Go round shutting the toilet doors all the time in the local play area!!!!
Sat there yesterday looking round, not one other parent had to get up and shut toilet doors!!! Bet they must think I'm bit odd (well, ok, I am a little!!!) looking round checking the doors are closed, otherwise Ellie disapears into them to play with the toliet!!
Hope you all come up with some others so I know I am not the only one who seems odd!!!!
....has to position the trolley equi-distant from either side of the aisle to prevent tins being hurled in every direction!
Learnt that trick after dd pulled a fully try of glass jars of beetroot on to the floor in Asda...one VERY harrassed mummy, a ruined pair of shoes, an even more harrassed ASDA cleaner and an extremely amused DD!
...carry dd into nursery every morning
...listen to my little angel singing herself to sleep with "Hap Bear-day tooo meeeeeeee!" every night for the last week
...confiscate any birthday presents with small pieces in because she still puts everything in her mouth at the age of 4
...do the "Little Green Frog" dance to make dd chuckle
...get funny looks from the checkout girl for buying pull-ups for a 4 year old beacuse the continence service won't provide them
I have to close all the toilet doors at our local play area too. DS2 loves opening and closing doors, but the ones at the play area are quite heavy. He plays with the gates at the entrance instead! Luckily he just stands there opening and closing them so I don't have to worry about him running off (obviously I watch him though!)
I do get lots of funny looks though, as he would just do that all day if he could! (he will spend a little time on the slide sometimes)
Vix - could be a godsend! I get funny looks at the soft play centre for being the only Over 8 year old (well the only Over 28 year old actually) in the ball pool! Dd can't manage to get up the steps to the slide or across the rope bridge or through the itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny trap door that is far too small for my back side to fit through (!), but does that deter her? Of course not - Mummy will help me! Took me two weeks and a full tube of arnica cream, to get rid of the bruises from last time! Still get funny looks from other parents, but couldn't give a damn, Marley loves it and gets so much from it.
The only parent that has to go round in public saying 'that's asda price' then slapping herself firmly on the behind!! (ds2 demands company in his echolalia!!!)
The only parent that has to ensure no cups or beakers are left lying around when we visit friends or ds1 will pee into them if you arent quick enough. Try being at a friends house and trying to apologise cos ds1 got hold of her daughters not-quite-finished orange and added to it. (I was only looking at photos, serves me right I suppose).
The only parent that leaps across the room in a single bound to prevent ds1 from flashing the neighbours out the window. (he does a very cute wiggle dance though!)
