IMG_5965.JPG

Planning a holiday can be extremely stressful, add children to it and you can end up wondering if going on holiday is really worth all the stress!

“Googling Jaundice tests didn’t help with my nerves”

IMG_5906-0.JPG

On Thursday we arrived up the hospital for P3s jaundice blood test. I felt really nervous about the whole trip because I wasn’t exactly sure what would be happening. Of course, Googling Jaundice tests didn’t help with my nerves. We were a little early so had a cheeky McDonalds breakfast. Our appointment was at 10:30 but typically we didn’t get ... Read More »

IMG_5873.JPG

I now have two daughters under the age of two. There’s actually 19 months 3 weeks and 2 days between P2 and P3. We debated for a long time whether we’d need a double pushchair. I’d researched many brands and had one that I desperately wanted, the Mountain Buggy Duet. I wanted a side-by-side double. I’d borrowed a tandem style ... Read More »

“I was always rubbish at doing homework on time”

IMG_5752.PNG

When I look back on my school years, I was quite academic. I actually enjoyed school and the topics I found interesting I did well in like Art. But I was always rubbish at doing homework on time. I’d get so many lunch time detentions or after school ones because of homework related issues. I generally suffer with organisation so ... Read More »

IMG_5734.JPG

I’ve been a Mum for nearly six years. I’ve spent a lot of those years complaining of sleepless nights, especially and more particularly the past 20 months. However, after last night, I realised that I’ve never truly had a sleepless night and it really should have just been me moaning about broken sleep. Last night, I got a total of ... Read More »

P3 is now a week and one day old. It’s gone so fast yet so slowly too. Each day seems to roll into one as I see nearly every hour during the night.

My Birthing Partner

I was very nervous about hubby being my only birthing partner with P2.

This time round I felt confident that hubby was all I needed and I wasn’t wrong. If ... Read More »

“My boobies are the size of my baby’s head!”

IMG_5622.JPG

My boobies are the size of my baby’s head! Bigger in fact and whilst inside a bra are quite attractive. Oh but there’s nothing glamorous about my boobies. They’re full to the brim, they’re firm, they’re leaking and they’re so painful that if anyone or anything touches them they’re likely to lose a limb. Yup, my milk has well and ... Read More »

Sibling Adjustments

IMG_5599.JPG

When I was pregnant we had many conversations about having a new baby with both P1 and P2. Obviously P2 had no idea what we were talking about apart from the fact we kept pointing to my belly and saying there was a baby in there. We never had any worries about P1 adjusting, she had a struggle when P2 ... Read More »

“I’d forgotten how painful after-birth pains were”

IMG_5583.JPG

I’d forgotten how painful after-birth pains were. I’ve been topped up on painkillers since the moment P3 was born. Every midwife or nurse that I spoke to at the hospital had said something along the lines of “oh yes especially with your third” when I told them how I was feeling. Great!!! The pains feel like extremely bad period pains, ... Read More »
