Ooh, the dinosaur park?

Raining here too. Ds1 has been for his pre-school vaccinations this afternoon. He was very brave and didn't cry - the spiderman chocolate lolly helped with that! Then we went to the ice-cream parlour for chocolate ice-cream with smarties, and looked for conkers on the way home to burn off all the sugar! We're now snuggled up watching Shrek. smile

Hope you feel better soon Bonkey.

Glad you and your Dp are talking State. Hope you and Tee get some better sleep tonight.

Excellent news Empress. grin I'm looking forward to moving into Cake Town. I think we'll be very happy there. <Scoffs hot chocolate fudge cake>

EmpressOfTheSevenScreams Thu 11-Oct-12 15:31:25

Not long now!
Bonkey's put a norty picture up already.

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 15:42:07

Norty picture?

Me?? Never! grin

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 15:48:40

dreamy Lolly work wonders for jabs!!
Conkers!! Why have I completely missed that its conker time! shock I think me and ds will have to go foraging at the weekend!

Ds has come home in tears. Apparently his friend pushed him over and didn't say sorry. He's had a ice pack on his head according to his teacher. sad Bloody kids!

Hope you manage to have your trip tomorrow State!

Absolutely pissing down with rain today. LittleTee and I were drenched when we got home from school.

::piles more blankets on Bonkey::

Are we moving soon?

::starts packing::

DreamySleepyNightySnoozySnooze Thu 11-Oct-12 18:25:44

Well we didn't actually find any conkers… I'm assuming it is conker time? Maybe the wet summer means there won't be many this year. There's usually loads in our village.

EmpressOfTheSevenScreams Thu 11-Oct-12 18:40:30

We've got quite a few.
Yes, not long now! <starts folding throws>
How are you, Bonkey?

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 20:00:41

<digs self out of blankets>

Bit better now.
Ds is asleep, dh is at work, I have peace!

16 posts to go!!

It is indeed empress dd is really excited, forecast this morning said rain tonight and dry tomorrow then rain tomorrow night, so far its following the forecast so I have my fingers crossed.

Chocolate lollys are magic for jabs, I used the same with my big two dreamy

bonkey what have you done <stern look> grin

We have conkers here but our estate is built in a forest so there's random trees all over, ds was told at school spiders don't like conkers so he's been carrying two around all week.

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 20:34:57

shock Nothing! apart from a few dodgy cake pics blush

I like the picture topics. i promise i will behave in the new puddle. hmm


i learnt the spider thing on MN last year! I will be lining my windows this year to stop the buggers!

ZombTEE Thu 11-Oct-12 20:36:37

Like the White Knight and the mousetrap, State? grin

LittleTee was so tired after dinner he asked to go to bed! Poor little guy is so worn out from school. But after soiling himself at preschool today he actually used the potty tonight for a...well...poo! grin Yes, TMI, I know. But, please god, let this the beginning of the end...

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 20:37:41

Three cheers for LittleTee!!!

I remember that feeling well Tee!!! grin

StateofConfusion Thu 11-Oct-12 20:39:35

We have to have a bit of mischeif bonks after all that's how the puddle was born.

Horrray for little tee and the potty!

Which has just reminded me I'm heading back into nappies, and the thought makes me want to cry, its been a year since I've changed one. Now can you all tell me its not as bad as I remember?

ZombTEE Thu 11-Oct-12 20:41:23

I don't think it's that bad, State, when they're little. It's my 3 year old pooing in his pants that's so bad!

Excepting explosive all the way up the back how the hell did something that small poo that much Poos.™

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 20:43:46

I agree, I would rather do nappies that poo in pants!

Ds went through a stage of doing it and its bloody gross! Pack of pants was on our shopping list every week for about a month. I refuse to wash them!

I think I did 98% of ds's nappies from birth shock . Dh is useless in that department!

ZombTEE Thu 11-Oct-12 20:47:02

After the first few, Bonkey, I took away the Fireman Sam pants grandma gave him and bought white 6 for £2 from Primark, which now get thrown away. I've told him if he has no accidents, at home, child minder or preschool, for a week, he can have the cool ones back.

I'm hoping he's thinking about that!

He also went the entire afternoon with no dummy after we chatted about the fact that Miss Brown, his teacher, thinks he would speak clearer if he didn't have it. hmm

The power of the teacher!

StateofConfusion Thu 11-Oct-12 20:49:46

Oh I'm the same bonkey I chuck rather than scrub they're cheap enough!

See that's what I'm remembering tee my dd was nickname pooskipsi (what carrie says to charlotte in the satc film) as every other poo went from her neck to toes ----nothing to do with the fact I let her spend too much time in an activity centre or she screeeeeamed----she also filled her carseat, anyone who had a maxi cosi infant seat, there's a storage pod on the back, no idea but it even got in there! She's a smelly sod too!

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 20:50:24

We conquered ours with a sticker chart and the promise of a Cars2 toy at the end. Did the trick! wish I had thought of it sooner .hmm

Teachers are bloody amazing!

I told ds not to run into the classroom, what does he do? Run into the classroom and jump on the floor. Teacher tell him off, no running since!! hmm

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 20:51:26

State I had that carseat 8 bloody months before I found the secret stash box!

StateofConfusion Thu 11-Oct-12 20:52:03

My dd still has her dummy, so shoot me, she only sleeps well 3/4 nights a week, and that thing helps, it does now live in her bed --and I may have told her not to tell anyone at nursery-- but sod it, I've worked too long and hard to help her sleep as much as she does I am not risking it for anything! <Shit parent award>

StateofConfusion Thu 11-Oct-12 20:53:06

Ds and dd are the same, teachers given so much respect and adoration, I'm pretty much ignored.

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 20:53:55

Oh oh oh whos doing thread no.3 ???

EmpressOfTheSevenScreams Thu 11-Oct-12 20:56:58

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Thu 11-Oct-12 20:57:37
