    I wish I could go to a mums group apparently because I had a baby 9 yrs ago I'm not eligible to be part of one. I'll be joining a playgroup when the weather is better. BH keeps my sanity going as all my friends are back at work full time and done with having babies

    That's crazy. There are a few second and third time mum's in the mothers group I go to.

    Yeah the community nurses who arrange the mothers groups here didn't ask me if I wanted to join one after my second child. Was never even an option.

    I'm doing ok, I still read along a bit here & there, but you're right, I haven't posted much for a while.

    I'm doing ok, had a bit of a break from TTC this year - DH & I haven't been great & almost separated. I went to Bali for work & stayed almost a month & we seem to have sorted things out now - he got the message that I was considering not comIng back. I never thought we'd be a couple that got to that point, but with the loss of five babies, five IVF cycles that didn't even get to EPU due to only one egg each time, such bad reactions to the IVF meds that I got very, very sick which then meant that I couldn't run my business properly so that failed & I lost my income & during that time I had several supposedly close friends turn on me & do the exclusion bullying thing when I was at my lowest. So to say our marriage has been under pressure would be an understatement

    Right now things are going along ok, I'm just figuring out what's next with regards to work & my business. DH & I have turned the corner & if we are feeling solid in a few months then we'll look at DE options.

    I wish you all the best with your family too - I don't think you've had an easy time of it lately, hugs
    I'm so glad to hear from you @Summer. I'm so sorry to hear you've been having a rough time big hugs to you.
    I really hope that things come together for you in every sense. You always came across as such a nice genuine hubber and it was obvious you cared very deeply for your DSS (I hope the custody arrangements are working well now). You deserve happiness. And thanks for your well wishes too xxx

    I am shocked that DS slept from 5.30-5.30 overnight. He fell asleep on the floor. Normally I can barely get him into bed by 7.30 and he gets up by 6 at the latest (he hates sleep for some reason).

    Was nice to have a quiet evening.

    My DS had a good night too. 7:45 til 6:55, only woke up once for 26 min!

    I am confused...am i 'damaging' my boy by being a full time sahm and not having him in day care? He is only 2. I feel lucky to be able to be home with my babies but should i think about putting him into day care to have some "socialisation"??? He's such an introvert and doesn't seem interested in other kids but is that because I've been home with him his whole life or is it just him....

    we're all "damaging" our kids. it's what we do as mothers.

    sahms damage their kids by keeping them at home in a bubble, away from other kids and socialization. don't forget you're also compromising his immune system by not exposing him to every bug known to the developed world.

    working mums are also guilty of damaging their kids. selfishly dumping their spawn in daycare before rushing back to work and putting financial gain ahead of lovingly rearing their little angels themselves.

    didn't you get the memo?
