Motherhood and Making a Tit of Yourself.

Posted by on Feb 28, 2013 in Parenting | 33 comments

Do you ever:-

Realise you have just watched 2 episodes of Peppa Pig yet you are the only person in the room?

Shut yourself in with the safety gate when you are alone?

Spend ages talking to a sleeping child in a forward facing pushchair because you think they are awake?

Or even worse than the above, go out alone on a rare occasion and point out things in shop windows to NOBODY!! ‘Oh! Look at the lovely red car!’, triggering everybody in hearing ranges in-built  ‘Nutter Alert System’, causing them to move away from you at speed while studying their shoes intently?

Forget that poo is not a polite topic of conversation?

Discover that you know the words of most kids TV theme songs, but can’t name a single track in the Top40?

Answer the door to the postman, pass the time of day, then come back indoors to discover that you did that  with your boob showing as you have been feeding a baby and didn’t notice your top was rucked up still?

Point out ‘deer’ to a carriage full of disinterested train passengers?

Cut up food or open crisp packets for perfectly capable adults?

Or tried to grab that adults hand to get them safely across a road?

Have days where you have been out of the house for over an hour when a kindly stranger points out the back of your leg is adorned with stickers?

Mothers insanity Salinger insane

These are the ways my motherhood induced madness has revealed itself in recent weeks. Please tell me I am not alone…..

    Yes! All of this with the exception of the train one – and I find that I tend to watch Small Potatoes or 3rd & Bird on my own!

  2. sabrina montagnoli

    You are not alone!

    Find yourself driving 200 miles listening to Now80 instead of 101 Ace Indie Tunes From The 90s because you forget you don’t HAVE to listen to Maroon5? Yes. All of the above and so many more. Children from 6-13 do that to a person…

    Not had leg adorned with stickers, but frequently with a trails of snot on the backs of my knees looking like I’ve been attacked by snails.
    As for knowing the words to the theme songs, I honestly believe that they are much better than a lot of the stuff in the top 40!
    And humming them while walking through the office trying to figure out what the song is only to realise it’s Iggle Piggle’s intro song.

  5. Kate

    Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes.

  6. Joanne Blunt

    Yes, I’ve done most of those too. I often used to find myself pushing a trolley in the supermarket back and for to rock an invisible child too.

  7. Lynn Fancy

    LOL – Yes! My usual is having a conversation in a supermarket aisle and then realise it’s a perfect stranger I’m talking about the fat content to!

    Friend: “Our washing machine is knackered again!” (Or similar.)
    You: “Oh, dear. I hope it feels better soon!”

  9. Lena B

    Yep, the joy of motherhood. Reaching your blog through social fabric and happy to learn about a new blog in our community

  10. Sarah Pylas (Grenglish)

    YES!!!!!
    Oh my goodness, can’t believe how many of those I do!

    Checking my invisible back seat passenger in the mirror when it’s nursery day… going to the rear car door to get said invisible passenger out… wandering down the baby aisle when I don’t need anything from there…

    Yes! I’ve done all of these! With the only difference that I was on a bus pointing out a ‘moo cow’ to a child that wasn’t with me…oops.

    As a dad, we do most of these things as well (minus the breastfeeding, obviously)

    With older kids, I discovered I realised we’d entered a new phase of our relationship the day when I excitedly pointed out “Look boys! An aeroplane!”… And they rolled their eyes back at me and said, “so?”

  14. Natalilly

    I’ve done ~75% of these things today.

  15. Emily Foran

    All of them and most of them daily, may have 20% pre-children – you’re not alone xx

  16. Kelly

    When in the grocery store without kids (I have raised 8) when I hear a kid call out Mom, I answer “what”. Oh, the weirded out looks from these kids.

    Union job with benefits. Lots of fresh air and exercise. Friendly residents coming out for a chat. It’s GOOD to be a postman.

    • Sonya Cisco

      they certainly get an added bonus at my house. Or having said that- it is not so uch of a treat these days!

  19. Jane

    Brilliant! Just try and resist the temptation to wipe a adult’s face or nose clean with a wet wipe.
