Sow & Grow with Innocent Drinks

We had such a lovely time at Fruit Towers back in August that when Innocent invited us along again we just couldn’t say no. All five of us headed into London on Tuesday to have some lunch at the headquarters of where my girls favourite drinks are thought of. I The journey was very straight forward but rather stressful with …

10 Reasons Why I’m Not Having Any More Children

We were never sure whether to stay with two or venture into the world of three children. Three seemed scary and now that I physically have three little humans I am 100% sure that I’m not having any more children. I know that is probably a bit of a negative statement to make, especially at just 23 years old but …

Siblings 2016 – February

Literally just last night we entered a new phase in their sibling journey, sharing a room together. Ok, P1 and P2 have shared for about two years now and that has gone so well but yesterday we swapped the rooms around and now all three girls are sharing one bedroom. One bit of space. In an ideal world, P1 would …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #7/52

When we found our little house, I did have worries that we would rapidly outgrow it. There was four of us. For some time P1 had the small room and P2 was with us in the big room. After getting advice from a sleep specialist, we moved P1 into the big room to share with her sister and we had …

How I Manage Bath & Bedtime With 3 Children

If you’ve been a long term reader of my blog you’ll know that bath times have always been something I dread. At the moment we don’t actually have a bath, our rented property just has a shower which is perfect for me when I need to get dressed quickly but for a family with three young children, it’s hard. I …

Our Weekday Morning Routine

My weekdays are busy. There’s always something I need to be doing with one or all three of my girls. I’m lucky that more often than not my Hubby does the actual running kids to school or nursery but I’m the one who prepares. He just gets himself up, washed and dressed. Here’s what a typical school/nursery run morning looks …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 3 Years

To my Princess 2, When you woke up this morning you were able to spend your last two hours as a 2 year old with your family opening presents. Three years ago at 9:15am you entered this world. A chunky little bundle with no hair. You are now 3 years old with plenty of hair and plenty of personality. In …

Little Dish Go Gos Review

It’s been nearly 3 weeks since we significantly reduced the amount of milk P2 has during a 24 hour stretch and it’s been going really well. One thing that I have noticed is that she has been super hungry. Literally anything and everything goes which feels like we are being eaten out of house and home. I’ve been looking out …

We Are All Poorly

It all started on Wednesday. P3 had a restless night which is a little unusual for her but we headed off to playgroup blaming it on the new bottom tooth that was poking through. She was super clingy which is very unlike her and even the other mummies commented on it. She felt a little hot so I took her …

Storytime Magazine Review

I loved reading as a child, I still love reading now, and I’m a strong believe in having something physical to read rather than a digital copy of something. As a toddler, P1 loved books but as she’s getting bigger and learning to read by herself I have seen that love deteriorate. I think I have been focusing so much …

Becoming a new parent brings you so many responsibilities. One of the most important things is keeping your child safe at all times.

ISOFIX was something that confused the …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 4/52

Last Sunday we had woken up to glistening snow and spent the morning playing in the cold. This Sunday we woke up and headed to Essex, my hometown, to visit my Grandad. We went for breakfast at the Roebuck then off to get P1 and P3 some new shoes. Every time I mention my Grandad it’s always about feeling so …

“I may have a daughter with autism”

Imagine giving your child a few packets of sweets, a can of cola and just to top it off nicely a bowl of ice cream topped with sprinkles. You watch their eyes widen, their body begin to go at extra fast, their voices louder and they become uncontrollable. That’s what it’s like to live with P1 right now. As soon …

A Snowy Winter Morning

I woke up today to our little village being covered in a dusting of white. We’d had a few flakes yesterday evening and at 2am when P2 woke asking for her usual milk, which was refused, I saw out of the window the glow of the snow in the dark. I was so excited for morning to come but by …
