The Grumpy Mom Syndrome

23 Oct

Is exactly what it sounds like.

Diagnosis: when you make a joke and your child says:

“See, mum, you can be funny when you want to!”




Horizontal Parenting

15 Jun

What you need:

* one tired parent, in shorts and a tank top

* one bored child

* a set of face paint crayons


The parent hands the crayons to the child with the instructions to use the parent as canvas.

Then the parent lies down on the sofa, and the child starts colouring.

Note: you will have to wash the colouring off afterwards (or not?), but at least you can rest for a few minutes while keeping your child entertained with a creative and educational activity.
