Do you think I'm sexy, I mean funny?
Posted Monday 18th March 2013 By Ericka Waller
So I got shortlisted for THREE Brilliance in Blogging awards (Bibs) Thank you so much to everyone who nominated me.
Now I want to win!
Now you know I would never call myself brilliant at anything, except maybe going into far too much detail about my piles, ski-slope breasts, camel-testicles tummy, or poor parenting.
But I really want to win the award for being a funny blogger, because I try to make parenting funny, and I try to make you lovely followers find it funny too. I’ve learned if I take it too seriously bald patches appear on my head.
So I look for the lighter bits. The Malteaser bits of motherhood if you will. I could have lost it that day Thing-two did a poo on the floor of the posh café, but I didn’t. I just said “Oh look, you’ve dropped your croissant HO HO HO”, scooped it up in a napkin, and got back on with my lunch. (Then cried about it later and threw away my handbag.)
And when my nocturnal children keep my up all night, I don’t lose my cool. I just add to my list of hilarious things I will do to get them back one day.
So yes, I put my middle-child in the garden at 2am sometimes (it worked for Fred Flinstone) and sometimes I tell them all hideous lies. It’s true what you heard in the playground, I do let my baby gnaw on a lamb-bone at nighttime, but it’s only because I love them.
And I would love to be able to tell them that they won an award for making me and you laugh our way through this parenting lark. Trust me, they deserve it.
