I'm into my third hour of standing in a field in blazing hot sun watching DD watch a dog fancy dress show. It's awful. Where do I pick up my Mothering Medal?

I wanted to post something positive as the last two days all I've posted is misery. How great are you being recently?

Have you double checked nappy bag? I get smug then realise I didn't pack everything while out grin

That sounds blissful compared to my morning of watching endless football in the rain and freezing wind whilst trying to occupy Dd

I am cooking a roast dinner for 5 plus baby niece and have made a trifle for dessert which is DDs favourite.

daisygirlmac Sun 26-Feb-17 12:15:58

Oh! I made jelly last night as well! If not a medal, at least a letter of commendation?

I'm helping with the construction of an eisteddfod trophy and a carnival float, both Spring in me today and due in tomorrow (they've been with their dad all week). And I have a massive essay to write for uni that I was hoping to be cracking on with. I am Alpha Mother. I got the glitter out.

yousignup I think you underestimate how much of a dog person I am grin

My win was doing dd's gammy eye eye drops on my own when the doctor said it's might be too difficult for me to do on my own.

Not convinced @Vinorosso74 gets a medal for cooking a roast and her baby niece.

SaucyJack Sun 26-Feb-17 12:19:38

Imma need pictures of dogs in fancy dress before I can judge whether you're being U or not.

I took the child swimming, it was packed, the small pool was so full they shut it, meaning all the none swimmers were in the big pool and there was no room to swim, so dd faffed and I was so cold! But she loved it.

Now we are going to bake.

Then I'm going to hang up the good mother medal and plug her into some sort of electronic baby sitter while I clean the bathroom and faff about. There will be wine at some point too...... grin

Vinorosso74 Sun 26-Feb-17 12:21:01

Ooops slight grammatical error there blush

MiddleClassProblem Sun 26-Feb-17 12:21:02
