So far
2 plastic windows in playhouse in garden.
1 water blaster
Toy plastic grabber which i didnt mind.
My own children invite them to play in bedrooms so then own tthings broken.
Headphones for ipod
Balance bar for remote control helicopter which i have managed to repair .
I seem to be paying out for repairs or replace. Does anyone else find the same. With my own two boys i have 5 here and 2 are on autism spectrum and my youngest son who is 5 is being quite naughty at the moment and is getting over tired with the other children here.

I do find boys the worst for it though who seem to be very ruff although I have one little girl who is very ruff and has no respect for her surroundings. X

YES, had curtain pole pulled off wall one day. Drives me insane, another reason to never ever ever ever have schoolies again after this month is over

Yes! Why?
Are we just used to littlies? The schoolies seems so big and like giant tornado kids!

I have a laptop that mindees can use and it has frozen and I need to reset it to factory's. settings I cannot remember how to do it and no one will admit that they have done something and currys/pc world are going to charge £50 to sort it out!!!!

It always happens when we are having a stay at home day either due to weather or that I have 7 children in total so cannot use the car.

Ummm yes...and why is it that they all seem to forget the simplest of rules too? I had two biggies here today and had to tell them numerous amounts of times to not throw the sand and not to drink the water from the water tray...grrrrr...
