The Bad Mum Pinny

Because on the days when you no-one is going to enter you for Mother of the Year Award you may as well shout it from the rooftops, shove violet cremes in your gob while the kids risk life and limb in the bath, pour white wine over your cornflakes and make BabyJane your role model of choice…

If you are going to do it, do it in style please.

  1. I need to buy one of those for my mom – she always used to joke about what a mean mom she was! LOl

  2. Alison,
    I'm curious about violet creams. You often write about them and I don't think I ever saw them in Canada. What are they? Can you link to a web company that sells them? It surely sounds very yummy.

    And why not wear you best glittery jewels for good measure?! What a hoot! I'm off to make some "Bad Mum" pinnys….=o)

  4. Too funny! Off to pour wine on my cornflakes:>)

  5. Amy says:

    lmao I can empathise there 🙂

  6. Petah says:

    Had to laugh as I just adore the movie 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jan?' I have watched it over and over, mainly for the decor. Yes, I am intrigued as to what these violet creams are as well. Have not seen them here in Australia. I need a reversable apron: one for good mummy and one for baby mummy days!
