When kids are going through one of their "interesting" phases you will often feel frustration to the point of breakdown and question your ability as a mother but your ability to do anything at all!! It feels bloody awful and isolating but I can promise 99% of mothers have had a time where they have felt the same as you do now. Let me tell you when Ollie kicks off I bet he'd give Marcus a run for his money!!! The children that have the largest meltdowns are most often those who are most spoilt so I doubt ppl are thinking you do nothing with him. Biting is a phase lots of babies go through. Brandon got bitten by a kid in reception and they were 5!! I know it's difficult but try to make a conscious effort to remind yourself everything you do for him is what you feel is right at that time and you always have his best interest at heart. Also we learn being a mother is something that we need to get better at as we go along it's a learning process. Every mother is different, every baby is different. I personally think you're doing a great job from what I've seen/read on here n fb xx

Honey we are so lucky to have you as you really have been there , done it and got the war wounds to prove it. It just seems frustrating as other parents seem to flaunt their perfect children who are well behaved and run marathons at 11 months haha! Aside from the reflux he was an easy baby, we didn't have sleep issues like Samie or Abbi so I guess it's our turn! Think il go peg the laundry out... Yes it's almost 9.30 pm but meant to be nice tomorrow and I don't have to be on suicide watch this way.... Yes he launches head first off any surface, tries to eat snails or stones and generally thinks he's mr bond. Pegging washing with him out takes an hour and If I put him in the swing he will moan I'm not pushing him!!

betty we are so near now with the house scaffolding finally came down yesterday looks amazing just getting tradesmen to come when they say now and get things done!! hoping in next couple of months!!

kix have a great time in menorca, ooo baby no2 exciting! think we will think about another once we in house and settled a bit but at same time i want to enjoy allister a bit more but i know he will love having a little brother or sister! aaron's speech sounds amazing, allister has quite a few words now but couldn't have a conversation with him, thats brill about him telling you he needs wee poo etc, allister tries for days before he has a poo and then its massive but i don't know whether i should go doctors or not, he doesn't seem affected by it, he eats loads of raisins and that.

i am also back on cerazette! betty i was on microgynon but kept bleeding when shouldnt have been so thats why i went on to cerazette!

diddums such a cute pic!

anna dont blame yourself, they just go through these phases and some seem to like other kids others tend to bully them.. allister is starting terrible twos early i think, he is absolutely obsessed with cars and steering wheels and when i take him off car rides etc i have the worst fits and screaming ever, its a nightmare but hes got to learn! i have also found that distracting him is better than telling him no with some things.. he kept putting stones in his mouth and when i said no he would laugh and do it more, he knew when he was doing it he wasnt meant to as he'd keep lookin to see if i was watching.. when i said eee thats not nice and said come on lets do something else he would stop as he wasnt getting the reaction..its just trial and error with a lot of things!

Hi everyone, hope everything's ok? Physio had a cancellation today so slotted Marcus in. He is hyper mobile in his joints but other than that ok the are going to monitor him 3/4 months and assess once walking if he needs any aids. Se feels he is strong enough of his legs to walk any day now if he wanted she was really pleased how much he's done in 3 weeks nd also commented on how "active" and full of beans he is, she coldnt quit believe it when I said he's always this hyper (seriously he's like a whirlwind). If we co,d tame his tantrums and biting we would be winning xxx

the worst thing ever so far happened to Sophia this morn. My bro and his gf are down with her little boy who is 4 and He opened the stair gate and they started walking down a step. Sophia then turned to get him to pick her up he didnt get it and she pulled him over and they both rolled to the bottom. ive never ran so fast within a second I was at the bottom of the stairs. She didn't pass out she was crying for about 40 mins and kept going all spaced out then when I decided to take her hospital she started to be ok. She has carpet burns to her spine and hips a scuff on her shoulder and ankle and a little cut on her head a big red mark is now showing on her cheek so I'm expectig a black eye. Just thinking the worst with internal bleeds etc etc but she seems ok just gone down for her nap but its normal nap time so fingers crossed =o(

Oh no Samie, how awful! Bet you literally flew down those stairs! Hope Sophia recovers quickly. If you're worried at all just take her to hospital again. Better safe than sorry x
