I’m making a new rule for children.
They can now speak to us without US having to acknowledge them, for example, without them having to say our name 15 times IN A ROW.
Hands up if you agree?
I’m all for politeness when I’m talking to another adult out of the house but…
When we are at home – just ask the BLOODY QUESTION or SHOW ME YOUR FANTASTIC LEGO CREATION!
“Mum mum mum mum mum mum mum mum” or “Dad dad dad dad dad dad mum mum mum mum” (because by this time they’ve realised that dad has tuned out and so they revert back to asking mum mum mum mum).
AND for no reason, apart from the fact I like bullet points
oh hang that’s right my stupid blog doesn’t have them 😦 , I want to mention a few things for IBOT that are completely unrelated to the above rant:
I’m there – from 8.25am Friday until 5.30pm Saturday! Yes, on Friday I am staying overnight
hopefully, if I don’t dutch oven, or try and spoon my bedmate with the lovely Amanda! I will won’t be hard to miss at the conference – and you’ll be relieved sad if you miss drinking with meeting me!
LOOK WHO IS TURNING TWO?
No, not my blog, my baby! And yes in typical MOTY style (Mother of the Year) I didn’t realise that I would be away on his actual birthday – thankfully no one can count very well at my place so his birthday has been delayed by a day! BOOM!
I asked the Husband if he had noticed my large, loveable muffin belly was getting smaller – he said he hadn’t noticed much
(cue sad elevator music). But he did say that my boobs seemed more “deflated” – and welcome to the world of celibacy husband!
So the next time you ‘see’ me I’ll be self-hosted, I hope!
I’ll be a bit like a teenager who thinks they have LOTS more freedom, but doesn’t quite have the smarts to know how to use it wisely!
Do your kids repeatedly say your name until you feel like throwing yourself under a bus?
Are you going to Problogger? Will you be friendly, too cool for school or pretend you don’t know who I am?
Hang on don’t answer that, I’ll find out in three sleeps.
