    Everyday feels like moments of Diary of a wimpy kid. There is always some craziness happening.

    • When master 4 projectile vomitted over the back of hubby’s car seat (new car) even though he was holding a sick bag. We are still hearing about this four years later. Poor kid.
      P.s. I am loving reading other families ‘wimpy kid’ stories. Too funny!

        Twin great Granddaughters 5 play tricks not just on me but on their Father and mother. They are so identical none of us can really tell them apart, only when they are standing together, one is just slightly taller than the other. little monkeys but so adorable.

      • When the children throw popcorn at each other in the back of the car while yelling mummy mummy mummy when will we get there? I need to win a car cleaning competition now!!

      My son was a runner when he was younger. One day I was in a clothes store, trying on clothes. I had my son with me and he decided to strip off as well (naked). Next minute he crawled out under the door and took. Off. I frantically got dressed, back into my clothes and stumbled out of the dressing room in a panic. He was nowhere to be seen. I got onto security. They soon found him, naked, playing in the centre playground and ball pit.

      Growing up, my brother would call my mum “mummy cat” and she would call him “Pussy cat”. It was based on a book he was reading in kindergarten. Whilst shopping one day, Mum couldn’t find my brother in a large shopping centre and started to yell “where is my pussy?!?!” “I can’t find my pussy!!!” I slowly died that day and still laugh 20 years later!!!

    When my son did a poo in his pants in the park one summer and flies were following him, we didn’t have any spare undies either!

    Jumping into the local swimming pool and having my bathers fall off was definitely my worst Wimpy Kid moment. Mum had decided to bleach my bathers (just why?) and the elastic had unbenownst to me…completely rotted away. I had to call to my friend to go and get my towel so that I could safely get out of the pool without exposing myself.

    My husband had just bought a brand new VW van. We were on a lovely drive for a picnic. Our 3 year old said he didn’t feel well…moments later projectile strawberry milk vomit splattered the entire back of the car, the backs of our heads and front windscreen. Our daughter aged 2 decided to go out in sympathy.
    We had no spare clothes for my son and I was 6 months pregnant scraping vomit off my children, wiping them as much as I could and all whilst dry reaching myself.
    Definitely never forgot the sick touch

  5. I heard a scary sound that I thought was the puppy or my son crying out in pain. I ran to find who was hurt only to discover the awful sound was my son singing.

  6. Well a road trip with 5 kid’s is always fun just as long as i don’t forget my headphones.

  7. Rachel Barnett Reply

    We once told our 5 year old son to pee behind a tree not realising untill it was to late the tree he picked was forked and he was facing everyone while he did it

  8. My daughter decided it would be fun to play hide and seek in a department store, I was so stressed and worried, when I finally found her hiding inside a round clothes rack I was too relieved to tell her off. She thought it was hilarious.

    On a family and friends camping trip, our friend makes real damper. Our daughter takes a bite and her crown (due to pushbike accident) was sticking out of the damper. No dentists in the bush.

  10. Traveling on our first family holiday and had one of the kids vomit in morning the backseat cupped in their hands but then the second child vomited after the first and did it in the back pocket of the car seat made for a fun road trip.

  11. I spent 7 hours on a flight covered in my son’s vomit because I’d already used up my spare clothes from the previous flight because he had thrown up over me then too. I took bigger paper bags for the journey home so his aim didn’t need to be so good.

  12. When my daughter vomited in the car on the way to a party and it ended up going under the back seat and into the door skin of the car..its all you could smell for weeks!!

  13. We were heading interstate with 3 of our kids (fourth wasn’t here yet) and before we had gone 4hrs in to the trip our youngest had thrown up so many times he had gone through all of his clothes for the 2 weeks holiday and was making good headway through his brothers, needless to say I was glad we had plenty of nappy wipes and there were plenty of spots on the side of the road we could pull over to clean his seat and change him.

  14. I can’t handle vomit, and will vomit at the sound of someone vomiting…travelling on my own with the two kids to Torquay one afternoon and my son started to feel car sick…within minutes all three of us were vomiting! I only had shopping bags to clean us all up. After that it was a long trip to my girlfriends with the windows down, before we could clean up properly!

  15. The best was our last roadtrip. I had read a great tip for chaos-free travelling with kids; buy a bag of lollies and everytime they argue a handful of lollies get chucked out at each stop. They soon learned to keep quiet to ensure they could get some treats at the end of the trip.

  16. We caught a ferry to get our flight home, as soon as we got on they were handing out sick bags as it was very rocky, it wasn’t long before our daughter and I were vomiting in unison

  17. Maree Gray Reply

    We were on a long drive interstate for a holiday and had stopped off at a park to use the toilets. Unfortunately they were thunderboxes and Miss S was absolutely terrified of them so her Dad lifted her over a fence so she could go behind a tree. She was not impressed!

  18. One story that still gets mentioned years later, while putting away the laundry I accidently packed away my daughters school skort into my sons draw. Getting ready for school the next day my son got ready for school as normal, walking into class, a classmate pointed to my son and asks “is that a skort?”. To say my son was mortified is an understatement, there was a rush home to change, thank goodness he can laugh about it now. Mum fail.

  19. When my son went and had a look at the open day for the fire brigade then he has a go on the hose except he turned it on and soaked me with it, then i had firefighters trying to dry me with towels and everyone looking, so embarrassed that day.

  20. I went to my local service station,bought both the kids a slushy each and while putting my daughter in her car seat sat hers on the roof of the car,well half way home DD asked me for her slushy which I had left sitting on the top of the car and drove away….I can only imagine how that frozen raspberry splattered on the ground as i can now never go back there.

    • My son has always had difficulty with toilet training and so I pack spare clothes for him. Most outings we end up using those spare clothes or buying something to change him into, but once we were nowhere near shops and I had forgotten to repack the car with spare clothes. He ended up wearing his sister’s spare underwear and pants home, much to his disgust!

  22. My son ran off and got stuck in a window display in a chemist. He was stuck in a toilet seat! He had to be helped by the staff to get out as he was really stuck there!

    Heading on holiday on the road for hours
    We pull in to get some grub in a drive thru
    As I am ordering I feel from behind
    My kid has spewed all over the back of my chair
    Yummy long drive ahead

  24. Living in a house with 3 boys everyday brings a new form of craziness! My eldest is Diary of a whimpy kid mad and always referring back to parts of the books that happen in our household…. or things he makes happen….lol

    Apologies in advance for the essay, but there’s no short way to tell this story. I was holidaying in Queensland with family and we’d decided to drive to Australia Zoo, which was just over an hour away. There were 10 of us in total – 4 adults and 6 kids – so we took 2 cars. I was in one car with my brother and 4 of the kids, and my sister-in-law was in the other car with her sister and the other 2 kids. They’d ended up about 20 minutes ahead of us because we had turned back to grab something one of the kids had forgotten. Then after a quick stop for petrol at the servo we were back on the road and on our way to a fun day out. Excitement was high, and the 4 kids in the back were psyched.

