Don’t try this at home

Don’t try this at home

Mammy guilt strikes again. I am still too sick to be a good Mammy this week. The best I can manage is to keep Little Man fed and out of any serious trouble.

So mid-afternoon when I was really running out of steam, and I couldn’t justify another minute of Peppa Pig, I had an arts-n-crafts brainwave. I cut up loads of coloured bits of paper and took out the paper glue and a nice Christmas picture.


Then I put some glue on the back of each piece of paper and Little Man stuck them to the page. It was a lovely, peaceful, creative activity for all of about five minutes.


Then being stuck in the house all day started to get the better of Little Man. And he decided he had a much better idea for playing with those pieces of paper.


So in the end, instead of a nice low energy activity like I’d planned, I ended up crawling around picking up tiny little pieces of paper off the sitting room floor. Hmmm. Maybe I should have stuck with Peppa and ignored the guilty voice in my head.


  1. You are too hard on yourself Lisa. Sorry you are still not feeling well. Little Man looks healthy enough. Can’t wait to see him next weekend

  2. Oh Lisa it’s tough work. Jigsaws and connect 4 (but not actually connecting 4 just racing to see who gets all their pieces used up the quickest.)
