Hi 234, parentwellbeing told me they were so overloaded by registrations this week that some didn't make it through. They have now made some fixes so that if you re-register it should be smooth sailing from here.

Hi 234, we had a system crash and a lot of emails were lost. If you sign up now you will receive your first email in the morning!

It sure beats the "Mum you have a very big bottom" I got this evening.... I remember now why I don't bath with my kids anymore :dry:

And yes you most certainly cannot win them all, but I think DS5's words from the heart trumps DS2 tantrum words!Posted Image

Bit of a late response but...when I asked my almost-3 DD, she thought for a few seconds then shouted out "Everybody!!". Everyone in the family is what makes it special and awesome for her, bless xxx
ps: how do u do the love heart symbol ?

have been having a bad run with colds so catching up now and noticed that our days have their own topics so am copying and pasting my posts from the original topic. Here's the one for day one:

I asked my 3 1/2 year old what she thinks is awesome about our family and her first response was 'we eat'! I then explained a bit more about what I was asking and she said "we help each other". This was a lovely thing to hear after a bad hormonal day for me being a big grumpy pants.

I asked DD4.5 this afterrnoon and her answer 'I get to do the dishwasher and stuff.' The cleaning gene completely bypassed DH and I, and somehow DD got it ALL!!
