Monday Musings

I’m back with day 2 of #BEDM and today’s prompt is share an opinion-based post. Hmm, well, as much as I like to be opinionated, I try to keep controversy off the blog (for now anyway 😆 ) so instead, I’m sharing a tongue in cheek list of things that I’ve learned in recent times; as a parent and well…. as a human being.

  • No matter how much fun you have with your kids on a day out, one will always whine all the way home.
  • ‘Netflix and chill’ DOES NOT MEAN ‘Netflix and chill’!
  • Fun fairs make you spend almost a weeks grocery money on everything that will make your children puke.
  • It is possible to love and freaking despise LEGO at the same time.
  • I can make sh*t disappear by the time I count to 5. iPads, phones, wi-fi connections….
  • There is no such thing as ‘too many eyeshadows’…or nail polishes, make up brushes, blushers, shoes….things…..
  • I’m a great judge of character, and so is Karma.
  • Wine o’clock should be written into my daily routine.
  • It is possible to become widowed by a video game.
  • You simply can not declutter anything with a child around. The ‘bin/recycle’ pile suddenly becomes a trove of ‘my favouritest toy EVER’.
  • Something more painful than helping your child with their homework is teaching your mum to use a mouse.
  • When you finally find something your toddler will eat and stock up on it in case the factory burns down and they can’t make it anymore…you can guarantee they will hate it by the time you’ve unpacked the shopping bags.
  • I do not give my youngest enough credit. She is fearless and determined. It’s me that over-thinks and worries too much.
  • After having a wonderful long weekend with my favourites, I declare that all weekends should consist of three days. I might start liking Mondays then! 😆

  1. Yep, the one moaning on the way home.. the other one will be asleep with the seatbelt cutting into their neck!!
    Totally agree with the recycle pile. No matter whats in there that they haven’t played with for months, suddenly it’s flavour of the day!
