Out of the Mouths of Parents – Things We Never Imagined Ourselves Saying!
When I found out I was pregnant, I expected and prepared for the ins and outs & the ups and downs…
However, what I didn’t expect was some of the weird phrases I find myself saying to my son on a daily basis! ‘No Max, that’s not a drink, it’s my dry shampoo!’ tends to be the most common utterance, because for some reason he thinks my cans of dry shampoo are bottles of pop… *shrug*.
I asked the mummies in our Facebook community if they’ve experienced the same, and I wasn’t disappointed!

Holly Bergin: No I won’t “grow” a willy when I’m bigger😂
Candice Bridgland: Ooh, what a lovely poo! X
