Quoting Tasha & Nika:" Oh man, I feel for you. I used to be a single mum, so I completely understand what it's like to get ... [snip!] ... meh. I always used to think that just 5 more minutes, and I'd wake up and feel totally rested.. I just never got that 5 minutes"

i usually think, "i'm just gonna lay here and chill watching tv with her" and then suddenly i'm waking up?



btw, i like the name Nika!

Husband promises that when we have another one, he'll get up 50% of the time and do diaper duty in the mornings, too.. I'm like :lol: yeah okay, I won't be taking bets..



Wouldn't that be a perfect world? Lol I'd marry him all over again if he did that.

I don't hear my DD when she wakes up either and it has been like that since she was small. :(

Thank you :)



It's short for Dominika - looks a bit odd with that spelling, but we're actually Russian, with Asian and Eastern European roots, so I wanted to incorporate that into her name.. albeit I must admit, I wasn't particularly expecting to move to the US in a couple of years lol life is odd that way

The English equivalent is actually Dominique, but over the years, I've sort of got used to her being 'Dominika' and so has she, so we just let her be when we moved, if she wants to change it to Dominique when she's a reasonably responsible age, we'll see what we can do



I'm thinking of sleeping in her bed tonight while she is hogging mine :lol:

Ya know, with Gaga .. it's kind of volatile that way, but like I said, it'd be so hypocritical, because we're all parents here, and we all get tired.



Heck, I'm tired now.

so it's not actually pronounced with the "uh" on the end? i think it's prettier.

I've been in a bunch of those. Heck, I've been the one bashed before and it's like .. chill out, dude.. I didn't know this website was your life.



How old is your little one? Sorry if I missed it somewhere



And we pronounce it as 'Do-mee-nee-kuh' instead of the French form of 'Do-mee-neek'

i hear it Dom-e-neek. i like the other more!



i made some mistakes that i didn't realize were bad, and got jumped on. i'm like "if you would have just worded it nicely, that would have been great." oh well, life goes on.



She is 10 months 1 wk.

Ya know, everyone says that - but it does get easier. Soon she'll start wetting herself less and less at night, and it won't be quite as tragic in the mornings, or maybe you guys get try night time diapers? We didn't have those in Russia, so I never tried them, but people speak highly of them



People are overly sensitive when they choose to be, but at the same time, total bitches when they see fit. I feel bad for Barbie and her thread, although I've never had beef with Jamie, I think Barbie cannot help getting as upset as she does, and clearly.. she cannot just log off and 'go do something else', Gaga is probably the only place where she feels she has friends.



Having said that, I don't believe that I can be not critical of how easily she starts insulting people, even when they are not being mean to her, so I just exited the thread because if I tried to explain that to her, she'd not understand and it'd just turn into drama and get her all the more upset
