Happy Birthday to
Hope you have both had a lovely day.
Chantelle, hope your littlest man is improving.
Hope everyone (adults and toddlers) who has a lurgy is feeling better soon.
Been a full on day here today, I'm absolutely knackered and have to have a shower then do some more washing Serves me right for taking in the sunshine at Kings Park with Claire. Such a beautiful day for it though.

Happy Birthday Kathy
Happy Birthday Angela
Hope you both had great days and got spoilt rotten
Kellie Hope you and those little ones of yours are doing well. Good luck with all the exams, and try not to get too stressed by everything.
Caz So sorry to hear of your friends passing,17 is just so young that makes me so mad. It just doesn't seem right . Hope that Sophie is not anymore, some days it doesn't just rain it absolutely p*sses down. Thinking of you.
Kylie to your friend. What an ass . All you can do is be there for her to talk, cry vent rage etc. So hard and stressful especially with a small baby. My BF split with her husband when her baby was bout 2 months old (sort of similar circumstances) and she really appreciated having someone to talk to.
Susan Sounds like you need a day of pampering after running around after everyone. Hope Haydn is still on the mend and that you are feeling better soon too.
Jodes Glad Lachie is proud of his stitches and over the trauma of having them done. Poor little fella That must have been heartwrenching to hear him cry and not be able to go to him. You poor thing
Sal Hope you are feeling a bit more relaxed now. Sorry Placenta Praevia is not something I know much about, but the cases I have read of have had C/S due to increased risk of bleeding. That's a bugger that you have to go to the Ob GYN as a high risk.
Annette Hi there, I have been wondering where you were .
OMg I don't know if I am oversensitve or what but everyone is making me bloody cranky today. The Caleb has been a fair little sh*t with his smart mouth and hitting Mia. Today he called me an "a**hole b**ch" which I thought was just charming in the middle of the main street too. Mia is just so clingy and calls Mummaaaaaaa Mummmaaaaa all day long especially if I am not in her line of vision. Then DH comes home and just asks dumb questions or is off in fairy land and can't hear me speak when I am a metre from him.
Hmmmmm maybe it's just me
Caleb has a speech therapy review tomorrow (only taken about 10 months I think). It's hard to know if he is getting better with his sounds as he has lost his two front teeth which makes everthing so hard to understand.
Mia is going back to physio next week and CYH think that she may need to see a paed too look at her right foot when she walks as her kicking her leg out is now even more pronounced than before she was walking properly. Am a bit confused too as the physio encouraged me to put hard soled shoes to help her walk and then CYH said she shouldn't have them on until she has been walking well for 8 weeks. Have any of you girls heard that before. Talk about mixed messages,I thought I was doing the right thing

Had nearly finished a big post and the phone rang. Xavier thought he would help mummy and it all just disappeared.
Thank you to all of you for your birthday wishes yesterday. I had a lovely day and received a big bunch of flowers and a voucher for a hair cut and foils for when we head off on holidays to Palm Cove in 4 weeks and 5 days, but whose counting? Also, DH cooked tea last night which was nice.
Kellie - Good luck with your exams and study.
Sal - Sorry, I'm another who doesn't know too much about placenta praevia. Hope everything goes well for you.
Carolyn - 17 is way too young to die. I hope your day is a little better today and that Sophie has stopped being
Kylie - As the other girls have said, I think the best thing is just to be there for your BF which I'm sure you will be.
Jodes - What a horrible experience for you and Lachie although I'm pleased that he seems very proud of his stitches. Typical boy, I think.
Susan - Hope you have a quieter day today.
Kathy - Isn't it confusing and frustrating when you get differences of opinion from professionals. With Hannah I was told by her Physio not to put shoes on her feet until she was up and walking properly and for the shoes to be tie up and not velcro. I have done this with Xavier.
Chantelle - Hope little Xavier is continuing to improve.
ETA - for spelling mistakes

Happy Belated Birthday to Angela and Kathy. Hope you both got spoilt rotten, and that the kids were good for you.
