Mel, I totally agree about socialization. I love having Delilah at home, but soon I want her around more kids. I think your plan for daycare once the baby comes is perfect! Feel better soon.
Sugar, that is a great line for 11dpo. One day at a time is all you can do.
Vicky, you might have your Hero, but you are my hero! What an amazing night!
I forgot to mention that Delilah turned 11 months yesterday! She took 2 really long naps again yesterday and slept from 7pm to 7am last night! I'm hoping for good naps again today. We're going to a bbq this afternoon and I need her in good spirits. We're off to a good start with 12 hours of sleep last night. Tomorrow is Tim's bday and I didn't get him anything. Now that I don't work, I dont have my own money. It seems weird to me to buy him something with the credit card when he'll be the one paying the bill. I might just get him a card. Or nothing. LOL!
Hearty, you can find other ways to make him happy, for free. I have Alistair 'draw' for Alex sometimes, and we've made cards...although Alistair's attention span is like 30 seconds lol. Have fun at the BBQ today. I'm so glad the sleep is going so well!!
Round, I see you're looking at the thread, how are you? I think your vacation sounds much needed....so if I am reading right it's kid free? Lucky duck lol!
Mel, thank you so much for that perspective. You are right, socialization is so important. Right now Alistair is so close to me and I love our special one on one time, but you're right that that doesn't have to go away. He is nearing 2 now and he loves other kids. I just wish the job paid more....then I wouldn't hesitate as much. How are you feeling this weekend?
Vicky, lmao I'm so jealous of you sleeping in until 2 but of course I wasn't out until 6. Sounds like an epic night.
Sugar, that test looks perfect.Congrats. how are you feeling?
Sugar, it's looking great. I'm so hopeful for you. How was your test today?
Allie, I'm doing good. The trip is 'kid free'! Sounds great in theory, but I'm starting to panic now. I know I'm going to bawl my eyes out the first day. Plus, I'm a little worried about my hubby. His anxiety gets really bad on planes. I think once we get settled, we'll enjoy ourselves, but that first day is going to be rough.
Lucy, so happy for you. Sounds like your little one is doing great.
I like what Mel said about socialization. You espically notice it when kids start school, Maddy had no problem blending in, but the kids that didn't go to daycare had a really hard time. It made me feel really good about my decision to go back to work.
Hearty, glad to hear Delilha is sleeping better now. She's so good! I'm so jealous!
Vicky, glad to hear you got your drunk-on! You're a trooper, I'd never last till 6am...espicially in heels! I'm getting old!
My baby boy is really walking now. He can take 5 or 6 steps now without falling. It's crazy, he looks too little to be walking!
Well, I'm off for a walk with the kids. It's so cold here it was snowing yesterday...but I need some fresh air...plus we're walking to the cupcake place for some sugar and coffee!
Snow? I can't imagine. We don't get snow here ever. I grew up where there was snow, but not in May.
Well, the sleep thing is getting weird. Delilah took an hour nap in the morning which is pretty normal. Then her afternoon nap was 1.5 hours. This is after sleeping 12 hours. I actually woke her up from her second nap because we had to go to the bbq and I didn't want it affecting her nighttime sleep. But she was super cranky the rest of the afternoon! I thought all of that sleep would get her in a good mood. Growth spurt maybe? She doesn't seem sick at all. Don't get me wrong. I love that she sleeps. But she's sleeping more than ever right now and was cranky and tired all afternoon. Strange.
Our bars are open until 2am to serve liquor, but the clubs can stay open all night as long as they stop serving by 2am. Lends itself to lots of drug use.
Hi girls, sorry I haven't been updating but I can't bring myself to talk. I've been spending the weeks up north so dont have internet except at weekends. I got af today, I really wanted bfp, for some positive focus and something to hold it together for.
Sorry about the team yellow Gibs, congrats sugar and happy V Day Luce.
Nato Im so sorry Hun thinking of you and here if you need anything sending you the biggest
Vicky wow I could last in the heels but no way would I've made it out that late. Glad you had a great time.
Round that's crazy about the snow hope you had a good day.
Amanda that's great about Delilahs sleeping. I hate it when I have to wake Benjamin from a nap it always leaves him in such a grumpy mood. He could do with some sleeping tips as he's starting waking up earlier in the mornings and I don't function that well. Happy Birthday to Tim.
Sugar that's great news keeping everything crossed for you.
