So for the last 7 years my house has been an absolute disaster. I’ve only got two kids but I feel like I’m been invaded by the thrash monsters. I’ve no space to even to put a cup down sometimes. I’m fed up moaning at them to tidy their toys away and fighting with my myself over the stress of clutter. I decided, Continue reading
It’s that time of year again with scary ghosts and hyper children with too much trick or treats. We all know the old traditions, bobbing apples and snap apple, they always go down well at children’s parties. Here’s some ideas if you are having a little party and want them to burn off excess energy.

It’s that time of year and kids are all excited as they are finished for the school holidays. You’re thinking, this is great, no rushing out the door in the mornings, getting lunches and school uniforms ready, it’ll be nice and relaxing. Yeah, I find that thought works great for the first half hour until you hear them both in unison ‘Mammy, Mammy , Mammy I’m bored , what’s next? Where are we going? What will we do today? I’m hungry…
Then I’m thinking HELP!!!! Continue reading
I know nearly every nursery rhyme song and I now compare my life to Peppa Pig and that’s ok.
Kids always time Continue reading
So after weeks of meticulously planning a night out after a couple of years of having two children and writing 101 lists for the baby sitter because of course, she doesn’t know my kids the way I do, and more than likely she’ll ignore it all and give them the chocolates she’d been hiding in her pocket and let them stay up late to watch a movie, here’s the eye opening pros and cons of my night out.
Pro – We get to the pub and enjoy the weird experience of being able to talk at normal level voice and not listen out for any footsteps or movement.
Con – My nerves are gone as all I’m thinking of is the kids and hope they are not calling out for me.
Pro – Nice to talk to new people and socialise
Con – Why does this person keep talking to me, I didn’t invite them into my company. How can I make them go away?
Con – This person beside is dribbling and I don’t know how to stop it.
Pro – My child is doing that because he is growing teeth and that’s cool.
Art of conversation
Con – Why is this person slurring and I can’t understand the words from their mouth.
Pro – My child is learning to talk and I can teach them new words
Con – The toilets have piss on the floor.
Pro – My child is in toilet training so that’s acceptable to be on the floor
Con – Men grab your breast just random in a crowded place and think that’s OK.
Pro – Child grabs it because they are hungry.
Con – Bouncer won’t let me in to nightclub as not right sort and I look to old and not trendy enough.
Pro – Mammy, mammy, look at me jumping up and down on this bouncer you bought.
Con – Why are the people in the chipper not swallowing food properly and spitting. Should I get them a bib in their size?
Pro – My child is learning to eat by themselves and it’s cute and bibs fit them.
Pro – I don’t have to drive and I can get a taxi.
Con – Have to listen to taxi man tell you that he knows everything and what I should do with my life!
So that was my observation of my night out. How things have changed so much when before I was all about ‘what are we doing this weekend -‘what will I wear’, ‘who’s coming out,’ ‘will I meet someone?’ Why has my attitude changed to nights out, Is it because I’m a parent or have I grown up or both ?
Does not going out on the town mean you don’t have a social life? My opinion is no.. I just have a different form of a social life..
So tonight I have my friends over to have a good chat, few drinks and no one has to stand in the cold waiting on a very informative taxi man to bring us home and also I just couldn’t be arsed going out :-).
