Scissor Addiction

The title of this makes it sound like a really bad post but it’s not! Whilst at my Grandad’s P1 has been learning how to cut things out with scissors. I can’t believe how grown up she is getting.     She’s always asking to use the scissors now, part of me gets all nervous about her chopping her fingers …

Challenge Day#1

After writing a post about how low I have got with P1s behaviour (roarrrrrrr) a fellow blogger introduced me to 365 Day Challenge with The Orange Rhino. This is a challenge where you have to not yell (unless when your child is running across the road etc) for 365 Days, if you break it, you go back to day zero, …

Cracked And Sore

Three days of breastfeeding my nipples became very cracked and sore. Every time P2 latched I’d wince in pain and suffer the whole feed just wondering how long I could cope with this before I was forced to give up. On day four, we visited my MiL and she suggested a nipple cream and that although expensive, Lansinoh was a great product. …

To My Princesses – Letter 4

To my Princesses, This week we have been rather busy. We had a few chilled days at the start with Daddy as his work kept sending him home due to power failure. Saturday particularly was a relaxed day, Nanny, Grandad and Uncle B had gone to Brighton Marathon for the weekend so we all spent the day in bed/in our …

School Disappointment

3:30am – P2 is having a feed. It’s been a restless night so far. Check my emails to see we have already received P1s primary school offer. Nearly burst into tears as she’s not been offered where we applied! We viewed three schools in the area, you are meant to put three schools of choice down. We hated two out …

Roarrrrrrr!

I’m a monster mummy, with a monster child. I hate who I’m becoming at the moment. All I do is shout, lose my patience, get frustrated, moan, cry and basically be a rubbish mother to P1. There’s my precious little baby smiling away at me, where’s my 4 year old… Oh yes there she is doing everything and anything she …

Monday Sad Face

Feeling the Monday blues terribly this morning. I’m back to doing the nursery school run for P1. She’s due there for 9:30 and it’s currently 8:45 and I’m not even out the bath yet! Yup, I’m blogging from the bathtub. Luckily, the nursery is only 5minutes away. I’m really missing my OH too, and that routine of him going to …

I’m Not Hungry

With growth tests looming, I’m trying to make sure P1 eats as much as she can. However, this is proving rather difficult with a child who seems to have an eating disorder. I’m petite, so P1 will never be a big girl but her appetite is appalling, and in all honesty worrying! I remember when she used to happily eat a …

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

I’ve cried tonight. It’s amazing how the human body reacts to certain things. I read a blog post tonight about a lady going through one of my biggest fears. Cot death. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Just writing those words makes me want to cry my eyes out, hold my daughters close. I like to know I can protect them from …

New Look For LWPP

Welcome to my new, very sexy, very self hosted blog! I’d love to say I had the brains and patience to figure self hosting out by myself… I didn’t. I owe this to my OH. Who has literally spent hours doing it. I’ve still got to go through all my hundreds of photos and change the locations. I’ve done 2 …

To My Princesses – Letter 3

To my Princesses, This week feels like it has been really busy but in reality, looking back I don’t think it has been that busy. I have made a schedule for our home, a cleaning schedule so that has pretty much taken over my days now which is great really. I’m finally getting into a routine so we can all …

I’ve Just Got To Be Brave

Just a quick post this morning. I’m about to leave P2 for the first time since she was conceived!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s like a whole year ago! I’m so nervous. She’ll be in the fantastic, well experienced, loving hands of my MiL. Am I still nervous? YESSS! I don’t even know what exactly I’m nervous of. The emotions I’ll feel leaving her? …

You Either Love It Or You Hate It

I ventured into Hobbycraft today to grab some bits to start off the girls Arts & Crafts box. What an expensive shop! P1 walked in and the first thing she said was “Wow this is amazing!” And that’s the exact same reaction that I had when I used to go with my Mum and spend many hours going down every …

Grandparents Are The Bomb

My Grandparents are without a doubt the most amazing people in my life. They’ve always been there to support, guide, tell me off, bail me out with money issues in the past, feed me, teach me and most of love me no matter how smelly my attitude was as a child. My Grandparents babysit P1 every Tuesday and Thursday – …
