10 Things I Learned as a Parent This Week (#49)

Forget beautiful sunsets or snow on Christmas Day - my favourite sight in the whole world (even more than my kids themselves) is two empty plates at the end of a meal. (What this pic doesn't show is the rest of the food all over the bastard floor...)
1.Toddlers never run out of fresh creative ways to twat their head into stuff.

2.Applying logic to a child is as pointless as applying sun cream to a piece of toast.

3.Using the bathroom in our house feels like that bit at the safari park when the baboons jump all over your car.

4."Don't dip your spoon in someone else's porridge" sounds like a filthy euphemism.

5.Toddler's moods are like the British weather: constantly changing, hard to predict and guaranteed to ruin a picnic.

6.I spend my entire time at soft play areas ensuring my children don't attack other children.

7.Your child doing a nuclear-level shite as you've just handed them over to your partner on your way out the house feels like a lottery win.

8.Tesco pull up nappies are just leaky hot pants. Terrible.

9.If you accidentally kick an open, shitty nappy at the correct angle it glides across the floor like a hockey puck.

10.Fellas: it's not 'babysitting' if it's YOUR kid.

As a mother of a seven-year-old and a two-year-old, all of this is true.
Nothing like toddlers to teach us the limits of our patience! You did a great job.

Happy National Handbag Day! We founded this day four years ago to celebrate not just replica handbags bags, but also you, our readers, who visit us every day and make our jobs so fun. We love discussing fashion with you and feel lucky to have built a community full of such knowledgable, dedicated, kind women (and even a few people who aren't women!) over Blog's decade-plus lifespan. You know as well as we do that not everyone gets the whole replica handbag uk thing, though, which is why we thought it'd be a good idea to enumerate some of the reasons we hold them so near and dear to our hearts. Add your own in the comments! Most things in fashion are impractical: ball gowns, sky-high heels, anything trimmed in fur or feathers or intended to be worn to specific types of parties. Bags, on the other hand, combine the luxury of those ideas with the necessity of everyday use and practicality, which makes them a special place where high-end fashion meets real life. Mints, Tums, hair ties (in addition to the one on your wrist), bobby pins, four lipsticks, the nail polish you brought to your most recent pedicure, Band-Aids, a Kind bar, ibuprofen, a Tide pen--the list of what's bopping around in the bottom of your everyday bag is probably endless. A good bag, no matter what it looks like or how much you paid for replica mulberry handbags, is like your own personal pharmacy and tool kit. Forget the Boy Scouts; it's women who are always prepared. If you spent $2,000 on a gorgeous cocktail dress and wore it three days, people would start to worry you were living out of your car in order to buy the occasional designer frock. If you spend the same amount of money on a bag, you can use it literally every day for years, and not only would people not judge you for it, but your great bag would simply become one of your aesthetic signatures. Not all bags are going to stand the test of time when it comes to giving them to your daughters or granddaughters (and not all of them need to!), but classics like the breitling replica, Christian Dior Lady Dior and nearly anything Herm├Ęs makes are safe bets to pass on to the next generation. Plus, since they're bags, you don't have to worry about the person you're giving them to being a different size.
