Warning – Not For The Faint Hearted

I seriously do not know how I coped through child birth! My Mum helped me redress my wound this morning and I squirmed and screeched like a baby. I also took a proper look at it. My gosh it’s bad! In my opinion. Sorry for the gruesome photo… Thinking I should probably get it checked by the doctor but I …

Daily Prompts – Idyllic

So I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon of the Daily Prompts. My first one being Daily Prompt – Idyllic. What does your ideal community look like? How is it organized, and how is community life structured? What values does the community share? I sometimes dream of the place I’d like to live if I was given the chance to …

Skydiving

For my OHs anniversary present I booked for him to go indoor skydiving at Airkix in Milton Keynes. So at 5:30am I was in the bath getting ready for our two hour journey. P1 is spending the day with her Nanny and Grandad. There’s so much preparation needed for a trip with a newborn. So last night I was packing …

Slow Up Speed Down

In April we find out whether P1 has got into the school we chose. For a lot of parents they’ll be wondering which school their children got into. You are meant to put three choices but we hated the other schools in our catchment area so only put one down. We’ll have to appeal if she doesn’t get in! Anyway, …

Nappy Rumbles

Nearly 4am in the morning and instead of sleeping whilst P2 is happy kicking about her Moses basket I’m awake posting about how stupid I am. I fell asleep with P2 snuggled next to me – as usual. But she woke me up with all the wriggling and bottom burping she was doing. Although she was sound asleep I decided …

Funny Little Things

I love being a Mum. Today I have made a big effort in letting P2 self soothe. I seriously thought I’d end up crying myself but she was so excellent! Not a tear shed for either of us. I fed her, I burped her whilst over my shoulder, then I put her wide awake in her bouncer where she happily …

Expect The Unexpected

I bet we are all guilty of checking health issues online. If you type in your symptoms of a cold if would probably tell you that you could be dying of something completely unrelated. I’ve mentioned before that P1 attends physiotherapy for her lower limbs. She’s been loosely diagnosed with hypermobility – I say loosely because nobody from the physiotherapy …

Comparisons – I’ve Done It Again

I wrote a post about being naughty and comparing my daughters. Well I found P1s Red Book the other day. Even they are different! I immediately went to the weight chart for P1 and looked for the nearest weight to what P2 is at the moment. I know I need to stop comparing – of course they are both different …

I Did It

I’ve been nervous about expressing for a while – trying to decide when the right time would be to do it. I found the courage to express last night. It was prompted by a conversation with my OH a few days ago. We were discussing anniversary presents. I’ve sorted his present but it’s been quite tricky for my OH as …

Baby Wearing – Review 7

I’ve grown to learn that P2 is a baby who just loves mummy snuggles. This isn’t such a bad thing as an overall… But it’s becoming difficult with the life we have. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to just sit around anymore and cuddle. That upsets me. But P1 needs her mummy too and there’s housework that needs to …

Cherished Moments

I collected the girls handprint/footprint plates we made the other week at Clay Cottage. The business is owned by a family member so I feel quite welcome there and it’s somewhere I plan to go more often with both the girls. They have come out absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to be able to hang them up in our …

Happy 5 Weeks Princess 2

Happy 5 weeks Princess 2. I’m still in utter shock at just how different things are with P2. She hasn’t had the “boot camp” of Special Care like P1 who was pretty much forced to settle herself in the incubator. P2 however struggles can’t settle herself, she has to be held or have boobie for her to fall asleep. She’s …

Little Miss Chatterbox

We’ve been having an issue with P1. I’m sure or at least I hope that all parents struggle with this issue with their children at some stage. Interrupting when others talk. Please tell me I’m not the only one?! It doesn’t matter who you are, where you are or what you are doing she’ll interrupt. Even when told to “sssshhhh” …

I’m Growing Up

We all battled our colds and viewed a house yesterday. A house for sale. We viewed one of three , 3 bed terraced houses that were for sale through the HomeBuy scheme for shared ownership – which meant potentially we could own our first home a bit quicker than expected. It was on the smaller side of what I’d hoped …
