10 Reasons Why You Want Another Kid

'He's the father of the entire first row.'

As soon as you settle down with someone, there seems to be a weird interest from other people about your attempts to populate the planet. When you finally get around to having a child, its only a matter of time before people start asking about when the next kid is.

Now I’ve already blogged about the many reasons why you may not want another child… but what if you’re thinking about it? (Or you’re trying to encourage someone else to think about more children) Here are 10 reasons why you want another kid.

  1. Practicing for one is fun. (Unless you’re very successful, in which case, bad luck)
  2. The next one may watch Match of the Day with you.
  3. They could entertain and look after each other? This saves money in the long run on child care fee’s.
  4. Keep at it, and you get enough for your very own football team.
  5. The next one may like Star Wars
  6. Multiple kids can parent each other right?
  7. The next one may watch Match of the Day with you, and bring beer.
  8. Want to set up a business? Dont pay for staff! Free child labour!
  9. The next one might switch on the radio, after the other has turned the radio off.
  10. The more children you have, the greater your chances of one child making millions, and not putting you in a crooked retirement home.

Any other reasons?

10 Things To Remember When Preparing A Wedding

As with any year, this year is going to share its own fair share of challenges and big events. One of the big events for you, may be that either you or someone you know is getting married. If you’re getting married – Congratulations! If you’re helping with someone getting married – this is for you. Collected from a number of “interesting” weddings, here is a list of a few things that need to be remembered when planning a wedding.

  1. You’re not going to get it all right.
  2. People love it when you choose a really obscure wedding service venue, followed by a really obscure venue for your reception.
  3. People love it when they go to a wedding service and hear all new songs! So choose the most obscure songs you know!
  4. Think twice before suggesting a wild dress code, and remember: Naked wedding services are never OK!
  5. Remember to actually hire a church… and get people to play the music – if you want music.
  6. Wedding Cake! Everyone loves Wedding Cake. Get plenty of Wedding Cake!
  7. Don’t worry about remembering about where the wedding rings are. Someone will remember where they end up.
  8. When planning a seating plan, always think about what the most entertaining arrangement would be.
  9. Get the best man to recreate that Best Mans speech from Sherlock.
  10. You’re going to upset at least someone, so make a list of people you know, and ensure you upset at least one person a day until you get married. That way you can make sure you upset everyone in equal measure.
