    Sometimes for "family bonding TV time," we watch An Idiot Abroad. DD LOVES it and thinks Karl Pilkington is hilarious (he is - but it's not exactly a kid's show).

    She's watched so much Futurama that she can see about 2 seconds of the start of an episode and know which one it is and whether she likes it or not.

    Some weeks I put her in after school care of day I'm not working... just so I can do whatever I want all day long, and not have to be at school by 2.30 to pick her up.

    She currently has sheer pink Shellac on her nails. She's 8. (She's also got her own professional cleanser, day cream and night cream... but people tend to think that's less "OMG SEXUALISING!" than shellac).

    If she asks what a swear word means... I tell her. She's heard them all... we swear all the time (she's not allowed to... but she hears us).

    I am hopeless at playing with my kids. I find it boring and difficult to relate at this age (5&3) the baby is easy to play with. Once they start school, I find I can interact better.

    To compensate for this, I take my kids out everyday morning and afternoon to the park, playground, play centre, catch up with friends etc. so I don't feel guilty about them entertaining themselves for a lot of the time we are home while I cook, clean etc.

    Oh yes I swear a lot. My son who is 2 can use the f word correctly and in context. His sisters taught him, as well as many others. When we're out and he says it I pretend he said "truck" but I don't think anyone believes me.

    Leave DS in the car to pay for fuel

    We eat takeaway once a week

    The tv is always on kids channels so he can watch whenever he feels like it.

    I've put him in the cot just to have a shower. When I came out he was bawling.

    Eta: one of DS first 10 words was chippies

    I let my dd watch peppa pig and play games on my phone in bed next to me in the morning so I can sleep in longer.

    I bribe her with chocolate and chuppa chups

    She watches tv while she eats for most meals

    XD

    Similar to Sonja,
    When we go over a bump in the car 2yo DS says "Oh Cheesus" and when playing with his toy cars the other day driving them over train tracks "Cheesus!"
    I think it's hilarious and have to stifle my laughter every time.

    I let DS have tomato sauce with most dinners, regardless of what it is because I know he will eat it. We just had apricot chicken with steamed rice and broccoli- yep sauce on his! I figure the sugar is discounted by him actually eating his dinner. I sometimes feed him (2.5) so that he will eat the bits of his meal I want him to. If he had his way, he'd have eaten plain rice with sauce for tea. Pretty much every Saturday and Sunday I wake up, take him to the toilet, make him some toast and put Monsters Inc on for him. Gives me an extra hour in bed.

    I was feeling pretty crap about my parenting after DS screamed his way thru the supermarket today. Of course we ran into a friend whose children are always quiet and calm :/

    Now I feel pretty normal again, thanks everyone.

    I bribe DS with tiny teddies.

    TV always on.

    DS (2) is in control of YouTube

    DD (1) misses out a lot cos I'm always chasing DS or mentally recovering from managing his behaviour.
