I adore DD and love how she's my little shadow but OMG it's so hard to get anything done with her following me around for a chat!! I will try and soak it all up though because in a few short years, she'll hate my guts lol.
It bugs me when people who aren't related assume they can take on the title of aunty or uncle. My sisters friend just put up a photo on Facebook of her and my niece and referred to herself as aunty. Um no lady, she already has real aunties, back off 😜
my generation was always told to call strangers aunty, uncle. it was a generational thing. I know I had a whole bunch of neighbours, and family friends who would be 'aunt' 'uncle', but actually no relation at all. I don't really see any harm in it, but I can understand where you are coming from. marie.
A few today...
I am making dinner. Have a 2 min break so make myself a drink. I sit on the couch and DS takes my drink, proceeds to drink half of it and gives it to DH to drink the rest. I grumble about it and get 'well make yourself another one' - I have to finish cooking and wait for the next 2 min break. Besides it was MY drink.
DH has whinged about being bored at work. Gets home says hi to DS and plays with him for a few mins. Then DS comes with his nappy off wanting to pit it in the bin. I am making the bed. Call out to DH to help him *hear crickets* so I deal with DS and give him a new nappy... and find DH lounging on the couch.
Also, too freaking hot. Just go away at least there was sun to do my washing today but still too damn hot.
E.T.A. I shower DS while dinner cooks and then when we are finished put his pj's and night nappy on the couch right next to DH and tell him its there. 2 mins later he is yelling out 'what pj's do I use tonight?' *sigh *. I tried.

Love venting threads.
dh's SIL will send us mail and we're either aunty/uncle (even though said mail item has no relation to her child) or "mr and mrs". it's very presumptuous of her to assume I'm a mrs (I use ms).
can't she just use our given names like a normal person?
