I want to be a woman not just a mum!

Last year my hubby bought me a subscription to the Cosmopolitan magazine. I was given a choice as to what I wanted but I chose this one because I wanted something separate from the topic of parenting. I’ve never been into fashion, makeup or girly things. I’ve always worn whatever the heck was in my wardrobe which has either been …

Being A Mum

Being a mum means carrying her in my womb. It means watching her take her first breath. Being a mum means changing her nappy for the first time and the 1000th time.  It means dressing her for the first time and the 1000th time. Being a mum means watching her open her eyes to the world. It means holding …

“Hubby does all of his tasks without moaning”

I’ve struggled with motivation for a long time and if you’re a regular reader you’ll know that. I’m someone who would much rather be lazying on the sofa in my pjs than running around a supermarket. I rely so much on my hubby. He takes care of the bills, the clothes washing, the school run, the food shop and the …

Would You Get Your Child’s Ears Pierced?

Earing piercing in children is certainly a contraversial topic. It’s been labelled as child abuse and parents that get their children’s ears pierced are very openly abused themselves with hurtful comments. I’m one of those parents. I had P1s ears pierced at 6 months old, I wanted her to have the choice of whether she wanted to wear earrings as …

Decorate Your Own Wooden Train by National Railway Museum Review

I hate mess. I hate messy play. I’m a pretty boring parent I guess. We have a huge plastic box absolutely overfilling with art stuff. Believe it or not I’m actually quite an arty person deep down. For me to get the art box out requires energy, patience and the right mind set. Today I had one of those moments …

Aden + Anais Starburst Cozy Plus Sleeping Bag Review

I don’t use blankets during nap or night time with P3. I’m scared to. I get a sickening feeling in my tummy when I see photos of other babies wrapped up in a blanket. I used blankets for P1 every day and I used them for P2 only less regularly. When P3 was born the only way she’d sleep was …

“It was the icing on the cake” – Last Day of Half Term

We’ve had an exciting ten days off school for half term but the end half really has seemed to drag. We’ve done something every day this week which is huge for us as we tend to use the half term to relax. We’ve been to soft play twice, P1 has had a sleepover, we’ve seen my MiL and BiL on …

Johnson’s Baby – So Much More Campaign

I was invited along to the Johnson’s Baby So Much More Campaign launch. Unfortunately I was unable to attend due to feeling completely washed out from a double migraine and with P3 not very well too. I was quite desperate to go. Literally everyone I speak to says that bathtime is their favourite time of the day for many reasons, …

“I wish I could capture every second”

Hubby is on his iPad as he usually is when we settle down in bed and I’m blogging. But there’s something slightly different. There isn’t the sound of a light snoring from P3. It’s been replaced by sniffling, grunting and the sound of her baby babbles. She’s quite content and awake in her SnuzPod. This is the difference. Normally each …

“I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls”

It occurred to me today that I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls. I’ve always thought of soft play as being a place that you can sort of relax and know that your children won’t hurt themselves too much thanks to the soft play equipment. When P2 was born, I went to our local soft play once …

Shoes for a Hyper Mobile Child with Pisamonas

Nothing in the world can prepare you for parenthood. No manual, no blog or person can ever truly describe what it is like to be a parent. They do give you a slight idea and a slight guidance. When P1 arrived into this world I didn’t expect her to be so ill. I certainly didn’t expect her to arrive seven …