Kel - Good luck with your assessments. I'm sure you'll do great though. Hey, do you have a birth buddy? If not, I'd be happy to give you my mobile number. Not long to go now.
Jodes - Poor Lachie. I'm glad he's feeling better about it now though. I could just imagine how you would've felt being able to hear him crying from the chemist. It just breaks your heart, doesn't it?
Kathy - I hope Caleb's speech therapy review goes well today.
Sal - from what I've heard (but I really don't know much about it), your placenta could still move out of the way as your uterus expands. Not sure if your level of praevia is the same though.
Caz - so sorry to hear of your friends passing. Big hugs to you and your family.
Us - everything is going along fine here. Lucas is being a handful (but what toddler isn't!?), and Madison is doing really good. I don't think she's latching on properly though, and hence my nipples are torn to shreds (ouch, very painful). Going to see a lactation consultant this arvo about it. I just can't seem to get her to take more into her mouth. She's pretty much sticking to 4 hrly feeds, so I feed her before I go to bed, then up once during the night to her, and then up at 6am with Lucas. Feeling very lucky there. She has one or two spells during the day (thank god!!) where she won't go back to sleep, so is awake for the best part of an hour or two sometimes. But DH has been wonderful - helping out so much around the house, and doing a lot of things he normally wouldn't. And he keeps saying really nice things to me about how I'm such a good mum, especially when I'm feeling down a bit.
Has anyone else's toddler decided to go off their food lately? Just wondering if it is an age thing, or if his 2yr molars are still annoying him (he's still only got the one of them that's popped through). I do think he's a bit unwell with something though, because he didn't really eat a chip I gave him yesterday. Very strange for our son!!
Might try and get a few winks while Lucas is at daycare and Madison's asleep. I havent had one daytime sleep yet since I've had her, and I think it is starting to catch up with me.
Ciao for now,
Posted 01 June 2007 - 09:57 AM
Jodes - poor lachie, hope you don't have too many tears having the stitches taken back out - or are they dissovable? Well done to Emily on her award too.
Kylie - your poor friend. Some men deserve to be castrated I'm sure just being there to listen to her is the best thing you can do for her right now. Can she get a sitter for her bub and you take her out for dinner or something? When my bestie and her dh split, i took her out quite a bit to dinner, movies etc, just so she could talk and laugh a bit.
Donna - yeah on hayden's sleep through. Has it happened again? How's his sore face? Have CC said much about what happened?
Susan, Carol, Kelly - hope you and/or your sick bubs are better soon
Fiona, Sharyn, Cecile - hope you all sort out your feeding issues soon
Chantelle - how's little Xavier going?
Me - well today is a better day. Sophie stopped yesterday, its kinda a weird one as she was only sick 4 times, and 3 of those were within 5 mins of each other, and immediately after she'd eaten lunch. She has had a pretty bad nappy this morning, so not really sure if its gastro or what. She was awake most of the night, thank goodness for foxtel I just hope it hasn't ruined all our work with her sleeping and the cc.
Soph also has come down with a hideous cough overnight, and she's partially lost her voice I hope it doesn't move to her chest.
No news on when the funeral will be, so i guess it won't be till at least tues now.
The little b**ches at rach's school finally look like being reprimanded. There is a meeting with my friend and the teachers this arvo, they have backed off Rach a bit, but are now after my friends dd. They are trying to force the girls to play with them, but they won't. Would you believe that they are now stalking her dd in the playground, if she tries to play with anyone else they are going after the other kids saying, she's really mean, don't play with her etc etc. They are 6 years old. The school look like taking it very seriously now though. Coincidentally a pamphlet came home about bullying in this weeks newsletter, it listed signs of your child being bullied, nearly every one was symptoms rach had the other week.
Man, parenthood is hard work. I better go and do some housework, the place is disgustingly dirty.
Posted 01 June 2007 - 10:01 AM
Good morning ladies,
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAYS TO KATHY AND ANGELA, hope you both had wonderful days
Jodes-so sorry to hear about Lachies accident. How's he doing now, poor litle man?
