My mistake

She is three, and yet still doesn’t seem to have any grasp of social etiquette what so ever. Her manners are appalling, her tantrums so extreme that she scares people and to be honest most days I think the family would be much quieter and less stressful without her.Have you met Sadie yet? She can often be found on ebay but no one ever bids for her. To continue reading please go to:…See More

In a moment of nostalgia and following some rare exceptional behaviour I decided to throw a Halloween party for friends from last term. It…See More

hi Jane-

re Breastfeeding and other people ;)

I BF'd my first til he was 2, EBFd my 2nd til she was 18 months, with my 3rd i plan to go as long as we can both stand it. In my mind you are doing what is good for you and your child, and basically, other people can go jump in the lake, LOL.
