The latest craze

Christmas decorations are now

This year’s must have toy.

I predict a frustrating 

Festive time ahoy. 🤨

Toddler took some off the tree,

Then they took down some more.

Now every day half of them end up

Lying on the floor. 🙄

So if you’re looking at our tree,

The bottom’s kind of drab. 

But if you hold your hand up then 

The top two thirds look fab. 😂

Advent

Yesterday was brilliant, as

The time was finally here,

For toddler to get an advent 

Calendar this year. 😃

We got them to find number one.

They opened up the door.

Then, once that door was open, they 

Wanted to open more. 😬

We tried explaining how it works,

But, funnily enough,

They didn’t understand, then they 

Went in a massive huff. 😂

Technojoy

What did parents do before 

They had technology?

How did they deal with epic tantrums,

Whilst in Sainsbury’s? 😱

I don’t know what my parents did

When I was being a dick.

For tantrums in a public place? 

A tablet does the trick. 😍

So part of prepping for our flight 

Will definitely be,

Charging both the iPads up,

And a spare battery. 😂

Black Friday

Black Friday? It can eff off. I

Don’t care how much you save.

The thought of going to the shops?

I’m really not that brave. 😝

Add a toddler to the mix,

Now that would be self harm.

Those queues? You’re kidding me, I’d rather 

Chew off my own arm. 😬

In fact, I rarely go out shopping

Now I am a mum.

All my stuff’s from Amazon.

They are my new best chum. 😍

Making the most of it

This week’s going swimmingly,

I must have been so good.

Toddler’s being well behaved 

And eating all their food! 😇

Today, they helped me tidy up,

When they had made a mess.

They’re saying please and thank you all the 

Time. I am impressed. 😊

Could we be so lucky, and 

This could become the norm?

Or is it more likely to be

The calm before the storm? 😈

Happy New Year?

This New Year we’re being brave.

We’re going to take the leap,

We’ll either have a brilliant time,

Or crumple in a heap. 😬

We’re taking toddler on a plane.

We’re off on holiday!

I can’t decide if it will be

A nightmare, or okay. 🤔

So if you guys have any ways 

We can reduce the pain,

Please pass me any useful tips

You think will keep us sane. 🤪

The home straight

My course is nearly finished now.

I have one week to go.

And then I’ll need to find a job,

Become a UX pro. 😊

I’ll really miss my studying.

I have loved every stage.

But it is bye bye student life,

As I must earn a wage. 🤑

However, when I’m qualified,

What I will miss the most 

Is being in the house full time,

And toddler being so close. 😩
