Free to a good home - one nearly 18 month old boy......

very cute, 86cm tall, short dark hair, beautiful brown eyes, 26.7lbs, says a few words such as hiya, bye, no, na (as in what's that), dada - and can string together hiya dada - so should be a great hit with the males out there, into 'ball games' - preferabbly rugby, but will kick a ball quite well too, good sleeper, good eater, into climbing................

but the cons.....................

Has just learnt how to put his hand in his nappy, pull out the little pellets (must give him more juice today) of poo and play marbles with them on the living room carpet

Eek!! I think you'll not have that many takers, Gwenick

Perhaps should also add instead of getting 'more' clingy as lots of 18 month old's do he's incredibly sociable, will go to anyone - making childcare very easy

eeuww !!

Has anyone managed to get shot of the children they've avertised on MN? I know I'm still stuck with little Atilla.

albert Fri 20-May-05 10:29:33

Oh, I'll take him. Just pack him up and post him to me, DS keeps asking for a brother but I'm a bit past it (or at least it feels like it) but 18 months, yeah, no sweat! He sounds very...erm...entertaining

Gwenick Fri 20-May-05 10:32:48

cheer - albert - I'll stick him in the post this afternooon

Lonelymum Fri 20-May-05 10:36:09

Dress in one of those all-in-one efforts Gwenick, either vests or bodysuits or dungarees. Would that help or does he come at the stuff from below, IYSWIM?

Lonelymum Fri 20-May-05 10:36:56

Can he do zips? What about a zipped up sleepsuit? Would save you having to dress him in the morning!

Gwenick Fri 20-May-05 10:37:36

he's quite tall and finding 'age' appropriate all in ones is tricky - I've seen him with his hand inside his dungaree's before now

and this is a boy who last week escaped from a zipped up Gro-Bag!!!

actually you could be right there hmo2 - I changed him after I'd picked all (well I hope all) of the pellets up and he'd done a more 'smearable' one too!!!

In view of the situation, make sure the packing is up to the 'job' when you post him to me!

Gwenick Fri 20-May-05 10:53:54

I'll wrap him carefully - maybe some heavy duty sellotape round the sides of his nappy

Rhubarb Fri 20-May-05 10:57:59

Will anyone take mine too? Same age, also obsessed with poo, likes turning the microwave on, tries putting books into the DVD player, loves emptying the bin and eating food scraps he finds there, etc, etc, etc!

But he is very cuddly and chubby, has blonde curly hair and big brown eyes, laughs a lot, says "Oui, Allez, da-da, 'nana (for banana), dog and car" He also eats like a horse and we cannot afford to feed him!

All I ask for is that you pay for the postage.

SoupDragon Fri 20-May-05 11:00:34

Duck tape should do the trick, Gwenick.

wasgoingto Fri 20-May-05 11:01:00

rhubarb - you nearly had me swayed there but surely the postage would be exhorbitant.

Donbean Fri 20-May-05 11:01:07

Dont want him but my ds is up for a game of marbles this afternoon........he will fetch his own!
Having said that im deeply deeply regretting giving him prunes while walking around Morrisons yesterday, i was really pleased at the time that i had persuaded him that they are sweeties
Had a BAAAD nappy this morning....

Lonelymum Fri 20-May-05 11:02:39

I know what a nappy post prunes looks like! Sort of soft and full of dark undigested bits - yes?

MarsLady Fri 20-May-05 11:03:48

dagnamit! I was just about to offer up DT2. Have to see how big demand is before I put him forward

Rhubarb Fri 20-May-05 11:04:07

Wasgoingto, if I stick him on a plane he'll be free won't he? I just have to persuade another passenger to strap him onto their knee. Which airport is nearest to you?

MarsLady Fri 20-May-05 11:06:56

Got it! How about buy one get one free? I'll throw in DT1 and a Mars Bar!

Donbean Fri 20-May-05 11:07:59

I know, i was horrified as he wandered past me with a smell that quite frankly put me off my toast and peanut butter.
When i undid the nappy i recoiled in horror and was about to ring the council to send some one to muck him out!

Rhubarb Fri 20-May-05 11:11:38

Nooooo, take mine! He needs a good home!
