Im showing my age here but i first got a crush on him in neverending story then excited to see him in seaquest. I had 4 crushes back then and only one is still alive....... Jonathan, river phoenix, corey haim and stephen dorff. It was so sad to hear about brandis.

@mamamia-user-482898552 well that is quite close minded of you. I have many friends but they all over, nz, sydney, blue mountains, regional nsw. Where i currently live. Mostly older than me some are now grandparents some have older kids and some have none  I only wish i could find someone in a similar circumstance where we could have play dates with our kids or go for coffee and just chat without feeling judged by what we say.

Ive had many dr appointments like this with no resolution only tears. The best ive had was my gyno who was helping me fall pregnant and he said i want you to start keto which i did and a few months later i had lost weight and was pregnant. Weight has gone back on and my kid is nearly 3. My gp gave me a plan for a dietitian but it was so severe i actually felt quite sick from it. It was one shake breakfast and lunch. Half a protein bar morning and afternoon tea then 1 cup of cooked vegetables with some oil. I just felt so nauseous after a few days of this and couldn't sustain it.

I feel like i wrote this except im 43 with a soon to be 3yr old and find it hard to find a friend with a child similar age as they are usually younger and have trouble connecting with them.

I remember the movie, i think stephen dorff was in it but what a tragic ending to all of it and how horrific that the perpetrators weren't sufficiently imprisoned after what they did.

I struggled with infertility issues due to pcos and finally at age 40 i was blessed with my beautiful boy. I am also married to a much younger man. I do worry that when he is 20 i will be 60 but im hoping he will keep me young and i just won't look like im 60.

I struggled for many years to have a baby to finally fall pregnant a few months before i turned 40. Had bub nov 2019 and the world changed march 2020 so my first year as a mum was nothing like i expected so yes things can change so suddenly i do wish i could've had him earlier but then id be suffering with homeschooling

In saying that though there is an episode where mum needs 20mins to herself and dad tries to entertain the kids so she gets her peace, he is also sporting a mullet in this episode (so hilarious) so while it may not have that message in this episode they do actually do an episode with that message an explaining to bluey why mum needs some time to herself sometimes.

I just watched clickbait, another great 8 part show that has twists and turns and take you on a ride. I wish ted lasso was on something other than apple tv i would like to watch it but i don't want apple tv.

I love watching the paralympics and already have shed a tear hearing their stories. I am so glad its more accessible now to watch and gets more coverage now than it ever used to.

After 17yrs of trying i finally had my son at age 40. I was hoping to have more than 1 but he's been the perfect baby. Sleeps well, drank well. We are nlw at toddler stage and he's more of a handful now but  we have decided to stay as a trio. I sometimes dream of another child but in reality. Im 42 and already tired with juggling work and an active child and plus the factor of finances and what if the next child is a monster with  sleeping.  I never thought id have a child after yrs of trying so im blessed to even have my son.

My parents live 5hrs away and my nearest family is 2hrs away. When my sister had her children my mum stayed with her for 2 weeks to help her settle into her new role. By the time i had my boy it was too difficult for my mum to offer the same help. I did feel very lonely those  first couple of weeks and help would've been great as i had an emergency c-section and at one point was juggling a machine attached to my healing scar and a new born while i went to the toilet. I was also home alone at night with bub when i had to call the ambulance due to an infection. To have someone nearby i could rely on especially those first 6 weeks after birth would've been helpful.

Its a vicious  cycle. They go into care so parents can work and earn  money, a parent can't work because child has to stay home sick, parent still pays child care fees even though no income might be coming in as they have no leave. Last year was particularly annoying as i was getting calls to come get him as he was emotional. He wasn't even 1, like what the hell is that.

My ex husband took my engagement ring back. He was the one that broke the promise though and i think he wanted it back to pawn. I only gave it back cos i thought i had to, i also wasnt too fond of it and i just didn't want it around.

I like the boyfriend jeans but wehether they'll look good on me is a different story. I love the style of flares that arent tight on the legs and dont cut you in half cos its tight on the stomach. I miss the jeans i had when i was 16.

I finally had a child at the age of 40 after struggling to have a child. I found out i was pregnant march 2019 and had an appointment  booked in april 2019 to see my dr and had decided i was going to say lets do ivf as the fertility drugs weren't working  So i was lucky there. My pregnancy was wonderful but in the moment i was stressing about it as i was worried of losing him and i did wonder if id ever be a mum. But because i had him at such a late stage i hope he doesnt feel he missed out on having siblings

Its horrible to hear that this is still happening  in 2021. I have a client who was in an abusive marriage back in the 70's/80's and one day she rocked up to a police station bruised and bleeding from a horrible beating and the police officer told her he couldnt see anything wrong with her and to go home and cook her husband dinner. It just makes me so angry and breaks my heart at the same time.
