We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

Top 5 reasons to have kids – truthful ones and sweet ones!


  1. You will always have an excuse for being late, fat, having a messy house, being tired, forgetful and cranky.
  2. As they get older and become fascinated with things on the floor, they become quite effective vacuum cleaners.
  3. If you’ve never really enjoyed time by yourself, well you’ve hit the jackpot, you will never be alone, even showers and trips to the loo become a two-person affair, or in my case a four-person adventure.
  4. They are great to blame on when something you touch falls to the ground in a shop – until they get older and they can tell on you.
  5. For those insomniacs out there, of which I was one for years, you’ll be so whacked all the time you will pass out within seconds of hitting the pillow.



Here’s some SOPPY reasons

  1. There is nothing cuter than watching a nude baby run up the hallway.
  2. If you love kisses and cuddles, you can get them whenever you want, sometimes you’ll have to beg the older ones but 2 to 3-year-olds are super cuddly!
  3. You will know the true meaning of unconditional love.
  4. The smell of a newborn baby is nicer than rain on hot concrete.
  5. With every child you birth your heart grows (and so does your waistline, sorry I couldn’t be too serious and sickly – it’s just not me).

Author: Have A Laugh On Me

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. you forgot one – you’re guaranteed to have someone to pick out a nice home for you (hopefully nice, anyway!)

  2. So sweet! Lovely post, and agree on all 10. I’d add, you get to see kids movies and play at parks without looking creepy.
    Gorgeous kids you have there x

  3. Gorgeous post! And very true too, both the funny and the sweet reasons 😉

  4. All perfectly good reasons 🙂 And look at those gorgeous kids!

  5. When you sneeze into your hand at the shops and don’t have a tissue, you can wipe it on the back of your babie’s onesie – after all, they are covered in dribble and vomit anyway. (true story…)

  6. This is a lovely post. I definitely agree with not being alone when going to the loo, my one year old loves to let himself in when I’m trying to have some quiet time! Probably should close the door 🙂

    • Thanks for you kind words. I also never shut the door but it’s only because If I do I dread what I’ll find when I come out – and need it open to hear who is killing who and so I can call out to them to stop sitting on baby (okay it’s more like yelling) 🙂

  7. I love all the reasons, the funny and the soppy. Number 1 on both your lists are my favourites!!!

  8. Oh I love this, being a mum has totally dealt with my insomnia too, some nights it’s still hard but there is nothing like being physically and mentally exhausted to ensure good sleep.

    • You know I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to sleep through again, not because I don’t want to but I have this urge to check on my babies if I wake during the night, a habit I’ve GOT to break. thanks for visiting. Happy New Year Kyla – Emily

  9. I love the smell if a newborn. I can sniff one for hours. Does that make me creepy? 🙂

  10. Love this list. Nothing like kisses and cuddles on tap 🙂

  11. Awesome post. Very funny. I also wipe my hands on my son’s clothes. Better his than mine!

  12. Fabulous lists! Love your ‘looking on the bright side’ perspective! xx
