Well, I am lucky that my parents help out with childcare 2 days a week. My dad is now fully retired but mum still works some days. My dad says he'd find it hard to cope with the two of them together, so he has one of them at a time. It's lovely that they have a special relationship - my grandparents lived overseas so I missed out. BUT - why can't they stick to the way we're trying to bring up the kids?!!! I understand that they want to give them the odd treat - fine - but not constantly!!! And they refuse to say 'no' - ever. (don't know why - they said no to me enough times!) Honestly, I'm not being ungrateful but filling dd up with sweets and chocolate and letting her watch as much TV as she wants is really not the way forward. But also childcare is so expensive in the UK, I don't feel like we have a choice. I sound like a cow don't I!!!!!!
Also the nursery phoned about ds saying that I needed to collect him as he had chickenpox. A visit to the doctors later, and it's just an eczema flare-up. Probably due to the random weather we've been having this week. I feel bad about leaving my colleagues in the lurch but I really didn't have a choice.
Lots more interest in my website www.babyclothesandmore.co.uk so keep clicking on, you mums out there!!! Will need to stock up myself on more lovely organic baby clothes for ds, they seem to really help with his eczema.
