Slummy Mummy Confessions

I don't think I'll ever be a yummy mummy but I certainly have had some slummy mummy moments!

So here I am, cleansing my conscience with some confessions:
  • On more than one occasion when I've noticed a dusty area I've grabbed the nearest teddy bear and used it to dust with. A quick tap afterwards and the teddy is left dust-free.
  • I use the tumble dryer to get creases out of clothes rather than iron them.
  • Once I forgot to put the tooth fairy money under N's pillow, needless to say we had a very upset little girl in the morning.
  • I often buy handmade cakes for the school cake sale and pretend that I made them.
  • A couple of times, when we've been running late, I've forgotten to give the kids breakfast so have grabbed some biscuits/crisps for them to eat on the way to school.
  • Once I didn't notice that I'd used mouldy bread for T's marmite sandwiches so he took a mouldy lunch to school.
  • I spray the armpits of T's PE t-shirt with deodorant instead of washing it for his next boxercise session a couple of days later.
I'm sure there have been many more slummyisms in my world since having children but these are the ones that really stick out in my mind, I guess they're the ones I feel most guilty about. 

Have you had any slummy mummy moments or are you 100% yummy mummy? I'd love to hear from you!

  2. Ha great list, I've definitely done the teddy thing before! I also use wipes to clean clothes that I thought were clean until they had them on, the effort of changing a wriggly one year old outweighs the desire for them to be spick and span

  3. I forgot the tooth fairy money once - never again! I had to say that she came but she couldn't find the tooth so she didn't leave the money. we tried again the next night! #TheList

    1. No it's definitely not something you'd do twice, the drama it causes is just too much to bear!

    1. Haha that's brilliant! I very rarely use one, there's not much point when the tumble dryer does it for me :)

    1. We certainly can't, the perfect mummy moments have become more rare as the years have gone by and our child numbers have increased lol.

  7. I can see myself doing all of these, I clean everything with wet wipes! My husband once asked if I'd have time to start doing the ironing once I was on maternity leave - ha! X

    1. Welcome to the 'I don't iron' club! Although maybe it should be 'I don't iron and use wet wipes for everything' club haha.

  9. The tumble dryer thing is so easy though! I miss my tumble dryer now that I'm in a tiny flat. I usually don't bother ironing anyway but some things NEED it and I hate not being able to whack them in the dryer.

    I leave a duster on the windowsill at all time so that I don't have to go looking for one if I spot a dusty patch :)

    1. Now that is good thinking. I'd do that if I didn't think little one would get hold of it and chew it. Living without a tumble dryer just doesn't bear thinking about, I would miss it too, desperately!
