Play Don't

Play don't - i regret bringing play doh into our house

I could write a long post about the difficulties of looking after two children. 

Maybe one day I will*. Things you may take for granted when there's just the one, like spending all day feeding, going back to bed straight after breakfast, or even just taking twenty minutes (and the rest) to get your baby to take a sodding nap become a challenge when you are also trying to keep alive and entertain a strong-willed toddler.

The best way I have found to deal with this is out and out bribery; new and exciting toys, episodes of Peppa Pig, and snacks. I am somewhat fortunate that as two year olds go, mine is fairly sensible. She's unlikely to swallow anything deadly or crayon on the walls (at least, it hasn't happened so far). However there is one thing I deeply regret bringing into our lives.

Play doh.

Is there a mum out there who actually likes and encourages play doh? I say mum as, being dreadfully sexist, it doesn't seem to concern dads as much. They're probably not the ones picking it out of hair, clothes and carpet.

Here are some pictures from this morning's ill advised 'mummy's feeding and getting the baby down to nap' session. If you're a mum to a toddler and they don't make you twitch, then quite frankly there's something not right with you.

Those of a nervous disposition look away now. You have been warned.

  1. Oh god, the colours are all mashed together... I can't handle that! It actually make me feel funny :-/

    Brilliant cheese on toast, though :)

  2. I won't let them open more than one tub at a time... Mean?


Totally agree? Have irrational rage? Please leave me a comment! I love to read them.
