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 …

To My Princesses – Letter 5

To my Princesses, It really feels like we haven’t stopped this past week! I started a challenge to help with the amount of shouting I do, and that’s also had quite an impact this week. I really want to be the best Mummy I can be and I know I fail at it, especially recently. I have got into more …

Challenge Day#8

I think we may be starting to see a difference in P1 since I’ve stopped, no.. reduced my shouting. Today, well today was amazing!! She got dressed without a fight, even her shoes, she went to nursery happy and when I picked her up she was fantastic too!! So much so that I treated her to the circus (a post …

Challenge Day#7

P1 was fantastic this morning! I didn’t have to raise my voice at all. 7:45PM – Raised to level 3, but it was a misunderstanding on my behalf so I apologised to her. Bedtime went smoothly too. Good day!

Date Night

My OH and I managed to grab some couple time for the first time since the day before I gave birth to P2! 10 weeks is a long time for us, we used to get couple time at least once a week, usually twice. I missed being with him. So I took the opportunity to put on some nice clothes on, …

A 3AM Update

I don’t know whether what I do is the correct way, but it’s my way and it works for us. I change P2s bum at 10:30PM, just before her last feed. She wakes at 3AM-ish every night, this is usually the only time she wakes. I put her in bed with me for a feed and only change her bum …

Challenge Day#6

9AM – I raised my voice to about a level 6. All we argued about was putting shoes and coats on. That’s how blooming ridiculous it was. I probably didn’t need to shout at her, I could have dealt with it in a mature calm manner – but I just didn’t. I couldn’t. I’m just so fed up of her …

Breast Feeding Support Group

I attended my first ever baby group this morning. It was a breast feeding support group. I don’t want to sound boastful, but I didn’t really need any support. My breast feeding experience has been pretty easy for the both of us, I have plenty of milk and P2 latches perfectly – the only niggle we’ve ever had was right at the …

Challenge Day#5

Today was a bad day for yelling. It started off amazing! She was so good getting dressed, we were all laughing and dancing about. Then we went round the MiLs and it just went downhill from there. P1 finds it hard to communicate properly with her younger Uncle. He’s nearly 3. One minute they’ll be playing beautifully, the next Uncle …

It was all meant to be happening in just three weeks time!!! 13th May! I should be doing final dress fittings, final food things and generally …

Challenge Day#4

10AM – First need to raise my voice today, probably because I was hungry and completely not P1s fault that she was grating on me, level 3 for repeatedly telling me she was hungry, despite eating all her breakfast X2. 1PM – Had to firmly tell P1 that she was indeed going to go to her swimming lesson. Level 2 …

Fisher-Price Woodsy Friends Comfy Time Bouncer Review

I jumped at the chance of reviewing a Fisher-Price bouncer! With P1 I always found it such a struggle to find a bouncer that suited her needs – she was fussy! A basic, cheap bouncer didn’t settle her. A swinging one with music didn’t settle her. One that went from side to side, music and vibrations also, didn’t settle her. …

Challenge Day#3

10:30AM – Have to raise my voice to level 3, P1 has wet herself for the third day in a row and I’m not pleased! She isn’t a baby anymore and has been toilet trained for over a year now. 12:00PM – P1 starts to walk away from the car and into the car park, luckily no cars but I …

Banana Legs

I’m really missing the ease of uploading from my phone. Since I’ve become self hosted my WordPress App hasn’t been allowing me to post photos, so I’ve lost enthusiasm for the app and am only posting when I get a chance to steal my Mum’s laptop or load up my OHs computer. So I apologise for the lack of posts, …

Challenge Day#2

7:30AM – Ask P1 to get dressed using a very cheerful happy, excited level 0 voice in the hope that my happiness will have a positive reaction with her. It does the trick and she laughs happily as she goes to the toilet and lets me dress her. 7:40AM – P1 happily eats her Rice Krispies without any fuss. 8:00AM …

Scissor Addiction

The title of this makes it sound like a really bad post but it’s not! Whilst at my Grandad’s P1 has been learning how to cut things out with scissors. I can’t believe how grown up she is getting.     She’s always asking to use the scissors now, part of me gets all nervous about her chopping her fingers …
