An all time low…


 I’m coming to realise part of my hatred for Peppa Pig may be due to jealousy.

Yes, really.

Yesterday, in 30 minutes of episodes alone she:

  1. Went to the theatre
  2. Went to Italy on holiday 
  3. Saw her friends and ate biscuits and juice.
  4. Went to a museum.

That’s not just out. That’s OUT out…and she doesn’t even say thank you to Mummy or Daddy pig. Rude.

In my equivalent 30 minutes I:

  1. Changed a sh*tty nappy.
  2. Found a missing sock that had been missing for some time (height of excitement being able to reunite that with its sock sibling again…)
  3. Emptied the dishwasher.
  4. Loaded the dishwasher.
  5. Cleaned a smashed up Fondant Fancy off the tv cabinet and a Thomas the Tank engine train (yes, the toddler has been at it again!)
  6. Emptied the bins.

So, as you can see, i would say that in a game of “whose had the most mundane and tedious day” top trumps, I’d probably win.

    Oh you’ve started an entire downward spiral of my day. I’m now wondering about all the cartoon characters that lead more exciting lives than me…Dora, Thomas, Mickey, every member of the Paw Patrol, Shimmer and Shine (I mean they are genies for crying out loud). It’s just depressing really. On the bright side, I kept 3 tiny humans alive another day…

    Oh good point – she does have fun. & quite a lot of cake! But don’t feel jealous – she can’t see any of the fun things she is doing if they’re on the side where she has no eyes!

    To be fair, although I’d love to do all those things without kids, the theatre and museums are my idea of hell with kids! And isn’t Peppa supposed to be about 4? Mummy and Daddy Pig are very brave in my opinion! Although Italy, you’ve got me there – I could do Italy…
