We get 'what's that noise?' a lot, and the whole 'my want xyz' only to howl with outrage when said item is presented to him!

Happy Sunday, all. Had to share. Just heard, for the first time ever, the ultimate reward for everything - "I love my mummy, I happy." smile))))))

That is exciting fizz. I looked at the thread but live miles from the pick-up points. Let us know what it's like.

I've just read the thread about a MN'er cupping her CO's know by mistake - it's v funny.

Nothing much going on here. Same old, same old.

Exciting Fizz, when do you get hold of it?

I'm back at work now after a lovely 2 weeks off for the move. Admittedly only mornings still, and only 6 weeks until leave, then maternity leave but I did enjoy my time off. I'm now busy making curtains for the house - M's room is done and I'm currently on our bedroom.

Am still loving the new place - and having a garden. M is beginning to learn about birds and other wildlife smile

DH got a job today! V relieved! I want to shop for sofas now though...

TwentiethCenturyGirl Wed 12-Jun-13 20:54:27

Congratulations Mr UBW! smile

I want to shop for sofas too. I've seen the one I like in John Lewis, however we need to save our pennies to buy it first...

GlaikitFizzog Wed 12-Jun-13 21:04:20

Namaste! Just been to my first yoga class. Feel all stretched and floaty.

Yay mr UBW! I love my sofa, al big a squishy!

I pck up the car on Saturday! Whoop!

Settling down to watch the apprentice! Wonder what the women will do to it to make me sad!

Kittycatcat Wed 12-Jun-13 22:22:21

Congrats mr ubw!

UnderwaterBasketWeaving Wed 12-Jun-13 23:31:00

Thanks all!

I have yoga envy now! Maybe I can find a summer holiday class. (Only 5 weeks, examining, and assignment and hopefully not ofsted to go!)

Daisy17 Thu 13-Jun-13 07:41:14

So pleased, UBW, and yes, hurrah for the end of term being in sight! (Sorry non teachers.....)

NomDeClavier Thu 13-Jun-13 08:41:10

Woohoo mrUBW!

And yes to the end of term, which for me is tomorrow (mwahaha) but I don't have a job for next year because no-one wants supply who plans to go off on ML in December so I'm slightly dreading it.

I have my second 12wk scan today. Fingers crossed pud behaves itself and everything is ok.

Daisy17 Thu 13-Jun-13 09:24:07

Good luck, Nom!

Kittycatcat Thu 13-Jun-13 19:55:55

How did it go nom?

S fell again today. Another gash to the head. I should have taken him to hosp but I took him to the nurse at docs thinking she would send me to hospif she thought it was bad. She put sterile strips on but I'm now thinking it needed stitches hmm

NomDeClavier Thu 13-Jun-13 20:22:45

Pud was a PITA. Perfect ceph LOA but couldn't get the NT measurement. Have to go back again Tuesday to see if we can get it right this time. Any tips?

YoniHuman Thu 13-Jun-13 20:37:25

Poor S Kitty When DS was 3 he came off a scooter and gashed his forehead open on a concrete wall at preschool. (He still had the scar slap bang in the centre of his forehead). No stitches, A & E used glue and the sterile strips and it was pretty deep.

YoniHuman Thu 13-Jun-13 20:44:20

Nom Good Luck. Sorry I can offer no tips as I had to go back for the same reason with DD. They failed to get it the 2nd time too. I seem to recall I was then offered the option of an internal exam to get the measurement but I declined it as didn't think it was worth the risk. Hope your teat tempt is more successful.

YoniHuman Thu 13-Jun-13 20:45:57

blush autocorrect, reattempt not teat tempt.

ILikeToMoveItMoveIt Thu 13-Jun-13 21:05:44

I would imagine steri-strips are best because the lo would have to stay very still to stitch. I hope he's ok kitty. Both of my boys are constantly covered in cuts, bruises, and grazes. I don't think a week passes without me having to sign the accident book at pre school.

I think ds3 might have chicken pox. He's had about 10 or so spots come out today, so we'll see what the morning brings. Ds2 hasn't had it yet, so if ds3 has had it no doubt ds2 will be spotty shortly.

Can't help you there Nom as I haven't opted for nuchal measurements. Did the sonographer ask you to move round on the bed? I remember being scanned while on all fours.

Kittycatcat Thu 13-Jun-13 23:30:39

Don't drink too much. I was told to empty my bladder the third time. Also been told a can of coke and a mars bar helps! Good luck.

Morning all. I am WFH this morning (so MNing, obvs). Got woken up by J at 5.30 this morning. Went in to find her sitting up, pressed as far into the corner as she could to avoid the big pile of sick in the middle of her cot. It was quite dry and (TMI) full of entire slices of mushrooms she hadn't chewed or digested at all so my best guess is she had an indigestion vomit quite soon after we put her to bed. She seemed perfectly cheerful this morning and, after a bath, wolfed two bowls of ceral and a handful of tomatoes, and kept it down for the next 45 minutes until the childminder assistant arrived to pick her up at 7 (now we have moved the childminder does PICKUPS. It is AWESOME!). I'm feeling slightly guilty for sending her off in case she makes the other kids sick but I don't think she has a stomach bug - she's visibly poorly when she does, and she wouldn't have kept her breakfast down. Right? Or am I that awful mum who makes everyone else's kid sick? blush I did tell the CM assistant what I told you, and wrote it on her form, so I haven't lied...

UnderwaterBasketWeaving Fri 14-Jun-13 17:48:15

Was everything ok in the end, ecuse?

I've finally talked to the cm about preschool etc. she's a legend! She's busy studying for her diploma so that she can be accredited to do the 15hrs funded thing (I can't remember the official phrase). She basically said I should stop panicking, F should be able to stay with her till (and beyond) primary school, and if it appears that he'd benefit from some preschool hours then we should worry about that then.

I'm finding it hard to imagine him being ready for sitting down classroom type stuff anytime soon anyway (I know things will be different in 12-18mo). And I think I'm happier knowing he's "at home" in a family setting while he's really little.

Does that sound like a plan? Or will he be an untrained unteachable terror in primary school?!
