    Last year, I told hubby that we should both take our daughters bday in February off work and do something special with her. I reminded him last week and he thought one of his staff might be on leave that week, and he just came home and told me that she is on leave so he can't take the day off. For eff's sake, I told him about it probably 6 months ago, and I just think it's logical to spend the day with her! It's only the second birthday she's ever had! I'm going to take the day off and have loads of fun with her while he's at work.

    Yes! This is what I try to get through their heads! The worst of the repercussions are in the days following. Gahhhh... I'm glad someone understands because my friends sure dont.

    I'm sorry to hear they don't understand. Many of our friends have heard how hard it's been for us so they're more sympathetic, but some of my extended family smirk when I tell them I have to go home for her bedtime. When they do that I just smile and tell them when she's screaming like a maniac at 3am I'll be calling them up and putting dd on the phone so they can share in the fun.

    It's hard for people who haven't had a difficult sleeper to know what it's like. Which is like a special kind of flaming, deep, dark hell!

    Just saw on Facebook one of my best friends has been on leave since before xmas. Hasn't been away. Just hanging around at home.
    I live less than a km from her and haven't seen her, heard from her or even know she was on leave.
    I'm still waiting for my last call to be returned.
    She's met DS 3 times in 4 months.

    Big hugs! I KNOW exactly how you feel I've been there.... When I was on maternity leave I was completely gobsmacked how little others initiated contact or responded to my attempts. I felt very abandoned and isolated.


    If I lived near you I'd be calling you back in a heartbeat for a catch up to discuss cosmetics and online shopping xx

    I broke the app!
    I got a shiny new name. The app doesn't like it and now it would seem I've locked myself out of the app for trying too many times !

    I just saw a rat outside my window. Now I won't be able to sleep. Ever again.
