…have a child that has recently discovered his love for ice cubes – trouble is he wants them in everything – and that means none left for my weekend G&T!
…never remember how long sun lotion lasts and how long ago you opened the bottles
…put so much pressure on yourself to make the most of the sunshine you’re rushing around too much to actually enjoy it!
…not stick to any of the plans they had for the Easter break? We will squeeze arts and crafts, baking and educational activities into every day – erm we made some krispie cakes last Wednesday…
…counting down the days until they can have a coffee in peace again (while also thinking the house is going to be so empty without them)
…find the minute they put their kid’s (only) special green outfit on they spilt something down it. Thank goodness for baby wipes.
…realise that their child’s St Patrick’s Day t-shirt will actually be hidden under ten layers of clothing.
…feel like their child’s demand for snacks has got out of control. It’s the norm at dinner time but this morning he ate all the fruit off the top of his porridge, didn’t touch the actual porridge and then got down and started raiding the cupboards!
…grateful to Gary Barlow for admitting he didn’t wash his hair for 14 years. Makes me feel much better about not washing mine for three days…
…shocked that supermarkets are putting Easter Eggs on the shelves already! They’re trying to turn us all into chocoholics!
…feeling smug about adjusting their child’s body clock so they go to bed later and sleep later. Trouble is I’m not looking forward to trying to re-adjust it again!
…still debating whether to buy a coffee machine or not. It would be much more convenient, but the takeaway cups from Costa are so much cuter than my mugs at home!
…getting a bit confused as to whether it actually is Winter or not. In Ireland it is, in the UK it’s not. It’s like ‘the dress’ all over again.
…love Autumn leaves WHEN THEY’RE OUTSIDE. Not when they’re found in pockets of trousers that have been washed…
…switching from Prosecco to red wine now the evenings are getting colder. The only bubbles I like at the moment are the ones in my hot bath.
…wondering which sport their toddler will be competing in at the 2032 Olympics? At the moment I’m thinking gymnastics…
…celebrating the fact that their kid can now dress themselves from head to toe whoop whoop! Now if he could just make his own dinner…
…get annoyed with the ‘family pack’ labels on confectionery? I can manage them all on my own thank you very much!
…think that no one would argue a tomato is a fruit after seeing a toddler’s reaction to eating one.
…reckon the best thing about being a parent on holiday is that no one will judge you for drinking at lunchtime
…think the only thing worse than packing is unpacking
…have no desire to do anything more ambitious than visit the beach, then the pool, then the beach, then the pool…
