    My sister about my DS only a having one hour nap during the day and her DD (one month younger) who sleeps for 3+ "well I can't help that my kids are just more laid back than yours"

    DS is laid back, he just loves to be in on the action!

    It's not really a phrase but my dim-witted SIL says 'use' instead of 'you guys'...all the time...in verbal conversation and in text/FB messages. It just grates me every time!

    "What are use up to? I'm going to come visit use soon".

    She also comments on my FB photos that my DD is 'gawjus'...it worries me because I'm not sure if she's doing it on purpose or if she actually thinks that's how you spell 'gorgeous'.

    I worry about when I get older and the younger generation and running the world.

    My MIL told me, that she refused to acknowledge I was pregnant until my 12 week scan. Excuse me, I believe my constant morning sickness begs to differ. I thought it was really harsh, made it hard especially because we normally have a really great relationship.


    Waiting on the arrival of William

    I'm finding the 'check your dignity at the door' thing when your having a baby starting to grate on me.

    Actually no - I'm just as much a human being deserving of respect and dignity the day I'm birthing a baby as I do any other day.

    I agree yes many of my inhibitions are left at the door but at no time is my dignity put aside.

    my nana was told the same after her son died. the woman then went on to say 'its not like he was your only child, at least you have a few spare children'
