CM Club - Charges for meal for a BABY.............

I charge £1.50 for an evening meal (all other meals/snacks are free) but looks like I'm going to be providing for my 9 month old mindee - how much do you think is fair to charge? Doesn't seem right having the same charge as the bigger ones.

This time so you can actually read it Argggggggggggggggggggggggg Bloody Bloody typing

Hi LT I charge the same, cos although it does not cost as much to buy, I do find that 'baby' food takes more to prepare, my older children tend to have what we have but babies I have to cook seperatly (cant really give a baby curry and such, ad for young babies it needs to be pureed as well

Shosh - Have you been drinking or are you going to blame your new keyboard on this typing.

I would keep the charges the same also.


Shoshable · 17/09/2007 19:41

ML, I dont know why it does it, I bought a new keyboard cos I thought it was that and it STILL does it, not every time just once in a while really really pissed off now

And why wont anybody believe me I DONT DRINK HONEST

Come on shosh, tell the truth - I saw the phone with BIG numbers on today, I think you need a keyboard the same!!!!!! (it's C btw, incase you don't twig!)


islandofsodor · 17/09/2007 20:32

Is it a wireless keyboard? Mine is hopelss and misses letters out all over the place.


Shoshable · 17/09/2007 20:34

saltire · 17/09/2007 20:35

Looks like Shosh has been drinking again. Or she's been getting typing lessons off Cod!


Shoshable · 17/09/2007 20:40

or have a supermarket level tantrum.


london11 · 17/09/2007 20:57

ok, ok you don't drink! Don't cry, it's not all bad. Maybe you should get your eyes tested though? old age can be a funny thing


saltire · 17/09/2007 21:00

It's that bloody acupnucture, it's done more than take the pain away, it's taken your typing skills away as well


PinkChick · 17/09/2007 21:01

Shoshable · 17/09/2007 21:02

I never had any tyng skills

London I will give you OLD AGE, just cos your younger than DS,

(thats why I work with her, she does all the physical)

PMSL at Shosha's typing, I see the new keyboard has been a great investment!!!

Seriously though, thanks for the quick replies. I'm not prepared to cook seperate food for baby, mum wants me to just blend what I give the kids atm (they give curry etc at home anyway although i don't do curry so it doesn't matter). I just have no time to be cooking something different for her as I have no room to store meals so cook them daily rather than batch cooking. I find everything hard to fit in as it is so I'm not adding to my chores!

Will have a chat with mum later and see what she thinks.
