - and I mean girls AND boys.

Hulababy Sat 11-Jun-05 17:13:59

Excellent; so at least it seems to have the desired effect! Maybe those three girls that all got pg in same family should have gone through this first!

Milliways Sat 11-Jun-05 21:12:28

Phew - have just got it to sleep!

DD wants to know why it always cries when we are trying to eat

MarsLady Sat 11-Jun-05 21:17:06

Excellent. So will she be posting and asking for advice?

hunkermunker Sat 11-Jun-05 21:17:32

Milliways, I hope you rolled your eyes and said, "Because that's what babies do!!"

Sounds like you won't be a granny just yet...

Milliways Sat 11-Jun-05 21:19:46

Oh no...... she's deff a career girl now

roisin Sat 11-Jun-05 21:21:29

Sounds fabulous! Maybe we should get a mumsnet one to send round to those who are wondering about the wisdom of a second/third/fourth/fifth ...?!

Milliways Sat 11-Jun-05 21:29:06

Our new baby!

hunkermunker Sat 11-Jun-05 21:30:20

You should post a birth announcement, Milliways!!

Milliways Sat 11-Jun-05 21:30:50
