Did Jess have snacks in our bed this morning? Or is this from the day before...days before? 🤔
That's one thing that didn't cross my mind when having a baby, the amount of weird shit that just becomes normal.
Sleeping with plastic bowls, naked dolls in the sink, crumbs and single swirls of half chewed pasta in every corner, finding dry cereal under your pillow, the duvet, the throw, your foot, in the sofa, in the washing machine, beside the toilet?! Stickers (fucking stickers) growing like mold, doors sparkling with glitter, doors sparkling with lips gloss, realising that all of this is just the tip of the ice berg. An ice berg you don't even realise isn't strange anymore.
I won't touch on bodily functions or how it's normal practise to wipe a tiny arse that's doing her best down ward dog.
Just your standard everyday life 🙄
Secretly, I love finding cheerios under my pillow 😊 it's like Jess is marking her territory, reminding us she's everywhere 👀 although I could do without pulling a cheerio from between my arse cheeks when I'm showcasing my best seduction moves. It kinda kills the vibe.
Still, it's good to have a plentiful supply of snacks to keep you going.
My kids. One wearing winter clothes in 90 degree weather because she’s miss independent, yet often she just “can’t” put on her shoes by herself. The other one trying to eat sand, yet refuses to eat most food lately. 😆 Gotta love em.
Sunday means pancakes for breakfast at our place. Jemma pretty much thinks everything I cook is disgusting but loves this - pancakes with butter and vegemite with a scoop of ice cream and maple syrup. 😂😂😂 #kidsarestrange
Just had an absolute OMFG moment when I found Collins eating pieces of cat food 🐈 ... ‘FFS is that cat vomit?’ 🤢
Luckily, it was just her loving older sister helping her out with handfuls of dry mix fresh from the packet 😬🤦🏻♀️ We all had an extra helping of super chews to sooth my upset stomach! 🍏🍋🥦🍒🥕 I’m so grateful my kids will try anything and have such great gut health😂 even though it sometimes bites me in the ass!
If your kid likes to eat all kinds of ‘interesting’ stuff too, ask me how you can get your kid chews for free!
My thoughts exactly, kid. 🤷♀️ Sweet Ollie woke me up at 3:30 am refusing to go back to sleep, adamantly speaking unintelligible gibberish until I gave in and let him lead me to what he was requesting....downstairs, straight to the kitchen, where he wanted a cookie, banana, and a glass of water. As a good (more accurately interpreted as sleep-deprived) momma, I obliged to his requests. He ate them proudly and then fell into a slumber almost as quickly as he conquered his middle of the night snack. The only evidence in the morning was the chocolate smudge across his cheek and dark circles under my eyes. #kidsarestrange
