New thread

None of us woke up until 7:10 when dp suddenly started rushing around because he'd overslept. Lovely sleep, grumpy dp.

FoD my thoughts are still with you, it seems you have a great support network and your mum was obviously very loved by everyone who knew her

Hi everyone, sorry I keep disappearing, havent had a minute to myself since the kids went back to school.

Oliver has 2 new teeth grin so he has 8 now altogether. He keeos getting mistaken for an older baby though. DS2s teacher said to me the other day "wow, hes big for 1 isnt he?" hmm Ive had a few people give similar comments. Hes on track weight wise for his birth weight though and the HV is pleased with him so Im not worried, hes just my little big man smile

He'll always know how much she loved him FoD as you'll always make sure he knows xx

So sorry to hear your news FOD x

FriendofDorothy Wed 25-Sep-13 20:28:15

I am a bit of a mess. I just feel terrible that The Little Mister will never remember his wonderful Grandma or know how much she loved him.

I'm so sorry FoD. Love to you and your family.

My mum and are on holiday in Greece and dad phoned this afternoon to say the mum died suddenly.

I feel sick. I am devastated.

halestone Wed 25-Sep-13 13:12:46

Beasty i have my FX that the M42 isn't too bad at rush hour. I hope tonights sleep is better for you.

Spotty we had beef casserole yesterday it was lovely and H loved it.

Willyou, i'm glad you had a lovely holiday. We had a molar pop through as a 3rd tooth and i think we have another one coming through now.

Lazza i hope you get some cake and coffee. And that the early morning stop soon.

lazzaroo Wed 25-Sep-13 12:46:57

Thanks. I feel bit like I'm neglecting the cooking lately! And, like you say, tea time can be hectic! And some times baby lazza is ready for tea before the rest of us so I end up cooking twice. Might investigate......

My mum bought us one a couple of years ago it's breville and really good but it's so massive I can't use it as things just burn! It's good for joints of meat though. So I just bought a tesco £15 one (3l) and it's great. It's got high, low and warm and the lid of the handle is plastic so doesn't get hot. It's great in winter I've read on here of people putting it on overnight and having nice warm breakfast too. I just find from 4pm so stressful as the dc are tired and hungry and it's so much calmer knowing dinner is done. Also if they want it earlier they can and I can just keep it warm for when dp and I eat later

lazzaroo Wed 25-Sep-13 12:28:30

spotty I'm beginning to think I need a slow cooker! Do I?! Any recommendations?

Barbeasty Wed 25-Sep-13 11:29:28

Sounds good.

At least it's quiet here, with both DC at nursery. Just need to time the pumping right before I head off to work this afternoon. And timing travel along the M42 around rush hour.....

Oh no beasty!

I've just put a beef casserole in the slow cooker. Yum. Going to have a lazy day today smile

Barbeasty Wed 25-Sep-13 08:32:27

I can cope with being woken up 4 times a night, you get used to it. But I need to be in bed and pretty much asleep by 10 so that I can face getting up at 5.

What I can't deal with is a wide awake, noisey baby at 11pm. Put him in the cot, he cried. Brought him into bed with me he crawled around, sat up, and tried to bite randon parts of my body (my elbow was a favourite). So, back in the cot...... stand up and cry!

Dosed him with neurofen (what I had in my room) and finally we got to sleep around 11 30.

And at about 00.15 DD woke up screaming and needing a wee. So I had to let her out of her room and deal with that.

After that it was calm, with just the usual 3 or so wake ups.

I had a small lie in (until 5.30!) because I'm heading to our training centre this afternoon/ evening. Then I'll have to drive the nearly 2 hours home after dinner, then leave at 6.30 tomorrow morning to get back in time for a full day there. So I'm not going into the office this morning.

DD was devastated the cheerios had run out. After a bit of a strop she was hugging me, crying and wailing out "but mummy, why did they have to run out". Eventually rice crispies were eaten!
