Wicked Wednesdays – Walking with Watering Cans

Before I was a fully fledged Mama I used to hear the expression ‘pick your battles’ a lot and be totally bemused as to what that really meant.

On the day when you’re running late to collect your daughter from gym, the car is at the garage being fixed,  it’s freezing, it’s raining and you have two children to walk 10 minutes to make the pick up, you choose your battles as to whether the purple watering can is coming along for the ride…

Three Year Old one, mummy nil. This was a battle I chose not to pick!

    1. It certainly is! He proceeded to fill the watering can with stones and then tip them all out on the carpet when we got home! AGGH! At least there were no tears, at least from him anyway! ? Thank you – he’s cuter when he keeps his tongue in his mouth IMO!

  1. In fairness that watering can looks cute! My son is like this too. On our school run he would carry different things daily and by the end of the week my bag is full of random things that is if I remember to clean my bag at the end of the week =P


    1. Yep – cute watering can and he did carry it himself (part of the conditions of the negotiation!) walk would have been a lot shorter without it though! He was stopping every two minutes to fill it with stones! ?

  2. Sometimes? You just gotta give in bablar. Thanks so much for making me smile and joining in with Wicked Wednesdays. Have a great bank holiday and see you next week! x
