Everyone's mileage varies on this issue, I suspect. Glad it's working out for you three, and that you're enjoying your time together.

Oh, I'm sure that some people do find it impossible. But, it's interesting that practically everyone on hearing that someone's having a baby automatically respond "well, that's your social life ruined for the next 15 years" or "better get out and visit those museums and have meals out, because you're not going to have a chance for the next few years". I seem to recall several such doomsayers on this very thread (and previous incarnations).

Well, it ain't necessarily so.

I wonder how many people listen to the doomsayers, and sit at home all day because they actually believe that it's impossible to go out for a meal with friends, or go for a drive and walk in the countryside? When, with a bit of planning and organisation, they could actually enjoy a decent social life with their child. It's very sad if people do find themselves in that situation because of what others have stated as being a fact.

Actually, I think most people are remembering the toddler phase rather than the new baby phase. Unless you get a screamer like SC, new babies are highly portable. A few months down the line when wee David is crawling or toddling, and asserting his right not to like what you like, things may get trickier. Then again, they may not. I'm sure he's an angel, and you'll be fine! After all, it doesn't sound like you want to take him clubbing, or anything!

I think if you have two sensible parents who share the load and have reasonable expectations, then you can still have a great time. It's often less spontaneous than when you are a couple, as you have to be organised, but you can have so much more fun as a family. I loved the years when mine were about 6 and 9, as children that age are old enough to be civilised and enjoy museums and walking and the beach etc. etc.

Now they're 16 and 13, and I enjoy their company still. We can go off as a couple, because they're old enough to stay at home without us, or we can all go out together and have a great time. I'm going to specially treasure our holiday this year, as clearly BC won't be coming with us much longer. I shall miss him when he goes his own way, but I'm glad he's independent and adventurous. After all, what are we bringing them up for, if not to launch them into the world?

I'm always glad to hear of happy parents who enjoy their children. It's so exactly what I would wish for every child.

OOps,

right coffee for Viki. Is that a Latte, capucchino, flat white.....

And speaking of babies ruining your social life it sounds like bollox to me. Mum always said if the eat and sleep well they are pretty portable. Esp if you are breast feeding. Then you just need nappies blankets and something to sleep them in! And she should know...she raised 5 kids from scratch and 32 foster children.

Sorry about the delay guys. Computer problems at home, rushed off my feet when at school, and spending as little time at either as possible while Bronwyn & Miriam are still in the hospital.

Anyway, Miriam Helen Kelleher was born at 11.33am Australian Eastern Standard Time Tue 4th July. 3.045kg (6lbl 11). No problems or complications. They have had a few hassles establishing feeding but that's getting much better now, otherwise going swimmingly. She's the most beautiful little baby but photos will have to wait until I can figure out how to get them onto the web from my school computer.

Oooh, I have to go out and train people in restraining pupils now, and all I want to do is sit and look at that pic and go out to buy something...

Miriam is one of my favourite names and goes beautifully with the surname too - she will be musical with a lovely rhythm like that to introduce herself with! [Yipee] [Tear] [Axe murder] [Votive]

Hurrah! Wonderful news. May you have many happy years together, Bronwyn, Sean and Miriam.

Just a quick update on life with Bubble, in case anyone's interested. She's now 6 months old, has two teeth, and is just starting solids. Not quite all her clothes are orange yet, but almost! She's very smiley and chatty, and generally gorgeous. Arcturus and I are smitten! Like wee David, Bubble is a very sociable baby who likes being involved in things, so taking her with us is no problem. We know how lucky we are!
