Getting Through The Sickness Bug

I suffer quite badly with migraines and I spend nearly every day worrying about when my next one will come on. They happen with no warning and I haven’t quite found out what the triggers are yet. Parenting with a migraine is absolutely awful. All you want to do is hide away and sleep it off but you just can’t …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #16/52

This weekend has been a bit of a wash out. It’s the first weekend that we’ve had a fully fixed and working car since the beginning of March. We had plans to go for the evening swim we’d agreed to do every two weeks but only ever managed to do it once because of the car. Saturday morning we’d agreed …

My Baby No Longer Loves Me

Under all the activities and excitement we’ve had the past few days, P3 has had a week where she’s been quite under the weather. The poor little mite has dealt with a lot in her little life already and when this cold hit her, it really hit hard. All week I’ve been wiping snot from her nose, changing some nasty …

“I’ve been my daughters comfort when she’s feeling her worst”

I told myself last night that I had certain jobs to do today. Our easter holiday break begins this Thursday and quite frankly our house is a pig sty! Everyone, except me typically, have come down with colds and I’ve slowly watched the mess creep on top of me. I’ve put caring for the kids and hubby above the cleaning, …

Co-Sleeping With My Third Baby

As a parent, we want what is best for our children. Of course we do. How we parent is largely influenced by our own upbringings and more nowadays by the internet. We have the input of every medically-trained professional under the sun telling us what is right and what is wrong. Ultimately, as a parent we know our children more …

“We’ve just had a four day weekend”

I am the type of person that is quite content with lazying around the house. After a while it does start to feel like you’re in jail, sharing your cell with screeching children, which is why I now make the effort to attend two play groups a week with P2 and P3. I met a lovely lady well over a …

Christmas 2014

I sort of took a bit of an unexpected blogging break over Christmas. It wasn’t the plan and I wanted to blog but thanks to the newest update of the wordpress app, I’m unable to add featured images or any images without the app crashing. I wasn’t about to compromise on quality for the sake of a few posts so …

“Our house has been filled with germs this weekend”

Our house has been filled with germs this weekend. Hubby has had a cough for a while now but Friday saw P2s temperature rise and her cheeks were bright red. She was due to spend the day with her Grandparents which had to be cancelled, however P1 went for a rescheduled sleepover instead. On Saturday, I woke with a snotty …

“The newborn crying, the demands of a sick child and a bored toddler”

We are being pulled in every direction this week. We have illness, crying, boredom, testing behaviour and exhaustion. P1 has been under the weather since Friday. She came home with a croaky voice but other than that she was fine. It progressed over the weekend into a temperature, sore throat, headache and a cough. She certainly wasn’t herself and spent …

“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 took a little break from blogging”

I took a little break from blogging this week, apart from the letter to my Nan and to P2. I hope you didn’t miss me too much but life has got a little busy and a little out of control. But I’m back!! Hello there. We’ve had a pretty boring Saturday. It sometimes makes me feel quite guilty for P1. …
