    Also ashamed to love the cold my newborn has as it gives me lots of juicy boogers to pick out of her nose. Some go on for inches I swear! Love how babies can't bat your hand away!

    Im not the only one that loves 'picking' at their kids right!? Must be monkey heritage coming through :/
    I'm with you on this one. Love picking and squeezing.

    OMG... I thought it was just my DS who was obsessed with watching those blardy kinder surprise videos. I never knew how he found them either as I am pretty relaxed when it comes to supervising his iPad time (ie. hardly supervise at all because I'm on my iPhone instead). The voice of one of the female narrators drives me a bit mental. What type of adult actually spends their time unwrapping kinder surprises and videoing them? I don't get it. But judging from the view count they're onto a winning formula.

    The other day DS asked my Mum for some 'candy' (said in a real American accent) and Mum shot me a strange look as if to say 'WTF... you taught him the word candy?!' Pretty sure he learnt it from a kinder surprise YouTube video.

    Omg DS1 is obsessed with those stupid videos! They sh!t me! He watches every night before bed for like 30 minutes! Argg!

    I totally love the washing pics lol I feel so much better knowing my massive piles of washed clothes are just sitting around for weeks lol

    And yep definitely guilty of bribing here!

    I'm also a swearer around DS 😯 I honestly can't help myself it's a terrible habit,

    Hahahaha I just read this after my post!!

    I think the exact same thing! What adults seriously get out of those kinder surprised is beyond me. Most of the time the toys inside the egg are so cr@p you end up chucking in the bin the next day. What freaks hey.

    And as for the candy thing, DS1 also said it today and I was like oh dear.. Either he watches too much nick jnr or Disney jnr or too much of those stupid kinder surprise videos!

    Omg is her name DisneyCollector?? She also does unpacking of toys that DS also finds. Her voice makes me want to stab myself in the eyeballs!!! But it keeps him busy while I have a coffee in peace... So I just turn it down real low :P

    So glad my son isn't the only kinder surprise freak.

    This is so me!

    We eat plain dinners way too often (sandwiches etc)

    We don't go to parks anywhere near enough, there's none within walking distance

    Tv is on pretty much 24/7, not always abc but its on.

    Dd is never bathed when DP is away, she just showers with me.

    I really want to get back to work as soon as I can, I love DD but I miss working

    We stay in our pjs at least once a week!

    I'm Carlton & DF is Essendon. When DS was a baby someone asked DF 'How are you going to react if it turns out that he's gay?'

    DF replied 'As long as he doesn't barrack for Collingwood.'

    We were getting ready to watch the Anzac Day match this year & DS suddenly looks at the TV and yells 'Go the Pies!' DF offered him $20 to choose another team but DS took the money & just pretended to pick another team.
