“We became quickly stressed out by our ant invasion”

We had a busy day yesterday. Out from 11-6. We went on a nature trail, fed the ducks and then visited family. We arrived home feeling quite tired and needing to get dinner on before bedtime only to find out the house had been invaded by ants!! It isn’t the first time it’s happened. About a week ago they started …

“I take him for granted”

I’ve been feeling very grateful lately. For having the husband I do. I take him for granted really, everything he’s done and keeps doing for us. P1 isn’t biologically his child, but right from the beginning he’s taken her under his wing and very quickly she called him “Dad” out of her own choice. Hubby didn’t have to do this, …

Kiddicare Sleep Dairy Project – Part 2

During February I was asked to write a sleep diary for Kiddicare. Along with other mums/dads they wanted to study various baby’s sleep patterns. I really enjoyed seeing just how much sleep I got and how much P2 did too! At the time, P2 was having her pretty awful stage of sleep and it’s still not much better from then. …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 3 Months

To my Princess 2, This month has seen the introduction to tantrums. I dread to think what you’ll be like during the “terrible 2s” stage. You’ll throw yourself onto the floor without a thought for what body part, usually your head, will get damaged in the process. I have to admit, seeing a tiny toddler sitting on her bum with …

Letter To My Nan – 8 Months

Hi Nan, I’ve been thinking about you a lot this month. Asking myself questions that will never be answered, like what your last thought was and whether you were in pain when you passed away. My other Grandad passed away. He’ll be up there with you somewhere and I hope you can share many stories from my childhood with him. …

Pregnancy Diaries – 15 Weeks #3

It seems a little surreal that I’m only 5 weeks away from being half way through my pregnancy!! I was looking back on my pregnancy photos with P2 and I had quite a clear “baby bump” by 16 weeks. Well right now I simply look like I’ve eaten too many cakes. There isn’t a hard baby bump appearing at all!! …

“My daughter is far stronger than I will ever be”

Children are amazing little creatures. The strength they have and the determination is incredible. I saw all of this inside my tiny 5 year old daughter when she went through her growth hormone test yesterday. We arrived at the hospital at 8:45am. My Grandad came to support whilst hubby had P2 for the day. P1 hadn’t asked for food or …

Funky Giraffe Bib Review

Typically, bibs are a must have accessory to weaning and feeding times. I personally rarely used them. I figured that kids will get messy and nothing can be so bad that our washing machine can’t handle – right?! With baby led weaning fully established and P2 being nearly 14 months old we’ve started to allow her to feed herself her …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 2 Months

To my Princess 2, Apparently you’re 14 months now!! It’s crazy. You’ve achieved so much but still have a whole lifetime ahead of you to learn and achieve so much more. This month we told you about your new baby sibling, not that you understand us! For the past year I’ve been cherishing every single moment of you growing up, …

Pregnancy Diaries – 12 – 13 Weeks #3

Apparently I’m entering the second trimester already! I’m supposed to start feeling more energised and less sick from now on… We’ll see… Week 12 saw a huge wave of exhaustion and dizziness. Hubby told me to enjoy this pregnancy as it will be my last but it’s very hard to enjoy it when you feel so darn rubbish!! I’ve literally …

“I’m pregnant with baby number 3!”

I’ve lost complete motivation in my blog the past two months and finally I can explain why. It’s been the fact I’ve been unable to speak about my life fully as we’ve had a secret to keep. That secret is rather scary, will change the dynamics of life as I know it. Deep breath in… We’re adding another member to …
