Re: Massive Spiders!

12cm!!
I love the way the article says they can give you a nip if you pick them up - what mad person is going to pick up a 12cm long spider!

Re: Massive Spiders!

I don't think I've seen one all year which means I'm due one of those massive dark brown ones with the really fat bodies. Yuk. It's these false widow spiders I'm more concerned about though. I read an article saying there are lots in the UK and their bites can lead to amputation! Consequently (and I...

Processed Meat

http://news.sky.com/story/1576118/sausage-cancer-threat-highlighted-by-experts Ok I know I have fussy kids but I have just (after years of trying) got both my kids to eat ham sandwiches. And sausage and mash is one of our "sure" meals. We don't eat either more than once a week but I'm still concerne...

Re: Bedwetting

Hi My daughter had never been dry by the age of 7. Firstly the enurisis nurse sent her for a bladder scan which was fine. Then she put her on Desmomelts which (I think) simulate the hormone that stops the need to wee at night time. This worked a bit but only reducing a full pull-up to a half full on...

Re: Sexual photos

I think you have to think of your children here. It doesn't sound a healthy environment for them. Children mimic behaviour and I would be very concerned that they could begin to think that belittling someone is normal.
It also sounds like you are doing most of the hard work anyway.

Best of luck X

Bendy Pencils

Hi Maybe as the term is now over I have nothing else to worry about but these products are really winding me up: https://www.tinc.uk.com/products/bendy-pencil-pink/ We have had 3 now - one bought and 2 from parties. None of these have been able to be sharpened without the aid of a very sharp knife. ...

Re: School Smock Embroidery?

www.mynametags.com do sticky labels which a fab. You can personalise the pattern, font and choose an icon (can you tell I have a stationary fetish...) and the kids love choosing them. Very occasionally the washing machine will spit one out but they are surprisingly robust, and the sticker sheet seem...

Art Classes for 8 year old

Hi

Can anyone recommend any drawing classes for 8 year olds?

A friend told me about Lavender Leonarndos and it looks great but a bit too expensive at £25 a class.

Thanks

Re: Would you dare give another parent in the street advice?

I thought about this post just now on the way back from taking my kids to school. There was a 10 year old (at a guess) walking along with her mum and the girl was carrying the new born baby (not very expertly) with the mum wheeling the buggy behind. One trip and that baby was in all sorts of trouble...

Re: Husband wants to go on holiday on his own

Can I give "seriously?" a thumbs up please. I've been reading all these excellent comments (and agreeing with all the ones who think his proposition is outrageous) and it hadn't occurred to me about the sad loser angle. You're right, he will look like a total tw*t backpacking with a shaggy beard on ...

Re: Worries about creepy sleepover family

It depends if your daughter has noticed anything so far. My kids are totally oblivious to anything that isn't in "their world". I've noticed people swearing near them and they just don't hear it. If you warn her then she might start thinking it's more interesting than you'd like. But I agree that yo...

Re: Worries about creepy sleepover family

Why do you have to lie to the mum? I think you have a perfectly good reason(s) and if she doesn't understand your concerns I wouldn't care what she thought! Maybe she doesn't realise the extent of it and you'd be doing her a favour. Obviously I realise it's not easy saying it - I find email really u...

Re: Little Gym? Feedback pls

Hi Pod My twins who are now 8 went to LG from about 3-7 I would say. They really enjoyed it and it was a welcome change from Tumbletots as it had slightly less equipment-based activities and you can be lazy and sit and watch... (young twins at TT was a nightmare). It is expensive but, although they ...
