Jas Fri 05-Sep-08 07:26:17

Toddler group start again this morning, and I need to go to the library (cd is still missing) and PO.

RubyRioja Fri 05-Sep-08 07:29:42

Hiya
had anxious night, wakeful, so am shattered. I think it is becuase dcs are back at school. I do wish I could learn to be a bit more relaxed and accepting of the dds. I tend to focus on academic success too much and need to get a grip. (My prob is that dd1 is v bright and v lazy and underachieves badly).

Am trying to give rational thought to dealing with my attitude today.

And also de-nitting. One day back at school fgs!

ruby think i am guilty of that a little too. ds is very bright but easily distratced. although he asked me to buy the Bond 11+ books the other day as he wats to do his and wants to do well (his words)
its hard to know when encouraging becomes "pushing" am trying to follow his lead and encourage, am hoping i'm hoping i'm not being pushy hmm

Morning

Thanks for th ethread Jas

Ruby I am similar with dd whereas ds gives me no worries at all...wonder why it is? Dd is confident on the outside but quite insecure in many ways. She is also bright but lazy, like your dd. Ds takes everything in his stride and doesn't seem to have a worry in the world!
angry for you de-nitting already!
I hope you have recieved my CAT, sent last night x

I have a day of errands and bits and bots today, then ds has a friend coming after school so I may find a friend for dd too but we'll see; she is soooo tired already.

I need to run the hoover round upstairs and clean the bathroom/cloakroom. any other FLY jobs will be a bonus today.

BiancaCastafiore Fri 05-Sep-08 08:15:09

Oh, meant to say Tort, your ds looks lovely in his uniform, bless him. You obviously managed to find him a blazer. Hope he gets on OK.

BiancaCastafiore Fri 05-Sep-08 08:15:29

..and hello Dyls

Jas enjoy toddlers this morning. I love the first one back after the holidays because the children change so much.
Ruby I think it's a normal reaction from most mothers. I know I'll be he same but will try very hard to be encouraging but not pushy. My Mum, being a primary school teacher tended to be abit pushy and it did stress me out quite alot.

To do today
Go to town sad The weather is rubbish here.
Hoover
Look around for a cheap new DVD player, ours died Wednesday, sound but no picture. angry
Hoover
Sort dc's toys out, again.
Iron, inc. dd's school uniform shock

Probably loads more needs doing, but nxt week am really going to start being a good FLYer and get proper routines sorted out etc. hmm
The w/m has just finished so had better go and finish morning routine.
Have a good morning everyone

EustaciaVye Fri 05-Sep-08 10:12:02

Morning everyone.

Still in PJs. Have been up since 6 with DD2 who is full of cold. Managed to finish my book which is nice but I have let them watch tv for hours. Have told DD1 she can stay in PJs all day so she is happy hmm

Argggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg gggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg

Morning from Hell - I have deposited a devil of a child (DS1) to my mothers in tears.

He woke me and DS2 up at 4, put them back to bed, I woke up to giggling at 5.50, only to find they had raided the fridge and both bedrooms were covered in yogurt.

Got DH up, who came down and fed them and clothed them.

I still have diareea - any way, whilst I was changing the beds and cleaning their rooms, they poured milk all over miy bed.

And then........... glitter and glue everywhere downstairs.

I just didnt know where to start. I bathede them both, although DS2 still has loads in his hair and took DS1 to mums. She just looked at me like i was a loon sad

I have hoovered - still glitter all over, am mopping and then will hoover nad mop again

dylsmum1998 Fri 05-Sep-08 11:15:58

have also played at the park for about an hour. before coming back to do housework. i had started sorting the toys out in the living room but dd is now playing with them, i don't think i shall manage to cull them wth her here so may try again tonight when the dc in bed.
off to try and sort the shoe cupboard out before lunch
why is it i'm hungrier on days i eat breakfast than when i don't?
i have started this week sitting with the dc to eat breakfast instead of ruching round doing things while they eat. then realising at lunchtime i havent eaten. i have found that i am hungrier when i eat breakfast, which is very strange hmm

dylsmum1998 Fri 05-Sep-08 11:17:46

oh tmh x posts. you poor thing, the little devils!! i do hope you feel better soon and get it cleared up quickly soyou can have some rest

Morning everyone*

*Ruby
nits after 1 day shock That's something I'm not looking forward to when my lo goes to school in a couple of years

Mad Sounds like an horrendous morning! Cuppa n chill for 5 before tackling anything would be well deserved I think

Jas enjoy toddlers

tigger whose birthday was it? was it you who posted about the number 5 birthday cake in recipes? How did it turn out?

