Rubber Stamp It


Do you find yourself repeating the same phrases over and over again as you go about your business week after week? Wouldn’t it be great if you could have these sayings stamped on your forehead so that you can avoid tedious conversations and get your chores done efficiently? Recently I’ve dreamed up a new mumtrepreneurial business concept – a set of old school rubber stamps engraved with a phrase to suit just about any situation. When someone tries to thwart your progress you can merely point to your forehead rather than rudely saying talk to the hand. Of course if you want to be rude, you can always let your middle finger do the pointing.

Here’s what I’ve come up with thus far;

For the shopping centre.

– No I don’t have freakin’ flybuys.

– No I don’t have a freakin’ rewards card.

– No I don’t want to join your loyalty program.

-Do I want to join your mailing list? Gez let me think about that one. Hmm. Absolutely freakin’ not!

– Sorry its not physically possible for me to cram yet another coffee card into my wallet.

– No I can’t spare five minutes to hear about your worthy cause.

– No I can’t spare a dollar.

– Actually I can spare a dollar. I just don’t want to.

– You are right! I can’t control my kids.

Very handy in Colesworths.

For the carpark

– I have two kids. I could be some time here. I suggest you move on.

For clothes shopping

– When I need help with something I’ll ask.

– I have two kids.  I can’t wear white.

For communicating with the man in your life

– Don’t forget its garbage night tonight.

– We need more milk.

– I’m having a computer problem. Please fix it.

– I’m asleep! Don’t bother me.

A generic stamp for all parents


The ultimate stamps for Mumabulous

That’ll be a large skinny cappuccino please. With one.

Boys I’m closed for business. (unless you are Michael Fassbender)

The stamps will be available in a wide variety of colors and fonts. We will also customize the messages to suit your particular lifestyle needs. What do you think Mumrades? Am I onto a block buster product here? What do you wish was stamped on your forehead?

  1. Love it! I need a ‘leave your sister alone!’ one. Of course, not only because Izzy can’t read, she would ignore me. Totally agree with the shopping centre list 🙂

  2. Love it! Can they all be in capitals?

  3. HAHAHA!! I could write a novel of stamps!! My peeves at the moment are other drivers so could you make some for a car? Like DO NOT GET IN THE FAST LANE ON A FREEWAY AND THEN DRIVE 20KLMS UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT!!

  4. I had ‘Out of Order’ stamped on my head a few weeks ago…

    oh yes… repeating ourselves is something all mothers become quite skillful in… and then suddenly we get flashes of our childhood and our mothers saying the same thing to us!!

    Milk is definitely #1 on the husbands list.

    #teamIBOT was here to say hello!

  5. Hahaha! Love it! To my husband: Can you clean your paper from the kitchen table!

  6. Love this list. I would have to have “I’m not listening until you speak kindly”. I feel like I’m saying that enough with my 4-going-on-14 year old at the moment.

  7. I’d order a stack… and I’d use them!!! Promise! 😉 xx

  8. Hahaha yes I can so relate to this. Love it!

  9. Ha ha, thanks for the laugh! I would love one for my office simply stating “Do I look like I give a damn”

  10. Yes!!!! I need a few of these too. Rachel xx

  11. I think this is brilliant. You’re onto a winner!

  12. Brilliant!!!

  13. Hahaha! Oh my goshness I know what you mean!! They should be handed to us in a bag as we leave the hospital with our squishy newborns! lol

    I have a few I more I need:
    “Close the bloody fridge!!”
    “Pick it up or I WILL throw it away!”

    Thanks for linking up lovely! xxx

  14. Hahaha I love it. Best idea ever
