Sunday Funday

It’s a usual Sunday in The Madhouse! Like most ‘normal’ people (we are however far from normal). We lounge around in our pjs, having a rather lazy Sunday, breakfast is bacon sarnies and potter about the house till at least 12pm. The big kids are glued to Xbox and you tube,  the TV commandeered by the Toddler so we are watching Trolls for the millionth time. 

Let’s go on a nice family dog walk daddy suggests……Ok good idea! So then we commence attempting to find clean clothes, matching shoes etc. A few hours later we are all dressed and dragged our backsides off the sofa. We’re just about to leave the house but the twins need feeding again and bums need changing. Meanwhile Tommy is running around throwing squashed banana at the walls and squirting juice everywhere! 😩

We eventually attempt to pile in the magic disco bus -the 8 seater minibus I recently purchased to accommodate my brood! I should give it a name it really. 🚌

Strapping a toddler and two babies in takes another 20 minutes. After a lot of swearing and getting in a hot sweaty mess manoeuvring and fitting 3 car seats, getting tangled with seat belts etc the little ones are safely locked in. The big boys are now squabbling and having proper fisticuffs in the back of the bus! Then they make up and are playing some kind of weird game that involves shrieking in each others faces and finding it highly amusing. FML 

We go fetch the grumpy dog 🐢 and he pulls a refusal to enter the new bus! Mr ‘Maddog’ (aka Daddy) picks up the miserable, overweight Jack Russell and finally climbs aboard! By this point it’s nearly sunset, it’s starting to bloody rain I’m seriously losing the will to live now! ……3 hours later than planned But HOORAY πŸ‘πŸ» we have eventually, actually left the house all 7 of us and the dog! 

What is normal to most families, (popping out for a family afternoon stroll) is like a major traumatic experience to us! Still we’ve gotta make light of our manic life or else I’d be crying uncontrollably and quietly rocking in a corner somewhere.

This is just a small insight to a day in the life of The Madden’s ….. by our standards a GOOD day!! Lol It’s all fun and games here 😜 xxx

Tommy, an introduction…….

You know when you go to playgroup for the first time and there always that ONE kid who runs around screaming, throwing things about? That ONE kid who charges around at 100 miles an hour, barging kids out the way as he has no spatial awareness? Then dropping to the ground in a tantrum when told to stop launching the toys ……YEP! That was my boy today!!! πŸ™ˆ
It was MY Unruly toddler who was the naughty one, terrorising the other children and causing a trail of mass destruction. When the rest of the group tidied up and sat still for storytime and singing…. of course Tommy decided he didn’t fancy that. So instead he was climbing on top of the table laughing with glee and arching his back when I tried to get him down!

He successfully managed to cause havoc left right and centre. He also accidentally head butted another child in a small head on collision!😡 (cue a very over protective mother giving me a ‘look’ πŸ™„and rushing over to comfort said injured child).

I think he enjoyed himself thoroughly though!! 😜Same time again next week???? 🀣 lol

……….That’s my boy! And that’s why we call him Tornado Tom Tom πŸŒͺ πŸ™ˆπŸ˜xxx

My comedy life!!πŸ€—

Hello! So……here it is my first blog post. Now where do I even begin?

Ok. Lets start with my big kids Toby & Archie Both are autistic/ADHD Pre-teens and are a right handful! Loveable rogues all the same. Then there’s Tornado Tom Tom..the hectic and very cheeky 2 year old. THEN add to the mix 12 week old boy girl twins Albert & Annie (cause life just wasn’t busy enough alreadyπŸ€”)! ….. and YES we do own a tv!! Lol.

I thought I’d start this blog to record the many comedy moments that happen to us! Some not funny at the time but I like to share and amuse others! I usually have a good old rant on my Facebook status and people seemed to find my musings hilarious.🀣

Happy reading! Xxx
