Thanks guys :-) It means a lot to have someone to share it with :) I'm still shocked to have DD2 okay with just cuddles, so nice, but wow is she getting lots of cuddles, I guess she is just dealing with the combo of weaning and my working full time at the moment but there is a lot of "now I want Mum...

We're Done - Happy Sad

DD2 turns 3 at the end of July and we had hoped to wean soon so I shouldn't really be sad that she's finished. I LOVE that she's finally happy just having a cuddle, especially in the middle of the night! But I'm not sure if we're ever going to have another baby so it's also sort of shocking and sad ...

Thanks Erin, do you remember at all how long it took to heal? This seems to be a bacterial infection and while its been draining and I think the puss is gone (I know ick sorry sorry!) it's still basically an open wound. Saw the Dr last Tuesday guess if it's still going on next Tuesday I'll go back t...

Infected Montgomery Glands (sorry a bit icky)

Hi I've got two infected montgomery gland on one areola, I've seen a dr about this and I'm on antibiotics but just wondering if anyone else has had experience with something like this, did you use paw paw cream or lanolin or just keep it clean and dry, how long did it take to get better etc? The Dr ...

FB is a place to vent for a lot of Mums - esp when they are dealing with kids alone (i.e. hubby is at work or asleep) so I always try to read whats written in the best light.

It won't work - the kids that are impulsive and immature aren't going to stop because they know it could affect their job prosepects. Many "bullying" behaviours are crimes and 16+ year olds know they are crimes and do them anyway. Your brain isn't fully mature until 21 so it makes sense that some ki...

I know a Mum who has time to (1) get drunk (2) smoke (3) wash and polish her floors weekly (because according to her you're white trash if you don't clean but (1) and (2) are fine) but "doesn't have time to help her kids with homework" (or basically anything else to do with parenting). She will walk...

Speaking of public liability cross country is being run on ovals and golf courses this year, I didn't mind it was a nice day out all the same, but it must have been a bit less exciting for the kids than the track we used to do (which went up and down hills, through forest, across gullys etc.) It's a...

Jen is it a large school? Our's is a small school (220 students) and they did mention when we were looking that sometimes being a smaller school isn't great as they don't get the funding that the bigger schools get. Like we don't have music classes :( as there is just no funding for it. Sorry Happy...

Did a search for "left-handed" because yep I was right DD1 is a leftie! I think we can say it's pretty well confirmed now. In a way I'm glad a dominant hand has emerged - it was more awkward when she was swaping back and forth and people wouldn't be sure if they should comment or correct her. Looks ...
