Wicked Wednesdays: this what real parenting looks like!

As I am sure you are aware the internet in packed to bursting with photos of adorable children in cute little outfits hugging each other or their parents or some other cute thing like a panda or something. There are also a lot of food pics doing the rounds. These I have less time for. Unless you’re posting the recipe I don’t want to see how much more effort you’ve made than me on a Tuesday evenings. Sozzers. Anyhoo, generally, there’s a lot of ‘I love my life’ imagery going on. Not that this is a problem, it’s just it’s not exactly representative! (see also this fab post by Hurrah for Gin on pinterest)

So, the very talented Brummymummyof2 has thought up a clever little linky (no, I had never heard of one either, google it) called Wicked Wednesdays (hashtag, natch). One day a week we are challenged to post the pics that show the grimier side of this whole childcare lark. And yes, I know I have already posted pics of my wobbly thighs and Bubs’ newborn-old man hands but, you know, this fun! So this week I’m getting involved with a couple of photos (I almost called them a ‘series of photos’ but then realised there’s only two and I’m not a pretentious arse):

Photo 1 depicts Bubs having discovered and pulled down one of my not-so-nifty changing table baskets.

Photo 2. Well, you get the picture.

As this is doubly wicked because instead of immediately removing the cotton buds from his grasp I took a photo first. And I’m not even sorry. Boom!

  1. Oh! That moment the cotton buds go is the worst (Okay, I know there are many much worse things in the world actually). You know they’re done for, but you try to catch them in mid-air, making even more of a mess in the process. Then there they are, laying in a tangled mess all over the floor. It’s like playing a game of pick-up-sticks to find the ones that haven’t touched the floor and are salvageable. Or… maybe that’s just me….

  2. Yikes! Cotton Buds just fly everywhere, no stopping them even if you try … as for eating them! Looks like he gave them a good try! Very funny xx
    And yes, this linky does show day-to-day in all its glory!
