Me and mummy liked the idea of babiesnet!

So today I went to nanny and grandad's house, where I kept being sick on mummy and nanny. I screamed loudly for aaages to stop grandad being able to hear the football, then I had a bottle and used mummy as a pillow for an hour and a half.

I just made mummy my milk fetcher and sick mopper think I wanted a bottle, then made sure I was asleep by the time it arrived, result!

The milk vampire has been talking about taking my entertainers to something called a dentist. I'm wondering where the enjoyment factor for me is going to come in. She's having cake right now. I'm letting her get on with it as I'm rather fond of the stuff myself once it filters throughgrin

Is anyone else's mouth being all hurty? I'm having to bite things, myself, the victim, the entertainers and anything else that gets too close to my mouth. The victim has been muttering about "sodding teeth" quite a lot. I may need to google when she's not looking...

From here on in, I shall be referred to as ... MiniRK

Cool, no?

Well I had an interesting afternoon - I went to something called a crèche whilst the parental unit 1 learnt about how to feed me things other than milk shock hmm. It was very enjoyable, rocked to sleep, fed and then entertained what more could a baby want?!

Hmmm...not sure I'm liking the sound of that. Food other than milk?!

I'm going to see if I can play the same games with my dummy tonight with FU1. Firstly I shall ping it off the bars, so she thinks its gone on the floor, spends ages looking for it and gives up, when in reality it's hiding under my back! I shall also repeatedly ping it out for a good half hour at about 5 grin.

My mouth is killing me BabyFlustered. Whenever FU 1 or 2 is stupid enough to hold me facing away from them, I take the chance to use the thumb joint as a teether. It produces ectoplasm-like goo, and it's even better doing it on FU1 as she mutters something about 'OOOOOWWWWWW, that's where my fucking tendonitis is!'.
I also eat the antennae of Mr C, my caterpillar.

Today I have been stabbed, stripped naked and put on a plate (with blue tissue), pushed around in the rain, been to a nursery with other babies (some had snotty noses, not cool), sniffed at by a smelly dog and been in and out of the car seat more times than I care to remember...
I can't decide how exactly to exact my revenge. To sleep or not to sleep?
My mouth hurts too. And everywhere I go, there are puddles. And mum keeps putting these gay bandana things around my neck. I think these things are related. I'm not keen on any of it!

UntamedShrew Wed 18-Apr-12 19:19:46

Oh not sleep, definitely. At least you've been weighed, my milk provider clearly doesn't care about my weight and just keeps laughing at all the rolls on my thighs. <Sniff> It's a sensitive issue for me.

Still I am getting a good workout every night rolling over (and screaming until rolled back again) and wriggling like a demented ferret every time she puts me near her chest (yummy, nipples are so chewy!) and refusing the bottle the Big One keeps offering at night. So I will soon be goddess like.

Also I've done my first poop of 8 whole days so I feel like a new baby but a bit exhausted by all that effort grin

LittleMissFlustered Wed 18-Apr-12 19:28:37

Welcome Shrew 'tis good to know you're on course for deificationsmile

The milk victim has eaten lots of cake today, the milk is gooood!

aethelfleda Wed 18-Apr-12 19:52:53

I like those gay bandana things. They are tasty!!! Takes my mind off the ** teeth thing.

I hung with L'il Tyel in his 'Hood today. The dude has a killer baby swing.
We even conversed for twenty seconds before our attention spans ran out. And I demoed my explosive ability, I think he was impressed...

OiMissus Wed 18-Apr-12 20:53:04

Ah much respect to those who have mastered the clench-to-poosplosion! We rule!!

OiMissus Wed 18-Apr-12 23:44:02

My food providers are trying to buy a new play space for me. The people selling it are being a bit weird. But, if we do get it, you're all invited to come and stay (there are free bedrooms and another room) and party with me.
And we can have a bandana-fest, and whoever covers it in the most drool could win a prize.
And the food providers could do a BBQ, and then liquidize it for us. smile

Well Party going on over at Oi's house woohoo!!!

Well I was stripped neked, put In a cold plate and kept still and then told by PU1 that I was a porker shock feed and sleep to think that trauma off grin

aethelfleda Thu 19-Apr-12 13:17:09

Yeah, I got stripped too and stuck on a plate: What is the attraction of this activity? It's freezing cold and Mother and the other lady both seemed enthusiastic, while frankly I felt it was most undignified.

Oh well, mother has announced she wants to do some "Housework" before she picks up the big sisters. I am not convinced at all. Her purpose is as chief food dispenser and pillow. I shall sleep on her, that will thwart her plans. <snore>

I decided I would keep screaming when PU1 sat down with me and then when she stood up I stopped - what a fun game for me grin

Now seeing if I can get my play gym bar to fall on my head if I pull it hard enough!

Good one aethelspawn - they can't object, but then neither can they move. It is an almost honourable, Gandhi-like non-violent approach- are you feeling well?!

FU1 completely messed up any routine today- with my assistance of course! I woke about half an hour early, too late to go back to sleep, to early to feed, so of course she cracked and took me into the big comfy bed with her. I was able to feed to my heart's content, and then of course we both fell asleep, meaning she overslept by an hour and we had a huge rush to get out of the house!

