My favourite post from last week: Daily Dump – Container Under the Sink Identified as a Garbage Can. A hilarious post from a bizarre parallel universe where children know how to tidy up.

Claire’s favourite post: ‘So Happy In Town – Tips to Look After Your Husband (1950 vs 2017). I think equality for women still has a long way to go, but Susie’s post made me realise how far we’ve come. It also made me howl with laughter.’

Emma’s favourite post: ‘Mumzilla – Inner Monologue Of Explaining Bodily Functions. Oh we have all been there. Been on that toilet, squeezed into a cubicle with our little darling, squirming as they ask something very inappropriate. Jersey is still recovering from the time Youngest asked me very loudly in a public toilet, “Mummy, why are you bleeding from your big bottom”. Oh the shame.’

My favourite post from last week: Daily Dump – What ‘”It’s Time To Go” Means To My Kids. This is so true! It is just impossible to leave the house with kids, no matter when you start. Trying to get shoes on kids is like trying to nail jelly to a wall.

Claire’s favourite post: ‘Mom of Two Little Girls – Anything But a Fight With My Four Year Old. Don’t poke the bear is an expression well used in my house. If my three year old is happy and content, leave him be. He hates being interrupted from sleep / play / food / bath time / Bubble Guppies. This post made me laugh because it is so true.’

Emma’s favourite post: ‘Tales From Mamaville – 5 Things Every Mum Needs Nicole has nailed it here. Give me these 5 things every night and I would be one very happy mama! Trashy television is at the top of my list. I could probably tell you the life-story for everyone on The Apprentice. Yes, I am addicted to trashy television.’

Apologies for last week – due to a catalogue of disasters, I wasn’t able to get the linky post up. Thank you to those who linked up their fantastic funny posts. This week, I have decided that we are now in the festive season. Or at least festive season adjacent. Close enough. So I’m linking up a post from a couple of years ago about the weird things we accept regarding Christmas.

My favourite post from last week: Tales From Mamaville – Overheard: Seven Common School Run Conversations. I’m now a school mum since September, and I have had pretty much all these conversations. I have been known to be yelling ‘STOOOOPPPP!’ at two different kids running at Usain Bolt speeds in OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS.

Claire’s favourite post: ‘The Mummy Bubble – A Baby’s Guide to Coping With Sleep Deprivation. The little one is currently obsessed with the movie The Boss Baby. Couldn’t help but read this post from The Mummy Bubble with the voice of The Boss Baby in my head. It was very fitting. A must read for parents to be. Or maybe not. It might put them off!’

Emma’s favourite post: ‘Apply to Face Blog – Halloween Treats. I love this post because it combines a funny story with some yummy Halloween treats! I can also relate to the swimming story. I had to give up on swimming lessons for my two: I couldn’t cope with the stress. My two were forever running in opposite directions and don’t even mention the showers. I had to stop before I ended up pushing a parent into the pool. ‘

Hedgehogs Do Rot and Other Teachable Moments

As a parent, it is part of our job to teach our children…stuff, right? You know, educate them, teach them about the world around them, and…stuff. Yes?

Okay, so this week, I went to supermarket with the littlest one, who has just turned three. She had one of the free pieces of fruit while we went round. An apple. She sat in the trolley. She ate her apple. Food was purchased. Bribery was not necessary. I left the shop with the same number of children I entered with. At no point did I have to break any of Usain Bolt’s records in the dairy aisle* in order to make leaving with the same number of children I entered with happen. It was a very successful supermarket trip.

We went back to the car. I put the shopping in the car. I put the three year old in the car. She handed me the apple core. I looked around. There were no bins anywhere in sight in the car park. I could have run back to the shop, but we weren’t very near the shop and she was already strapped in the car. We were parked right by a grass verge and hedgerow. So I put the apple core under the hedge, because it’s an apple core.

The three year old had a few questions about this behaviour. I explained that it is okay to put rubbish on grass or soil instead of the bin as long as the rubbish is natural, like apple cores, because it will rot. I said that it would be very bad to leave rubbish like plastic there because that will never rot. It will stay there, and it doesn’t look nice and it harms the environment. I said that things that people have made that are not natural usually have to be taken away properly by people, but things that belong outside like leaves and fruit don’t cause any harm when they are left outside. They just rot back into the soil and feed plants. The discussion continued. It seemed to be going well. I got ambitious. I said that we call things that will rot ‘biodegradable’, but things like plastic are not biodegradable. The three year old had this: ‘Because they won’t rot. Plastic won’t rot.’
‘Yes, exactly. Well done.’
‘And hedgehogs. Hedgehogs won’t rot.’
‘Wait…what? No…’

Okay, so now I’m explaining that hedgehogs are, in fact, very much biodegradable. As long as they are dead first. The whole thing took quite a dark turn, really.

Moral of the story: don’t teach your kids things. It won’t go well. When you see a teachable moment, just let it pass you by. Wave it on its way. Unless you want to find yourself explaining about hedgehog decomposition. It does not matter how unlikely it seems that you will find yourself discussing hedgehog decomposition by providing that innocent bit of educational information to your child: you will end up with dead hedgehogs.

