I am NOT a mum tonight!

Why we should stop talking about our kids when out?

In my world that revolves around children I am known for being the mum, the foster mum, the babysitter, the drop in centre for the kids friends.

Tonight I went out socially with 10 other people and for once no-one talked about children.  It was wierd, not good nor bad, just wierd.


What do people talk about if they don’t talk about the kids or the hubby’s.  Well I now know.  There was plenty of conversation, much about travel.  Other topics included lifestyles, like how often people cook at home vs eating out, our various preferred forms of transportation and the changes in home decor over the decades.

I do find talking about children a bit monotonous at times, not beca

use it is boring or doesn’t interest me, but just because it is most of my life, and sometimes I would like different and more stimulating conversation.

It was refreshing to talk about other topics.  It makes for a more interesting evening, opens up the opportunity to get to know people better and also broadens my knowledge.  So now I shall make a more exerted effort when I go out and open conversations about things other than family.

Where does your conversation usually start?

From the initial quote and booking to the baby sitting service, Cherished Cherubs have been outstanding all the way through!! It gave us complete peace of mind knowing our son was well looked after. - Christina, 3/3/20

We had Riana look after our 1.5 year old son for a few hours while we went out for dinner. From the moment she walked in the door both my son and daughter were obsessed with her. - Michelle, 31/8/20

Our babysitter Erica was fantastic, she went above and beyond to make our little people feel safe and happy. Strongly recommend her to others and will use again in the future. - Dale, 19/10/20

My children felt at ease with Ema straight away. She read them stories and settled them into bed. Booking and communication process was very straightforward and easy to use. Highly recommend - Hannah, 1/12/20
