    Arte Logan has been doing the same thing for a while now. I figure a few minutes here and there shouldnt matter. He gets frustrated if we try to stop him.

    Art- Oh what a crack up with trying to get all 3 kids to sit on santas lap. The boys really wanted to do it when we were lining up but when it was our turn that was another story so in the end we only have a photo with Olivia. The boys just stood back and waved to him oh and took the pressie he was handing out. lol.... May be next year oh but by then Olivia wont want to sit on his lap knowing my kids. hehehehehe or should that be hohohohohoho.

    Lol leanne, I guess a photo of O by herself is better than one of them all screaming. I don't envy you getting twin toddlers and a bub through the mall christmas crowds.

    I thought the standing thing was o.k, teach me to listen to nosey old ladies at the bus stop.

    Art/Noni: I not been game to go shopping by myself with all 3 yet. Usually I take DH on weekends and either have both boys standing in a trolley and O in a single pram or take double pram and have X and O in pram and Jordy is on Daddy shoulders. We dont really let them walk as they will want to do it all the time and have the temptation of running a muck. This would stress me way too much running around after both of them going in different directions and have O in toe too. May be when they are older. lol.

    Arte the nosy old ladies probably remember kids with bendy legs from a nutrient deficiency disease called ricketts. Back in the bad old days when lots of ppl didn't have enough food. E loves standing up too but can only hold herself for a few seconds before getting a death wobble LOL!

    Leanne, cracked right up reading about your boys only wanting the present but not to sit on that scary old man's knee! Can't blame them really...It'd be nice if they all get it together at least one year, if not you could always photoshop them in LOL we did that with the calendar we're making for the Grandparents LOL.

    Dietician's was good, 2 whole kgs down woohoo! Now if I can only maintain that over Christmas...haha what are the chances of that?

    Cally your poor DH, I recovered a lot quicker than that, I bet he had food poisoning, did you find out what the pathogen was?

    Heho ho ho Sherie, MIA, busy with your Christmas preps!

    Ooops better go get the daughter from school...

    MD, congrats on your weight loss.

    I haven't got a santa photo yet. There is one at the local shopping centre that has three pics for $10 but every time I go there the santa is tiny. He is like an out of work jockey or something. I want a decent chubby santa.

    Hey Everyone

    Our first night with the girls went pretty well, Scarlet so did not want to go to sleep last night - She was loving all the attention.

    I spent yesterday afternoon playing "hairdressers" with them because they had really bad headlice...i know kids get headlice but not like this, they had what i'd describe as 'nests' of lice.. Poor kids it must have been driving them nuts being so itchy!

    We have just come back from the GP & have appointments with hearing & behavioural specialists... I wasn't going to take them to anyone about behaviour but i need help as it become evident last night the eldest needs to talk to someone, she keeps saying things like 'I don't deal with men' & when my brother called to speak to her last night she told me 'I'm not talking to him, i hate men'- I didn't know where it was coming from until she started talking about her mother's girlfriend 'kitty cat', I had no idea - She's in a lesbian relationship now - which is fine, but not when you teach your daughter to say things like that. We were pretty shocked at first but we're trying not to let her see that it phases us, that's probably not the best thing to do but i really don't know how to approach this one.

    Cally ~ Yay! Glad you got to have an unbroken sleep I hope your DH is feeling better soon

    Congratz on the weight loss MD!***Back away from the christmas ham*** hehe - I PM'd you back, just incase you didn't see the flashing thinger up the top - I always miss it lol.

    I have no resolutions, never keep them anyway, usually by new years morning my resolution is 'I will NEVER drink again'... we don't have any plans, i will probably still be cleaning the house after our massive xmas.

    leemar ~ I think it's a legendary effort that you even leave the house! lol Those boy's must keep you on your toes!

    LMAO @ Your tiny Santas Art! - I still haven't had Scarlet's done because i can't find a Santa that doesn't look like he needs an AA meeting or has just escape from a mental assylum.

    Ah, sorry another massive post.

