I went up to the counter to buy DP a packet of crisps, turned around to see, DP feeding DD full fatted, full caffeined coke, COKE i tell ya, to my 2.9 yo DD. I could tell a few of the other mothers had noticed . I told him in my bestest matronly voice that i do not want DD to have that. But then on noticing the looks from other mothers, i had to follow it up know we are going out tonight, we are going to have to counter that with doublde dose of medised - i just coudlnt stop myself.

I did promptly remove the coke and replace it with a cup of water.......i mean, COKE??? That makes fruit shoots pale in comparison

PFB, perchance?

handlemecarefully · 06/06/2008 20:17

But crisps? - saturated fat and slithers of potato, not really that great either? Bit of an inconsistency there worrying about coke when buying crisps (my children have both - but on an occasional basis)

Your op did make me laugh though with the medised comment!

I'm sure a sip of coke won't scar her for life.

misdee · 06/06/2008 20:18

coke, mmmmmmmmm.

i had a glass today, had my 3year old going 'can i have some pleaseeeeeee, just a little sip pleeease'

BouncingTurtle · 06/06/2008 20:19

Besides, how do you know that those mums don't slip Fruit Shoots and Gregg's sausage rolls to their dcs when they think no-one is looking

lucyellensmum · 06/06/2008 20:21

HMC read it again I was getting the crisps for DP He does occasionally give her a swig of coke, im not that keen but its OK really. But loads? From a straw???? Made her clean her teeth for an hour tonight

Oh blimey. I would have dropped to the floor and done a commando crawl out of there. I'm convinced coke is a LOT worse than a packet of crisps!

tortoise · 06/06/2008 20:21

At least it was just a sip. Not like someone i know who gives her 16mth old coke in a bottle.

lucyellensmum · 06/06/2008 20:22

The thing is we ARE going out tonight, its our 16th anniversary and we havent been out for months - he is STILL doing bedtime

I know someone who puts her three year old to bed with TEA in a bottle!! Now im not commenting on whether or not tea is an appropriate drink for a LO, but WTF? Does she want him to be awake all night??? Cos that is what happens sometimes.....i don't bother to say anything. Its my SIL, and she is a great mum - but that really puzzles me.

Totally unreasonable - how would one cup hurt and you made DP look a total Twat.

southeastastra · 06/06/2008 20:26

i really want coke and crisps now

lucyellensmum · 06/06/2008 20:26

Did i??? luckily he had his sense of humour with him, would you like to borrow some [poking tongue out]

I don't let my dd (nearly 2) have it but she just has to see the Diet Coke logo anywhere - supermarket, billboard, wherever ? and she shouts 'Mummy's!' at the top of her voice. Not that I'm addicted to it or anything .

theSuburbanDryad · 06/06/2008 20:28

Sorry but I am totally with you on this LEM.

I think Coke is completely unsuitable for a 3 year old! And the crisps were for her dp, not her dd!

But then I have a PFB too!!

theSuburbanDryad · 06/06/2008 20:29

Flashman, get over yourself fss. If her dp hadn't given her the coke in the first place he wouldn't have looked like a twat (if indeed he did)


if anyone made him look like a twat then he made himself look like a twat!

Flashman · 06/06/2008 20:30

Hmm I must say he is a much better man than me then [tipping hat] and yes i think i really need to find a sense of humour for somewhere!!!

And whats bad about coke - ok sugar - but I would have thought a young kid could run off any sugar cals no problem? What about if diet coke??

allgonebellyup · 06/06/2008 20:31

god, your dp must have loved you undermining him in front of all those mums watching

theSuburbanDryad · 06/06/2008 20:32


caffiene??! And if we're talking diet coke, what about the aspartame etc?!

will you be giving your dc coke then when they arrive Flashman? To avoid not looking like a twat, obviously. (You do seem very concerned with your image, imo )

NotABanana · 06/06/2008 20:33

I thought it was DS feeding DD the coke.

frasersmummy · 06/06/2008 20:33

I think I must be a really bad mum

cos I really dont see coke as evil.

I see fizzy drinks as fine between lunch and tea

before lunch and after tea are fruit juice/milk only.

he is 3 dental probs, his height and weight match and hd goes to bed and sleeps at 7.45 every night

The way I see it if you make it forbidden fruit it just becomes something they gorge on when allowed

I read threads like these and things ooopps

madmuggle · 06/06/2008 20:33

Ye gods LEM, you're still consenting to leave the house with the man tonight? I hope he was suitably chastened!

misdee · 06/06/2008 20:34

oh dd3 didnt get any. she had her pure apple juice instead.

the coke is mine all mine bwhahahahahaaa.

HereComeTheGirls · 06/06/2008 20:37

My DD is 19 mos and loves bottles, she loves to carry my Diet Coke bottle around in her buggy...doesn't drink it, but what must people think!
