If kids had superpowers, what would they be? Invisibility? Flight? Super strength? These would be the obvious assumptions; however, these are no ordinary superheroes. Let me introduce you to the SuperKids.
It's blogging, but not as we know it. A little tale of how it all started, and the wobbles experienced along the way.
Yorkshire, a bloody wonderful place where people eat tea instead of dinner; say "Morning" "How do!", and "Alright" to complete strangers; often use words like 'fettle', 'mardy bum' and 'bugger lugs'; regularly say a rude four letter word beginning with c and ending with t when they're actually saying 'couldn't (you know the one); a region… Continue reading An Ode to Yorkshire – Nowt Like a Tea (Little Mermaid Style)
The title may have led you to believe this is about little people parps; well you can take a sigh of relief as this is not the case (in all honesty I’m not really convinced that would make a great read anyway). So what do I mean by Tot Trumps? Well you may be familiar… Continue reading Tot Trumps
All I wanted was a cuddle, but instead I got a wriggling octopus with a one word Daddy Dictionary.
Secret Agents might not all have the same ability as Ethan Hunt climbing an 828m tall building, or the je ne sais quoi of Mr Bond emerging from the sea in ridiculously tiny trunks (I may have re-wound that moment back a few times to check where the beach was, obviously), but we all know they’re out… Continue reading Mission Kidpossible: 10 Reasons Why Toddlers Would Make Great Secret Agents

This is in no way related to Heath Ledger or Julia Stiles, no this is my honest take on why having two children can be, well shall we say - challenging. I often look back to when I had the one and there's no doubt about it, it was hard, bloody hard, but if I really think about it I had so much more opportunity to nap and watch This Morning than I do now. Oh how I miss you Phil and Holly.
Men love boobs that no longer defy gravity and give sad fried eggs a run for their money. The bath is the holy grail - a place where no one can interrupt, nag, whinge at or bother you. A no rubber duck zone, only candles, bubbles (of the bath and prosecco type) and chilled anthems… Continue reading 10 Things Mums Wished Were True
I was asked 12 questions by the You Have to Laugh team about the funny side of parenting. Here are my responses.
What do we define as a mother? Someone who loves you and brings you up with affection and care from day dot, a person who has unconditional love for her child, a woman who will nurture and provide for her young? All of these are what you'd expect to be true, however some people out there may have a different view based on personal experience...
There's nothing more I like than to chill out, so I got in my comfies, grabbed a pen and notepad and here we are. After the hustle and bustle of daily life relaxing is one of the best things to do, whether it's sunbathing on a beach with a margarita in hand, or simply submerged in a… Continue reading The Big Chill
Buddy the Elf, what a guy! If the world had more Buddy's in it, it would be a much better and entertaining place. So how can we be more like him?
