“We are booked to see Disney On Ice 100 Years Of Magic at the O2”

Ice skating holds a very special place in my heart. Before I had P1 I used to attend lessons and was pretty good. I own my own pair of skates and it was the only hobby I stuck with until I got pregnant. Then there’s Disney, who doesn’t love Disney films with all their magic and touching storylines with fantastic …

Coping With Crying

“I need a doctors appointment for my daughter” “Ok, what’s wrong?” “This is going to sound silly, but she’s my third daughter so I know I’m not being stupid but she won’t stop crying and I just need to get her checked” That was the conversation I had last Monday with the doctor receptionist after we’d experienced two or three …

Story Time App Review with Not On The High Street Review

Halloween seems to have jumped upon us with not much warning this year. We haven’t got any outfits for the girls to go trick or treating and I’m feeling a little guilty. Luckily notonthehighstreet.com came to my rescue when they asked me to download and review their Storytime Sounds app. It’s free to download from the App Store. The app …

“It just cannot be healthy to never sleep through the night”

I sound like a broken record really and I know that but I hope that when I look back on each and every post where I’ve moaned about sleep that I will be at a point where I’m actually getting some decent shut eye and can laugh about these days. Right now though, I don’t feel like laughing. I feel …

My 1st Years Personalised Pink Newborn Gifts Set Review

(This review was written during my pregnancy with P3. Currently the outfit is still too big for her but I will be adding updated photos as soon as I can) Compared to my previous two pregnancies I’ve been very delayed in getting things ready. Most likely because I have two children who occupy my every thought for every day. I …

“The post-pregnancy new-mother hormones raged”

Yesterday was an awful day full of P3 crying continuously from 7am until 6pm and having a total of about 15 minutes sleep the whole entire day whilst I also tackled the needs of a very poorly toddler so this morning I’d decided to get the two of them out of the house for some fresh air and use the …

“I definitely need to get my big camera out more often”

Today, I decided to get the big camera out and take some shots of P3. She’s been in the world just over three weeks and we’ve barely any good quality photos of her, they’ve all been on our phone cameras. I took some tips from lovely Mr Internet on how best to take newborn photos and put what I had …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 5 Years 10 Months

To my Princess 1, It’s fast approaching your sixth birthday. It’s very scary how quickly you’re childhood is passing now. This month your newest little sister made her dramatic entrance. I have to admit you didn’t seem to take it very well which surprised us all. We thought that because you’ve done this before everything would just fall into place …

“The newborn crying, the demands of a sick child and a bored toddler”

We are being pulled in every direction this week. We have illness, crying, boredom, testing behaviour and exhaustion. P1 has been under the weather since Friday. She came home with a croaky voice but other than that she was fine. It progressed over the weekend into a temperature, sore throat, headache and a cough. She certainly wasn’t herself and spent …

What can you not bare to leave behind when holidaying in the UK?

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! I couldn’t think of anything worse than going abroad with three young children and my hubby would need a lot of persuading. However, traveling within the UK doesn’t need so much persuasion and …

Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Sensory Stages Bouncer Review

I feel extremely lucky to have such a close relationship with Fisher-Price. My girls have benefited so much thanks to them, before and after the opportunities I’ve had with them. Our most recent addition has been testing out the 2-in-1 Sensory Stages Bouncer. The Bouncer was really simple to put together. It features a two-sided toy bar, 3 activity toys …

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

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 …

“For once I don’t feel annoyed or like I’m losing sleep”

It’s 6am. I’ve been awake an hour with P3. For once I don’t feel annoyed or like I’m losing sleep. I’m worried. Anxious about the day ahead. Yesterday, we had our routine visit from the midwife and we met our health visitor for the first time. The MW weighed P3 – she’s now 7lbs 6oz! We discussed her snuffles and …
