    We have slightly olive skin so we don't burn that easily, and when we're at the beach we apply sunscreen every 2 hours due to us being in the water a lot, and we're fine sunburn wise...but it's just not good for your skin to be in the sun in the middle of the day when the temps are nearing or over 40 degrees. I don't want to give my kids skin cancer, so we head home. If it's a day in the 20's or low 30's we stay until around 1pm generally. I have been known to go for an afternoon swim at 4pm, and leave at 9pm, though, and I've also gone for breakfast at 7am and left at 2.30pm....it really is dependent on the temp. If we travel to a beach a bit further away we'll get there around 10am and leave at 5-6pm...but we set up a shade shelter, and don't do it on a day that's forecast to hit the 40's.

    I am in shock. DD walked today. Not to me but to another baby in the shops. And then at home to DH.

    She only just turned 10 months. Eeek!

    Lol fun times. DS1 was an early walker at 9 months 1 week! Teach her the word 'stop' as quick as you can. He used to take off running and slam into things. Poor thing was covered in bruises

    Huge hugs. DS (2 yo) calls me mum - I think it's because that's what DH says. It makes me sad too.

    How old is she? My 7yo DS went through a phase of calling me Mum last year. I asked him why and he said he didn't know. I asked if he would please call me mummy as he was too little for me to be just "Mum" and he said OK

    I'm not sure I would have pushed it if he said he wanted to call me Mum, but at 6 I wasn't ready for it to change.

    She's only 4!!! 😭
    I think it's part laziness lol.

    It used to be every now and again but I noticed since yesterday she's been saying mum consistently. I have corrected her a few times- I'm still her mummy! Always will be!
    I'm not ready to let this go. I feel quite strongly about this as we were never allowed to call our mum "mummy" (wasn't a loving mother) and I remember once when I was 6/7 and I was asking for something and used "mummy" and she slapped me for being a baby 😪

    Even worse is that it sounds like "mom" from all the you tube stuff she watches 😭

    Pretty sure ds (3) calls me Mum mostly. Doesn't bother me too much as dh, Nan and no doubt the carers at childcare say Mum a lot. He does say mummy milk though 😆
