Sometimes life is all kinds of Fail.
Yes, Fail, with a capitol ‘F’.
Crafty projects – Lets make these cool gluey sun catchers… except our glue didn’t dry clear so they don’t as much catch the sun and shut it out completely.
Baking – Not enough honey so lets just add a little more sugar to those muesli bars… except that turned the syrup into toffee that set into a single hard blob the minute it hit the dry ingredients.
Playing – Lets tape a crayon to a car and drive and draw at the same time… except the bloody crayons just wouldn’t stay stuck.
Parenting – Sure, go outside and play with a little bit of water… except what I think of as a ‘little bit’ and what they think of as a ‘little bit’ are two terribly different things.
Yep, sometimes I fail so spectacularly I can’t figure why I ever thought it was a good idea in the first place.
Had any awesome failures lately? Care to share?
As always there are no hard and fast rules for this, you can share a failure or any other aspect of your perfectly imperfect life!
If you blog you can link up below. If you are on twitter or instagram you can share using the hash tag #reallifewednesday (add @katepickle when you do so I can find it!). You can even post a comment or share a photo on my facebook page if you like. Don’t worry, you don’t have to post or share today, you’ve got all week till the next one.

I’m failing at sleep, but it’s not my fault. Or anyone’s fault really. Just life as it stands right now LOL <- if I don't laugh I'll cry (and sometimes do). I'm doing RLW today but can't see the linky. Here's my talk about poo and bread and stuff
How’s that for a fail… post your linky post without adding the actual linky!!! LOL
Ah I am so with you… if you can’t laugh you’ll cry!
oh and I’ve linked up your post now :) Thanks
I’ve linked up a post this week. Sigh. Wish I didn’t have anything!! x
Oh I read that post on the ipad last night and smiled and commiserated right along with you! Sometimes it’s only a semi-fail, or an uncertain-fail…. because nothing is all bad right?

Mine’s not recent, but I failed at it twice and wasted a heap of sugar and butter in the process. Good times!
Hehee! I’m not laughing at you, Kate. I’m laughing with you. I mess up so often. Many, many fails here in any given week. lol It means we’re REAL!
Thanks so much for this post!!! I often feel a ‘failure’ since becoming a parent as pretty much everything I try and do doesn’t work!! Thanks
