I'm finding things a bit hectic myself at the moment. DS1 and DS2 are both changing schools after the summer and J is keeping me busy as always. I do try and keep up with the threads but I don't post as often as I would like.

How's everyone else doing?

Hello thread and lurkers

Hello new thread. It's been a long time since I've seen a thread die and lily I like your style!

Zamboni Sat 05-Jul-14 17:38:54

I turn my back for 5 minutes to feed DC and Lily has killed the thread. Well played!

Lily we are watching suits. I fancy both of them!!

Hello thread.

I read as much as I can. O starts nursery in 2 weeks and I have a week off work this week to start settling in seasons and take him on a day trip to the seaside. Any nursery tips/advice?

Evening all.

Glad the pox seems to be abating ever so slightly zamboni and I really hope that F avoids it bp

Good work on the dates ladies!! I am obsessed by both hour styles lily and chasing!

Busy day here. Play date this morning, granny and grampa this afternoon, park and fish and chips. P is well and truly giving up milk now - no lunch time bottle and no bedtime bottle either. I keep offering but now long should I do that for?

My mum and dad keep talking about p not being a baby anymore and being. Proper wee girl. Makes me mostly proud and a little sad.

Also today I chopped p's nap by half and it still took her over an hour to get to sleep. Not quite sure what to do about it. Mostly she is happy alone and singing so it shouldn't bother me.

Enjoy your holidays stunt!!!!

Evening quiche!

Zamboni Glad to hear S is perking up. Good luck tonight BP. Happy hols teamStunt.

We've just had a lovely birthday BBQ with pals out in the East Neuk countryside. My pal has rescued some ex battery hens so J was delighted with 3 dogs and a flock full of chooks to play with. His chicken noise is quite realistic now! She has a hammock too so he's learnt to say "up you go" and "you can do it". smile He was the only tot there (everyone else kids were teens) so got a lot of fuss, especially after his bath when he was tottering round the garden with fluffy hair, sleepsuit and wellies. We've just snuck him into bed now.

YellowWellies Sat 05-Jul-14 21:57:32

Pass we offered milk for 2-3 nights at bedtime, after I weaned him - he didn't want it, so we stopped. That was in March.

BigPigLittlePig Sat 05-Jul-14 22:11:04

"Mummy wee wee" - Fs first sentence smile

Decoded = mummy I want to go on the swing (wheeee wheeeeeee)

Thank god for calpol, and pub-cats. We managed to stay out til 9 in the end, both girls crashed out in bed now, I'm not far behind.

I'm waiting for gory details, Lily and Chasing...

Enjoy your hols Stunt.

Qq - do we all qualify for the minor ailments scheme or is that Scotland only? I ask because we get calpol, bonjela and nurofen from the chemist for free.

That's interesting yw. I think I should let it go. Apparently by nephew stopped very suddenly months ago so I think actually she has hung on quite a while. Should I offer her milk in a cup?

YellowWellies Sat 05-Jul-14 22:16:38

J's first was "bye bye choo choo". He still says it every time we get off a train smile .

His chat is a bit blue at the mo - "wellies on" sounds like willies on. "Makka pakka" sounds like makka bugger, "hat on" sounds like hard on and "chicken pock pock" sounds like chicken fuck fuck blush .

YellowWellies Sat 05-Jul-14 22:18:07

Pass he has a big beaker of koko milk and nesquik every day, along with his calcium and D vits that's all the milk the dietician reckons he needs.

Passmethecrisps Sat 05-Jul-14 22:19:52


I am pretty certain p says bugger - I wouldn't be surprised.

She is starting to do two word sentences more and more now. Three word if you include mummy or please. So, "more cheese, please" or "mummy, TV, please"

bp your afternoon sounds blissful. Love pub kitties!

YellowWellies Sat 05-Jul-14 22:20:19

As for minor ailments that's just Scotland, because I've got a bottle in his nursery bag, one upstairs, one downstairs - I'm wary of getting them all from minor ailments as they'll think I'm ODing him confused

Passmethecrisps Sat 05-Jul-14 22:21:24

P would happily live on cheese and has a yogurt ever day. That's probably enough calcium, do you think?

Passmethecrisps Sat 05-Jul-14 22:22:16

Haha! I had the same concern but DH has got quite chummy with the pharmacist thankfully!

YellowWellies Sat 05-Jul-14 22:26:52

I think the rough rule of thumb is they start 2 word sentences once they've got a vocab of 100 words and 3 word sentences once they hit 200.

I've got a pal from toddlers who is actively trying to "teach" her DD 3 word sentences and is telling her off for being naughty when she can't do it - yet never really chats to her kid in a way likely to increase her vocab (the "no because I said so" type). Poor little soul. DH calls her dog trainer Mummy. sad

I WISH we got free calpol! I've single handedly funded the staff bonuses at the calpol factory this year (only v slight exaggeration).
