Questions I often ask myself now that I’m a Mum

Questions that go around and around in my head now that I’m a Mum. Can you add any to the list? Let me know! 
How long can I leave her staring at that stranger sitting behind us before it gets uncomfortable? 

Can they tell that she’s just wet through her nappy and now it’s all over me?

Where’s a baby change? Can I get away with changing her nappy here?

Did she just swear? 

If I cut this sandwich into the shape of a horse will she eat it? 

What am I doing?

Do I have enough nappies? Wipes? Change of clothing? Juice? Toys?

Can I bear to listen to If You’re Happy and You Know it again?

Is she going to hit him/her?

When will she go to sleep? Will she go to sleep? What if she is awake ALL NIGHT?

How does that Mum get her kid to stay in the trolley?

When did I stop caring about the stains on my carpet?

Did I just fall asleep?

Why are people so fricking LOUD?

Is it normal for her to stick pretend money down her nappy?

Is it bad that she doesn’t drink water? Unless it’s bath water?

When did I stop wearing proper (not pyjamas) trousers? 

When did I last shave my legs? This year???

Has she eaten enough?

Is she teething or just miserable?

Is it too early to drink Gin?

    Hilarious! Yes, the classic ‘how long can I let her stare at strangers…’ Recently updated for us to ‘is it okay to let her show strangers her shoe?’ (&, no, that should not be plural – she was showing just the one) I also have ‘how many raisins is excessive consumption?’ I still don’t know, but I’m fairly sure we’ve exceeded it.

    Loving these – glad it isn’t just me that wonders why people are so loud (esp at naptime!). I’d also add ‘can I eat this without them seeing me’, ‘what are they whinging about now’, ‘if I ignore them perhaps they’ll go back to sleep or he’ll get up with them’…. I’m sure there’s plenty more if I really thought about it!
