shock sounds like you have your hands full Soka.....dont you just love how many people say that to you grin

<<watches the news and gives Osbourne the 'finger'>>

Im thinking of starting a revolution against the Government - anybody interested lol.....there's just me in my living room (of course with my blinds closed?????) sat on my lazy benefit claiming arse bum at the moment!!!

Mr Osbourne I will have you know that I dont have blinds in my benefit claiming living room....but I will draw my curtains if you carry on!!!

Hi All, (again) Kate, no need to apologise, we are all on the lookout for new victims friends who are in the same boat as us, as you can see, we all have kids of variing ages, and there is usually someone who can say "been there, done that" with problems/questions about living with multiples and the headaches they cause , as well as life in general.
Shabs - I heard on the news Osbourne was intending to stick it to the poorest in society who can't complain, instead of his 'friends in high places', I take it he is going on about how well off those on benifits actually are... like to see him live off of them for a month or more, and see how he changes his tune.

Sok, My house is a tip, and I can't even blame a christening, just living with 2 preteens and a DH who often behaves like one!!!grin

Infuriating isn't it shabs. I don't have blinds neither, wots that all about? I'll join you though I'm sat on my benefit claiming arse too. Ds1 will also join, he's only 10 and already claiming benefits, got him started good and early! grin

wow, sokmonsta! I had similar age gaps with my four, it's just a blur now!

Chopstheduck Mon 08-Oct-12 11:19:41

I'd like to see him spend a day using a wheelchair, in pain and not able to stand and then see what he thinks about DLA 'scroungers'

Chigertick one of my 2 had recurrent ear infections when he was young, he had small 'tubes' everywhere concerning ENT, ears, eyes, the lot, so had stents put in his tear ducts and grommets in his ears, also had tonsils & adenoids out, and has been fine since then <<touching wood>>, but I can sympathise, as it seemed to go on forever at first, the feeling of endless days and nights of unhappy, grizzling child is so hard to cope with when you can't help them moresad

shabbatheGreek Mon 08-Oct-12 11:41:02

Oh aye he is prattling on about how lucky us dole dossers are. Would love to have one attempt at punching him in the face or kneeing him in the nuts grin

triplets Mon 08-Oct-12 11:55:25

He`d need low slung nuts with your short legs Shabs (said in posh accent) grin
Welcome to our new victims friends, did you bring cake??

shabbatheGreek Mon 08-Oct-12 12:23:35

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Trips....remember 'Its not the size of the dog in the fight its the size of the fight in the dog!!'

<<realises she has just called herself a dog and hopes no bugger else notices>>

KateShmate Mon 08-Oct-12 16:04:02

Ahh hahaha thanks bubba !
No cake am afraid triplets , but I would say that it was a sensible time to start on the wine?

Well I will do you a little inventory of my children.. smile
3YO triplets,
a 5YO (just started school)
and a 6YO
All girls!

That's about it for me!

<<hides in a corner trembling at the thought of daughters>>

Chopstheduck Mon 08-Oct-12 19:05:41

<<hides behind Shabs>>

5 girls, wow! I've always found my one daughter incredibly hard work! I have a deal on with Shabs to swap her for Tom but Shabs ran away

Are they all very girly? Dd was into pink, dresses, etc a that age but now toying with emo stuff- eek!

KateShmate Mon 08-Oct-12 19:43:27

Ah see I would find boys really hard - we do girls best ;) 99% of people always ask 'Ooh I bet you're desperate for a boy', but we're so used to girls that we wouldn't know what to do with a boy!
Its funny how my girls are all so different really Chops
DD1 is girly but not 'pink obsessed' which is nice, loves crafts and dressing up but more than happy to get her hands dirty!
DD2 is crazy - a total tom boy! When it was that crazy torrential rain/flooding weather, we stuck her outside in her swimming costume - she loved it!
DTrips aren't particularly girly or tom-boyish really, pretty similar to DD1 - one minute they want to dress head to toe in pink and shower themselves in glitter, the next minute 'girly toys' are 'babyish'!

bubby64 Mon 08-Oct-12 19:46:33

WOW!! Hats off to you Kate, never will I complain about my two again... no, take that back, I don't think not complaining about my two would be possible...Just wait til they are teenagers...all that PMT in the same housegrin<<shudders at the thought>>>

Chopstheduck Mon 08-Oct-12 20:06:24

They sound fab, Kate!

