Helllooooo - all my long lost buddies! I finally got around to tracking down this website again! I moved house, bought a new computer and this site wasn't bookmarked anymore, and got way too caught up in day to day living to get back to my chillout space. But here I am!
I have been reading a few of the preceding pages, and I really need a response strategy. Do you guys take notes as you're reading, or type it into MSWord and then cpy&pst into the response? I have all these comments I want to make when I read about someone, and then go blank when I start typing!
Anyway - Cla & Saraid...umm, your houses are older than European settlement in my country! Wow!
Saraid - how is your cycle going?
Such great progress with all the 2 year olds. Here is a little update on me/Lucy:
Lucy is sleeping in a big girl bed. She started just before Christmas as we were house-sitting and I couldn't bear to put her in the port-a-cot. She is still very tall, and about as long as the p-a-c, so it would be like a coffin for her. We thought we would try her in our nephew's single bed and see how she went. She was fine! No issues at all (they are surprising huh?). So we rushed out a bought a single bed before we went back home to stick with the move, and it's been great.
No development on the toilet training, although I haven't really tried! She finds it interesting to sit on the potty and pretend to go, but doesn't actually do anything. She did manage a number 2 in it on the weekend, and that surprised us all (especially her!).
She is OBSESSED with TV, and it's doing my head in! Every day - "can I watch Dora/Diego/Roary now?" over and over again. Is anyone else's child that obsessed with TV?
Lucy has been in day care 3 days a week for a year now, and she loves it. She struts around there like she is the boss, and waves goodbye to everyone when she leaves and thanks them. It's so cute! I did a post grad degree in teaching last year, so I'm now a qualified teacher, although I'm still at my old job in HR.
I also had a FET last week - from the same cycle as Lucy. I test next week. I'm trying not to obsess over it, but it's amazing how all the old fears creep back.
Cla...I checked out your Blog...I'm so impressed!! Well done
Kristi - I couldn't find the link to yours....could you post it again?
Mel - I hope you get on and check-in every so often. It would be good to keep up with you and Maia and how your cycle is going.
Now i have this bookmarked again, I promise not to fall off the planet again! It's so good to catch up with all of you, but I'll stopping dribbling on now and go for a swim at the beach (it's been 40+ degrees c here!!).