    That was when my 2 year old niece decided it might be a good time to power chuck all over herself in the back of the Tarago. It was everywhere … all over her, the seatbelt, her car seat, the floor, the back of the driver’s seat … and it smelled RANK! Now my brother and I don’t cope overly well with vomit at the best of times, but this was beyond anything we’d ever had to deal with before. So we did what any good parent and auntie would do – we wound down our windows and put our noses as close to the fresh air as possible. I messaged my sister-in-law to tell her what had happened while my brother tried to stay focused on where we were going. It was agreed that the other car would find a spot to pull over and wait for us to catch up.

    So there we were… my poor little niece covered in vomit and crying her heart out whilst pining for her mother, the other kids leaning as far away from her as possible, and my brother and I trying desperately to smell anything other than the stench of vomit whilst also trying to reassure a vomit-soaked child that everything was alright and we’d be with Mummy soon. Seeing the other car on the side of the highway was like spotting a beacon of light in the distance or an oasis in the desert. I can’t say for sure, but one of us may have cried HALLELUJAH! We must have looked quite the sight to people in other vehicles on the highway that day as we screeched to a halt behind the other car. I’m fairly certain the engine was still running when I flung open my door and spilled out onto the roadside desperately gasping for fresh air. The other kids and my brother weren’t far behind either.

    We eventually got back on the road and arrived at our destination, albeit almost 2 hours later than originally planned. They told us at the gate that Steve Irwin was running the crocodile show in the Croc-o-seum that day, so we bee-lined straight for that. The kids were stoked that they got to see the man himself… Then it was time for lunch so we headed to the food service area nearby. We’d just finished eating and were waiting for the Safari Shuttle to head to the tiger enclosure. Unfortunately for us, it was at this point that Mother Nature decided she wasn’t quite done with us yet. It started to rain … hard. By the time the shuttle reached the first stop, the downpour had become torrential and everybody was drenched. At the second stop the shuttle driver announced that there would be no more “hop-on, hop-off” – his job was solely to collect as many people as possible and get us all back to the main gate. Apparently this storm was not going to subside for at least a couple of hours. We arrived back at the main gate drenched and deflated. I was disappointed because I’d missed out on seeing my precious tigers, and the kids were upset that they’d missed … well … everything!

    Luckily for all of us, my sister-in-law can be quite persuasive. She spoke to someone in authority and went on to explain to them that we were from Adelaide and had driven quite a distance but only seen the crocodile show before the rain set in. She asked if we could either get a refund or some replacement tickets. They very kindly agreed to give us new tickets that were valid for the next day so we could return and experience the rest of the zoo. Thankfully the next day was much more “normal” and uneventful, but 11 years on I still remember the first day with much more clarity!

  26. Driving to theme parks in Gold Coast with 4 adults and 6 kids, of which 2 adults and 3 kids get CAR sick and playing musical chairs, when one turns green swap,next one turns green swap (only 2 seats avail for best front view not to get car sick) but it’s all worth it when no one vomits and we get to theme park…..then the drive home

  27. My daughter had a accident and wet her clothes so I wrapped her up in my jumper and took her to the car to change her.

  28. My son and I have had a Diary of a whimpy kid nappy moment! Except that we were in a restaurant and a pop slid out of his nappy and onto the floor while we were eating! I was mortified but Hubby just bent down and picked it up with a napkin and continued to eat

  29. Debbie Dye Reply

    When my Aunty Margaret came over for lunch one day, Mr 8 kept touching her arm. She was looking very puzzled and then he started gigling hysterically telling her she had ‘The cheese touch’!

  30. Nothing worse than vomiting in the car and my son always seems to need to go to the toilet on our road trips and normally where none are so plenty of by the road wees for us

  31. Viny Vabriany Reply

    I always feel nervous to take my kids to road trip as both of them are prone to motion sickness. It was our short first road trip 2 years ago, and I was prepared for the worst (headache, vomit, arguments, etc)

    To my surprise, my kids enjoy the trip very much. No complain, headache and vomit. They play cards, had no arguments, enjoy the scenery along the way, asking questions. They were excited and we had a wonderful family bonding time.

    I learn that sometimes I shouldn’t worry too much and be brave to have a go, because you’ll never know. I am glad I did.

    Our last car trip entailed my youngest throwing up in the car following by leaving one of our suitcases at the hotel.

  33. Penny Lee Perry Reply

    Road trips are our ‘way of life’ from a 2600km round trip to Mildura with a 6week old, to our epic Queensland trip, it’s always an adventure! Our 10 yr old wimpy kid who is car crazy made up his own game: pick a car brand each, then tally any moving cars you see of that brand. His twin sisters chose colours and the rest of us chose brands- gotta be strategic in country QLD and make sure you choose Toyota (Landcruiser/ Hilux) or Holden A Fiat is the wild card, first one to 100 gets to choose where we eat at the next stop.

  34. My Cody (7) Loves these books, puts back toys to choose these!
    Funniest moment has to be the Coke In Grandpas new limmo!

    My dad was showing off his brand new car and little one gets in the back seat, with a bottle of coke. ( we didn’t know)

    We head off for a first drive, only to be sprayed with tiny, sweet smelling drops of Cola, the kid had shaken the bottle up before opening….
    What a mess!
    All we hear is “sorry grandpa”

    There’s many many many more stories but I like that one lol

    Packed up camp, headed off out of the Vic High Country……5 minutes into our 4 hour drive home the youngest Wimpy kid powerchucked. Everything was packed away apart from a packet of wipes and a tea towel, so we cleaned up best we could. With Wimpy kids clothes covered in vomit, dad drove home with no shirt on as he gave it to Wimpy kid to cover herself. So Wimpy dad got some odd looks when we stopped for petrol and food. Him no shirt, her an oversized dad shirt. And all of us smelling like vomit

  36. A pooping explosion! Not just a little poop out the leg or bottom of the ‘diaper’ either!! Swimming lessons with miss 1 at the time who was teething… It came out of her swim nappy into the pool with 7 mortified parents in the water with their children including hubby who froze red faced and said ‘it wasn’t me!!! I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry, needless to say swimming was off for the rest of the day while they treated the hydro pool and pumps!

