Porky, but not Pregnant.

There are moments in life when only a three year old can ease the tensions in a situation.

On Saturday we attempted to buy the tapware for the bathroom renovation. Mr H had allocated a budget for the taps and was hoping to stay within a few dollars of this tight budget.

We started arguing discussing the tap issue and the salesman raised his eyebrows and silently crept away.

I couldn't understand why Mr H wouldn't be buying a mixer tap. He was stuck with wanting two old style taps for the shower.

As we argued talked between clenched teeth, Immy and Popps were rolling eyes about how bored they were and then Immy walked over, patted me on the tummy and said "Wow, Mummy is having a baby, look Mummy, you are having a BABY!"

Mr H simply buckled over from trying not to laugh out loud. I do believe I saw tears in his eyes from laughing so much.

Conversation over. Mr H could no longer look me in the eye without hysterical laughter.

We soon left Bunnings minus any taps or toilets and headed to the next bathroom wares distributors on the list. Mr H silently choking on his own laughter still. Two hours later and we had everything we needed.

The taps were only $795 over Mr H's budget, so, um, guess who's laughing now...yes that would be me (otherwise known as porky but not pregnant, belly).

If you need me anytime soon I will be either consoling myself with a packet of tim tams or attempting to run around the block to lose this belly.


(There is no image to display on this post, it would need to be either taps or tummys, so, nothing to look at here, move along.)

  1. I am laughing. But it's at Mr H's expense. Not yours.

  4. Last week Mr. T was sitting on my mum's lap in church...on the top of his voice he said "you got too many boobies on your fat tummy" as he was poking her in the tummy roll. I think even the priest stopped to take a look!

    1. Hahaha, I think the joke will be on her. Remind her when she's had her first child, that she only has ten more to go, lol.

  6. My mate Kevin McCloud would highly approve of your overspend on taps. Bathrooms and anything you touch constantly are worth the money (says the groupie).

    1. I should probably know who Kevin is, but ummm, never heard that name. Shall go google it and educate myself. But I agree, some areas need the extra quality and thus the spend.

  7. Ha! Love it.
    A few weeks ago I was trying my hardest to act professional and vaguely stylish and impress a photographer we had shooting us here. All of a sudden my 8 year old did the very same pat and announce. There went all of my cool, calm and collectedness. Let's just say I'm terrified to see those pics when they are released.

  8. Oh god, this has happened to me more times than I care to admit. Genetics blessed me with the worst pot belly. I've had several very awkward moments of people coming and congratulating me.
