everyones child has a toy called sophie....

I don't want to talk about baby food and really don't care what kind of bloody pram you have got.

How can that 'Yummy Mummy' bag be any compensation for not being able to carry a proper handbag anymore..

'would you like a drink'
'I'd love a coffee..'....
.'yes we have some de-caf,'
(I don't want de-caf I want fucking caffine you cunts)

I agree. I completely avoided the yummy mummy thing.

fanjofarrow Thu 07-Nov-13 18:40:40

You are not being unreasonable and are deffo not alone! grin

ILetHimKeep20Quid Thu 07-Nov-13 18:40:50

That Sophie is so lame and screams desperation!

BadgerBumBag Thu 07-Nov-13 18:41:52

Love Cath Kidston but what is with the decaf!!!! Grrrr

ToriaPumpkin Thu 07-Nov-13 18:42:47

My son hated Sophie. Really couldn't abide her. I failed at the first yummy mummy hurdle!

ViviDeBeauvoir Thu 07-Nov-13 18:43:43

grin @ 'I don't want de-caf I want fucking caffine you cunts'

And YANBU.

Oh god, who is this Sophie? She sounds like a twat.

ILetHimKeep20Quid Thu 07-Nov-13 18:45:00

She is the smuggest giraffe ever to be.

Geckos48 Thu 07-Nov-13 18:45:02

On the subject, who the fuck is Cath Kidson?

LonelyGoatherd Thu 07-Nov-13 18:45:57

I love Sophie. I love caffeine. I love <whispers> some Cath Kidston designs.
I hate that yummy mummy bag, and talking about prams and weaning makes me want to weep. That's why I'm on MN all the frickin' time!

Phineyj Thu 07-Nov-13 18:47:47

Sophie is quite satisfying to smash on hard surfaces, let's be honest.

YANBU, I would have died without caffeine and I had to get decaff in for those kind of people's visits!

OP, you may want to avoid Southwold. My colleague described it as 'Cath Kidson-on-sea' grin

PoppyWearer Thu 07-Nov-13 18:50:58

I am 1000% with you. Those Yummy Mummy bags are hideous beyond belief.

WTAF is the point of decaf coffee anyway? Why bother?

BEEwitched Thu 07-Nov-13 18:51:29

I googled Sophie the Giraffe and was fully prepared to tell you that YABU because I love giraffes but holy crap, what a hideous thing! How can you possibly stuff up making a cute toy giraffe, FFS?

I was considering Cath Kidston wallpaper in my new kitchen and decided against it, too twee by far.

Elsiequadrille Thu 07-Nov-13 18:53:00

Don't mind the other stuff so much. But talk of baby food and prams - do bore off!

Oh! That vacant eyed 60s toy?!

I do quite like Cath Kidston I must admit.

But my blood is 78% caffeine. And I find cake too yummy to be "yummy".

anonpost Thu 07-Nov-13 18:54:13

Hey, leave Sophie out of it! My friend bought DD one back from Paris, best teething toy ever!!

The rest of it I agree with, yummy mummy bags are naff and decaf coffee is pointless.

Elsiequadrille Thu 07-Nov-13 18:55:16

I drink decaf, with rare relapses, but was for health reasons (IBS - pains were only symptom) which has been miraculous almost.

anonpost Thu 07-Nov-13 18:55:17

Oh and Cath kidston is a load of twee crap..so over the vintage/shabby chic.

ILetHimKeep20Quid Thu 07-Nov-13 18:57:22

Emma Bridgewater seems to be next in line to the covering stuff in polka dot crown

mortuusUrsus Thu 07-Nov-13 18:57:45

Sophie is hideous and my DD loves hers, the fecking bloody traitor. <hides Cath Kidston purse>.

mortuusUrsus Thu 07-Nov-13 18:58:20

Emma Bridgewater's already been and gone, unless she's going to have a second boom. Bladdy cah.
