when you think that 'hunt the errant poo' is an acceptable game to be played by all the family...

Be sure to use the 60ml variety, the syringe of choice for a enhanced soaking wink

when you join your dd in sniffing an assortment of books!

"Can you please stop licking the puddle" becomes ones of your every day sayings hmm

You give up on curtain poles and velcro the buggers to the window frame instead

When you move the chest of drawers to hoover behind it you discover a mountain of food wrappers and half eaten squishy things that you think hope are apples.

When you open your handbag to reapply your lipstick and have a squirt of perfume (y'know, like most women do) to find only an assortment of hand splints.
DS is up to 4 now for different times/activities. We got rigid blue, rigid red, big softie and little softie.

The syringe thing made me chuckle. I was giving DD her codine in an oral syringe and I happened to glance away for a sec. She was NOT amused when it shot out of her [beautiful] nose.

I know I shouldnt of but I didnt arf larf.

lol re: syringes. Also, when all the numbers have worn off the syringes through years of use, but you can still accurately guess exactly where eg 5.5mls is.

In our house, ykwyhsncw...

You run a nice lukewarm bath for your offspring, in your stuffy bathroom, on the hottest day of the year. One of them shrieks and laughs and leaps into it. The other one just shrieks - because it's too cold. hmm

your 14 months old dd takes less than 10 mins to feed herself with her fingers, and your 3 1/2 years old ds twiddle his spoon for 30 mins in front of a full plate.
DS is just so slowwww wink

Your 7y old Ds2 sets a personal best at Sports Day when he eats an ice lolly without dropping it.

you say night after night at the dinner table in a genuinely FED UP voice - "You KNOW there is no barking at the table"

PersonalClown Wed 01-Jul-09 08:25:52

When nearly every morning you have to explain that even frogs have to get dressed for school!

anonandlikeit Wed 01-Jul-09 09:31:17

You are the one at the school gates with your kids breakfast hanging out of your hair, you look like you've just got out of bed when in fact you've been up for hours....

Can you tell i've had a bad morning grin

You don't bat an eyelash that your almost 6 year old is besotted with the Teletubbies and Nightgarden.

BONKERZ Wed 01-Jul-09 09:58:54

when your 9 year old insists he has to wear trousers, socks, jumper and fleece to school when the weather is hitting 30 degrees outside!
