Ten mum thoughts when getting kids ready

Hey readers,

Why is it such as pain the arse to get out of the home with two children. God it is an absoutle nightmare. Here are my ten thoughts that crop up going through the military process of getting them ready to go out.



  1. Do I really need to go out, I am knackered and we have only got one pair of socks.
  2. Surely I ย must lose a few pounds from profusely sweating that I don’t need to do a workout later.
  3. Why do I also end up playing cat and mouse around the home.
  4. God my hubby is wanker because yet again I am left to get the kids changed.
  5. Why the fuck do you have to throw the shoes across the room.
  6. Why won’t you sit still for just one minute.
  7. I am turning into my mother, I never thought I would say ‘still for Godsake’.
  8. Thank God for bribery you saved my sanity once again.
  9. That’s it Cbeebies going on just so we can get the hell out of here by today.
  10. Looking at the clock outside, WTF! It ย took two hours to get out the God dame door, jeez I wish I just stayed at home. Less sweaty with a cup of tea!

Cheers for reading X

  1. Oh yes to all of those above and my daughter is 10 now! I have to prise her away from the Disney Channel/her laptop/my phone before she will do anything getting to school of a morning is a nightmare! #kcacols

  2. Absolute brilliant! I have some of the same thoughts espically the sweating run around getting out the door and the one about turning into your mum is pure genius I also say “sit still for one minute” a I’ve recently found myself saying “stop mumming me” thanks for sharing #KCACOLS

      1. My mum said it to me as a kid and when I catch myself saying it I’m like “oh no, I’m turning into my mother” it’s inevitable ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Check. Check. Check.
    The shoe-throwing almost pushes me over the edge every time. Now that I can’t just put him in a stroller, the battle for shoes is even worse.
    I like the comment on “Stop mumming me!” Babies! Who’d have ’em?

  4. This is hilarious! Gone are the days when I can just throw my clothes on and run out the door-getting kids ready to go is exhausting!! Number 1 crosses my mind at least a dozen times during the ‘get-ready’ process, haha! And I only have one… #KCACOLS


  5. Couldn’t agree more. My littlest always wants to go out, but he refuses to sit still so I can put his shoes on, then he won’t stand up to have his coat put on. AND THEN, when we finally get out of the door, he disappears off down the side of the garage and comes back FILTHY. So I go out thinking everyone is staring at me and wondering why I don’t keep my children clean. Because it took for-fucking-ever to get out of the house, so we ARE NOT going back inside to change clothes! #TheList

  6. haha so true!! I always feel the exact same way every time that we need to go out!! It takes ages!! The only thing different is that hubby does help me changing them while I get a shower but it is still all so stressful! Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. It would be lovely to have you again on Sunday!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
