Day to day goings on of a frazzled and frizzy Mother of 3 who says it like it is : Parenting by the seat of my Mummy-Tummy shaping, kidney-hugging underpants.
You may be under the mistaken impression that I am a Mum to 3 kids. Wrong. I am actually a Mum of 4, sometimes 5, often 7.
There's the 3 kids. That one's a given. And not likely to change for another 50 years until the circle of life spins around to show them the middle finger when it's their turn to look after me. It's this thought that gets me through sometimes. Enjoy your time kids,.... more »
Thanks for your text message. Really glad you learnt how to press at least 9 buttons on your new mobile phone before buggering off on an Eastern European cruise for a month.
"No shops on boat. Bugger!"
Happy Easter to you too, and yes your beloved Grandkids are fine. Thanks for asking.
Speaking of Easter, Kudos on including that major.... more »
Snow White - the original and the best fairy tale. This classic was Walt Disney's first ever animated feature film.
What little girl didn't want to be her? Who didn't want their own set of dwarf's? Complete with a Prince Charming type and a happy ending. What more could you want for your kids?
I may or may not have used chocolate biscuits in an attempt to bribe my friends.... more »
I'm feeling a little bit soap-boxish today. I'm feeling that itch and twitch that means I am in desperate need of some serious venting (or sedation).
Today's rant is bought to you by cartoons. To be specific, modern day cartoons. In fact, to go back to generalising (might as well offend many, as opposed to a select few), any program aimed at kids under the age of 8. Which is all of my.... more »
To the good People of the Inmycommunity...err...community,
I'm touting for assistance from...people. Lucky for me, you lovely people are....people.
I've been nominated for the Sydney Writers' Centre Best Australian Blogs 2011. That award is voted by a panel of judges, who I'm sure won't accept my offspring as viable bribery. And I'm fairly certain other.... more »
Recently, I wrote a blog post entitled When I grow up... If you read that, you'll know that I survived the great permed fringe debacle of the early 90's, which put me off a career in hairdressing.
Miss5, showing shades of her Mother's genetic make up, likes to cut her hair - but not in a girly-girl who wants to be a hairdresser kind of way. Instead,.... more »
Miss5 has always been great with food (that is, food she likes and is prepared to eat - and "none of the vegetable crap thanks" - her words). Try explaining to her that carrot (which she loves) is actually a vegetable, and she slouches on the table, face in hand, rolls her eyes like a Miss14 would, and says "yeah right Georgia", while waving her fork in the air. (I know she's serious.... more »
Overheard at the local park recently....
I'm sitting on a bench, passively ignoring my lot who are enjoying the enclosed play area (I'm detailing the fact that it is enclosed, so you don't think less of my mothering skills for passively ignoring them).
Sitting on the next bench are 3 "Alpha Mothers".
These are the Mothers who look like they're about to.... more »
