10 reasons I have a Boss Baby!


The comedy Boss Baby is out in cinemas. No, I haven’t seen it, although I’ve seen the trailer and heard the ad on radio. The name struck me as fascinating… and my imagination led to this post. BOSS and BABY – two words that pretty much complement one another. As unlikely as it seems (a hapless little being in nappies being your boss?), it is the reality – those little bubs of cuteness-cum-monstrous devils often rule us. And our lives.

Here are 10 reasons my baby is the Boss of the house (and me!)


1. I have to wake up when Little Man wakes up. If I resist, I get constant whining, a toy flung on me or a smelly bum in my face.

2. My day/schedule revolves around him and his activities. When he was little, it revolved around his feeding times and naps.

3. He asks/ pleads/ whines/ throws a tantrum; I give/ can’t resist / give in / do anything to avoid the public tantrum.

4. The television is no more ours (Hubster’s and mine) – the little thief aka Boss Baby has taken over!

5. ‘My’ space is no longer ‘mine’ – every nook and corner in the house is scattered with his toys. Read about it in Your Home: Pre-Baby v/s Post-Baby

6. An extension to point 5 – he has even taken over our bed!

7. We now choose restaurants on the basis of
a) Little Man’s food choices
b) The level of child-friendliness of the place
c) The noise decibels (the noisier the restaurant, the better, it covers Little Man’s loud shrieks)


8. We have to hear his choice of songs in the car; if he doesn’t like a particular song, we have to change it.

9. I love desserts and cake and chocolates. But I can’t eat them in front of Little Man because he won’t let me. He will want it. ALL. So I have to hide and gobble up life’s pleasures…

10. I cannot spend a waking moment without thinking of him. The cheeky boss rules my heart too…

    Haha I loved number seven, I find myself picking places based on these things as well! I once took my baby to a quiet, classy restaurant…rookie error. I spent most of the time outside trying to settle her!

    1. Nicole

      Thanks for popping over Chloe:) Yes, we really have to think and re-think and then think again about eating out with our littles, don’t we? So much planning… and even after that, is it even worth it at times?!

  2. Claire - Life, Love and Dirty Dishes

    They really do take overy don’t they. It gets worse when they have a sibling. There are then 2 people ruling your life and choices, and normally they want different things! I take back everything I ever said about my old bosses. They were lovely in comparison; ) Thanks for linking up to #FridayFrolics

    1. Nicole

      Hahahah, I’m sure your bosses would love to hear that:)

  3. Emma Island Living 365

    Hahaha, I loved your pie chart! All the time I have spent moaning about my ex-bosses and I now realise the meanest bosses live at home with year. Did you know that for at least two years they have forced me to listen to the Frozen CD again and again in the car. It’s torture. I need a pay rise #FridayFrolics

    1. Nicole

      Let it go let it gooooo Emma;) (ok don’t kill me yet!)

  4. Erica

    I have a boss baby too. He even takes charge of the remote. There is no hope!

    1. Nicole

      There is never hope where the telly and remote are concerned, unfortunately:( they are the bosses of what we see! Thanks for popping over Erica