  37. At the Bistro moving our tray of food ready to pay my daughter vomited delicately on the side of the tray!

  38. After 7 days in Bali miss 2 def swallowed too many water in the hotel slides/pool .. boarding at the airport she threw up on the baggage collector, then before the plane .. lucky we had nurofen in my bag .. a quick dose and she slept the whole way back to Australia .. next day woke up good as gold again

  39. At a Christmas work break up and my little man was being held by the bosses wife when she said there was stuff on his legs. Runny poo had leaked everywhere filling his boots and covering her lap and seat. Having your own kids vomit or poo or pee on you is terrible but when it’s someone else’s child it’s so much worse and I felt so bad for her.

  40. I live in diary of a wimpy kid land everyday I’m afraid kids running around when not supposed to ect have moments with what they say

  41. Richard Harrison Reply

    Always the vomit. How do they know the worst possible time to cover themselves with puke? And whenever I play video games and my two year old pulls my pants down because he knows my hands are busy

  42. Melinda Mahlberg Reply

    Our moment was when my daughter gave no notice and vomited in the car. It hit my husband in the back of the head while he was driving. We all had to stop and clean it up, she had no clean clothes and then we had to continue the trip in a vomit smelling car.

  43. We were driving along the Californian coast rd, very windy. I was reading and eating gummy bears and Mum kept telling me to look up so I didn’t get carsick. I didn’t listen. To this day I still can’t eat gummy bears or read The DIary of Anne Frank.

  44. The almighty are we tjere yet aa soon as we leave the driveway .
    And when your 8 year old holds a sign up at the window that reads….”HONK IF YOUR HAPPY”!
    and you wonder why everyone is honking at you .
    Good times!

    4 boys always something going wrong hehe, but last thing was when matter 3 got his head stuck in a face prop and too us forever to get him out, alot of pulling and turning finally free’d him, poor little man was histerical.

  47. Sheridan Miles Reply

    Our 16 year old has always gotten car sick, but one Christmas day about 5 years ago he EXPLODED, high pressure projectile vomiting while we were on our way to Mums house.
    Needless to say by the time we arrived at our destination the car was covered in puke, our son was covered in puke, I was covered in puke and my husband and our 5 other kids were all trying NOT to puke!!!

  48. Going out to a friends house in summer for bbq. To get there and get my son who was a baby at the time. To find him covered in Poo. He had a Poo explosion. It was everywhere. I didn’t know where to start. Lucky I packed changed of clothes. But it was a whole lot of cleaning.

  49. Amanda jane Reply

    This would be a great christmas present for my 9 year old nephew he has read all the books and loves it

  50. As a mum of 4 boys I am pretty much immune to most smells, noises and pranks! Except when those pranks go wrong and we end up in emergency to have lego removed from the young ones nose or a small cockroach removed from the ear. (Yes it was a real one)!! We could pretty much write the script for the next DOAWK movie/book.

  51. while on holiday telling the kids we would go for a swim after breakfast only to find the tide was way way way out

  52. My son was not well. Heading to the doctors in the car. He said he was going to vomit. I gave him the spew plastic bag. Then an almighty noise erruoted from his throat. He spewed everywhere in the car. Projectile all over the back of me while driving. Not one bit got into the plaztuc spew bag. Not happy Jan!

  53. Michelle fay Reply

    When my son was at swimming lessons and did a poo in his costumes and it floated out into the water, everyone had to get out and they had to cancel the rest of the days lessons plus the older kids lap practice, it was extremely embarrassing and when he got out poo was still plopping out of his costumes so no denying who did it

  54. We did the great ocean road with the kids one very memorable road trip. Was Amazing!
    Apart from our youngest having gastro ….. Say no more……..lol

  55. My kids make me laugh all the time. We have so many moments that I actually created a Facebook page to record them all. It’s called Funny stuff said by Kira and Sophie. One that springs to mind is when my youngest was just talking in sentences and she came to me and said “I dropped my cuddle, but I didn’t say F#*% cos little girls don’t say F#%*!”

  56. My son was not feeling well and was sitting on me cuddling. Then everything went everywhere! Major poo explosion and I’m rushing him straight into the bathroom, drips along the way and over me, I place him to sit in a baby bath so he won’t move cos the only way to clean this up was with a shower for us both! Yuck!

  57. Our Wimpy Kid road trip was a long haul down the south west of WA. In a 3 hour car ride we endured a power vomit by one child, followed by a ‘poo incident’ from our other child, ending with us not being able to find the street that housed our accommodation. By the time we arrived, I wanted to set fire to our car (rather than try to clean it) and had to resist the urge to run away from home!

  58. Driving on a 2.5 hour roadtrip we stopped for lunch, hopped back in the car and driving on our way again and my son starts vomiting, hubby hits the brakes and my coffee goes flying..all over my feet, handbag and lands upside down on my jumper, the only one I had packed for the whole weekend

  59. While shopping for toilets and vanities my toddler decided that it was toilet time and did his business in the toilet that was on display, walked out red faced from that store.

  60. Jodi Matthews Reply

    My kids are the nightmare of my life, oh sorry I mean highlight of my life. Everyday is a Greg day or Manny day.. they are little shits and love to fight, who ever said kids are great should be shot! So glad they love this Movie and Book to read!

  61. Michelle Budge Reply

    I went in to check on my son before going to bed. He was all sweaty and his pajamas were soaking. I thought he might be sick, but on closer inspection I could see his school uniform under his pajamas. I woke him up. He said that in the morning all he had to do was take off his pajamas and he was ready for school. So funny were still laugh about it.

  62. We travelled to Fiji where my hubby was suppose to pack our bathers. When we arrived and wanted to go for a swim we couldn’t find our bathers. He had left them on our dressing table. We all had to swim in our undies, until we travelled to town to get some new ones. .lol

  63. Kasey Evans Reply

    Whilst on holidays our daughter wasn’t feeling well & vomited in the only thing we had, a large takeaway cup which she placed back on the table. The waiter brought our drink order over & we could see him sniffing the air, unbeknownst to him the milkshake looking drink was her vomit. I quickly ran to the toilets to dispose it.

