April 2005 - Where has 3 years gone?(290 Posts)
TMM, i'm so sorry to see your sad news. I dont really know what else to say other than i am sending you MASSIVE hugs. I hope you and Lee can be strong for each other. xxxx
TTM, Thank you it was Ella's birthday last Thursday and it is mine today We took J to see Thomas at the end of March and it was really good. He thought it was fantastic! Hope ds2 has a lovely birthday tomorrow and that you have a fab time on Thurs.
WTHN, great just what you need MORE crap to deal with. I hope that it works out ok for you.
Hi from Seth's mummy! I was one of the 2005 posters (then mummydreamer) and thought I'd say a quick hello. I lurk a lot these days but can sometimes be found on the SN boards. As I type, Seth is currently still awake and convinced it's time for nursery soon.....I suspect we are in for a long night!
Hey honeyB, good to see you again. Dh is just reasoning with ds to get him to go to sleep
Sorry just read the last April 2005 thread and realise I cut in on a conversation. TMM sorry to hear your news.
Well if your dh has any success let me know. I made the mistake of changing ds's routine very slightly this evening so now I am paying the price! The joys of Autism eh?
happy birthday am! hope ella loved her first birthday xxx
Thanks TTM & AM - we are doing ok
I posted on Facebook yesterday, but Happy Birthday AM
HB- hello, howz things?
FM-any news from the ex today? Howz Fran?
Thanks for your text but i have no credit at the moment.
he beeing a royal pain in the arse today. we arranged for him to pick up fran at 3, ten past no show so i phoned him. he was still at his dads his pathetic excuse???????
i thought you'd changed your mind
he then didn't turn up til nearly twnty past. then he sent me a text saying that "i own't be ebale to have fran on 29th as i am going out and will rearrange". excuse me? he wouldn't answer phone then gets his dad to answer and when i tell him that if mark can send me snotty messages then he can answer the phone like a man. his dad hung up. then i try him again. the ophone rings and rings. so i phone xp and say that it wasn't the 29th, you are due to see her on the 27th-28th. so the next thing i know he sends me another text saying that i tmust be the 28th. this is becasuse my bro is coming to visit and as fran was at her dads we'd arranged ot go out. now we can't. it isn't very often i see my brother anyway and now xp f'in it up.
i try and phone back and no answer again. so i leave a message on his answer phone saying that he stopping me from speaking to my daughter. i try to phone fran again and guess what? she answers.
the next thing i know he sends another text saying that he glad he going to mediation cos he gets his say and will tell them everything. er no you won't cos that initial appt is them telling you how mediiation works. best laugh i had all day.
he still being pain in the arse.
anyway. can't believe fran 3 on saturday!!!!!!!!! if i'd got my arse in gear ages ago i would have been able to send you invites. you still welcome tho, tmm you have my number if you can make it xxx
Frans becoming a big girl yay!
How is she? i can't make it the weekend hun.
txt me your addy tho please
Sorry to hear that xp is being a KNOB still!
Jack is going to be 3 on Thursday! I am doing a family tea party on the day and then having a party for all his friends on Saturday at an indoor play centre. 25 kids - lovely! Been wrapping his pressies tonight. Not gone too mad but think i have got the things he asked for.
Nothing much else to report here....
Hope you are all well xx
Happy birthday to Jack for tomorrow, hope you have a lovely day. x
Just saw this thread on the active conversations and couldn't ignore it. I was on the orginal thread all those years ago (was leggymamba then).
DS1 is Patrick and is three on Tuesday. He's a bit of an energy bomb and have to take him outside lots or he explodes! He's grown up in lots of ways (although think he'll be in nappies until his 20s!).
Haven't had a chance to catch up - hope everyone else is doing well. Off to do the dreaded bedtime routine~!
hope you had a lovely day yesterday jack xxx
fran ok, it's me tearing my hair out trying to find recipe for apricot bloody glaze to maek her cake as the ones in the shop cost nearly £8 for a size that i have a tin for. she doing really well, she knows her name and 2nd name, how old she will be on sat, and that it's her bday 2moro!
May I please join you!? I have lurked in the past but never have posted before.
Joey was 3 on the 15th April.
Loler, I think he'll be joining Patrick wearing nappies til he's 20. He just won't admit he's done a poo! Or a wee... He has moments of regression to babyhood I think, his little sister is 21 months, and is on the way to being trained. I started training her to see if he would copy her, and she's making some progress at least, but he's still in denial!!
AprilMeadow, I bow down to you having 25 kids over for the party. How did it go? Hope he had a great day!
Fransmom, sorry to hear about your ex-p trouble. Happy birthday to Fran for tomorrow, hope ye have a great party!
Right well I best say no more for a while, I tend to blabber on for hours...
Jack had a lovely birthday thank you. Got some nice bits and am now trying to find places to put everything!
He is looking forward to his party tomorrow and so am i as i can just turn up, play, eat and then walk away leaving someone else to clean up the mess
How was the madness on Saturday!? I'm amazed that Jack has 25 friends already! I think Joey has about 3!!
hi all xxx and annie xxx
am how did it go?
we had a bout four or five friends invited to frnas party and one phoned at twenty to twelve because she was running late, she was the only one that turned up i was gutted for fran but at least she ahd some family there as well - my brother and grandad was there for the weekend and my cousin brought her family down so it wasn't too bad. frna enjoed playing with her two cousins and my friends boy.
would hasve been able to invite more but she was ill on the monday and could n;t attend ballet!
Hi Fransmom! Happy birthday to Fran for Saturday, did you manage to get the apricot glaze?
We just had a bbq for Joey's on the Sunday before. Just a few of our friends, and two other mums with kids. It was nice, Joey was happy just to play with his pressies and get his chocolate cake. He had to blow out the candles about 10 times!
i cheated thought creatively
i went to morrison's the night before and bouthg loads too much food for the people that did turn up and now it is sitting in my fridge nad haven't a clue what to do with it, too much for me and dd to eat on our own (am LP)
i digress.... i saw a cake there with night garden on it but i was only 7" across and £8 plus!!! so i bought the choc one that was huge and only £6.49!!!
Belated Happy Birthday wishes to Fran. The choc cake would have gotten my vote as well!
Jack had a great time thank you. It was so nice to just turn up, let the kids run riot, have food and then leave without having to tidy up. Jack goes to nursery so has made a fair few friends which is nice, i think all bar 4 were from his nursery.
Are your 3 Yr Olds throwing paddys these days? Joey has only recently started (terrible threes instead of terrible twos).
He wants to do EVERYTHING himself, make his juice, butter his toast, cook his pasta... If you put something in front of him that he hasn't helped to prepare, God Help Us All!
Still, DH seems to have turned it around today! (He is SAHD while I MN work) After lunch, he was getting DD to sleep, and Joey wanted to do it! So DH put her in the cot, and off he went, and Joey stayed there telling her stories! I think they're still at it!! Joey keeps coming in to him saying 'She's asleep now Daddy', but goes back in again and again to check...
Long may it last!!
Fransmom, excellent choice, going for the chocolate cake!
AprilMeadow, lucky Jack to have so many friends! And Thank Goodness for Indoor Play Centres.