Let me know how your 1st ride goes-so excited for you, have fun:)
Caz-big hugs to you
Sharyn-love Madisons name, beautiful:) Harrison is also being very picky with his food atm. He's teething, but nothing has come through yet.
We've noticed alot has to do with how much sleep he has(or hasn't had) that day. Like last night, he was exhausted and just didn't want to eat, so he went to bed early, empty stomache, but slept through.
I read yesterday that we shouldn't try offering lots of different foods in one sitting if they're not eating anything. They'll soon learn that they have to eat what we give them in 1 meal. Does that make sense??? I'm waffling.
Sammy and Nikki-are you coming on monday?
Posted 01 June 2007 - 10:31 AM
Caz I am so sorry to hear of your dear friends passing. It is just so not right when parents have to bury one of their children. The funeral is going to be so sad, but I am sure there will be many happy memories too.
OMG, I can't believe those little be-arches. At the age of 6. What are the parents like, as you would think that sort of behaviour has to be learnt somewhere, as it is not an instinctive behaviour, IYKWIM? Sounds like Rach has been coping well though.
Emily's class has just had a few sessions on coping with that sort of bullying, and it is terrifying to think that it happens at this young age. Its just not right. I don't remember that sort of thing going on when I was at school, or perhaps I just had my head buried in the sand.
Megs Pick up bike at 9am tomorrow. So excited. Although, I probably won't get to ride until Sunday arvo as we have a very busy few days. Will get DH to take a piccie
Any offers on that gorgeous house of yours yet?
Sharyn Poo I can't get into the PP to see these pics that everyone is commenting on. I hope you can get things sorted with the lactation consultant. If you don't have any success, I had a thoroughly wonderful lady that came and spent half the day with me when Lachie was a baby. I would thoroughly recommend her.
In regards to Lucas and his appetite. Don't worry. You will find that toddlers go through phases like this all the time. Lachie still has them. Very little appetite for a few days, then back to normal again. I try not to force the issue and have faith in the knowledge that no toddler is ever going to starve themselves. If you are worried about his vitamins etc, try giving him some toddler formula at night before bed rather than the usual milk. HTH
Kathy Even if you are being over-sensitive, I think you have every right to be so. We all go through days when it all gets a bit too much (as in having to put everyone before yourself), so if you want to be cranky, go for it I say
Kirsty That is soooo lovely of your mum. She should be bottled I reakon . How is the weekend panning out, anything exciting planned? You can come here if you want
I can't remember too much from the last thread, so I can't catch up on many more personals.
Thanks for your wishes/thoughts on Lachie. I took the bandage off yesterday and he now loves looking at his "sewing" in the mirror. .
Benji is in total destruction mood at the moment. He has done something with the phones and de-programmed them. So I've got to try and find the old corded phone and plug that in. aaaagggghhh.
My IL's come back on Sunday after galivanting around Europe for the past six weeks, and they are going to be shocked when they see Benji I think. He has turned into such a little parrot lately and is clearly saying heaps of words now. I think he is wanting to keep up with the older two.
I made a train track before of the wooden Thomas stuff and Lachie and Benji have been happily playing for about 20 minutes. Benji is only allowed one train, but he just keeps pushing it around the track saying "toot-toot" Oh, so cute, I could just gobble him up!
Anyway, had best go and pay some attention to them before it goes downhill.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi gorgeous mummies
Just had to drop in to say HI!!!!! to all you beautiful women...
Georgia and I have had this horrible flu thing all week and have been laying low... both sort of getting over it, but I coughed all night last night and so cancelling plans to go out tonight
DH is HOME as in HOME HOME HOME!!!
This could be the beginning of him never going back! We are officially putting in an offer on our shop tomorrow (finally!), so that the finance comes through.
