Challenge Day#5

Today was a bad day for yelling. It started off amazing! She was so good getting dressed, we were all laughing and dancing about. Then we went round the MiLs and it just went downhill from there. P1 finds it hard to communicate properly with her younger Uncle. He’s nearly 3. One minute they’ll be playing beautifully, the next Uncle …

Dreams Can Come True

It was all meant to be happening in just three weeks time!!! 13th May! I should be doing final dress fittings, final food things and generally …

Challenge Day#4

10AM – First need to raise my voice today, probably because I was hungry and completely not P1s fault that she was grating on me, level 3 for repeatedly telling me she was hungry, despite eating all her breakfast X2. 1PM – Had to firmly tell P1 that she was indeed going to go to her swimming lesson. Level 2 …

Challenge Day#3

10:30AM – Have to raise my voice to level 3, P1 has wet herself for the third day in a row and I’m not pleased! She isn’t a baby anymore and has been toilet trained for over a year now. 12:00PM – P1 starts to walk away from the car and into the car park, luckily no cars but I …

Banana Legs

I’m really missing the ease of uploading from my phone. Since I’ve become self hosted my WordPress App hasn’t been allowing me to post photos, so I’ve lost enthusiasm for the app and am only posting when I get a chance to steal my Mum’s laptop or load up my OHs computer. So I apologise for the lack of posts, …

Challenge Day#2

7:30AM – Ask P1 to get dressed using a very cheerful happy, excited level 0 voice in the hope that my happiness will have a positive reaction with her. It does the trick and she laughs happily as she goes to the toilet and lets me dress her. 7:40AM – P1 happily eats her Rice Krispies without any fuss. 8:00AM …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Saturday Sleep

Yesterday was a very chilled day. My OH has been feeling pretty yucky for the past few days, probably caught from P1, so just wanted a day of relaxing. P1 spent the whole day upstairs in my brothers room with my Mum and stepdad – they are decorating it for when he gets back today from seeing his Dad. Living …

A Squishy Read

Just a quick review because I’m watching the Grand National. We’ve been given so many things for P2. We’ve been ultra lucky from our friends and family. We have bags and boxes full of toys ready for when P2 needs them. Yesterday, P1 found a soft book that she wanted me to read to her. So I got both girls …
