ds used to love it too... now he likes to shove mobile phones in there so I guess enjoy it while it lasts!

In front of = good.

Inside = bad. Allegedly.

yanbu,my 10 week old loves it,I pop her in her chair in front of it first thing in the morning so I can have a whole cup of coffee before starting the daily feeding/sterlising/nappy changing torture
routine

Have you actually sat and watched the washing go round? It is kind of hypnotic - it is very nice indeed.

Wow, am sittimg here with baby who has been writhing and fussing for half an hour. Just turned the hair dryer on, he is now gazing at me adoringly and relaxed completely.

Thank you cheekysealion.

DD used to love the hoover, but the hairdryer is easier!

Yanbu, this keeps dc entertained for ages!

SmallSCREAMCap Fri 09-Oct-09 19:34:38

oops

I used to do this. The DDs are now fairly disturbed normal.

EdgarAllenPoo Fri 09-Oct-09 19:40:03

apparently my Dh did this when small. now he watches formula 1 - the difference to me seems very slight.

SmallSCREAMCap Fri 09-Oct-09 19:40:49

He has now given me a couple of beaming toothless smiles and gone to sleep.

How much do I owe you grin

I am so going to try this. Mine loves the hairdryer too, particularly if I "swish" her with my hair too. Of course, if she actually manages to grab a handful of my hair, it can get painful.

I used to pop into the laundrette with DS when he was small for a 'treat'!

TrillianSlasher Fri 09-Oct-09 20:04:14

D'you reckon it's the white noise? Like in the womb with blood rushing around and stomach noises. That's the only thing I can think to link washing machine, hoover, and hairdryer.

SmallSCREAMCap Fri 09-Oct-09 20:06:31

I think so Trillian. Anything with an engine, really.

insertwittynicknameHERE Fri 09-Oct-09 20:14:43

I must try this with the DD1, I might get some peace from the seemingly never ending repeating of 'geese are naughty, they get ya, gra gra chase em, naughty geese' grin

gra gra = grandad

SmallSCREAMCap Fri 09-Oct-09 20:24:29

insert - how old is DD1 though? IME it only works with small babies, but you never know

<installs Boeing turbine in DD1 (aged 6)'s wardrobe>

EAP - love it.
My dd was resistant when a little baby. Around 8-10 months - I could get all the washing up done and the lunch made. Marvellous!

...this backs up my point about Formula 1!
