Feb 06 - I'll do it then...(1000 Posts)
Indeed - decided it fitted with what I say all day
"Pick up the teddy"
"Can you put on your coat?"
"I'll do it then....."
Itchin all over now, but I think that it is like when someone mentions headlice and you start scratching
I've got a sudden onset cold, if there is any sympathy left....I was fine thismorning, and feel like crap now. Just waiting for the dds o stop bickering and go to sleep so I can go to bed.
Shall I just chuck in a job lot of sympathy to cover anyone who needs it?
<Sigh> Tumbletots yest morn. School yest aft, inc doing PE whilst there. No nap. Slept 7:45 - 6:15. What do I have to do to get her to sleep longer?!
Oh, dear. Is she tired in the day? Maybe she just doesn't need that much sleep. in whih case I'd keep her up later to get a later start.
Or is she over tired?
Not overtired, but needed to go to bed then rather than later (standard bedtime is 8pm or a bit later). If I keep her up later then I get no evening. I'm going up to bed between 10 and 10:30 as it is. I really thought she would do 11-11.5 hrs last night. Well she will have another very busy day today, so let's hope for better tonight.
<sympathy for Jas>
No idea what my spots were, but they have gone down and stopped itching. Random allergic reaction maybe??
Som ekids just don't need much sleep CSWS
DD is here sobbing that she wants to go to school. I have no idea what to do.
Does she still have a high temp or any sign of any spots? If not then I would let her go, otherwise you could spend your whole life keeping her off 'just in case'.
What did you do?
My plan for today is to drink lots of honey and lemon, and sit around.
I've got playdoh in the fridge, so I think I'll get that out for ds in a minute.
Did dd go to school Flame? Glad your spots have gone
Ds doesn't have a nap at all most days so is ready to drop at 7pm and usually sleeps til 7am.
Hope you feel better Jas
We just got a letter from the bank, our mortgage payments have gone down about £10 a month as from May 1st
Took her to doc, she wouldn't open her mouth, but he said to send her to school
Hello. Might ge time on gherelater. bit busy. But feeling gooood as I finally got round to getting my bikini linew done, albeit taking 2 kids with me With ds1 finding uot how to work the camera on the phone whilst sitting at the end of thecouch
lol mrm. That explains the picture message he sent me .
How is dd tonight flame?
And how are you feeling now Jas?
The paddling pool isn't likely to be open at PWP this weekend is it, even though the forecast is really good? Dh is taking dd with the inlaws, as I'm away for the weekend .
ROFL at picture message
CSWS dd2 isn't sleeping during the day here hardly anymore and is going to bed at 7, then rattling around till 8.30ish most nights and she got dh up at 5.30 this morning so I have no answers for you, but can sympathise.
Flame for the training, must get around to it soon..... at ds being down the garden path, scarey....he's a rum un, as my gran used to say
Phoenix at the cot nightmare, but for ds happily sleeping in bed now.
at your new clothes MRM, shame about the swimmo's but they do just 'go' sometimes eh?
Did you have a good day with your playdough then Jas?
Went out for a meal with a friend last night, we've not seen each other properly for half a year or so, as she's had a young one and been bf, so we've done the chat with kids in tow thing, but sporadically, as I've been working mainly when she's popped by the shop, so had a lovely night catching up
other odd things going on here though, my dad originally declared at start of week, he was paying for us all to go on a 3day break with him to Mallorca in June, then he rang me back to say he was paying for everyone but dh so I reminded him we couldn't afford to go, hence why we aren't already having a holiday abroad this year......after him obviously haggling with my mum, he rang to say he coulnd't better the offer???? (he damn well could afford it if he wanted too, what he wants is to take the girls away and not have to look after them, hence he'll pay for me to go ) But by this point, dh had decided that him and ss would stay here (ss will be at his mums during the time we're going anyway, but he was going to be paid for) and declared he doesn't want to leave the shop anyway and that I should go, as we'll never hear the end of it from my dad..... so that's what appears to be happening, although nothings booked yet, so at my dad refusing to pay for dh, when in fact he doens't have to pay for me, if he'd just look after the girls himself....but as I'm getting a free 3 day break in hopefully warm weather.
just popping in to say hi, hope everyone is well.
csws- see Loobyloo's post here!
Hope you're all well!
Hey CS - how are you doing? Are things amicable since the split? How have the boys taken it (it is 2 boys you have isn't it?)?
Thanks EPPM - have responded.
Yay for free break Friz, but for dh being uninvited.
Will try and post more later. DD ok, whingey but fine for school
Frizbe, the rum un getting worse... any advice to stop my boy killing himself???
Meant to say to you phoenix, donr you remnemver that when we tried to turn the cot into a bed, the prevoius owner ha glued a split, so we had to have it just as a cot with no sides , hencewe got a sencond toddler bed off freexycle.Rckon its a scam by all cot and bed makers to force you into buying anthefr thing justwhen you've chucked hterecepit out
Dh's colleague gave me an mp3 player last night; lots of stuff on it I quite like, but donr know who it is, whcih is very irksome. gping ot have to google the titles of the tracks! I must be getting old
Friz, I'd say a hol is a hol, regardless of the principles at stake! Although if I were you, I'd be wanting dh to be with me so that he could share the parenting!!! I was onlt thinking last niofgt actually, that I need to start filling in my spare says for the hols, and work out potty traininig qweek! Have we decided on aweekend for girls piss up? Did I miss the conclusion of that debate?!
I've bumped your thread, Flame. DS gets his arms out of the ar seat occasionally, but the dds an be relied on to tell me, so I can stop and sort him out,plus we don't drive very often so ot a huge issue here.
I hope you find something to sort him out.
mrm - I remember the cotbed saga now
Agree a hooliday is better than no holiday, but I would be at dh being uninvited.
Don't think we got very far with date planning. Also supposed to be planning a dater for Warwick aren't we? Phoenix told us her days off somewhere on the last thread, but I don't think we got any further.
I think I'm busy the first, and def the last week of Aug, but the first week is flexible.
I think the date planning degenerated into you all being my birth partners .
You're already talking about filling in 'spare days' for the hols . My whole holiday is spare!
