    happy mothers day to you kymmmmmy good monkey sleeping all night for you!! do you think she will keep doing it??

    jemima had a huge day with baby competition but still managed to impress me with growing up.... she learnt how to climb onto the couch - now to convince her it is not like swimming and diving/jumping off it not cool and she named carebear.... we have never named him and always called him teddy or carebear but she calls him "bub ba" so now we have realised he is not just her best friend he is also her baby, she keeps cuddling him/patting him to sleep and he always needs a drink of water when she does except he makes a "cluchk cluchk" noise when she is feeding him, and she puts him in her stroller and insists on pushing the stoller around and if i leave him in the car she goes back for him reaches in and grabs him - i was not expecting that kind of thing until she was 2 or 3 - my little girl is a mummy hehehehehehe
    she has also got a new thing when she wants to go.... she waves.... not 'on que' or anything like that she has had enough of me chatting so she starts waving tothe person i am talking to which is MY cue to say bye bye and leave!! cheeky thing.... i am in trouble when she can talk and tellme she is bored and wants to go home.... hmmmm

    Hello!

    KEL _ I am loving that Jem is a Miss Mummy already. She sounds like she is into her carebear like Claudia with her pooh bear. He comes everywhere, she wants him when she's upset, tired or hurt herself, she has to give him a drink & pat him & snuggle him & take him for walks in the dolls pram. It's so adorable to watch! Have you perfected the fountain pony tail yet? LOL, I was thinking of you this morning when I was doing my girls hair.

    KYM _ Woweeee, that is the best present of all! A full night's sleep! I bet you felt absolutely radiant after that! Good on you Monkey! Yes, I can sit down with Jessica & have a conversation, she is a very bright little girl. SHe never baby babbled, always spoke properly but Claudia is a big baby babbler so it's very hard to hear. I told Jessica that I will stop sending her to her bedroom if she will start doing the things I ask her to do & that I will stop growling at her. I said it makes me sad to have to growl at her all the time, so if she could be a big 3yo girl & do what Mummy says then we will all be happy. I also mentioned something to her once before that Mummy, Jess & Claudia have to stick together because Daddy is away so it's just us 3 girls. We are going to my parents for the night on Saturday night & Jess told my parents that Mummy & Claudy are coming because we have to stick together. Funny the things that stick in their minds.

    ME _ Had a wonderful morning at the settling in for Jessica for her daycare. Claudia thought it was just fantastic & threw a massive tanty on the floor when we were leaving! She loved it! Jessica also loved it there & they have a piaza where all their meals are served & she got to paint her own placement so she thought she was really spesh. She made a beautiful little friend called Yelena, who is just gorgeous. I think the thing I like the most is the way the teacher addresses the children. It's really lovely & the kids have to address the teachers as Miss or Mrs & their surname, which I like as well. I'm thinking of putting Claudia in there next year when Jessica is off at Kindy because she had such a great time.

    Well I must be off & I will catch you all later!

    Love Jayne

    Jayne - I am sorry to hear that you are finding it tough with Alan away and the girls on your own. I hope that Jess settles down a bit and listens to her Mummy more after your talk. You sound like a brilliant Mum and even more spectacular as you are a single mum most of the time. I take my hat off to you (well I would if I was wearing one). That's fantastic that Jess loves childcare. How many days is she going? I hope that takes some weight off your shoulders.

    Kel - I hope that Jem's mouth heals up quickly and you wont have any more dramas with childcare. Unfortunately it is one of those things when your kids are playing with others. When we were out with Kym today, Monkey got pushed over at the playground today as a bigger kid wanted to play on what she was on.

    Kym - Haven't heard of Kindred mag, but will be interested in borrowing it sometime. I get parenting mag, so we could do a swap.

    Ryn - Hope you and Liebs are ok. Glad he likes childcare.

    Lisa - How is James after his teacher dying?

    Sally - How did it go at the specialist?

