How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Oh no to the CP Brookie... can you keep him as covered as possible? Surely if the doc says he can fly!?
JT.. look after yourself and get as much help with things as you can. Hope the next set of antib's help.
Good to hear from you Vixo, how much longer do you have left?
Eek to the fireworks...although I clearly remember going over to the park with my Nan when I was little collecting old fireworks in a bag and taking them home
Hope you get Aus news soon MM. Cant be much fun not knowing whats happening.
JT - sending you get well soon vibes and to little E too Brookie!
Vixo - I know what you mean, on round 3 I definitely didn't feel I should moan too much! Hope everyone in your house starts sleeping better!!
Hmm, not loving phonics here, M has a sense of letter sounds but cant glue it all together, feel like they are pushing it a bit hard considering its all so new to them!
Fell in with two other mums today and (if we don't move) I will be seeing them at school for the rest of forever as we all have 3 kids who are each going to be in the same school years - hadn't realised what a long haul schooling is going to be, I'm having to do flipping homework every night and I'm not sure how you juggle multiples of that MM and Lotte!
Being in limbo is horrible, I'll definitely agree with that.
Can't imagine what twin sibling rivalry is like, but I guess it all varies from family to family anyway. My two get on fabulously in general, but S winds J up an absolute treat (she's a natural and he bites). So we rollercoaster along. They are so different at school with S finding it very easy to make friends whereas J has had something of a struggle but fingers crossed at the mo seems to be on the up, in fact today he told me this school is so so so much nicer and better than his old one ...
Parents evening and all seems to be OK, bullying thing looks like it's currently under control and he's doing well in class, despite being 'something of a dreamer' which we know anyway. Usual stuff - needs to improve handwriting, but believe me it has improved!! Great reading, good maths so pretty OK really. S doing well too, listens well etc etc and apparently doing well with all her phonics and sounds (despite what she doesn't seem to understand at home!!?). Very independant and a bit quirky was the observation and I'll agree with all that!!
Bog hugs - yes we like those Boo to chicken pox. Hope you can fly though and good to get that one over with.
Vixo - I don't think it matters how many you have really ... ALL entitled to feel tired and frazzled whatever, and the multiples and singulars all come with their own different challenges. LOL at the wedding anniversary, some of ours have been a lot like that ... am sure hubby relations will pick up, being shattered, working, arrival of an extra are all things to add into the joyous melting-pot of marriage.
No running for me today - felt shattered this morning ... but 1 hour pilates class that I go to plus 30 mins on the turbo and a load of lunges and squats - thanks MM. Just off to do more homework now having finally got kids to bed. This Monday eve Cubs is a killer with an 8.15 finish, madam will be HORRIBLE tomorrow
"Vixo - it is not luxurious to have 3 kids..... In fact I find it torture and think I deserve a medal...." Love it Camlo
Oh god Sophie winds up J too. So I have the twins shouting death threats at each other and Sophie joining in. Her speech is rather too good for a 2 year old!!
Tonight they were all little angels actually, but yesterday was horrific at times.
At least its a different school after a few years Camlo...
Good training there CC. I intend on getting out in the garden with my medicine ball that I stll have from Bedford days. Its only 3kg but thats enough when you do squats, sit ups, lunges and throw it. Nothing this week though except pilates. Taper time ...
Long and protracted running club comm meeting, too tired to write up minutes as secretary not there tonight so I offered (why??), bed for me ...
I totally agree on the torture too. Sometimes it is enjoyable, and can make me feel very happy but mostly its hell on earth and never ever luxurious. But I can see that actually the process of being able to have 3 children is a luxury. Although I would say to anyone thinking of it, think very carefully!!!
ha ha to the teeth sinking Camlo - sometimes I think he'd like too!!!
JT - sorry, missed you earlier!!! So sorry you are still so ill, really really hope the meds kick in soon - you deserve some relief for sure! I wish you were teaching S her phonics etc. I feel a bad mum in a way as I haven't focussed on it much, whereas, of course my friend who has three girls has got her 4.5-year-old reading stuff and I am still struggling to get my 5.5-year-old to get it together!!! I think S is actually finding the jolly phonics really confusing - the whole making a sound and then giving them a list of words beginning with the sound - so when she sees the letter she shouts out one of the words relating to the sound! I find it really hard to know what is 'normal' cos J was so NOT normal, I think he was born reading with no effort from me!!! Sigh, sorry, waffle, but I worry about S in this respect more than I ever did with J.
Kinsey - it does kind of get better, well it changes too but the older ones do more for themselves eventually.
Camlo - love it!!! We are all gold medallists in my book
