I got a doll when my sister was born. I remember going to the hospital and being given the doll. She was called Jessie, and had red tights and a red stripy jumper. I have no memory of seeing my new baby sister at all. DH was given a combine harvester and has a similar memory. I'm not sure what that tells you! We meant to give the buses something from No3 - probably Lego, but somehow entirely forgot.

Timely spam! I was just going to go look for this thread. Saurus very nicely offered me a simple solution to this the other day when he asked me, "Will the baby have a birthday cake?" I think a nice big chocolate cake hanging around in the fridge, with a slice each day for everybody the first week or so, might be just the thing for us. (I know, I know, I'm not supposed to be encouraging emotional eating / food as rewards or replacement of affection / things like that. But there are times when it's very handy, and new sibling = chocolate cake isn't a bad beginning to a relationship, is it?) Assuming I can refrain from eating it all myself at 3 in the morning to satisfy the insatiable breastfeeding hunger. Maybe we'll need two cakes. Or five.

And Mia and Oreo are my emotional support cats.

Muahaha, it was a sneak announcement. I was MaggieTheClam, and then I disappeared off to America for a month and it took me forever to come clean. Still, how did I miss that you missed it? I could swear I saw something by you . . . . Oh well, it's out now, anyway! :D Like I said, 3 is the new 2. ;)
