Being a part time parent | Blog

This last week has been a proper shit parenting week. Not because pickle has been a fact it's the opposite. He has been learning new words, playing with all his favourite toys and just generally being his normal cheeky, loving, wonderful self. The shit part is that I haven't been around to enjoy it and I have been left feeling like a part time parent which is also pretty shit.
FYI...apologies for the use of the word shit through out this post but it describes perfectly how I am feeling right now so I am going to use it.


Finding the right profesional | Bidvine Collaboration

Hubby has always been pretty handy when it comes to DIY and stuff that needs doing in the house. He used to be a plasterer and builder before he starting doing security work so knows what he is doing most of the time. But since we had pickle his priorities have changed and he would now rather spend an afternoon playing with pickle than doing DIY which I can totally understand but it has left us in a bit of a predicament when it comes to finding a trustworthy, reliable tradesman if we have any jobs that need doing. That is where Bidvine comes in!!


10 things you say when you have a toddler | Blog

Being a Mummy to a rambunctious 2 year old has it's perks. I get to watch Disney junior, play with lego, do colouring and arts and crafts...all without feeling bad because I have a toddler and I am entertaining him. It also comes with all the lovely cuddles and kisses from a little person who is just starting to learn how to express love and emotion. It is truly a wonderful time in Bubba's little life and I am loving it.

Bubba is constantly exploring and pushing boundaries be that emotionally, verbally or physically. It's completely normal that he is doing this but it does provide me with some interesting thoughts during the day. I find myself thinking and saying things the I never thought in a million years I would have running through my head or coming out of my mouth and I wanted to share to make me feel less like a freak more normal and to reassure anyone who is having the same crazy thoughts throughout the day.

1. Before I give this to my child can he swallow it, stick it up his nose or in his ear? Nope? Okay, he can have it.

2. Does my son have some sort of little bed troll who sits there of a night time and files his finger nails and toe nails into point to make them super god damn sharp!?!?!

3. FINE! spend the rest of the day in your vest, a t-shirt covered in wootsit stains and one sock. See if I care! (I secretly do care and the sock and wootsit thing is killing me!!!!!)

4. ''No!!! Don't put Marshall down the toilet.''

5. ''Don't put Zumer down the toilet.''

6. I wonder if I can clean Marshall and Zumer with bleach or will the paint come off?

7. He can't fit a nesquix up his nose... Okay, I'm wrong...he can fit a nesquix up his nose... SHIT!!

8. How on earth can my son eat rasines and then 4 hours later poop them out fully formed?!?

9. ''Can you stop licking my leg please!?!?!'' (whilst the toddler stands there and makes me look like I've peed myself)

10. ''Can you stop pulling 'that'! It doesn't come off and your going to hurt yourself soon! ''

Any of these ring any bells with you? If so then I feel ya Mumma :)


Where has my voice gone?? | Blog

Recently I have lost my voice. I don't mean my actual voice.. god no! I was still able to sing a bit of Agadoo at a birthday party recently so my vocal voice is fine. What I'm talking about is my "voice". The one which I speak to you with on this blog. I seem to have lost it and am struggling to find it again! 
My little blog has always been something of an outlet for me to write about whatever I want. From talking about loosing loved ones to breastfeeding, My Mummy Spam has been my space for me to let my "voice" run free and say all it wants to say. Recently that voice seems to have become mute and I seem to have nothing to say so therefore nothing to write and I have hated it. 

quite, speaking, not speaking, hand over mouth, shut up, shush, not talking, mute, no voice
