The six-words piece is a gem, and so is "Are You Available" -- had to take a break after that one.

Beautiful blog -- I've already shared it. Thanks, Konni (thanks to Yasmine, too).

My DD is ever so self conscious and after flipping and spot reading (because really, as moms, when do we have time to read except late at night when nothing but fluff registers) Nurture Shock, I switched from saying "you dance well" or "you are so smart" etc to I love to watch you dance, your dancing is fun. I love to hear you sing, your singing is fun...etc

It's made the world of difference in her confidence.

Thanks for this link.

~~DS was conceived naturally the cycle following a cancelled DE IVF, using my good friend's eggs. She was on the verge of hyperstimming.
~~DD's nat conception I attribute to using OPKs like a crazy nut, eating grapefruit daily and using preseed. also 5 cycles of TCM ending 2 cycles before that lucky cycle.

I know I love to watch my boys play - on the trampoline, in the playpark, with other kids. I can quite happily sit for a couple of hours in the play park watching them play(well not the whole time, I do push swings and chat to others etc).

My two oldest boys do soccor together - the eldest looks like he might be quite good at it (he certainly did not get his sportiness from me) but the youngest looks rubbish (trips over the ball all the time - maybe its his age as he is only 3 or maybe he is taking after me). But I still love to watch him because I can see he is having so much fun and I laugh (inward) when I see him having a hissy fit because another person has kicked the ball away from him (as you do in soccor) and the poor coach having to deal with him (which he does very well)

I truly do get alot of pleasure from just watching my boys.
