    Okay need to vent.

    Why is it that when our Dh's arrive home from work with a headache or are tired they can go and have a sleep while 'mum' looks after the kids, gets dinner ready etc etc??? Do they not think that we are not tired from looking after the kiddies and the house all day?

    GgrRrrr

    Ooh Leanne, vent away....just don't move in with my DH....he slept until midday today cos he didn't finish until midnight last night

    Christine (please don't think i'm prying or poking), did you lose your mum recently? It is sad that Riley won't have that like the girls.

    About the driving thing. As you can imagine, we have a lot to deal with P Plate drivers. I was an emergency specialist before I joined the cops. I've seen more squashed, smashed, mutilated bodes than I care to remember. I hate writing tickets and save them for when a driver tries to kill me or someone else. Surprisingly (or probably not) most of the tickets I do write are for P Platers. Short of dragging them along to big smashes and saying "look what happens to heads/legs/arms just because the driver was being dumb/overconfident/undercautious/inexperienced! Look what it does to families. Look at their recovery (if there's one to be had)", I don't know that any rules will make a difference.
    I'm probably in the minority but I agree with the proposal. A licence is a privelege to be guarded and respected, not a right. A car is a weapon that can maim and kill. How hard are the road rules to follow???? It never gets them anywhere quicker. But when I learnt to drive things were just 'different'.
    I agree with the passenger proposal, at least then it minimises the lives potentially lost. Curfews are too hard to enforce and many don't work daylight hours. Currently in NSW there ARE restrictions on the type of car P Platers can drive, but there are so many easily obtained exemptions that the rule is stupid.
    Parents are also conrtibuting as most insurance companys won't insure hig powered and turbo cars for under 25s (a lot are now 30), but the kids want the car so the parents buy and insure them under their names, thus exaccerbating the problem.
    Sorry that was a bit of a rant, wasn't it....you should just hear the attitude they manage though....makes you want to smack em!

    OK, I have major lack of knowledge in the food department so here come the questions...

    Can someone tell me what finger foods they are offering their bubs??

    Who has given grated cheese?

    Can we give yoghurt yet? If so, is there a special baby yoghurt or do we just give a full cream type yoghurt? I suppose we avoid strawberry yoghurt too

    Cooper wont eat his vegies at night but gobbles down his farex mixed with pears or apples in the morning. Should I maybe try and feed him his vegies earlier in the day (lunchtime) and just give him a bottle at night?

    Sorry for my ignorance...

    * I've only given Shaun rusks and toast cut into fingers... I tried watermelon & banana but he just squishes it in his hands. Hang on... my DH gave him a pickled cucumber one night and he loved it... sucked all the guts out of it. Didn't eat the actual cucumber though.
    * Haven't given any cheese yet.
    * I just give him baby yoghurt... Heinz make banana, strawberry etc. (he loves it!!!)
    * Shaun is the same as Cooper - he whoofs down anything that is sweet... but is resistant to vegetables. I bought some Heinz and Organics jars with stuff like Lamb & chicken... but they are really strongly flavoured - and he is not keen on them.

    Just a suggestion... add some apples to Coopers vegies. I did that with Em and he gulped them down!! And then slowly lowered the amount and stopped adding it altogether. Now he eats almost anything!

    Will post more in the morning. Em decided last night to wake up at 1.30 and stay up till 5 :eek: and has been cranky all day because of it! And now its late and he's only just gone down and I'm tired...

    But its new thread time!!!
