The 3rd Time Of Moving From Cot To Bed

P2 was just 15 months old when we moved her from cot to bed, or mattress on the floor to be precise. I don’t remember when I moved P1, I’m pretty sure she was much older. I thought we had plenty of time before it would be P3s turn but that time came and on the 23rd February she came …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 16 Months

To my Princess 3, I bet you’re getting bored of reading all these letters when they start with “I can’t believe you’re X months old now”. Well I can’t. I sometimes wonder whether you and your sisters will just stumble upon these letters or if I’m going to print them all off and keep them in a folder for you. …

“It was lovely to have all three running about together”

Around Easter time each year since moving to Sevenoaks, we have been gifted a membership to the local Nature Trail by my MiL. I think originally it was my MiLs way of getting us to go out more because I was a little reluctant during the first 6 months of living here and was happy to spend day in day …

“I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3”

Cosleeping with P2 was not a conscious decision that we’d made. It just happened and we managed to get more sleep despite having a leg in our ribs or our eyes getting poked out. We coslept for around a year on and off. Although it worked for us, I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3 under …

“Having just one child is like going on holiday”

The first weekend of every month we have just P3. The other two go off for a weekend with my Mum. These weekends are strange for so many reasons. One thing that always comes up is that there is always a moment when hubby says “so this is what life would be like with just one”. Hubby was thrown in …

3 Easy Recipes For Children’s Lunches With Bernard Matthews

When P1 first started school she was a packed luncher. She loved it but I absolutely hated trying to find new, filling ideas to put in them each day. She ended up eating chocolate spread sandwiches, some fruit and crisps each day. So as soon as the Government gave free school meals for Key Stage 1, we switched to school …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 14 Months

To my Princess 3, Wow, 14 months! I know I say this every single time but your babyhood is going so quickly and it feels like each time I blink you are doing something new. I have started to stop referring to you as a baby because you are now walking. It is very rare that you crawl and I …

Why Do Babies Cry?

Babies: For newborns, crying is their main way of communicating. Toddlers: Toddlers cry because they’re hungry, tired, uncomfortable or need affection – just like babies. Preschoolers and school-age children: Children tend to cry less as they get older. Once they can talk, it’s much easier for them to tell you why they’re upset and what they need. Why do we …

Mamas & Papas, Joules & Little Green Radicals – A Kids Clothing Haul

I must confess that I don’t really buy P2 or P3 any new clothing. The clothing they wear each day are either second hand, gifted by family or friends and hand me downs from P1. This month has been an exciting one for P2 and P3s wardrobes. We’ve been lucky to receive some gift cards and clothes to review that …

“The reality is I’ve been in my onesie all day sitting on the sofa”

Although I’m posting this today, Tuesday, I’m actually writing it yesterday. Confusing but I wanted to publish this yesterday but the video which is hopefully now below took literally all day to load to my computer. Blooming technology. As I’m writing this there’s a faint sound of snoring, I can hear Hubby downstairs watching YouTube videos and I’m sinking into …

SMA® Nutrition “Come & Wean With Us™” & Competition

When I wrote my first post for the SMA Nutrition Come & Wean With Us campaign a few weeks ago, P3 was quite happily plodding along in her weaning journey with little struggles if I’m honest. Since then our weaning journey has changed quite significantly. P3 is learning to feed herself completely, when I say completely I really do mean it. Everything …

Musical Fun With Moo Music Sevenoaks

The colours are just so magical to watch beneath your feet and watching the leaves float from the trees is so soothing. But …

“The attention just one little human needs is incredible”

This weekend is the usual first weekend of the month when P1 and P2 head back to Essex to spend time with my Mum. I’ve felt mixed emotions surrounding these weekends. The girls enjoy themselves and it gives us space but it hasn’t ever really made life easier. P3 loves to cause enough fuss and demand enough attention to make …

A Video Blog – My Second Birth Story

I am really enjoying making videos for my YouTube channel and although I am still a very, very tiny fish in the ocean YouTube, I still feel quite warm and fussy that my channel is getting views. I have a few videos over there that I haven’t yet shared here, like my Facts & Favourites vlog where I let you …
