I would be a mean mummy to grab it back off them, wouldn't I?

4 years old and planning midnight feasts?smile

not particularly mean at all.

She was sent down by her older brothers...they haven't brushed their teeth yet, but she has.

Really can't be arsed to go through the whole "hello, I'm mummy, and I'm a dentist" routine again.

That's sweet! Have they broken up then?

differentID Wed 22-Jul-09 20:45:51

can you find a pic of someone who has really rotten teeth and pin it up in the bathroom?

oh that's sweet. I found food in my 7 yr old son's tent the other day. He has a small tent in his room. He had carrot batons and a tub of hummus I'd been wondering about.

He'd never eat that at the table!

Oh yes, Cornsilk....they have broken up. 7 weeks of no school! smile

differentID, I did see a woman chewing her gums the other day and I said to my two "you know how mummy's always nagging you to brush your teeth?? well, that lady didn't brush her teeth as much as she should have!".

mean?! moi?

You can't deny them a midnight feast!

bigchris Wed 22-Jul-09 20:50:42

but why was it where she could get it? treats should be hidden!

cornsillk Wed 22-Jul-09 20:51:25

I didn't know you had a little girl Lynette - I don't know why but I thought you just had boys. smile

LynetteScavo Wed 22-Jul-09 21:03:35

I have 2 boys and one girl.

The treats are well hidden - they are just uber good at finding them. (Some sort or weird 6th sence)

Last week I hid 2 bars of cadburys, wrapped in a sainsburys bag, on tehetop shelf of the mugs/glasses cupboard. They have disapeared. No one is owning up. (The DC's are blaming Dad. hmm)

There is now a lot of banging coming form DS1's room.

They'll be asking for weird thngs like pineapple chunks, and kippers.

I used to read those books, I loved them, but I thought, what no chomps, no rancheros!?

LynetteScavo Wed 22-Jul-09 21:53:59

They have all fallen asleep in one bed!

On close inspection the toot hbrushes have been used. smile

My son sneaked an easer egg to bed on night without us knowing. We heard him moving about at about 4am. He fell asleep with the egg in his bed, rolled all over it and was covered in melted chocolate.

In his ears, up his nose, in his hair. Not to mention the state of the bed!

We found him in the bathroom, half asleep trying to wash it off. Now the bathroom was full of chocolate!

His dad wasnt amused but I found it really funny. I know I shouldnt laugh but he looked hilarious!!

Awww - what great fun!!

I remember when I was wee (well, I still am but I mean younger!) wink my mum would go to the neighbours house on a Saturday night & leave my big brother looking after me.

He was about 12 which meant I must've been 9! Mum would leave Worchestor sauce crisps & lemonade for him, but I usually wasn't allowed it. It was his treat for 'babysitting' me. hmm

Unbeknown to mum he always split the bag of crisps with me & let me drink the first half of the lemonade...

those are the things I remember... the fun things... not the teeth cleaning & the knee scrubbing!!!

it's part of the holiday fun!
surely if they brush their teeth well generally, the odd night isn't going to make them rot
i'd be amazed if they stay awake til mum recently told me that our 6yo midnight feasts were at about 9.30smile
