Sometimes I feel like I just need to break up the monotony with a little different material. If you don’t follow This Young Mum on Instagram you’ve probably missed all of these gems as they’ve come and gone.

So for your viewing pleasure and mine, here’s a compilation of the last couple months.

“Just your average day with a couple of temperamental toddlers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Sometimes I wish I could go back to when I thought a four-year-old, one-year-old and a new baby was difficult and laugh at myself. Honestly, just in the time that it took to write that last bit out we had our forth tantrum of the evening. Or maybe it was more like an extension of the third one, a Part II, the second chapter of why Mommy sucks for turning off the TV (because you’re misbehaving).”

“Okay, interesting point and I see where you’re coming from, but it’s still going to be a no from me.”

“Not even like a good dirty word either. It’s like getting lip service from a customer and not being able to stick it back to them.

Right now there’s FIVE loads of laundry staring at me and somewhere underneath them I have completely buried my couch. Which means if I don’t tackle this at least PARTIALLY tonight then tomorrow we’ll all be plopping our butts on the floor for morning coffee and cartoons.

So if anyone needs me, and/or is struggling to find me tomorrow I’m probably going to be stranded at the peak of Mt. Laundry gasping for air.”

“I know toddlers like to argue but..”

“Without a nap, Jaxon turns into a total MONSTER.


As we approach cranky-hour, he still isn’t sleeping and I’m gettin’ nervous that we’ll be facing a tantrum of epic proportions if he doesn’t give in soon. Time to go convince him that he needs one to grow or else he will never turn into the Hulk.”

“There was a pair of hair clippers buzzing in the bathroom drawer yesterday and after tonight’s bath I can definitively blame Archie. He has a little chunk of hair that is QUITE shorter than the rest. So much for growing his hair out a little bit.”

“We’re working on some stuff.

I have a three year old who needs a nap and a two year old who I‘m trying to keep awake until at least 9:30PM. It’s all a part of correcting some funky sleep schedules and bad habits that the boys have going on so it’s for the greater good, but things are getting a little tense in here. If you see smoke, send help.”

“You’ve got cojones, but that’s going to be a big fat honking no from me kid. Go get some Kleenex.”

“He then tried putting it on himself and said, “I want boobs.””

Other than a dozen random pictures of my kids this post pretty much brings you up to date on all of the happenings within our walls. Follow the link posted up above to catch these and more in real time on Insta.

Until next time, thanks for reading!
