What I am made of

I spotted this in my google reader yesterday courtesy of, the home of all things geeky and cool.

It made me think (briefly) about what I am made of.

And here is the output from that brain dump:

3.2% domesticaphobe
5.5% sewist/craftist
5.6% photographer
6.1% cook
6.7% ranty parent trying to keep the little darlings in line
11.9% bottom wiper, nose blower, tear drier, convincing sympathetic listener whilst posting on instagram simultaneously
17.2% wife and convincing sympathetic listener whilst posting on instagram simultaneously
43.8% Ninja mummy who would eradicate anyone or anything that came even close to hurting my babies so don't even think about it.

Because the bond that exists between my children and I has got stronger each day, which makes it pretty darn strong considering it was up there in the Strong Things List the day they were born. As much as I moan and whinge about their less-than-perfect behaviour, their bickering and the sea of toys to be negotiated just to have a bath, they are the most important and precious things in my world and they fill my heart (whilst reserving a little bit of space for the Mr).


Joining in with The Gallery and the theme of 'Bond' at Sticky Fingers.


  1. Ahhh so lovely - its true, no matter how much they wind you up and test your patience they are so so special (With a bit of space for the Mr ofcourse :))

  2. You cant fully understand the bond between parent and child until you have children of your own and understand you really would do anything for them


  3. Lovely post... children are the most annoyingly LOVABLE things ever created
