We all know that we will need to learn to teach our children, wipe their bums and help with their homework but we never thought we would need these
We try our best to follow the latest nutritious recipes but if we could concoct something ourselves with no instructions – now that would be impressive!
Missing buttons, broken zips and fallen down hems; don’t you wish you’d paid more attention in home ec!
There’s nothing cuter (or warmer) for newborn babies than handknitted outfits – but all the hard work shouldn’t be left to Grandma!
When we left our school choir we thought that would be the last time we’d be forced to sing anywhere other than the shower… How wrong were we! Babies love to be sung lullabies and toddlers love nothing more than for you to sing along with Taylor Swift. If only we could hold a tune!
Our gardens used to be used solely for barbeques but once you become parents you spend every minute that it’s not raining outside. It would be nice to be able to admire a landscaped garden rather than settle for a couple of pot plants.
Painting is a lovely (but messy) hobby for young children. It’s tempting to grab a brush yourself and attempt your own piece of artwork; the embarrassing part is when our efforts are worse than our kids…
From dolls houses to playhouses, from a chest of drawers to a climbing frame. If we were handy around the house and the garden we’d be making pieces ourselves that would normally set us back hundreds.
Although we might be a whizz at taking pics on our phones; nothing beats a professional set of prints. It would be lovely to take them ourselves (and our wallets would be grateful too).
Our child’s birthday is the highlight of the year but coming up with a theme for a party and executing it is more difficult than it sounds. To do something Pinterest worthy that lived up to their expectations would make our and their day.
We get through quite a bit since we’ve become parents; making it can’t be that hard can it? Might mean moving to a warmer climate though…
