to think my gro-egg is BU
justmeokay · 10/07/2015 20:04
since I bought it it's been constantly angry, red, and telling me it's too hot for my DD to wear anything more than a nappy. It IS hot, I'll give it that. But I don't think it's always 27 degrees in my bedroom, I have window open, a fan on. I am sleeping in there and not feeling like it's that hot. Do I just have an angry gro-egg, or is the gro-egg always right and IABU?

Here it is the little bastard.

I sold my gro-eggs (I had one for my son's room and one for the living room, just in case, you understand) because they were always sad with me. I still have a baby monitor that beeps furiously to let me know that it is "Too Hot"! in his bedroom most of the time.

Our gro egg was furious for the first few days of its life. It sat glowering at us from the corner of the room and we actually cheered when it chilled the f*ck out cooled down a bit. We only got the full smile very occasionally. I think it needs some Prozac tbh.
Today we just use it to check how efficient our heating is!

Mine is languishing on DS'S bedroom floor (unplugged) but if he wakes it makes a nice red nightlight. Luckily DS likes red and doesn't realise the redness means "THIS ROOM IS SO FUCKING HOT THE END OF THE WORLD IS NIGH"
I've never, ever had it at the optimum colour... in fact I didn't know it had a 'yellow' until I got it out for DC2.
