Wicked Wednesday – The ‘Nature Footwell’

 

I’ve seen these lovely display tables in schools and nursery settings whereby all the wonders of nature are displayed on to a ‘nature table’. Some lovely Mamas even have them in their homes! Not us though, we much prefer the rustic look with a whole car footwell set aside for our ‘nature table’.

To be honest, the car footwell looks like this most times of the year – just turns out we are en vogue with it in Autumn most of all! The addition of the conkers makes it all the more justifiable, IMO!

Do you have one of these in your car?

Wicked Wednesday – Hunt the Blu Tac

 

I kid you not – this is a game I, a 39 year old woman, played just last night! I know! This folks, is what real parenting actually looks like!

IMG_3178.jpg

You think you’re getting a baby, you know, the ones that look all cute in their knitted hats in the magazine, and wham, before you know it –  you’re playing hunt the blu-tac whilst trying to make the tea in an effort to prevent bat sh*t craziness ensuing from the smallest child in the house!

The game is fairly obvious. The Small Boy devised it himself 😐 he hides the tiniest pieces of blu-tac he can find, all around the house and then he waits expectantly for me to find them, giving helpful three-year old clues, like – ‘it’s der Mummy!’ as he opens the cupboard door to reveal the hiding blu-tac! This can go on for almost ten minutes – which as Mamas know is a long time when you’re TRYING TO MAKE TEA!

This game has the added bonus of finding long forgotten tiny pieces of blu-tac for days to come when you open cupboards, put on your shoe or go up the stairs!

Wicked Wednesday – The Wedding Suit

The Small Boy, his sisters, Mr P and I are going to a family wedding at the end of the month! Everyone is very excited as the Small Boy hasn’t been to a wedding since he was five months old so we can’t wait to see how he’ll enjoy it!

We’ve 😂 I’ve been looking for an outfit for him to wear, pretty dresses I’m used to for the girls, not so smart outfits for small boys! Turns out he’s not so enamoured with wearing Small Boy smart clothes either, as getting him to try them on has been some feat!

Finally I’ve found something that fits, not after quite a lot of biscuit bribery and lying around like this had gone on!

Wicked Wednesday – Siblings

If you don’t already know I have nine year old twin girls, and the Small Boy, three!

When people ask me ‘is it very different having a boy after two girls?’ I often say, ‘somethings are…’.

Here is what I actually mean…

Wicked Wednesday – The Crisp

Why do they do this? The small people? Why will they only have a photo taken if it’s with their ‘sword’, ‘Peppa Pig’, ‘PomBear Crisp’? What is that all about?!

AGGH! One day I will get a nice photo of him! One day! There will be no crisps in it!!

Wicked Wednesday – Toilet Roll Bed

Anyone else’s child like to get two pieces of toilet roll and lay them on top of themselves before they fall asleep? Anyone? No, just mine then 😬

IMG_1895.jpg Just to be clear – he did this himself! 😆

Wicked Wednesday – The Selfie Comeuppance

We all know someone we’d like to do this to, right?! All ‘selfie’obsessed and self absorbed in their phone all the time! Turns out the Small Boy sometimes feel like that about me! Fair do’s I say!

IMG_2833.jpg

For the record I think it looks worse than it was and I’m also not convinced he was aiming for the left hook fully, his face isn’t in it enough! That’s what I’m telling myself anyway! 😬😂🙈 Also let the record state I was trying to get a selfie of the both of us, honest!

Wicked Wednesday – Dressing My Way

As we’ve already established the Small Boy really does think the world revolves around him. He’s not really keen on doing things in the conventional way. He’s three. So he would wear this T-Shirt, but only back to front so he couldn’t see the ‘pink’ writing.

He would only agree to having his picture taken if he was allowed to wear some of my pink lipstick! Awesomeness! 😬 #lovespink #hatespink #hesthree
