Hi

I know there is already a thread for March 2005 babies but it seems really well established and everyone seems to know each other so I didn't want to butt in!

Hope there is someone out there who fancies chatting about their March 05 baby and what they are up to.

My DD seems to come up with new antics every day and has been really shocking me lately by having a couple of shocking tantrums! Anyone know what I am talking about or are yours little darlings?

I always said that I didn't want my DD to be placid and that I wanted her to have _personality but I wonder now how I am going to cope on the day when she throws herself on the floor in a supermarket and won't get up!!

DD is starting to develop a very strong personality and is great to watch. She loves to have fun and dance and really loves going to nursery where she is with children of the same age. I wonder if anyone could give me advice though on whether she is old enough to go to a playgroup? I would really like to take her but am worried about how she will get on with children who are a lot older than her?

Hope for a response soon.

Hi welcome to mumsnet!

I think you should just butt in to the march 05 thread. They would love to chat with you.

Of course the rest of us would as well. So... deep breath! Take the plunge. I promise they won't bite....well unless you say something contentious lol.

I have 5 children incl 2.6yo DTs (darling twins).

Have fun Oh the tantrum thing............ welcome to the world of parenting lol!!!!!!

Oh yes.... take her to playgroup. She'll have a ball and you'll make lots of new friends to share the "poo" talks with lol

Thanks - I will give it a try. Seems hard when a thread is so long and everyone knows each other.

I only have the one DD and can't believe now that I was hoping for twins! I must have thought it was going to be a doddle - lol. Now when I read in the papers about people with 10 or 11 kids I wonder how the hell they cope. I suppose it is just a case of having to.

Thanks for your message.

I know what you mean the MArch thread does seem long and everyone knows everyone's history.

I have a march 2005 DD, and if you want I come onto the thread with you and we can always talk to each other

MarsLady Mon 14-Aug-06 20:56:29

Andyj.... I have twins. Believe me..... twins and doddle just don't go in the same sentence lol.

I hope you two, Andy and Madrose, jump right in to the March thread. Some of them won't have been there long. The Feb 04 thread that I was on seems to have disappeared into the ether lol.

Don't forget the rest of the forum though. Lots of newbies and oldies there. (Oh and if you change your mind about twins Andy... check out the multiple threads.... that'll put you back on the straight and narrow lol)

I cant remember if my DS was born in 05 or 04 Hes 2. It was deffo March though.

AndyJ Tue 15-Aug-06 20:31:50

Think your DS must be an 04 baby as my DD is only 16 months old. Don't worry sometimes when I am asked her date of birth I say 2006! Childbirth and rearing does really seem to do something odd to the brain! When I went back to work when my DD was 10 months old I didn't know what day it was half the time - definitely couldn't remember all the boring details of what I was supposed to be doing whilst I was actually at work.

Come and join the March thread! Everyone's very friendly (honest) .

As Leo says, it's quiet at the moment so probably a good time to join us - sometimes it can get very busy and it can be hard to keep up!

at Tamba!

AndyJ Tue 15-Aug-06 20:50:35

Thanks BonyM I am really pleased to have had such a welcome from you both. I have just joined the thread and hope to get to know you all soon. (Don't know how many of you there are!!!)
