15 Things.......

Whilst on my recent family holiday to Majorca I learnt A few things that I will need to bear in mind on my next holiday.

  1. Don't give a 2 year old a carton of drink in a crowded airport if he is unable to pronounce the letters r and n properly, or it will result in funny looks from fellow passengers when he shouts at the top of his voice "mummy hold my dik"
  2. Lemon and chamomile shampoo is a great alternative to washing up liquid
  3. Baby wipes work well as a dishcloth
  4. Don't teach your 2 your old how to climb safely into the swimming pool or he may try and do it at 10 pm whilst you are enjoying your sangria at the pool bar
  5. If you get distracted in the middle of packing try and remember whose clothes you were in the middle of getting ready.....this will avoid only taking 4 t-shirts for your messy toddler
  6. A 2 year old can undo a seatbelt on the aircraft even though he tells everyone around him very loudly that he can't.... "I CANT GET OUT , I CANT GET OUT, I CANT GET OUT...... I OUT"
  7. It is possible for a sleeping toddler to fall out of a stationary buggy if not strapped in.
  8. If your apartment door lies unguarded the toddler WILL make a break for freedom whilst you're sitting on the toilet half dressed
  9. Angry birds is addictive
  10. An Iceland sticky toffee cheesecake tastes better in Majorca
  11. It is possible to make a perfectly acceptable 2 course meal for a family of 5 in a kitchen with just a 2 ring hob and a worktop the size of a postage stamp
  12. However many times you say that you won't join in you find the lure of bingo too hard to resist.
  13. The rain in Spain does not mainly fall on the plain.....and Majorcan thunderstorms are pretty impressive
  14. Don't ask your husband to pop to the shop for regular Tampax and expect him to come back with what you asked for.
  15. Befriend families that have children you think will get on with your own kids....the kids will then be happy for you to just throw Euros and food in their direction at regular intervals.

  1. I love this! I just laughed far too loudly at "I can't get out...I out!" and "Mummy hold my dik"

    Everytime I've been to Majorca it has rained......

  2. I'm pleased to bring joy on this miserable Saturday morning! My kids found the drink episode highly amusing too, as did they when Jack wanted some of Sam's thick shake yesterday...."I want to suck your......" well you can imagine!

  3. Haha i think I love your toddler!! Love how he was trying to get out of his airplane seat. My LO is only 7 months but we haven't ventured abroad yet. Centre Parcs next month for a few days!

    I have always wanted to play bingo!! Hope it was a lot of fun.

  4. You can have him if you want.......

    I am liking your list! especially the 'dik' one. As it's all about the new cars film at the moment there are lots of red cars around. Strangely enough he can say red and car but redcar comes out sounding very much like 'wancar' *ahem*.

    Your list sounds like what holidays are all about :-) xx

    I missed out Beastie there, obviously meant him!

  7. haha, they are so funny aren't they...Sam could say rain and bow but not rainbow....sadly not as amusing as 'wancar'!!!

  8. thank have all the amusing toddler comments to come Liska! x

    I expect a lot more 'gems' in the near future too! x

  10. Lol at this some of them ring true for me. I have used shampoo to wash up with many a time! Thanks for the chuckles x

  11. my pleasure!
    I'm usually a lot more organised - washing up liquid,dishcloth, tea towel, I blame blogging!

  12. This is great haha. Sounds like it was an eventful holiday xx

  13. Hilarious, actually laughing out loud. I can completely empathise with points 5, 6 and 11. I am worried about 1, 4, 7 and 8.

  14. It's Mums learn to have eyes in the backs of our heads....and can pull pants up very quickly and sprint down a corridor at the speed of lightening!!
