“My last baby is growing up”

Life is being pretty hectic lately. It’s so nice to have a routine back though now that school is in full swing for P1. She’s even started swimming again already and we’ve picked out some clubs that she wants to attend during and after school. Her options are much bigger now she’s in Year 2 too. Then there’s P2 who …

“I wish I could capture every second”

Hubby is on his iPad as he usually is when we settle down in bed and I’m blogging. But there’s something slightly different. There isn’t the sound of a light snoring from P3. It’s been replaced by sniffling, grunting and the sound of her baby babbles. She’s quite content and awake in her SnuzPod. This is the difference. Normally each …

“The first argument of the day was about some play food”

My alarm went at 7:45am. This was the third alarm for this morning and so I knew it was time to push my tired body out of bed and get ready for the school run. P2 woke up and immediately wanted a cuddle, I made sure she took off her nappy and went on the potty first. P1 however was …

She weighed 4lbs 13oz which was a really good weight considering she was nearly two months …

Fancy Dress Party

P1s God-Mother (aka in my blog as GM) celebrated her birthday with all her friends by holding a Film Character themed fancy dress party last night. Getting my costume was very last minute, my OH wore his work suit, P1 her favourite dress up and P2 in her bunny sleep suit… We all had a lovely time. It was actually …

My Stressed Pre-Schooler

Something seems to be troubling P1. I’m not sure if it’s the nursery teaching her about going to school, the fact her biological Dad was mentioned at the hospital last week or even something to do with P2. Recently, she’s been very attached to me. Crying when I drop her off to my GrandParents or getting clearly upset when dropping …

Emotions Running Wild

I have a changed child today. She’s been amazing! As parents we all have our days when we could quite happily lock ourselves in the bathroom and cry. Then we have the days when we look at our children and feel that overwhelming feeling of proudness. Today I felt that. I’ve really needed her to behave today and that’s exactly …
