I'm guilty. I admit it. I sat in a cafe and I judged in a baaaaad way. But I'm not appologising, ignore, go on, don't read, I'm just venting..

Child sitting with it's mother, child was about 5, she's sitting there reading an encyclopedia to it, trying to teach it the correct anatomical names for bones. Child has a paddy, pays no attention at all, granny walks in and sits talking to a person sitting next to her about said child, how bright he is la da da! Child then starts screaming because he wants crisps (despite polishing off a huge cookie), after a few feble attempts at "no, you can't have that" mother gives in and the little darling gets crisps....that he then spills all over the floor, granny in the mean time is still talking about how clever child is. Child then starts screaming when asked to sit down and pulls yet another tantrum.

How many times now? Being clever isn't an excuse to behave like the exorcist!!
There's no point teaching your child the anatomical bone names if they can't behave well enough to leave the house!
That's better.

I feel sorry for the poor child.

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 21:30:25

Thankyou. I had to down my drink and leave he was so loud. I thought I was being unreasonably bitchy!!

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 21:31:01

I feel sorry for his teacher aswell!

GwarchodwrPlant Sun 26-Jul-09 21:34:15

It's not the kids fault he behaves like this. He doesn't know any other way to behave with such poor adults around him and what child wants to be taught the correct anatomical terms from an encyclopedia FGS!

bigstripeytiger Sun 26-Jul-09 21:39:56

That poor boy. His first few weeks at medical school are just going to be boring for him. grin

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 21:44:31

Yup. School too I imagine. Ds spent a little time trying to help me learn the 12 cranial nerves for my exams, I felt blush about this, I'd never go the whole hog though. The thought of sitting in a cafe force feeding him an encyclopedia horrifies me. It was so blatently showing off. Poor lad.

oh I would have judged too

basic manners and behaviour are under rated

bigstripeytiger Sun 26-Jul-09 21:48:16


There is a little rhyme that makes that very easy to learn. Not suitable for children though. grin

I cant help but think that rl situations that are relayed on MN are often embellished in order to ensure the desired response.

But ignore me, I'm just having a rant! wink

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 21:54:54

Oh, really? A rhyme?

I've got to do an osteology exam again so cold do with some bone rhymes.
I did try to earwig but she wasn't going indepth enough for my needs grin, OTT for a 5 year old though.

Post the rhymes, go on, you know you want to share.

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 21:57:07

Nope, seriously was sitting reading an encyclopedia to him, he had cookie, then crisps, a couple of screaming/shouting/crying paddies.

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 21:57:55

I live far away from lovely Scotland scottishmummy.

scottishmummy Sun 26-Jul-09 22:03:10

better than being sat in front of telly with PS.i expect full knowledge,and location of zygomatic and palatine bones

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 22:06:42

I'm having real problems with the zygomatic and palatine bones. There's so many bits. I should have got the 5 year old to sit the exam for me grin

KembleTwins Sun 26-Jul-09 22:07:57

Why would you even take an encylopaeidia with you to a cafe? I mean, I do sometimes take books to entertain DC when we go out, but encycopaedias are HUGE. You'd have to have a fairly hefty handbag. Pah, show-offs.

scottishmummy Sun 26-Jul-09 22:09:30

lacrimal gets me every timewink more compulsory anatomy for weans definitley

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 22:20:33

grin Ds used to take a reading book everywhere (in the days before the nintendo Ds), IIRC at 5 he would read jokes, never an encyclopedia though (in the house sometimes though).

scottishmummy Sun 26-Jul-09 22:26:13

you will all be laughing other side of your face when lil bone master graduates med school in 5 year time or he may choose the 4 year graduate entry programme. providing his degree in mandarin and egyptology provide entry

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 22:32:40

I have to get on that course before ds!!!!!

He wants to learn philosophy. I'll be damned if I allow him to leave the house reading Plato though!!

bigstripeytiger Sun 26-Jul-09 22:56:38

Here are a selection of cranial nerve rhymes

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Sun 26-Jul-09 23:00:38

Do you know any for bones? smile Not the 'this is a femur', it needs to be anatomical neck of femur, surgical neck of femur etc??

weebump Sun 26-Jul-09 23:02:17

There's one thing I need to know (and excuse my ignorance):

What do you mean by a paddy?
