katymac, nurserys always stick their nose up at that because it maens they have to do a little extra work!

I was a nursery supervisor, and i always said to parents that toilet training was up to them and their child. A parent knows their own child.

B1 and B" were trained fully at 2.5, but they were really ready and kept yanking their nappies off! I would never force! It can do more harm than good.

grade 4!!!!! OMG!!!

I sometimes wish I had shorter hair but my head would look like a ball of fluff in the morning (naturally curly)

About to do school run and I just know the skies will open. Mindee hates the rain cover too. Oh well - off to wake the kiddies and run to school!

Shame on nursery really - it will just blow their self esteem! They will do it when they are ready, and not a second before. How unhelpful!

Well, its kind of a grown out grade 4.

I ran the marathon in April and dyed it pink, then tried to re-dye it blonde, but it went awful, so i had it chopped off (it was short anyway) Dh likes it short, me too, its great! so easy in the morning!

I wear it short and spikey.

katymac- I think that twins talk later, im sure ive heard this as they communicate with eachother in their own way so dont feel the need to with others til later on.... and hell...why not!?!

Bless them, im sure they will kwin the staff over and will become firm faves. We used to love twins at the nursery!

They did have thier own language and spoke to each other in "twin-speak"

I wonder if my sis and I ever did this - will have to ask my mom, but if we are together now we will inevitably finish each others sentances or say the same thing at the same time - of course which makes people laugh blech Good party trick though! And our laugh is exactly the same - it's ridiculous
