    I was doing a bit of posting on The Age website a few weeks ago in relation to boob jobs. I decided that thoughts about boobs and boob jobs are driven by appealing to male values, no matter how much women say 'it's for me'. I don't buy the 'it's for me' thing. If it weren't for appealing to men, boobs wouldn't appear in advertising NEARLY as much as they do, and consequently making 'small' women feel self-conscious about their figures. I reckon that if you pare back the argument you would find that without the factor of appealing to men somewhere along the line, women wouldn't care what their own boobs looked like! Put it this way, back in the 20's, small boobs were IN - there was merchandise to flatten bigger boobs! If only more men were like DP, who actually prizes a slim waist, the pig!

    Hi girls - bit late posting today! Had swimming this morning then off to a friends for lunch and got home at about 3.30pm. Chelsea had fun playing in the spa, she is now laying on her couch watching Curious George! Got a nice surprise when I got home, my beautiful DH had hung out 2 loads of washing and done the vacuming (what does he want LOL!!!). He has been at working so much lately, that me and the girls have hardly seem him and he is at work tonight again!!! Makes life difficult when he is not around - I sympathise with you Simone doing much more on your own

    Bath - I am getting close to your age (nearly 34) and my DH has lots of grey hair. He has black hair so you can easily notice them (he hates them). You look fabulous for your age and it looks effortless for you. You are not caked in makeup, you look very natural which I think makes you look much younger.

    IK - Oscar looks so cute in his green outfit - like a mini Robin Hood! Bet you can't wait to reveal your new nose - hope its feeling better now. Are you ever going to get to finish the wraps LOL!!!! You will be so glad when they are finished.

    Simone - you have such a beautiful figure after 3 kids!!!! Mine has never quite gone back to its original shape but hey, you've gotta love what you've got! I don't want silicone boobs, just a quick lift up would do nicely! Hope you feel better soon.

    Kel - enjoy your cheap holiday, the house you are staying at sounds beautiful!

    Sorry if I have missed anyone, there was so much to catch up on after being out today. Us Junies can chat! BBQ sounds great, wherever is decided.

    Well at boobs mine are a huge 16E and when I'm finished having kids and save up the money I will be getting a reduction as well, because right now my back kills me every day, I have to wear a bra to bed cause of them sagging, I'm only 27 and have a really issue with my breasts. I love that they have fed/are feeding my children, but I shouldn't have to put up with the pain. Each to their own, I think, but it is nice that we can talk about these things with each other. Well boy is screaming for his boobie juice so will be back.

    hugs xoxo

    Absolutely, Amanda! Mine got up to a 16E when pregnant and I couldn't see them shrinking any time soon, but they did. Now that size isn't as much of an issue (DD, still big!), I am left with my shape issues...but even that has diminished cos I realise I have this idea of ideal shape from the media. Oscar likes the shape and DP says he likes them, too. My mum had a reduction a while ago - she needed it like you, Amanda - had back probs for years.
    back to entertaining Oscar...

    "it is nice that we can talk about these things with each other" (Amanda)

    I agree! Well said... i think if people are tactful even the most sensitive subjects can be safely discussed. The world would be a much better place if people made the effort.

    Simone: mmmm bangers and mash... might send verity off to the butchers for some chicken snags before he closes....

    yeah, what a wonderful surprise to see Kel here, I was just thinking of you the other day when I saw my cousin (my cousin also had a boy and a girl) - it is SO good to see you here.

    IK - so gald the nose op was well, sorry about the feeding debarcle though... some people just dont' understand how important BF is to us (and to the baby)...

    Baths - I'm so into Fly lady its not funny.. that is where I've been - cleaning and decluttering my house! I also decided to buy some new clothes that fit my new figure and lifestyle... now I just don't know what to do with the old ones?????

    boob reduction: my aunty had one and her's are now a DD, they look fantastic - my beautican in the US also had one and was REALLY happy with the results, you apparently get a GREAT set after a reduction, so much better than an enlargment.. sadly my AA (currently a B) will not need reduction I'm sure! He hee...

    Well, for the last 2.5 weeks Ally has been waking every 2 hours for a feed at night (with DH away Ive been a tad tired), but last night she sleep through! I woke in a puddle of milk at 2am, so I put her on to help my aching boobs, but she did not wake so I'm calling it a sleep through.. can you belive it.. from 4 feeds a night to 1! OMG! Also, she is now sleeping in a cot, not a hammock. AND.. she puts herself to sleep... No more rocking and crying and rocking and crying and rocking and (me) crying every time... I put her down and either stroke her hair or leave and she falls alseep.. YEAH... oh darn.. she is awake... chat soon..
    luv you gals!
    Hi Mel and Amanda.. sorry did not get to your posts!
    Simone - glad Dec is a bit better.. I was reading about his hospital visit...

