6 Things About Kids...In Pictures

1) Kids aren't exactly the best at Hide & Seek.

I can see you.....

Yep....I can still see you.....

....Now this is just getting ridiculous....

2) If kids are tired, they will literally go to sleep anywhere...

....on the computer table

....on the floor

....on you...propped up by your back as you eat a meal.

3) Kids have tantrums. These can occur at any time and in any place. For ANY reason home, because they took their own sock off a shop, because you tried to pass them a toy off the shelf that wasn't in a ripped box

....outside, because you told them they couldn't eat 3 kinder eggs at once

...on a train, because you set off 2 whole minutes ago & hadn't reached your destination yet

4) Kids are extremely messy

...ironing & folding their clothes is pointless

...and you will quickly learn that certain items should be kept out of reach

....not that keeping things out of reach will deter them

5) If you wait until they are truly ready, potty training can be a walk in the park


...but teaching them to dress themselves may not be as simple

6) Kids like to copy adults, and can often be people pleasers. You can use this to your advantage in a number of ways the dishes

...or perhaps the hoovering....

7) And despite the endless games of terrible hide and seek, falling asleep in random places, the tantrums, the mess and the potty training; as you sit back with a cup of tea and watch the little mites clean up (in a fashion), in their desperate attempts to be just like Mummy & Daddy, you'll reflect on how actually, these mini monsters aren't so bad after fact they're really cute..adorable...they give great hugs...they smell amazing. The stresses of the day will melt away and you'll look at them adoringly...

....until they eat your subway sandwich


  1. Too funny! I love the one on the store floor - I can relate! Thanks for sharing. Gave me a good chuckle looking at all the pics :)

  2. Love this - very funny and so very true! Especially the reasons for tantrums - oh the joys! Good job that they're so adorable at times to make up for it all (especially when they're fast asleep and looking particularly angelic!) :-) #twinklytuesday

  3. Cute photos! Funny and true. I get my kid to do the housework all the time. He loves copying me ;) #TwinklyTuesday

  4. Love this post! Very entertaining and very true! :) #twinklytuesday

  5. I love this- hilarious! I wish our lad could fall asleep anywhere! If he's not in his cot at the allotted time he just stays awake...and hell ensues!


  6. So funny!! We have the same changing unit that is always being emptied of clothes too!! #twinklytuesday

  7. OMG! Loved reading this post haha!! Hilarious and so true hahah xxx

  8. Ha ha! love the photos, hide and seek is pretty easy when the child shouts 'I'm here! Behind the chair' whilst giggling! Great post! :) x

  9. I love the photos, especially the one in the toy box! :)
    Funny and true!

  10. These photos are so funny! So difficult to get a good pic isn't it? - you have to take a zillion just to take one. But I guess it's worth the effort in the end - thanks for linking up to #winenandboobs

  11. Visiting from Twinkly Tuesday

    These are hilarious!!! My daughter is a year and half and she loves imitating! Any time I put the vacuum down, she immediately runs over and imitates the motions (it's turned off) and makes the noise (screaming).