  64. Raelene Field Reply

    Driving on road trip from Melbourne to Sydney, at the time miss 6 was convinced that we needed to drive through Africa to get there , stopping at a service station only 1 hour into our trip she announced to the man behind the counter we are going to Sydney and we have to drive through Africa to get there , he was confused as she was totally convinced that’s where we were going , it happen be Christmas Day so going aLong with her he said well you better be really good and quite so dad can drive fast and you can beat Santa there ………..on another trip to Gold Coast we were visiting SeaWorld when my hubby said to me can I have a $1 coin to feed the fish ( they had a machine to get food out to feed fish) the same miss 6 who now at this stage was miss 10 said oh do fish eat dollaR coins ……we remind her if both of these on a regular bases

  65. well the worst moment was when i was driving back from sydney,and my son was in hes carseat in the back,he was about 3 and he said mummy i feel sick,and i said ok just let me pull over,but no i felt all this water hit the back of my head he projectiled vomited all over the back of me.so the rest of the trip home i was still pulling bits out of my hair,very bad day.

  66. Just finished breast feeding my baby to have him throw up all over my cleavage and White top with his warm milk mixed with pumpkin spew right down my front … … needless to say he was handed over to the grandparents quite swiftly while I went to shower fully dressed.

  67. Christina D Reply

    If anything can go wrong, with my family it usually does. The worst moment would have to be a poo explosion- it went everywhere. So hard to clean up – everything, including clothes went in the bin that day.

  68. Our most recent would be driving home through the blue mountains after being bush with the 2 kids & our puppy when the kids say look mum the pup is dancing to which only followed by vomit everywhere

  69. Tony Mackenzie Reply

    It always fun getting dirty looks from passing cars because the kids are poking faces at the from the back seat.

  70. My boys love this movie and now our daughter loves it too. I guess you can say it’s a great movie to watch as a family, laugh, bond and relax. Also reminds us we aren’t all that abnormal after all lol

  71. On fathers day quite a few years ago now, hubby was changing bubs nappy and as he took the nappy off he did a spray poo and sprayed poo all over hubby’s good going out clothes… Poor hubby 🙂

  72. Day trip in the car. Small chocolate for the toddler. Add motion sickness . More chocolate came out projectile style than initially went in. No change of clothes so he was wrapped in a towel until we got home. Windows down of course.

  73. After a long drive to attend a very solemn church occasion, we decided we all needed to freshen up, in hubbies toilet bag was his nugget for his shoes-our little Mr found said nugget & promptly ‘shined’ up his little sister-no wipes cleaned up that effort!! It did lighten the day a little though… eventually.

  74. Luckily no major road trip incidents other than the usual ‘are we nearly there ‘ 15 mins into a 3 hour car ride

  75. MY MOMENT OF A WHIMPY KID WITH MY CHILDREN ARE EVERYDAY INCLUDING MY HUSBAND THAT TOPS THEM ALL

  76. Worst moment was both our kids projectile vomiting at the same time while we were on a plane trip to Adelaide. We were all covered in vomit!

  77. Belinda jelly Reply

    Last year after celebrating Fathers Day weekend the day we left the kids were swimming in the pool right before we left.
    Once we got in the car the kids eyes were burning and watering from the heavy chlorine in the pool. We had to stop at a chemist to get eye drops and my youngest was crying in pain. Let’s just say it was a long uncomfortable trip home..

  78. Kathleen DONNELLY Reply

    Only have a 10 month old so nothing to report yet. But my cousin was in the car with her kids and the youngest needed to pee so she gave him an empty Fanta bottle to pee in and when she got home it was empty he got thirsty and drank it.

  79. My moment was sending my daughter off to school in her bathers for swimming lessons, but forgetting to pack her underwear!

  80. Cringiest moment, hearing my daughter cough then cry and turn around to see she’d thrown up all over herself, the seat in front and the window/door

  81. We always get “are we there yet” starting in less than 5mins after we leave home, so we always play the eye spy game, which always ends in tears as little miss 8yo spies things in her imagination so this always ends with sisterly squabbles. Oh dear, gotta love road trips!!

  82. Well my daughter at a young age was often telling massive porky pies (mostly obvious by the unrealistic nature of her stories). For example on her first day of school when we asked what she did she responded – we went to the zoo the farm and the beach! We discussed her wild imagination and attempted to curve it unfortunately it was not until she had a boy that cried wolf scenario herself that she swiftly ceased her stories.

  83. My 5yr old was on a school excursion to a park for geography at 9.00am. They had some play time after and by 10.00am the teacher rang me to come get him as he had thought he would be clever and see how many monkey bars he could miss before grabbing one. He missed all and face planted the metal bar below and broke his nose. I ended up in emergency with my 2yr old in tow. Only to be back in hospital the next night with my 2 yr old who (according to docs at hospital) caught a virus from emergency waiting room the day before. We were admitted til 2 pm the next day!!!!

  84. My son thought he’d get the dishwasher going and put hand washing detergent in the dispenser… the kitchen filled up with foam and bubbles!

  85. Mr 9’s grade 2 class photo arrived to show not only mr 9 with a stunned mullet look on his face but half the class is either cross eyed or looks to be in pain… definitely one for their 21st’s

    When my son got sick travelling home from Coffs Harbour. We didn’t know he was unwell until he threw up half way in and out of the Lolly shop at the Big Banana. On and off sick for a few hours andnseemed to come ok! Stopped at Taree and right in the middle of the food court threw up everywhere, all over him and hubby . 2 hours later we stopped st my sister in law’s house and he ate and played like nothing was wrong! It was a hellish trip!!

  87. My three year old tells what he is about to do even if it’s naughty lol. For example I’m going to rip, I’m going to cut, I’m going to punch lol. All in a playing way

    Driving 45 min home from grannies house with little ones, 5 min from home and the little one vomits all over herself, which makes the older one start to dry reach and cry that she needs to get out of the car! Always a DOAWK moment with little ones around!

    My eldest son wiped a tiny booger on my middle son while we were traveling to see family and before you know it he is vomiting in the back and some when on my daughter who in turn started screaming!! Oh what a nightmare!!

  91. When I was a kid I was a road trip vomiter, guaranteed on any trip. We couldn’t even get an hour away from home & we would be pulling over. I was blessed with two little boys renowned for the roadside wee & a little girl that wasn’t up for an al fresco wee so we would frantically be looking for a loo.

  92. My kids went through a phase as toddlers wanting banana flavoured milk. I have in and they had some – only for them both to bring it up in the car on the way home. Several months later, they insisted again and figured it must’ve been a once-off- turns out it wasn’t. Couldn’t get that fake banana smell out of the car for weeks…

  93. Everyday is a Wimpy Kid moment in my household. When my son get’s himself completely worked up he vomits EVERYWHERE. One day doing the shopping he had a big tantrum got himself so worked up he projectile vomited all of me & himself, needless to say i just left the shopping trolley where it was picked him up & got out of there fast.