EV pj's all day . . . I wish grin

I've had a busy one so far today, seems to be a V-E-R-Y L-O-N-G M-O-R-N-I-N-G though sad. So far I've dressed lo and fed us all, made beds, filed paperwork, wm on, td on, pots, cleaned bathroom, hunted for mop - only to find it and its bucket outside in the peeing down rain (so am sending oh out for it later). Have also rung mil with small list for asda, paid my unpaid bill after rooting out cheque book.

Still to do:
~flapjacks and biccys
~loaf of bread maybe
~td towels when wm finished
~mop
~sort bathroom cabinet
~online shopping list
~check next fortnights budget accounts for everything this time hmm
~declutter at least one kitchen cupboard
~hoover upstairs

Right t'oven is warming up so best get making flapjacks. will bbl to catch up, hope you're all having a good (ish?) day xx

tigger32 Fri 05-Sep-08 11:28:27

tmh, thats horrible for you the little monkeys, I can imagine my 2 doing something similar to that.

I hope you manage to get all that gitter up, it can be there for weeks sometimes! sad
Good luck with the clearing up.

dm, I'm very envy of your list of done jobs shock

I'm slowing getting through mine, going to get ds1 lunch some lunch now as we have to leave for school at 12pm
then will hoover lounge/dining room
and both missions
oh and baby steps (both reading) smile

RubyRioja Fri 05-Sep-08 11:29:21

Poor Mad - those boys sound q testing atm. WOuld you like to swap for a girl for a day or two? Change is as good as a rest they say.

Am blush re nits after day 1. Have discovered nit the size of a large ant in my head - clearly I am patient zero and I am infecting the whole school. Presumably have been offering asylum to nits since I last blasted the dds after a party.

Otherwise, have collected xmas shopping and seen wrapping paper in M&S. V exciting.

tigger32 Fri 05-Sep-08 11:31:29

lucy, was ds1 birthday, yes that was me with number 5 cake! It was fantastic (even if i do say so myself) wink

Having joint part for both ds tomorrow so got lots to do (party at mums though) grin

EustaciaVye Fri 05-Sep-08 11:40:08

Wow Mad. I think I'd leave kids at your mums. angry

Ruby - yikes. I am yet to have to deal with an infestation. I know combing with conditioner is the best thing but I'm quite phobic about parasites. I was thinking about stocking up on harsh chemicals to treat nits/worms etc. Recommendations?

Ok, I am dressed but already covered in snot from DD2. Am going to try and enlist DDs help to tody ouse soon. Not sure it will work.

RubyRioja Fri 05-Sep-08 11:46:52

Seriously EV I think I have tried preventative and treatment on the market.

Conditioner alone fine if you catch v early on. But if you miss a day or two f 21 day cycle, you are buggered.

my favourite is Full Marks Solution (10 min type) as not traditional pesticide and lots of oil and silicon in it to aid combing and egg removal. Do twice, 7 days apart.

Am ignoring advice of treating only family member with walking nits, as this seems to lead to me being host/asylum and then reinfecting everyone, especially when mine creep into each others beds.

BTW have tried
tea tree oil
cocnut oil
eating garlic
hair spray
nit repellent formula

to prevent, and all have failed. grrrr

dylsmum1998 Fri 05-Sep-08 11:59:02

ruby i know how you feel with the nits. i visited my sister in the summer and combed my neices hair to see lice crawling around, not just one or 2 hundreds! didnt say anything in front of my neice waited til later and said to my sis about it. oh i thought that was dandruf!! to have that many they must have been there a while. checked mine and my dc hair and we'd all caught them. so used that full marks stuff that you mentioned and got one of those nittygritty combs. sat combing for 4 days and we are all clear, well have been for just over a fortnight
good luck