    LP, I am so glad those girls have you. It makes me so sad when kids imitate parents that are less than ideal. I really hope that with your positive influence they start reaching their potential. They are really lucky to have an aunt like you.

    lp maybe u could casually ask her what about men she hates? and talk about posititive things about the men around you.. shes probably heard lots of man bashing from both of them by the sounds of it maybe hearing the other side might help just causually now n then talk about good things men in your life do for u n why thats special etc... wow ur so mature n responsible taking all this on i am the same age and with a newborn dnt think id be coping as well as you are bravo!!!

    Jazmum - Glad you had a nice day for your birthday.

    Katie - I dont really have a new yrs resolution, apart from exercising more. Its the same every yr! Before Maddie I was at the gym every 2nd day, but no time these days. And no plans yet for new yrs, probably just sleep!!

    Leemar - I wouldnt be leaving the house to go shopping without DP either! Its hard enough for me with one!

    Hayley - Oh no head lice are such a pain! I remember my mum spending so much time on our hair when we were younger (i have 2 sisters) getting rid of lice. Then we'd be clean and one would catch it again and we'd all have it. Such a mission!! I hope you can get rid of them and keep them away. How long do you think the girls will be with you for?

    Maddie has been sleeping really well lately, however does anyone else have problems with putting bubs down to sleep and they are really unsettled until their next feed iykwim? Maddie is usually fed, bathed and in bed by 7, but is very unsettled, I have to keep going in an popping the dummy back in place. This goes on until around 8.30 - 9.00 when I top her up and then she goes to sleep perfectly with no hassle. Am I doing something wrong!?

    ETP Hayley just had to add, I second what Noni says, I'm around the same age and dont think I could cope. You are doing so well! I guess you do what you have to do and just get on with it right?

    Noni ~ It's only been one night so far, They're still very excited to be here... I'm not sure i'll cope either but i'm sure going to try Thanks for the advice.

    Hayley ~ Maybe Maddie needs a bigger feed before she goes to bed? Scarlet has a slightly bigger one before she goes down for the night & no top-up. The girls will be with us long-term as far as we know, apparently it's hard for anyone to take them away once they're placed permanently - I have some social workers coming from DOCs on Wednesday to "talk" to us (i suspect it will be more like interrogation) & to check out the house so we will know for sure after that.

    Noni, get ready to chuck out all your plastic toys LOL - they do homemade stuff in Steiner.

    LP, the best best stuff for headlice (we've had occasion to trial a few) is the Wild Child gear - you can get it at Woolllies. It's all natural stuff, there's a combing solution which I found really good and there's also a single dose treatment which kills lice for when they're really crawling with them. The comb that comes in the box is by far the best comb we've used too. HTH, they're a pain if you don't get them properly!

    Hayley, it's quite normal for babies to have an unsettled time each day. We've had a bit of up and down a few evenings, goes on until a bit later when she finally hits the deep sleep. The more tired she is, the more shennanigans we get (just a theory I'm working on) LOL.

    How's everyone's Chrissy preps going...I *still* haven't done my chrissy cards (!) It'll be the last minute like every other year I suppose!

    MD - The doctor did nothing on Friday. Told him to take Imodium on Saturday if he still had the diarrohea. He hates taking medication so has only had a few, took one this morning which held if off until about 1/2 hour ago. So he has had 4 days of diarrohea. The chemist didn't have any charcoal tablets today, will try another one tomorrow. He needs a certificate if he isn't back at work on Wednesday so I think he needs to try and go to the doctor tomorrow, but he doesn't see what the point is as there is nothing they can do for him.

    Noni, I'm fully in favor of steiner schools, would love to have DD1 in them from the beginning (would *really* have suited her personality) but because we have to move around there's no guarantee I could've kept her in the steiner system, I don't think it's good for them to swap into and out of it kwim? Yep pretty exxy. There's one here in ACT and it's around that price too, but you'd be surprised at how non-hippy it actually is, we went to the open day and there were lots of conservative middle class types there. I guess if it's something you really want you've still got a few years yet to plan how you're going to attack it financially.

    I haven't checked E's gums but something's up with that child right now, v. unsettled.

    Cally, your poor DH, it sounds terrible! He's not having any milk products is he, you can end up with temporary lactose intolerance after gastro which manifests as ongoing diarrhoea. I reckon he'll get some relief from the charcoal if you can find it, the body doesn't absorb it at all so it's not like taking regular medicine.
