LBP - hope your H is better and good luck for induction xx
We're up early in the Wren household as Daddy has to go to Manchester for work - poor Jack was none to happy to have missed out on his usual snuggles with Daddy in bed before venturing forth for the day and didn't want Daddy to leave this morning! Thankfully, Peppa Pig (I love sky+!) is bringing him round! MIL is comign over at 9am and because H prbably won't be back until about 7pm is stopping until about then to help me out with bathtime and bedtime if need be. Nipping to the shops this morning and to drop off a little hat for my friends little boy, then it's nap and relaxation central for me. Still, got a cold and full of snot - nice! It's better than it was, but really hope it goes soon.
We've decided that Jack is going to leave nursery and not go back after the Christmas break - he doesn't enjoy it enough, even after 6 months, and it's £130 per month we'd struggle to find. We'd have done it if he liked nursery - he's not miserable all the time, but he's not enjoying it and more often than not when we pick him up he is subdued, white faced and just not himself. It'd be easier for me to have him in nursery for the 2 mornings a week, but if we weren't paying for nursery we'd have a bit of spare money to pay for extra trips out, so am thinking that we could restart doing softplay once a week/fortnight. It's a shame as I really do believe that nursery does have benefits, but just doesn't seem right for my little boy at the moment - he's confident with mummy/dady/family and is fine once he's got used to new situations in his own time, but I don't think at nursery he's settled. He cries when staff leave the room and I'm getting the feeling that he is needing virtually one-to-one attention or he gets upset. So, from New Year onwards I'll have 2 under 2 at home all the time! However, my mum has said she'll help when she can, H is home every lunchtime from work and we can keep on using Jack's keyworking from nursery for babysitting - H has said we can see if she can do Saturdays on a reasonably regular basis if need be so we have a chance to keep on top of housework etc.
Sorry for ramble about Jack! Babywise - all fine. BHs are pretty strong - not painful, but getting stronger 'balling up/tightening' sensations. I can now eat bananas again having gone off them a few months ago - my food habits changed in the week running up to Jack's birth, so I definately think I'm getting ready. Eeeek!
Take care everyone,