Then DH got a job offer here in Perth... not as much money as FIFO, but still very good and we will have the two incomes and still be better off AND he will be HOME
It means he can be here as we are 'setting up' and 'settling in' to the new business and maybe even leave to join us full time once it is turning over more , it is too perfect... I am an optimist but I keep thinking it's all too good to be true
Chantelle - I hope Xavier is well and truly on the mend
Jodes - Poor Lachie! awwwwww... well at least he is 'proud' of his sewing now...LOL
Caz - Big hugs to you, I am so sorry to hear your sad news (((hugs)))
KATHY & ANGELA - HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAYS!!! Hope you both had beautiful days xoxoxoxoxo
Megs - hmmmmm not sure, I do not want to spread germs..... WDYT?
Kirsty - how is the house hunting and FIFO life?
All Perthettes - Can't wait to catch up with you all soon - looking forward to Megs' party!
Well better be off to put my Little Miss snot monster back to bed for a kip (I hope!) maybe I will even get one myself......
Love youze all
Posted 01 June 2007 - 12:19 PM
Sammy-you are still alive!!;) Great to hear from you, hope you're feeling better. You'll be fine by mon so you have to come. Fingers crossed for you that all the finance etc goes through for you today xoxo
Jodes-funny you ask about the house, we've had soooooooo many people through and huge open homes but no offers. But last night my neighbour popped over and she said when our contract runs out she and her husband might be interested in purchasing it and we do a private sale. So i'll have to look into the legalities of contracts etc
We also have another couple coming back for a second look tomorrow. Fingers crossed:)
Mel and Jodes-i was thinking, when i'm settled into Hobart and back into training, we should all meet up and do a big tri together in QLD-maybe Noosa-WDYT???? I'm thinking in 1-2 years time(i'm serious BTW)
Just had a weird experience with Harrison, he was all happy etc then suddenly burst out crying as if he was in pain, he was trying to do a poo, so i checked his nappy and there was blood around his rabbit pellet poo. I had instant thoughts thinking he might have crohns aswell, so i'm taking him to the dr's this arvo. Hopefully it's just the seeds from bread causing a little grazing and constipation.
Had my pre-conception bloods and crohns check up done yesterday to make sure everything is on track so we can start TTC in the next few months.
Has anyone elses cycles changed heaps after having a baby? Mine used to be text book 28 day cycle, now it's anywhere from 30-35 days-weird!
Ciao for now
Posted 01 June 2007 - 01:00 PM
*trills* Good Morning!
Kids free day here YAY! But as usual have stacks to get done, the kids playroom has become mummy's laundry dumping ground, it's a shocker but DH isn't here to whinge about it and the kids don't care so it is still a mess!
Had an excellent night last night, Charlie slept until 7am, Billy slept all night even with his cold and Eleanor crept in with me at some stage but didn't wake me up so I had a whole night's sleep!! YAY!!
Billy had his first dry night in about 2 weeks as well which I'm sure made him feel a lot better and saved me waking up in the night to change his nappy and bedding. I sent him to bed in a sposie, with a terry nappy over the top (thank goodness I am a hoarder and saved the snappy's) then pilchers, then his jarmies, poor kid could hardly move but he was DRY!!
Eleanor woke with a dry nappy this morning for the first time ever as well, I was staggered as she normally has it down to her knees. Probably a fluke but wow imagine, no nappy at night!
Sorry about all the nappy blah blah I'm just a bit excited about lame things!
Megs: Looking forward to Monday :)Hope you're ready for the onslaught! I only had 4 cycles between Eleanor and Billy but they were longer, 30-33 days whereas before I was a 28 days gal.
Sammy: LOL welcome back, hope to see you on Monday?? It's been ages Loving FIFO Wish he had started 12 months ago! But then I probably wouldn't have the cutest little baby in the world
Jodes: OH NO poor Lachie I bet it was twice as traumatic for you as it was for him Have you recovered yet?? Would love to pop over this weekend *sigh* will be there in spirit!!
