LOL Round-up: Festive giggles

I think we have another 10 days of Christmas madness where we run round like headless chickens with to-do lists trailing in the wind behind us.  At some point we will remember where we hid little Jack’s main present from Father Christmas.  You know the one that you spent two weeks tracking down and nearly […]

LOL Round-up: I can’t get no sleep

Sleep.  The joke of the parenting world.  The commodity we fiercely negotiate over with our partners.  The thing we miss most from our life before kids.  This month’s LOL round-up is all about the shut eye, the land of nod, the thing that we seem can’t get enough of.  Sleep!   Stage One of No […]

LOL Round-up: Kids are gross

When you become a parent nothing quite prepares you for the amount of bodily fluid about to take over your life.  Wee, poo, vomit, and snot for starters.  It will be on your floor, your walls and in your hands. It will be the topic of conversation between you and your partner so regularly it […]

LOL Round-up: Something to get off your chest?

We all need a good rant from time to time.  Seeing that we’ve just survived 6 weeks of “I’m bored”, combined with labelling school uniform and the dreaded Clarks visit, I think it’s safe to say we all need to unload right now.  This months LOL round-up is all about the rants, from kids, to […]

LOL Round-up: Your summer reading list sorted

Picture the scene… Sun lounger by the pool, sex on the beach cocktail being shaken for you by the rather tasty waiter, and you are ready to get lost in a good book.  But before you’ve read the first page the kids start begging you for ice cream, your mind wonders to when you last […]

LOL Round-up: Kids TV

Kids TV is a wonderful thing.  It has entertained my children through tonsillitis and ear infections.  We would have literally gone crazy without it during the chickenpox captivity.  It ensures my kids don’t starve as I have become an expert in prepping dinner in the time it takes to watch two episodes of Peppa Pig. […]

LOL Round-up: Before kids vs after kids

Did you think that life wouldn’t change when you had a baby?  Is it even possible to explain to the uninitiated just how much things change once small people take over your life?  Some differences we embrace and some we just need to suck it up and have a laugh about it.  One things for […]

LOL Round-up: The one with all the poop

Potty training is as much a right of passage for parents as it is our squidgy bare butted offspring. It’s one of those true “I don’t know how the hell to do this” parenting moments that has us reaching for google faster than Chicken Pox spots. So if you are in the midst of this […]

LOL Round-up: Parenting advice

As soon as you announce your pregnancy, every friend, relative and complete stranger has a wealth of parenting advice to bestow on you. Most of it will be unsolicited, some out dated, some down right ridiculous.  Most of it will be overwhelming and a lot of it can be quite scary.  Occasionally there will be […]

LOL Round-up: Body image

We made it through January and now everyone is feeling a bit ‘meh’.  Have you shifted those Christmas pounds yet?  Chances are you’re feeling rubbish because you caved at the first sniff of a Dairy Milk, or you’re feeling rubbish because you haven’t even sniffed a Dairy Milk for a month now. I have the […]

LOL Round-up: Teenage kicks

Confession:  Teenagers scare me a bit.  Maybe it’s because they make me feel old and out of touch.   The little one and I are often overtaken by large groups of teenagers walking home from school as we toddle along to collect the big one.  More often than not I find myself wondering how they […]

The LOL Round-up: Pregnancy & childbirth

Pregnancy and childbirth is a truly miraculous thing, and not just the bit about something that big coming out of something that small.  But lets face it, pregnancy and childbirth is somewhat embarrassing. I mean it starts with peeing on a stick.  From little old ladies marveling your bump and inquiring about your sex life, […]

LOL Round-up: Back to school

Congratulations!  You have survived the summer holidays.  You made it through the rainy days, the failed crafts, the water fights, the ice creams for breakfast, the late nights and the “I’m bored”s.   Some of us are cracking open the Prosecco and doing a happy dance in the kitchen that our little darlings are going […]

The LOL Round-up Does Politics!

So much has happened in the last 6 weeks in the world of politics that it would be wrong not to reflect on that in this month’s LOL Round-up.  Whilst many of us cried over the outcome of the EU referendum and despaired at the aftermath that followed, what I personally needed was some light […]

LOL Round-up: Parodies & stories

Some people like watching videos of cats.  I split my time between watching videos of people doing dumb things that result in them hurting themselves, and people turning a classic pop song into a brilliant parody. This months LOL round-up is all about the latter, parenting parodies with some re-written children’s stories thrown in for […]
