Evening all !!
Hope you all had a marvellous christmas. We did. My parents in law had been staying with us since last Thursday and went home today. I can't help feeling a little of the Christmas Blues !
My problem is that I have 'only child syndrome'. I want people around me all of the time because when I was growing up, this was never the case.
I am happiest when we have a house full and its chaos. Now everyone has gone (my parents were at ours on Christmas Day too) I really have noticed that its all over.
We still have plenty to look forward to and will be out most of the day for the next few days so at least we still have bits going on.
Today, we went to a friends daughters birthday party with our too. It was really great and there was a bouncy castle and disco. It was our first birthday party with our too and OMG how exhausting are they ! We watched one of the children each and it just felt like we ran around all day after them. They had great fun though, that it without the child you was intent on biting our son. He seemed to take a fancy to biting him from the moment we got there. The first time, our daughter (3yo) stepped in. She is such a great big sister. She came and told us what had happened and ran off shouting 'I will watch him'. Just then, what happened? she stepped in again to stick up for her brother only to be bitten on her arm. Screaming baby girl comes running over to us and we are fuming. After this, we were adamant we wouldnt take our eyes of them and all was fine. They played pass the parcel etc and then the girl co-ordinating the party calls out that we can go back to the bouncy castle.
Yep you guessed it, within no time, the little boy is on top of our baby boy pulling his top up ready for the bite on his tummy! Mr MLYTM moved like a flash and flew onto the bouncy castle (with his shoes on I might add tut tut!) and dragged the little boy off our baby.
It's really hard for the parents, I appreciate that. Our son (2yo) went through a stage of biting his sister when he was little. I think it was more frustration than anything as he couldnt talk back and shout at her if they were arguing. How do you deal with a biter? The mother of the little boy asked the same today and it made me think. Other than telling them off, which if they are biting due to frustration will just frustrate them more, what can you do?
Luckily our son soon got the message and it never really turned into a big problem.
Have any of you had any problems with biting? I would love to hear your experiences and any tips you may have.
Lots of Love, Your (missing all the hustle and bustle) Blogger xx

Since my recent post regarding all of the changes at our end with me deciding to become a teacher, even more changes have happened. I have now been asked to do a full time teaching assistant job which I am over the moon with.
I am starting in January and can't wait. I love nothing more than being at the school on a Thursday and Friday at the moment and know that will be the same when I do a full week too, with the added bonus of being paid for it.
We are all sorted for Christmas here. We even made some name places for everyone at the table on Christmas day today which look great.
Hope you all have a super christmas.
Lots of Love, Your (not sure who's more excited) Blogger xx

It's official, i'm in love !!
I am a bit of a watch girl (blame Mr MLYTM who is obsessed with them) and have fallen in love.
This watch is gorgeous and definately on my wish list.
What's on your wish lists for Christmas? I would love to hear about them?
