"in the UK where people stand about a mile apart when expressing gladness to see each other"

Grin! Beatifully put.D

I had to smile at that too! (hi Khadijah, btw, it's been a while).

We're certainly into the 'toddler boundaries' again now Ted is 2. He very recently bit his sister so hard he near drew blood! He had previously hit her hard with a wooden spoon. After giving my daughter a big cuddle and putting some arnica on the very purple bruise, I whisked him upstairs and sat with him for some 'quiet time' (one of my older boys kindly sat and played with dd so she wasn't alone).

I'd agree on the crying front - we co-sleep, both dd and Ted were carried everywhere (I still carry Ted on my back sometimes, he's not a very big fan of the pushchair), but sometimes everyone, young or old, needs a good cry in frustration and even more so for small children who don't have the vocabulary to express their feelings.

Hello to both of you - it's nice to encounter old friends here! Thanks for adding to my post, "dottyspots" - this always helps make ones blog a richer place!

What a stereotype - not all UK residents are like that.

So sick of the us and them divides and don't see how that comment was beautifully put?
