    I posted a long post yesterday and it obviously didn't work

    BK, sounds like bubba is behaving and staying put... but Ruby... a 4.30am start to the day is not on. I laughed when I read your post about divorce...I'm sure our husbands were made from the same blueprint. I'm usually whinging 'in my head' about what he isnt doing too and function so much better when he's not around I love not having to worry about and clean up his mess when he's not there. Did I sound like a parrot then... that's because it is exactly like that in our house.

    Amum, I feel your pain. I have Amberly set for 1 day a week in childcare next month. I'm terrified.. even thinking of pulling the pin. Am so worried she's just going to constantly get sick and that she can't fend for herself or say when she's not happy. I like your idea Sonja of a ten minute play before leaving. I worry too with all of A's allergies that someone will stuff up and feed her something they shouldn't. Major worry wart mum here.
    Moongazer, I like the sound of your daycare!


    Jfb, I like your $20 bucks a pay saving idea, definately something to be said for that.
    Kismet, I'm gagging just reading your post. Only one more day.

    Tired, hope you're doing ok and hanging in there.

    AFU, first jab last night, 7 more to go and folli scan this Friday. Strangely weird going through all of this again.

    BK - Evie went through a stage where she cried but I worked out she didn't like the carer I handed her too, when another one took over her care she was fine. She has cried a few times lately but she's been teething, clingy & grumpy, but I am reassured by the carers that she is fine once I leave. I have stayed with her if she is really upset & settled her but it would be hard to do that if you have to rush off to work. Most of the time she is fine. The carers have said kids generally settle easier if they attend more than once a week. I didn't send Evie today and she doesn't go back until 19th Jan so I'm wondering if she will have trouble settling back in.

    Amum - yes it's hard when you send them off for the 1st time, I cried on my way out of the carpark, I felt like a bad mum particularly as Evie was only 6 months. I'm much more comfortable with it now that she's older. At Kade's age he will have so much fun with the other kids and the activities they do. I was handed Evie's activity scrap book last week and she has done so much, I didn't realise. They also did up a cd I paid $5 for (fund raiser) of all the photos they've taken of her through out the year, haven't got around to look at that yet. Good luck with your kid minding, that's alot of kids to care for but I'm sure they will have fun at your place.

    Alittle - lucky you can scrape in before xmas, I thought most clinics cut off by now.

    Not so sure I'd call myself a saint, I'd feel better if I didn't have to be so strict with this girl but it's paid off, she was very well behaved today and ate everything without me trying to coax her plus she's been sleeping thru, but I don't think I've come out of this unscathed, not feeling too well atm and was almost stuck with her for another night bcs the mum has issues & needs to stay in hosi however I told her I have way too much to do before xmas so she has found someone else to mind her..huge relief bcs was beginning to think I'd have her over xmas. My job is done!

    kismet: thank god its over, i hpe u arent coming down with something..there is a cold and a gastro bug doing the rounds (i got the cold one of course, couldnt have gotten a bit of gastro just b4 my weigh in ffs LOL)....

    ladies with the daycare: honestly H loves it, most kids do, they get to socialise and do things i never have the time or imagination for like art and craft, H apparently eats better when there cos he sees all the kids eating etc...also YOU get a break and TBH it makes me a better mum when ive had a few hours of "me time". amd omg the $hit u can get done around the house without a toddler there is amazing!!! most days i work when H is at daycare but occasionally i dont and i DO really look forward to it.....desperately look forward to it!!!

    alittle: i know weird to start jabbing again isnt it? i must admit i found it a reallllllllll drag second time around, i knew i wasnt going to last long....good luck. lets hope its a BFP for you.

    well, H did not go to sleep til 10.20pm...., i KNEW that would happen as DH told me he had a "nap" on the way home at 6pm....he just sooked and whinged for 1.5 hrs...all i could think about it was sleep sleep sleep i was so tired...i ended up leaving him in his cot for 12 minutes to cry and locked myself in the bathroom cos i was getting annoyed..but i thougt i have to learn to cope with being tired and a whinging kid/s so pump up and stay calm and i did and the last time i went back in he all but fell alseep as soon as i picked him up the bugger.......so one minute later my head hit the pillow and i was out like a light and i didnt wake all night ....still shagged, still needed another 4 hours sleep .

