    Why would you walk into an almost empty cafe, see a couple with 3 kids 4 & under already eating. 2 of the kids are clearly over it and are starting to play up yet you CHOOSE to sit directly next to them rolling your eyes and grunting at us the entire time. Ugh! Sit somewhere else you horrible old cow!!!

    Dear Mum, Dad, Brother & Sister,

    Seriously over being made to feel guilty for the decisions DH and I have made and for the way we are raising our son.
    So you let your 3 kids sit in front of ipads and tv's all day that's your decision, but we won't do that, DS gets limited screen time and is outside or playing with blocks/books instead! And don't tell me i'm being to hard on him by saying he can sit and wait for us to finish our lunch before we get up and leave restaurant! Your kids clearly have no manners and are allowed to run amok.
    And Mum just because Brother is the only boy doesn't mean you can treat me like nothing and say that he is the favourite because he is the heir and will carry on the family name! i don't care about that, i just want my mum to support me and my families decisions and to understand where i am coming from sometimes.
    And no i won't be sending his kids anything for their birthday's until he and his wife start acknowedging my son and his birthday! no phone call from them means no phone call from me. Start realising i'm not the one in the wrong all the time would you!

    **** Vent Over ****

    It makes me laugh when people do this, they can clearly see that you have children with you but then sit and groan the whole time.
    Our DS is a major flirt so sits and flirts with the waitresses all the time or say's hello to random people, it amazes me how many don't answer him he is 3 he says hello to everyone!

    Ive asked daycare. He has some different food, but i also send morning & afternoon tea which he eats no problems. Pretty much the same timings as i try to keep it consistant.

    Now hes eating banana off the floor, so i guess we are just chucking all his food on the floor for him. Not looking forward to cleaning it up off the floor &;walls throughout the house though

    Honestly my Dd is usually shocking at dinner time, she will say "no" without even trying dinner or try and chuck it on the floor etc, it's not unusual for her to either have a cup of milk or a yoghurt for dinner, nothing substantial what so ever.

    She makes up for it by eating a huge breakfast because obviously she is hungry by then. I always prepare dinner, always offer it in different ways and sometimes she will eat certain bits and most times she will squish it everywhere. She is fine though, what she eats in a day makes up for her lack of interest in dinner. So your Ds would be making up for it on his day care days.

    I have no idea why Dd does what she does at dinner time, I've tried different solutions and they haven't worked so I just run with it, maybe she's not hungry, maybe she doesn't like how it's served etc, even as her mum I have honestly no idea. I'm sure one day she will eat a substantial dinner.

    Sorry for the long winded post, I just wanted to point out that all of our children have their ways of stressing us out by doing something that you don't expect but it should sort itself out in the end. Hugs.

    What high chair do they use? Maybe you could buy the same one?

    Or maybe it's just because you're breastfeeding and he sees his food and throwing it is his way of saying he doesn't want food, he just wants boob??

    @heartstringz feel free to pm me if you like we have loads of feeding difficulties! I could seriously just give DS milk if I was breast feeding. It is so mentally draining!

    Why do both of our front door keys decide they don't want to work?! Lucky our back door was unlocked, my key has been stuffed for ages and only works when it feels like it and now Dp can't get his key to work. Trying our neighbours spare key shortly and my stepbrothers key and if none work in going to have to get a new lock. Awesome. Just friggin awesome.

    Why is it so hard to get help to practice driving? I can go by myself (have my licence) but never seem to have the time to go with dh when ds is in a good mood, not due for a sleep etc. I cant park to save my life. I cant practice something i dont know how to do, driving lessons are a complete waste of money if you already have your licence in my experience. So im slowly getting the confidence to drive & yet i cant go anywhere cause i cant park.

    No-one can look after ds regularly (all shift workers), ds will not sleep out & although he mostly likes the car, hes a screamer when hes tired & i cant drive if hes screaming.

    Just get a lesson and ask them to practice parking with you for the whole hour!