    Us - Tobi fell down the stairs yesterday, about ten in total, and even curved around with the stairs at the bottom instead of going splat into the wall. I caught him at the bottom but just wasn't quick enough to stop him, either that or by me approaching it caused him to fall as he turned to look at me. He had two bumps on his head, but nothing serious and is back to his normal self today.
    I have enrolled in a diploma of financial planning, all this talk of studying made me stop talking about it and actually get my butt into gear. I don't know whether I will go into it as a profession, but I wanted to do something and that was the best I could come up with.

    wow a diploma of finance planning, that will get you places you wont be able to stop once you start - you go girl!!
    so so so many jobs out there and they all want accountancy and bookkeeping and stuff like that what is with the world loving numbers.... i hate them!!!
    wish i hadnt told my friend i'd do that week of work for her - it is in 2 weeks time and it is making it heaps difficult to get a job either until then or on either side of it so i think the next two weeks will be just settling jem into daycare more (getting there later and later to pick her up - today was 4.45) and registering at other agencies and having a GOOD break
    today i got a manicure/pedicure at one of those asian nail places, i'd usually pay $10 and get my neighbour to do my nails but couldnt be bothered watching her kids who she sometimes brings over and she speaks terrible english which has somehow gotten WORSE in the 3 years i've known her.... so i went to one of those asian places where they dont want you to talk to them and they prefer to talk to eachother and laugh rudely that was a nice break
    i can feel the flu coming on - not really pleased about that but if it does happen at least jemima is at daycare and doesnt get a mummy feeling sorry for herself all day!
    tomorrow my turn to volunteer at the opshop i havent been there for a while coz of holidays so i am sure there is HEAPS of good stuff come in - yippeee
    false alarm on jemima naming carebear seems everything is bub ba kinda - so i am not sure i think she is just going on about herself bub ba and then her bub ba but i think he has a name as well but i cant understand it

    saw an awful facebook/youtube video today that told a story about a little girl that was dead by the time she was 5 because of the abuse she was dealt by her mother, grandmother and step father i cried like a baby and then felt awful for putting MY baby in someone else's care.

    Oh god Kel... I have seen that video too... it doesn't make it any easier with the "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" song playing all through it too huh?
    It is just so terrible that these little angels have endured so much and then teach us a very sad lesson... bless their little souls
    I try to not let those things get to me... I am a way OTT paranoid and protective parent to Harrison, moreso than I was with James and Madeleine... so watching those videos can set me off on a wrap-him-in-cottonwool state of mind... I think awareness is the key thing with those, just be aware of what is going on in your child's life. You ARE a bl00dy fantastic Mummy to Jemima and I am sure you would never ever see her put into a difficult or dangerous situation, and as you said you get a "feel" for these things too.
    Huge hugs I hope you're feeling better after your cry.

    Hi Girls,

    Just a quick one from me as we had a get together at a friends house last night and got home at 2.30am very tired today. Even though I didn;t drink at all being pregnant I still felt hung over !!!!

    Had some very sad news, My girlfriend who was due 2 days after me had her 19 week scan on tuesday and her husband rang me later on that day and told me the baby had died. I just felt devestated for her. She has to be induced and give birth tomorrow. I think I will buy a card and maybe a guardian angel or something like that and just drop it in to her letter box as she isn't up to seeing anyone, and not sure how me being pregnant will affect her. Haven't been able to get it off my mind.

    I have my Ob appt Tuesday to get the results back from my scan, so looking forward finding out that hopefully everything is as it should be.

