I didn't get the Keith thing either, but after watching 'the voice' I saw how absolutely lovely he is ... Still not my type but I think he's a really good guy.
so ... I survived my first week back at work, so did bubba & DH.
so glad it's the weekend, I am so tired!
been getting up at 5.20 and getting ready for work before bubba wakes, then when he wakes around 6 hanging out with him til I head out and hand him over to daddy at 7.30.
if I don't get up early I'll barely see him as he's an early to bed boy.
so by 9.30pm I am soooo ready for bed!
now to enjoy my 3 free days
MG, JFB, Sonja - you have to see him live to get it, yeh he does come across all nice guyish but when he's on stage playing his guitar he's hot & has come to bed with me eyes . I like the more ruggard types like Jon Bon Jovi but Keith still passes for me
Fiona - I reckon the 1st week would be the hardest
It has been a very tough week for my family but on a good note my great niece came through her 1st major open heart surgery very well on Tues and is out of intensive care already, such a relief bless her she's only 5 months old poor cherub.
Evie has gone back to bawling her eyes out when I drop her off at daycare, today was particularly bad it really got to me, I would have thought she'd be use to going by now after 2 years, I'm starting to wonder if she doesn't like being there and what is upsetting her as the 1st week she was great?? She is a worry sometimes because she's very timid and I'm not sure if she's comfortable with some of the other kids, I noticed today they're mostly boys and some of their behaviour is a bit rough and she tends to shy away from that.
Kismet, might be worth talking to her main carers to see how she is going there...i wonder has she changed rooms ie in the bigger kids room now? I know at my little playgp that one of the mums little girl runs way from a couple if the boys as they have hurt her and she doesn't like them ....glad to hear ur great neice is ok.
Well h has been in trouble again today for biting the baby...he leaves a mark on her poor skin...god i hope he stops it , he seems to be going thru a naughty streak and weve started limiting tv as he has been watching way too much, my fault as it was a habit when feeding e in the early days, but then he started using the ipad andsomehow knows to get to youtube and watch peppa pig, cars and thinks its HIS toy etc and then dh sometimes gives him his phone to watch stuff ffs...im like come on this is dreadful...so its been cut right back....so of course some tantrums but he gets over it quick. Honestly i felt like i was starting to create a tv monster, so over it.
well done fiona on return o work...im dreading the early wake up...yeh it was like get up at 5.50am , but now with 2 kids i think i will have to get up earlier ....
raining again.....only one month left of summer, come on autumn.
JFB - it is something I'm going to raise with the carers, she will stay away from anyone that has hurt her which is totally natural, I would too but it still concerns me how much they take notice if she's copping any type of 'bullying' (I hate that term for such a younge age but not sure what else to use) & I wonder what they do about it, I know it's normal for younger kids to do these things but it worries me she doesn't know how to 'stick up for herself' yet & it makes her scared, I want her to enjoy being around other kids not be turned off it, it's the main reason I have her in daycare at the moment. I've seen her with my niece's kids and if they so much as push her she gets really upset which doesn't seem to bother most kids & I've seen her run away from them looking terrified, she's never been one to do any pushing/shoving/hitting etc she's always been gentle.
Biting is a tough one to get them to stop, pretty common though, haven't had that problem with Evie so not sure what I'd do, just hope it's a quick passing phase.
Kismet, hope e goes ok? Did u talk to the daycare?
Sonja, how was singapore?
Well ive enrolled E in daycare starting march 25.....i will just leave her there for a few hours....im most worried about her sleeping as she is still bf to sleep so will need to break the habit...i go back on the 8th april so it will give her a little while to settle in ...she will. Be 11 months...hope we go ok.
She'll adjust pretty quickly. While I wasn't feeding Scarlett to sleep at that age she was still a boob addict who never took a bottle and she coped fine. I'm sure E will be fine.
Well school back yesterday and Scarlett started kindy at the school as well. She looked so tiny in her school uniform. MS has been hitting me pretty hard this time which is unusual as I never get it. Marc has also hit the terrible 2s big time which is great timing. Had to basically carry him kicking and screaming into school this afternoon and back to the car. I must look like such a crazy lady some days.
JFB - How often is E going to daycare, how often are you working? I can't believe how fast that time has gone!! I'll be talking to the main carer that knows Evie the most tomorrow. I am now just thinking she has major attachment issues or separation anxiety, yesterday she cried everytime she saw the Big W add with the blue bear on it when the add finished she would wave and say bye bye bear and start crying. Or I just have a weird child. I have no idea where this has come from, she's never been interested in teddy bears until this, now I have dragged out her bears and told her they are better than the tv bear because she can cuddle these ones and she now has to sleep with one of them.
Sonja - it must feel weird for you that both girls are in school now, hope the ms settles down soon.
Kismet, wot did the daycare say? Im going back 2 days per week, maybe do a 5 day fortnight at most and dh will take a rostered day tocover that day etc...
sonja, is marc in daycare?
Yep time flies.
we got back from a few days away....it was a nice break but omfg the kids sleep patterns were completely ruined.......first two night both kids didnt sleep til 11 pm....like never never have they gone to bed so late....we went out for dinner and seriously mil must have given them red cordial or something....so nice dinner but then comeback to spending 2 hours settling the kids to sleep....h slep welllast night but e didnt... Didnt bother going out for tea as not worth the effort!And hallelujah our water tank has been fixed . But off to docs as h has ear infection from swimming of course...
JFB - dc just said it's probably an age thing and at the time 2 boys were hanging off the carer screaming so I understood why she said that. Also the fact at this age they remember more and more and she knows I'm leaving her etc. I asked if something has happened to her to scare her but she wasn't aware of anything. If the other kids are rough with her she's not at the point to know how to tell them to stop. She said Evie does play alot on her own but she also participates in group activities and will join in playing with other kids so they're not worried bcs it could be just her personality being a little shy. All the carers I've spoken to said she usually has a great day after settling down. I know Evie doesn't like change in routine very much either and was kind of expecting her to behave how she's been lately in the 1st week but she was great then, perhaps at that point she didn't realise it was going to be a regular thing
Sounds like your kids don't like change much either, makes it hard sometimes when you want to do some normal things.
