It’s a concealer for all that’s wicked and depraved about your children’s rubbish sleep patterns…
4 Reasons Why It’s Essential To Any Mummy Make-Up Bag:
- It’s mummy’s best friend when the chips are down and the usual, generic (cheaper) equivalent isn’t cutting it. This tends to coincide with a four-week incarceration due to chicken pox, or a two-week family ‘break’. You know the ones. When you return to Heathrow whiter than a snowflake but with really bad fake tan patches (as a result of all the nervous sweat from having two under fives close to open water…)
- It reminds you that you’re an adult who occasionally requires adult things. Same thing applies when purchasing expensive home items. See here. My face has remained remarkably unchanged over the years (apart from the bags), but the rest of me has changed dress sizes faster than a Ferrari shifting gear.
- It makes for a handy weapon. Picture this scenario – the kids are kicking off, you’ve burnt their fish fingers, The SKY Box is doing that funny allergic-to-the-rain-thing and your house looks like Barbie World has vomited all over it. Then your partner calls and dares to ask how your day’s going.
- It mesmerises kids. Thanks to its shiny, gold casing, inquisitive fingers are forever reaching for it. ‘No darling, it’s not a magic wand. But if it buys me five minutes to drink my coffee in peace then be my guest. Just don’t stab your sister in the eye with it…’
