    Its been pretty quiet hasn't it Susan..

    I too liked no LOVED the look of my bank balance this morning.. Between Mr Rudds generous pay out and SImons bonus pay it was looking very healthy indeed

    OMG if OLivia screams like that again my ear drums might burst FFFFFFFFFF is what I feel like screaming this morning.. The kids have been absolutle little turds..

    I despise mornings like this and with Olivia screaming and Jacobs hitting it just makes it so much worse.. now I sign off with ringing ears.. as a little princess is crying at my feet AGAIN.. *sigh FF *sigh*

    Well i better get my butt back in here so you girls arent talking to yourselves.. LOL susan!

    Thats great u guys got to enjoy the bonus... went as quick as it came here.. i got ash some new jarmies cos he really needed them, but it all went pretty much straight to debt.. which im very happy to say though i am doing fantastic at getting rid of.. i got 2 debt repayments paid off last week which have been going a couple yrs! thank christ!
    Now to that bloody credit card!!!!!

    Ash has his apt with the GP in an hour... sooo hoping we can start the iron suplements...
    Yesterday i had to pick him up from childcare cos he had terrible runny poos and they said he was covered in it and wiped it all over the floors LOL so she bathed him and i said i would come get him cos i wasnt really needed at work...
    The past 2 nights hes had is really bad. at 3.30am this morning he threw up everywhere.. so im praying its not another tummy bug!!!! its getting rediculous!! i know kids get sick all the time at childcare. but they said hes the only one.. so dont know whos giving it to him!

    Robs coming over for dinner tomorrow night, which im really happy about.. i decided its time for 'that' talk.... i want to know where things are going... i think its reasonable enough as im sick of thinking should i be hugging and kissing him when it could all be nothing..? No pressure for a relationship, but i just need some heads up...

    Well better go eat before i pich ash up.....

    Nic - hope the kids stop being naughty monkies for you... i hate the crying at the feet... ash has starting some MASSIVE trantrums atm and they drive me insane!... wants a cuddle, doesnt want me to touch him, points at something - i give it to him, he screams and throws it away, whats to get down, put him on the floor, screams to be picked up.. GGRRHHhh

    Thats exactly what Olivia does.. Drives me completly bonkers

    Glad you got some incremin for Ash.. to be honest there isn't a lot of iron in it or at least thats what we were told and thats why Isaac went on the Ferro liquid..

    (side note* sick to fricking death of yelling PUT HER DOWN) Grrr Jacob

    anyways.. It will increase his appetite and offer more green leafy veges and red meat.. Spinach in spag bol is always good

    I had the best day in the end.. I left here just after 9 and shopped till nearly 2 lol.. I got some great bargains.. Got Ethan a new pair of school joggers for $10 and him and I a pair of funnky looking thongs for $5 each..

    Livi got a cute new shirt but only cus she filthied up the one she was wearing and the shirt I had in the bag didn't go with the skirt she was wearing and I didn't feel like changing the whole outfit Thats my excuse and im sticking to it

    Got 2 bottles of scotch for $60 I only like to drink Johnny and its normally $40 a bottle so hey may as well grab it while its cheap.. Gawd I sound like a boozer..

    I even found my toothbrush for half price haha.. Thats how good a day I had.. Just one of those bargain days.

    Olivia didn't end up sleeping till we were on the drive home and only slept about 40-50 mins I suppse but she is happy enough.. I wouldn't be surprised if she is in bed by 6:30

    She also has a few new words. she saus Gog for dog and then makes a woofy sound and she can say turkey lol.. We saw scrub/bush turkeys when we were camping.. and she tries to say lizard

    Oh and a weird thing.. She is suddenly terrified of the cats. They are outside cats and one always runs away when the kids are near and the other loves a good belly scratch so is always gentle.. but for some reason when she hears them meow at the front door she starts screaming hysterically and comes running.. The other day she was outside and just started screaming and screaming and the cat was just walking near her.

    Oh and one more thing lol. Happy 16 months Baby girl..

    Hello - I have been lurking but then get too tired to post.

    Nic - I miss being at home and able to get out to the sales before everyone else does on the weekends. I love the excellent bargain days too. Nothing worse when you have your heart set on buying something and you can't find it or not in your size etc.

    Buzzie - Poor little Ash sick again. Good to hear his iron levels are getting sorted out. I hope "the talk" goes well. You are all getting along very well so don't see why it wouldn't.

    MoM - well done on your studies. I honestly don't know how on earth you do it! I am finding it hard to retain stuff at work these days. Good to hear you also had a great shopping adventure. I hear you on the kids shoes. Why are they so expensive when they aren't going to be in them for long. I got Monique some cute little Dymples shoes with side velcro straps for childcare and they were ruined in a couple of weeks.