How cute of your boys playing so nicely together, I am looking forward to my little guys being the same I am sure Billy would love to be playing with them and LOL at the toot toot, one of Billy's few words is VROOM VROOM little car but already
Caz: Poor Rachel and her friend. Sounds like a nasty little bunch in their school. It only takes one nasty kid and the others follow along like sheep for fear they will get the same treatment if they go against her. Girls can be so bloody b**chy it makes me really angry.
I hope they get in big trouble and really pull their heads in. A week or so of their treatment dished back to them would make a difference I am sure. Have you got that book I mentioned yet?? It sounds exactly like one of the scenarios in the book, and the ringleader can never see what she is doing as nasty which is the biggest problem and the sweet shy types are the first ones to cop it
Sal:Honey I have my fingers crossed that that naughty placenta will get on the move for you, there is still plenty of time and hope that it will move up and out of the way. Take it easy and Auntie K says "NO STRESSING" so there!! Now you have to be a good girl because I said so
Fiona: How is Lily on the Xantac?? Any better??
Ahhh whingy bum baby is grizzling, tried to get the cat to keep him company but no go unfortunatley *sigh* back to the housework and the million other things on my list for today....
ttfn, sorry to those I missed, will bbl
Posted 01 June 2007 - 01:25 PM
Kirsty - love the new sig. I have ordered that book from the library, all copies were already out. Looking forward to the read.
Congrats on the sleep thru too!! Hope Eleanor's nappies stay dry, is she completely tt during the day now, or are you still having accidents?
Sal - don't know much about the placenta thing, but i'll keep everything crossed it moves for you.
Sharyn - forgot to say earlier, Madison is gorgeous
Posted 01 June 2007 - 02:05 PM
Caz: She's getting better, thanks for asking! She hasn't had an accident at home for several weeks now but seems to have them quite often at CC. I think she is too busy playing (with her best fwend Abby) to pay much attention and then when she needs to go, it's too late Ah well, practice makes perfect and at least she's not doing it on my floor! I must say I am still a little scared about taking her out in knickers even though to date nothing has happened....
I think the sig is cute too! She just did Tameika's new one as well
Just got a very late birthday present, it was out of stock at them time my sister odered it and yep, another cross stitch book! I know I'm a sucker but it was so beautiful I wanted it so badly
Must go and be productive while the littlest member of the trilogy sleeps....shep's pie tonight mmmmmmm my favourite, love the comfort foods!
Posted 01 June 2007 - 03:10 PM
Yey long weekend for us Perth girls
Kirsty - Love your new sig, great news that Miss E is going great guns with her TT. Tyson is still hit and miss with his night TT but I am blaming the walmer weather as I think he is sleeping deeper.
Kathy at Caleb, Tyson insults are more tame. He was calling me a "dog" for a while but didn't understand that it was insulting, he has starting call me "a dirt" or a "poo & wee-wee head" but it's all said in jest though and never with intent. LOL at Mia, Angelique was like that last weekend and it was driving me nuts. She know so many words but on that day it was all mummy, mummy, mummy.
Carolyn - OMG at Rachel being bullied, I can't believe that kids as young at 6 are being targeted. I am so scared about sending Tyson to pre primary next year, I just hope he'll be okay.
Sammy - DH has had the flu last week and I didn't catch it, I'm a strong women you know. YOU MUST COME ON MONDAY!!

Just a quick hello to tell you all we're still around. ILs are up and it's DH's b'day so I'm trying to be sociable. I'm also playing with my sewing machine (making some cloth nappies for #3).
We had our 18 wk U/S this morning and we're definitely having a...
ha ha, that was for cheeky Ren who got me with her drinky red herring. Nah, didn't find out, we just love the suprise. Only problem is this bub will have lots of red, green and purple nappies! Perfect in every way though so we're chuffed.
My belly got huge overnight. huge. I'll post a pic one of these days.
sorry for lack of personals. I'll make it up when visitors leave.

Must be the day for new sigs im sporting one myself
Heather - Yep you got me going too. Great news on the healthy bub.
