…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…
…think that the best thing to watch when you’re desperate for a night out is First Dates. A great reminder to be grateful for the fact that you’re snuggled up on the couch with your ‘date’.
…even more excited about the Bad Moms movie than you were about the first Sex and the City film – it looks hysterical! Definitely one to bring the wine along to!
…find it hard to explain to their child that as much as they love their superheroes they’re too young to see the film (e.g Batman v Superman) at the cinema. Thank goodness for the Lego movies that are more suitable.
…wake up planning to get their energy boost from smoothies rather than coffee, but only last until 10am.
…enjoy role playing with their toddler but sometimes find it a little bit embarrassing? For example when you’re in a Garda station organising your child’s passport and the little monkey calls you ‘She-Ra’ (from He-Man).
…think Adele should also add the ‘best celebrity mum’ award to her collection.
…reverted back to buying real books again – I have plenty of screen time as it is without reading novels on my tablet too.
…wondering whether it’s a crime to eat an Easter egg before Easter? They all look so tempting!
…planning to make presents for Valentine’s Day? Just make sure neither you or you partner forgets or you’ll end up doing a Monica and Chandler by grabbing the first thing that comes to hand. If I remember correctly they thoughtfully exchanged a sock bunny and a mix tape (featuring Janice)!
…think that this bottle from Penneys/Primark sums up their favourite Saturday night tipple since they became a mum (especially when there’s no lie in the next day).
…started Spring cleaning with a vengeance! I should be finished by Easter…
…buy biscuits that they’re not that bothered about so that they don’t get carried away and munch too many.
…not happy about being given a taste of their own medicine – I stubbed my toe on the table leg and was told by my toddler to ‘be more careful!’
…have times when you can’t sleep with the amount of ideas floating around your head and times when you have absolutely nothing to say #bloggersblock
…find growing your social media following is harder work than writing the posts themselves!
…love the fact that Pantone have released 2 official colours for 2016. Prepare to see Rose Quartz (a soft baby pink) and Serenity (a light powder blue) everywhere!
…taking the opportunity to take as many photos as possible in this gorgeous natural light we’re getting lately.
