have to take DS1 to his induction afternoon (2nd one - hoping he doesn't throw up like he did last week LOL) at his new school.........thing is DS2 has his sleep at 1pm-3pm - and the induction afternoon starts at 1.30

So I'm going to put DS2 down for his sleep as usual, at 1.30 on the dot grab the monitor, lock the front door and whizz round to the school to drop DS1 off - then whizz back again

i wouldnt sorry!

WigWamBam Tue 21-Jun-05 11:35:07

Sorry, I wouldn't either. I know you're close to the school, but I wouldn't risk it.

Gobbledigook Tue 21-Jun-05 11:35:39

Oooh, me either! I know a few people who do similar but I couldn't.

Nemo1977 Tue 21-Jun-05 11:35:43

i do hope ur joking..

I measure it yesterday - end of my garden to his bedroom door is FURTHER than the school door.....

Could you not put him down for his slep in his buggy or in the car? Or even just delay the nap by 40 mins?

I wouldn't risk it either - sorry.

Nemo1977 Tue 21-Jun-05 11:36:42

put him in his pram to sleep then take him with

WigWamBam Tue 21-Jun-05 11:36:56

I still wouldn't risk it; sorry. Can't you delay the nap by half an hour, to be completely certain that he's safe?

MrsDoolittle Tue 21-Jun-05 11:39:02

I'd be careful. I know of a chap who crossed the roads from his house to go to the ATM machine and his two liitle kiddies set fire to the house.
He's up for manslaughter.
Chances are all would be well but what if??

Lizzylou Tue 21-Jun-05 11:39:21

I wouldn't risk it at all...but then I don't leave the house at all when DS is asleep....not even the end of the garden.....(patio is OK tho! )

QueenOfQuotes Tue 21-Jun-05 11:39:30

what am I 'risking' - I've been spending these hot sunny days at the end of my garden (often forgetting to take the monitor out with me).

Caligula Tue 21-Jun-05 11:40:03

Are you needing to stay with DS1 for any length of time, or is just a question of dropping him off?

QueenOfQuotes Tue 21-Jun-05 11:40:23

Hmm - don't think DS2 would be climbing out his cot and setting fire to the house...........and he could do that while I'm in the garden and I'd never notice until there was smoke billowing out the house!

MrsDoolittle Tue 21-Jun-05 11:40:30

If you're so sure, why do you need to post it??

Nemo1977 Tue 21-Jun-05 11:40:35

if you dont think its a riskthen why is the thread titled a 'bad mummy moment'????????

Nemo1977 Tue 21-Jun-05 11:40:49

QueenOfQuotes Tue 21-Jun-05 11:40:52

QueenOfQuotes Tue 21-Jun-05 11:41:37

because I 'knew' that you'd all jump on me like a ton of bricks . I'm not 'asking' if I should do it, I'm just commenting.

oops 'slightly' trollish behaviour

jessicasmummy Tue 21-Jun-05 11:41:40

mrs d and nemo - totally agree - why bother posting if you're gonna do it anyway.

TracyK Tue 21-Jun-05 11:42:22

QueenOfQuotes Tue 21-Jun-05 11:42:36

Nemo1977 Tue 21-Jun-05 11:42:53

QueenOfQuotes Tue 21-Jun-05 11:43:22

MrsDoolittle Tue 21-Jun-05 11:43:27
