Hi Maccamum. I am in Hamilton. I have 3 kids too- aged 4, 3 and 10 mths, so understand the permanently tired thing!

Hi joolyjoolyjoo,
thanks for replying to me. Has your 4 year old started school. My 5 year old is now in P2- can't beleive it. So 3-5pm is crazy in my house and evenings busy taking her to clubs etc- still would't change it for the world

Yup- my dd (4) started school this year. I was a bit teary at first, but am now understanding the benefits of having time with them all separately, even if it is a bit whirl-windish! dd2 (3) has started nursery, but only goes 2.5 days a week, as I work 1.5 days, and she has her sessions while I am in work. Does your 3 yo go to nursery yet?

Hi joolyjoolyjoo,
Had to go to my bed last night as was dropping off- so sorry for taking so long to reply.
yes d3 goes to nursery absolutely loves it and is now learning french one morning per week. S1 goes to toddlers which is great as I can have a chat and spend time with him. Both little ones sleeping so im having a quick coffee break

Sounds like you have a similar lot to me- I have 2 girls and then a boy too! Lucky you that your 3 yo still sleeps- my 10 mth old is sleeping just now, but dd2 is around festooning me with lego, and demanding I read Owl Babies again! I'm trying to enjoy half an hour of relative calm before going to get dd1 off the school bus- that's when the squabbling starts!

Hey ladies - I'm in Uddingston - have a ds who is 16 months. SAHM at the moment so constantly trying to find things to keep him out of mischief.

maccamum Tue 23-Sep-08 15:06:30

Hi to both of you,
my little ones still sleeping so im having a skive- have to wake them up soon and do the school run and then chaos all over so enjoying the quiet whilst i can.
Joolyjoolyjoo, have you now got an influx of blue clothes in your house after having two girls.

My ds doesnt sleep in the afternoon - ever!!

He wakes at 6, goes back at 9 for an hour then thats him.

We've been over to East Kilbride this morning so just having an hours chill out before tea and tidying up!

Maccamum - are you in Uddingston too?

Hi georgieminx,
Yes I am in uddingston. I have just done the dinner chaos worst time of the day and am going to get D5 ready for one of her many clubs.

Hi again, ladies! hallelujah, they are all in bed. I usually go to the gym on a tuesday, but I'm skiving on account of my rotten cold, so had a nice bath and I'm on here till its time for "Prison Break". Just found out today about the council strike tomorrow, so that's dd off school and my spin class cancelled tomorrow night- pah!

Joolyjoolyjoo Tue 23-Sep-08 21:31:26

And yes, maccamum- I am really enjoying dressing a wee boy for a change. At least I don't have to do his hair in the morning- bonus!

Hi,
