A shout out to perfectly imperfect parents everywhere!


Squaddie larisa.vadevalloo and her perfectly imperfect parenting moment.

We launched the Squaddie Hub on Monday and we’re already hearing from you about your perfectly imperfect parenting moments. It seems like expectation vs reality might just have hit a chord with parents everywhere!

We’ve absolutely loved reading your comments and seeing your posts on Instagram. It seems that life on lockdown with a baby has its highs and its lows, whatever we were expecting.

Take a look at just a couple of our favourites:

Big up to @amumblog who has been taking the time in lockdown to carry out a series of photoshoots with her very active (and very gorgeous!) little one. Hands up if you can relate!

“I’ve been sending family way more photos than I normally would and those images aren’t always easy to capture 📸 No toddlers 👧🏼 were injured in these out takes.”

Thanks to @Littemisspippa who is on lockdown with her four-month-old baby girl and running out of interesting and educational ways to keep her entertained.

“We’ve gone from juggling which baby class/activity to do every week to watching baby club & Tellytubbies most days (I now can’t get the baby club songs out of my head)! As Rosie is still young I’m finding it hard to think of new interesting/educational activities to do with her, I don’t want her to be watching TV/YouTube every day…so your ideas are welcome”

I've made a different window display every week and spent lots of time singing to my baby.
At some points it's nice to just sit in the garden and enjoy that Jake's daddy is getting time with him that he wouldn't have had under normal circumstances.

@Melony: We loved the window display idea, so original! :)

I have been trying new things every couple of days, no mess painting, messy play with water and flour in bowls, little one loves it, bath in garden becomes a pool 😂 making new games with things around the house i.e toilet roll tubes and cotton balls. I found so much stuff to do online that is age appropriate

@Alyson89: It's time to be creative!

We planned finger painting on her high chair and instead of finger painting she actually ate majority of the paint! Luckily it was edible paint 😂👀

@Mammatovalentina: That's hilarious! :)

I have been taking my little one out in the garden to play in the lovely weather, he has a playhouse and paddling pool, balls etc. But he keeps on eating little stones 👀 and feeding little stones to our dog 🙈😂 I think we need to get rid of the stones in our garden 😂

@Emily22: Good idea! 😂

Hand print painting was great for my little one. She enjoyed it using rainbow colours and putting her hands on paper. Got her apron and dress with paint.
