“I’ve entered that world now”

So I’ve entered that world now… The world of questions and people you don’t normally speak to expecting answers and you have to answer otherwise it’s rude! Yeah… That world. It’s been just one day, actually less than that, since I announced to the world that we are having baby number three! It’s a little daunting when people say “you’re …

Whether it’s a 5 year old argument with back chatting and stomping or a 13 month old screaming with her head on the floor between her legs. A day without tantrums would be a day where you check to see if the girls are poorly. We seemed to …

“I’m so nervous about P1 having the growth hormone test”

Last year, P1 had some blood tests and an X-ray to check her growth. We’ve been a little concerned and so was the paediatrician but considering I’m rather small (4ft 8in) we weren’t too worried about the results. Last Friday, we finally had the results back – she’s normal. Well, there’s nothing wrong with her bones anyway. The next step …
