You know you’ve hit rock bottom as a mum when…

  1. You wake up most mornings feeling like you’ve had an adrenalin shot in the heart
  2. Your keys live in the fridge and the cheese ends up in the dishwasher
  3. You do your daughter’s hair with a fork because you can’t find the comb
  4. You frequently count to three without having any idea what you’ll do next
  5. You have a full repertoire of inconsequential mum phrases such as ‘I won’t ask you again’ (you will), ‘Do as you’re told’ (desperate, begging tone) and ‘If you don’t do that NOW’ (you don’t know what you’ll do)
  6. Your Marc Jacobs is full of crushed Jacob’s crackers
  7. You drink wine before it’s dark or as soon as it’s light
  8. You play hide ‘n’ seek and hide just that little bit longer to get some ‘me-time’
  9. You think you’re clever inventing mock swear words by changing one letter in the original, which your kids (amazingly) soon decipher
  10. You’ve long forgotten how to speak full sentences. Instead. Gormlessly. Utter. Single. Words (and hope others fill in the blanks)
  11. You look at elderly, retired people and envy them
  12. You ask your children what they want for dinner and expect a sensible (nutritional) answer then give it to them anyway
  13. In the evening, you mute TV adverts just to get some peace
  14. You get up at 6.30 AM and go to bed at 9.30 PM with no real memory of what happened in between (good job)
  15. You wouldn’t swap the above for all the tea in China. Now THAT’S insanity
