I would never

Oh would you look at those cherubic faces? Butter wouldn’t melt, obviously.

Naturally that means that our life is utter perfection in every way.

For example…

I’d never let the kids play computer games all morning at the weekends so I could have a long lie.

And I’d definitely never veto the boys’ suggestions for a movie and persuade them to watch one of my choice. That would be selfish!

I’d never order in a pizza because I couldn’t be bothered to cook.

Or make us the same meal 3 days in a row just to make some room in the freezer.

I make all my meals from scratch, OBVIOUSLY.

And of course every day they get their 5 portions of fruit and veg…


I’m certainly not the mum who practically skips with the kids to school on a Monday morning. No, I miss the little dears EVERY SECOND I’m away from them.

Obviously they always wear matching socks.

And of course I would absolutely positively NEVER even *think* of looking forward to them going to their dad’s for a week in the Easter holidays so I could enjoy a languid mid-morning natural wake up.

Nah, not me.

I would never!

    Ha ha love it! Can I add one of mine? I would never keep putting mine down for an afternoon nap in the vain hope he will go to sleep even though I know he is way past needing it just because I desperately need 5 minutes peace!Great post made me giggle.

    I’d never just make jam sandwiches for lunch and put out a blanket and call it an indoor picnic! Though, to be honest, the kids still remember these and not all the healthy meals I DID cook when they were wee… now 18 and 16 so pretty much feed themselves :)A really great post!!

      Peanut butter sandwiches here, same scenario! ;)I simultaneously look forward to and dread the boys being able to be more independent. Will be making sure I make the most of them needing me while I can!
