  • The Princess and the Pee-Yew - A short story

    Once upon a time....

    In a living room far, far away... well, actually it's downstairs from where I am writing this right now but that doesn't sound as good...

    ...a 2 year old girl is watching a box set marathon of Princess Sofia the First for the third time today.

    Twirling around dancing to a mad ballet in her head, somehow avoiding all the dolls and toys thrown around the floor which have been cast aside after an epic tea party - one in which the teddy bear seems to have fallen in love with a frog wearing trousers... but that's for another story...

    She suddenly stops, looks at me and pulls that face... yep... toilet time...

    A short episode later "WOW! That Stinks!" says I, having been caught off guard by the sudden change in atmosphere "I thought Princesses only smelt like roses?!"

    After a quick clean up its back to normal service with a high pitched shout of 'Let It Go!' (her, not me, this time) and a twirl back towards the toy stash and the familiar sounds of Princess Sofia...

    and I'm left holding the soiled nappy ready for the bin, vapor lines and all.

    But here's the thing.

    I love dealing with the diaper... I love the fact I am there to be able to share the good, bad and stinky times with my family, all day long.

    But for the longest of times I got handed nasty smelling piles of cr*p of a different sort on a daily basis...

    Back when I had to turn up to a place I hated day in day out, had to miss my kids plays, couldn't go to their open days, came home so tired that when I got in I was barely able to stay awake, let alone dance around the front room.... back when I had a J.O.B working for someone else and making that same someone else the big bucks while I just about got by...

    Sound familiar?

    I'm sure it does.. and that was my life too until one day I managed to throw that proverbial dirty diaper right back in my Bosses face and tell them 'I'm Out Of Here! Clean Up Your Own Mess!'

    And the main thing that got me to that point?

    Creating and selling products...

    So if you'd like to spend more time smelling the 'roses' instead of getting someone else's muck on your face daily why don't you throw on a Tutu, scream 'Let It Go' from the top of your lungs and pirouette over to see how you can flip it around and give YOUR Boss the stink eye in a few short weeks from now...

    I'm off to practice my plié so until next time, stay awesome my friends
