Wot so Funee? More Mums with Nappy Brain!

Last week I may have mentioned how one post-natal Mum embarrassed herself mightily due to the factor I like to call “nappy brain.” Blame it on hormones, tiredness, or the aging process, it seems there are a large amount of Mums with nappy brain. Take a look at these ladies if you don’t believe me! Missing Sleep, on a trip to the swimming pool, discovered she couldn’t get her locker open. She got the staff to break into to get her clothes out, and then panicked because it was empty. After raising the roof about her stolen clothes, it began …

What I absolutely neeeeeeeeed for Christmas!

All the above items will be available in the Autumn/Winter collection at John Lewis. Let’s just say, I think I have found my party dress! Yes, I know! It is way too early to be thinking about what I need for Christmas 2012, and yet…. I just cannot help myself! I go all pink, just thinking about the lush things I’ve seen, and I’ve already submitted my birthday requirements to Mummy so the Christmas list it is! I mean, who doesn’t get a sparkly tingle at the site of a twinkly light reflected in a shiny bauble? No? Just me …

Wot So Funee? Mums with nappy brain!

Mummy uses this feature each week to highlight some of the  things the Bug and I say and write that make her laugh. That’s fine; I’m a big girl, I can take a bit of nonsense if it makes her happy. What she neglects to include though, are the random gaffs that come out of the mouths of Mums with nappy brain. This week I am redressing the balance! Never let Mums with nappy brain out unsupervised: About 3 months after I was born, Mummy set off with two other new Mummies for a girls weekend. There were three adults …

Parent Failure

Pssst! It’s GG and the Bug’s Mummy here. *Warning – this post may contain square-words… The last week of school. It’s a nightmare, isn’t it? For the children it has been a week of excitement, drama (on and off the stage) celebrations, and gifts. For me it has been one parent failure after another. Lets start with the costumes: Old-fashioned bar owner in the Lemonade kid. She had to have curly hair apparently. As I struggled to get my pre-Romantics heated curling tongs (not seen action for 30 years) out of the matted burning mess of hair, I entertained the …

Trains? Planes? Automobiles? His first Demolition Derby…

He really didn’t want to go. Under pressure he picked a favourite caravan. He cried when it was the first to get smashed up by the other cars on the track. It was raining. He didn’t see the point. But his Daddy loves stock cars. Here’s how he coped with his first Demolition Derby… This post was inspired by the Gallery at Sticky Fingers

Wot So Funee? The Weird Forest (a short story)

by GG I like to read. I like to write. I read fast. I write fast. I am easily bored, so what may begin it’s foray onto paper as genius styling and witty prose, could well tail off into an ugly scrawl as I lose patience and start to crave a skipping rope. At school I have frequently been praised for a good start, then reprimanded for metaphorically wandering off the page and into my neighbour’s pencil case. Wot so funee about that?? C’mon, let me know!!! Now, if you have your own post to link this week, grab the …

Wot So Funee?

Me and the Bug have been pretty sensible this week, so it’s time once again to look to social media for some inspiration. We asked for your funees and you did not disappoint! I love reading that I am not the only one whose parents laugh at their children’s very serious attempts at language, and I think you will find some very clever children running rings around their silly parents here! If you have written a similar post please link up at the bottom, and if you’re not a blogger, or just have a quick quote like these feel free …

Guest post from Netmums Author Hollie Smith: Advice for parents on how to deal with friendship issues

I have never hosted a guest post before. I’ve had editorial from brands and companies on here occasionally, but I’ve never actually hosted another blogger. And not just any old blogger, either. A proper, bona fide published author-turned-blogger. I first came across Hollie Smith when I offered to review her Netmums Ultimate Baby & Toddler Q&A book. I thought that me having been an example of her subject matter not long ago, and an occasional comic to boot, would see me well-placed to write a riveting review. Time will tell; I’m up to the chapter about cutting baby’s nails, and …

I know about God: Wot So Funee?

This is a Linky post – go ahead and link up Some of the the things the Bug and I know about God…. GG: Mummy, God is the only person who never leaves you. Bug: Yes, because I know where God is. He’s in your heart. Bug: Mummy, today God came to visit our class! GG: 🙄 No he didn’t. God can’t actually go places. Bug: He can! He came to talk to us about the Christian religion. I know him, his name’s Graham. Later… Bug: Look, there’s God, that’s who came to visit us today! That’s God. The Vicar: …

My Mummy

My Mummy went to the BritMums Live blogger’s conference recently. The bickering normally associated with me and the Bug, instead emitted from the depths of her wardrobe as she rummaged through her options. Skirt = leg-shaving, not attempted since the night before Christmas 2011. Fave jeans = crash diet; not attractive. Day to evening emergency bling in case of an unexpected win at the Brilliance in Blogging awards. In the end she settled on a comfortable old friend from Zalando. Regular readers will know of my Mummy’s big temptation, #FrozenWine, an invention which came about at the suggestion of Delia …