  94. My youngest son likes doing Bush Wees… but one day he did a massive public bush wee just outside a large local girls High School at the time they were all dismissed…I pretended he wasn’t my son until he called out to me and I turned around to see 1000 girls were laughing and pointing at him!!!!!!!

  95. On a road trip about 2 hours into a 7 hour drive. Windows down as it’s hot and the next minute the police sirens were behind me. I was going the speed limit so I did wonder why he had pulled me over. I pull over and my sons starts balling his eyes out. The police officer said excuse me I just saw someone in the back throw something out the window. I was so embarrassed. He gave me a caution and told my son to never do it again and he never has!

  96. My son loves these books and I’m sure he would watch the movie over and over again!

  105. My son saw the “cheese” on the ground at school and decided that we would all catch something if we went near it.

  106. Our son was not feeling well and was sitting in his car seat. We had just come from seeing our healthcare professional when he said to us that he needed to be sick. Sick he was all over him, his seat, the floor, the console of the car and my husband’s hair. Things happen!

    In January we drive from Newcastle up to tweed heads with our 3 young kids the youngest being 3 who decided to tell us he needed to poo several times on the way. Luckily I took a potty so we could just pull over. It was driving my partner and myself crazy as he wasn’t actually going. He then laughed and yelled out I tricked you guys again I’m just bored. Safe to say we didn’t stop again for him.

  112. With 3 kids it always seems something is going wrong or someone feels that they are living a day in the life of a whimpy kid.

    About eight years ago, we headed off ready for our well prepared snow holiday. Our kids were about 3 and 7 from memory. We had planned and looked forward to this for so long. We left home at 5am, by 12pm we stopped for a good period for a break, with about 1.5 hours still ahead of us. Lunch, wander around town, get back to car and my husband could smell fuel. Turned out we had sprung a leak in one of the fuel lines. Found the only open mechanic, however unfortunately, it was some kind of tradies type public holiday and we couldn’t get anything done on the car. Trying to get a part we need, we were told there were none in Australia!! We had to organise a hire car, and luckily where we were, was about 20 minutes from family (we were about 7 hours from home here), so we were able to organise to have our car left with them till it could be fixed. We finally got to our accommodation about 8.30 that night – after hearing of our day, they upgraded our room for us at no extra charge. While we still enjoyed our snow trip, some of our holiday was then spent back at our family;s trying to work out how we would get home. After our travel, we ended up on a very long train ride back home. A few weeks later, my husband was talking to a mechanic here, finds out we didn’t need to order this whole part we had been told about but could one single line which he could have there the next day!! If only we had been able to speak to him at the time!!! After all this, part came, my husband travelled back down to fix his car and brought it home – three months later!! Moral – we still managed to have a great time despite all our trials and tribulations

  115. Our child having fun dancing with her friends – next minute vomit everywhere in front of all our friends. 5 mins later asking for food because she was hungry.

    We were having a lovely relaxing mini break at the beach for a few days when our then 3yo kept getting up from the kitchen table at dinner time and running to the lounge room and back again. Next thing, he runs head first into the corner of the table and ended up with a nasty cut/dent on his head just above his eye. Of course we headed straight to the Emergency Department to get it glued together. So much for a holiday!!

  117. Driving from Victoria to QLD and when we were halfway through NSW youngest through up in macdonalds ….. it was hotter than we were used too and we had been driving for hours ! I felt so bad and so embarassed……

    The best ever was when I never heard a peep out of them because we played spot the coloured car and I sent indigo as the colour. Do you think we could find an indigo coloured car? I don’t think so.

  119. We were travelling to a city from our small country town, while my now 11 year old was toilet training (she was about 2 at the time). I usually took a port a potty with me during trip but this time I forgot.

    On the way there, she heeded to pee, so we pulled over. The first time she had to “squat” and she managed to pee all over my boots!!

    During the time there, she was fantastic! On the way home however, was the interesting part! She yelled at the top of her lungs “I NEED TO POO!!” and we were nowhere near a toilet so we had to pull over again!

    We went under a tree where she decided to “squat” again, in a bunch of pine needles! They went everywhere, including one that went up her butt….. Safe to say, our next stop was for a hospital visit.

    Butt was fine, pine needle exited safely but one stressed Mumma!

    She now no longer squats and waits til we’re at a toilet lol

I’m crossing that one off!” I cringed, but the aforementioned bikie politely smiled, paid for his petrol and thankfully left on his massive bike.

  124. Our little charmers and one of their cousins decided to hide in a bush and play. When their Dad was calling them, then looking for them they didn’t come out. After us both searching the house and yard *back and front” we discussed calling the Police. They decided they better come out of hiding. They also didn’t realise that the spiders love that bush. They were very lucky that none of them were bitten.

    When my oldest was little we went on our first road trip. Being so long I just kept passing the snacks back and he ended up filthy and orange faced from cheetos. When we arrived we quickly popped up to kmart to buy some more clothes for their stay when he suddenly starts walking real slow.. I see little brown droplets trailing him. Somehow he’s managed to do the wettest poo I’ve ever seen and it is dripping down his legs and onto the floor! Quickly accidentally grab girls clothes for him and race to the change room, call for dad waiting in the car to bring all the nappies and wipes

  129. My then four year old son vomited all throughout the car when we were about 5 minutes from our destination. It was all through the car seat and the buckle and even the air vents!

  130. Visiting Bilpin when our daughter was a newborn… I was holding her while eating apple pie, and noticed some had dripped on my arm. I was just about to lick it off, when I realised it wasn’t apple pie after all, but my daughter’s ‘natural apple pie’ that had escaped her nappy.

    My son aged five and I were on our yearly bus road trip to visit my ex’s mother 4 hours away. He had just discovered that if you really focus you can fart very loudly and for a long time. He would not be told our fellow travelers were not big fans of his fart orchestra. One and a half hours in he saved up all his wind for a command performance. His cute little face contorted, he lets rip dragging it out for 12 seconds until….Yep he sharted! It was inevidable and I should have seen it coming. It ponged horribly and the poor passingers had to wait whilst the bus pulled over, I retrieved my bag and changed him in the tiny bus loo. I had to stow the soiled clothes in the cargo boot. The smell still went all through the bus.

  140. We had just had the carpet put down on our second floor extension. Our daughter chose that night to do a projectile vomit – from her Dad’s shoulder. Went everywhere. One way to christen the carpet.

