Letter To My Princess 3 – 3 Years

To my Princess 3, We went a little over board with presents for your birthday this year. Turning three seems like such a big milestone for you. My last baby. Everybody got up really early to celebrate your birthday with you and watch you open all of your presents. You have really changed this past year. I feel like the baby …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 4 Years

To my Princess 2, I have no idea where the last four years have gone and it feels absolutely absurd to think about you starting Primary School in just a few months time. You have this amazingly confident, strong willed personality which I’m struggling to get my head around if I’m honest. I think we clash a bit too much …

Experiencing A Clingy Toddler

I should have known right from the very beginning that this girl was going to be trouble. She was trouble, right from the moment she left the safety of my womb and nothing has eased since. P3 is a very unusual character and she’s been an interesting one to get to know.  P3 has a personality only to be described …

Special Needs Diary #11 – Making Friends & Going On A Sleepover

It feels like turning 8 years old has brought so many new things to P1s life already and it’s only been a few weeks. When she received an invitation to attend a sleepover party with one of her new Brownie friends, I had instant flash backs from my childhood. I remember a couple of sleepovers when there was more than …

Siblings 2017 – January

This is the start of our third year taking part in the Siblings Project. I am pretty grateful that Lucy at Dear Beautiful came up with this linky project. It means that I can watch my girls grow in their relationships all in one place each month. This year I wanted to do things a little differently. I took more …

Special Needs Diary #10 – An Update

So firstly I am changing the format of this series of blog posts slightly. I’ve changed the name from Autism Diaries to Special Needs Diary. This is purely because we don’t have an official diagnosis and with recent medical appointments and conversations, it just doesn’t feel right to give P1 a definite label yet. However, she definitely is a special …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 2 Years Old

To my Princess 3, These past 2 years have been the most exhausting of my life! I remember getting through my birthday feeling thankful that I didn’t have to share my birthday and wedding anniversary with your birthday too. We’d all joked that it would have been funny and just our luck if I had gone into labour. But I …

Siblings 2016 – August

I think every body says it every single month but this year is really zooming by. I am still struggling to understand how at the end of next month I will be a year older and we’ll have a two year old too! My siblings photo for this month was a complete spontaneous capture. I took my big camera to …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #29/52

love, family, parenting, sisters, daughter, bond, family, happy, ipad, play, morning,sunday

It’s been about a month since I posted a My Sunday Photo. Life has been so incredibly busy and I’ve felt a bit guilty for not actually posting because that was the whole point of taking part. But with not having a car, feeling utterly exhausted for the majority of every day, I just had no motivation to sit and …

Siblings 2016 – June

For the first time ever I haven’t had to rush the girls together and wrestle them into a position in a last minute panic. My photos were taken well before they needed to be and I am actually so pleased with them, apart from the blue bubblegum ice lolly lips that P1 and P2 have. The weather has been warmer …

Siblings 2016 – April

This month has seen the girls settle down much better with each other. Of course they still have their horrible bitch fights where they literally attack each other (P1 and P2) with poor P3 copying more and more. I think this is going to be our futures as girls can be pretty mean to each other when they fall out. …

Siblings 2016 – March 2016

Being a member of a 3 part sister bond must be extremely hard. There’s always someone to fight against for attention, for cuddles and generally with each other. I worry daily about their relationships with each other. Part of me feels that P1 is pushed aside due to school, that she doesn’t get very much time with her sisters to …

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 …

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 …

Siblings 2016 – January

For me the Siblings Project starts another year, our second year and once again I’m a little bit late in getting photos and posting. Our weekends are the only time that my girls get to spend quality time as a threesome. The rest of the week is dotted with P3 spending time on her own, or just P2 and P3 …
