My Orange Rhino Challenge

I’ve found myself shouting less. Thinking about what I’m doing. Ok, I still have my moments. But on an overall, I’m loads better at controlling my anger towards P1. And what’s better is although she has her moments, her behaviour is gradually getting better. So, I’m stopping the challenge. I figured you probably don’t want to read “no shouting” everyday …

Guilt Ridden

I keep looking at P2 and realising how lucky I truly am. She’s perfect in every way, she’s healthy, she’s growing, she’s developing and she’s feeding. I frequently feel guilty about the luck that has been showered over us. So many women struggle, they struggle to conceive, they struggle to grow a baby, they struggle to feed, they struggle to …

I Think I’m Going To Be Sick!

**Warning Graphical Post Alert – Only For The Eyes Of Experienced Poop And Sick Cleaner-Uppers AKA Parents!** To this date P1 has only ever been sick on me once, that was 1 minute past midnight on New Year’s Day 2009! She was only a week old. And now, four years on, that is the one and only time she’s been …

1AM Mummy Moment

I suddenly woke and ran to P2s cot. She’s in there, has been since 10:30pm, it’s now 1:35am and i don’t normally get woken by her until 3-4am, but I had a heart stopping panic… Why is she so quiet? I’m so silly. She’s sound asleep. Quite happy. I’m not! I miss her dreadfully being by my side. This was …

Cherish and Cherubs Personalised Letter Train Review

I can’t wait to own our first family home. To have somewhere I can put my own stamp on, redecorating and choosing furniture. It’s exciting! I definitely want to focus on decorating the girls room first. Making it all girlie, and I don’t mean only pinks! I’d love to put up those personalised pictures with their names and have pretty …

Co-Sleeping To CotBed

We put P2s cotbed up the day we moved back to my parents house. This was partly because we thought we would be having a premature baby but mainly because it was easier to get all furniture we needed put up before “stuff” took over the bedroom. The cot was there acting as a dumping ground for three months before …

Challenge Day#11

I cannot believe it! I haven’t shouted today. Zero, zilch! I definitely see a huge difference in her behaviour when my OH is around and we are doing stuff as a complete family. She loves it. Very happy with P1 today.

Boys And Their Toys

I’ve had a lovely, busy morning with my OH. We had a meeting at the Ford dealer to discuss a new car. My current Fiesta Zetec is just too small, I have to remove the wheels of the pram for it to fit! I know you’re probably thinking “just get a new pram” I got to test drive a 2010 …

Hello Old Lady

P2 is growing old before her time. Surely at some point in evolution our heads would become adapted to laying down during the first few months of our lives and prevent us from getting a bald patch at the back of our heads!! Surely… P1 suffered from baldness too. Her poor hair rubbed off literally. Now our gorgeous P2 is …

Challenge Day#10

Absolutely fantastic day… Hadn’t raised my voice at all right up until 7pm when I noticed some lovely art all up my mothers lounge wall… Her cream wallpaper. Naughty step was done. And P1 was made to clean the drawings off by herself. Which she did with a massive grin on her face!!!!!! Why oh why can’t she just behave! …

Mum Moment

We have entered the dribbly stage of P2s life. It’s not too bad at the moment, but she frequently looks like she’s for rabbis or something. Little bubbles coming out of her mouth, dribbles down her chin, sometimes a wet patch on her clothes near her neck. It doesn’t help with the fact she has her fingers and sometimes even …

TOTS 100 Bathroom Competition

I don’t normally join in with competitions that require me to post on my blog, mainly because my blog is about my life, not about winning things (apart from blogging awards of course!) But this is different, it caught my eye as I know it’s something that needs doing in my parents house. My mum’s bathroom is small. It’s boring. …

Challenge Day#9

I didn’t shout or raise my voice! I had to repeat myself several times in a firm voice but it wasn’t a shout. Even when she accidentally wet herself again! Tomorrow will be a true test, it’s Friday and that always means lots of shouting… Plus we are having our first full day at home in AGESSSSS. Nightmare!!

Tap

I had my nails done… For the first time in years!!! My paid job, when I’m not on maternity leave or being a mum, is quite hard on your hands. I’d paint my nails and they’d be chipped the next day… Hence why I always changed my nail colour pretty much daily. Well that all stopped when I became a …

Baby Rug – Bug In A Rug Review

I was sent a special baby blanket from Baby Rug this week. I was uber excited to get using it. The weather has been really wonderful so this week we have been quite busy, giving me ample time to test the product out I was a bit concerned that the fleece type material would be too hot for P2 to wear …
