#effitfriday – 25th November 2016

Happy Friday everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving to anyone celebrating yesterday we went to our first ever Thanksgiving with some new friends where I got to try Pumpkin Pie.  I was not a fan, give me a Pumpkin Spice Latte instead please!

So anyway, it’s Friday and you know what that means here on Life with Baby Kicks – #effitfriday the ultimate rant linky party is back for all things ranty.   Any rant big or small is welcome. Funny or serious it doesn’t matter, all that matters is that you got it off your chest when you wrote it.

My #effitfriday Rant

Often my blog posts are inspired from talking with friends as well as life in general.  One, long ago, sunny champagne Tuesday in London we went to stay with old friends who have a little boy who is a similar age to the Baby.  While the boys went out to catch up in the pub, the girls headed out for takeaway and champagne in the garden while all the little ones slept.  For 30 minutes at a time.  We were like jack-in-a-box up and down the stairs.  In between all of this talk turned to being a mum as it generally does.  I was one of the first of my friends to have children and now I have two.  We lamented on how we expected it to be difficult, to have tough days, to have little to no sleep.  We spoke of the fact that whilst we were so lucky to have these beautiful children upstairs, that the good mostly outweighs the bad, that we knew being a mum would be hard, but we didn’t think it would be this hard.


My #effitfriday Rant of the Week

Thank you all for linking up last week I loved the variety of rants that I was able to read from park life to girls ruling the world (or not) and chore hatred and James Arthur (who is he?!)

This week my rant of the week goes to Emma and Family.

Emma wrote a post that resonated with me about the brat at soft play: when can you tell them off.  I am generally fairly relaxed and mild mannered but you go near my kids I am a total Mama bear.  Coupled with the fact I hate rudeness and big kids in the baby zone means that I think nothing of telling off other peoples children if they are not around to do so (which is a whole other rant…..)