  155. On a 3 day camping holiday away in the hills our daughter gets a bout of diarrhea in the middle of the first night and its literally gone up the walls of the tent. We cleaned as best ass we could only for an hour or two for her to repeat the same thing so we binned the tent and went home and was back by 6am on the first night of our trip away.

  156. Road trip from hell with four kids in outback NSW , rain which quickly turned to mega mud, kilometres of it. We kept playing road trip games and laughing things off. An emu changed direction at the last minute and hit the windscreen of our brand spanking new 4WD, we had 2 screaming kids, 1 hurling kid, a very interested in the dead emu kid and a very shaky Mum. Oh and a broken windscreen a long way from nowhere! Next came a flock of galahs eating spilt grain on the road, most flew away, one didn’t. Eventually we stopped at a roadhouse, kids piled out and discovered the galah in the front grill, still flapping around, hubby dislodged him and it just flew away without a backwards glance, youngest said “That was lucky!”

I’m frantically throwing wipes at them as I can’t find anywhere to pull over on the Freeway. We stop the car and he’s covered in blood. Quick stop to Kmart and he’s clean and in a new outfit. Hoping that No one looks in the backseat of our car as we park and make it just in time. After the service was a Morning Tea. The kids were all playing in the playground as I heard the rip. He had ripped his brand new shirt! I was now the Mother of that homeless looking child or I could change him back into his Halloween looking blood covered shirt. We made do in the ripped shirt until it was time to drive home. Returned to the car that looked like someone had been slaughtered in the back seat. Fun times cleaning that when I got home!

    My youngest daughter pinched the last mango ice-cream from the freezer. It was meant for her Dad. He saw her eating it and said “Hey, that was mine’,
    She looked up at him and whilst rubbing her belly said “It’s gone to a much better place”.

  174. On a trip through central Queensland, we made an emergency toilet stop for my then 4 year old son on the outskirts of a small town. We pulled over near a couple of trees on the side of the road in front of a fenced paddock. While he was relieving himself behind the trees, a cow walked up along the fence unnoticed and standing only a few metres behind my son, mooed very loudly! This gave my son such a fright that he screamed and ran back toward the road in mid-stream, making an utter mess of himself in the process!

    As much as we tried, mum and dad were simply unable to restrain ourselves from seeing the funny side of this, though we did have the decency to save most of our hysterics until later that night when the kids were asleep!

    My son remains somewhat traumatised by the experience – he doesn’t like cows and also now generally does a thorough survey of the area in the event a ‘bush wee’ becomes necessary!

  175. Picking my husband up from work at the local high school and my son who was toilet training at the time decided he had to go then and there. I was mortified as he just pulled it out and started watering the roses in full view of teachers, parents and students. I never showed my face there again.

    Then my 2 year old, who was on my lap, with no warning proceeded to throw up all over me from top to bottom, vomit dripping everywhere, stinking out the entire bus, so so embarrassing, not to mention a flight home without being able to shower beforehand! An absolute nightmare journey, my cringiest wimpy kid road trip ever, hopefully never to be repeated! I was NOT very popular on that journey!

  191. My son was eating McDonald’s soft serve cone in the car. Halfway eating, he was sleepy and nodding off but still wouldn’t let go of the ice cream. Whenever I tried to take the ice cream away, he woke up and cried and made me give it back. The ice cream just kept falling down from his hand and I kept catching it. Still, the result of all that is MESS everywhere.

  192. When I was on the phone trying to find an important document for my husband who was interstate my son who was then seven he and his younger sister who was five and a half years old were bouncing on the lounge despite repeated requests to stop. On hearing a big thunk to the ground I turn around to find he’d hit the lino floor (concrete right under) and he spent the next hour passing in and out of consciousness him claiming he was fine whilst laying down going to sit up vomiting and passing out again so the next 6 hours were spent in the emergency room with me holding a sick bag out every time he turned green. whilst trying to keep his 1year old sister from exiting the area and his other two sisters entertained and not bored because as with all these things it happened right near bedtime on a Sunday and no other doctors were open then. The ER staff were understandably busy due to a crash but when at hour 5 I was offered to take him home, as he’d stopped being sick and passing out, so long as I could wake him up and he sleeps like a log.

  193. Road trips are the best way to not only see beautiful Australia but to have many memorable moments with three children and husband in tow! It’s all about negotiation and road trip games. Our recent favourite one is alphabet sign game. Never a dull moment!

  194. My husband was sick of making toilet stops on our road trip and didn’t beleive that my son could need to go to the toilet again just 20 minutes after stopping and just kept driving. Turns out he did need to go to the toilet, not a great day that one!

  195. Was staying Over at my dads house when in the morning my toddler went Into his room to say hello but grabbed his teeth instead that were soaking in water at the side of his bed and was shoving them on her mouth, Honestly I was gagging laughing and screaming all at one go. Looking back now it very very comical

  197. Hosting an international exchange student and while out and about on their first day with us my then 2 year old decided to whip out his doodle and pee in the bushes. He’d never done it before, never done it since but had to do it that moment.

    I love reading Diary of a Whimpy Kid at bedtime with my grandkids, especially my grandson Robert. Lots of giggles and a lovely way to bond over a great book.

  199. My favourite moments are always when they’re singing, laughing or sleeping. My most cringeworthy moment was when we were travelling with a dog (not even OUR dog – we were minding it!) and it suffered from car sickness. It lost control of it’s bowels about an hour into a 5 hour trip and set off one of my children gagging and retching while we were trundling down the highway at 110km/hr. The car still stinks more than a year later.

    I remember taking my kids on a trip through the hills. The eldest kid got sick and of course there was no where to pull over…..blah .. sick all over the car! I asked him to wind the window down and out it went outside, inside and everywhere in between! I now carry sick bags and a rubbish bin on long haul trips!

  204. Ten minutes into a road trip with 11month old and 6yr old little man starts crying. I turn around to see what wrong and am met with a projectile vomit with so much force it splatters across the windscreen, car seats myself and mr 6yrs. After pulling over onto the side of the freeway to discover that i had nothing to clean away this monstrosity. With no other option I removed my shirt and proceeded to wipe down mr 11months and mr 6yrs as well as attempt to wipe the windscreen to have some form of visiblity. Because of sheer amount of vomit I had to scoop it off the car seats and floor with my bare hands and that is when i noticed the flashing lights and that is how the police found me: on the side of the freeway with two screaming children, me standing in my bra and jeans with a handful of vomit in each hand. I have never seen two officers so keen to get back to their patrol car.

