Another thread girls, can't believe we're here already!

KLou111 Fri 15-Feb-13 13:49:53


Just been to the soft play up the road, and loads of kids there this morning (20+) normally just the 4 of us.

Anyway, Euan had been playing for about 1.5 hours, and got to lunch time so was only Euan and a lovely little 3 year old.

My friends little girl is a week younger than Euan but not walking yet so she put her in the soft play as all the other kids had gone to eat, and we went and sat watching them inside the play bit.
Anyway, this other lad came in, pushed my friends little girl, to which my friend told him off, then he poked Euan in the eye and Euan cried, so I told him not to be mean.
Then another little girl about 4 came in and I was chatting with her, and the original lovely little lad came over to me and said the other one had tried to push him over.
Then Euan came down the slide and the bully lad was pulling at his clothes, so his mum came in and told him off.

About 2 mins later, the little girl is with Euan on the top level as he is crying his head off and the bully lad had him in the corner (not touching him, just blocking him), so I went over and got him and the little fucker had bitten Euan on the cheek so fucking hard he had blue, yes a fucking blue complete set of teeth marks on his cheek!!! Well, I went off my fucking tits!!! My friend was below us and said is everything ok and I said no, that little shit has bitten Euan.

I was shaking I was so angry!

I went over to his mum and showed her and told her and she went and got her son while I took Euan to the bar to get some ice with my friend.
Thankfully he hadn't broken the skin, and the teeth marks have gone, but he does have a round bruise now.
I obviously couldn't go too mad at the mum as it might've been the other way round, and you can't watch them ALL the time, but I was so angry.
Just got home and rob not happy, and said I should've perhaps said something when he was pushing them around the first time, but to be fair the mum told him.

So angry!!

Little fella is now fast asleep, looked so painful hmm

Just seen the pics on Facebook, my god whatever bit him? Looks like a massive size mouth! And how hard must it have been for the kid to actually get all euans cheek in his mouth and bite! Poor poor little lad. I'm all for kids learning what not to do, and an tolerate pushing and bickering, but that's gone way too far! What did the mother have to say? I would be totally mortified. More than mortified. Words can't explain how awful it must have been for him, nd you

lizandlulu Fri 15-Feb-13 17:30:13

Sorry, your above post wasn't there when I started writing. No I know what you mean bout not going off too much at the mother, I don't think I would, but my god, if the kids doing that he needs to be watched sbit more closely

KLou111 Sun 17-Feb-13 13:05:35

Hello ladies, well Euans face looking a lot better, and not bothering him which is good. Still annoyed, but what do you do except give lots of cuddles!!
Well, he's just gone down in his new bed for a nap OMG! He's not had a nap in anything other than the car or on the sofa for over a week so am chuffed! I had to stay for a bit til he fell asleep like a few weeks ago, but at least he's gone off smile
Fingers crossed it's as easy at bedtime!

Is it tomorrow you go on your jollies Liz? Have a fantastic time!! Bet you can't wait to get some sun! Sunny here but very cold.

Off to see some friends this afternoon for a cuppa. Not sure if the right time will arise, but we want to ask them if they will be 'God parents'.
We obviously didn't have him christened, or have a naming ceremony, and we had to go and update our wills on Tuesday, and one of the questions was where he would go if we died. We'd not thought about it tbh, so bar Robs brother and wife, these are the only other 2 we trust, and would bring Euan up similar to how we would.
Problem is with robs brother is that his wife is Thai and they want to retire there, so we don't want to restrict them if they want to go sooner. By the time they retire, Euan will be of age to cope by himself. We really didn't like to talk about it, but we need to sort something. Actually am very nervous, it's quite a big thing isn't it?

What you guys up to?

lizandlulu Sun 17-Feb-13 15:13:31

Ys it is a bit decision. It's awful to think about. What happens to kids who's parents die, they have willing family to take them, but no plans put in place previously? Do they go into care even if say, grandparents want to have them?

Violet and lulu have god parents, but I would expect my mum and dad to bring both of them up if something ever happened to both of us.

Yes holiday tomorrow, still not packed properly, but not leaving my house till 10.30 in the morning to got plenty of time, I have tackled my mountain of ironing, so at least all my clothes are ready to be packed.

Must remember to paint my toe nails.

I'm glad his face is looking better. It's still looks sore tho. Bless him, I can't stop thinking about it!

