Turned out nice again.

I do it the same as getting them in a onesie: take off their head and arms and slip them in feet first first.

Only 24 weeks to Christmas

MissAdventure Sat 14-Jul-18 23:10:44

Hasn't it just?

MissAdventure Sat 14-Jul-18 23:11:55

I usually cover them in lard, then shake them vigorously up and down until they slide in.

Happy holidays

Chewbacca Sat 14-Jul-18 23:15:32

Really MissA? But don't you find that they slip out if your hands; being greasy and all? Surely a bit of Castrol X would be a better lubricant? Ah well, each to their own! grin

MissAdventure Sat 14-Jul-18 23:17:14

Yes but Castrol doesn't do chips as nicely as lard. grin

I’m sorry, but nothing beats WD40.....

We use olive oil, however it does attract the wasps, oh well, needs must.

phoenix Sat 14-Jul-18 23:23:47

Lard may be ok for certain small people MissAdventure but I think you should not rule out extra virgin olive oil.

I appreciate that would rather open the door for a potential "oil wars", with Waitrose v artisan delis, then other factors coming in in favour of Lidl DeLuxe range, arguing that it is a quality product for the ordinary person (providing of course that the purchaser isNOT wearing a polyester football supporters shirt.

No flies on us..

phoenix Sat 14-Jul-18 23:34:01

Well, there might be some flies, depending on the choice of lubricant.

MiniMoon Sat 14-Jul-18 23:37:24

Perfectly reasonable question if in rather fractured English.
Sit child on lap. Put feet into snowsuit. Stand child on floor. Put arms into sleeves. Zip up. No need to dress on knee, unless of course he is a baby.

muffinthemoo Sat 14-Jul-18 23:50:06

Lie suit on sofa, unzip, place child in suit, zip up?

Am I doing it wrong?

Squiffy Sat 14-Jul-18 23:53:20

Pass the salt and vinegar, please.

Jangran99 Sun 15-Jul-18 00:10:27

I advise waiting for the snow. Perhaps by then you'll both have grown up a bit,certainly the baby will.

Chewbacca Sun 15-Jul-18 00:13:43

Oh please Jangran, don't let the baby grown up just yet! Then we'll have to discuss school uniforms, how much the cost and where to buy them from. And that will lead to trainers and which brand and whether to get them from Shoe Zone or not..........

Bellanonna Sun 15-Jul-18 00:16:05

Is it very cold where you are, hazyjane?

Jangran99 Sun 15-Jul-18 00:25:42

I'm checking all that out now Chewy so I'll be ready with all the right information.Don't you just love giving advice?

BlueBelle Sun 15-Jul-18 06:08:07

Is this the gay 12 year old make sure the snowsuit matches the Ugg boots

Jane10 Sun 15-Jul-18 07:37:45

You've all given me a good laugh which I needed. Thanks!

sodapop Sun 15-Jul-18 09:02:55

Don't forget to put the plimsolls on after the snow suit, get large size snow suit as a precaution against him sleeping with his girlfriend.😊

Luckygirl Sun 15-Jul-18 09:04:40

Are you sure he will be warm enough? grin
