One of the benefits with having children is the opportunity for many more inspired ideas. Don’t get me wrong, being the genius that I am, I have always been a fountain of invention all of which I can proudly say have come to nothing. However, with kids I have surpassed myself. I have lost count of the number on inventions that have been inspired.
Take for example, the problem of cot bumper suffocation. This worried me with Toddler boy, so, I used cellular cotton blankets tied to the cot to cushion his little head from the hard, hard wooden cot bars. Recently, there was the issue of the patio doors (subject of last weeks blog). Solved with the use of bench clamps. I’ve had the problem of nappies floating around my bag and getting ruined, yes funnily enough this was solved with a bespoke handmade nappy bag to place inside my nappy bag. There are many more gems.
However, a few issues remain unsolved. How to remove the juice stains from the carpet in an ecologically, child safe way. Efficient storage of toys, the issue of smelly washing machine (yes, this is ever so slightly tongue in cheek as I am aware of the product) and how to be a stay at home mum without compromising lifestyle.
If you have answers to any of the above, or in fact solutions to other parenting woes, then please leave a comment below. Not only will you be helping me, you’ll be helping the whole Word Wide Web (if they find my blog that is).
