For all the parents who have only just started their journey of raising children, you must start stockpiling now, you never know when these things will go up in price.
One day you will be stranded without them. If you think there is an abundance of these things, you’re wrong. Your children will show you. There is no such thing as too many of the items I should have stockpiled before I had kids.
In my home, it’s a magical mystery where all the toilet paper goes. I’m surprised our toilet hasn’t caused some sort of explosion in the nearby water pipes. It seems like every time I visit the toilet, I’m yelling out for someone to grab yet another pack of toilet rolls out of the cupboard. I should have purchased shares in a toilet paper company.
Baby wipes should be called ‘everything wipes’. If you haven’t had a birdbath with a baby wipe, you’re doing motherhood better than I am. I’m usually wiping out the cooties in my car between traffic stops, cleaning the crumbs out of my bra, trying to make my children look presentable – all with a baby wipe. They are magical things.
Headphones & Sunglasses
It seems my small children just can’t keep their little hands off them. Once I found a set of headphones tied to my office chair. My sunglasses, I can’t leave them anywhere. Children will sit on them, even if you leave them somewhere ‘unsittable’. Then, there are the kids that open them so far up they snap the handles off.
Remember when a tank of petrol would last a whole week? Not anymore. Between school drops, after school sports and leisure, petrol flows freely from my car. Of course, children think petrol grows on trees and my car is a taxi, this is life as a parent.
I’m loving all the new gadgets that come out, Like a selfie stick. I just wanted to be cool for a minute. But no, my daughter broke my selfie stick. R.I.P Selfie Stick , you didn’t want to be a fishing rod, but you were faithful to the cause. You are in Selfie Stick heaven with every other cool thing my children have broken.
So there you have it, you know what you have to do. Build a storage room. Fill it with toilet paper and enjoy peaceful moments on the lavatory without having to scream the mystery question, “Who used all the toilet paper this time?”
