To not be able to stop my dc from jumping on the bed?

One just fell off and bumped his head. I just phoned my GP and he said to stop them jumping on the bed but they won't stop!

We seem to have lost the following in our house:

Toby Thumb
Peter Pointer
Tommy Tall
Ruby Ring
Baby Small

they finally turn up when they are called but it's such a faff calling them everytime they are needed - and you have to call them by name twice! They are most polite when they come back mind.

Oh, I'm so glad I found this thread -- there's a scarecrow dancing around in my garden shaking his limbs & hat about. SIGH -- He does this every night as soon as the hens roost up and the moon goes behind a cloud. Do you reckon I should ring the Council to sort him out?

While we have some like-minded mums here I was wondering if you could help me ...

I'm making a cake for me and my baby but I'm not sure how to decorate it ... any clues? I asked my friend Simon but he was only interested if there were pies involved.

I just read this on the round up and have to say that MrsDucky made me proper LMAO.
Brilliant. Bravo!

you lot are lucky. My DS keeps running up to rabbits having a bit of rest and singing at them until they start hopping about.

What am I going to do about it? It gets us all sorts of funny looks.

OP I do feel for you my two don't seem to have any sense of risk at all either.

Only last week they climbed a small mountain, carrying a bucket, ostensibly to buy Evian, and only went and fell all the way down.

DS had to have several stitches in his head (but the doctor didn't have any so just stuck some paper from some chips on his head, it reeked of vinegar) and DD has major contusions after landing on top of DS at the bottom of the hill hmm

Kids eh?!

BT I Thought your ds was called Tim and you had issues with him drinking all the bathwater and eating all the soap?

purepurple Tue 24-Nov-09 16:08:03

OP, are you sure NHS direct didn't send a doctor round?
I've heard DR Foster is on his way. But I hope you don't live anywhere near Gloucester, not with all the rain we keep having.

Bouncing turtle is it your ds who got the cat out of the well? give him a break

BouncingTurtle Tue 24-Nov-09 15:49:58

Well can someone do something about my DS?

He keeps insisting on wearing his trousers to bed. And one of his shoes as well angry

Can anyone one help to get John undressed for bed?

deaddei Tue 24-Nov-09 15:34:08

I hope none of you are sucking your thumb, or the SCissorMan will come and snip them off like poor little Suckathumb.
Now that would be a challenge for NHS Direct.

ROFL. I love all of these nursery rhymes. As a primary teacher and mother of a young toddler, it's quite central to my world grin MrsDucky I hope you found your ducks.
I was so surprised that people actually responded seriously to this at first grin what good sports!

giraffesCannaeFlingPieces Mon 23-Nov-09 21:17:31

MrsDucky have you tried calling on your dc? Perhaps shout "quack quack quack" while wiggling your arse tail?

monkeymaman Mon 23-Nov-09 21:17:29

Did they go over the hills and far away?

You have my every sympathy. It's not easy being the mother of spirited dc, and people don't always understand. sad

Fleecy Mon 23-Nov-09 21:16:59

MrsD, if you take them again another few times, you might find you 'lose' one more each time. The last time, go on your own and I'm fairly certain they'll all come back. HTH

MrsDucky Mon 23-Nov-09 21:15:03

I know, i mean what am i supposed to do, go with them?! angry

giraffesCannaeFlingPieces Mon 23-Nov-09 21:14:58

grin I got it after the first message

monkeymaman Mon 23-Nov-09 21:06:54

MrsD, thank you! Finally someone who understands me!

snala Mon 23-Nov-09 21:06:15

Have you tried Dr Brown Bear? wink

MrsDucky Mon 23-Nov-09 21:05:35

Yanbu, my dc went swimming today and when it was time to come home only four of them bothered, and one of them is missing angry

Sidge Mon 23-Nov-09 21:05:05

Fry some sausages in a pan - the pop and the bang may well scare them into stopping.

catastrojb Mon 23-Nov-09 21:02:26

the doctor may well tell them to stop jumping on the bed, but they'll only jump on the sofa instead....naughty monkeys! grin

monkeymaman Mon 23-Nov-09 20:58:38

What song? What are you talking about?!

Fleecy Mon 23-Nov-09 20:57:53

Gah - now I have the song in my head and it's in Judy from the Tweenies voice...

pagwatch Mon 23-Nov-09 20:54:32

It all went to crap when the NHS startedthis out of hours crap.
If you catch your GP during the day its fine. He will just sit them down and tell them to damn well stop it. He rarely even seemed to mind that they are actually primates.
But call in the evening when the Friend of Miss Molly is unwell and they rat a tat tat on the door, all dressed up and accessorised with a huge air of self importance. And the speed with which they whip out the bill is unbelievable.

And fucking Doctor Foster never seems to get here when its raining
