    That was cute! Didn't feel that way with my five kids when they were small.

    We had 5 (all single births) in 62 months. Thank God we were both very young at the start.

    I don't think anybody knows the real meaning of 'tired' until they have smalls. My first little lad wouldn't sleep at night for two and a half years. I counted.... and in that time I only had 21 nights of full sleep. Every other night was us up between four and eight times. We might have slept if I hadn't listened to the natural feeding councillor and given the poor hungry little mite a large bottle at night instead of my own exhausted supplies. Live and learn. We were like zombies. So dangerous to drive like that. Needless to say the others got bottles at night and slept.

    Luckily it was a long time ago and now they are three strapping teenagers. Now they don't sleep at night either.....

    In Norway, in summer, it never really gets dark. It must be very diifficult for these situations. I didn't know heat was much of a factor.

    Light-blocking curtains take care of the light, but this year was record-breakingly hot, and almost nobody have air condition in their homes. It was probably the heat that caused most of the bedtime problems. I know the feeling! There were nights when I had to sleep on my balcony to get away from the heat inside.

    Mumsy; maybe a slightly sweaty grapefruit note at the top?

    I don't know. I thought it quite shocking that the videographer didn't warn the idiot- "your baby has your gun!"or something. Of course, it probably was too late.

    Apparently it is real footage. This 'original' site below claims the father died 'instantly' as the bullet struck his heart. Angle of the gun at moment of discharge seems to indicate that as a distinct possibility:

    Default WARNING. If traveling to South Africa..

    I am an American traveling to Africa on a missions trip to an orphanage we have in Malawi, Africa. I had a 2 hr layover in Johannesburg, South Africa. In that short amount of time the luggage handlers managed to break into my locks as well as the locks of my team and steal all of our colognes and perfumes. That is what they are targeting. I had a large bottle of GIT and Aventus that was stolen. So if you are traveling and happen to be passing through the the Airports of South Africa, I would suggest you empty your bottles of the juice and replace it with hydrochloric acid. :P I am kidding. But they will allow to to carry on any liquid under 3oz as long as it is in a plastic bag.

    Cheers!
    I hope this helps somebody!

    I'm sorry to hear about these thefts which are, sadly, all too common.
    Drifting way off topic, but here's a very insightful and useful video on how to avoid being a victim of kleptomaniac baggage handlers in future:
