What's brown and sticky? A brown sticker, baked onto a windowsill for a year.


A certain person in our house is completely sticker crazy. He sticks them everywhere .... doorframes, baths, teddies, tables, floors. I've learnt to peel them off straight away, otherwise they bake on and I'm screwed.

He likes to "award" his stickers to us all. Very gravely, peeling them back and placing them slowly onto our hands. "You have to wear it all day mum."

"Ok mate."

During breakfast this morning, there was an announcement.

"Dad, you will be wearing one of my stickers all day today."

"Ok mate."


I laughed a dog whistle laugh until tears came. Because that sticker is a Dave Riley-sized sticker if ever I saw one.

  1. Oh man, we have the sticker thing going on here too. Drives. me. crazy.

    Best of all people just keep on giving us stickers. One of my good mates who loves to gives the girls stickers babysat for us recently, we came home to find her covered head to toe in stickers. I don't think she'll be buying them again for us.

  4. I bought wall stickers, just so that they didn't bake on. Best thing ever, even if they were expensive.

    Car stickers are good too.

  5. Him & Lexie are a match made in heaven, I tell you. I found a sticker stuck on my hand one morning. A pink butterfly with glitter. She told me she had put on on me in the night to keep me safe???

  14. My nephew does the exact same thing, but then there is a follow up a few weeks later when he asks you to produce the sticker he gave you...extreme dissapointment if you can't!

  17. lol, my kids do this too. They even want me to save the stickers at the end of the day, requiring that I peel them off my clothing (and then discreetly toss them after they go to bed).

  18. oh man stickers... the smallest likes to peel them off and eat them, one by one. I marvelled at his fine motor control, he's only one you know.... till I had to change his nappy.

    Our hard wood floors still have stickers on them from when my girls were 2... they are almost 8 now... oops

  19. When I saw that pic, it reminded me of my toddler's first toddler plane trip. One of the things she did to keep occupied was put Peppa Pig stickers all over her seat and arm rest and some on daddy too. We have a few things in our place all stickered up. Hmmmm.......maybe I should have removed them already....or is it too late?