  205. My son was hungry so I suggested fruit as dinner was only an hour away. He had taken his third bite when he said “this apple tastes funny” ….my response ” Sweetie that’s a nectarine” . My kids need to eat more fruit!!!

  206. On a road trip, after foolishly letting my daughter (then aged 3) have chocolate milk in the car. We’re stuck in traffic, in the middle lane. First she spilled some on herself. No big deal. Then she drank the rest really quickly so she wouldn’t spill any more. Then there’s a … funny noise from the back of the car. I glance up into the rear vision mirror in time to see a cascade of choco-vomit projectiling out of this tiny person and straight into the back of my head. It was 35 degrees celsius. We had no airconditioning. Opening the windows just blew my puke-covered hair into my mouth. It took nearly 15 minutes before I could pull over safely and help the poor kid. We were both in tears.

    My daughter was only 2 weeks old, when we were invited to a family members formal dressed, 21st family party, at a beautiful ritzy function centre.
    She was a happy, healthy child who was on the breast more than off!
    Breastfeeding in public does not worry me- but her nappy explosions were regular and at the best of times- unpopular! Lol.
    So I’d just finished feeding my little firl, when I heard that all too familiar thunder come from her nappy.
    I was so worried that even though she was wearing correctly fitted huggies nappy, there would be an inconvenient leakage.

    There were no nappy change rooms, but there was a formal lounge area, which had a leather lounge, and coffee table just outside the door of the function room.
    So I decided to quickly change her nappy there.
    Old nappy off, cleaned bottom, new nappy being applied- when I lifted her legs to slide the new nappy under……a thunderous fart coupled with projectile POOP hit me straight in the neck and chest area!!!!!
    I’d just been sprayed with poop in the ritzy formal lounge.
    I panicked, had to clean my baby, put a nappy on securely asap, and then proceeded for the next 40 minutes, trying to scrub poo out of my formal outfit!
    Oh if I could have sunken into a hole in the ground that day- I would have gladly! Lol.

    I did get cleaned up, but all I could smell, and the people at my table to, was baby poop!
    I ended up staying for 15 minutes longer till I decided that my daughter and I needed to get back home to wash out clothing and share a warm, cleansing bath together!

    As a primary teacher, school excursions often have cringe worthy moments- most of which happen on the bus trip. One of the worst was my first year out of uni. We were on our way to our end of year picnic day at the beach, going down big long hills. One of the year 5 boys suddenly shouted that he was going to be sick. Before I could reach him with the bucket, he had vomited all over himself, the seat and floor in front of him. Next thing you know, kids in front of him start squealing as the vomit was making its way down the front of the bus on the floor. So i had to try to beat it as I urged kids to lift their feet off the floor and pick up 60 bags off the floor in order to avoid the trail of vomit. Turns out this kid catches the bus to and from school every day, and knows he gets bus sick!! Safe to say, I made sure I was on a different bus to him next excursion!

    When my son Max was 18 months old we went on a road trip.
    He had his favourite picture books in the back seat to look at/play with to pass the time.

    After not observing him for over an hour I noticed his book was missing…he had eaten it.
    There were bits of paper screwed up on the seat and floor, but most of the book was in his stomach.
    There was no post vomit.

I said good night to the girls and then briefly looked under the bed cos i ‘thought i saw something’ and said good night monster under the bed… the walkie talkie growled back ‘goodnight ‘… my youngest almost pooped her pants and even my eldest jumped off the bunk and ran out the door….

Yukkkkk, needless to say, out of practice with such messes and smells, I dry reached cleaning him and his mess up while he just looked soooo innocent wondering what all the fuss was about!!! When I handed Cooper back to my Niece, I was looking rather wrecked, she laughed and said that he did this quite often and oops forgot to tell me!!

  226. My daughter politely waited until the seatbelt light came on on our flight home before announcing that she’d been feeling like being sick for the past while and throwing up all over the place before we had a second to grab the sick bags, so we had to sit with vomit all over all three of us until we had landed and the light had gone off.

    Master 8 was staying with mum and dad for a couple of days. We live on acreage but mum and dad live in town.
    Sometimes when he is too lazy to come inside he will just pee outside ( no one is around to see). He was playing in the back yard at mum’s and nature was calling so he did what he usually does and found a spot to have a little widdle. Little did he know but the retirement home was right behind the fence and a few of the little of ladies started talking a giggling and gasping Master 8 heard and was so embarrassed came running to the back door but he had locked himself out. Next thing I hear is loud crying, I came to the door seeing how upset he was,, but also seeing all the old ladies having a good chuckle. His face was bright red. He has never peed outside again……
    We still to this day joke about it, but master 8 doesn’t see the funny side of it.

    I’ll set the scene for you.
    Family car trip during Easter school holidays. It was grey, raining, cold, miserable.
    My husband had wanted to visit the Brock museum in Bathurst. The kids didn’t.
    Total round car trip ended up being close to 1500kms. We were seeing family also.
    Our son had not long turned 3.
    Yet leaving Bathurst on the way to Orange on a lonely highway in the middle of nowhere in the rain and approaching dusk HE DECIDES THIS IS THE TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO PULL UPS AND NAPPIES FOREVER!
    Yes, right here. In his mind, hundreds of kilometres from home this is the perfect time.
    We pulled over, pull-up came off, did a wee on the side of the road (and all over Mummy’s left shoe thanks to a birdie taking his attention) and wore undies every day from then on!!!
    Well, after an emergency dash to buy some the next morning. Very special Lightning McQueen ones.
    Yes, a very memorable car trip! LOL

    Never before had I ever felt like the Heffley family! Away for a few days, driving along the Great Ocean road, no petrol stations in sight. Kids were tired and screaming (18 months and 5 at the time). Then I turn white, younger ones nappy exploded, all up his back and his car seat. By sheer unluckiness, miss 5 decides to vomit all down the front of her at the same time I spill my coffee all over hubby (driving), trying to catch some of the vomit…with no luck. Needlesstosay, thank goodness for baby wipes and working windows till we got back to the chalet!

    My husband comes from a large family so road trips consisted of multiple toilet stops. His father wanted to put an end to this so a bucket was placed at his mother feet. Yes, this was back in the day when seatbelts were optional. One day his mother was emptying the bucket out the window. Unfortunately due to the driver’s side window being open and travelling at a comfortable speed … the contents flew over the car roof and straight into his father’s face! Since then, toilet stop every time.

