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 …

Challenge Day#1

After writing a post about how low I have got with P1s behaviour (roarrrrrrr) a fellow blogger introduced me to 365 Day Challenge with The Orange Rhino. This is a challenge where you have to not yell (unless when your child is running across the road etc) for 365 Days, if you break it, you go back to day zero, …

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 …

School Disappointment

3:30am – P2 is having a feed. It’s been a restless night so far. Check my emails to see we have already received P1s primary school offer. Nearly burst into tears as she’s not been offered where we applied! We viewed three schools in the area, you are meant to put three schools of choice down. We hated two out …

Sock Ons Review

I’ve lost count of the amount of socks I’ve lost during P1s life. So many times I’ve looked at her to find one foot absolutely freezing and the other nice and snug, that missing sock never to be found again. There’s definitely a sock monster lurking. One day when out shopping my mum found a new little invention called Sock Ons. At first …

Roarrrrrrr!

I’m a monster mummy, with a monster child. I hate who I’m becoming at the moment. All I do is shout, lose my patience, get frustrated, moan, cry and basically be a rubbish mother to P1. There’s my precious little baby smiling away at me, where’s my 4 year old… Oh yes there she is doing everything and anything she …

Monday Sad Face

Feeling the Monday blues terribly this morning. I’m back to doing the nursery school run for P1. She’s due there for 9:30 and it’s currently 8:45 and I’m not even out the bath yet! Yup, I’m blogging from the bathtub. Luckily, the nursery is only 5minutes away. I’m really missing my OH too, and that routine of him going to …

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 …

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

I’ve cried tonight. It’s amazing how the human body reacts to certain things. I read a blog post tonight about a lady going through one of my biggest fears. Cot death. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Just writing those words makes me want to cry my eyes out, hold my daughters close. I like to know I can protect them from …

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 …

I thought I’d share this with you just incase you haven’t received or know the problems that have been caused: Dear Jodie, You may have seen news about the limits on buying baby milk this week and, as someone who has shown an …

Friday’s Child Is Full Of Art

I had a good night sleep again with P2, unlike the night before. She had her last feed and was down in her Moses basket at 10:30. Didn’t wake until 3:30 and then had her feed and was back in her Moses by 3:40. Where she stayed asleep until 6:40. Excellent. We then had a knock on the door and …

Epidural – I May Have Offended – Sorry

I think this post will upset quite a few people but the topic has come up a lot recently, what with One Born Every Minute be on the telly again. I don’t mean to upset anyone, these are my own opinions! Epidurals. (When asked for, not in emergency cases like caesareans) I’ve always been quite open to the idea of …

DP – Imperfection

I only received the DP in my email late last night and I haven’t had any inspiration to join in some previous ones but this one I have. So I don’t care that it’s slightly late. Imperfections — in things, in people, in places — add character to life. Tell us about an imperfection that you cherish Although I truly …
