Today...

... i threw a mummy tantrum...


...and avoided responsibility in every way imaginable. I closed the doors to my bedroom, drew the blinds and sulked under my favourite fruity nanny rug. 

It was bloody brilliant, I should do it more often.

  4. Genius. I kept sneaking off to the bedroom to lay down today. This growing bubba is killing my back. Cohen though was doing his very best not to let me rest.

  6. Best therapy ever, you show them how to do it. Love it when a child storms off in a huff, it's kind of like "thanks, i was just about to ask you to remove yourself" & everyone gets a chance to cool down. Feeling better?? Love Posie

  8. I haven't done that for ages. Maybe it's because if I was to, they wouldn't notice, so there is no point. My 2 boys are head down into lego at the moment, and could run around dressed as a flamingo and they wouldn't notice. The joys of them getting older and I have time to escape and be in another part of the house. Love that blanket... I need some bright colours on my bed! Enjoy your humpf, I'd do a full pedicure and read several magazines whilst you are there! Lou x

  10. Oh sweet lord I am queen of the Mama tantrum! Though my flouncing never lasts long, unfortunately. But it always seems to work wonders when I do it. Love those tootsies peeking out from that gorgeous granny rug. Hope you feel better now :o) xo

  11. Oh Em! You make me laugh girl!!! I'm not sure that I've ever technically tried that... but when I had morning sickness over the past couple of months, hubby changed all the DIRTY nappies 'cause they made me want to puke! I value blokes that know when their ladies need a little respite from the daily grind. :)

  12. Ha, we all need to do that sometimes! I love it for the slight thrill of feeling like you are playing hookey from school or something ;)

  13. I would love to snuggle up under that gelato colored granny rug. How refreshed you must have felt peeling it off and heading back to the fray.

  16. Can I throw one even if I'm not a Mum? I have a Mum, is that close enough? ;)

  17. I have Mummy tantrums too sometimes. I think it's okay to teach kids that we all need a time out sometimes! Better than yelling or losing your cool. xx

  19. I self-impose myself to the naughty chair,.....which is actually my bed and it's upstairs so I go there to give myself a good talking to and have some "time-out"

  20. Good on you! We all need to do this from time to time.
    Love your blanket! Looks very sweet, what a lovely place to chill out in.

    Hope you're feeling back to your non-tantrummy self now. :D

  21. Oh Em, You are my hero!
    I wish I could throw a mummy tantrum but I think my kids would just laugh at me and then ask me to get them something to eat.
    Hope you feel all refreshed!