    Well my loves, night nighty for me xx

    Oh Kristy, I am so sorry to hear about your poor friend and her angel baby

    When we lost Noah, my sister was about 16 weeks pregnant... I have to admit that it was really hard at first being happy about her pregnancy... it was nothing to do with my sister, I was just hurt and bitter... as much as I never wished anything bad for my sister, I was wondering why it was me that it happened to, and not the people who smoked, drank, did drugs etc... After I gave birth to Noah, it became a different grief for me... I was missing my son... not just my pregnancy.... so I came to enjoy my sister's pregnancy in a way, and became very protective of her and her baby... and when Taj was born, it took me a few days to be okay with seeing him.
    It still can get to me at times when I see Taj or hear about the things he is doing, knowing that I should have a son 6 weeks older than him (Taj was overdue by 2 weeks)

    I think that your friend will most likely be okay with your pregnancy in time, but if she isn't I am sure you will understand... she could be having a few thoughts of "why me?" which can make it difficult to be around pregnant women. Blahhhhhh!!! Sorry if this is a bit of a ramble.
    I just really really feel for your friend right now. I hope she gets all the love and support she needs.
    Perhaps you could find out which hospital she is going to and see if they have Teddy Love Club there... if they don't, maybe contact them and see if they can send a teddy for your friend before she goes in? Just a thought... leaving the hospital with empty arms is the most horrible feeling

    a teddy club is the most wonderful idea, i have never thought what it would be like to come home with nothing....
    kristy your friend will have trouble accepting fate but in time she will be happy for you. you are already an awesome friend to her for being there and understanding that she is most likely not ready to talk to you
    i am going to feel the same way (but no where near exactly the same way) IF i get pregnant before a couple of my very very good friends that are trying very very hard (one lost a baby 2 weeks ago) i will know that they will resent me for it (like we are ALL resenting my SIL) but i know in time they will be happy for me.... i am a little the opposite i want a couple of these good friends to get pregnant before me because they want it so so so so badly

    a baby is a gift you can not give but love and support you can give

    My Little Moo has the pox, the chicken variety. I hope Monkey doesn't have them too Kym. We were up all night changing pjs and sheets as Tobi was throwing up most of the night. Poor little guy. Seems a bit better today, well at least no spew.
    It is really hard being pregnant when you know other people are trying or not getting pregnant when everyone around you is. Unfortunately it is something that we can't control too much, even with IVF, so don't feel guilty Kirsty, give your friend some space and be there for her if you can. I too like the idea of a teddy. That was a great suggestion Lisa.
    I hope you find the right job soon Kel, in the mean time enjoy your break. Go to the movies and out to lunch and do all the things you can't do or can't enjoy as much with a kid in tow.
    Hope you are all well and happy. Think of me locked inside my house for the next week till Tobi isn't contagious. Just the thought of it sucks.

    oh no chicken pox!!! at least he is getting them out the way nice and early.... quinn had them i think?? kirsten?? i didnt have them til i was 7 years old

    okey pokey - supermums i need some ideas............. last night 3am jemima woke up, the night before it was 11pm just before we were about to go to bed............ no idea why the only difference in her day is no daycare - daycare i thought would be the nights with unusual sleep due to excitment etc - we didnt give her an afternoon nap on the weekend but they are not at daycare either......
    could she be cold????? could it be that easy???

    You might be right Kel, it could be that easy. I am pretty sure the reason why Tobi was waking up recently was because he was cold. I have been putting on an extra blanket on him just before I go to bed as it gets a lot cooler during the night than what it is when I put him to bed.
    Otherwise they say that bubs that don't get enough sleep during the day can often be harder to settle at night. So she might not be ready to drop a sleep yet.
    And maybe it could be just cause she wants some extra attention from you guys now that she is away from you during the day. She's waking up to make sure that you are still there and are still there for her when she needs you.
    Thats all I have got!!

    thats what i thought but why doesnt she wake up during the week? she gets less sleep at daycare than she does at home?? she sleeps in every saturday morning (we have to wake her for swimming lessons)
    i have just remade her bed with different blankets and a soft under sheet mattress protector thingy so she is going to have a nice warm soft bed tonight, i will fill her with food so she cant be hungry and see what happens - of course she does have two teeth cutting through right now so i guess that could be bothering her

    she wouldnt settle for benji lastnight so she was in our bed - i didnt even wake when she was crying! and after heaps of cuddles from me and after she pulled my hair lots and stuffed about i just went and dumped her back in her cot and she went to sleep but then i coulldnt get back to sleep! it is insane and so random

    thanks for ur help tashie - i was so thinking the extra attention thing but expected that last week not on the weekend.... so confusing

    Kel - You know, it probably could be something as simple as her being cold. When we know the nights are going to be cold, we make sure we fill Harrison up with as much warming foods as possible, and he usually has a glass of warm milk before bed... and we either dress him in his little sleeping bag (which he hates because he can't escape it) or we put an extra blankie on him... usually he sleeps right through.