Bubby, that's mean! My first thought as that too though! grin dd can be so hormonal already. She can be very sweet sometimes too though.

With the boys, hormones just usually equals them beating the crap out of each other, and I can put headphones on and leave them to it grin

<<plonks down dutchapple cake, courtesy of ds1 - its actually rather good!>>

KateShmate Mon 08-Oct-12 20:12:11

Oooh don't remind me - stuff the PMT, think about the shopping money they will all want!
And all the sleepovers, and the teenage strops and back-chatting! ....

Chopstheduck Mon 08-Oct-12 20:34:35

Ooh just wait til they discover Primark!

triplets Mon 08-Oct-12 22:49:22

Triple trouble teens, they are going to be the end of me.
I am in bed with my shoulders up round my ears with stress.
Dd against my wishes brings a friend home from school.
They disobey me and clear off in the pouring rain in their uniforms, no coat.
The friends mother phones ranting where is her dd.
Then boys friend turns up.
Girls return.
I now have 5 x`s 14yr olds in the house.
The walls are shaking to My Chemical Romance.
The walls and cat are pitted with BB bullets by boys friend Harry.
Mother turns up to collect daughter, goes off in a huff.
My dd says "God, what the hell, why are you all so mean" and storms off upstairs.
We all eat supper whilst friend Harry plays x box, he apparently is locked out until his mother returns from work.
BB`s are being fired from the bedroom window.
Dh loses it and asks friend to take his gun and himself home.
He does neither.
All four teens sit in the kitchen watching Simpsons.
Peace at last, we settle down to watch Brits Award from last night.
Screams from the kitchen, Harry has fired and hit Becca.
She pulls tablecloth and two bowls of coco pops and milk go everywhere.
I scream.
Harry runs home.
I scream "bloody kids, get all this cleaned up and get to your beds".
Dd flicks back hair and says,"what the hell, what did we do, chill out"
And all this goes on and Dk (dh for the newbies) is still watching Brits Awards.
Save me me.

Put the 3 of them over your knee and slap their arses really hard OR the back of their legs - that hurts even more. Thats what my Mam would have done with me and I have no doubt your Mam would have done with you Trips.

Kids are bloody hard work these days - I blame it all on stuff like X Factor (sound like my Nan) grin

Tom gave me the rolling eye look tonight....I just looked at him and he said 'What? What now?' without looking again I said 'You have homework, your homework has to be done tonight....I HAD TO DO HOMEWORK, I PASSED MY GCSE's AND O LEVELS, SO GET UP OFF YOUR LAID BACK ARSE AND GET IT DONE!!!' grin

It was done!


triplets Mon 08-Oct-12 23:34:40

Trouble is Shabs, I am shouting in three directions..............its driving me insane, they are sooooooooo selfish, no wonder I can`t sleep!

triplets Mon 08-Oct-12 23:36:34

and I must stop saying the f word when provoked, even in a posh accent......tis no excuseblush

oh no..........what will the newbies think of me shock

shabbatheGreek Mon 08-Oct-12 23:45:29

I dont know how you do it Trips - I am in awe of you. Maybe a cattle prod, some Mace or a stun gun would help grin

triplets Mon 08-Oct-12 23:51:02

or a one way ticket to Faliraki Shabs!!
Kale Nits xx

FuriousP Mon 08-Oct-12 23:55:59

Trips, lock all your lot out so they go round someone else's house and drive them mad for a change!
My 2 watched the film Prometheus tonight with DH in the dining/xbox/ tv room. homework done beforehand and bags packed before 2hrs of peace for me in the living room, bliss

shabbatheGreek Mon 08-Oct-12 23:57:07

You are only going to my beloved Faliraki if I am coming with you Trips xxxx
