I hope nobody minds, but I went and started a new thread blush.

Sorry, headgirls!

Hi! I can't leave this thread dead like this: it's the only way I can say hi to PD.. Are you there PD? How's ...^stuff^?

MandaHugNKiss Mon 11-Nov-13 23:38:16

Oh, let it be known that I shall not attend UNLESS you come! grin

Not least because I have NO gear. Please may I share/borrow yours? wink

lisbapalea Mon 11-Nov-13 22:29:36

I too spend too much on mn - dh just about tolerates it but it does make his eyes roll! I mainly lurk, but can foresee more posting now I'm on mat leave again...

Glad Joe is sleeping at last! We were actually incredibly lucky with dd who slept through pretty reliably from very early (10wks I think!). I now have the fear that DC2 will be our non-sleeper and I am slightly terrified as we're just not used to really crap sleep!

PacificDogwood Mon 11-Nov-13 21:45:46

lisba, I spend far too much time on MN - I find it's something to do that engages me but allows for doing other stuff (like toddler wrangling) at the same time.

Yes, terrible sleeper Joe eventually slept. He was almost 2 before it all fell in to place. Nothing particularly clever I/we did, he was just eventually ready, hallelujah!
Are you struggling? You know the livewires are the clever ones, don't you wink?

PacificDogwood Mon 11-Nov-13 21:43:09

Manda grin

I heard! I know!! <taps nose and winks exaggeratedly>
And a certain birthday - all v exciting!
Huge congratulations to you too xx.
Hope you have a fantastic day and decades of marital bliss smile

And I heard about the planned camping escapade - I have gear, mucho, mucho camping gear, please may I come??

MandaHugNKiss Mon 11-Nov-13 21:05:24

It's true, it's true!

A little bird mentioned PD was here and I had to see it with mine own eyes!

PD if only you would come over to the darkside, even if it were to just hang on the MMM2010 group, you would know all kinds of exciting things such as... I am getting married on Friday!

And, y'know, we're gonna try and arrange a meet come reunion camping type escapade.

lisbapalea Mon 11-Nov-13 20:42:57

Yep am on a Dec 2013 thread but I don't rely on it quite as much as I did on these threads when dealing with DD! I am sure the 2013 thread is just as good, I just don't seem to use it or mn in general in the same way I used to!

Pacific I often see your name on other threads (am not stalking, honest!) and it always reminds me of the March2010 threads!

Do I remember rightly that you had a bit of a tricky sleeper? Did that settle down in the end?

PacificDogwood Mon 11-Nov-13 20:34:16

Yeah! Another March 2010er grin.

This resuscitation is going better than I dared to hope!

lisba, how exciting! I hope you and bump are well too. Are you on a December 2013 thread then?

lisbapalea Mon 11-Nov-13 20:30:19

I'm still lurking!
Am expecting dc2 in 5 weeks' time and keep casting my mind back to those days 4 years ago when the March 2010 threads kept me sane!

PacificDogwood Mon 11-Nov-13 20:28:28

Congratulations! grin

Boys rock.
Hope you are all well.
We are well, thanks. My boys are now 10, 9, 5 and, well, 3 1/2 (but you knew that last one). 3 in school, 1 to go grin.

This is like some strange school reunion grin.

scooby26 Mon 11-Nov-13 20:25:22

Pacific!!! How the devil r u?!!!!

I now have two boys!

PacificDogwood Sun 10-Nov-13 22:33:52

Hello?? ^Hello? Can you hear me??

scooby26 Sun 02-Jun-13 09:07:22


DS2 arrived via water birth last Friday- a whopping 9lb 12!

All well x

simplysarahandco Tue 02-Apr-13 12:06:21

RKD, hope you guys had a fab time celebrating the big 3!!!!!!! cant believe were thru the birthday month already.

Welcome mummy pig, its very quiet here these days x x x x

Arcadie Mon 01-Apr-13 09:46:51

Happy birthday to Phulldia... Octopod cake made. Presents about to be opened. Mummy pig, you're very welcome to join us, but we don't post much these days.