    JFB my girls loved daycare and kindy, but still mostly cried at the drop off times (which is what my comments were about). I agree most kids do love it (and parents!) but they still often cry when dropped off. Sometimes i think it's a habit they get into.

    God i do not miss being pregnant and looking after kids. I used to fall asleep in the middle of games with the girls when i was pregnant with Marc i was so exhausted.

    sonja: ive only just started to notice this tiredness that seems to seep into your bones in the past 2 weeks or so....not a fan. i agree as well, H loves it BUT he does tend to cry a bit sometimes as well. i started him at 11.5 months, this time my DH might have to be Mr Mom for a few months as i dont have all the annual and LSL i had with H so my money runs out in october / novemeber, however i really dont want to put baby in daycare til its almost 12months for the sake of few $$$ (even tho we cant survive on DH's wage alone for long) so my DH could go on LSL half pay and me go back almost full time for few months..in fact i secretly covet this a bit cos i KNOW he thinks being a SAHM is a bludge and i want to see suffffffffffffffffffffffer .

    Thanks for all your replies. Sonja the ladies at daycare encourage us not to hang around as they reckon Ruby is ok once we leave. Jfb, I agree. I reckon it's got to be good fof them too. God knows I'm not sitting around with paint, glue and glittery starts all day! Plus they spend a lot of time out doors. Amum I hope j haven't given you a negative perspective on childcare. I really do think it'd good for Ruby and I was really wanting to hear others experiences of the drop off. With Ruby though, she can cry when I leave the room, only to be fine 2 minutes later, so I think ive just got a little drama queen on my hands. kismet, ruby definitely has a fave carer too. When Jeanie is there to hand her to she is so much better. We also drop her off right on morning tea (yep, she lives her food), so she gets to sit down and have fruit and milk to distract her. We also try to pick her up at 4 which is when Jeanie knocks off, and by which time she's pretty over it too. I would LOVE to have a child that is wrapt when I drop them off, but I guess she just isn't like that yet, will be interesting to see how the 2 days go next year. I've also noticed since she's gone to daycare that she initiates more independant play at home which is a good thing too

    Well OB app this morn. No news. Still just waiting. Looking very unlikely now that bubs will come before Christmas. Just hoping now that he comes before the new year so I don't lose the Medicare rebate and have to pay the hospital excess again. Lol

    BK - Evie gets excited most of the time when we pull up in the car park of the centre which makes me feel good about sending her & it's around morning tea time too, just sometimes she's not in the mood. Last time I picked her up she took about 10 minutes to notice me she was having such a good time.
    How frustrating if you lose the rebate, but I was just thinking today when I dropped off temporary kid to her mum today & skooted off to do some shopping what a $hit time of year to have a newborn baby right on xmas. I do hope he comes before the 31st though

    JFB - I felt like passing out in the shops today I was so tired, if only I could have shut my eyes and kept walking on auto pilot. I love how you think...getting DH to stay home with the kids & suuufffffeeerrr

    Well ladies not long til Chrissy now and we get to celebrate with our beautiful little babies and families. We've all come such a long way since the poor responders/over 35s and other threads. Makes me feel very grateful (albeit fat and uncomfortable) to be celebrating with my beautiful little girl.

    Have a great Christmas everyone. I love you all and love sharing the journey with you all xx

    I wish you all a very merry Christmas enjoy sharing with your bubs what a very special time for all of us.

    Kel hope bubs decides to come this year for you so you get all your rebates.
    Kismet what a great friend you are to take on this little girl. I hope you are feeling rested now that she has left.
    Moon how is little Archie doing.
    Sonja I hope you get some well deserved rest over the next week.

    Jaye is also a clingy baby and has been since she was tiny. When she's awake she is on me all the time. Sometimes she'll play but even then comes for a hug every 5 or so minutes. I am putting her into daycare 2 days a week from Jan as I think she needs to start socializing a bit and realizing that I am not her whole world. But she is gorgeous and too cute and a little joy so not complaining too much.

    Merry Christmas again xxxx
