That Moment When…

That moment when…
  • You send your child to school with Dairylea on his face, don’t have any wipes and for a split second consider using your spit…
  • You feel ridiculously triumphant that you find a pair of matching shoes in the same room.
  • You realise at 8.40am that your child hasn’t done his homework and he has to do it on the way to school.
  • You decide you only need to shave your armpits if you’re wearing something sleeveless.
  • You realise you can’t bounce on a trampoline without having a wee first…
  • You realise your sore throat is from singing too loudly at a toddler group and something dies inside…
  • You put your nose next to your toddler’s bottom and inhale deeply…only to discover they’ve pooed.
  • You put your nose next to SOMEONE ELSE’S toddler’s bottom…and the same thing happens.
  • You patch some the knee of some ‘playing out’ jeans…on the wrong side.
  • You turn on the shower before getting undressed…and it’s pointing straight at you.
  • You start changing a shitty nappy…and the wipes are out of your reach.
  • You start washing up…and realise you forgot to empty drink dregs, left-over cereal milk etc. before you filled up the sink.
  • You’re out, it starts raining and you realise you’ve left out: washing, shoes/toys on the trampoline, the dog…
  • You fanny fart at a yoga class.  What?  Just me, then?
  • You drive onto a rooftop car park with height restrictions and then realise you’ve got a roof box on the top of the car.  Just me again? £320 and many hysterical tears later…
  • Your husband offers to make you a brew when you’re in a birthing pool, in established labour, sucking on gas and air and about to push a little person out of your lady bits…
  • You fall asleep (intoxicated) in your contact lenses and have to wear a pirate patch for three days over Christmas due to a severe eye infection.
  • You’re sitting watching TV after the children are in bed and one of their toys suddenly ‘talks’ to you.


Any of these relatable?  No?  Then what about the ones underneath?

    You realise that you forgot to collect the sandwich / dog poo bag which you wedged in between a beautiful dry stone garden wall, in a very quaint village, after a drink in the pub!!! Oops!