KLou111 Sun 17-Feb-13 17:04:34

I think they go to the grandparents if nothing is in place Liz.

They said yes smile Not straight away as we didn't want them to answer straight away, we wanted them to talk about it. But we were in the car home no longer than 5 grinmins and they told us they would and would do us proud should anything happen. So happy, they are so lovely with him. We turned up and they'd bought him a lovely little pair of jammies for his holibobs bless them. Little shortie ones smile

Hope having plenty of time in the morning doesn't come and bite you on the ass Liz ha ha!

Well, sleep went great. I usually go into Euans room (when he was last sleeping in there for lunch time nap) and he'd wake as soon as I went in. Went in today, putting his clothes away, he stirred, looked at me and turned over and went back to sleep. Thing is, I was actually trying to wake him as we were going out!
Then he wasn't happy with me, he wanted to stay in bed!
Fingers crossed for tonight smile

KLou111 Sun 17-Feb-13 19:15:03

Straight to sleep....fingers crossed......

lizandlulu Sun 17-Feb-13 21:34:09

I know klou, I will think I have got loads of time, hen end up running about like a headless chicken!!

BLess him, did you have to stay ith him while he fel asleep?

How long till you go? How warm is it going to be? Every forecast I look at says a different thing. Some say rain and 13 degrees.some say sunny and 19. Won't know till we get there.

KLou111 Mon 18-Feb-13 10:02:05

We go Thursday smile Meant to be anything between 25-30 in the day, 15-20 at night!

All I know is liz, we'll all ne warmer than here! Have a fab time!!

All good here, bar a little waking blip at 12.30am as Euan had found the gap in between the side rail and foot of the bed and kept getting out (I moved the siderail to meet the foot and he didn't click there was then a space at the head as I moved the chair there), we got 6.15 then back off til 6.45 smile So we're getting there!

Very chatty this morning, just on way to drop him at robs parents and he's very happy today, so that's good.
His face looking a lot better too. Hope it's gone by holiday, don't want that on his photos!!

KLou111 Tue 19-Feb-13 14:08:36

Anyone out there........???

Well a second successful night, not a peep from Euan til 6am, but that was hit for the day hmm

Fast asleep in bed now, been that way since 1. Am still having to lie with him for 10 mins til he nods off, but would rather that than an overtired grumpy soul!

Had a nice walk in the sun earlier, were almost home, walked past the park, and 2 mins later Euan wanted out of hum buggy (we thought to walk) and he ran, yes ran, back to the park lol!! He was on the swing for about 15 mins and didn't want to get off!

Just been packing, not got as much as u thought which is

KLou111 Tue 19-Feb-13 14:11:20

Bloody phone.

.....which is good. Still got robs case to pack and only have half a pack if nappies, the smellies and his clothes to put in, and have 10kg for Euan we could use, so may shove some toys in.

Euans face looking a lot better, just a pale red ring with slight bruising.

How's everything Xxx

Iwish Thu 21-Feb-13 12:46:14

Hope you both enjoy your holidays!! (Not jealous at all envy )

lizandlulu Fri 22-Feb-13 19:18:48

Hiya, I'm back. I know your on holiday klou, but just thought I would let you know I find it dead odd to think that you was in he same airport as me just a few days after!!!

Hope your having a good time, 25-30 sounds bloody warm!

And I hope the plane trip goes ok.

We had a good time, she cried a tiny bit on the plane out, played abit then went to sleep for a hour.

On the way back today tho, she screamed for a good 20 mins cause she didn't want the belt on. Made herself nearly sick, got me and her all hot and sweaty. Then went to sleep for an hour.

All in all, not too bad!

How are you iwish? Is Joshua sleeping better?

lizandlulu Tue 26-Feb-13 08:06:51

Morning all, it took me ages to find this thread cause it went out of my 'ones I'm on'. Are mumsnet keeping it somewhere new? I found the old full thread and he to to click on that and find this from there.

How are you iwish?

Iwish Tue 26-Feb-13 09:21:39

Welcome back liz! Glad you had a good holiday. Was it warm?
Did violet get back into her usual routine when you got back?

Yeh he's getting to sleep ok now but still waking in the night crying. He goes quiet after a few seconds so I don't have to get out of bed but he still bloody wakes me lol. Wish I knew what he was crying for tho.

