The A-Z of strops 

My youngest daughter is super cute, super funny, super feisty – and super stroppy!

After I’d posted a number of photos on Facebook of her in a mard, a friend suggested I should do an A-Z list of them – so here we are!!

A – Ambleside – in a strop because she couldn’t go waterski-ing with her siblings, but it’s ok – if she turned around in the pushchair we couldn’t see her….

Strop - Ambleside

Strop - Ambleside 2

B – Bluestone in Wales – there were a few from this trip!

S for stocks

C – Crazy Golf (this is also similar to my face when forced to play the ridiculous game!)

Georgia - crazy golf strop

D – Dubai, on a bed, with FILTHY feet!

Dirty feet

E – Everyone else has a birthday before me (this is technically correct as she’s a November birthday – and she doesn’t understand the concept of time) This was on her sister’s 11th birthday

Strop - rug

F – Fence at Bluestone

F for fence

G – Genting Arena, about to watch Disney on Ice

H – home, post school run, refusing to get out of the pushchair

Strop - home pushchair

I – If I cover my eyes no one can see me being stroppy

Strop - if I cover my eyes

J – Juha’s Journey Lazy River at Wild Wadi – not a full on strop, but definitely not loving it…

K – Kings Norton Rhinos – whilst watching her big brother play rugby

L – Lagoon (Blue) changing rooms – see also S and U for the full range of this strop! This is where she’d fallen asleep mid strop…….


M – Mine Train ride at Alton Towers – think it totally traumatised her!

Strop - mine train

N – naughty step, on a Friday night, for pulling her sister’s hair

Strop - naughty step

O – Oxfordshire, at some friends for the weekend in their local park

Strop - Govans

P – Photoshoot for my parents’ birthdays – annoying she wouldn’t behave, but the results were quite cute pictures!



Q – Queen of clean hands – only a mild strop over excessive sugar on her doughnut making her fingers sticky

Strop -queen of clean hands

R – Restaurant on Grandad’s 70th birthday

Strop - Becketts

S – Swimming baths whilst on holiday at Bluestone


T – Towers of Alton (I know, I’m pushing it a bit with the whole alphabet thing!) Not wanting to go in the pushchair, or walk…..

Strop - Alton Towers

U – Uncle Tim having to carry her back after falling asleep mid strop (see S and L above!)


V – Vale do Lobo – this is the FIRST EVER STROP PHOTO – in a lovely Chinese restaurant, where she announced ‘I am very cross and very shouty’

G strop

W – Windermere, on the lake, not loving the whole boat thing

Strop - Lake Windermere

I think we might need to save X, Y, Z for any particularly impressive ones before she grows out of it (please let that be soon!!)

I think this is pretty much a definite #wickedwednesday post for BrummyMummyof2’s linky!!

  2. This is very funny! I have one like that, and the younger one takes the mickey and copies her but in a whiney way. The smallest things send sassy into a complete meltdown.
