How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Ouch, making me wince with all the circumcision talk, hope he is all right TT.
Benedict is trying to ruin me, Vixo very jealous of your sleep. Benedict likes to wake 2 hourly. He's rubbish and I had a slightly better night on Friday as he was coming down with something. No idea what to do with him, his top two teeth are just through and obviously paining him, I even took him to the doc today to check he hasn't got an ear infection. Painkillers make no difference either, still every 2 hours, crying like he's being tortured and the only thing that quiets him is milk. Anyway, had to get that off my chest, don't think there is an answer apart from time and teeth, he's just so much worse that Martha and Aidan were.
I could be doing some running but I'm too bloody knackered most of the time!
TT - well I'm no expert on little winkies (apart from one unfortunate encouter with a partcularly un-endowed guy at Uni), but 2 little boys in Issie's class have had circumcisions in the last year as they were having some problems down there. Didn't like to ask exactly what the issue was but as Vixo says there are some medical reasons to get it done, just maybe get a second (and third) opinion before you let them do it. LOL at the idea of circumcision as a treatment for tonsilitus though!
Kinsey - you have my total sympathy. Lack of sleep is an absolute nightmare. It won't last forever though, even though it might feel like it will right now. Having said I still feel like mine are conspiring against me to make sure I have as little sleep as possible; went to bed late Friday night and of course they were all up by 6.30am jumping on our heads, then this morning when I have to be up and out of the house for work at 7am they're all still in bed when I leave! Gggrr!
RF - watched your programme on the way home, you were fab and after seeing the course and conditions have even more respect for your massive achievement. What a totally mad race! Are you going back to do it again next year?
Right, must go and drink last nights left over wine, wouldn't want it going off now would we !
LOL at the tonsilitis treatment . J was very tight when he was small, the doctor suggested that hubby and I helped loosen it up a bit, but we never felt comfortable with that, anyway he seems to have grown out of it now and I don't think there are any problems ... time will tell I guess!! It never got infected though, but it's certainly not uncommon, one of my friends lad has had a similar issue.
Kinsey - sympathies, Scarlett went from being a joyful sleeper to a nightmare ... I agree with Camlo though I'm afraid, tough love was what cured it in the end and we put up with it for a loooooong time. When we cracked it we kicked ourselves for leaving it so long. It only took a week, with the odd relapse of course. And a few times with the relapses I've been too soft but once tough love kicked in again, job done. Totally miserable with lack of sleep though.
Risotto sounds yum.
Just had a pot luck supper with three friends of mine ... always hosted by the person who is without babysitting, try and do it once a month-ish. So tonights random menu was 'everything soup' from one friend, pancetta, ricotta & fig wrap things + crab cakes another friend, caramelised onion tart and tenderstem brocolli from me, and some super-yummy delia flourless apple pudding from the other friend. All washed down with glasses of water and mugs of builder or herbal tea ... far too early in week to hit wine plus all bar two of us driving.
Inch of snow on the ground outside, morning school run could be interesting. Best be away to bed me thinks!!
Urgh, not something to look forward to, didn't have to do it with Aidan, we just got there in the end and with Martha it wasn't much of a success either however they are both good sleepers now so I live in hope!
