Mothers cannot resist competing over the best children's birthday parties and clothes for their children, claims a survey.

A Mum Poll survey of 3,000 mothers found 39% cannot help but brag about their children's achievements.

Nearly half wanted their baby to be the first to crawl, walk and talk. And a quarter tried to be the most organised.

While 78% admitted their competitive nature was ''ridiculous'', most said they ''just couldn't help themselves''.

Its easier to transfer the competition to something else rather than have to compete ourselves, innit? Much less stress! lol.

I doubt I'd be like that but you never know.

Well, yeah, of course. If our children are the best then it means that we are the best.

Whenever we've had children's parties in the past we've had adults there too. The kids had kid stuff and the grown-ups had alcohol. Everybody was happy and none of us talked about how well our kids were doing, etc. All this competitive stuff sounds like suburban yummy-mummies who drive their kids to school in Chelsea Tractors and who lunch.
