Monday Sad Face

Feeling the Monday blues terribly this morning. I’m back to doing the nursery school run for P1. She’s due there for 9:30 and it’s currently 8:45 and I’m not even out the bath yet! Yup, I’m blogging from the bathtub. Luckily, the nursery is only 5minutes away. I’m really missing my OH too, and that routine of him going to …

I’m Not Hungry

With growth tests looming, I’m trying to make sure P1 eats as much as she can. However, this is proving rather difficult with a child who seems to have an eating disorder. I’m petite, so P1 will never be a big girl but her appetite is appalling, and in all honesty worrying! I remember when she used to happily eat a …

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

I’ve cried tonight. It’s amazing how the human body reacts to certain things. I read a blog post tonight about a lady going through one of my biggest fears. Cot death. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Just writing those words makes me want to cry my eyes out, hold my daughters close. I like to know I can protect them from …

New Look For LWPP

Welcome to my new, very sexy, very self hosted blog! I’d love to say I had the brains and patience to figure self hosting out by myself… I didn’t. I owe this to my OH. Who has literally spent hours doing it. I’ve still got to go through all my hundreds of photos and change the locations. I’ve done 2 …

Friday’s Child Is Full Of Art

I had a good night sleep again with P2, unlike the night before. She had her last feed and was down in her Moses basket at 10:30. Didn’t wake until 3:30 and then had her feed and was back in her Moses by 3:40. Where she stayed asleep until 6:40. Excellent. We then had a knock on the door and …

Epidural – I May Have Offended – Sorry

I think this post will upset quite a few people but the topic has come up a lot recently, what with One Born Every Minute be on the telly again. I don’t mean to upset anyone, these are my own opinions! Epidurals. (When asked for, not in emergency cases like caesareans) I’ve always been quite open to the idea of …

DP – Imperfection

I only received the DP in my email late last night and I haven’t had any inspiration to join in some previous ones but this one I have. So I don’t care that it’s slightly late. Imperfections — in things, in people, in places — add character to life. Tell us about an imperfection that you cherish Although I truly …

To My Princesses – Letter 3

To my Princesses, This week feels like it has been really busy but in reality, looking back I don’t think it has been that busy. I have made a schedule for our home, a cleaning schedule so that has pretty much taken over my days now which is great really. I’m finally getting into a routine so we can all …

New Hair

I made it. And I surprisingly didn’t feel that emotional whilst I was gone. My boobs clearly missed P2 as I felt them filling up half way through my hair being coloured. Apart from that it was quite nice to not have to lug a carseat around or worry that P1 is walking too close to the road etc. Do …

I’ve Just Got To Be Brave

She’ll be in the fantastic, well experienced, loving hands of my MiL. Am I still nervous? YESSS! I don’t even know what exactly I’m nervous of. The emotions I’ll feel leaving her? …

Caesarean Awareness Month

It’s Caesarean awareness month according to the NHS Twitter account. I’m going to hold my hands right up in the air and say that I’ve always thought of planned c-sections as the easy way out – too posh to push. And emergency sections being a good thing because you don’t get the pain of pushing a baby out of your …

Morning Joys

Two weeks ago, P2 was just a little baby that flapped her arms and legs about and didn’t do much else. Now, I spend my day talking to her a lot more and pulling faces just so I can see that beautiful smile of hers just one more time. A week ago, she’d only smile in the mornings. Now, she …

You Either Love It Or You Hate It

I ventured into Hobbycraft today to grab some bits to start off the girls Arts & Crafts box. What an expensive shop! P1 walked in and the first thing she said was “Wow this is amazing!” And that’s the exact same reaction that I had when I used to go with my Mum and spend many hours going down every …

Grandparents Are The Bomb

My Grandparents are without a doubt the most amazing people in my life.

Saturday Sleep

Yesterday was a very chilled day. My OH has been feeling pretty yucky for the past few days, probably caught from P1, so just wanted a day of relaxing. P1 spent the whole day upstairs in my brothers room with my Mum and stepdad – they are decorating it for when he gets back today from seeing his Dad. Living …

I Never Imagined

Blogging has become a huge part of my life. Before I started Life With Pink Princesses I had a blog over at blogspot, over there I only posted a couple of times a week. But here, I clearly post more, this is because I love the feedback I get and the ease of connecting with other bloggers. I had my …

A Squishy Read

Just a quick review because I’m watching the Grand National. We’ve been given so many things for P2. We’ve been ultra lucky from our friends and family. We have bags and boxes full of toys ready for when P2 needs them. Yesterday, P1 found a soft book that she wanted me to read to her. So I got both girls …