    Tashie - Poor little Tobi having chicken pox. Jamie had them just before he turned 1 and they were sooooooo terrible. Neither Harrison or Madeleine have had them (yet) and are both getting their immunisations for it... hopefully neither of them get it before then.
    I hope he comes through it fine and without scars (Jamie has loads of scars from him itching in his sleep... even with mittens on) Thanks for asking after Jamie too... he is doing better now thanks... he is still getting used to his new teacher and missing his old one.

    target sells sleeping bags with legs.... i have not tried jemima in her sleeping bag without legs since last winter - thought she would hate it too much to be bothered.... but is the reaction not THAT bad?

    didnt think of scaring with regards to early chickenpox..... it is a diesese i want to get out of the way before highschool but now not too soon..... benji had his grade seven graduation so he had to stand at the back of the class coz his surname started with W and he thinks also coz he had had chickenpox...

    I bought Harrison's sleeping bags from Best and Less... they have holes in them so you can slip the seatbelt clip through... it comes in handy for mornings where I need to put Harrison in the car and it is still too cold.

    i always wanted one of those too but my evil SIL had two and sold one on ebay for $1 rather than offering it to jemima so i never bothered to get one - but then when i saw the sleeping bags that have no slip feet and everything a zipper up the middle and a little button under the chin i had to get it - jem's is purple with a pink deer on it

    i so hope she was just cold and then couldnt settle coz she was not in her own bed, i will mention to benji temperature so that if he wakes again and i dont (i feel like such a bad mum that i dont hear her cry in the night) he can try more blankets.

    Grrr at your sister in law. How petty.
    I have given my sister loads of my things... and would have gladly given them to my SIL if she was having a baby.
    I have heard that cold weather can make their gums hurt more too... not sure if it is an old wives tale or not... but when it is really cold, we have found that putting some bonjela on Harry's gums has helped settle him down.
    With all the SIDS stuff, I am always too cautious about over heating Harrison... but now he know's how to get out from under his bedclothes if he is too warm... he has a doona on his bed (a Cars one)that we usually take off and he has a cot blanket that we put over him... when it gets too cold, we trade the blanket for the doona.
    I hope Jem has a better sleep tonight

    Hey Sweethearts,

    KRISTY _ I was pg & due at the same time as one of my close gf's & my pregnancy ended up miscarrying & I found it very hard. NOt in the fact that she was pregnant & I wasn't, but because I felt like I was on the outer all the time & I felt she didn't tell me things about her pregnancy progressing because she felt she'd offend me. I think the thing to remember is for you to still be around & offer her the support & try not to tip toe around her. I hope that makes sense? I feel for her, I really do, she must be going through hell right now. Also, honour the babies memory, rather than just as a loss. I hoep that she is going ok. Have you heard from her? What hospy was she going to? The TLC is a great idea. My gf sent me a teddy through them when I lost my baby & it was very touching. I still have it now & stare at it & wonder. Anyway, on a brighter note, I'm glad your scan went great guns. Not long now & you'll be making your birth announcement! WOO HOO! Oh & BTW we have to meet up before you pop!

    I'll BBL for personals. I have hungry monsters to get dinner ready for. I made stroganoff in the slow cooker tonight! YUMMY! Claudia has a splitting headache, almost literally. The kids were playing outside with my sister & her 2 kids & Claudia walked right into the path of the swing. Apparently knocked her flat like a tin soldier & she has a big welt across her forehead & the bruise is almost appearing before my eyes. She is bright, alert & mobile so I will just give her some Nurofen before bed to hopefully stop the headache.
