My Mummy Confessions

I thought I would share my some of my Mummy confessions with you all, and I'm sure I'm not alone in some of these!


My Mummy Confessions

I don't bother with lunch
Looking after a toddler is harder than I thought! After endless episodes of the Twirlywoos and in between food/snacks and nappy changes, I just can't be bothered to go and make something. If I do go and find a snack, I'll most likely have to share it anyway, so what's the point?! I'll just wait until she's in bed.

I love Asda
Please tell me I'm not the only one who looks forward to getting out of the house and doing the weekly food shop? It's sometimes the highlight of my week!

I don't do ironing
It's not like I hate doing it.. As the truth is I've never ironed in my life and I don't even own an iron.

We're not morning people
Sophie is just like me, we love our sleep! We usually don't get up any time before 9am. Don't judge me!

(sometimes) hide from my toddler
I have been known to hide in the kitchen and grab a quick snack of chocolate buttons (without having to share them!) whilst Sophie is sat at the table eating a bowl of fruit.

Getting out of the door is a mission in itself
I always leave enough time to get Sophie changed, fed and dressed. I, on the other hand end up leaving the house quite hungry and looking a mess.

Baby wipes have multiple uses
Apart from the obvious use during nappy changes, baby wipes are great for cleaning! Who needs a duster when you have a pack of baby wipes handy?!

Dry shampoo is my best friend
Before I became a mother I vowed never to use dry shampoo. However now is a different story! I usually have company when using the bathroom, so Batiste's dry shampoo will have to suffice.

When you're having one of those days
You know when you're having a difficult day and there's been endless tantrums and it's only 11am? You're literally counting down the hours until bedtime, yet when you finally get a break, you don't know what to do with yourself. 

Shopping trips
You go shopping with friends for items for yourself and come back with a number of bags after raiding the kids section at Next. That's when you realise your child has nicer clothes than you whilst you're wearing a lovely top from George at Asda (and most of your wardrobe is from there too).

You miss them when they're in bed
So you end up looking through the hundreds (and hundreds) of photos on your phone you have of them.

I'd love to hear your confessions! Do tell me in the comments below!

  1. I REALLY love ASDA. I don't drive so mainly get shopping delivered but if we're having a frazzled day I like to walk to my local one to stock up on some (completely pointless) bits. A nice walk clears our heads and then we've got a bit of clothes shopping, a bit of mag reading, play in the toy section, the beauty bit (obvs) and a nice treat for the walk home (mango chunks are our favourite). ASDA therapy for the win!

  2. I love this post, I was ticking the list off as I read through! I have only just got the hang of dry shampoo! had rather white roots when i first started using it! blamed the kids for the excessive grey hair!

    We have too many supermarkets where we live but Friday its mummy and Evie day so we pop to Waitrose and I enjoy a free coffee and she has a babychino!

  3. Yes yes yes and yes. All true. Lucky you that your little one loves sleep. Wish my boys did! Love asda clothes too. And baby wipes are used to clean everything around here. Mine are in school and nursery and drop off are always a busy thing. But I do miss them during the day.

    1. Oh no! That's a shame. Sophie hasn't always been a great sleeper but she tires herself out so much during the day now and she doesn't have a nap anymore so that's probably why! Haha baby wipes are the best things ever! xx

  7. I dont tend to iron unless i need too, which i never seem to need to so it's all good. Ive always used baby wipes for everything, cleaning the house top to bottom is so much easier now! #Love2Blog

  8. I don't Iron either, it's a waste of time when I could be doing something useful! I love bedtime also, once Abbie is asleep I finally get some time to myself, although she does still wake in the night sometimes! x

    1. I'm glad it's not just me who doesn't iron! I agree, you definitely need time to yourself too and I don't get that when Sophie is home lol! xx

  9. Hahaha! I can totally relate to going shopping for yourself and coming back armed with baby clothes. Next is my downfall, I love all their baby boy clothes.

  10. Love this list and can admit to relating to most of them! I always come back from shopping with clothes for my 2 children even when I went shopping for something for myself and I NEVER iron!

  11. I defy any mum not to be able to relate to at least one of these confessions! All hail whoever invented dry shampoo. That's all I can say! x x

  12. I do miss mine when they are asleep! And sometimes I skip lunch because I am just too busy, not for any other reason, because I LOVE food! I dont do ironing either :) xx

  13. Love this - after four children, I do not iron - only if essential, and only 'to order' I would actually cry if I did seeing how my children cram their clothes into the draws! And I admit to the sneaky chocolate too! Kaz x

  14. Yep I can relate to all of this! Babe wipes are used for everything. I've gone from being a dry shampoo hater to dry shampoo lover.
