De-Cluttering Our Life

I feel like I’m fighting an endless battle with my bedroom. We have so much stuff and not enough storage. I want to de-clutter. I know for a fact half the stuff in this bedroom will never get used or is just pointless. So it’s my mission to revamp this bedroom. It’s going to be hard, there’s little working space …

My Stressed Pre-Schooler

Something seems to be troubling P1. I’m not sure if it’s the nursery teaching her about going to school, the fact her biological Dad was mentioned at the hospital last week or even something to do with P2. Recently, she’s been very attached to me. Crying when I drop her off to my GrandParents or getting clearly upset when dropping …

Tonight

Tonight, I’ve had a little too much to drink. Tonight, I’m on cold nine. Tonight, I have the whole future with my OH ahead of me. Tonight, I’m wearing my beautiful white dress. Tonight, I have the biggest grin on my face. Tonight, I have a wedding ring on my finger. Tonight, I’m watching my two beautiful girls in their …

233 Days Left AND Counting

I’ve currently had 160 days of my maternity leave. It seems like forever since I was at work. I’m very nervous about returning. We’ve decided to extend my maternity leave to the full entitlement, which makes my return date 2nd January. That makes me a little more relaxed but so much has changed since I was there. I feel like …

DP – Hi, Mom!

Today is Mother’s Day in the United States. Wherever in the world you are, write your mother a letter. I haven’t participated in the Daily Prompts for a while, there hasn’t been a topic that’s made me want to write about it! But I quite like today’s. Hi Mum, I just want to say thank you. No matter what you’ve …

Absent Mother

I was apart from P2 for the longest time today. I’d decided I deserved a break… I didn’t exactly need one, I just fancied one. She was without me for 4hours!!! It was slightly stressful to start with. My OH was very nervous and reluctant to leave her with my parents. But I persuaded him and we went off the …

Sorry, One Of Those 4am Mum Moments

Well the birds are tweeting, I don’t think I’ve ever heard birds in this house?!, and I’ve just been woken up by P2. So?! What makes this unusual, special even, is that P2 went to sleep early last night. My OH went to the gym, P1 was in bed and my parents also went to bed early. Leaving just P2 …

Why Do You Ask These Things?

It’s hard to answer questions you don’t have the answers to. Last time we had this conversation I was pregnant, and I’d cried so much that I’d made myself physically sick. How do you answer a four year olds question to why see doesn’t see her biological father?! If I know where they live why can’t I speak to them?! …

Blast That Baby Fat

P2 is now three months old and I think it’s about time that I start trying to get my body back to it’s pre pregnancy, ironing board state. I’m breast feeding and I’m happy with my weight. I just want to tone up a bit more and maybe get rid of my flubby tummy. So yesterday I took part in …

The Start Of Growth Tests

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that P1 was due to have an appointment at the hospital regarding her growth. They’ve been tracking her height and weight at the child development center where she has her physiotherapy sessions for the past two years and they have noticed that her growth has slowed which is concerning. Well that appointment didn’t happen …

Green Pomelo – Minky Baby Pink Cloth Nappy Review

So there’s a positive line on the pregnancy test. You’re having a baby! Now it’s time to start getting excited and buying lots of bits for your new arrival. I bet the majority of you naturally thought about all the nappies you’d have to stock up on. The first ever disposable nappy was invented in 1948. A baby will use …

I’m Missing Out On Things

Look at the frown on that face!! P2 has become more reluctant to fall asleep in her bouncer or car seat. In fact she’s quite reluctant to fall asleep anywhere during the day. And when she eventually does, it’s for a quick half hour power nap… and that’s if we’re lucky! I don’t know if this is an age thing?! …

Touch Me

It’s so crazy how grown up P2 is becoming and so fast she’s doing it! In the past few days she’s really begun to touch things, hold things and bite things – uh oh! Don’t worry, she isn’t suffocating herself… Yesterday, she was absolutely fascinated by my OHs top. Staring intensely at it, trying to reach forwards to grab it. …

Pit Of My Stomach

I had a really horrible Mummy moment at 4am this morning. That really sick feeling something’s wrong. My precious baby girl was still asleep. This probably wouldn’t have worried me as she used to wake between 3-4am. But for the past few days she’s had a feed somewhere between 1-2am. I jumped up, not even knowing what the time was …
