I had yet another truly glamourous moment one evening last week. I’m not going to say much about it because I think a picture (read: giphy below) says a thousand words.
I’ll just set the scene though...
I picked the babe up from nursery as usual where the head of the “Inbetweenies” Room (LOVE it – she is a big fan, hence the name!!) said that their tea had been a bit light, and a fair amount had been thrown on the floor, so she may want a little snack when we got home.
As half apples are the flavour of the moment, I duly obliged, plus did an extra large night-time milk. All finished up. I thought ‘ooohh, nice full belly’, fingers crossed for a nice long sleep tonight!!
Maybe she read my mind and thought she should teach me a lesson, maybe she wasn’t actually hungry and had just shovelled in the apple and 10oz of milk…???
Who knows, but I picked her up to take her upstairs for bath time, and this is pretty much the scene that followed (I’m basically the pavement in this).
I’m well aware that I’m in danger of having to change the name of the blog to “My Life in Poo & Vomit” so any tips on how to lead a more glamourous mummy life, are greatly appreciated!!
As ever, with love from our family to yours,
