This is a continuation of the Parents Club part 14 which can be found here and has been closed due to its length :)

The MSE Parents Club thread is for sharing money-saving tips, and giving and getting mutual support and advice


Suggestions to keep the thread running smoothly
  • Put questions or anything you don't want to be missed in bold and or colour or use a smiley milestone.gif
  • Put an indication of age of child either in signature or in posts where it is relevant for people to understand/reply to a post.
  • If you don't get a response to something, post it again.
  • If you are replying to someone, make sure you either quote them or use their name so that if they don't read through everything they can find your post.

  • Morning all :D

    We had what I thought was a great night here. D slept 11 straight hours but when he got up this morning he had been sick in his cot. I have no idea when as he didn't cry all night *confused* :o

    We are off to his competition photoshoot this morning but he is full of a cold and is a total snot monster :(

    I hope all Mummies and babies had a good night :D

  • Morning everyone. That confused me - I wanted to quote things, but no quote button, and things kept being repeated and I was all confubbled.

    M - we go to the in laws every Sunday, which is fine, except that it stops us doing anything else iyswim. I don't know how you manage a whole weekend. Cutting it down to just one day, or every other weekend is definitely the way forward.

    Dolls - I'm with Susan, dolls are creepy. We do have an action man which she plays with like a doll though. (Which means we also have a gun strategicly hidden at the bottom of the toybox :o), and lots of cuddly toys.

    Morning all xx

    Hi to Michelle and Caz who were asking after me :D I do often lurk on here but don't have much to say so just read and don't post.

    My weekend away with my Mummy was brilliant, was nice to just have mother/daughter time. Plus DH had a fab time on his own with Daniel so I can't wait to get away again.... Hmm where shall I go?

  • Where did you go this time Wizadora? And who do you want to go with? If I thought I could get away with a weekend away I have lots of friends-without-kids I could go visit, and have a night out with, and have a lie in too. Luxury. (I have friends with kids that I go visit with Izzy and leave DH home alone because he always refuses to come too).

    Kian has learnt how to brush his hair. so cute. if you say 'brush your hair kian' he puts his brush to the back of his head and moves his hand. wants to walk everywhere now as well. so we're spending a lot of time holding his hands so he can walk from one side of the room to the other. then he will do about 10 lengths of the room pushing one of his walkers. smiling at us as he goes by.

    tried to video him brushing his hair but he threw the brush when i asked him to brush his hair

    ETA: have no idea why my post has the title 'Mrs' i suspect Kian might have something to do with that.....
