Wow. Yes I am just a tiny bit scared! I know its going to be tricky but I really don't think I know just how hard it is going to be in reality! Your partner took 3 months off!! Eeeek!! That would be absolutely necessary by the sounds of it but not possible in this household! I think all my jokes of ...

Very nice to know that there is someone out there who has managed to go a bit easy on the strictness with twins. I understand that routine to a certain degree will be absolutely necessary. Like you guys say, more so I can remember what time it is for what!!!! I do plan to try and get them both fed a...

Even wild carpet pythons generally have a mild nature so unless you really provoke them, stand on them, pick them up, try and kill them, they won't hurt you. They know you are too big to eat so will only bite if they need to protect themselves. Same goes for any snake - but some are more frisky than...

Thanks that is so true - rather than just GIVING people the information and presuming it will go in, encouraging them to take a more active approach and use their minds to think about finding the answers themselves would help that info stick alot more efficiently...

Oh no! I'm sorry I hope that didn't seem like I was having a go at the way you do things!! I just know that when I drop in on mums in their beds they never seem to be listening and are in a coma like state and the more stuff I give them, the more they vague out. Of course, if you are doing an antena...

Ooh I like it! You're a marvel! I was planning on having more scenarios than participants so I could gauge if there were any second time mums and possibly be choosy with which cards get used in the activity. The only reason I wanted to go for the 2nd option was to cover the community and make it a b...
