Sods law of parenting.

Hey readers,

We all hate situations that happen when we least want to deal with them. It happens a lot with my boys and sometimes it begs the question if sometimes my children do it just for the laughs. 

sods law of parenting

Check out the list below:

1. Snot. 

Kids enjoy wiping snot onto your trousers - yep my children do this disgusting habit! You feel that you as an individual are merely there for their convenience to do what they want to you.

2. Early mornings.

Why do children get up at the same time in the morning no matter what time they go to bed evening it does not matter how late they go to bed they still seem to master getting up every day the same every fucking time, sods!

3. Toilet.

When you are just about to leave the home after half an hour wrestling with getting my boy ready, boom he needs to go to the toilet. Doesn't seem to think about time and is very blase in going to the toilet and taking longer than normal just when we need to be somewhere at a certain time. 

4. Attachment. 

When you get round to thinning out the children's toys suddenly they become attached to that one item that they have not seen for months.

5. Falling asleep. 

The moment you arrive at the supermarket the little monkey falls asleep in the car. Then you have to wake them up and be greeted with a mardy bum all around the supermarket, fun times.

6. School run.

Why is it when I try to get the boys to school they take forever, forget everything, and dawdle. Compare this to the normal days when I am more relaxed they race of like Hussian Bolt.

7. Bus. 

When I get on the bus there is always some old dear at the front where I can't run away. They so kindly like to tell me some 'lovely' pieces of advice on how to parent or question my ability to parent. Go fuck yourself you know nothing about me or my situation.

8. Shower.

Why is it when you try to have the fastest shower in the world that something happens? It is either my DS1 within seconds will need a wee even when asked prior does he need to go and saying no. Or an argument will erupt where hubby needs assistance in breaking it up a major meltdown.

9. Cold.

The first day back to school after the holidays you end up getting hit with a cold, grrrrr!

10. Lego.

Every time you always get the Lego out you will at one point stand on a piece of, the little fuckers!

Are there any sod's law of parenting that I have missed that you have experienced? Love to hear your thoughts in the comment section down below.

  1. hahaha! This did make me chuckle.
    It does get easier and kids do love to sleep the older they get. My two would sleep until lunchtime now given the chance. lol

  2. Ha! My son (who nearly destroyed our house when he was a kid) said yesterday that he thinks it's his own son's ambition to level their house before he grows up! So ironic and so funny!

  3. Oh yes, I can relate to some of these. Early mornings is a particular one for me - I have to wake the children when the alarm goes off on school mornings but at the weekends, they wake before it would have gone off! And unsolicited advice is always irritating. Thanks for sharing with #MischiefandMemories

  4. it doesn't matter where we are going or how late we are, my daughter needs to take a long poo as soon as she should be putting her shoes on #mischeifandmemories

  5. The Lego one made me giggle. I was nodding along with them all though especially the last minute loo visit. Someone always needs a poo here right when we need to go to school :) #MischiefandMemories

  6. I nodded along to these! At least I know I'm not alone! Thanks for linking up with #MischiefAndMemories
