My word of the week is:
because it is the new year, shiny and sparkly 2018! Happy new year to all my readers, let’s have a good one or just a week to get over the b***s**t!
I received as a present four tickets for me, hubby and the boys to go to the panatomine. Now, I haven’t been before for a couple of reasons. 1. it is bloody expensive and 2. the times I thought about it was with my eldest but there was no way in hell he would spend ten minutes sitting down. He would be a nightmare and potentially run around everywhere.
So, this year we went to our local theatre and watched Cinderella (in all honesty I am envious that my mum who got me the tickets opted for herself tickets to see madness. I think she had the better deal of getting to seeing Madness tribute act. Which I am pretty sure both my kids would of enjoyed, lol).
Anyway, the boys still loved it as it was entertaining for them. Here is the thing that annoyed me when viewing the performance, considering that it appeared that most of the audience was a younger then say 10 they said, ‘smash your face in’ and ‘stupid’ which I am not sure whether it was really appropriate, maybe it is, I don’t know. But for me I felt a bit uncomfortable that one of the actors said it to a six year old, now I have a six year old and lucky it wasn’t him because I would not of been happy at all. Still, it was an experience and something different especially after the christmas climax.

Do you ever tell little white lies as a parent because I sure do, anything to keep my life a little bit easier. I am now going to confess some of my little white lies I have told my children.
Santa claus is real so you best be good because he is watching you. He is everywhere and knows everything.
Things that you think are so easy but when you are a parent things happen to be totally different. Take for instant the tablet and ok I do actually only have one as hubby won’t let me get two because he wants to teach the boys to share. I on the other hand would totally buy another tablet because you know what my ears can’t be arsed to listen to the petty squabbling. I like a simple life, call me what you want, life is much better when it is quiet. So, if I can’t get a second tablet then alternative to get a quiet life is to sometimes tell a little lie, ‘sorry but the battery of the tablet is died.’ Even though the tablet itself has 90% battery life left, I just simply can not be f**ked with it sometimes. I would rather watch a repeated episode of Topsy and Tim, that quite frankly is saying something!
Sometimes, I can’t face living my home with two kids because it is a chore or I can tell they are going to be grade A a**eholes. So, I may *ahem* say I can’t do xyz because we have no money.
This is more of a seasonal white lie but around Christmas time the main threat that are give my children is that if they do not behave then I will ring santa and he won’t deliver any presents. It is a beautiful threat because it is actually one that they take very seriously, mhahahahaha!
My youngest hates anything veggie or fruit if he can visually see it. He asks when we have spaghetti bolognese is there any vegetables in the food, of course there is none it is just the sauce.
When I am struggling to stay awake I stick a movie on for the kids and snuggle down with them whilst sneakily getting some shut eye. I don’t know why but kids have this super sense when your trying to sleep to jump all over you or constantly ask questions, such as. ‘are you awake mummy?’ I reply, ‘ of course I am awake I am just resting my eyes’. Honest!
When you don’t want an argument with your child but they want an answer, simple just say, ‘we’ll see’.
When out and about particularly on public transport the child asks when will we get there. Always respond with we’re nearly there, even if it is another 20 minutes to reach the destination.
Anytime a child touches something breakable or anything fancy, I reply if you touch it will break.
Well come back another time is a typical response to a question when you know damn well there is no change we will.
The child asks, ‘what are you doing mummy?’ mummy replies, ‘i’m only having a drink I will be in a minute’. When secretly I am scoffing all the chocolate 😉
Sometimes, to get back at daddy because the sod has had yet another glorious lie in I tell the kids, ‘wake up daddy he is much better at doing xyz’ and I sit back grinning on the sofa whilst over hearing the boys come running into daddy’s bedroom screaming at the top of their voices and bouncing all over the bed. *evil mummy8

Firstly, I want to confirm that I love my children but sometimes they can be a right pain in the arse and here is why!
They expect you to know the rules of the game that they have made up in there head and if you dare ge tthe rules wrong they go berseck. I mean come on I am not psychic.
They have a knack at saying things at the most inappropriate time in public places super loud. Such as, one time my youngest decided to ask me in the toilets why do you have a hole mummy? Where is your hole mummy? What is that in your pants (sanitary towel for your info).
You have to watch their mind numbingly rubbish shows that are really bright now a days, in my opinion anyway!
Why are children so loud, particular first thing in the bloody morning. Then there is the never ending questions, just drop it for the 1000 time, we are doing it because mummy said so, now sod off.
Children are SO needy and constantly demanding, I mean they really could give Mariah Carey a run for her money and that is saying something 😉
The older a child gets they cost and they are aware of it with their own certain desires and specifications, no dubes anymore, *sob*!
The meltdowns when they are tired are killer, especially when they are in total denial.
They like really like early mornings and they 99.9% of the time get up at the same time of the day, regardless of late nights, dark mornings, nothing will stop the little monkeys from getting up and bouncing on mummy and daddy’s bed, pfft!
When we drive anyway the constantly asking are we there yet. I mean we haven’t even left the car park and it is, ‘are we there yet?’, well what do you bloody well think, fml!
If there are siblings involved it is constant bickering about what the other person has. It really doesn’t matter what it is, if the the other child has it then they will have a massive hissy fit. For instant there have already been several arguments in my household over the fact that one child has the blue spoon when they have the green, I mean seriously, they do the same job just as well, it is only colour.

Isn’t parenthood wonderful, since being a mum I have learnt so much. I know it is cheesy, but it so does change you as a person. Let me inlight you with the things I have learnt from being a mum.
Since being a mum I have been constantly thinking I am so tired and the fact there is nothing more appealing than spending a whole day in bed, could you imagine?!
Motherhood changes you for the better, you grown and learn skills. For example patience and how to speak more simpler, which are brilliant skills to master in my eyes.
Sadly, you slowly learn the hard lesson that having children is expensive. This particularly came more apparent when my eldest started school.
Kids are noise and your poor little ears will be battered with the ongoing squabbling.
The washing basket will never be empty again and you take so much pleasure in completing washing
If you get to sleep till 8am you are privileged. I am also going to say that when you do have the lucky chance to sleep in, you will soon be greeted with sods law knocking on your door as you are so internally trained to wake up so early, you mind has suddenly thought there is some serious emergency.
Guilt is there 24/7 and you doubt everything, no matter what anyone says you constantly question the decisions you make.
You will inevitably turn into your mother, there is no escaping – whether it be moaning that you are constantly tired or you got adopt them catchphrases such as, one more time, wait until your dad gets home.
No matter how many books you read, there is no one perfect answer. Changes are things change and popular ways of parent constantly shift. I learnt this when I had two children.
