LOL Round-up: A combination of drunks & fitness fanatics

It’s February, so forget the January funk and enjoy some giggles with these fantastically funny posts I have hand-picked from the blogging world for your amusement.  You can thank me later.

Warning: These posts should not be read whilst consuming any liquid refreshments due to the high likelihood of choking on such beverage when you snort it up your nose.  The same rule applies to peanuts.

So here we go. 5 posts that made me giggle and brightened up my January days.  Enjoy.


8 Signs That You Are Suffering From a Parental Disorder by Life As A Rambling Redhead

I definitely have a parental disorder.  I scored 7 out of 8, and to be honest, the only reason I didn’t score 8 out of 8 was that my husband informed me about number 1, two days prior to me reading this post.  He gets to have adult conversations during the day to ascertain such information:

  1. “You are unaware of what “Netflix and Chill” really means”.


4 Reasons Why Toddlers Are Like Drunks by The DADventurer

My youngest is almost 2 (a fact I am in slight last-baby denial about).  If you were to observe him during the witching hour (that time between tea and bath when all kids turn feral) you are likely to observe him running around in circles, laughing hysterically to himself, head-butting things, falling over and farting a lot.  I could really relate to Dave’s post. 

“Legs appear to be made of jelly and fail to function as a pair. There’s plenty of swaying, staggering and holding on to surrounding objects to support them. Then there’s the inevitable stumble and fall, often with bloody hilarious consequences”.


The Semi pro Diaries of a Fitness Fanatic Extremely Health Mummy by The Confusing Diaries of a puzzled Mummy

I laughed so much reading this post, that quite frankly I considered it my exercise for the day.  Louise details her first trip to the gym, and it’s a perfect antidote for the January blues and waning New Years resolutions.

“Change in to brand new gym gear BEFORE the school run. It’s important for other parents on the playground to know that I’m extremely healthy/fit & spend my days off working out at the gym and NOT lying on the couch eating cheese.”

A David Bowie Tribute: Kids in Cars by Slouching Towards Thatcham

January seemed to be full of such sad news, but Tim really made me smile with his parody of the David Bowie classic Life on Mars.  I mean who doesn’t love a good parody?

“For a while they all played I Spy
Now they’re making each other cry
But no matter how hard we try
All we hear is the constant whine”


Thirty Six, Still Winging It by Five Little Doves

I chose this post because not only did it make me smile, but it took me on a trip down memory lane.  A brilliant and nostalgic read about the things we do that mean we aren’t officially grown-ups yet.

“I can still remember every single word of Do the Bartman, could tell you the play list order of every Bros, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson album and yet, some days, I can’t even remember the reason why I went upstairs.”


I hope you enjoy these posts and they make you laugh.    I’ll be back in march for another LOL Round-up. In the meantime if you write something funny please come and link up to my Friday Frolics linky, or tweet me @lifeloveanddd.  

I’ll leave you with this, simply because I’m still feeling nostalgic.
