I’m Going Grey!

I’m feeling at a loose end with both the girls. P1 is being an absolute nightmare with her behaviour and eating. She’s ended up in her bedroom for discipline twice today! We don’t do this often but it’s got completely out of hand and it’s the only way she’ll listen and realise. P2 isn’t sleeping. At night. She ended up …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 1, This month I’ve been hearing lots of great things about you from the nursery. Things like you writing your name properly, and talking to the students that come in to help. You seriously are such a social butterfly. I’ve noticed that these past few weeks you’ve become really attached to Daddy. He gets lots of cuddles …

Why Do We Have To Do This?

It seems we’ve hit another brick wall with P1. I hate this. Food is such an issue it’s ridiculous. You need food to survive. So why can’t she grasp the fact that she has to eat!! And that one or two mouthfuls just isn’t enough to sustain her. Breakfast is never an issue. She’ll happily have two helpings; a chocolate …

I’m Vulnerable… Leave Me Alone!!!

Kids are so clever. Ridiculously. Or at least my one is. P1 always knows when we are at our most vulnerable. She’ll choose just the right moments to misbehave and cause a fuss. We had a truly superb day yesterday… We’d been to a play area that we hadn’t been to in ages and we even did some art which …

Maybe Baby

We had a slight break through last night. P2 had her last nap at about 6-7:30pm. We then managed to keep her awake until 10:30. Where she had her feed and I put her down awake with the mobile playing. She didn’t go to sleep straight away, I had to pick her up and give her a bit of a …

Is A Routine Needed

Sometimes I hate being small. Especially as I’m a parent too. Especially being a parent of P2. She’s huge! Very long, against me she looks like a toddler, against anyone else she’s still my teeny baby. We had her weighed today, 13lb 2oz. Last time she was weighed she dropped a line on the growth chart from 50th to 25th, …

Happy Father’s Day

I think Father’s Day is a little unfair. On Mother’s Day all mothers are meant to put their feet up and be completely spoiled rotten. On Father’s Day, all fathers are meant to have lay ins and be doted on…Erm… Doesn’t this happen every day?! My OH is an amazing Daddy. He truly is. He’s come into our life, P1 …

Oh Man!!!!!!

Seriously, I’m exhausted. Quick post this morning. P2 just would not settle in her cot last night. She’s done so well up until then. She woke up so many times I felt like a yoyo. I persevered three times but when the fourth arrived and they’d all been within about 3hours of me going to bed, I gave up. I …

This Is The Life

We tried out a different play centre today. The Fun Factory. It has an indoor ice rink, indoor climbing wall, soft play for ages 0-13yrs and a sensory room. I’m still debating as to whether its better than our usual choice of play. I love that it has more of a variety for the children. I love the sensory option …

First Tastes, Highchair Needed Soon?!

This morning we gave P2 her first taste of something other than milk. She’s 18 weeks old, a little early than the newly recommended 26weeks, but considering I weaned P1 at 4 months I’m quite confident that having a little munch on something wouldn’t harm her. P2 was allowed to try a rusk. She absolutely loved it! Her gums munched …

Little Bird Told Me – Papa Bear Review

I was approached by Little Bird Told Me recently to review a product for them. They gave me the choice of many beautiful toys. Luckily, I’m already a huge fan of their products and we have the Mama Bear and Activity Spiral, I really wanted to review the Birdy Bear Activity Toy but my OH persuaded me to get Papa …

DP – Person Of The Year

You’re asked to nominate someone for TIME’s Person of the Year. Who would it be, and why? My person of the year would be my OH. I’m slightly bias of course, he’s the one person that’s been there for me no matter what. In the past year he has held back my hair countless times whilst I suffer with morning …

Hollyoaks Upset

I was getting rather frustrated with a Hollyoaks story line. I know… It’s only a soap. If anyone watches it, you’ll all know about the Sinead O’Connor storyline. She fell pregnant with Rhys Ashworth’s baby, and has now given her baby to her step-mother. The whole storyline has frustrated me. I hate how Hollyoaks is making young mothers look like …

Bounty Mutiny

Mumsnet has started a campaign to end Bounty Sales Reps being able to go into maternity wards. When I first read about it on Twitter I didn’t think there would be many people against Bounty Reps. But there is! Including me. With P1, they came and asked if I’d like a picture of her. They must have been completely blind, …

Zombie State Of Living

As P2 grows in herself, her sleep pattern seems to deteriorate. Drastically. I’m feeling the most sleep deprived I have the whole 17 weeks and 6 days of her existence in the real world. I don’t even think she’s solely to blame. She didn’t used to fall asleep for the night until 10:30pm, but now she falls asleep somewhere between …
