In its absolute most simplest form there’s three types of lifestyles- those with kids, couples, singles. Of course it’s natural to compare and contrast what life must be like. I love the comedy, parodies and challenges that come out!
Here’s some of the best:
People with no kids don’t know
Comedian Michael McIntyre shows how impossible it is for him and his wife to leave the house with two kids! Highly worth a watch as he replicates trying to get his boy to school on time and planning on going to a new restaurant… say, never.
I agree, I certainly have no problems leaving the house:
Baby mugging- I was literally begging my friends to take photos of their babies ‘in a mug’. Check out http://www.babymugging.org
Cheese challenge– taking a cheese slice and throwing it into your kids face to see if it sticks and they laugh.
No kids and single-
Dog moms rap: it’s an oldie but a goodie.
Casually strolling with a turd in my hand…..
This song’s for all the ladies who provide for their pup.
‘Cause they say you ain’t my baby, but I know that ain’t true!
Yo I don’t need a man to come home to, cos my bed is a literal bone zone. Fall asleep to the sound of you licking your parts…. (T-Spoon & ZZ Tophalf)
Dog Cheese Challenge- don’t have a baby, just need cheese and a pet!
There’s just not enough around for the singles.
We make too much food and have no one else to eat it so it gets thrown out, or like me, have a freezer full of leftovers I don’t want. On the flip side, why cook for one, just eat too much takeaway!
There’s no one to help with maintenance jobs so I have one light out that I can’t reach. I google everything or call Mum and Dad for a second opinion.
Hi Mum, I’m just wondering…. can you give me a second opinion on… (I really don’t have a clue but I’m 38 and should stop calling my parents)
- What is a cubic metre?
- Where is Niger?
- How many kids does Constance Hall have?
- Can dogs overdose on flea medication?
- What did Luke Perry die from? 😩
Working in HR, I’d get personal leave requests when employees had to be a carer. Fair Work Australia states eligibility for carers leave:
A member of the employee’s immediate family means a spouse, de facto partner, child, parent, grandparent, grandchild or sibling of an employee; or a child, parent, grandparent, grandchild or sibling of the employee’s spouse or de facto partner.
My family includes my parents, sister, dog and best friends. Is the immediate family definition old fashioned now?
We take melatonin to fall asleep by ourselves, coffee to wake us up in the morning. We tell our dogs about our day, and we ask them about theirs!
Don’t forget the single people.
