Every once in a while someone utters something that totally floors you!
Whether it’s your child loudly telling a random person that: “My mum sometimes has an itchy bum you know, just like me!”
Or hearing those three magic words from your husband/partner… “I’ll cook tonight!”.
In this vein, I thought I’d share a few things you will NEVER hear me say – and if you do – you have permission to shoot me on the spot.
I can’t wait to do Dry July again.
Seriously, I hate to sound like an old soak, even if the shoes fits, but I did this last year and it was soul-destroying. Seriously what mother, or person for that matter, can cope without ONE DROP of alcohol for 31 days?
Aww go on, let’s have another child.
Seriously three is my dash, I’m already suffering from industrial deafness from the amount of screeching, crying and fighting that happens with my lot! Sorry what did you say?
Sure I’m fine with the fact you like to spell definitely with an ‘a’ eg definately.
Seriously people – I see it a lot in posts, FB updates and I cringe every time, and don’t even get me started on your and you’re.
No it’s okay, you don’t need to come and look after the kids for me.
When I just had one child I was hesitant to hand her over to my beloved and trusted mum. Nowadays I’ve got the car started and am sitting in it ready to leave as soon as she pulls up the driveway! In fact I don’t think I’ve refused an offer of help recently – you should seriously try it!
What is something that you are likely to NEVER say? Or what are words you would be shocked to hear come out of your partner’s lips?
I’d also like to take this chance to say a heartfelt thanks so all of you who gave me advice, encouragement, support and compassion on my post about my middle boy earlier this week!
Nearly 50 amazing people took time out to comment and I wish I had time to thank you all in person!
You’ll be happy to know I’ve started a list of ways to help my precious, sensitive soul became a more confident, happy boy.
This blogging community is quite something you know – and I’m glad I stumbled upon it!