    We are doing well. Monique was home with me on Wednesday because she was so incredibly hot when we picked her up from cc on Tuesday afternoon and she stayed hot until the next afternoon but the weird thing was that her temp didn't reach 38. Her gums looked so red and sore so we assumed it was teeth giving her grief and the poor little darling was crying in her sleep. She is so cheeky and I can so relate to the tantrums happening

    Hi all,

    Nic- It most certainly has been quiet,lol.

    Sounds like you had lots of fun shopping too. I just need to get some Winter things for DD & our eldest son now.
    Kieren has started screaming,but copies alot from our friends kids.....little ****s!but i dont have him clingging to my legs,I hope he doesn`t go there.
    Your story of Olivia not likeing Cats was so funny,just couldn`t imagine her being scared of a cat,poor bub.
    Well we are having a crapy time with Tiger being Ferral atm,don`t know what gets into him,he pulled Kieren off the lounge yesty head first,he screamed the house down,then today he was hitting him on the back because he wanted the truck he was playing with,I so tired of his behavior.....big deep breaths.....sighing....

    Lauren- I was thinking is there any chance that Ash could be Lactose Intolarent,his symtoms sounds very similar to what Tiger use to be like,does he have alot of Dairy each day/ night.
    I hope things start to get better for him and the vomitting stops,theres nothing worse.
    Good luck with your talk with Rob,hope he can give you & Ash a commitment.Good luck,hun.

    Kellie- Hi, hope Monique is feeling better,there`s so much crap going around atm,lots of kiddies are sick. How are you feeling,getting some rest i hope.
    I agree with the kiddies shoes,DH bought kieren a pair for $20.00,but i could have bought an Adults pair for the same price,not that i mind,really.....but it`s just silly.
    Well,I might be doing some more shopping tomorrow,off to Big-W,DD needs some new things too,& she enjoys it when we go out without the boys,lol. Take care.

    Well my Eldest son is away for the weekend on an Air Force Camp,,,YAY!! Some peace for us.....So we will get the others out for the weekend.

    OK,hi to everyone else,have a lovely weekend,Cheers.

    susan - funny u say that. mum was convienced for a long time that he was... the only thing is, hes has the severe wind pains since he was 2 months old, so well before he started solids. I tried a diary free diet, a caffiene free and i think lactose - but didnt get far with that one.
    But if this iron doesnt help him i will absolutely look into his foods. The GP said we still need to find the cause of why his body made him iron deficient at this age. he said its unusual for a baby to be so young.. normally kids about 4 or 5 when they start gettign very fussy with foods and refusing everything..

    we had ANOTHER massvie tantie last night.. seems to be happening every night this week, except he only stops when mum or her exhubby cuddles him.. last night they were out and he did it for 1/2hour straight... omg i was so upset and angry and just didnt know what to do.. nothing made him stop and everytime i touched him he screamed worse.. yet if i left the room he ran after me... (i think still checking i was listening to him!!) mum finally came home and Peter (exhubby) picked him up and he stopped straight away and was fine, after about 20mins he was ready for mummy cuddles and fell straight to sleep!!! OMG talk about feeling unwanted

    Buzzie - If my girls chuck tanties I just leave the room. If they follow I refuse to talk to them or make eye contact. It sounds tough but they love an audience and this method seems to help them settle down quicker than if I try to stop them.

    Tinsel - i hope Monique gets better soon.

    Hi everyone. I have been lurking but too tired to post some days.

    Hi everyone,

    I am still around too but have been a bit busy and sidetracked lately.

    Lauren - good to hear that you can see a little light at the end of the tunnel for Ash's tummy problems. Nic is right about spinach in spag bol. You can sneak it into lasagne, rissoles and baked ricotta too, Olivia loves all of these things and I make sure I hide lots of veggies in them

    Susan - I'm not sure how you are studying at the moment. I have trouble just remembering what i need at the supermarket most days now

    Nic - I love a good bargain shopping day, it makes you feel like you really 'won' something I just FB'ed you about a good bargain you might like for you trip.

    Tinsel - We have teeth movement here too and it is driving us crazy. I just wish the next couple would pop through and give us a little rest. Yesterday I caught up with a friend of my sisters whose baby is one day older than Olivia and he already has 16 teeth! My little girl still only has 8.

    Not much going one here. I think I forgot to menttion that we have booked flights to Alice Springs for June, so that is pretty exciting. I am actually supposed to be researching accomodation now but am on BB instead

    Have a great day everyone!

