This "extra hour in bed" lark is totally wasted on anyone with kids.

I bet you feel double cheated when the clocks go forward!

Do children really keep people awake that much?

Depends on the kid. Right now it's not too bad as they both sleep from 8.30pm to 6.30am. However my oldest probably slept through all night no more than 50 times in the first 4 years.

Its also annoying if you show up at the gym an hour early and wonder why no one is there, go home, start working and then notice the computer clock is different than the kitchen...

I thought I was late for work this morning.

Actually I got there 55 minutes early. Doh!

Hate to brag but my boys have been great sleepers.
Of course, being a deep sleeper and a great actor has meant that Mrs. BGH is the one who truly suffers.

My kid goes to bed at 7:30pm and wakes up just after 8:00am. Done this everynight for well over a year.

Up until the age of 6 weeks he used to wake up once for a feed.

We've got it SOOOOO easy!

Not getting up at 8am, you don't.

Just wait. You'll still be doing potty training when he's 14.

We're going to start in a few weeks.

We got rid of his dummy when he was 6 weeks and he finished his bottle at 11 months. We prefer to start early :D

Typical new dad syndrome. He thinks his kid is some kind of super genius rising above all our poor slobs. Genetics says otherwise though.

Yeah, but someone's got to offer telephone support to PC newbies.

I can't really call it work, I do it anyway as a hobby... getting paid is a bonus.

Too much pressure on toilet training too early, and he'll spend the rest of his life making lists.

I found out recently that my mother breastfed me and my brother till we were 2, although phasing out towards the end. I am quite disturbed by that, I thought you had to stop at about 6 months (not that I know shit about babies except they make too much noise) what the hell was she thinking? :nervous: :hmm:

Breastfeeding for the first year is reccommended

Some primitive tribes use breastfeeding as a contraceptive method, and thus will regularly breastfeed until age 5 or so.

How are five year olds going to get pregnant and how does breast feeding stop them?

It's hard to fuck while mommy's tit is attached to your lips.

Plus the record for the youngest mother is either 7 or 8 years old. Can't remember which.

Funko

Right, so what the hell are you really talking about?

KrazyHorse@home

I mean that the breastfeeding prevents the mother from conceiving again. Some sort of hormonal thing. Not 100%, but effective enough to have been seized upon as a method of birth control.

Breastfeeding, last time I looked it up, is reccommended up to 12 months. Unfortunately the missus contracted mastytis (sp?) so it was impossible to carry on.

Apparentely in a recent study babies that are breastfed develop faster although I think Benjamin's an exception to the rule as he's the size of a 2.5 year old in height and size 7 feet and he's only 18 months.

He's seriously gonna be able kick my arse when he's 13 and 6' 7"... not good!

Your kid will be a spectacular failure. He'll make me look like a winner.

MattHiggs
01-11-2005, 13:53:10
I doubt it, he's already achieved more than you ever can do.

Venom
01-11-2005, 13:55:43
Him being your son, somehow, I doubt that.

MattHiggs
01-11-2005, 14:10:20
I'm sure on his list of achievements when he's 30 #1 won't be 'a bonus' followed by 'level blahblah and some loot in swg'

He'll be lucky to achieve that much by 40.

Not played AO since Ben was born - play WoW maybe once a week for an hour or two. You don't get much spare time when you have kids - especially if you play a lot football and have a new house to decorate.

At least he's got a great chance. Your parent's must either be dead or deeply retarded for the way you're turning out. :lol:

You're less than me. Your son has no chance, speaking of retarded parents.

what about some update pics of the Ben master.
we didn't get any pics since your walkabout wizzz the misses just before your job change

Nah, I like all your assumptions about me and the way it makes you swagger around the board like you've got 2 pound balls. It's funny.
