i enjoyed reading your story Kirsty but I don't think I will play this one thanks. I am actually not a baby person. That's why my son is an only child (laugh laugh) going through labour and childbirth once was definately enough for me and the older they get, the more demanding they get. my son is 18 and still demands heaps of my time since he crashed his car and smashed his ankle. one day me and hubby will have some time for us