    But i have read them all

    My kids have all been put to bed and its just 6:30 Teach them to **** me off.. This is the 3rd time this week they have been put in their beds before 7. Olivia was tired and she was asleep by 6:20 I think.. the boys have just been total ferals this week.. turd heards grrrrr

    Susan: Jacob has been terrible with olivia too.. Pulling her hair, pushing her over.. I wonder if its because she is up and running he thinks she is big and is actually playing but to rough kwim? hestill gets in trouble and reminded she is still tiny and he should keep his hands to himself..

    Well im off to eat M&M's and have a scotch.. I don't normally drink when Simon is at work but sheesh i need one after today

    Evening all,

    Lauren-I?m so sorry your going through those tantrums with Ash,it sometimes happens,
    i find if i just walk away until they calm down,trying so hard to ignore their crap.....they usually stop,because mummy isn`t giving them any attention!
    Hey,I was thinking about what you said about how long has had tummy problems & bad gas....If it wasn`t Colic,just my theory here.....if your breast feeding and you yourself are consuming dairy products,it come across in your breast milk,so therefore,could have been upsetting Ash`s tummy,did you mention this to the Doctors. I still think it`s either a Lactose problem or it could also be a Allergy to the protien in cows milk and milk products.
    So how was your dinner,did you have a good time,did Ash behave himself....LOL!

    Bek- Hi,your foregiven for not doing personals,hun....lol.Hope your pg is going well,& your not working too hard,hows the family going? Take care.

    Alicia- Hi,all is well with us,been shopping for the kids,they got spoilt this weekend.I did do some studies today,as Dh took the kids out to see their Nanna.My studies are going really good thankyou. Hows your little girl,Olivia going? Your holiday plans sounds fabulous.....little jealous here would love to travel around Australia,one day..... Hows the new car,going hun? Do you like it.....

    Nic- Hi,sorry your kiddies are pi--ing you off hun,Tiger is the one who makes me mad....god only knows how many times he has time out for mucking up,& he`s been pushing and hitting Kieren,last week pulled him off the lounge onto his head,then Friday night hit him on the side of the head with a book,I?m worried when they scream,the whole bloody neighbour hood can hear them.....sigh.....pre-school has made him worse. Anyway Nic,no wonder you needed a scotch,hun,would have joined you,but your too far away,and i hardly ever touch Alcohol,lol. I hope next week is a little better for you. Olivia is like Kieren their little,so the others seem to pick on them,but i just want put up with it.

    Well,I hit my head on the car roof today,god i have a bloody good headache,so I?m off to make a cuppa,then early to bed i think.....

    Ok,everyone good night,hope you are all well.

    Buzzie you have also had lots of changes, you have gone back to fulltime work, there's the stuff with Robs family... babies react to change at all ages. It could also very well be a normal developmental stage - check out the book The Wonder Weeks, its brilliant and goes through the ages and stages and what you can do to help fly through them.

    Susan - yeh when Ash was a very little i tried to change my diet too, i cut out dairy but really struggled with it, i would sneek a piece of cheese here or there but cut out anything creamy or milky etc.. His apt with the specialist is next friday so i will definatly talk about diet things with her.

    Kell, yeh Robs SIL who used to work in childcare said they also change when they start going because they have to start learning to fight for what they want eg,toys.. etc... (im sure thats just one of the reasons maybe)

    But its just so hard when he wont settle for me, but as soon as mum or peter cuddle him hes fine.. worries me about moving out... the neighbours are gonna hate me!! LOL

    My night was very very nice.. but a little confusing... Cos the conversation steered into marraige and that wasnt really what i wasnt to talk about.. so i never really got to clarrify if we are 'together'. We act like we are so maybe hes just asuming we are..... i dunno.. i couldnt push the conversation anymore as it was deep and meaningful enough for a male for one night. But he said as we were talking about kids, 'i dont want to have one right now but the next one i want to do right and be married first' so i (asuming he meant with me?? said so you gonna proposed to me are you - trying to lighten the conversation, LOL and he said i want to make sure things are right between us.. im like WFT! - anyways at that point ash needed to be fed and then i heard mum coming home so i said to him, u got out of that conversation easy! But he was very cuddly after and said he really wants to see us again before the weekend.. so it great hes spending so much time with us now... im just little confussed... i think he prob is too...

    Had an awesome time at his brothers tho.... got to cuddle there tiny bubs.. god it felt like years ago ash was the small! and the sil was just brilliant with ash.. he loves her so much, its funny as watching him with her!

    Better get back to work..ehehe .... have a good day all..

    Nic - I hope today is better for you.

    MOM - OUUCh, I hate when I hit my head. My pregancy is going well, although I don't feel this one moving as much as I would like, although my placenta is anterior so that could be why.

    Buzzie- I agree with Kelly regarding all the change that Ash has had lately. IMO you'll be fine if you move away from your Mum. In one way you'll gain back your authority with Ash (that sounds harsh using the work aurthority but you know what I mean).
