    Well done Sara, sounds quite a big effort, brings back memories!! I have two sons (ages 35 and 37) one was 10lb and the other 9lb 6oz. :wha:

    CC I like 'Spike' for a name that is cool.:coolgleamA:

    Sara I usually make soup for friends when they come home from hospital but:
    1 it's to darn far to lug the pot:bored: and
    2 it's too jolly hot for soup:rant_red2: ( for you anyway).

    :aparty1:I don't know how to Whisper can some1 help me..

    Thanks to every one for your comments,

    I think dennis should be called SUNNY.
    As he was born on one well hot day, in a room with no aircon..

    When i go to register the birth next thursday, If hubby cant get time off work to come with me. I told him i'm calling him Sunny.
    Think he will get the time of work.

    Well what a good baby i have, goes to sleep at 12 at night till 4.30am

    then till 10am. then till 2. then 6.

    So i get time to tidy the house, feed animals, do all the washing and extra washing dennis gives me, how does a small baby make so much mess though.

    And why do they need so many things. Nappies,wipes,nappy bags,cream,bottles,extra clothing,

    I went out today, to the play place with my son who's 3. i had to get dennis things he my need . wow took me over an hour just to do that, no more being able just to nip out.

    But its good, i'm so enjoying it. As he is my last baby, cant wont go though that again.

    I'd like to say CC your card was very funny, i have it up with all the rest,

    KATE B THANKS FOR YOUR CARD, AND GIFT. that made my day ill take dennis shopping next week to spend it, your so kind.

    'Spike' HHHMM Spike marks.. hhmmm:aparty1::046::046:

    Ok better go got to get bottles ready, as for tea, looks like take away. o what happend to all that free time i had. Thanks again your all so sweet.

    we all know why, But i feel i need to say something, :group-love::group-love::group-love::group-love::group-love::group-love::group-love::group-love::group-love::group-love:

    I also think every one will agree with me,


    I miss you,

    After reading back threw this topic i to can understand what a pain in the ass i was, moaning all the time,

    But this little website meant a lot to me,

    As most of you know i have hardly any family, haven't seen my mum since i was 15, i'm now 34. so she wasn't there for me to talk to, nor has she seen any of my children.
    So i found talking on this site helped me allot,

    loved reading everyone's comments, so i do understand what you said.

    All im saying now is, come back and give me a big kiss, coz i miss you, and i'm sorry for moaning..

    I now want to share everyday my new baby does something special with you all.

    Last time I saw my mom was at my wedding when I was 19. I'm now 44. She hasn't seen my boys and I'm glad. She was an awful mother and for years I dreaded turning out the same way. But I think I'm a great mom and its because I was determined not to be like her! Sounds like you are a wonderful mom Sara, those kids are so lucky.

    So had to have another one.

    But after 10mins they finaly got a reaction,Thank god,
    She said he has loads fluid in his ears. So were ok..

    Ive been putting nasosal drops up his nose to help him breath.

 my mums website,
    This is a woman who got rid of all five children, to stay with a very evil man, and people think she is a saint, coz she loves cats.
    When i was a child i had to clean then out before school, which meant going to school, smelling of cats, coming home from she we had to clean the cats. At weekend help out at jumbles, or carboots, never going anywhere for kids, no hoildays,
    No hugs, never got one single kiss.
    As for my stepdad, well when i right my book, its going to be a new1 seller coz he is a sick man who needs help, All this has made me a good mum, who spends every day, hugging and kissing my children, We may live in a little house, but its clean and tidy and i do it all. I also have time for my children, So i hope one day, she does look back and see how crule she was to her children..

    • CommentTimeJul 13th, 2009 11:44pm (Jul 13th 2009)
    No, the HV won't come out until the midwife has finished coming, and I think the midwife only comes out twice now. That may be fine when everything's going well, but for moms that need some extra support it isn't there. It's no wonder so many suffer post natal depression. I hope your HV will be able to reassure you about Dennis's hearing.

    I am so pleased we have both come out of our childhood as good parents. Shobhna - I'm sorry you had a bad childhood too. Congrats on getting your relationship back with your mom. I won't be doing that!

    Jonny they should of made more men like you, Your sure are a nice chap. Thank you.

    Kateb I did get post natal depression with my last son,

    Think i just wanted a family to come and see my children, so all that didn't help,
    A few more years on, as you do get older,
    You learn to live with what you have, and make more friends on the way.
    That's what i have done.

    I have an old man who is 83, he lives about 6 doors down from me,

    He is my children's granddad has been for about 6years now, He never married no children, so he treats mine Like his own grandchildren.

    Which is nice, I help him with his shopping, hubby does his gardening and anything that needs doing in the house,

    I have two friends Adam and Niki,

    who hubby and I met when we was out clubbing about 8years ago, they are my children's aunty and uncle.
    So i have a made up family, who want to be my family, Silly really, but it helps.

    Sara, I loved the school hols when my children were small. No daily clock watching or having to get ready, all that treking through whatever weather to school!

    Hols are lazy days, usually starting all in the one bed, then slobbing around, no structured timetable. Just make sure eve meal all with Daddy is organised, planned a few days ahead saves a lot of anxt.

    Invite M-in-Law to stay a while, make it VERY clear that she comes to run your home for you while you concentrate on the baby!!! Just be so grateful, she will be your friend for ever and you will have a nice rest..

Medium temperature, but the longer you leave it to fester, the better it tastes. I chuck it on a plate with rice. Job's a good 'un!

    Ollie School hoildays, means lots of days out. me and kids when hubbys at work.
    Were quite old fashion in my house, so always have tea together.

    No more room at the in ..

    I have known m in law nearly 9 years, n no she wouldnt help around the house, She has a big beautiful house, runs her own old peps home. So she defo hasnt time to help me.

    expect to be waited on YES!!
    she made it clear 3 yrs ago, When i gave birth to her 1st grandson,
    That she dont do babysitting either.

    better to be cautious though.

    I'm going to put Ma under house arrest soon. She is already poorly and the last thing I want her to get is the flu. I think it would finish her off.
    • CommentTimeJul 21st, 2009 2:57pm (Jul 21st 2009)
    You just need to make sure you have good hand hygiene at all times, and remember to catch it, bin it, kill it. (Use a tissue, throw it away, wash your hands). It is believed that it is less prevalent in the USA and Aus because they are better at following those rules and the population isn't as dense as here. If you're breastfeeding Dennis (Sara, not Shobhna!) then he's getting the best protection he can. How long are people going to shut themselves away for? Ordinary flu is a lot more dangerous!

    Do you panic over ordinary flu'Nope.. I got mega flu when pregant. Couldnt even lift a pen. Good that wasnt nice, couldnt take anything for it.

    It my hubby, he makes everyone wash hands and use that gel stuff before they wake up... I think im washing the skin of my hands, they get washed that much.

    We will all be ok i think.#
    Anyway what a day rain rain rain, no playing out for anyone, so i cleaned house, charlotte played on pc, athur played on the play zone game. where he has to excercise, bit like a wee but a lot cheaper.

    Hope we get some sun soon..

    Us oldies are better protected from the flu' as we have our injections every Autumn and build up the immunity over the years.
    No sense in taking risks with Mum though init as she's not too well just now. She could possibly be quite relieved to have an excuse not to have to toddle out!

    Make sure you use handcream too Sara. Constant washing takes away any 'good' bacteria that takes care of your hands and stops them getting dry.