    LOL CC! My mum's boobs are a great shape now and that's what I would like to happen to mine should I require the chop! I reckon I might still get it done, but way down the track, just to make sure BFing isn't compromised. I"m sure that if I have the number of kids I want that I will need some kind of reconstructive work just so that I can get around without having to wear 3 bras LOL!
    Yeah, this has been a civilised discussion - no-one calling others 'surfboards' or 'pornstars', hee hee! Although, right now, I'm sure there are people who think I am the latter when I'm not with Oscar...
    Anyway, CC, that's great that Ally has come out of her 'needy' period - as you may have noticed, Oscar has entered his. I keep thinking of you and reminding myself to just ride this one out, so it's good to read your post about things settling down again
    Oh, Amanda, you shouldn't need to have to save too much - it's covered by Medicare for back pain That's how my mum got it done without having to fork out heaps - a lot of it was paid for by Medicare. Also, like I said, some report successful BFing when the surgeon can do the job without removing and repositioning nipples. Geez, that sounds ouchy...the things we women have to do!
    Mel - I got ONE wrap done, the other will have to wait till I've threaded the overlocker. I might do the second one on that and finish it off with the plain machine. I have many visions, I just need to make them materialise!
    DP will be impressed, I managed to remember to take out some porterhouse steak (organic, from Aldi - first time, I might still prefer to use the local butcher for meat to satisfy my ethical shopping bent...which kicks in right after I've done the main shop at Aldi each fortnight!)...

    Yeah, Amanda, that's what I'd rather do, too I mean, if the anaesthetist could miss the whole point of me wanting to BF after my surgery last week, I don't have the greatest faith that I'd be able to feed, despite assurances!
    Time has flown way too quickly - doesn't seem like long ago that our babies were rather inert little critters and now they are rolling and crawling...ahhhhh, I feel so old!
    got the overlocker threaded, but now DP has gone to training and Oscar is getting upset on the floor again...

    Amanda, I'm glad you have decided to wait, I would too as BF is important to me. But I can totally understand those who are in so much pain they can't wait. I'm surprised (but happy) that it is covered by Medicare - that is great! It should be too! So exciting starting solids... I read in my handout from the Hospital that you don't need to buy Farax you can just overcook rice? May taste better?????

    IK - you will be happy to know that I did not start solids early, despite it all the Nurse recommend I wait till six months and ride through the 2 hourly night feeds. So as I said it lasted 2 and a half weeks, and hopefully tonight will be another good night? (Fingers crossed)... So maybe Oscar will be the same.. Just a little bit more cuddly for a few weeks? Hopefully there will be end sooner even? Hugs to you darl, I so know what it is like..

    Mel - we had swimming lessons today too. So much fun and Ally loves it, well she likes it anyway, I love it as their is also a great cafe there and we all meet for coffee afterwards. OK, not coffee, but a HUGE iced chocholate and a muffin.. me bad?

    Simone - awwww.. you have been having a hard time with three sick and you with a sore throat as well... I saw this program on the TV where they said that bacteria can not survive in really high temps.. so for a sore throat they recommended drinking really hot (eg: not boiling but really hot) water as it killed the bateria there.... my cure for everything is to also stick some fresh ginger and some honey in there as well... Well, it always makes me feel better anyway..

    Going to put some more photos of Ally on her website if anyone is interested....
    take care ladies...ohhh.. baby yoga and then mothers group tomorrow so may not check in, but hope you all have a nice day.

    CC: That video entitled "Rollen" is fantastic! I actually LOL... Ally's face after she completes the roll is so funny! You've inspired me to do one of Niall... he has a slightly different technique. Alos, speaking of inspiration: you'll be pleased to know that for a few weeks now i have been using a plastic tub in my kitchen sink and a bucket in my laundry trough to catch grey water. The one in the kitchen has proved to be amazing in how much water can be collected from simply turning on the tap to wash your hands, fruit throughout the day, rinsing bench cloths etc. When it's full I tip it on the lawns. Now even DH is getting on the act Hardly a drip goes down the drain anymore!
    It's good how we are positively influencing each other hey?

    Hey Jess, but just a suggestion: don't burn any bridges with the kinder group... I'm sure there is a high turnover of people within the organisation given that people probably only hang around until their child goes to school... so why not go along and maintain your dignity... soon the bad eggs will be gone and you'll probably be left with the nicer ones anyhow

    Couldn't make it there tonight Bath, but i will chat to some of them in the next couple of days and let them know why I couldn't make it.
    On another point, all of my kids are going to be in their schools calendar for next year. So proud of my angels.

    Wow, Jess, that's a bit of an achievement! Go Jess's kids
    I agree with Bath, too - let their pettiness go and get them back by being a productive member of the committee. You don't want to go and give them reason to exclude you legitimately, that's just what I think, anyway.
