A Mummy's 101

You know that programme on TV 'Room 101'? Well, Emily at Never Bored of Bubbles thought she would start a meme for Mums (and Dads too) of all the things (okay, top 3 things) we would banish to Room 101 forever. After I was tagged by Lucy at LucyLoves I had to get my thinking cap on!

First on the list for eternal banishment are:

Big Buggies.
They are bloody stupid. I'm sorry to anyone who has the car equivalent of a buggy to push their precious bundle around but they are a tad annoying. On buses they prevent anyone else having a buggy on board, or the faff for several other people who have to actually collapse their buggies and cling onto their offspring for dear life because there isn't any room for anyone else. Not to mention if a wheelchair user comes on board...that takes an age to negotiate! I always seem to get stuck behind these things (complete with stressful mother) in some aisle that's too small. Even worse is having them trying to maneuver said jeep buggy into some door I feel I really need to help, it's just unnecessary stress!

Number 2 goes to:
High End Nappies
Millions of parents use them and that's just fine. I personally find them (for my children) useless and a waste of money. I buy value nappies which are brilliant in my opinion. Sure they can be a bit gross when in the morning your little darlings wee has turned the inside to gel instead of the usual puffy cotton but I rarely have leaks and they work just as well. I think the 'high end' nappies really are too expensive for what they are. Crap catchers.

And Number 3:
Shoes for babies.
I'm sorry it's a pet hate. Slippers great. Booties? Cutest things on this earth but baby shoes? They are not soft, they look ridiculous. I think the reason I hate them is because I love feet, especially baby feet and there is nothing like looking at a pair of cute baby feet socks on or off, booties on or off..but when they have shoes on I just don't get it. Yes they're cute, but i think they are cuter off! I may start a collection of mini shoes..How absolutely cool! (or weird?)

I may have lost a few friends there. Please tell me the items you would banish to Room 101 and link up with Emily!
