JFB thinking of you & your family
Moong I have started reading 123 & yesterday I watched a bit of the DVD....... Very interesting so far, he really makes a lot of sense.

I thought it was really logical too Nessie.
Kismet - 123 magic is a discipline method using counting as a stop method. Mainly he says keep emotion out if it. Use counting for stopping things only, not to use counting to get something done. After a time out there is no speaking about it afterwards. Clean slate.
I'm going to see if the DVD is at our library.
Jfb sounds like you are just doing what you can to get by ATM. Who cares about bottle feeding to sleep? While going through this, you need to do what is easiest for you.
I hope your dad is being kept comfortable. I've been thinking of you. X
Sonja - how's the bump?

Hi Girls, it is getting so busy for everyone here:
JFB - I'm so so sorry to read about your father's declining health. Cancer is incredibly evil and I'll never forget it taking my uncle who was in his 60's and died within 3 weeks of being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer We still shake our heads over the sudden loss, and I can't imagine how hard it is to watch your father go through his illness.
Nessie - Isn't it amazing how much children notice about their parents? I'm a solo parent household and so it makes one side of things a little simpler. I think its really cute that your bub is so in love with dad and it's just so hard for them to understand why he suddenly disappears for days. Let's hope the overseas job sorts itself out quickly. It will be quite a family adventure Yes, I want another child ASAP if possible. Stella is in a brace, so I will wait until January before trying again. I wish I could try earlier but Stella's health comes first. I'd have 5 children if I was younger There's a real worry already that my chances of having more than one are so uncertain (I have 2 frozen embies left). I want a sibling for Stella badly as she doesn't have any cousins.
Kismet - I can't wait to hear about the results of your interview. We all think we did badly after an interview, but I'm sure you were better than you thought. for an offer soon.
Amum - That's the downside to being interstate. All those fulltime family visitors. I have a friend who is in the same position as you, and she gets so stressed with her partners family. With good reason, I might add. You just don't get a break when they invade your personal space

JFB - do what you need to, too much to deal with at the moment.
Moon - omg I think I need to get that book! Evie has driven me up the wall lately with her antics and to top it off I don't know why but she has been hard to get to sleep lately. We were out for dinner on Sat night and she had a nap in the afternoon beforehand, unusual these days but she fell asleep in the car, but didn't get to bed until 10pm that night, then Sunday I thought for sure she would want to have a nap in the afternoon after a late night bcs she woke normal time but she refused so I put her to bed a little earlier last night as she was super tired, she was quiet after awhile and I thought she was asleep but when I checked on her last night before I went to bed at 10.30 she was just lying there wide awake, I was furious but just ignored her and walked out the room, had to stay up a bit longer then and checked 20 mins later and she was fast asleep. She has done the same thing tonight! put her to bed at 7.30 she was super tired but just checked on her now and she's still wide awake at 9pm......never struck this before, at least she's not screaming the house down but I don't know why she's not going to sleep, she should be really tired...I can cope with that but I'm thinking this is why she is so dramatic through the day now which is driving me mental.

Hello to everyone. Just a quick one tonight, hope you are all well xxx

Sorry I've been MIA for a while - have been enjoying a little break from all things baby and just been very busy. Life is one big chaotic time at the moment - DH has been away ALOT lately and s about to go for about 2 weeks which I'm feeling really blech about. I have to say he's away so much these days the kids barely even notice his coming and going - I guess they have so much noise and chaos in the house with or without him. I just feel soooo tired from solo parenting plus battling many colds I'm exhausted. We're heading away for a week early July to have our last little break as a family of 5 (and taking the 2 dogs) so am really looking forward to that. Marc has hit terrible 2s with full throttle and bosses his sisters around something shocking. I really feel for Scarlett - she cops it from her older sister and her baby brother so much - middle child syndrome well and truly alive in our house. One thing I'm grateful for about having a 4th is no one will be the middle child.
JFB I'm so sorry about your dad. Don't stress about the bottles - we did no bottles with Lucy (but she still had a dummy), no bottles or dummy with Scarlett, and bottles and dummies with Marc - and they were all atrocious sleepers. Go with whatever gets you through. Now is not the time of your life to be worrying about it.
I hope everyone has a great day and is managing their tyrant children. I am well and truly outnumbered these days and can't help but worry a bit about what it will be like when I'm stuck on the couch breastfeeding while the 3 kids run amock, but not much I can do about it.
8 weeks to go.....

just a quickie.....my dad passed away early tuesday morning. Thanks for thinking about me, i am ok. His funeral will be huge, we expect 200 maybe more to turn up....he was popular . We are all sad but as many know cancer is not a nice way to die and im glad that he is no longer in pain....i just wish the grandkids got more time with him....before he got sick they were talking about having the kids for weekends etc....we are all still a little shocked that the cancer took him so quickly ...im so glad we spent last xmas with him, i have a great shot of him smiling watching the kids open thier presents.

JFB I'm so, so sorry. Losing a parent at any stage in life is awful but when you've got a young family it is just so hard. Take care of yourself xx
