“My daughter is far stronger than I will ever be”

“My daughter is far stronger than I will ever be”

Children are amazing little creatures. The strength they have and the determination is incredible. I saw all of this inside my tiny 5 year old daughter when she went through her growth hormone test yesterday. We arrived at the hospital at 8:45am. My Grandad came to support whilst hubby had P2 for the day. P1 […]

“I then explained how we’d be putting magic cream and plasters on her arms and hands”

So we are fast approaching P1s growth hormone test… So fast it’s actually tomorrow! I hadn’t mentioned the whole thing to her properly, just a couple of “we’ll be going to hospital soon” a week or so ago, but today I’ve had to explain everything to her so that tomorrow isn’t so scary and unknown.

Funky Giraffe Bib Review

Funky Giraffe Bib Review

Typically, bibs are a must have accessory to weaning and feeding times. I personally rarely used them. I figured that kids will get messy and nothing can be so bad that our washing machine can’t handle – right?!

As a child, I grew up with a mum who’s career was a veterinary nurse. We actually lived attached to a veterinary clinic… When I […]

“This is even worse than when she was newborn”

“This is even worse than when she was newborn”

Last night was night four that P2 has been up every hour. It seems to have happened with her illness but she’s not poorly anymore and seems to have made it a habit. I thought we’d finally cracked, nearly, her sleep patterns. She’d wake up in the morning at 7:30am, have just one nap a […]

Pregnancy Diaries – 14 Weeks #3

I’m at that stage where I just look like I’ve been eating too much chocolate cake… Oh wait I have! I’m struggling to dress myself as I’ve always worn quite tight items of clothing. I feel fat and frumpy in anything I dare to wear. However, my boobies are slowly creeping towards my breastfeeding size […]

Extra Narrow Swing Shut Safety Gate from Tippitoes

I’ve very rarely used stairgates in P1s life span. The last time I used them was when I shared a house with one of my friends and her daughter. P1 has always understood, always been slow and careful when moving herself about especially up and down stairs. Then P2 came along, and we moved out. […]
