Welcome to The Lounge! Grab a drink, take a seat and set yourself up for some story telling. This week the theme is ‘things that make you go hmmmm‘. If you’ve already written about this before then don’t worry we accept vintage posts too!
I’m going a little bit further with the hmmm feeling and going straight to full on WTF and sharing things that made me want to stop the world and get off. These are all from this week too!
This post from Lana of Sharpest Pencil about not really loving her Thermomix and the reaction to it. The hardcore owners of a thermomix didn’t really do themselves any favours by calling Lana names, insinuating that she is scammer (still scratching my head how she managed to do that) and a clickbait title. To be completely honest I think that the overreaction by some people probably did a lot more damage to the thermomix reputation than someone admitting they don’t love theirs.
This bunch of child abuse masquerading as ‘health care’ that I saw on a friends timeline. Those ‘drops’ they are talking about? They are bleach, which is giving orally or through an enema. These crackpots believe that they are curing their child from Austism by removing the stomach and intestinal lining. There are just not enough words to describe what I think should happen to these people.
This post about child care centres who have poo buckets. The woman who prompted the story was presenting with a bag of poo (well not just poo but a log in a pair of undies) after it had been sitting in a bucket for 3 days. No way in hell would that little parcel have made it into our car. Apparently it is against health regulations to clean the underwear in a sink, which is fair enough but for goodness sake at least put the log in the toilet. Or if you are a parent, just tell your childcare that any undies with poo on them can go straight in the bin!
This one was more of a I can’t believe people are still being shits about this. I had a big old rant on my Facebook Page about our experience with sleep and medication to stimulate sleep. The amount of people who believe that sleep is a discipline issue is staggering. No parent with a sleep dodger is ‘letting’ anything happen. You aren’t a bad or a good parent because of how your child sleeps. I’m going to leave it there before I start on another rant!
What has been making you shake your head this week?
Does your kids childcare send bags of poo home?
