Things you can get away with if you have kids

As you grow older there’s certain things in life you cannot do now because its frowned upon.

But when you have children a whole new world opens up to you and you can do things that you wouldn’t normally be able to do or get away with.

Here are  my top things you can get away with as an adult if you have children…

Cartoons

Now as a kid we all loved cartoons growing up and thought what we watched was far better than any of the television they has today.

As an adult you grow up and start watching adult films like horrors, action and what ever takes your fancy so you have no time for children’s TV as it seems well…weird!

But when you have children it’s the normal thing to do is get up in the early hours of the morning and put on cartoons, for instance I was awake at 5am this morning and the first thing I opened my eyes to was Paw Patrol.

If I didn’t have older children I wouldn’t have known the program Gumball even existed as I find it highly hilarious!!

Snacking

Healthy eating is one of the things we try to do as adults, to lose some weight for summer or just to feel better but when you have kids this is more tricky than you think.

When you have a hungry 3 year old in the back of the car who has been sat there for a while and been very good you may find yourself treating them to a MacDonald’s…by treating them I mean treating me as I can’t possibly let them eat it by themselves what kind of parent would that make me.

Splashing in puddles

My little one loves nothing more than to do this with his wellie boots and splash away.

We have all been tempted to do this at one point but i’m pretty sure if I was to go out alone and do this now I would be taken away by some lovely people in white coats but whack a coat on the toddler and out splashing we go!

Soft Play

What can I say soft play is amazing, you go in there with the intention of looking after your child for adult supervision but you end up running around like a loon and sliding down the slide while your child watches for the bottom floor.

Yesterday Freddie was invited to a birthday party where its a room full of trampolines and foam pits, of course again Freddie needed supervising as he is only 3 and guess who got to go??

That’s right me!

I spend a good hour flipping, jumping and throwing Freddie into the foam pits that I pulled a muscle in my neck and soon realised I’m getting old.

Having kids has its advantages but there’s nothing more satisfying than just have a cuddle with you child while reading them a story all comfy and warm.
