Guilty Mummy Moments

Let’s face it, we all have those moments when we all just want 5 minutes of peace, or a snack to ourselves or even just a wee in peace! But how far will we really go to get this? We’ve asked on social media and have compiled our top 10 ‘Guilty Mummy Moments’

1. My girls hate onions. there was 1 muffin left. I told them it was a onion muffin so I could eat it all to myself.

2. I ate my son’s last curly wurly the other day and told him it had melted so I had to bin it.
3. I hide ben and jerry’s ice cream inside a frozen pea bag so I don’t have to share with kids!!
4. I put my daughter to bed and persuaded my husband that it had taken me 2hrs to settle her and that’s why he had to do all the housework by himself… infact id been sat in the hallway, whilst she was asleep (had taken 10mins to get her down) watching Netflix on my tablet just so I could have some peace.
5. My daughter is at nursery until 3.30pm each day… I will not pick her up any earlier than 3.29pm so I can enjoy the 30mins of peace after I’ve finished work… in this time I will have something to eat (so I don’t have to share) and go and sit on the loo for at least 10mins so I can have a wee in peace… I sometimes feel bad because she’s always the last one picked up but I need at least one pee a day to myself!
6. I hid a bag of liquorice behind the sofa cushions after my toddler saw and made a beeline for them… This mummy doesn’t share!
7. I tell my daughter that mummy has a poorly tummy just so I can sit on the toilet in peace and play games on my phone.
8. When I’ve had a day of no housework, I tell my partner that I’ve had a really tough day with my son so he doesn’t complain about me doing nothing and does it for me.
9. Every day, after my daughter has gone to nursery, I tell my partner I’m going to the gym but actually go to Costa for a hot cup of coffee and then just get changed into my gym clothes before I see him after nursery.This mumma needs some alone time too!
10. I tell my 3 year old that she has to be 4 sometimes to do things, or that if I’m eating something nice she would find it too spicy.
We’d love to know your best ‘Guilty Mummy Moments’, no matter how sneaky or cheeky they may be!!

Mummy and Baby bears’ porridge

There’s been frost on the cars in the morning and a chill in the air, I can’t wait for the warmth of Spring. But there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy snuggling up in the mornings with a nice warming bowl of porridge, that both mumma and baby bear can enjoy, away from the thieving clutches of Goldilocks.

I wanted to make a hearty porridge that I like and that my toddler would enjoy, which is sweet enough without adding sugar.

I make this amount and there’s enough for my toddler and myself as you can see from the picture.

For this simple, tasty breakfast you will need:

  • 50g of porridge oats,
  • 150ml water,
  • 150ml milk,
  • 1 pot of strawberry fromage frais yoghurt,
  • 1 banana chopped into small pieces

Measure the water and milk and mix. Add the porridge oats and the banana pieces and mix. It’s best to use a deep microwave safe bowl for this.

Cook for 2 minutes in 900 watt microwave or 2.5 minutes in an 800 watt microwave and stir. Cook for another 2 minutes

Stir in the yoghurt when the porridge has cooled down to a warm temperature and serve into your bowls.

Enjoy!
