Apparently I've been "bailing" out on doing the Little Star of the Month updates and I apologise for anyone who has been upset with how slow I've been in keeping up with these on a monthly basis. I am currently in the process of moving country and things have been insane for me since February when my husband returned to the US leaving me with a young baby to handle alone along with everything else that is involved with moving to another part of the world. As you're all parents of children the same age as mine I'm sure you can understand how stressful that actually is!

So I apologise to anyone who has felt like I've purposefully overlooked your turn with LSOTM or felt like I was being unfair in any shape or form. It has not been intentional. I never planned for LSOTM to be something that was stuck to religiously, but more of a light-hearted, fun aspect to the community that was changed/updated whenever I had a free moment from sticky baby paws!

Speaking of which, does anyone else have a kid who loves trying to shove their hands in all the wrong places when you're changing a poo-filled diaper? I think I use more baby wipes on his hands than on his bum during those times! ARGH!

Agh! The hands in the poo drive me crazy! Because then, of course, it goes EVERYWHERE.

I'm sorry you're feeling so stressed! I can definitely relate, and I hope things settle down for you soon.

I think the worst part is if you have a blow out at the same time so you're trying to remove clothing while desperately trying to avoid getting baby poo in their hair!

FWIW, I didn't even notice the absence of LSOTM. I wouldn't be offended if you stopped doing it. Or maybe we could change the way it's done, and have the LS's mommy post the updates? It seems like few enough of us are really active now, though, that just the regular monthly updates are enough to keep us in the loop, without the added bonus of the LSOTM.

I agree with juleakab.
Sorry that you feel so stressed about it! :(

What I was going to suggest was, since I am the crazy-organized one, is why don't I do the admin for it, post it every month, and then if you want to do the graphics for fun, that would be a nice bonus cause they do look nicer than plain text.

It was stressful to receive your email saying you couldn't do it this month as I was about to lose my Internet access (am typing this on a phone) and am moving to a new city tomorrow morning- bad timing for both of us. But I do generallyenjoy doing things like this and it's a pleasure to help out and be part of this community.

And yes, Oliver gets his hands covers in poo all the time!
