First of all I would like to say a big


to those who commented yesterday. I would like to point out that I didnt mean with newborns but with my toddler who is nearly 2 years old. I have lost a cousin to cot death and this can be brought on by many reasons one of which would be rolling over on the baby. So I personally dont think cosleeping with a newborn is a good idea. With Daniel and all my children they slept in my room in their bassinets to start with. You can buy bassinets that attach to the parents bed and I think these are a good option too. Although I would be worried about my pillow that tends to sometimes slip off the bed getting into the bassinet.

I have been cosleeping with Daniel for a week and before that I had been bringing him into my bed in the middle of the night when he cried. I personality dont have a problem with this. I have been thinking we might have to look at a way of making our bed wider though 🙂

Thanks again for telling me what you think and feel. I even meet some new friends. I appreciate your feedback everyone and as a friend said it made for a interesting discussion.


I found this meme last month but too late to do it then

Im going to be doing mine this month

So starting today, I’m going to make a post each day of the month beginning with “A is for…” and on the 26th day, “Z is for…” My posts will be different random topics that somehow relate to my life and at the end I should have something similar to Amy Rosenthal’s Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life.

“Rosenthal has collected a lifetime of thoughts, observations, and decisions, and created an alphabetized personal encyclopedia, complete with cross-referenced entries and illustrations…”
~quote from Daphne Durham a book reviewer for Amazon.

If youd like to do it too let me know so I can read yours too. It will be a great way to know you better. It will also be a nice memoirs for yourself to look back on.

So with out further ado

A is for . . .


This is where I grew up and spent most of the first 33 years of my life. I did go to Christchurch for about 2 years.

of course a lot of other things happened to me in my first 33 years here as well

There was a comment that made me realise something

How often do you NOT leave comments because you wonder how they will come across

now while I have had a few comments that have not been nice and I can reassure you these get deleted ASAP!!!

I LOVE comments and to know how you feel

Dont be scared

I wouldnt post something if I didnt want to hear what you thought and felt about it

Leave me comments



I dont actually have a problem with it.

I tend to agree with Kate “kiddos are born attached to their mommas”
and it seems Daniel is a people person that attaches to his important people deeply – I dont think this can be a bad thing can it???

We however arent all the same. It takes many many different people and their thoughts and feelings to become informed

I wanna know your thoughts and feelings on this matter

  • Have you done this with any of your children?

  • For how long?

  • Did you go to sleep at the same time as them?

  • Do you like it OR Not & why or why not????

Id be really interested in knowiong what you think about CO SLEEPING

This is something I didnt do with my older two but as my wonderful next door tells me things change with your 3rd

However it seems that Daniel prefers it

I dont know why I made a barrier for his room (see previous post) he cried and cried until he was bright red in the face and thirsty as the first night and last night I didnt even make him go to his bed

So we are cosleeping and we even slept in this morning
