A licence to have kids?

Personally I don't have a problem with this handling technique, it's functional and requires only one hand. It has its drawbacks though, you can only use it for a short while and there's the very real danger of a massive up chuck.

But then I probably wouldn't qualify for a child raising licence if they ever brought one in!

Parental Licence, YES. Part of that should include an IQ with 3 figures before you can breed.

Parenting is a logistical and resource husbanding exercise, flushed with energy conservation and multitasking.

This wench has it down pat!

Actually -- in my experience, little ones of that age absolutely adore being hung upside down. Not for long, of course, but they giggle like hell when you do it.

I used to refer to it as "baby inversion". My kids still know it by that name, and think it's hilarious.

If that kid remembers, then the retirement home may be under a bridge.

Maybe do the same thing to her, but then you would need a crane to do it!

It's not so much child Flinthart says, kinds love this kind of shit...the danger is the geyser and gaseous effect it has on the kid.

EVERYONE would fail a parenting test if they brought one in. I know I would. Here's a curly one or you:

Q. What do you do when find yourself alone with your baby who has been screaming for eight hours solid, for no apparent reason?

a. lock yourself out of the house with a bottle of brandy and leave him to it

b. lock yourself in the bathroom, plug yourself into your ipod turned up to and wallow in a hot bath with a bottle of brandy and leave him to it

c. Read up on physics to ascertain the appropriate angle and trajectory necessary to dash the brat's head against a brick wall.

d. all of the above.
