"Sorry. But I don't want to come to your Ultrasound party."

You’re pregnant.

I’m happy for you.  Really.  So happy. I’ve been pregnant. I know you feel special. I know you feel like the whole world revolves around your expert procreation skills and the miracle that is growing inside you. This is a significant moment for you. I get that.

Just please, don’t invite me to your ultrasound party.

Because here’s the thing: To everyone except you, your Ultrasound looks like every other.

Like this:

Okay, if you have a 3D scan, yours looks different. It looks like a playdough monster.

When we heard that started offering ultrasound parties, I rolled my eyes so far back it would require an ultrasound to see the pupils in the back of my head.

Also on this week’s podcast, Millennial mums – they document everything online, they dress their babies up, they give their children instagram accounts. Gen X mums secretly think they’re silly, but today, excellent mum blogger Melissa Hugzilla admits she wishes she was more like the young ones.

And remember gymbaroo? That’s old school – now there’s a new wave of new toddler activities that parents are planking over. Baby Pilates. Daddo almost choked, but I think there’s a good reason for it.

And, best of all, Nailed and Failed, where you can laugh at me for what one woman said AFTER she tapped me on the shoulder at the playground and said, “Excuse me, have you seen what your son is DOING?”

Podcasts are free and they’re the best way to catch up on things while you’re going about your Gloriously Messy life.

Here’s the easy way to get them on your phone.  Or, watch this video:
