At the beginning of this week I pulled on my ’09 sixth form leavers hoody, I have officially run out of clean clothes. Yet my daughter remains immaculately dressed with her wardrobe fully stocked…how is it that the only member of the family who leaks poop on a daily basis has the most clean clothes? That’s love and some poor laundry skills.
It’s now the end of the week and here I sit in the same darn hoody with it’s plethora of questionable stains that tell the story of our week…
The Snotty Shoulder
Florence has had a full of snot fest this week but Mummy has found some fab tools to help battle the bogies. I read horror stories of mums sucking snot our of poor tikes noses when they were bunged up but you don’t have to! Get one of these beauties; the Snuffle Babe Nasal Aspirator. Stick one end in your babes nose and suck through the tube, there’s a filter that catches any goo and it’s oddly satisfying! They work a hundred times better than those bulbous nose suckers and although we’d do anything for our wee ones, no one wants to suck someone else’s boogers unless the occasion really calls for it.
Secondly the Calpol Vapour Plug & Nightlight, if you have a nose you NEED one of these. Plug it in, let the room fill with the magical decongestive vapour and prepare to breathe! It even helped my man’s snoring, enough said.
The Orange Splatter
We have begun our weaning journey. My question is this; why do so many vegetables have to be orange?! Combine carrot puree with a chesty cough and you will get some horrendous vegetable style spray tan. If you wish to face this humiliation in public Florence and I would highly recommend the Nuby Squeeze Feeder for weaning on the go. Fill it with your homemade purees and you’re off.
The Poo Sleeve
When I pulled this hoody on for the fifth (and final, I promise!) time this week I wondered why I had turned my cuffs up so many times. Then I remembered; poo sleeve. Somehow Florence had managed to kick poo onto my sleeve, not once, but twice this week. You might’ve thought I would have slung the jumper in the wash after the first time. If your child is at the stage where they like to put their hands in the contents of their nappy then this is for you; Kinder by Nature Mucky Mitts Hand Sanitiser from Jackson Reece. I had no clue they even made baby hand sanitiser, a very exciting find for the OCD amongst us!
So that concludes the stains on my jumper and the tip bits of our week, time to put a load of washing on.
