    He loves both.
    He is just so freaking lazy! Seriously... his turn to cook dinner and he always makes something with rice, and asks me to do the rice as mine "is nicer". Defeats the purpose of him cooking once a week!

    I had toast and egg for dinner. He complained all night that he got nothing.
    eeeeek! that would be frustrating. does he have any dishes that he does really well and aren't too much of a bother for him to cook alone?

    I know dh and I definitely have our own strengths in the kitchen. I can't stand frying meat (or cooking meat full stop really, I struggle to know if it's under/overdone) so that's his job. as are curries. whereas I excel at risottos (he always ends up with claggy overdone rice), desserts and all baked items. we just play to our strengths and leave the other one alone or just offer to help peripherally (like washing up as the other is cooking). I can't stand actually cooking with him, our methods differ greatly and I take his "suggestions" as criticism lol.

    He does everything really well, he just doesn't want to do it. Which is why we agreed to once a week. He tells me what he'll cook, and I include it in my shopping. When it comes to doing it, he fobs off enough parts that I may as well do it all.

    Only 1.5 days before I go back again.
    I totally agree! I'm on my 4th day off work with my toddler and while it's nice to have a break from work, I'm already sick of all the games she likes to play lol. I was thinking today of how nice it will be to have an extended period of leave after we have another baby, then I thought - no it won't! I was going crazy by the end of my 6 months off with my first daughter and couldn't wait to get back to work!

    My super tall 2 year old is already too tall for her size 3 shirts, jumpers / jackets and parka that I just bought about a month ago! Just put her parka on to play outside and her belly is showing!! Bloody hell. She's going to be a size 4 at 2 years old!

    Grrr... please stop making plans for our time with the kids. It is not ok, and we will ignore your attempts to "discuss" it- as your version of discussing is hitting us with guilt over and over until we agree.
    Unless it is an important event, it does not need to be done. For god's sake it's on every year! You took them last year as it was your time, this year is our time. Tough. Take them next year.

    @CakeyMumma looks like I should have gotten those cheap size 5 pjs on the weekend. I only got size 3 & 4. I'm kind of hoping he is still in 4 next year.

    Grrr H, you are really dropping the ball lately.

    You were supposed to let your ex know that we were postpoing DSDs music for the next term while we catch up on bills. You've had a month to let her know.
    Did you? No. So she calls me today to yell.
    How is it my fault??

    Reading everyone has tall kids makes me sad DS1 is short because I am. Not freakishly short but one of the shortest in his class and he fits in size 4 clothes. I just made him stop wearing the pair of jeans he got for his 2nd birthday, he is 5.5!
