Hey Everyone,

I'm new to the site and love reading all your fantastic advice. So I put a question to you;

What product would make your life easier?

What do you think, A nappy bag that has room for a laptop or a birthday party kit that has everything you need.

Let me know

An instant blow up cheap babysitter.

A larger cupboard under the stairs.
Currently I can only fit two of the three DC in so if all three are naughty at the same time it makes things very difficult.

Sorry, forgot...

a full-time babysitter
a cleaner
a professional chef
a winning lottery ticket
the list is endless really grin

Blow up babysitter thats brilliant lol x

Lol covert.
mine would be loft conversion and back extension.

And perhaps super nanny full time

Market research?

Do tell...

Actually I have been trying to convince DH to get a mail order Thai bride.
I'm thinking she can do the cooking, cleaning and looking after the kids while I chill out in my jamas.

convert I have a very large cupboard under the stairs currently collecting years of junk that would easily fit three DC in... now just to find a lock to put on the outside

more sleep - can you buy that?
Cleaner & babysitter on tap - yes yes yes.

I guess it's actual physical help rather than any specific product. I fell for buying a few marketed parenting products when DD1 was a baby (didn't we all) - learnt that lesson quickly. None of it was really any use. Stick to the basics and save your ££ for future babysitters smile

Liking the Thai bride idea, she could sleep in the cupboard under the stairs once she's put the kids to bed obviously

Reaa Fri 18-Jan-13 16:38:50

I'm changing mine-I want a mail order bride for DH too, she can cook, clean, deal with the kids etc

WildRumpus Fri 18-Jan-13 16:39:34

Yup - put me on the waiting list for one of those blow up bsbysitters.. And another pair of arms. And more hours in the day. And while I'm waiting could I have a large glass of wine please?

cravingcake Fri 18-Jan-13 16:41:34

wine for WildRumpus courtesy of the blow up babysitter grin

raininginbaltimore Fri 18-Jan-13 16:42:44

A nanny.

I like the idea of a Thai bride too.

WildRumpus Fri 18-Jan-13 16:44:26

Cheers! grin

A garden. And a Thai Bride.

But, really, a garden for the dog and to hang out the washing. And for the baby to sit and play in.

Convert Fri 18-Jan-13 16:46:31

Cravingcake I find a chair wedged under the handle works very well. Surely locking them in would be a bit cruel. Yes, I hadn't thought about where the mail order bride would sleep but now the cupboard seems like a great idea. Thanks, will run it past DH.

I am giggling imagining all these massive boxes containg the brides waiting when everyones DH gets in from work grin

Hope these ideas are what you were after Richy

I know we are supposed to be boycotting Amazon, but where else can you get good mail order brides from? eBay? I'm not sure I want a second hand one.

VisualiseAHorse Fri 18-Jan-13 16:51:43

I wouldn't want a 2nd hand one either Wild....maybe you could try Not On The Highstreet .com?

I would love a housekeeper & an instant blow up babysitter too.
