    thanks for updating loco. it is all one learning curve after the other. it is often the toddler that has the rough ride and the baby just fits right in. hugs, marie.

    Anyway I think I'm getting the hang of it all and my patience is building slowly. What a learning experience I tell you.
    Good on you that's wonderful your getting some wins.

    We had a bad day in town today. Thankfully ds1 has crashed in the car on the way home and should be nicer this evening.

ONE! TWO! you will have the childs attention, and feel like a bit of a fool, but it might break the habit. and also remember, each child is different, and the dynamics in a family will change as life moves on. even bad days come to an end. hugs, marie.
    Oh Marie you've done it again. I started using your counting yell today and it worked. DS does not like it and stopped doing what he was doing (after being asked to stop 3 times) and ran over to me "No Mummy!!!" I said well if you don't like it do what I asked and I'll stop and he did!!! Yay. It's worked 3 times so far. Trying not to use it too much so he doesn't get used to it. It's going to be my last resort thing. You're a genius!!!!!

    The car trip home was 1 1/2 hrs and he would have slept for about an hour. We had a nice dinner and an enjoyable bath time.
    Ds2 is down for the night and ds1 is in his bed. He isnt asleep but shouldn't be far off.

    Ahhh just enjoying a hot cup of tea.i don't think I will be up too late tonight either.
    Ahhhh Farmboys nice cup of tea that's the best part. I actually got a tea break in today to doesn't it make everything go away for that few minutes hehe

    Started DS on high strength omega3 10 days ago and have noticed a steady improvement in his behaviour. Today he was such a great kid, no meltdowns,no tantrums, actually listening!!! Started it to help his speech delay but if this is an added benefit then YAY

    Blackmores omega triple. Research shows that high doses of EPA helps speech delay and also behaviour. I give him one capsule a day, squeezed onto a spoon. He takes it ok. You get 150 capsules in the jar so will last for ages but shop around I have seen it for around $50 a jar but got it at Chemist Warehouse for $28.