    Mr (now 8) was about 2 years old and is the biggest houdini ever! I was doing my makeup getting ready for work while he was toddling around – I look down as he’s about to drink acetone nailpolish remover. I freaked out and grabbed it off him and notice that it is nearly empty. Nearly had a heart attack until I saw he’d tipped the whole lot in my makeup drawer. I lost about $400 of makeup that day and the drawer melted (it was a rental house too), probably lost 10 years off my life also in fright.

    A couple of years ago after I took both my children on holidays for the 1st time by myself. I drove them from nsw to qld and although long the drive up was fantastic.

    Took the 2 boys for a walk down to the local creek, by drainage tunnels, they decided to explore, it was in summer so not much water, the bigger one could walk carefully, but the little one no so well, he slipped on the moss covered concrete and slipped into the water at the end, he couldn’t stand up, kept slipping, he finally made his way over to me and he said 1/2 crying it wasn’t his fault, he didn’t mean to get wet. Can’t get cross while I am laughing, it was funny. He thought I would get cross, him getting wet.

  249. My son was refusing to respond to a pleasant lady who was trying to talk to him. I began reaming him out. My younger son kept pulling at my sleeve, and I kept brushing him off with “Don’t interrupt!” I got increasingly cranky with my older son, who was defiantly ignoring me. I finally turned to my younger son, and snarled “WHAT?”

    It turned out that he’d been trying to tell me that his brother had taken the external part of his cochlear implants off, and was ignoring me because he literally didn’t know I was ranting at him.

  250. There seems to be a bit of a theme in most of these posts… i.e. “vomit” – so I’ll add mine… My young son burped – a very large, loud burp – then proceeded to vomit – all over himself & the carpet… while we were at a wedding reception! We cleaned up as best we could, then made a hasty exit…

  251. My son does the “are your serious mum?” Eye roll when I drop him at school the wave and blow kisses. Appparently name label aren’t cool either and he tears them all off the gets in trouble for losing all the containers…

  252. My little one hates anything green – at school, the teacher brought in green, “healthy” smoothies and as soon as my little one saw the green smoothies, he vomited all over the floor! The bad thing is his vomit resembled the smoothie. Truly stomach-churning!

    Our whole lives were Diary of a Whimpy Kid moments. My eldest was forever in trouble picking on his little sister, constantly getting into scrapes – his best one was when he disappeared one day and we found him in the laundry inside the chest freezer eating frozen chocolate cake – why??? just because he could.

  259. My daughter loved pretending to talk on the phone when she was a baby. One day I was putting clothes away and I could hear her waffling on. I laughed to myself as it sounded like she was actually having a conversation. 5 minutes later I went into the lounge room and saw her sitting on the floor chatting away with the phone stuck on her shoulder. I went over and grabbed the phone so I could put it back on the hook and as I grabbed it I thought I could hear a voice…so I put the phone to my ear and said “Hello”. I then had a Policeman introduce himself and ask me if everything was OK….I explained that my daughter had reached the phone and that I thought she was just mucking around….some how she’d managed to ring the Police…..the Policeman told me that it’s probably a very good idea to put the phone right out of my daughter’s reach….oops!

  260. My favourite road trip moment was driving along the road on the way to our campsite. It was nearly Christmas and the kids were bored after being in the car for so long. I decided to play a game with them to see who could spot any Christmas lights first along the way. After a long time of seeing nothing, my 3 year old son excitedly shouts out ” I can see Christmas lights” and starts pointing enthusiastically in front of him. We all looked eagerly to where he was pointing…. straight at the Maccas golden arches lit up in the distance!!! It was the funniest moment ever, and we didn’t have the heart to tell him they weren’t actually Christmas lights! We still joke about it now with him every Christmas by saying we need to put the golden arches lights up on our house for our decorations!

As I scurried to pick everything up, my eldest says to his two little brothers “Come on guys. We’re not with her!”. As I look up, my 5 year old says to me “That’s why no one can touch that sign Mum!”. I was forced to take the clips and sign up to the customer service desk and explain what had happened!

    It was April and my husband and I, and our three children were heading to Mollymook for my brothers wedding. It was about a three hour drive, and unusually warm for the time of year. While travelling along a windy, bumpy, country road, our then 16 month old rear-facing daughter vomited in her seat! We were already about an hour into our trip, so we just did the best we could to clean up her and her car seat with wipes on the side of the road. By the time we reached our destination the smell in the car was almost unbearable! Thank goodness the place we were staying had a washing machine. And may I just say, cleaning vomit off seatbelts and out of cracks is one of my least favourite things to do!

    We live and breath ‘Diary of a wimpy kid’ day in day out, we are always late for school and I am always late to pick up, inbetween these hours mum duty is at its highest, I am either washing down texta marks on walls or toilet spills because there is something that has blocked the toilet or sink, I can go on and on and on. I love my kids, they are adorable.

  275. Stopped for a quick toilet stop with Master 7…me in one toilet and he in another he decides to yell across the toilet block..”Mum are you doing number 1’s or 2’s” to my embarrassment i hear “Yeah Mum what is it” from a stranger. Out of the mouths of babes.

    On out last leg of our trip, we decided to dig a plant off the road to plant in our yard when we returned home. Little did we know we also dug up an ant nest! Ants were everywhere biting! We had to pull over for hours to clean out the car!

  277. 11 year old kept supplying 3 year old with lollies and chocolate to the point that 3 year old projectile vomited said lollies and chocolates. Luckily the dog enjoys second-hand lollies and chocolates…

    When its complete chaos with my four children and Im watching the clock until bedtime and out of no where one of my kids will say, mum I wish I had another brother to play with.

  280. we were flying from Perth to Melbourne and unfortunately there were no entertainment screens in the flight. My boys kept singing during the flight and many other kids also started singing and they all made it into a game. There were many passengers who were not happy about it.

  281. I actually have a large age gap with my sisters- 16 and 14 years. One little sister was doing art on my kitchen table which was wooden- the pen went through the paper and completely destroyed my table ugh. They love wimpy kids books!

    The longest haul of my life was road-tripping from country NSW to Melbourne with our four kids, including our two-year-old (now seven). The only time he wasn’t screaming was when Justine Clarke was playing. I will never forget the sheer torture – it is etched into my mind for life. I even took a photo to mark the occasion.

    My son is mad about Diary of a Wimpy Kid. When he was much younger, we lived in central Queensland, away from the rest of the extended family in Victoria, so we took road trips all the time. We took a little longer once, off on a scenic route over the hills, and even though he’d complained of feeling queasy, he didn’t take our advice to stop reading. Of course he spewed – right into his sister’s Happy Meal box, which was the first thing he grabbed. She still hasn’t forgiven him for putting her off chicken nuggets for life!