MummyPig24 Sun 31-Mar-13 02:08:11

Hi everyone. Can I join in? Fairly new to mn, didn't know these boards existed. I have a daughter, born 16.03.2010, can't believe she has hit the big 3! I also have a son who is 5.

EarnestDullard Tue 12-Mar-13 14:11:29

Gah, I've been rubbish at keeping up with the birthdays this year. Having a 2nd DC makes me wonder what I did with all my time when I only had one silly question, I was on MN most of the time grin And as for those of you with three or more, you must be positively superhuman.

I can't quite believe it's been 3+ years since we all started this journey with our little ones. They'll be at school before we know it. Where does the time go?

Huge congrats carcassonne, wonderful news, hope you're feeling well.

Sorry to hear about your Mum Ruby, I hope she's still improving.

BPM Gosh, life is certainly throwing it all at you. I hope you've got lots of support, sounds like you're coping fabulously though.

Gotta go, baby is waking up. We've just started solids. Lots of fun (and mess!). Love to all x

simplysarahandco Sun 10-Mar-13 11:17:33

Her RKD!!!!! fab to 'see' you on here, can not belive three years have passed so fast!

Happy mothers day ladies x x x xhope you are all haveing a relaxing day x x x x

Arcadie Thu 07-Mar-13 13:42:16

Happy birthday in absentia to IWCAS - we miss you, but it's lovely to "see" your little beauty on FB and to Earnest's little girl too - (I think that's your current name change) Anyhooooo I don't come on here much but this time of year obviously makes me remember back to 3 years ago with a little lump in my throat at the daily/hourly check to see who'd had the next baby. And now they're turning THREE!!!! Beeee-limey.

evitas Wed 20-Feb-13 23:43:41

Happy Birthday to ssararhandco and carcassonne's little ones. I hope they had a great day.

I am well, thanks ssararhandco. Just very busy and trying to balance full time job and family.


simplysarahandco Fri 15-Feb-13 20:24:37

carcc- we most certainly do share a birthday, 19th feb, mickey mouse cake to be made, presents bought (mickey mouse and fireman sam) all good, how bout your plans> ? Congrats on the pregnancy- fab news x x x smile smile

You dd sounds very amusing x x x xsmile

Hi evitas x x how r u ?

evitas Fri 15-Feb-13 10:07:31

Hello from sunny Portugal

Thanks everyone.

BPM my parents divorced when I was 3. I think it was the best thing that happened to my mum. Have you got any family firends nearby to help you? Stay strong. Glad your DD is doing well.

ruby hurray for the job!

carcassone congratulations! Fantastic news :-)

I hope everyone is doing well.

carcassonne Wed 13-Feb-13 15:45:24

(squiggleywiggler on a name change)

BPM sounds like you are feeling positive about the future despite having has such a tumultuous time. So glad DD is doing well.

Happy belated birthday Vincent. Sof is 3 next week - how are birthday preps going Sarah? We share a 3rd b'day don't we?

DD is a riot at the mo. Finally sleeping a bit better - not through the night every night, but generally better and so funny. She never stops talking and some of the things she says. I found her explaining to her little friend that 'some ladies have babies in their tummies. My mummy helps them and the mans give them a relaxing bath and a cuddle so it isn't too hurty and then they get in the birth ooool [pool] and the baby comes out of their bottoms and everyone laughs.'!! Joys of being a doula's daughter.

I'm now 6 weeks pregnant and feeling excited about no 2 if only someone would tell me how on earth to do it. Not many know in RL so mum's [not] the word on FB etc.

Ruby glad to hear things are going well with your mum.

Bulletproofmum Tue 12-Feb-13 10:43:54

Yep thanks - she certainly isn't like most nearly three year olds. apparently at nursery last week she was bandaging her friends. More administering her tender care she was offering them some morphine!
