Happy Birthday to Moley and to my DD grin

DD had just said to my mum that she cant come today as "ive got all my friends here" - meaning toys!!!! grin

biglips Mon 01-Oct-07 08:50:54

well now the "terrible twos" is over (even though Tweenie was a good child - she had tantrums now and again)...let hope the age 3 is not bad too -im praying!!!!!!! grin as my SD was naughty when she hit the age 3.

Geog gave out the invites to his party at toddlers, he was dead excited but some of his 'mates' were a bit bewildered as to why he was giving them an envelope.
happy birthday to tweenie and moley. What did they get for their birthdays? I need some serious inspiration here.

Screaminglips Mon 01-Oct-07 22:22:24

i put the title "Here come the funny 3's" as my DD is so funny grin

Aww Geog...bless him.

Tweenie didnt really get a main pressie this year as we are really skint as Dp took over his boss's business a month ago and we are ssooo skint as a few cock up that his boss had done in the last month so hoping a good october. I got her a Dora lego play, a game, soft brand names toys, arty stuff, miniture dollies for her dolls house, shoes, a dress, a story teller book.....

Screaminglips Tue 02-Oct-07 20:54:07

i think Tobys bday is in Nov....im not sure! as its me Biglips...Poor Tweenie is wrecked!!! as she is ssoooooo tired since her bday as is all excited!.

Do u know if its a boy or girl?.....i found the girls names where easy as i was looking for unique girls names but i was struggling on the boys unique names...i had to ask my american friends to give me ideas.

Im taking Tweenie to her preschool's induction day tmrw @ 9.30am.....so unsure exactly when she will be starting but it be in October 07.

(We are gonna try for another baby next spring)

cazzybabs Tue 02-Oct-07 20:57:02

I did guess it was you! I was going to ask wehn you were planning another one - but it seemed a little rude!!!

No idea as to wether it is a boy or girl/

Ohh I thought Toby's birthday was on Oct - I might see if I can find it. It would be nice to remember him on that day.

Screaminglips Tue 02-Oct-07 20:59:13

Screaminglips Tue 02-Oct-07 21:06:53

cazzybabs Tue 02-Oct-07 21:08:38

Oh well found - just spent along time re-readins some of our old oct threads...how many people we have lost on the way is quite sad (or are we the sad ones who are left??)

Screaminglips Tue 02-Oct-07 21:12:45

No....Hotmama comes on now and again but she goes more on the DD2 postnatal one now..

Its nice to keep in touch though....and have u emailed to Maisiemog about the payment as she had been busy doing stuff lately

KathH Wed 03-Oct-07 21:09:29

Tobys birthday is 19 Oct. Hope everyone's ok.

Moley had an assortment of bob the builder stuff & bloody wiggles things, he's obsessed by them grin

cazzybabs Thu 04-Oct-07 19:14:25

Grace has said she is NOT going to her party, she is NOT opening her presents and is NOT having a cake and the only person she wants to come is the child who can't come bcause theey are on holiday! She has decreed she is going to the pub with daddy and they will drink beer.

Screaminglips Fri 05-Oct-07 09:08:47

lol!! Cazzybabs grin..... ooooh my dd is getting abit like that...abit of an attitude!... She tells me off when we go shopping together and im "NAUGHTY!!!"...eek!

On her bday...i was trying tocomb her hair as her hair is wavy and abit of curls too..she was messing about,i told her to stop but she carried on...so i said "Its not my fault if i hurt you!" (meaning scratch her with the comb) and her reply was "Its not my fault TOO!" shock

cazzybabs Sun 07-Oct-07 21:49:15

Well dd2 is 3. How did that happen - I feel quite sad...my toddler is no more!

Grace did go to her party and indeed sang happy birthday to me on the way there. we had it a local soft play place. God it was money well spent - so little stress. I think she had a good time but didn't enjot being sung happy birthday to. She also enjoyed opening her pressents - we only had a few friends so not many presents which worked out fine as she wasn't too over-whelmed with them all!

KathH Sun 07-Oct-07 21:50:46

So she didnt fancy the pub then?

cazzybabs Sun 07-Oct-07 22:04:14

Oh no - all of "her people" [us, grandparents, and god parent]went to the pub for lunch and Grace did indeed have some of daddy's beer.

KathH Sun 07-Oct-07 22:08:22

Thats ok - didnt want to think we had a lightweight in the Oct 04s! Please nobody ring social services but dh sometimes give moley a quick sip of his lager - moley is very fussy & only likes Stella.Mind you, my Gran used to like to tell the story of when I was about 2 or 3 and I was at my aunty's 21st & I went round dipping my dummy in everyone's drink. Apparently my dad's first words were to his Grandad "Give beer you bugger!" My dad denied this story until his dying day!

cazzybabs Sun 07-Oct-07 22:14:04

I see it has practise for univeristy - our dcs will be able to drink their peers under the table!

Screaminglips Sun 07-Oct-07 22:19:56

grin

what are you like u 2? grin

well i think Tweenie got a liking for Baileys as twice she find a glass if i had the baileys and is scraping the cream on the bottom of the glass grin

well poor tweenie been on a 3 day party bender and is now wrecked !!!

cazzybabs Sun 07-Oct-07 22:31:32

Oh no Grace likes bitter, champagne and olives! Strange child - well I mean clearly she likes chocolate, ice-cream, crisps, chips etc (she is not all freak) andis beginning to come round to the idea of marmite (much to dh's disgust!)

maisiemog Mon 08-Oct-07 21:55:56

Happy birthday all the threeees!!
No birthday here until Halloween.
Alfie thinks marmite is 'ucky', but I want him to like it, so I'm putting a teeny bit on the edge of his toast and will gradually increase it for the next five years, until he can buy it himself.
Where is Prettymum?? When is Shineads birthday?
I was laughing at Grace only inviting children who were out of the country. I'm inviting all the children in Tunisia to Alfie's birthday.
We're not having a party as such, we thought we would have a day out at a theme park with one set of grandparents and then see the other set on the following weekend and see my bruv, who is flying up to give Alfie some car things.
I'm recalling all the independent ladies (like in Destiny's Child's song) refusing help to put on shoes and coats and suchlike. Weeell! This week, Alfie has started to refuse help going down the stairs outside our flat. Not that he needed help, but he would make a fuss sometimes, and demand that I went back up to 'help' him. Now he is very indignant if I try to hold his hand. And I'm not allowed to lift him into the bath. He can climb in himself, but didn't refuse help before, now he's cross if I help.
After all those months of being quite happy to have everything done for him - he's becoming independent. sniff!
They're helpful these little boys and girls aren't they. YOu can send them to fetch things and allsorts, tidy up. I'm going to become very lazy. )))))
Oh and the horrible tantrums have finally arrived. Tantrums of great perversity 'I don't like the garden' then 'I want to go into the garden' - but I thought you didn't like the garden?? Puzzled look. Followed by Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaah and lots of other completely contradictory statements for half an hour. What!?!
What's going on?!?!?
I'm leaving home.

Screaminglips Tue 09-Oct-07 17:32:50

well it was Tweenie's first day at preschool. She did really well as her teacher said that "She was a STAR!"....and she never mentioned me once!!......sad im forgotton already!! wink

So she is going back tmrw.....

(i managed to clean my house and put everything away that ive been meaning to do for ages, my house was spotless!!)
