Is it normal for a 3 year old to display some OCD Tendencies?

Please do not feel that I am labelling my son in anyway but I'm just wondering if anybody else's 3 year olds have funny little ways or things they have to do. My Seb is 3.4 years and is literally obsessed with Pirates, boats ec etc. He has a pirate play mat on his floor in his room and has 3 pirate ships all lined up facing the same way, any pirate figures have to be standing on the ships and if they fall over he gets really upset and has to stand them up! If god forbid the dog moves anyone of t...

can anyone help???? childcare vouchers and tax credits

Hi you cant claim the childcare element of working tax credits and use childcare vouchers, but you can get Tax credits and the vouchers, For example me and dh do £243 and £240 straight out of our wages, we then get £80 a month tax credits, as a couple we earn too much between us to get the childcare element of tax credits and are better off doing the vouchers!! My friend for example is a single mum and works over 16 hours a week can claim child tax credits and working tax credits as she is a sin...

Birthday cakes

Aw bless ya Indie, the hard part was baking the cake as I have a rubbish oven that likes to burn things on the outside and not cook it in the middle!!! Decorating it wasn't that hard but as you can see i'm not artistic but if you were then it would be much better, to decorate it I just covered the sponge with an apricot glaze and then used ready rolled icing to cover it with and then cut out shapes for the face. I didn't know how to make the icing a peach colour so I just told the twins he was a...

Hospital Bag for Twins...

Hi, I would take more pads as my hospital didn't give them out. I had a c section and went through so many!, the thicker the better, I also took some cartons of juice and some snacks for hubby whilst I was being induced etc as that took a long time and the hospital shops are so expensive. Also take some biscuits etc for yourself as I always found I was hungry in the middle of the night and it's nice to have something with a little cup of tea. Good luck twins are fab!!! Mine are 3 soon!!! It goes...

Bit of advice about the size of our baby

Hi Addy My Sebastian was always measured as behind Ruby, and when they were born she was 6 pounds 12 and he was 5 pounds 7, also it's really difficult to scan two wriggly babies in a tummy especially when you think how big they are at the moment. Did the sonographer say you should be worried??? I think if they were concerned they would have got the consultant in to chat with you anyway, I would try not to worry at the moment (hard I know) and I bet at the next scan things will have changed, good...
