Over the years we get these little ‘over the tea cups’ sort of incidents.
Come on folks fess up.
What was that funny incident that made every one laugh or cry?
I was a brand new dad and proud as punch visited my wife in the maternity ward.
My new son was still in the nursery and one very eager dad went to see his new son in the large room full of babies.
There were some 10 small cots there and all full of babies ether sleeping or crying.
The nurse was busy for the moment and while I waited I saw this extra large baby boy lying on his tummy and with a tiny hand propped under his chin was looking around as he surveyed the room and the commotion.
I wondered how such an advanced we boy with the strength to prop his head up and look around was doing amongst the day old babies.
Eventually the nurse asked me the name of the wee baby that was mine and pointed to the very boy who was looking around the room.
Whew 11.2 pounds and impatient to get out of the place#79029rosie November 14, 2006 at 3:03 pm
He sure had a good start in life piersdad.
I was looking after 2 nephews several years ago. We were about to go to a school fair and I was putting makeup on while being watched by said nephews. Master 4 asked what I was doing. “Putting makeup on”, I replied.
“What are you doing that for”? asked Master 7.
“To make myself more beautiful”, I answered recklessly.
Master 7 studied me for a few moments…then “Well it hasn’t” he informed me.#79030bobbityMemberMember since: September 14, 2006

Aren’t kids gems Rosie?
Piersdad, I did my nurse training many years ago and we had to do some obstetrics as well. I saw quite a few large babies including a 12.5 pounder that came from a diminuitive mom. We felt silly treating them like newborns sometimes and were tempted to put them on a rug on the floor for a good kick…but of course no matter what their size they were still newbies.
I love all GUppies

During the late 70s I took my wife and kids, aged 1 and a half, 4, 6 to Rotorua to the mudpools/thermal area. After we came out we decided to splash out and have lunch at a hotel nearby. They had tables outside in a courtyard and we sat down. A rather prim waitress came out and laid a cloth on the table, then she proceeded to set out the plates and cutlery etc. As she placed the dishes on the table, my son, 6, wide eyed, burst out in amazement, “Do we eat of PLATES here?”, as if he’d never come across them before. Even the waitress cracked up. From the mouths of babes etc#79034chris214BlockedMember since: December 9, 2006

That reminds me of a time years ago when our kids were 18 months and 5 months old. We went to see my mother-in-law who worked in one of the inner city hotels in Christchurch. She insisted we stayed for lunch, so a high chair was found for our 18 month old son and we all sat down to wait for lunch. Our son grabbed hold of a paper serviette waved it around and said in a loud voice ‘ Look Mum toilet paper!’ much to the amusement of other diners.#79037BazzaMemberMember since: May 18, 2007

Believe it or not but It’s true. A friend of mine retired off a farm and shifted closer to town. Bought a 14ft boat which the put on an empty section next door. he would back up to the boat and load it up etc. The boat ramp was only 300 meters from home. 1st day out fishing and lunchtime, wheres the lunch and coffee, oop’s. Next time they got out there to fish, ooop’s, no bait. The 3rd time he backed up to the boat and they went through a checklist, Rods, bait, lunch, etc. etc. all accounted for and off they drove. Pulled up at the boat ramp and the wife got out to help him back down to the water and she said, "Wheres the boat" He had forgot to hook it up to the car. Ooop’s, so sad. Cheers Bazza.
