I'm so glad that they changed it, well done you!

We don't have money to go out buying all new things so she simply...
My ex-husband's new wife is due with their daughter in mid-August and she has just been diagnosed with having a blood clot in her lung. SHe has been hospitalised since Thursday but other than that they haven't said anything to her (the specialist isn't due back of holiday till Tuesday). She, and quite frankly all of us, are beside ourselves with worry and I was wondering if any of you mamas out there had any similar experiences. Does it mean she won't be able to have a...
The bouncy chairs are great. I don't know how I lived without mine. I also use it during bathtime. I lay a thick towel over it and lay Sera (or did when she was smaller) on top whilst I'm getting in and out of the bath because I was petrified of slipping whilst holding her. One tip for babywearing whilst pottying. If LO has fallen asleep on your back make sure that you remember she is there so that you don't sit back too far and bang her against the loo. I'm not saying...
I agree with the previous posters. It really sounds like the child's parents (or other significant adults in her life) are really the ones with the problem. Most kids would give anything to NOT go to school! I wouldn't worry too much about what this child is saying to her parents or what her parents are saying about your daughter being home educated. It's none of their business how you raise your child.
What a fabulous thread... I'd wake up at about 9am snuggled up to my DH or DP (as opposed to at 6am with DS's knee in my back and DD pulling on my hair) I'd look in the mirror to find that the pert bouncy figure I had at 17 had miraculously returned (why is it bouncy turns so rapidly to wobbly after kids?) I'd lounge about having a breakfast that someone else made for me of black coffee, croissants and cigarettes (I gave up smoking when I was pregnant with my...
My DH does it all the time and it drives me barmy. Before he leaves for work in the morning he says things like "can you put the laundry on" just after he has dressed in a CLEAN IRONED shirt or "could you do the washing up" when he comes home from work just before he sits down to a hot meal on CLEAN plates. He doesn't mean to make me feel like I'm lazy or useless. It's just his way of feeling like he's participating in the day to day running of the house. I've just...

Wow. You obviously visited a very nice part of England. Most of us in the England I know look like we've been...

My DH is an aerospace engineering manager which brings home just enough that we can live in a very small two-bed house and pay the bills if we live frugally. We live in an area with a very high cost of living. We decided straight away that I would not return to work after my maternity leave - I was in the military -so that I could stay at home with our children even though this meant going on to a lower wage - he earned marginally less than I did - and losing a married...

And, if you don't mind me asking' what is your husband's ethnic heritage? I only ask because many Celtic/Gaelic languages have 'Ie' name-starters that sound like...
