Wine times

With WallyBubba at the now ripe-old-age of almost 12 months old, nothing irks me more than sitting in a cafe with my mum friends and respective toddlers, and looking over to see a gaggle of new mums...

There they sit laughing, smiling, occasionally feeding their minuscule tots then placing them back down in their carry cots where they remain for hour long, silent, sleeping stints... As your toddler smashes a rice cake into your hair, eats a section of laminated menu, hurls Sophie the Giraffe at an unassuming pensioner on a nearby table, and finishes by tipping your wine into the buggy as you reach for a baby wipe.

Bloody lucky un-expecting bastards.

  1. They'll learn. When she was 11 months old my daughter reached as far as she could in an Indian restaurant and just managed to bat at the edge of a huge bowl of rice. It flipped into the air and sprayed the entire room with colourful basmati. I was mortified until I realised just how sodding hilarious it was. People were picking rice out of their hair for the next 2 hours.... :D

  4. If it's any consolation, those of us who spend entire weekends freezing our bits off on sports fields quite envy you. The grass is always greener.

    2. Gah I never had one of those babies that slept whilst I was at a cafe! Maybe I placed my baby order wrong?!

      Or I will miraculously avoid toddler tantrums when those with perfect sleeping babies they have now turn into more of a handful? #wishfulthinking

    3. I will keep my fingers crossed it is the latter for you! My baby was so chilled out for the first three months I thought I'd hit the jackpot... Then she went through 'the change' .., and we're all DOOMED... Lol xx
