This is a question Common

Freddy Woo writes, "My wife thinks calling the front room a lounge is common. Worse, a friend of hers recently admonished her daughter for calling a toilet, a toilet. Lavatory darling. It's lavatory."

My own mother refused to let me use the word 'oblong' instead of 'rectangle'. Which is just odd, to be honest.

What stuff do you think is common?

You *must* go to baby swimming lessons!
My little girl is 5 months old and has just finished her first term of baby swimming classes. It is the most amazing thing to see your baby swim underwater. All babies have a natural reflex which up to about 7 months lets them swim and hold their breath underwater - it is simply astonishing to watch. It's a bit worrying at first to dunk them under the water but all the kids in the class just loved it. The most incredible part was when the instructor made Mrs D and I stand a couple of meters apart and our daughter swam between us underwater. She was only in free flight for a second or two but that's more than enough.

Forget the breast feeding Nazis, they're really not worth worrying about. The pressure some women are put under is just wrong. You're doing the best for your little 'un so forget everyone else and enjoy the swimming!
