    I let DS2 eat coco pops for breakfast every day :-/ it's coco pops or he won't eat! Something has got to be better than nothing right?

    DS1 will have sultana bran, oats, muesli, weet-bix. But ds2 will only eat coco pops!

    Yeah as he has a bath every night and he is at school all day. Part of the reason was that we didnt get home til a little after 6pm and i was tired from being at class all day and running around to get a house key as i lost mine to dealing with non stop calls from my nana. Now up studying still but having a little break. Should go to bed though as been doing it for almost 2hrs and expecting coop to wake uo shortly and dont want him to wake emma so will have to race there before he wakes her like last night.

    I use that to justify everytime i feed myself junk throughout the day...at least *i'm* eating (the kids are eating fruit...no idea why that's too hard for me ).

    ooooh, todays fail - i stated/semi-yelled out 'stop making so much noise, its time to sleep' - only to go into his room and discover that the six year old was crying cause he missed his dad (admittedly, something that kinda frustrates me-whole massive backstory. But i do feel bad for thinking he was playing with his toys in bed...which he obviously wasn't).

    And a parenting fail that i seem to be coming out with a lot lately is 'there's no more food until you eat the cereal on the floor' then again...yesterday morning the toddler lay down on her stomach on the floor to eat the soggy cherrios she'd thrown earlier Lesson well learnt

    Oh wow I have a lot I'm a single mum and I have taken to mostly doing whatever is easiest and gets us through the day, dd1 often has a bath every second day just because of the drama and tantrums involved, I have at times given her way too much chocolate as bribery or just to keep her quiet while her sister is sleeping and I have taken to putting tomato sauce on her dinner every night just to get her to eat!

    Baby was eating her weetbix off the floor as I hadn't got around to cleaning it up after breakfast. I have no idea why food is so much more appealing when it's been on the floor.

    I was baby sitting a friends daughter, and she kept asking for junk food, but I had made sandwiches, after debating with this five year old for over an hour about how she should finish her meal and she could have a cupcake after, I turned to her and said "do you really need to eat anymore crap today" she automatically started crying and told me she didn't want to eat poo. I didnt think a five year old would know what crap was..... Woops


    Waiting on the arrival of William
