Hi everyone

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 09-Oct-08 17:26:33

well done T42, squeaver and co. I want you guys on my side. I reckon that might be an mn record for a new topic - nagging persistence is the key smile

hotcrosswerebunny Thu 09-Oct-08 17:27:34

Yaysmile Why didn't we think of that???

teafortwo Thu 09-Oct-08 17:29:15

Let's have a little party to celebrate!!!!

Glass of champagne anyone?????

fedupandisolated Thu 09-Oct-08 17:29:39

Hello everyone. One DS aged 5 and he's lovely. Would have liked more but my body just does not do pregnancy - and am 42 now and a single parent so unlikely there will be any more.

Jux Thu 09-Oct-08 17:32:05

Our dd is an only one too. It's made harder for her because neither of my brothers have (or will have) kids, and nor will dh's sister, so our dd is the last in the line of both families. She feels it quite badly sometimes sad

fedupandisolated - welcome! Here is a glass of France's finest - tonight and from now on I think you will be neither fed up or isolated - Cheers to Mumsnet for our lovely topic!!! And cheers to your lovely ds!

Jux - lets toast your dd too - and hope that between us on this new topic we can find solutions for her feeling more positive about her only status!!!

TSM - of course we are on your side!!! (All this champagne is practice for your upcoming wedding)

T42 - this is a hijack - I remember from a thread a while back that you were vaguely interested in the school my DD goes to - are you still thinking about it (given that inscription is at the beginning of December) and do you want any info or anything?

slayerette Thu 09-Oct-08 17:42:34

Checking in - one ds, 5 - lovely, lively, drives me mad at times! grin

CountessDracula Thu 09-Oct-08 17:44:05

Fantastic thanks bigtech!

I have one dd, just 6. Would love to have more but I don't think it will happen

CountessDracula Thu 09-Oct-08 17:45:17

Oh forgot
Am also very happy with one and in many ways I actually don't want more

Ambivelence - doncha love it?!

squeaver Thu 09-Oct-08 17:45:52

Oh I've got a tear in my eye grin grin

I think it was TFT's threat to decamp to Netmums that did it!

<<looks around>> wow it's nice and roomy in here isn't it?

<<grabs comfy chair by the window>>

Jux - sorry to hear about your circs. Start a thread and we'll all pile in with advice.

frasersmummy Thu 09-Oct-08 17:47:08

oh well done.. can we moan about how much time we have had to sit on the floor and play pirates today now??

OsmosisBanana Thu 09-Oct-08 17:47:19

I have one child and a step daughter. Am I in?

squeaver Thu 09-Oct-08 17:48:31

Of course OB!

Frasersmummy - yes and Play-doh! the relentless rollling and cutting out shapes.

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 09-Oct-08 17:48:42

Me too Osmosis.... I was allowed in (we'll add a different dimension apparently smile)

OsmosisBanana Thu 09-Oct-08 17:52:13

I don't have to do much 'joining in' with DD yet as she's only nearly 2 (yuk, nearly a Charlie and Lola quote!) but i cut my teeth as it were, on SD who is 9 and thinks I'm in the bee's knees whereas her Dad is 'boring'.

If only she knew!!

teafortwo Thu 09-Oct-08 18:02:29

Hello everyone - sorry just popped out for five minutes and you all arrived - it is always the way, hey!!!

So so so...Have you all got some champagne??? It was Anna who supplied it... sent it over to Paris in her friend's helicopter!

Oh Squeaver - nice hat - I didn't realise we were dressing formally for this party - but hey why not!!!!

(To the side - hey Anna! WOW! I am impressed at you remembering that!!!! YES - I am interested in school - and have lots of questions to ask you on the subject... Would you mind if I set up a thread in 'living overseas' a bit later or maybe tomorrow - because I need to go and make my only some dinner (rl) and (mnl) serve all these people their next glass of champagne)

Anna8888 Thu 09-Oct-08 18:05:30

Sure - or you can just CAT me and we can take it offline, I'm not sure it's really of general interest. You might want to come over one day at pick-up time and for a play in the park so you can get a feel for the ambiance?

teafortwo Thu 09-Oct-08 18:06:20 nly-have

Sorry - Icouldn't resist!!!! blush

teafortwo Thu 09-Oct-08 18:08:31

Yes - good thinking Anna!!!!

(Sneaks away from the party - for a few minutes to find out how to CAT someone)

Anna8888 Thu 09-Oct-08 18:10:24

Do you want me to CAT you? Since I have paid for CAT... smile
