Nice stuff battery. I got a b*tchin die cast Adam west batmobile and a groot boppit.

I love having a fiance who doesn't put up with my nerdiness but helps me indulge in it :)

Nice. Yeah, my wife is like that now. Me being into video games used to get on her nerves but now she accepts it. Thing is, I could have a drinking problem, a drug problem, always out on the town with my mates, have a project car that always needs money, be into a dangerous sport like Motocross etc. But no. I play video games. After making sure the house is spotless. And it's cheaper week to week than her wine and fancy cheese too haha. So she now accepts it and encourages it. Thing that cracks me up, when she finds a game she likes, she is ten times worse than me anyway haha.

 

My wife doesn't like me "wasting time" or money on games, hates my project car/bike, hates the Motorcross bike, thinks paintball is a waste of money & hates the space the pool table takes up
Admittedly I do like alot of things that cost money, take time & take up alot of space but hey I likes them... She does tolerate them tho so that's something it just leaves me doing things on the frugal side is all

$100? Mate my wife's is $280 lol.

My wife doesn't like games, or cars but does tolerate them so that's at least nice.
But when I buy something for the cars she's like really,did you need them. I dare not ask if she needs her hair and nails done or new clothes

I buy whatever I want and my wife never complains. She doesn't take any interest in our finances. As long as her credit card works, she doesn't care.

I can't tell if that's a good or bad thing.

Kids made me some cards for Father's Day. Couldn't be more proud :D

Playing with the laser pointer for the cat my daughter decides she also wants to catch the light which is cute in itself but moreso is that she see's it on her hand & will lift her hand to show you only to then find it on her foot or dress or whatever her hand was on when she "caught it"
She doesn't quite get the way focused light works & it's funny & cute all in one especially the way she finds it amusing

 

Need to get balloons now so they can find amusement in popping them with light

Seeing my 7 year old on the invader and the rollercoaster at rainbows end yesterday made me think jeez I don't think I would have tried that when I was the same age.

Yup, I was horrified the time I went to change baby’s nappy and the poop had literally exploded all the way up her back and into her hair. Total Poonami.

WOW I never had that. Plenty up the back but never to hair.

Thankfully it didn't reach his head, but it went all over his bounce chair too. thankfully we can take the seat part off and wash it.

:lol: wow guess I can count myself lucky to have never experienced that!  That's when you just take the baby outside and hose it off, right? ;)

Combination I guess of luck, 100% formula fed and cloth nappies (fit a lot tighter across the back and legs)

Yeah that was a bad one, we've had one in the car too, took a couple of days of repeat cleaning til the smell calmed down. Im still shocked at how much they can produce.

My son is teething and has been waking up over the last week or so screaming/crying in pain. I feel terrible for him. Last night was especially bad. We usually just put some bonjela on his gums/teeth and that settles him. Would it be good to wake him at the same time (say 1am) and apply the bonjela, or should we just wait until he wakes up (usually between 1 and 5am) crying?

we would just put it on when putting him to bed and then see how it goes, I wouldn't want to wake him if he was going to sleep through

they get over it pretty quick, only a few days
