Yep, mummy points. They exist and to earn them, as mothers we must do things to earn them.
I know, not only is this job 24 hours, 365 days, all shit and febreeze spraying madness, we also need to earn mummy points, for survival.
Now right now, I am rather lacking on the point earning. Its the barely moving and feeling beaten that makes me seem rather feeble, right now I really could not care less about LalaLoopsie getting stuck in the radiator. Or whether Ariels father is who he says he is.
So my mummy points have slowed a little bit.
Nevertheless, I am not one for secrets, so I will give you a few hints on how to earn said points, in hopes it gets me a little more motivated.
Please remember, mummy points are gained through doing things a little ‘off the wall’ don’t be afraid, because afraid is good.
Your biggest giveaway when hunting for points is smiles, the more smiles, the more you know you are gaining, watch for frowns they tend to creep in, damn kids.
Food, yep. Today I scored a big batch for the dinner I created. It was truly a thing of genius. You guessed it. I made, a Dominos take-out. Garlic bread, chicken strips and chewy cookies a plenty! I also convinced Pops it was in-fact me who had made it and put it in the boxes for the man to bring, clever huh?!
Beboo was a chocolate mess, however both girls were happy. Score.
Next is trips. For me, I hate going out, so the trick with this is to
fool get another member of the family to do this. Today it was Husbands turn, he was delighted to be going to the playbarn. As was the 4 year old, she was well chuffed with my suggestion.
My last hint, because I am tired, is stuff. Stuff is great, I love stuff. Having a good day and feel like upping the mummy points that little bit more? Then go to the shop and grab a toy or sweets, keeps them happy for ages. Yes, spoilt children are really vile, however when all you need right now is five minutes for a cup of tea or even a full on cry, the promise of a small plastic thing is really one to behold.
So, as for spending, I like to think a nice sleep, meal without sneeze on it or the TV during the day for a whole hour is a great way to spend some of these points, plus you could throw in no screaming or random deadly farts too. Makes for points well spent.
