Er Hello everyone I am not new to mumsnet but just found this board.

ScoutFinch · 03/06/2008 21:33

Do I count? I have 3 boys, 3 yrs, 2 yrs and 1 yr and our next boy is due on 4th July.

Someone told me there are families with 7-9 dc on here I am in total awe!

They suggested you all for advice on my newly punchy 3 yr old, who favours trying to hit me in the belly!

Could do with some help from Calpurnia, eh Scout?

I have come to the conclusion that I just have to accept that the toilet seat will never be left down for me in my house.

"retiredgoth", sounds like me in my former life before kids!

People I know see photos of me in full goth mode back in the day and they don't recognise me....now I sound like an old fart!

Ooo, hi ScoutFinch - I have four boys too. Mine are six, four (x2) and seven months, and I said to DH the other day I couldn't think of anyone I knew who had four kids so close together - but you definately win hands down - blimey!

Sometimes I feel suffocated by the amount of testosterone in the house too, but I'm not a girly girl and like to wrestle on the couch along with them, so I'm okay with that.

Ah boys are the best I have 5 plus a girl, bless her. She is super girly and the boys torment her at every opportunity. I am pregnant again and am not allowed to say i want a boy in RL as they all want another girl.

The toilet seat is a perpetual hate in my house, mind you the 3 year old has stopped lifting it and now pees over the seat, nice when us girls sit down...

Erm dunno, am phoning mdwife as we chat. I had a colposcopy back in April and bled quite heavily afterwards so assumed it was a period.

Felt very sick about 3 weeks ago and dh made me test +ve at lunchtime straight away! So maybe the bleeding was not a period? I dont know. I get sick about 6 weeks in to it so that would make sense. I just have a nagging feeling that the sex we had just after the bleed may have done it too

Of course that would mean i had a +ve test about 13 days post conception, with a very strong line and symptoms hence the multiple panic

Aplogies for hijack, please come back and talk boys

mastering the quick turn and deflection is the only remedy for punchy 3yos in my experience

He'll soon get bored and just start whining instead

ScoutFinch · 05/06/2008 11:20

Oh Tickle he's good at that too! Occasionally the whining actually enters that pitch where the human ear can no longer detect it but all the dogs in our road start howling....
