Letter To My Nan – 2 Months

Hi Nan, Life in Kent finally feels like home. I know you were really unhappy when we told you about the move but I also know that you can see we are happier over here. P1 is doing so well at school! We are all so proud. She’s basically reading short stories on her own, you know the Biff and …

“yet another migraine with aura”

P2 woke once in the night again. 5am. I woke up actually feeling more tired though. I had a nice chilled morning researching bits for our new business when I got up to get some food and just like before I experienced yet another migraine with aura. After a lay down and a nap I feel ok now, luckily no …

“A perfect little girls room”

We’ve done the room transition and swap around. I say we… It was actually my hubby and SFiL. I just had the task of tidying up afterwards. We had to cram all of P1s toys into the bathroom so we could move it all over. I haven’t got any before photos. My hubby, P2 and I was in the big …

“She didn’t really seem excited about seeing me”

I can’t believe that it’s November already. Well it’s actually now the 2nd, why am I not asleep yet? I travelled back to Essex this afternoon to pick P1 up from my Mums. I left at 3:30 expecting to miss rush hour on the way there, this did not happen, the traffic was horrendous!!! However, the takeaway pizza soon took …

“We won’t be trick or treating for Halloween”

P1 has been enjoying a few days and nights with her Nanny, Grandad and Uncle B back in Essex. She’s been there since Tuesday evening and I feel completely lost!!! I’m used to leaving her, or not seeing her but it’s been really odd this time. Since moving out and becoming a stay at home mum I’ve developed a routine, …

“Not only was P1 sent home from school we also ended up in A&E”

It never occurred to me that I’d get a phone call to collect P1 from her first day at school. But it was just our luck. The morning went swimmingly. I woke P1 up, gave her the porridge I’d cooked for her, got her dressed, teeth and hair done. She was excited about wearing her princess backpack and we went …

Miley Cyrus VMA 2013 Performance

A round of applause goes to the woman who’s given our girls someone so fantastic to aspire to be!! NOT!! Take a look at exactly what I’m talking about here. Please somebody tell me what the heck has happened to the sweet innocence of Miley Cyrus. To be honest, I haven’t followed her life since her movie/film and back then …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 8 Months

To my Princess 1, I seriously cannot believe that you’ll be starting school in less than two weeks. It seems like such a long time ago that you were a tiny baby like your sister and so dependent on me. You’ve grown up ridiculously this past month. Finally able to put your own clothes on and the majority of the …

“I’m not ready to not see her for 9hours a day”

It dawned on me today that I should have been returning to work in two weeks time. It got me thinking, how I would have coped if I was about to embark on work life with two children, being waist deep in wedding planning, sorting P1s school equipment out and having my Nan back in the hospital. It would have …

“She was hysterical!”

We had the absolute day from hell with P1 yesterday. Anything we said to her just wasn’t good enough. She repeated over and over. Did things we told her not to do. And then when it came to bedtime… Oh didn’t she perform! Firstly, she took ages to persuade to go to the toilet. I had to repeat myself over …

“she turned towards me and instantly fell asleep”

I’ve been trying, loosely, to wean from co-sleeping. I say loosely because I usually get more and better sleep when we co-sleep so I’m fine with her in bed. My OH misses our cuddles and waking up to me in the morning. He now wakes up, more often than not, to P2 smacking him in the face. Not quite so …

Radical Reward Charts Review

P1 received a new reward chart from Radical Reward Charts. It arrived at a wonderful time, when I was at my complete wits end with her behaviour. I allowed her to choose which design she’d like – she chose Wacky Wildlife. We asked Radical Reward Charts to have P1s picture made into a mover. This was to help children be …

Memory Lane

Just a short muddled post this evening. P2 is pretty much sitting up on her own now. It kind of happened overnight. Ok, she’s still toppling over every now and then but she’s amazing. I just cannot believe how grown up she is and she’s in to everything, especially food! I spent the majority of today sorting out wedding bits. …

Feeling Calmer

I cannot believe how grown up P1 is. She’s always been very mature for her age but recently she’s been outstanding especially with her little sister! In the past few days she’s been so helpful. Actually asking to change P2s bottom, get her dressed and give her a bottle. This evening she wanted to feed her sister her dinner, and …
