Let's try this again. 

Life is made up of differences. Let's explore these differences, learn from them and accept them.

Congratuations Susie!!!!

Re: that other thread - I wasn't offended for myself but for the many women who are regular posters on that forum --and I felt angry thinking about the many, many inompetent mental health workers out there who voice opinions with no scientific basis. Armchair diagnoses of any kind will make me crabby - as will medical advice delivered over the internet. I'm an egghead. It offends my sense of intellectual honesty.  

Lionesses do not get easily offended because of our own persons - when we do, we simply rub heads with pridemates and cubs.  

The conversation luckily proceeded well. The OPer graciously edited her OP.

I have an axis I disorder anyway....we people are supposed to be too crazy to carry on any conversation...Tongue out.it's the Axis II people who I think were more at issue.

Bartender and Pastor, how about some buskers outside our door to attract more people on this Friday night- maybe a jazz band?

Anyone diagnosed with cancer should learn to have a healthy disrespect for statistics. Statistics are maths. It's the science which still eludes us.

No news on the size of the baby yet, no pics or anything - grandma getting p'd off. The SIL is quite hopeless, but you think he could at least send a photo by now. She has her phone off - I tried to call.

Thanks for the congrats girls - I'm getting used to idea now there's 2.

Momine - 20 is too young - hope she has a career first.

Nicholas Stephen - 6.99lbs and only about 20 inches long - he is definitely a bit premmie (36 weeks). The paediatrician says he's healthy which is the main thing.

Just got off the phone with her - I resorted to calling the hospital.

It's nice - she's totally in awe of him and can't believe she made him :)

That reminds me of when my sister had a baby and she called me and all she kept saying was "I am a mom!  Me!  Can you believe it?"  It was so cute.

I rushed out bought boy baby clothes - will have to post them on Monday. She has stuff friends have given her but I wanted her to have some new things. We did pay for the modern cloth nappies to the tune of $475 for 24!!! Can't figure out what's wrong with the old fashioned towelling ones.

Just asked SIL for a photo and he's going 'we'll have to post one' and I'm going 'EMAIL!!!' (idiot)

Will post the photo if and when it arrives :)

Thanks Judith and the other girls

No photo yet - cranky grannie here :)

BTW - he was 7lbs - my bad just used the old 2.2lbs = 1kg. Used an internet calculator and it's 7.01lbs.

Hey girls - wish me luck - going to see the great granny tomorrow - something I avoid mostly, but it's Mother's Day here next weekend and seeing we have a 3 day weekend here and Steve is golfing tomorrow - might as well go and see my mother - long long overdue. It's only a 50 minute drive but I dread it - not so much the road but her negativity.

Markets tomorrow am - seeing Steve is leaving at 5am, I can do my market thing and then drive to the Gold Coast.

Thank you mods. I will miss her but she will live on in all her friends.

My kids use those fancy new diaoers(nappies) and I can't figure out why they are sooo expensive. They even hand them down to other moms. We just used our old ones for rags but then they did not cost so much or come in different sizes.Edited because they come in different sizes not sixes and yes I know there are more typos but a gal can only do so much.
