shimmygirl replied to topic Bad behaviour & VERY different parenting styles...

I agree with the others - my DH & I back each other up (mostly because I'm always telling him we need to have a united front) even though we don't always agree. He's fallen into the role of the 't...

shimmygirl replied to topic Bed time

Hi Ando As the others here have said, it's very handy to get into the routine of preparing your son for bedtime. We tell our DS 'it's time to go to sleep' and talk him thru each step (bath, getti...

shimmygirl replied to topic MY 18MTH OLD LOVES DAD AND HATES ME

Hey Nonnuls You poor thing! Sounds like you have a lot going on there. From my experience toddlers are very changeable as to who their fave person is. Usually with my DS it's me & at those time...

I used to work at a Centrelink call centre and I can assure you that any staff member telling a customer to commit fraud (& is overheard saying so), will be seriously dealt with. In answer to your...

Hi Jess As the others said, Kmart, etc can be good depending on your area & the time of year with sales. Big W recently had shorts & t-shirts for $4 each so that's pretty cheap. I also have a lo...

shimmygirl replied to topic Sookie la la

Yep, I'm with you there Kazi...Nate is the same (usually when he's tired). My approach is to try and laugh off the small stuff, do 'magic Mummy kisses' or a cuddle if he really makes a big fuss. S...

No, boys can be bossy too! LOL. Actually, my DS is more singleminded than bossy - today my hubby was watching football and DS kept picking up his 'Boohbah' dvd case and taking it over to the tv an...

Congrats, Kim - you should be very proud indeed! I'll have to have a look next time I'm at the shops to see how cute he is. My bub's wears 'walker' size nappies so I tend not to notice the other ...
