    Hi

    Have read all the posts from the old thread. Quick fly by visit sending everyone

    ellie - 11 weeks wow! I saw a photo of Alex yesterday at three days old - so hard to believe they are so tiny when they are born (it's a good thing too!).

    Take care everyone.

    Kaz- hope no more gastro there, seems to be a bit of it around at the moment. Hope there is more good than bad sleep wise.

    Ali- work sounds full on there. My Df is a teacher and he says teaching maths makes him very lucky cause less preperation than others cause maths always stays the same! It must be rewarding tho if you are enjoying it. Very exciting bout your up and coming holiday! I'm so jealous! When are you off to the zoo?

    OP- Yes I remember those evening cluster feeds clearly! I used to just sit in bed, tv on and watch tv or dvd and have her on my lap sleeping or feeding.

    Ellie- glad sleep times overnight going well but not surprising you still feel stuffed, its hard work!

    Malyna- lol at the pool story can imagine his shock! Yeah I wouldnt bother with swimming if he isn't in to it, we'll prolly start Emily around 2.5-3 same age as Ash was.

    We are finally off to get Emilys 12mth immunisations tomoz. Thought now they're getting up to 18mths I might get it done. So booked in tomor, great fun not.

    I haven't been well, had nausea and vomity problems last week and now my vertigo has come back so annoying, have ENT appt in 4 weeks to check out the vertigo.

    Hi ladies,

    Shell - no good about feeling off! Hope you are feeling better soon hun. Hope the specialist can shed some light on the vertigo. GL with the injections! Fraid to say DD didn't like them at all - she screamed something shocking. Afterwards was ok though!

    Lilima - hope your computer is fixed soon!

    Malyna - how's things? How's Mr A?

    Kaz - you are definitely not alone with the tanties!!! DD is getting worse, I swear. Yay on the decision to try for another, when you are ready! Any sign of the gastro returning?? Hope you are ok.

    Olive - how's sleep going? Still having issues??

    Ali - how fun was the zoo? Sounds like an awesome deal with splitting the costs. Fiji in 5wks?? I am so jealous - we loved Fiji. Trying to decide if we can go about this time next year. Where are you staying? Oh and well done again on the weight loss!!!

    Hi to everyone else!!!

    AFU: had an awful lunch yesterday at my cousin's house - lunch was nice but DD's behaviour was shocking. She stepped on my nephew, hit two of the other kids, smacked another with a toy and then grabbed his face - like grabbed his eyes and his mouth - and pulled.

    I am at a loss as to what to do... I grabbed her (quite forcefully) and told her sternly "No" and said not to do that, but she just doesn't listen/care/respond. We ended up going home after that because I was sick of chasing her around, terrified to sit down and enjoy a cuppa because I was too worried about who she was hurting.

    I am really frustrated that I can't trust her to play nicely with other kids. I am constantly on edge at playgroup and even when I duck to the loo or something and ask my sister (or det on Tuesdays!) to keep an eye on her, I still stress that she's going to do something. Its really starting to upset me. I never thought I would be *that* parent.

    My sister thinks she does these things when she is bored/tired, but what am I supposed to do - follow her around and make sure she is engaged all the time? Isn't she supposed to be learning independent play? If I am constantly trying to shove toys and games in her face, how is that developing independent play?

    If she's tired, what do I do - whip her off home? We usually don't go out unless she's had a sleep or will have one soon after, but yesterday she then refused to sleep on the way home/at home, so by the time DH got home she was completely overtired and lost the plot.

    I just don't know what to do!

    OP - Sorry to tell you but this is just the start of more to come! Most kids display this sort of behaviour. On the weekend E hit a baby on the head with a toy and eye gouged another. I just don't think that they realise that it hurts.
    I think e has learnt some of it off J though.

    She is quite sick atm. Has been vommiting for the past few days. I have reverted back to putting her in the sling sitting on my hip so that I can get some stuff done/ She is asleep in the sling at the moment. Unfortunately James has had to watch a stack of TV as I basically need to hold her all day. She has quite a high temp too.

    Shell - I really hope things improve soon.

    Hi to everyone else.
    Goingto sign off now, as my hand is in a awkward position due to thr sling so it is hard to type.

    OP - Alex learnt about gentle from an early age - with one really affectionate, patient cat, who does the most stupid things with alex. But he still hits, but if we say gentle he wont' hit as hard. - I came out of the bathroom one day to find Alex kneeling on the cat, bouncing. The cat was just lying there with eyes that said "See what I do to get fed in this house?" I told Alex off, pulled him off the cat and she just layed there, refusing to move. But then this cat is more of a dog, she comes to see Alex when he cries and will come up to him to say hello and they play together. I've never had a cat like her before, she's such a softy.

    OP- I was thinking maybe try a play pen that you can move her too when she starts getting rough? I think I watched it on tv once and that way they removed the kids from the situation and they soon learnt hang on a sec if I do this I get removed. its just hard at this age cause I don't think they fully understand how much they can hurt someone. And gets tricky for you too dealing with newborn and toddler!

    Meg- oh the poor thing, does she have like a gastro type bug? She keeping fluids down? Is the high temp causing the vomiting or the vomiting come first. Hope it all clears up soon, hard for us mummies too trying to get stuff done, I love my hip sling when they're like that.

    Needles went ok, she got over crying pretty quick. We'll see in a weeks time how the reaction is.
    My birthday today and DF is sick after dodgy chicken last night (lucky the rest of us ate proper home cooked meal!) so I've had to buy my own birthday card from the kids and bake my own cake. Ash is very cute her belief is you can't have a birthday without a party so I've had to decorate the lounge and play party games.

    Olive - Took her to the doctors. She has Tonsilitis (sp) She is on AB's, so hopefully will get better soon. She is SO CLINGY though, I have had her in the sling again this arvo, just so I can have free hands to do stuff.
    I have called work and won't be going in tomorrow. She is too ill for daycare.