Sky - given your indignities, the 'only stop screaming when Big Ones are standing up' game is the least you could do to them!

KateM77 Thu 19-Apr-12 16:00:35

Twice today I've pulled the 'only poo once you have a brand new clean nappy on' trick. How many points for those clenching skills?

MiniChilla I'm now messing around with my feed. I want it but going to be fussy about it!

BJR Thu 19-Apr-12 16:27:56

Good trick Desperate Dan, I'm also a fan of the poo just after they take the nappy off trick! Now that one keeps them on their toes grin

neverenoughsleeportea Thu 19-Apr-12 16:52:32

I've done the poo wait poo trick. My ma is pretty skilled though and managed to catch the second poo in a clean nappy. I'll get her next time...

EasilyBored Thu 19-Apr-12 17:56:17

Aloha fellow babies!

Ah, the good old poo, wait, poo. Haven't done that in a while. Did manage to do a sneaky epic poo this morning, silly milk fetcher didn't notice till it had leaked all over her dressing gown. She said some words I haven't heard before, must be sure to remember those when I get the hang of this talking thing.

Been practicing my rolling really hard, makes the big folk jump and down and clap when I manage it. Got it's hard entertaining these people. In the bath last night, I was having a brilliant time, treated them to my first belly laugh, AND THEY STARTED CRYING! You just can't win round here.

Got jabbed in the thigh THREE TIMES yesterday, really hurt. The big folk gave me some really tasty goo at bed time, which kind of made it all better for a while. I'm SO TIRED though, have been napping like a boss today, but everytime I get comfy on the big person, she ups and turfs me back to my cage?! Cowbag.

OH, AND.. she was trimming my nails the other day (only after I scratched a chunk out of my face, see how much attention she pays to me?!) and she CLIPPED MY FINGER! Blood everywhere, and SHE has the nerve to get upset about it! I'm the one bloody bleeding!

The other big person has been away today, so he didn't give me my milk last night, and she keeps saying something about him not being home for bath time either. Maybe I should try and stay up late to see him, I'm sure he will have missed me. Yeah. That sounds like a good plan. Wouldn't want to deprive him of my company!

I'm playing the feeding game where i'm messing PU1 about to have my bottle making lots of screeching noises and i think PU1 is tired and irritable which is hahahaha....grin

Wonder how long I can keep her up for tonight and how many times I can get her up over night too!

OiMissus Thu 19-Apr-12 21:55:06

Guys n gals, your efforts are sterling! I tried to score some points at baby massage today but both times I peed,,she caught it and shielded herself with her hand. Good work, mamma, but I will get you!
They're trying to make me drink my milk out of hard cold things. No. I want boobage. I think mummy wants to leave me in strange places. I don't mind these people, but I need my boobage.
Have had maximum cuddles today -from the nursery ladies, then ladies at mummy's work, then after massage with grandma and gramps. Cool. Am so chilled now. Z z z z z... Rest well folks. Maybe we should give them a break and have nice long sleeps tonight?...
Nah!
Boobage!

I have only managed the poo wait poo trick once; personally I favour the stealth poo, where you do it quietly, or when a FU is out of the room so they don't realise, and it gives it maximum time to seep through nappy, clothes, and onto any surrounding carpet, rug, chair, etc grin. They do realise fairly quickly owing to the pong, so I get my bum cleaned...but not quickly enough!

I wonder if our FUs/parents are communicating BOi- my amount of boobage has been reduced to four times a day, and I do not approve.

I keep on hearing rumours that FU2 is going to be looking after me... I shall investigate and report back.

KateM77 Fri 20-Apr-12 12:56:23

I tried the stealth poo yesterday when Mummy left the room, but my big sister spoiled my fun by shouting 'Daniel poo'! I'm building up for a big poosplosion today though. I normally do one in the morning but I'm storing it up today. I think I'll wait until we're out for big sister's birthday outing at the farm in order to cause maximum trouble grin

EasilyBored Fri 20-Apr-12 15:27:50

LOL, have totally confused the mummybot, went to bed at 7 last night, slept till about 2 when I woke up hungry, did a huge projectile vom all over dad, and my bedroom, then went back to sleep. Normally I'd wake up for food about 5, but I wasn't in the mood last night, so just slept all the way to half 7. Overheard mummybot say something about her being awake half the night wondering why I wasn't awake!

So, we went 'swimming' today. It's kinda like a bath, but not as warm, and they make you wear the most stupid outfits. It was fun though, mummybot blew bubbles under the water and it was HILARIOUS! And then we had to walk home in the rain, silly woman remembered my rain cover but forgot her coat. Skipped my morning nap this today, so had a lovely sleep at lunch. Actually, I'm getting pretty tired now too, guess I should probably stop watching TV and get mum to put me to bed.

OiMissus Fri 20-Apr-12 23:50:32

I'm not tired. I'm not in the slightest bit tired. I'm not even tired. I've never been so not tired. Never have i known someone who was as not tired as me. N.o.t. T.i.r.e.d. Just not tir... Z z z z.