K - Your kids are too cute Was it painstop that the chemist gave you for Billy last week? If so was it a day time one or night time? I only ask cause I think if Lily could have got a good night sleep she would have recovered alot sooner and might get me some for next time
Michelle - Tad excited are we I got a bargin of the centry this moring, I managed to win the tenth circle for $1.81 on ebay, $7 bucks for postage so $8.81 all up Will let you know what its like Enjoy the weekend.
Vent alert - Just spoke with my S.Mum and my 1/2 neice has just had her bub at 32weeks and they dont think it will survive. She had complications with her previous two kids and was told not to have any more. To make matters worse she is living with a Fijian bloke (the father of this baby)and is living in Fiji with him. I can just imagine the conditions that they are being treated in. The Specialist here in Australia told her before she left that she would at least have to have a c/s and she need to have the baby here for the care that it needed. Im so angry at her Why would she do that to the poor unborn child My poor Dad would be at home stressing about her too which makes me even more angry at her
I think Lil is finally starting to show sign of recovery She has been asleep for an hour and I havent heard her cough once It's so cold this arvo in Sydney, I must say though it was an awesome sunny day for the first day of winter. Ok enough ravel from me. MWAH

Another me, me, me post I am afraid but need to get it off my chest...
Took Will to the paed today. Was hoping he'd say - yes the reflux is back and that's what's making Will sleep so badly and then he'd give me the right dosage of Losec for him and we'd have a healthy boy who slept well again. FAT CHANCE!!! Basically the paed seems to think the sleep issue is just one of those things we are going to have to live with...the headbanging and chanting are just Will's way of soothing himself in and out of sleep cycles and it 'might' go away eventually...but there's nothing we can do. As for the reflux he doesn't think it's back at all and that Will just had a very upset belly fr a few weeks after his bout of gastro. The only thing we have left to try is ruling out all dairy completely to see if it makes any difference, but I'm not holding my breath at that altering one damn thing. I just want to at the thought that every night for the forseeable future is going to be horrible...I want Will to be a 'normal' kid who sleeps peacefully and for Zoe not to howl in pain for hours after each feed.
Heather glad everything went well at the scan.
K, Carol and Tam love the new sigs.
BBL when in a better frame of mind.

Heather - glad your scan went well.
Cecile - hugs to you. I don't have any advice i'm sorry, but i'll keep everything crossed that Will starts sleeping for you, and all his problems magically disappear.
Sal - the pamphlet was one actually written by our school (its not really a pamphlet now that i've looked at it, it is 4 a4 pages of info re: what is bullying, the signs, what you should do etc). I'm more than happy to post, email, fax or whatever it to you if you like. Rach's bullies got disciplined today by the two grade one teachers and the principal. Not sure if their parents will be notified, but i'm so glad i spoke up now. The school have certainly taken it seriously.
Carol - i hope the baby survives. That's sad that she was warned about what might happen, but risked the babies life anyway. I don't understand that at all.
Sigs - its great having all these new sigs around.
I'm very excited tonight. One of the main guys i work for has sold the business, it changes hands end of july. The job is frustating cos he's sooo disorganised, but it was paying our mortgage and keeping me sane. I have been quite depressed about losing the job. Well this arvo i had a call from the new owner, not only has he offered me work with him, but he also has another business so it will be more hours. Also i have told him a rate $5 more per hour than the current guy (i wasn't charging him enough). I will be meeting with him next month to work out the details. Only problem i might have is that he is keener for me to work from there rather than at home, but wasn't totally anti the idea. Hopefully we can come to a compromise where i do some from home, then maybe one night or on a sat i do some work from down there. I figure that's a short term problem anyway, i'm hoping sophie will be well enough to do at least 1/2 day at creche after winter.
So as dh has said, one door closes and so often another opens.
This guy seems so much more professional and organised too, so i won't have the stress i am currently having. Only hard part is going to be the overlap where i am working for both, as i'll have things to finish up in aug for the current owner, but will have already started with the new dude. I'll just have to be organised for once (and probably have less time on eb)
have a good night all
