That's children sorted I can retire. wink

grin. You are very funny.

zzzzz Wed 10-Oct-12 08:45:18

Perhaps we should award them to people for the most stupendously idiotic advice given.......<drifts off into fantasy award ceremony>

It is SO much cheaper than provision - please don't let the Government see this while they are drafting legislation! A caring carrot for each child would drastically reduce the SEN bill!

2 queries

1. Go on admit it - who has asked for one in their Xmas stocking wink?

2. Who will carry one into their next "multi-disciplinary meeting"?

zzzzz Wed 10-Oct-12 11:59:25

boc grin

I may have to buy one.

Can I draw your attention to this bazaar finding?

zzzzz What on EARTH is that?

I SO want one. I can stick pins in it, and punch it and verbally abuse it!

zzzzz Wed 10-Oct-12 12:30:56

I have no idea.

I accidentally google images "goose eating carrot" (don't ask how this happened life is a little surreal today) and that's what came up!

How can there be pages of hand drawn geese with carrots just hanging out in on the net???

I do want a carrot though.....I like the idea of Voodoo carrot. [ grin]

No way do I ever want to see my children cuddle it though. That would freak me out.

Halloween party game for SN Mums (just add strong liquor!)

You will need:-
Music - "Pass the the Duchy" by Musical Youth, "Time is running out" by Muse, or "Burn down da system" by Collie Budz.
HAT PIN - vintage design - this must be from the refridgerator Mother era and well sharpened, modern designs are just too humane
Alcohol - variety not important so long as it's strong (moonshine or absinthe may add an additional suitably hallucinogenic surreal atmosphere to proceedings )
A caring carrot


1. Play game as per NT child game of pass the parcel.
2. Every time the Music stops the holder of the carrot must "stick that pin where it hurts" (extra points for below the belt).
3. You must stop sticking to da man (or carrot) when the music starts.
4. A winner is declared when the carrot finally disintegrates.

Cackles, Heckles and general abuse are postively encouraged in order to empower players, and facillitate communication.

NB Children should not be present within a 5 mile vicinity of this game lest the language they hear permanently damages their hearing.

I think that it also needs for the current carrot holder to inform the group of something that the caring carrot had said to them.

TheLightPassenger Wed 10-Oct-12 18:44:25

with extra drinks for each mention of Einstein.

Or alternatively we could wait till bonfire night and see what happens when you do stick a rocket up a carrots jacksie. wink

Or we could burn it on top the bonfire while sharing s'mores & a jug of mulled wine (for those SN's Mums with less than 12 months experience of "the system", so just needing a gentle introduction to cc destruction techniques at this stage, as I think this is far to civilised to have any theraputic benefit for the rest of us).

inappropriatelyemployed Wed 10-Oct-12 19:07:47

Or pin it to a Catherine wheel...grin You see that thought makes me feel brighter already.

OMG I would LOVE to see a carrot going round in circles getting nowhere whilst running out of energy!!

TheTimeTravellersWife Wed 10-Oct-12 19:17:06

I SO want to take one to DDs Annual Review meeting!

Me too. I thinking it is unlikely that the LA will attend so would love to take CC as their representative.

TheTimeTravellersWife Wed 10-Oct-12 19:24:42

It is a Year 5 AR, when we have to think about secondary transfer - so everyone will be attending! I plan to keep schtum and see what they have to say...I will probably be better off talking to my carrot.

Yes. Keep quiet and listen. Always.

BeeMom Wed 10-Oct-12 20:04:13

Can someone tell me how to share a picture here? I HAVE to contribute something I made for DS at Easter a couple of years ago... He has a "mildly" warped sense of humour, and so he got a zombie bunny with its pet dead carrot... he still keeps the ruddy thing on his bed grin

coff33pot Wed 10-Oct-12 21:41:41

Haha! I must have one! grin

Zzzzz goose kissing a carrot ???? Haha!

inappropriatelyemployed Wed 10-Oct-12 22:43:06

I think we should see who dares take them to ARs, Tribunals or other 'important' SEN stuff.....neatly placed on a table or poking helpfully out of a handbag or even poised, ready to make suggestions, pen in hand!

Maybe that should become the name of my blog (when I get round to doing it!) or have trademarked it Star!

mariamma Wed 10-Oct-12 22:52:35

I have a post-it in ds's 'important meeting files'. On it is written (in tiny writing) "Bag of lies, shite and complete bollocks". I stick it discreetly on anything which really upsets or annoys me.

This is in honour of the regular poster who accidentally sent the LEA her own annoted copy with her honest personal assessment of their EP's rather optimistic report grin.

mariamma Wed 10-Oct-12 22:54:45

Can you imagine the scene at tribunal "Oh no, they've got a carrot, sh*t, you know what that means, quick, call the barrister"

zzzzz Wed 10-Oct-12 23:07:52

The carrot of fear!

I love the thought of professionals quaking at the sight of a stuffed carrot. grin

Perhaps there will come a time when even a sliver of carrot cake will do the job.

(do you think we should warn ikea they my have a run on stuffed carrots)

inappropriatelyemployed Wed 10-Oct-12 23:09:16

Or maybe we could also dress like this

zzzzz Wed 10-Oct-12 23:12:15


The best thing about you geese is you really GET the carrot thing.

coff33pot Wed 10-Oct-12 23:15:40

I love it! Just the ticket! grin

mariamma Wed 10-Oct-12 23:49:13

Think I'll get one for dc3's cot. Early intervention is key.

Y'know, even tho this one seems at least semi-NT at the mo, but you can't be too careful wink

GhostofMammaTJ Wed 10-Oct-12 23:53:09

Can I volunteer an ex friend to wear a carrot suit to be passed around us mums to be stuck with hat pins please?

My friend had just got a diagnosis of ADHD for her DS. This idiot, we shall call him carrot man, kept saying 'I'll have a word with him, he'll listen to me' and grabbing every opportunity to berate the poor child about his (admittedly very bad) behaviour and tell him to improve.

I am so glad carrot man was out of my life by the time my DD started showing signs.

Anyway, good candidate?

"Bag of lies, shite and complete bollocks".

Oh yes. That lifted the spirit of MNSN board for weeks!

inappropriately, -0 I think perhaps we should refuse to attend any mediation unless the LA staff are dressed like that.

FangsGoForTheMaidensThroat Thu 11-Oct-12 07:58:06

dD would love glancing at that carrot then throwing it away!

zzzzz Thu 11-Oct-12 10:22:54

"early intervention" grin Brilliant!

Forced carrot costumes for the carrotesque. Ooooooo yeh!

Please tell me there is a carrot version of doing this

mariamma Thu 11-Oct-12 18:55:43

Aha! Off to wool shop! And next time i'm up at the county council HQ will be grabbing a packet of seeds and doing this
