You saw Mitchell, he only wants to sit on my lap. He goes through stages (and can have 6 stages in a day I might add) where only I can feed him breakfast (or DH and DS) but only ever one of us is acceptable, At the moment only I am allowed to get him out the bath and I must use a particular towel or he has a meltdown. No one is allowed to help him eat dinner, only DSS can get him out the car etc etc.
I guess it is the one thing they can control and have a 'say' in so it's their way of excercising some independance. they grow out of it, and really there is no magic cure... Soon enough you'll be clinging to her asking where she's going on a saturday night

Kel I went through exactly the same with Scarlett, which was magnified because of the move to Perth and generally stuffing her routine completely up. Tbh I don't know of any thing that works. After I had Marc it became unbearable but nothing I did worked. Is she ok once you've left the house? I found I only got a break from Scarlett if i completely left the house, which was incredibly annoying. Or maybe your DH could take her out a bit more often without you. It might become very challenging after the baby arrives (it did with Scarlett - she would stand beside me crying whenever I breastfed for t he first few months) so the more you can Get breaks now the better.
Kismet g,ad your mum is home.
Hi to everyone. Shoveling in some dinner before the girls go to bed so can't post too much.

Sonja yes she is better when I leave the house. She can be totally fine then I walk in the house and it's whingy whiney clingy baby. Youre right with DH. He does need to take her out more on his own. I think it's easy for them to sit back and let us do the work if we don't say anything

Maybe there's something he can do with ruby at weekends which are "special daddy ruby" things. When Scarlett was born DH was the one who always took Lucy to swimming lessons and then for a hot chocolate afterwards. Or he took her across the road to watch the footy and have a sausage at the sausage sizzle These were special things that they joked that mummy wasn't included. Instead of making Ruby feel sidelined it might make her feel special. It worked with Lucy.

hope everyone had a nice dads day yesterday
nessie: when are u starting next cycle?
kismet: is Evie out of daycare now?
sorry cant help much with clingy bubs...H hasnt been too bad, he does occasionally cry when i drop him off at daycare and when he gets home i have to pick him up for about 5 minutes b4 im allowed to do anything else...
mum4nay: how is your wait going? not long til u get results, cant beleive they take so long
afm: another week til scan , few moments of mild anxiety but been feeling a bit nauseous in the arvo's past few days helps if i eat something (of course but did find that a cup of tea helped me to get over it too so dont HAVE to eat hence calories etc). tired, peeing, skin looks a bit dodgy so hoping this is all good.

Amum - weather is perfect atm, loving it.
JFB - daycare, yes well, torn again . I know I've whinged about it all year and was certain about pulling Evie out last week. Discussed it with mum and she doesn't want me to pull her out for her sake blaah blaah and I got the guilts again bcs it's practically the only interaction Evie gets really except for the occasional visit with friend's kids. It does make life difficult when she is sick as far as not being able to be around other people & having her minded if I need to spend time with mum. I think it's been a particularly bad flu season for lots of people regardless of their social contact etc, it was just the continuousness of it that was driving me bonkers, I'm not sure if she got sick the last time from daycare to be honest. Evie is all well atm, I'm putting her in tomorrow and if she gets sick again straight away then that will be it for the rest of the year and will see how she, well both of us go. I need more dental work, looks like a crown this time another tooth broke! Can't believe it, have never had this much trouble before and now is not the time for it to happen, will cost $1500 to get it done feck! So need to off load E for that to be done, then probably have to cut down spending so daycare might go anyway.
How is H since he got the grommets?
E has woken, must go, hello to everyone.

kismet: i agree, i do think it was one of those bad winters for colds / flu. it does give u a chance to get things done when she is at daycare ( i know it does for me, the odd few hours i get, which never seems to happen now cos something always comes up ) but yes the constant sickness is just so draining on all, i know with H's ears he was sick for 2.5 months.....he is better BUT for stupid lazy a$$ DH gave him a bottle saturday night to settle him he haddnt had a bottle for over a month!!! so since then H has woken for 2-3 hrs each night, last night i was at my dads..im totally shagged now he was awake from 1am til 3.40am and i couldnt abck to sleep properly....seriously my dh is getting it, that was just utter laziness on his behalf, if h was still waking we could get him back to sleep with a drink of water and at worst he would be wake for 45 minutes ,..im soooooo angry.
amum: how did kade sleep last night?
kel: what brand of new pram did u buy? im probably jumping the gun a bit ..but hey.
alittle: how is A ezcema?
well bit boring at work, might do a Roll call if no one objects.
