10 Things that are no longer cool when you’re a 40+ Mum (apparently)

1- Trying to keep up with the latest dance craze for example The Dab, Whip Ney Ney, The Floss

2- Attempting to make sense of games like Fornite, Roblox, COD etc I prefer a good old fashioned Mario game on the Super Nintendo me! lol #oldskool

3- Singing and dancing in public to embarrass your kids (tbh this was never actually a cool mum thing to do but ……it’s just so funny to wind them up 🤣) Nursery rhymes, made up songs, musicals and of course annoying baby shark at the top of my voice 👍

4- Writing text abbreviations (and sometimes forgetting what they actually mean) trying get down with the kids 🤦🏻‍♀️

5- Getting tipsy drunk and dancing to a party action song such as the birdie song, cha-cha slide, Macarena etc Not really acceptable as cool Mum behaviour any age but I still like to participate in any case…even if I’m sober Lol One thing I find as I get older, I really don’t give a shit what people think 😊. Also on special occasions, I like shaking my bum in a club like I’m freakin’ Shakira …My child bearing ‘Hips Don’t Lie’

6- Peeking over the top of your spectacles and squinting to look at someone. Also wearing glasses on those necklace thingys …. never cool but very practical!

7- When you no longer recognise some of the youngsters music and have to switch radio stations. Bye bye Capital FM hello Radio 2 lol

8- Talking about pooh size, shape, frequency, consistency is not cool but I can’t promise I won’t do this ….. most of my blog posts involve talking about baby plop💩

9- Wearing thong knickers….. Not for me anyway. Nowadays it’s like a bit of cheese wire cutting into ya cheeks! Nope since birthing 5 kids my fanny needs a break and no chaffing going on down there!! 😳 Its Bridget Jones granny ‘ comfy’ knickers all day long for me. (Soz probably TMI)

10- Saying things to the kids such as “Back in my day such and such happened”

“Less of the cheek or I’ll give you a clip round the ear hole”,

“Chop, chop hurry up”

And my personal fave “Up the wooden hill”

I guess I’m not really all that cool then? 😎🤔🤣😂 Ah well at least I’m a little bit funny sometimes though! 🤪

That’s all for now folks!

Lotsa love L 😘 x

  1. I love this post! I fail to understand Roblox too, or in fact any game. I’m always telling my teen off for texting in abbreviations – these kids just don’t seem to use vowels anymore 🙂

  3. I was a “young mum” and I confirm that these things become “uncool” the minute you become a mum, no matter your age! Haha.

      1. Hey Lucy. Not forgotten the blog crush! Just been sooo busy I’ve not even looked at my blog much lately! I will choose mine and tag them! Only thing is I’m working completely from my iPhone as my laptop is busted and I can’t get to grips with the badge coding and html (like I said I’m a newbie) I’m thinking I probably need a computer to do this bit? Xx
