"Get out! Mummy is ALLOWED to POO IN PRIVATE" seems to be my personal mantra at the moment. And whats nice about that is its memorable and good to teach all his friends at nursery. and the teacher. and to tell the doctor. And my work colleagues.

I know it's not really a quote,rather an essay,just try and pick the best bits

Today we went to the child health clinic. Due to a clash in the surgery the waiting room was stuffed to bursting with both mums and old ladies (apparently there was also an independent living clinic on). The room is set up so people sit round the outside in a square with a desk at one end and the loos at the other.
Anyway, went in, checked in sat down in a free seat opposite some old ladies. Waited thirty minutes. DD woke up, looked at me and opened her mouth to scream for food. Knowing her signs I quickly patted her, very discretely lay her on my lap and started feeding her.
I became aware of three old women opposite nudging each other and saying things like 'would you look at that' and tutting. I would have ignored them but I'd had a bad day so I smiled at them and asked if there was a problem.
"Do you really think that's appropriate dear", said the bravest of the lot.
"Um yes" I replied "she'll be very loud and unhappy if I don't feed her".
"Well the toilets are just over there". She replies, as if this is a solution to my embarassment.
"Thank you." I reply (taking strains not to sound sarcastic) "but if you remember, toilets are for defecating and urinating and we need to do neither. Besides we'd be in there for around 30 minutes and I don't know, would your bladder last that long?"
She starts to look very cross: "That's none of your business".
"No, you are right, and this is none of yours" I reply levelly indicating my DD who is ignoring all this and merrily suckling and farting.
They both start looking at each other aghast and then at the receptionist (who is trying to blend into the wallpaper in order not to be asked to adjudicate).
I really didn't mean to say it, I didn't...but it just slipped out....
"and if you don't mind, could you PLEASE stop rolling your eyes and close your mouths, you look like a trio of guppies!"
Cue rest of waiting room dissolving into fits of giggles.
One mum had to run to the loo (think her pelvic floor may not have been ready for this outburst).
Luckily we were next in so we didn't have to sit watching them studying their exceptionally swollen feet for much longer.

I don't quite dare link to Anna8888's comment about our ugly babies

oh dammit, yes I do

If you all love living in ugly slummy houses in ugly towns with ugly children and ugly husbands who speak bastardised English, all well and good.

Anchovy's OP on this thread :

"There is one particularly noxious one, involving, a handsome prince called, I think, Brian, who the princess decorates the castle for and he says "what wonderful taste you have". I refuse to read things to DD which relate to pleasing a man called Brian with your exquisite taste in interior decor. "

(or part thereof)

I nominate HunkerMonker's "Do you have synaesthesia?" question, to which the answer from PollyChrome was "Hunkermunker no I don't think they have it in tescos."

I'm liking the Brian thread - but am so confused by the Tutter one...

NormaStanleyFletcher · 14/03/2007 14:09

I like this one too

But infant formula is a valid alternative to breastfeeding. It's not an equivalent replacement, it's not better but it is an adequate alternative. Just like having a kitkat is a valid alternative snack to having a banana and Mumsnetting is a valid alternative activity to singing Row Row the Boat with your 13 month old baby. It's not as good but it's still an alternative.

I admit the tutter one really really needs to be read with the rest of the thread.

NormaStanleyFletcher · 14/03/2007 14:41

Abby - you really should read the whole thread - you will never look at Tutter in the same way again

AbbyMumsnet · 14/03/2007 14:41

I might have heard you
