Special moments in the life of a little girl deserve to be immortalised, though probably not like this.

What started as a fun way to update Amelia (Mimi)’s mum on how the day was going soon took on a life of its own – Mimi has quite the repertoire, you know.

So for all those friends and family who said they should be shared, here it is: Shameless exploitation of an unwitting child…. Mimi’s Memes.

Mimi's Memes #6 - The Bond Villain

We have the pleasure of bunny-sitting this little guy (his name is Juke, or possibly Duke) for the holiday season. Only problem being it seems to have brought out the evil genius in Mimi – she does a pretty good Blofeld impression for a three-year-old! The seasonal polo-neck certainly helps.

GLOAT: It’s a tough auld life for a toddler, huh?

Seems only fitting to post this meme today, as the summer finally inches its way towards us.

She’s a girl like no udder..

Mimi's memes #2 - Monday motivation

For those of us who find ‘hang in there, kitty’ posters condescending and annoying (I can’t be the only one), I thought we could do with a new angleĀ in the motivational poster trope.

Mimi's meme #1

This is where it all began with the memes.

After a particularly unsettled night, I was dragging my exhausted form around after her and her poor sleep-deprived mum had somehow made it to work. Of course Mimi then decides to find the whole palaver simply hilarious – so I sent this...Read More »
