Ah yes, Juice, I was just about to suggest that we make it weekly. That's my vote!
Thanks Tanya for the thoughts - I just phoned my mother all on tenterhooks and it turns out the exam is on Monday!!
I went to the dr myself with both dds and it seems that dd2 has fallen below the 'normal' curve on the chart - I said that it was a chart made for formula fed babies and I was expecting a dip, but she said below this curve was not really Ok and it was time for dd to be eating. Well since throwing herself on dh's meat stew the other night (after which she had a rash on her face
) she has had measly amounts of potato, apple and banana - but she isn't too interested. We also all had our blood tested as she thought we might all be a bit anemic. I'm wondering whether to have the last precious bit of dried ground placenta and give some to dd2...
she gave me some anthroposophic(????sp?) medicene for the inflamed nerves in my back and funnily enough since taking the first dose I feel better. She is a bit of an intuitive genius, my dr. Not sure about the weight/solids, though, dd looks fine to me.
Hope you're all celebrating in fine style, claire!

oh, and a joke. True story. Man goes to clean some old family graves.

You're imagining it, he thinks. Leans over the grave again, reaches forward...'Who's there?' By now he's
!! He's about to run then he takes himself in hand and leans forward determinedly once more...'who's there?'
then he realises he's left his mobile phone switched on in his pocket and when he leans forward it automatically dials someone
