People flock daily to popular parenting forums to seek tips, advice and opinions on matters about life and their precious offspring – it’s popular stuff! If babies and toddlers used them, however, we might find them wrestling some particularly meaty issues… Following on from the original Totsnet, this Am I Being […]

Following on from the last Totsnet, some other babies and toddlers take their turn at rants and reassurance from their peers about their parental totsnet smallwoes…

I’m still quivering with rage about this but will try and explain without getting too upset by the flashbacks. So I was given a banana today and – oh God I can barely bring myself to say it… my mum peeled back the skin 1/2 a centimetre further than I wanted her to… I KNOW! I don’t know how it all went so terribly wrong as she seemed to be acting so cautiously at first (this isn’t the first time we’ve had this issue). But then I screamed in anger as she hadn’t peeled it back enough –

Totsnet: Teddy Bear Boundaries

totsnet smallTo be suspicious of my teddy?

Posted by ToyStory4

Like many of you I’m sure, I have a good friend, who happens to be a teddy bear. I’ll call him Steve, for the purposes of identify protection. Steve and I joined the family at the same time, just over a year ago, so we’re pretty close. He doesn’t say a lot – well anything actually – but he is good company and I’ve always felt I can trust him. Lately though, I’ve noticed a few things amiss and it’s making me question his loyalty. Firstly, last week before bed I put him on the sofa, but when I woke up in the morning, he was in the toy box, helping himself to my cars. I’d been led to believe (by him I might add) that he couldn’t move on his own, so he’s lied to me for starters, and I’ve been carrying him around like a chump all this time, yet he’s never offered to return the favour.

Totsnet: The Nappy Change Saga

I’m having the same issue time and again with my folks – I just can’t seem to get through to them 🙁 They keep insisting on a nappy change when I’m in the middle of something crucial, about one hundred or six times a day. I wonder how they would feel being frogmarched to a mat on the floor and stripped off while they were in the middle of watching Breaking Bad? I’m quite sure they’d make more than a mild protestation. Yet when I’m engrossed in an important Mega Bloks project, I’m just expected to roll over like an obedient puppy and wait to be tickled? I don’t think so, parents.

About my yellow cup?
Posted by TracyBeaker
I have a yellow beaker that I have been using for about a year now. My parents fill it with water, they give it to me, I drink it. All very easy. However, I have recently decided that on Tuesday afternoons, every other Friday and any time it rains, I do NOT want to use the yellow beaker. In fact, I don’t even want to see it. I find it deeply troubling to have it in my view at all and if it’s used as a means of offering thirst relief, I have no choice but to scream, stamp my feet and yell incomprehensible words for several minutes, until…
