this is our second, he got his new mac about a year ago,so that's not bad, the cable broke 2 months ago,we replaced it & now it broke again , so that's why we complained, because 2 monthsis just stupid for something that cost £60, but they were very sweet, said they'll send someone round to bring us a new cable & collect the old one.

Good morning BBB!

oh my goodness, that must have been terrible!!
it's actually the reason i am not pregnant yet, i so want another one, but the thought of having to find a new home while 9 months pregnant & then moving, no thank you.
hopefully,in a year, when this contract is up , we will be in a position to buy a little farm, so, then we can focus on family planning.
Me too! I so much want another one! Now is definitely not the time though. I am already thinking about finding a bigger place (but I hate the thought of moving, and my landlady is really nice. I see her once in three months for the rent and she is always gone within 10 seconds, yet if I need something she is always available). Once I get on my feet again financially, I am hoping for one more at some stage though. A little farm sounds wonderful! Do you like England? I took a look at your blog. What is that beach you went to? Brighton?

Hello!

I hear this is the spot to make new friends.

herewearetogether- I read your blog. It's lovely. Your children are beautiful. Are you a Waldorf parent? Based on the fairy hunt and toys, I wondered if you might be. Also, are you German, Austrian, or Swiss? Is your spouse? Just curious...I did my study abroad during college in Salzburg, and lived 2 years in northern Germany after school. I would love to have bilingual children, but that's not likely to happen since we're Americans living in the U.S.

How about other folks in this thread? Where is everyone?

On your macbook? That happened to me last month, fortunately they replace them since they cost like 150 euros to buy new. How long did the cable last you?

i love england, but even if i didn't i'd stay here because of the homeschooling laws
brighton is about 2 hours from here, we go down to our local beach, it's just 5 minutes walk, which is really great for days when the kids are just toooo active

Hi! Welcome! (New blood - great !)

And yes - where is everyone? Maybe we should ask the mods to put a link to the new thread in the old one?

HWAT, you're so visual and artistic I think a mac is a better fit for you

Mine lasted for a year but only because I put duck tape all around the area that is prone to break off

Thank you, that is so very sweet of you!

I'm german, i lived in Nordrhein Westfahlen ( don' take my word for the spelling on this!!) near Bielefeld . (some people know it, that's why i mention it.

dh is very british, i met him when i was 16 & an exchange student , we were sitting next to each other in the cinema & i got scared so i took his hand. ( i know,weird, so not like me!) so, that's that
We decided to move to england because we always wanted to homeschool our little ones, & it is illegal in germany.
Sadly he doesn't speak a lot of german yet.

Waldorf, sort of, we have circle times in the morning & before bed, & no plastic toys, (ok, ONE little people prate ship ) we do a lot of painting, finger knitting,sewing & bees wax modeling, but we also have millions of books, which is not very waldorfy. i went to a waldorf kindergarten, which was very lovely, but then went on to a posh traditional school, so i am not sure how waldorf is going to work for us as my little ones grow, but i definitely want nature / seasons based learning.

Geigerin- My husband is Austrian and we live in Austria (Tirol). I know you weren't asking me but was excited to see someone knew where Austria was (you'd be surprised how often people ask me if I speak "Austrian")

Hiiiiiiiiiiii!

MK: STAAFMIXER. I DON'T believe this, you're Dutch speaking!!?? lol. If you are, for the note: me too.

Ice cream: just made some by hand, overnight. Only I underestimated the time it took for the first freeze so I must admit I spent most of the night asleep instead of stirring on schedule. Anyway, looks like it worked, maybe a little more compact than it should've been, but still soft and creamy enough to scoop out, and no crystals. Recipe with margarine, not cream. Last time I made some fresh strawberry icecream when I had to get rid of over 2kg of strawberries :-), with a cream-based recipe and that one was properly mixed but did crystallise and was so hard that it couldnt be scooped at all! I guess it depends on the recipe then, must stick to the good ones.
Often I just freeze a mixture of milk and fresh fruit, or just freesh fruit or fruit juice and freeze into popsicles. The easy way :-) And then I do not add any sugar.

Feeding the little big ones: ds2 is now a 3y4m o mommymilkfan. I loooooove those cuddly milky mother-son(baby) moments. These are actually the only moments I'm truly able to love/cuddle with my very active, very independent, often 'no touch' sensitive special little son, lol.

As for 'creeps'. I get this creepy/uncomfortable feeling about a neighbour who's always overfriendly with little kids and eager to cover them in kisses, loves to offer snacks and have them come to him. His wife is not so bad, we2Re same-age moderatley social with each other, but him... Adding that his teeth look REALLY bad doesn't make the discomfort any less. Trying hard to teach my LOs to not let this be done to them. But the very lo doesn't GET IT. And he doesn't seem to either. Recently fed my lo from his own plate/spoon on his lap : before I could say 'ba'. Ugh. And I see similar behaviour in his son of about 9 (the kisses). Not normal, is it?
Advice welcome, pls.

Herewerare: ah, TV-free kids in your sig doesn't mean totally screen free, I understand? Like, your lo's can watch a rare video once in a while but you'd like to keep them advertising and cartoon free? Unfortunately I 'failed' on that one after lo 2 was born, and ds1 is really into cartoons, but now I try to let go of it. I just make sure for them to ignore the advertising and to distinguish the 'nice cartoons from the creepy/violent ones, with my help of course. And I honestly do not know what these kids see in spidermen and etc. those give ME the creeps.

Multi-lingual upbringing: doesn't know where it'll bring us with ds2 yet. He doesn't speak that clearly yet at almost 3,5 and it seems like mom and dad are so far the only ones who really do understand him well enough, both cfr. language use and 'mood/character/needs', he also mixes languages a lot and usually DSs speak only the environment language together. Hope it'll turn out as good as with ds 1 who is pretty much 'actively bi-lingual' at this point. He was prett early very well with language, very interested. He also occasionally read words between 2-2,5yo, knew ALL the letters at the time, but it seems that's been a phase here, too, and know he learns all of this and more gradually at 5+. Writes numbers 1-12 but writes most letters he can write (just started) mirror view. Looks very creative :-).

ernalala- the reason why the strawberry ice cream often crystallizes is because the fruit adds additional water so you have to either reduce the water in the recipe somehow or puree the strawberries

eh. it used to mean completely tv free, but when ds was born i used to let emi watch "little bear" episodes on youtube, but they deleted them about 2 weeks ago, so yesterday i got out my mary poppins dvd & let her watch that.
i do feel so guilty, but at least with dvds i can control exactly what my little ones see.