I'm off to see my cousin today, she's ttc so wondering if she has some exciting news for me lol.
What you up to?

lizandlulu Tue 26-Feb-13 18:09:34

Did she have any news today?? Would it beer first?

Re the hol, yes it was fairly warm, rain on tues, but warm enough for just t shirts in the daytime. Yes she got back into her routine, she didn't go far out of it really,be was in the rooms from about 9 pm, so 8 pm here. She's started to go to bed slightly later anyway, it's getting on for. 7 more and more. Right now she's in the bath so will be 7 tonight too.

I wonder why he's crying too, teeth? Hot cold, the usual suspects? Or maybe it's now just his habit to wake for a few secs? If you put him to bed later, does he still wake? Like if you've been out for a mel or something and he doesn't go to bed till 9, would he still wake?

Iwish Tue 26-Feb-13 20:38:43

Noooo she had no news sad. But she did tell me that her sister is ttc too smile
Had a fab day with her and Joshua, we used to hang out all the time and I miss it.

Wow 7pm, Joshua is in bed 7:30 usually but today it was 7:45.

No matter when he goes to bed he still cries. If he goes too late or doesn't sleep in the day he's a nightmare and is up even more in the night and gets up earlier in the morning.

lizandlulu Wed 27-Feb-13 13:14:13

Violet is like that, the later she goes, the worse she settles. Usually anyway.

Oh it would be nice for them to have babies together, my sil had a baby girl yesterday, Elsie. I am slightly jealous as she has an elder son who's 3 and now a newborn girl. It's what I wanted sad what did I do to deserve 2 girls!!!!

Iwish Wed 27-Feb-13 19:55:23

It would be v nice if they had them close. We are ttc in may (mad people i know haha) so would be quite close in age smile

I would like a girl next but I think we will have another boy. Nick had 6 brothers....

One of my friends at work gave me a little kitchen for Joshua today, he LOVES it.

What does violet like to play with?

lizandlulu Wed 27-Feb-13 21:33:50

I don't think it matters wheat other people had, I had a brother, Chris has a brother, my 2 aunts both have 2 boys each, and I get 2 girls!

Violet loves to play ith kitchen stuff!! That is about all she does play with. She would rather stick CDs in to the printer, or climb the sofa, or pull all the magazines out from under the table, or empty my cupboards than play with toys. She doesnt have any on her pushchair like lulu did, it just doesn't interest her.

Iwish Thu 28-Feb-13 09:28:08

We will have to wait and see then, would love one of each. grin

Joshua has pots and pans and kettles with tea cups lol. He alo has a Hoover and a cleaning trolley haha.

We are thinking about a few days away in centre parks. Don't fancy going abroad this year. Fancy a little log cabin. Have you been?

lizandlulu Thu 28-Feb-13 14:01:39

Yes went when I was expecting violet. The accommodation was brilliant, really modern and new looking. It was really good, the only downside was having to book everything if you want to do the extra activities. It takes abit of organising. But lovely if you want to go and just chill out in the pool. Which one was you thinking?

I know it can be expensive tho, try and go in term time, it's cheaper. When I was looking for breaks away earlier in the year I priced it up there and it was. Over £400 for 3 nights.

Iwish Thu 28-Feb-13 20:27:15

I was thinking about going the the one at the Lake District. It's only about 1 hour and a half away.
I just fancy somewhere that's away from home where we can do some nice walks, bike rides and swimming. 3 or 4 days in about may or June I think. smile

How has your day been? We have been to the park today and to see my mum and dad. Had a lovely time and a bit of sunshine grin

lizandlulu Thu 28-Feb-13 21:13:35

Been fine today, apart form violet seems to think she is a 5 year old. I caught her earlier climbing out of her highchair onto one of the bar stools we have at the breakfast bar, she wants to sit on one of those all the time now and cries when I take her off.

Went into town this morning, costa as usual, supermarket, a friends house, same old. Can't believe it's Friday tomorrow, the weeks are just flying by.

Iwish Sun 03-Mar-13 16:29:00

Been to eureka this morning and Joshua loved it! He was into everything this time. He did get knocked over by an older boy tho, Joshua was stood there eating his biscuit and this boy was running really really fast and just run strait into him and knocked him strait on his back. Poor little poppet was crying his little heart out, he's never that upset bless him.

Went shopping at the Trafford centre yesterday with mum and Joshua to get a few things too.

What you been up to this weekend liz?

When's klou back?
