Would you take a 1 year old out at 7.30pm to collect another child from a club?
I think its ok so long as they are wrapped up properly, hat, gloves, coat etc.

My friend thinks it will make her dc sick.

And if this was her opinion then she shouldnt have enrolled her older child in the club.

Yes she's being ridiculous!

DuchessFanny Tue 29-Jan-13 20:38:16

er yeah ! precious !!

LadyWidmerpool Tue 29-Jan-13 20:39:03

It would be a pain because it would presumably disrupt bedtime but I can't see how it could make a baby ill!

Of course it won't make her child sick. I bet she wouldn't think twice about it on a nice summer day. Being dark doesn't make the weather worse than being daylight.

I think that she is being precious yes. My dd (18mo) is usually in bed by 7pm so personally I try not to disrupt her routine on a regular basis. I would keep her up for a special occasion but not to pop to the supermarket.

How can taking a 1yo outside at night make her sick? hmm

And this is her second?

7.30 pm? really? and it's not as if it's a case of pfb- that's a bit...odd.

how will it make her sick? A cold is a virus, not caught by being out at night. Its not ideal, just because 7.30 should be about the right bedtime for a 1 year old but not the end of the world

Yfronts Tue 29-Jan-13 20:40:41

I wouldn't just because mine are asleep in bed at 7. Wouldn't worry about catching something though. Just need to wrap up.

She is being PSB! grin

I had to take almost 2 year old DD2 out last night to collect DD1 from her school disco. She was out at 7pm and she had her pyjamas on. Please don't call SS on me! She's not sick today though, unless the fact that it was 7pm and not 7.30pm makes all the difference? hmm

It would be a complete pain in the arse, but it won't make anyone sick.

I'm guessing that her next words were "so will you pick my child up from the club for me?"

It's not an ideal time, but needs must. It won't make the baby sick.

If she signed her older child up for a club assuming someone else would collect for her without asking then she's BU.

RobinSparkles Tue 29-Jan-13 20:46:21

In fact, I feel sorry for her older child if they have to keep missing out on clubs and things because she won't take the younger one out to collect them!

SirBoobAlot Tue 29-Jan-13 20:50:33

Surely she knew what time the club was ending when she signed up for it?

Could understand if she was slightly concerned about disrupting bedtime, but the suggestion it will make him ill is ridiculous.

MrsMelons Tue 29-Jan-13 20:53:21

I wouldn't want to take a 1 year old out at 730 if it disrupted their bedtime but it won't make them ill.

Does she want you to pick her child up? Me and my friend help each other out like this so we didn't have to take the little ones out (we had 2nd babies at different times). We would rather than do this so the babies/toddlers could go to bed at a normal time but to suggest it would make them sick is daft!

apostropheuse Tue 29-Jan-13 21:06:16

I personally wouldn't have taken mine out in the evening like that as they were in their bed sleeping at that time, but of course it wouldn't have actually made them ill.

LittleMissFantabulous Tue 29-Jan-13 21:11:34

I pick up the nine year old from club at 7:30 every Tuesday with the five and one year olds in tow. No other options so we middle through. Your friend is being a wallysmile

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Tue 29-Jan-13 21:13:46

So who exactly is picking the older child up?

spideyman Tue 29-Jan-13 21:14:17

yes she did ask me to collect her dd. smile

The parking outside her house is horrendous so I know this is probably a contributing factor to her not wanting to go out but there is more parking at the bottom of her street and it doesnt take long to walk up.

the club isnt very far so she could have the little one home and in bed by 7 which imo isnt a massive change to a routine if it was the same every week.

She tried to reserve her space in the street with her bin when she went out and someone had taken it when she returned. I just got a ranting phone call about that and how selfish/inconsiderate the person was who took her space....

blackeyedsusan Tue 29-Jan-13 21:27:35

<dials> oi robin where did you say you lived?

psb yes... though I suspect it is the parking that makes life seem difficult.

Karoleann Tue 29-Jan-13 21:32:57

I wouldn't dream of taking a 1 year old out at that time of night. I'd either make sure dh was home, get a babysitter or not enrol him in the club.
It don't make them I'll, but it's far too late.

I'll = ill
