    They are nice people but their house is grose!!!
    They have alot of animals,the dogs I don't mind but they have a parrot that crawls everywhere and poops all over the sofa and dnt clean it up so I dnt even sit he on the sofa.
    Also they have a owl which gets fed dead baby chicks I think and they are boiled in a pan and OH brother picks them up with bare hands and I always have to tell him wash your hands before you hold katelyn sometimes I have to tell him twice.
    and then sometimes when I feed katelyn I ask OH to get me a bib and his mum is just like oh it dnt matter she's fine she's allowed to get messy!!
    SO she's my daughter and I like to use one.
    And last thing is their cats and the parrot walk all across the worktops and they dnt wipe it down when they cook and then they ask if katelyn wants some veg n mash.
    Do I seem abit dramatic or would this annoy you too??

    No I'm not either I only like dogs. But they have all sorts snakes,lizards,chickens,rabbits,birds,owl,5 dogs 2 cats lol
    I'm just not keen on houses filled with animals,especially if it ain't clean.

    I dont like the idea either, especially with the LO around.
    That's a lot of animals! Plus I dont trust animals, so I wouldn't take my LO round, but i'm stubborn lol :flower:

    Id be reluctant to go round in those circumstances.

    You need to be careful with animals and hygiene with babies and especially animal poo

    Can they come to you instead?

    No they dnt like to travel much. they dnt like leaving all the pets.
    Plus OH's dad is 76 years old so he dnt drive much.

    I lived there for the first 6 months of my pregnancy and i hated it.
    They go away at the weekends to their caravan site and when they used to go i would go wilkos and buy loads of cleaning stuff and clean the whole house for about 4 hours lol. i refused to stay there with OH while the house was in a state.
    especialy the kitchen and bathroom its just horrible... when i go there i dnt even sit on the toilet seat haha!!
    i dnt tell OH cuz i dnt want to upset him.
    even when i leave their house i feel dirty and want a bath !

    being completely honest here, if i was in ur situation i wouldnt go there again until they cleaned, or just tell them to come to mine. do they not realise how DANGEROUS that is??? cat walks through its poop, walks on counter, gets on food, into the baba... bam. toxoplasmosis.

    I'm not the tidiest person but clean kitchens and bathrooms are a must for me! And there's no way I'd offer food to my LO that was cooked/prepared on an unwashed surface! I wouldn't be able to keep my mouth shut I'd def be telling OH to tell them to sort it out! :)

    I wouldnt let my child go there, no way, she could get ill and you would never forgive yourself. What is with some people, I dont understand why people are so unhygenic.

    I don't blame you in the slightest!!! My mum basically lives in a showhouse and this is how I have been brought up, now I am not nearly as bad as my mum aka the bleach queen but my house is very clean but lived in during the day (I must admit I love 7pm when kids go to bed and I can tidy up!!)

    I am no enviromental health officer but I do know that animal shit and children do not mix!! Correct me if I am wrong but don't reptiles carry dangerous toxins around also?

    Maybe just tell them the health issues here and how sensitive babies are to these toxins, etc?
