My Mothering “Some day” wish list

February 28, 2016

My ideal Mothering Sunday wish list as a Mum to small children.

It’s a week early, but a girl can dream.

Humour intended.

  1. A pee in the bathroom with the door closed. In complete silence.
  2. A ticket for one to Hawaii. For a week.Maui Hawaii Beach
  3. Wheetabix to stay wet and not become like cement on the kitchen table by the time I get around to cleaning it.
  4. The TV to be on MY channels instead of POP, Young pop, Junior pop, baby pop blah blah blah
  5. An hour without the Paw patrol theme tunePawPatrolSlower
  6. A clean car free of snotty tissues, muck, sand, left over McDonalds fries.
  7. A car that is sexier than the seven seater minivan we have now acquired.
  8. One morning, just one when everyone uses their initiative to get dressed without seventeen million reminders …” Teeth!” “Uniform!” “Coats!”
  9. My house plants to live past a week away from little green thumbs over watering them
  10. One of those glasses that holds a whole bottle of wine. (You.are.welcome.)
  11. A whole bottle of wine.
  12. My thirty quid shampoo to be used for my hair and not the kids bubble bath or, to float Emmet in a lego boat in the kitchen sink Hard_Hat_Emmet
  13. No sibling fights for one bleeding day. Just one.
  14. A parking spot close to the School gate and not half a mile away triggering “My LEGS ARE SOOORRRRREEE” from the youngest.
  15. My clothes to appear in the laundry more than one in five washes.
  16. A years supply of cheerios
  17. The kids to eat vegetables without gagging or complaining for ONE dinner.article-2553896-1B45985100000578-919_634x414
  18. A clean phone screen minus the finger prints.
  19. To go to a meeting without an action figure in my pocket.
  20. A warm coffee enjoyed from start to finish. No microwave involved.giant-coffee-mug-0
