5 Things I Have Learnt “The Morning After The Night Before”

1.Opening a bottle of cava and calling it a ‘ night cap ‘ after already drinking 2 bottles in the restaurant is a silly idea 🤕

2.  I am not a teenager anymore and must remember I can’t drink like one 🤔

3.  Giving your 4yr old carrot cake for breakfast is not acceptable (but I would give him a kidney right now to stop the screaming ) 😬

4.  Wearing sunglasses at 7am does ease the pain 😎

5.   Getting very , very , very drunk the night before hosting your daughters 1st Birthday Party is never a good idea 😱

      That’s true. Wine is made from grapes so maybe i was just making sure i consumed all my fruit for the day X

    Oh dear. Hangovers with kids are hell, but a kids birthday party to deal with?! I take my hat off to you, I don’t think I would have survived!

    • The UnNatural Mother says:

      I survived , just ! I tried to get the other mums to have a glass of cava so i could have one but they all just stuck to tea. Probably best 🙂

  4. The mummy hangover cannot be any worse! I think I have done it twice and omg I don’t think that I can handle it! Yes I’m a wimp! Because I hardly get a chance to go out, when I go out.. I GO OUT. So the next day I am a mombie! Literal mum zombie! Great post because it is so true haha #sharingthebloglove

    • The UnNatural Mother says:

      I’m like you. I haven’t been out in months so on Friday night i wanted more,more,more . Just wasn’t the best idea to do it the night before 20 under 4’s turn up for a party X

    hahaha I have soo been here, especially number 1, why oh why do we always feel the need to open that last bottle or have that last drink! I have made that mistake too many times, that and drinking like a teenager, parenting with a hangover is the WORST. I hope that part wasn’t too traumatising for you… Thanks for linking at #familyfun, hope to see you again next week xx

    • The UnNatural Mother says:

      I have only gone it a handful of times in 4 years but i have to say the hangover was well worth it for the fab time i had with my hubby and a long shower and a layer of makeup made me look alive for my daughters Birthday party X X

  6. Oh dear. Think we have probably all been there though. So appealing that evening but really there is NOTHING worse than having a hangover when in charge of little people is there?! Thanks for sharing on #fortheloveofBLOG x

  7. Uh oh. Not great having a hangover, what a night to pick just before your daughters birthday! thanks for linking up to #familyfun

  8. Oh god, there is nothing worse than a hangover with kids around, I just can’t face drinking more than 2 glasses these days – I also suffer with stonking hangovers now I’ve hit my 30’s! Hope you made it through the birthday party ok! Thanks so much for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

  9. Oh no! Not the night before the party! As I am currently living through a hangover with kids I can safely say these lessons don’t seem to remain in the brain for long. The same mistakes will be made next time too.

    • The UnNatural Mother says:

      Luckily the party was at my house and one of the other mummies brought a bottle of fizz so i had a small glass to take the edge of it X

  10. You know I love this post- the picture makes me giggle every single time. I wish I was drunk right now!


    • The UnNatural Mother says:

      So do i !!! Im dealing with 2 vomiting children today. It took weeks at school for the 1st virus to hit our house . Errrrrrrrrr 🙁

  11. Kids and drinking in our house don’t mix. It’s a no go unless you are a glutton for punishment! Couldn’t help but chuckle, sun glasses do help! #KCACOLS

  12. From Day Dot says:

    Haha seems like such an easy and obvious list but I guess it always seems like a good idea at the time! #justanotherlinky

  13. The Tale of Mummyhood says:

    Ah so true! Always a good idea at the time though!


  14. Emily says:

    Haha, carrot cake for breakfast!! Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky

  15. Debbie says:

    Love the honesty and I am sure it’s a place most of us have found ourselves at one point or another! Carrot cake is probably one of the better options for breakfast (the morning after), I can think of plenty worse….Or maybe not.


  16. Kat says:

    Some true words of wisdom here! I can’t do nights out like I used to anymore, and even then they were pretty low key. #sharingthebloglove

  17. Jaki says:

    I have learnt this lesson just a handful of times over the last four years and there really is nothing worse than looking after a child with the hangover from hell!! Let alone hosting a birthday party – bless you! You lived to tell the tale – well done you! #justanotherlinky

  18. Oh no! I am such a lightweight since having kids. I just can’t handle the thought of being hungover and not being able to nap on the sofa! I hope you were ok for the party. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove x

  19. Maria says:

    You gave him on if his five a day for breakfast – that’s a good thing!

    What I want to know is how you survived the 1st Birthday party!

    Thank you for linking up to #KCACOLS and I hope to see you back again on Sunday x

    • The UnNatural Mother says:

      I survived the 1st Birthday by drinking 5 cups of tea and eating far too much Birthday Cake ! Harry may have had more cake for his breakfast the next day too X
