Re: Studying Mums support and motivation thread.

arrrrrrgh... need hugs. Had a bad day at work ( feeling taken for granted by someone that I've been helping) and then found out that I only just passed my first assignment... and it was due to the formatting. What are you studying that formatting is a huge issue? Any point asking for the grade to b...

Anyone here do big batch cooking?

So following on from my earlier post about eating all the food in the freezer, I'm almost done. There are still a few bits and bobs in there, but I can think about filling it up again. I found some jazzy menu planning software and loaded in a bunch of recipes. The software generated a shopping list ...

I think it was tongue in cheek. They also had ones that said 'Marriage is betting someone half your stuff that you will love them forever' :smt005

I saw a card on the weekend that said 'Childbirth is so painful you can almost understand what it is like to have man flu' :roll:

Re: If money wasn't an issue

Fun question - I'd have a little block of land somewhere quiet with a comfy cosy house (it is cold here tonight so I have an imaginary wood fire to keep me toasty). I'd indulge all my hobbies and not have to go to work. We would probably have a few animals, a garden to potter in, lots of time for cr...

Re: ABA position on oral ties?

Hi Pseudo I think it would be outside our scope to have a position on this - it is a structural issue with the baby's mouth, and a surgical treatment (or not treatment) - that 'feels' to me like it is beyond 'mother to mother' support. As counsellors we wouldn't try to examine a baby's mouth but we ...

Re: Secondary schools

Hotel/apartment might be cheaper than private school fees. We would consider something similar for high school if we had to. One of the private schools here offers weekday only boarding - it is apparently well suited to parents who travel a lot or work shifts (doctors etc). I can't imagine packing m...

Re: Jobs

I was going to suggest transcription. You can do it in your own time, and lots of legal services need it, as well as university researchers. Not sure of the hourly rate. From what my friend was telling me a while ago I think it was around $120 per hour of audio or something like that, and it takes ...

Re: Jobs

We were paying $40 for 2.5 hours. At that rate we still paid the sitter if we cancelled because of sick days, but not in the holidays. And of course no CCB or CCTR. We ended up going with an older lady whose son had had childhood asthma. She was free at the times we needed because she was studying. ...

Re: Jobs

At this stage anything that is casual or part time. Have you tried posting on online classifieds? We picked up our excellent after school carer on Gumtree and there seem to be a lot of babysitting jobs going there. Ours was to pick up Oobiwoo twice a week, walk him home and hang out until one of us...

Re: Jobs

I'm sorry Lu, but I think you have done well in your first interview in ages - that is a good thing! Something will come up for you if you just keep trying. That is helpful feedback and shows you are on the right track. It might be time to start working your network - let everyone you know (school, ...
