A mess and a present (for you)

Have you ever wished you could earn something from the mess your child makes? How about an Amazon voucher worth £75?

All you have to do is dig out a picture of your beautiful child making a huge mess. Something like this:

This time last year Frog was learning about food.

She was learning to throw it, smear it all over her face and, occasionally, taste the odd morsel.

I remember one particular meal very clearly. We’d had carrot soup for lunch. It was everywhere – adorning the wall, floor and ceiling. Frog had food in her hair, all over her face and under every fingernail. I couldn’t imagine a day when this wouldn’t be the outcome of every mealtime. The thought of Frog using a spoon was a distant dream.

Fast-forward to today and we’re all about the spoons. Gone are the days of plunging chubby fists into plates of spaghetti. Instead, we’re scooping and aiming with perfect precision. The mess is, amazingly, minimal.

But I look back on those early days with fondess. We had great fun…

Now here’s the good bit.

If you too have messy children, you now have the opportunity to brag about it and win yourself a £75 Amazon voucher.

All you have to do is post a picture of your child making a mess, covered in mess or just generally looking messy, on your own blog, along with the following:

Here is my entry to the Appliances Online messiest kid competition at Mother’s Always Right.

Once you’ve done that, come back and leave a comment with a link to your post so I can see your picture. It really is that simple.

Then, in a couple of weeks, keep your eye on my Facebook page and Twitter feed to find out if you’ve won.  

Terms and conditions:

  • Competition open to UK residents only
  • Competition closes Monday 6th February
  • The winner will be chosen from the selection of photographs posted – the messier the better

  9. These are so funny! I’ve been Baby Led Weaning for the last few weeks and was expecting a huge mess especially when we gave our baby messy foods like mash or sauces, but she’s so dainty. She doesn’t splatter anything, doesn’t throw, just places the food to the side that she doesn’t want and gets the spoon either straight in her mouth or almost. So I don’t have any really messy photos to enter. Am I just lucky or is the mess yet to come?
