You Have To Laugh Tag

 

you-have-to-laugh

I was tagged by Gemma at Colley’s Wobbles to take part in You Have to Laugh‘s brand new #youhavetolaughtag. It’s all about being able to smile and have a laugh about the many trials and tribulations of parenting which I firmly believe we all need to do, once in a while!

Here are my responses;

1) Fill in the gap: Before I had children I never …..

…thought I’d recieve a picture of poo via WhatsApp.

…thought I’d be happy to go to the supermarket alone

…went to soft play centres

So many things!!!! I feel this is a never ending list.

2) What is the most annoying toy that your child owns or has owned and why?

He currently has one of those big floor mat piano’s and I groan everytime he gets it out. Despite it being awful cute that he says “Mummy this is your song” and hums down his microphone to it whilst wiggling his little bum, it’s more the aftermath. Leaving it playing to itself…or not turning it off so when he runs over it, whilst plays with something else, it starts up again with the most annoying demo song ever and then he just leaves it playing whilst ignoring my requests for him to turn it off.

3) Would you rather be covered in poo or covered in puke?

I fear that if I was covered in poo, I might puke anyway so let’s go for puke then there isn’t two substances. My gag reflex isn’t great so it’s bound to end up in tears anyway!

4) Is Peppa Pig more annoying than Postman Pat is bad at his job? Discuss.

I’m subjected to more Peppa Pig in my house than I am Postman Pat.

Little L doesn’t watch Pat, and thank goodness because his inept skills frustrate me every episode! How that man has not been sacked is beyond me and how he’s never lost Jess, what cat stays to their owner like that furball does?

Yes, Peppa is a total brat but I can deal with that anyway over Pat, I can ignore Peppa, I get drawn into Pat’s rediculousness!

5) What time constitutes a lie-in in your house now and how does this compare to your pre-child days?

These days I’m pretty happy if it’s after 7am when our son invades our bedroom. I get up for work at 6:30, three days a week, so 7am feels like a lie in. Recently I’ve not been sleeping as well so despite not being woken up, I’m usually awake. I make the most of laying in the dark in the peace and quiet. Pre-baby, a lie in would be 9/10am probably. I remember feeling shocked if anyone suggested doing anything before lunchtime – ha ha!

6) What is your favourite swear word or swear word combo and when was the last time you used it?

I don’t think I have a favourite swear word and I don’t think I’ve ever combined two together but maybe I should!

The last time I used a swear word was last night when I called our cat a “dickhead” for puking in our bedroom. I’ve been known to refer to my son as an “arsehole” when he’s been having a particularly challenging day, not to his face, but to the dismay of my mum. Like she’s never called me an arsehole!

7) Tell us your worst ever nappy or potty training experience.

The worst poonami I ever experienced was in Frankie and Benny’s disabled toilet whereby my darling son had managed to poo so much that it had pretty much filled his babygrow from head to toe. He was massively upset by the situation (who wouldn’t be?) and was screaming so loudly that I was sure the whole restaurant could hear. All he wanted was a cuddle of reassurance but there was no way I was covering a squirming pile of poop so I just had to set to attempting to clean him up. I reckon I used nearly a whole pack of wipes and because he was so upset, he was managing to smear it all over the changing table too. Not my finest hour. I eventually emerged and a Mum who was waiting with her child said “Are you okay? That sounded traumatic!” 😂

8) There is no electricity and won’t be for the next week. NONE. After eating the contents of the freezer (assuming you have a gas cooker) what the hell do you do with yourself?

I do have a gas cooker and I’ve never thought of that as a benefit till now. I like to think that I would do crafts n sh*t with my son but I would probably set up camp in a soft play if the weather’s shit and the park if it’s nice. Anything that entertains my son, keeps me happy!

9) If you didn’t need the money and didn’t have a little one what would you spend your days doing?

Oooooh the dream!

I would travel around, seeing the UK and the world. I would volunteer at primary schools, reading with the kids. I would do a cake decorating course and perfect my baking. I would have at least one duvet day a week! I’d read a book, watch box sets, meet friends for lunch and days out, learn new skills! What wouldn’t I do?!

10) What’s your guilty pleasure?

Crap TV!

When the boy is in bed and the hubs is at work I love nothing more than indulging in trash TV: Hollyoaks, Geordie Shore, Ex on the Beach, Say Yes To The Dress, Cake Boss…the list is endless! I get very excited around August/September when I know my weekends will co dust of evenings watching SCD and X Factor – sad but true!

11) If you could have anyone round for dinner, alive or dead, which 3 people would you choose? (NB – If you pick a dead person they would be alive during dinner – you wouldn’t just be dining with a corpse. That would be creepy)

A) Without fail, Robbie Williams. It’s at the top of my bucket list to meet him one day. I adore him and will be at his Heavy Entertainment Tour on the 2nd June – I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen him live.

B) My Dad. He died when I was 17 and I’d love to know his thoughts on my little family now.

C) Philip Scofield – I’m caught between fancying him a little and thinking he’s make a great dad stand in! Such a legend.

12) What is your favourite funny blog post ever (your own, or someone else’s)?

I don’t think I have one specific one! I love BrummyMummyof2‘s vlogs, especially from when she was going to/in Disneyland. I was very jealous but she puts a funny spin on everything and regularly makes me smile, which I appreciate.

So, there you have it, I hope you laughed.
Time for you to carry the baton;
1) Em from BrummyMummyof2 (She’s funny so bound to put an hilarious spin on it!)
2) Matthew from Leeds Dad
3) Stacey from Teaching Mum (who I always tag in these kind of things!)
Copy and paste the twelve questions below into your own blog, or if you don’t have a blog, just do it on Facebook. Or the back of your bus ticket.

Answer them.

At the end of your post, tag at least 3 bloggers/friends who you’d like to fill out the #YouHaveToLaugh tag and let them know!

Add two of your very own questions and remove two that you don’t like as much from the original list – it’s all about evolution.
