Hello all December 08 mums!
My little girl, Heather, was born on the 6th. Just wanted to say HI!
welcome to mfms!
Im laura mum to jack 26mnths and lola 10mnths, shes a bum shuffler, wont crawl but she sure can move fast, i was desperate for her to get crawling, the reality isnt so fun lol!
Hope your well, theres often a few of us in the chat section if you want to come and join in, x x x
I'n Jo.I've 7 kids.
We want them to crawl,but as soon as they're off you need gates and locks.I'm considering getting my youngest used to the playpen before he learns what freedom to roam is.My children are all very "free range"
Lmao,Erin used to do that.Iactually caught her with her foot out the window once.I was down at the car,she was upstairs in the flat.Never ran so fast.Don't know how strong window catchesare,just didn't want to take any chances.
Oh almost forgot.Couple of weeks ago,Arthur was supposed to be getting dressed after his bath.I was bringing in the washing.I looked up at his room,he's standing on the windowsill(his window opens at the top,competely starkers,shouting "where's my pyjamas?"Wouldn't matter but there's a hall that does weddings and function and parties and there were people in the sort of garden at the hall.
LOL! arthur again, he needs his own comedy show! You know when theyre humiliating us there has to be an audience!
we had to fit our own extra catches, just incase, the windows are usually locked but all it takes is one of us forgetting, as jack is soo skinny he could have slipped down the small gap, scary! Hes had a foot balanced once, No idea how he didnt fall, back into his room not out, his windowsill is above my waist height and the window we left open before this is his height from windowsill iyswim? he had his foot above his head, i thought he was a good child, Christ have i been wearing the old rose tinted specs!
im quite worried what tomorow may bring, jack hasnt been told no, or done one thing wrong, he went for a nap at the right time, bed on time all without a fuss, im scared!!!
Also first trip with him 'free' just a walk over the field to the shop and a wander in the works and he was an angel,
hes lulling me into a false sense of security
what is he plotting?
Hiya all. Our kids keep us busy and on our toes. My little boys was 9 months old on Tuesday, 29/09/09. I can't believe the time has gone by so quickly. He is an absolute pleasure to have. 3 weeks ago he started standing on his own withouthout holding onto someething. He is such a show off as he has also started clapping his little hands drawing attention to himself. His sister 3yrs 9 months gets so excited when he does it as she cannot believe stands on his own as " he's only a baby2 she says. He is so busy, crawls into any little space he can find and now also climbing over things.
After watching the 10pm ITV news tonight I feel deeply saddened by what happened at little ted's nursery. I felt quite emotional knowing my little girl attends nursery all day 4 times per week. I can't even fall asleep. We entrust our children with the nursery staff... and what do some of them do abuse our trust by sexually abusing the children in their care. I feel I want to send an email to my daughter's nursery requesting what they could do reassuring me that my girl is safe in their care. My daughter is so happy at nursery and I don't want to over react but it made me worried tonight watching the news. Did anyone watch it and what is ur views. I'm a social worker I am actually thinking of starting to do sessions with my daughter about keeping her body safe, just to teach her the basics.....Let me know what u ladies think....Thanx in advance
im growing increasingly worried about all the shocking things we are seeing in the news at the moment, alot of children are being subjected to some really nasty people and it is upseting and i can imagine its far worse for parents who use nurserys,
personally i think its a good idea teaching her certain things my sister is 4 and weve taught her about not showing off her knickers etc (disney princess knickers are the coolest thing according to her and she was telling everyone about them shes not shy) The niavety and general open sharing personality alot of toddlers/young children have is a lovely thing but its becoming more and more often that its taken advantage of, I cant imagine how id handle it but im sure the basics, like were trying to teach our two yr old not to poke his sisters 'mary' its curiosity isnt it? telling him its private, for want of a better word, would do no harm and hopefully if godforbid something happened shed know it wasnt right and tell you, or so id hope. As long as it doesnt cause your daughter issues with nursery i can imagine it would help!
Sorry if none of that made sense im terrible for rambling on!
Your littlest ones clever, my dd lola is 10mnths, very lazy, shes only just i mean today, managing to go from crawling to back to sitting and shes trying really hard to pull herself up, but having realised she can balance well on her knees and reach jacks table shes given up!
Thats so sweet saying hes only baby, my sisters 4 and she gets soo excited more excited than us, if possible when jack learnt to walk and when he sayes new words, its so sweet!
Hope your reasured by the nursery soon, take care, and hope to chat again soon x
I can't belive how quickly this year is going just realised its only 8 weeks until hattie is 1.This week she has learnt lots of new things she is getting very good at crawling , she can now wave when someone says bye to her and is also starting to clap her hands, she's also holding onto things and sitting on her knees to reach things she shouldn't be like roberts homework or hannahs hair bobbles.Hope you are all keeping well x
there first year goes so so quick, lolas one in 6weeks, still not crawling but shes climbing and got a nice large handfull of jacks muesli today and decorated the carpet!!!
Hope hattie has a lovely birthday! x x x
