Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Sensory Stages Bouncer Review

I feel extremely lucky to have such a close relationship with Fisher-Price. My girls have benefited so much thanks to them, before and after the opportunities I’ve had with them. Our most recent addition has been testing out the 2-in-1 Sensory Stages Bouncer. The Bouncer was really simple to put together. It features a two-sided toy bar, 3 activity toys …

“Googling Jaundice tests didn’t help with my nerves”

On Thursday we arrived up the hospital for P3s jaundice blood test. I felt really nervous about the whole trip because I wasn’t exactly sure what would be happening. Of course, Googling Jaundice tests didn’t help with my nerves. We were a little early so had a cheeky McDonalds breakfast. Our appointment was at 10:30 but typically we didn’t get …

“I was always rubbish at doing homework on time”

When I look back on my school years, I was quite academic. I actually enjoyed school and the topics I found interesting I did well in like Art. But I was always rubbish at doing homework on time. I’d get so many lunch time detentions or after school ones because of homework related issues. I generally suffer with organisation so …

Pregnancy Diaries – 40 Weeks My Due Date

I’m 40 weeks pregnant today I’m sitting with my 10 day old baby girl on my due date. My tummy is still a bit of a wobbly mess but it’s getting there considering I’m not exercising yet. It’s really hard to believe that we have a baby now. These past ten days have gone so quickly and although there’s parts …

“I’ve never truly had a sleepless night”

I’ve been a Mum for nearly six years. I’ve spent a lot of those years complaining of sleepless nights, especially and more particularly the past 20 months. However, after last night, I realised that I’ve never truly had a sleepless night and it really should have just been me moaning about broken sleep. Last night, I got a total of …

My Birthing Partner

I was very nervous about hubby being my only birthing partner with P2. I was convinced I’d need my mum there like I did with P1 because her biological father was pretty useless but hubby proved himself. He stepped up and was amazing. This time round I felt confident that hubby was all I needed and I wasn’t wrong. If …

Organic September with Waitrose

It’s Organic September (Well it was at the time of starting this challenge, a certain little princess decided to make an appearance) and we were challenged by Waitrose to go swap one of our meals each day whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner for a duration of seven days. I’m not an organic buyer. The basic definition of organic food, …

Sibling Adjustments

When I was pregnant we had many conversations about having a new baby with both P1 and P2. Obviously P2 had no idea what we were talking about apart from the fact we kept pointing to my belly and saying there was a baby in there. We never had any worries about P1 adjusting, she had a struggle when P2 …

“I’d forgotten how painful after-birth pains were”

I’d forgotten how painful after-birth pains were. I’ve been topped up on painkillers since the moment P3 was born. Every midwife or nurse that I spoke to at the hospital had said something along the lines of “oh yes especially with your third” when I told them how I was feeling. Great!!! The pains feel like extremely bad period pains, …

Our First Night At Home

We’ve just encountered our first night and morning as a family of five. P3 and I were discharged at 6pm yesterday following some great blood test results that meant she no longer needed antibiotics and therefore was no reason for her or me to be in hospital. We got home at the girls bedtime. I’d promised P1 she could have …

Celebrating Birthday & Wedding Anniversary

Birthdays have never been overly exciting for me. I don’t know why it’s just always seemed like any other day. Last year was my wedding and my birthday sorta got pushed to the side, out of choice, and forgotten in the motion of wedding celebrations. This year has been the first year I can truly remember that’s just been fantastic. …

“I’m the problem!”

I’m the root. I realised that tonight as I watched P2 wriggle, kick, jump, push covers off and attempt to escape out of her bed. I lost count to the amount of times I had to lay her back down and remind her that it’s sleep time. It took hours and that’s when I realised. I’m the problem! Right from …

Pregnancy Diaries – 38 Weeks #3

My 38 week pregnancy with P2 was quite different to this pregnancy. I had terribly itchy skin and was feeling quite ill. This week I’ve been feeling very uncomfortable, especially in the evenings. I’m getting frequent tightenings but only in the evening. It’s like my body is telling me to rest even though it’s pretty much all I have been …

Lorna Drew Catherine Midnight Nursing Bra & Briefs Review

I should probably apologise to you all for the influx of underwear shots on my blog lately but I’ve been really lucky and able to review some fantastic nursing underwear ready for P3s arrival. I’m so fussy when it comes to underwear, nursing or otherwise, so I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity to find out what I like and dislike …

To My Princess 1 – 5 Years 9 Months

To my Princess 1, You’ve started your second year at school. It’s crazy to think you are now a Year 1 pupil. You seemed to settle quite well at the start of school and your behaviour had really improved. But after a couple of weeks and us agreeing to an after school club once a week, your behaviour deteriorated drastically …
