New Hair

I made it. And I surprisingly didn’t feel that emotional whilst I was gone. My boobs clearly missed P2 as I felt them filling up half way through my hair being coloured. Apart from that it was quite nice to not have to lug a carseat around or worry that P1 is walking too close to the road etc. Do …

I’ve Just Got To Be Brave

Just a quick post this morning. I’m about to leave P2 for the first time since she was conceived!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s like a whole year ago! I’m so nervous. She’ll be in the fantastic, well experienced, loving hands of my MiL. Am I still nervous? YESSS! I don’t even know what exactly I’m nervous of. The emotions I’ll feel leaving her? …

Caesarean Awareness Month

It’s Caesarean awareness month according to the NHS Twitter account. I’m going to hold my hands right up in the air and say that I’ve always thought of planned c-sections as the easy way out – too posh to push. And emergency sections being a good thing because you don’t get the pain of pushing a baby out of your …

Morning Joys

Two weeks ago, P2 was just a little baby that flapped her arms and legs about and didn’t do much else. Now, I spend my day talking to her a lot more and pulling faces just so I can see that beautiful smile of hers just one more time. A week ago, she’d only smile in the mornings. Now, she …

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 …

Grandparents Are The Bomb

My Grandparents are without a doubt the most amazing people in my life. They’ve always been there to support, guide, tell me off, bail me out with money issues in the past, feed me, teach me and most of love me no matter how smelly my attitude was as a child. My Grandparents babysit P1 every Tuesday and Thursday – …

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 …

I Never Imagined

Blogging has become a huge part of my life. Before I started Life With Pink Princesses I had a blog over at blogspot, over there I only posted a couple of times a week. But here, I clearly post more, this is because I love the feedback I get and the ease of connecting with other bloggers. I had my …

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 …

I’m So Proud

Ok just a “I’m so proud of my daughter” moment… This little lady is amazing. Both my girls are amazing but it’s currently 4am and this particular daughter has just woken up for her first night feed. After her usual 9-10pm crying non-stop episode that’s she’s made part of her routine since having her jabs… She finally had her feed …

Children And Pets

There’s so many articles and opinions on children and pets. I was brought up with a variety of animals – my mother was a veterinary nurse for over 15years, all of my childhood memories involve animals in some way of another. So my opinion is that it’s a good idea to introduce children to pets and animals at a young …

I would love to hear everyone’s tips on keeping a house tidy and in working order. You can purchase my eBook here: Becoming …

Why Isn’t It My Sleep Time Now?

I’ve had one of those days when you just sit there and think really?!? Those photos were taken earlier… You would never have guessed that P1 had just been sick. She’s been complaining of feeling sick for a few days now and I’m utterly convinced it’s because she hasn’t been eating properly recently – that’s for another post. She gagged …

DP – The Transporter

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood. As a child I spent many holidays with my Grandparents at a farm. My Grandad had a very close friend who owned a farm in Somerset and we used to go over to help him manage the farm. I …
