PHOTOS AND SMARTARSE COMMENTS

I thought this week for the blog, I would share what my three year old and myself got up to. We went on a few mini adventures over the last week, plus did some boring stuff (craft and playing) at home.

I don’t usually jam so much enthralling stuff *cough, cough* into one week with him – but I was giving no shits about much this week, so I thought ‘LET’S JUST DO EVERYTHING……NOW!’

I am sharing this with you in photo and also (smartarse) comment form.

HAPPY EASTER PEOPLE!

We did craft and made an Easter hat today. It was touch and go with the paint, glue and other horrible craft shit that gets everywhere, but Reeve loved it.

p.s. I made the hat push his ears down like that. Just to give me a laugh after the hard work…….because as I said, craft is super messy (and super, not my thing).

INTERPRETATION OF MUM.

This photo is Reeve being a little so-and-so, and showing an interpretation of myself. Apparently this expression is when I talk/scream/yell/try and get my family to listen to me.

I think he did a pretty good job. I’m so proud of him.

EATING CRAP.

We went to a local festival and ate some yummy crap. This was a definite treat at 9:30 IN THE MORNING!! But it was Easter, and I wanted that yummy crap.

Reeve loved his dutch pancakes for five seconds. Then disliked them. Because, threenager emotions.

So of course, Mummy had to finish them.

POSED WITH A MACAW.

Because, doesn’t everybody? We met our feathered friend at the festival, and Reeve being all heroic and three years old, decided to pat it.

I was in no mood to pat a bird that has a beak the size of Russia, so I allowed my small child to do it. Such a good Mother, I am.

The bird even posed for a photo with Reeve. Trust me, I got a eensy bit nervous with the bird beak so close to my kids eyes. But hey, anything for a photo.

EASTER BUNNY VISITED, AND BOUGHT ME CLOTHES?? WTF?

Yes, I am one of those Mothers. He got chocolate too, don’t worry, but there was also some clothing items. As long as they had the Ninja Turtle print on them, there was going to be smiles all around.

The look on his face is like, ‘WTF Easter Bunny???!! New life on this day is about chocolate, not bloody jocks!!’

NAPPIES IN OUR HOUSE ARE FOREVER GONE!

There comes a time in a parent’s life where you say goodbye to something that has been in their lives since the baby arrived.

The time has now arrived for us.

WE HAVE SAID GOODBYE TO NAPPIES…….FOREVER!!

We are proud to announce that night time nappies are deleted in our household.

Reeve is super happy, proud and can’t stop telling strangers in the street.

No more wiping of bums – only the smile on his face cannot be wiped off.

STICKERS ARE FUN, FOR LIKE 23 SECONDS.

Nanny sent us stickers in the mail. And I was all like, YES! Let’s make Nanny a very special picture that she will cherish forever and be super excited when she receives it in the mail.

But Reeve was all like, YES! I am going to cover my body with them. Making this little exercise that could of gone on all afternoon, into a 23 second task.

Then I was all like, SHIT! Now what are we going to do all afternoon? I was counting on the sticker thing.

“WEEEEEEEEE…….” *splat*

We went to the beach, and stupid me, forgot his swimmers. So he had to go in his jocks, right butt cheek wedgie, and all.

All the other Mothers had their kids wrapped in beautiful lycra swimming gear, protectively covering their little ones precious skin. And all I could manage was his Ninja Turtle jocks (courtesy of the Easter Bunny), and some sunscreen.

So I allowed him to jump off the wall onto the sand with a few splat noises, and the surrounding parents judging was so LOUD! I am still have scars on my face from all the death stares I received.

PARKS ARE SOOOOO BORING.

Public parks.

According to my kid this morning, they’re a bit ‘meh’ and too boring to actually play in them.

I agree, son.

Well, they aren’t too bad I suppose. But Reeve decided to lay down in this one (pic on left), because “…he was bored”. And then going down the slide (pic on right) got a little crazy and out of control for him.

Those crazy and out of control slides, eh?

YEEEEHAAA!

Then we went to Bulls and Bikes show.

It was full of danger, over priced junk food, red necks, and dirt. Everything you need to keep a three year old entertained.

One guy injured himself and was taken to hospital in the first twenty minutes. One guy attempted a front forward flip on his dirt bike, and just made it out alive. One girl was escorted out before the show even started, because she had a little too many vino’s.

It was all very family friendly and stuff *ahem*.

TIRED AS HELL.

And at the end of all the adventures, I woke to find a head in my bed.

Only a head.

It was like the mafia was trying ‘something different’.

But it was the cutest and most tired little head I had ever seen.

How was your last few days as a parent?

Do anything exciting like see people get injured at a dirtbike / bullriding contest?

Do your kids find it hard to ‘handle’ the slide too? Or is it just my kid?

Love (as Reeve says),
Yes_Peas_Mumma_signature

xxoo

p.s. My favourite part of the last few days? Eating the junk of course. And sneaking my kids Easter Egg chocolate. Lucky he can’t count his stash properly yet……MUHAHAHAHAHA!!

Linking up with Essentially Jess for #IBOT

  1. Um – I think your son and my daughter are kindred spirits. Replace the pronouns and you might just be living my life. And of course mummy has to finish the dutch pancakes, the same way I have to finish my daughter’s pudding/cake/fish fingers, hell everything! Because we were brought up to finish everything on our plates and not to rub our wealth in the face of starving African babies. Duh!

    1. Wow. We should meet one day and make our kids play together. Then there will be heaps of junk for us Mumsies to finish ;). I actually brought up the starving African kid thing to my kid just last night. Because, all parents have to at some point in their kids life!

  2. You are a supermum, jesus, Charlie’s lucky to make it to the park once a day. But not lately because he has an ongoing case of bronchitis which he can’t kick 😦 Today I needed to get my step count up on the Fitbit so I just pushed him around in the pram for an hour, the poor kid. To defend myself though, he is barfing up a lung every time he coughs (which is regularly) and don’t get me started on the snot. So I am actually doing a public service to my fellow parents keeping him away from the playground…

    1. Ha! Thanks, but I am no supermum. It was a once in a lifetime situation that we did this ;). Oh poor Charlie! He has had that for ages now hey??!! Hope he gets over it soon. Snot and kids go hand in hand, but it certainly is crappy to go through.

  3. The last few days in our house have been pretty much spent on the sofa with two poorly little ones! Just when I thought we were out of the cold season one last one (hopefully!) has snuck in and wiped them out. Sounds like you’ve had an action packed time recently, lots of fun! x #TwinklyTuesday
