Gifts for New Mums are Full of Folly

Gifts for new mums are full of folly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Tis the season to grin stiffly while presented with crap,
Fa la la la la, la la la la. 

 

Don we now our baby high heels,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
It's never too early be a Lady Gaga,
Fa la la la la, la la la la. 
 


See the baby poop scooper bags before us,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
For the baby who won't wear nappies.
Fa la la la la, la la la la. 

Follow me in merry measure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
While I receive the gift of Baby Tee-Pee,
Fa la la la la, la la la la. 

Germophobics love the Potty Mitts,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
But I don't think the Baby Toupee is a suitable gift,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

If you really want to make a new mum's Christmas,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Stuff a copy of Cocktails at Naptime in her stocking!,
Fa la la la la, la la la la. 

Merry Christmas to you all and have a fabulous New Year! Now we're off to sample some liqueur chocolates and maybe a Cocktail or two.

Hugs
Emma and Gillian

  1. do they do those Baby wigs in adult sizes? It's not for me you understand, but my wife wants to know.

    Happy Christmas

  2. Glen...Their website says they do toupees for babyies ages 0-9 months. If you have a small head you may be able to squeeze into one, the downside being you may lose blood supply to your brain.

  3. Do they do Groucho noses and moustaches too?

  4. To the tune of Silent Night, here's my response:

    These gifts are shite
    Wholly shite
    Baby wigs
    What a fright!
    All you need for a mother and child
    Is a cocktail or two for when baby is wild
    Hail the gin-induced slee-eeep
    Hail the gin-induced sleep.

  7. I think I'm developing a crush on Trish after reading her brilliant comments around the blogosphere. Shhh, don't tell her.

    As for the products,I don't quite know where to start, those shoes, those potty mitts? For the love of all things mildly normal in this freaky fucked up world in which we live - what if wrong with people?!!

  10. I used to think those pee pee tents were stupid, until my newborn had a projectile poop that almost flew into my husband's mouth. It was a Kodak moment. I only wish I had caught it on camera.

  42. OMG! I just saw your comment with the video you shared with the guy going around getting kicked in the nuts. Hilarious. SO glad you posted that because I clicked to your blog and found these potty mits. We just potty trained and that has to be one of the things that grosses me out the most! Thanks for sharing.
