    My DS2 was having a nap in his cot so I got DS1 to lay down in my bed with me for a rest (he's sick and over tired) well I fell asleep and he didn't. He told me he was hungry and I remember mumbling about a banana and pretzels. Was great when I woke up he'd given himself lunch and a drink and was happily playing

    It is definitely the talking.

    I've told DP I know I'm such a terrible mother... other mothers seem to relish all this from their kids, whereas I just think, "OMG WILL YOU EVER SHUT UP?!" and want to go hide in hte toilet just to make it stop. lol.

    I can handle noise... and even toddlers waffling crap all day... but when my daughter is constantly talking about demands an answer (she never did as a toddler), and gets cranky if she thinks I'm not paying her full attention (usually because I'm doing something else)... well, yeah that's when I do a "Chanel, could you please go away for a bit!" lol.

    I ignore Ds when I know he is 'pkaying with' (aka scaring the cr@p out of) our bunny, my theory was that the bunny can ( and does) go to the other end of the cage and Ds can't get in cos its a small cage ...

    Tonight I found Ds in the cage :/

    Great thread, some good ideas

    iPhone is the number one distracting device here, Hi-5 clips

    Or popping him in the hair chair and sprinkling the tray with plain rice bubbles. Grapes in the snack catcher work well but he has gotten really fast at eating them now.

    Not so much bad parenting but when I do the food shop I grab a continental cucumber (the ones wrapped in plastic) give it to DS and he gnaws on it the whole way through the shops. Looks quite funny as they are about a foot long sometimes. (they are priced per cucumber, not per kilo so we're not stealing!!!)

    Unfortunately DS has no interest in TV yet

    Oooh many things

    I give them junk food, and make them sit infront of the TV
    Or give them a bowl of frozen peas, and make them sit infront of the TV
    If I really need a break, I will encourage them to play video games

    I once took both mine to the local hospital creche and lied about having an appointment, then went upstairs for an hour to the coffee shop for some peace and quiet.