I really should have known better. I once, whilst painting with my two pre-schoolers, merrily informed them that black is not really a colour. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Didn’t seem like such a good idea 30 minutes into the discussion with a four year old and a nearly three year old about what the f**k black actually is.

These moments are not teachable moments. These moments are the reason the phrase ‘just because’ exists. There is nothing like attempting to explain the world to a small child to make you realise that you don’t have the faintest clue about anything at all.

 
 

*That’s me who often ends up sprinting down the dairy aisle. I don’t think Usain Bolt has actually set any of his records in the dairy aisle. As far as I know, he does not hold the world record in the 5 Metre Toddler in a Dairy Aisle event.

Amelia Has Fallen

Well, the list of the most popular baby names of last year has been released by the Office for National Statistics, and there has been something of a shock result at number one.

Not in the boys’ names. That’s still Oliver. All of the boys are still called Oliver. Urban legend suggests that some boys are actually not called Oliver, but they succumb to societal pressure to conform when they start nursery and school. They just resign themselves to the fact that no one is going to remember that they aren’t called Oliver, and everyone is going to call them Oliver. After about a week, they come to believe that they probably always were called Oliver anyway. Plus, they didn’t like feeling left out of the stampede that happens when the teacher says ‘Oliver, come and get your book/milk/bag/coat.’

So, no surprises with the boys. But the girls? Oh the girls. There has been a shake-up at the top. Amelia has fallen. This is not a drill. Amelia has fallen. Amelia, which has been the top name for so long we’ve actually all had time to get over the loss of Amelia Pond from Doctor Who during its reign, is no more. That’s a bit of an exaggeration: Amelia is number two. Didn’t fall very far, to be fair.

Oh yes, last year people giving birth to little girls went rogue, they thought outside of the box, they…well, they called the little girls Oliver too, basically. Yes, Amelia was finally toppled from the top by the feminine version of the reigning boys’ name. I imagine the thinking was: ‘This is all well and good – all the boys are called Oliver. It’s easy to remember. But this whole girls’ name thing is a problem. That name we’re using is like a whole separate name. Ain’t nobody got time for that shit. Surely there is something a bit more similar to Oliver we could be calling these girls?’ Then somebody had a brainwave. From way out of left field they came up with…well, the name that all the girls were called before they were all called Amelia, actually. (We’ve travelled back in time to 2010. I think Amelia Pond would like that.) The queen is dead, long live the queen.

Apparently, there was a period of about 200 years when all girls were called Mary once upon a time. And, of course, 9 out of 10 girls born in the 1970s and 1980s were called Jennifer. People like to be consistent. Or maybe everyone just gets these names stuck in their head and isn’t quite sure why: ‘Well, there was this one name I heard somewhere – I’m not sure where – that was quite nice…’ Thus the cycle continues. The self-perpetuating cycle of Oliver.

Of course, the main thing to note here – the really important thing – is that, no matter how many Olivers and Olivias there may be, only one couple were daft enough to call their baby Sir…

 
 
(*Disclaimer: This is just a bit of fun. I think Oliver, Amelia and Olivia are all lovely names. I do not think Sir is a lovely name. I think it’s effing stupid. That is all.*)

Somethin’ Stupid (or Ballad of the Tinder Girl)

Today, I have written a parody to honour the undisputed person of the week: the woman who managed to go on a tinder date, throw her poo into the abyss between an internal window and the wall at her date’s house, get wedged upside down in the gap trying to retrieve the poo, and have to be rescued by the fire-brigade, wrecking the poor date’s house in the process. If you have managed to miss this epic tale of romance and poo, I suggest you read it. Because, well, she got stuck in a window trying to retrieve her own poo. In every sense, you cannot make this shit up.

So here is my parody of Somethin’ Stupid for Liam’s unfortunate date.

 
 
Somethin’ Stupid

 
I know I’m swiping left until you think you have the time
To go to Nandos with me
And if we go to yours for wine, I know that there’s a chance
I’ll need the lavatory
And afterwards you’re watching a Scientology documentary by Louis Theroux
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like “I threw my poo”

 
I can see it in your eyes
That you have never had a date who threw her poo before
And though there was a window there, that much is true
It didn’t actually lead outside at all

 
I practice gymnastics, I can fit into that gap and find some way
To retrieve the poo that I threw
But then I think I’m stuck in here head first still just trying to reach my poo
The time goes by, you’re worried now, the fire-brigade gets called and, oh, their light’s so blue
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like “I threw my poo”

 
The time goes by, you’re worried now, the fire-brigade gets called and, oh, their light’s so blue
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like “I threw my poo”

 
I threw my poo
I threw my poo
I threw my poo

 
I threw my poo

Friday Frolics – 1st September 2017

Welcome to Friday Frolics, the linky with the giggles. Friday Frolics is hosted by myself, Claire at Life, Love and Dirty Dishes, and Emma at Island Living 365. It’s the place to link up your funny posts and snort your tea whilst enjoying some others.

Thank you to everyone who linked up their fantastic funny posts last time. As it’s the summer holidays, Claire, Emma and I will be taking turns to host alone for the six weeks, and therefore comments will only be received from whoever is hosting. There will also only be one host post to comment on. Emma is hosting this week.
