A Letter to my Toddler Going Through The Terrible Twos

To my Toddler, As you throw yourself around the room with legs flailing because you weren’t allowed an ice cream at 7am, I feel myself getting frustrated already. The tears are falling from the argument we’ve had over milk and you have been shrieking for over 20 minutes. You smacked me square in the nose so I told you off …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Start Day

Today I’ve started my healthy eating diet with Juice Plus. It means a lot more to me than just losing weight. It’s about my health.

6 Week Check Up and Body Image Problems

We had our six week check up today. I was asked whether my bleeding had stopped, which it has about two days ago, apparently it takes longer for a breastfeeding mother to finish the post-partum bleeding which I found quite interesting to know. I was asked how the feeding was going and how my breasts are, well I think my …

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 get a lot of pressure and discomfort in my lower bump which the midwife said is due to the fact P3 has been snuggled low in my pelvis pretty much the whole time, especially now. I’ve managed to pack the girls bags now and …

30/31: My Earliest Memories

I have quite a few memories from my childhood. I can’t quite pick one as being earlier than the other. 1) We lived adjoined to a veterinary surgery, the one where my mum worked, and I have so many memories of being there.

Pregnancy Diaries – 34 Weeks #3

I’m getting increasingly nervous now. The fact that I have 6 weeks until my due date, but only 3 weeks until I’m classed as “term”. It’s scary. You’d think that I would be a pro at pregnancy and birth by now but I think the fact I only gave birth last year means that it’s all still so fresh in …
